Doug Benson

Doug Benson loves movies. So much, in fact, that he made his own movie Super High Me about marijuana, another thing he loves. His love of movies has also brought about his very popular podcast Doug Loves Movies, which has had notable guests such as John Lithgow, Simon Pegg, Elliot Page, and Ethan Suplee. He has three comedy albums available on iTunes and Amazon along with the television and podcast versions of his live show The Benson Interruption.
