Smoking-Good Stand-Up


Sure, High Times named him the 2006 Stoner of the Year. And, yes, he was co-creator, star and writer of The Marijuana-Logues Off-Broadway, and he recently released his Super High Me doc on DVD. But Doug Benson isn't just about pot humor. The Best Week Ever talking head is just as good when he's befuddled by McGriddles, the word ginormous or his lack of a sex life, and he's at his best when he's reacting to the crowd and his immediate environment. Witness Benson's killer off-the-cuff quips and comebacks — each far more cutting you'd expect from a man of his THC intake — when Benson headlines the Improv at the Majestic Theatre (7430 Northwest 87th Street) today through Saturday. Shows are at 7:30 p.m., with additional 9:45 p.m. shows Friday and Saturday and a 7 p.m. show on Sunday. Tickets cost $15-$17. Call 816-587-4500 for more information.
