Top of the pods: this month’s comedy podcast pick (one for movie lovers)

Ben Williams

Doug Loves Movies

Who’s Doug? Doug Benson. A laidback, stoner comic from San Diego. Ever seen that marijuana doc ‘Super High Me’? He’s that guy.

And he loves movies? Damn straight. He’s a film nerd, but not in a ‘I only like obscure arthouse cinema’ way – he loves a good blockbuster.

So what’s the podcast? Benson sits down with actors and fellow comedians to play silly movie-related games. Like, ‘Now Buscemi, Now You Don’t’, where guests have to guess which of three films Steve Buscemi hasn’t been in. Or ‘Whose Tag Line Is It Anyway?’ where they have to guess the movie from the tag line alone. It’s all pretty loose.

What’s the calibre of guest? Zach Galifianakis, Sarah Silverman, Amy Poehler, Edgar Wright and Jon Hamm have all joined Benson in the past.

Is it recorded live? It is! And for the first time ever, it’s coming to London this week. Catch Benson and pals at the Leicester Square Theatre, Saturday August 8.
