Your Doug Benson Fill For the Week

You comedy fans out there might already know Doug Benson from his stand up, 'The Benson Interruption' on Comedy Central, or his 2007 film Super High Me. But maybe you didn't know that he performs in LA frequently, and you should really go see him. He is appearing twice this week for different events.

First, he is doing another Doug Loves Movies show at the UCB (5919 Franklin Ave, Hollywood, CA 90028) on Tuesday night, May 24, at 7:30pm for free. You might be familiar with this show; he posts these live performances as a podcast. His guests range from actors to comedians and more, and you won't want to miss some of the people that show up. (Adam Scott from Parks & Recreation and Party Down, Ellen Page from Inception and Juno, and Kevin Smith to name a few.)

It's a half our, it's free, and it's hilarious. Audience members get the change to win prizes as the guests play the Leonard Maltin Game in which you guess a movie from a shrinking cast list. It's typically a weekly show, so if you can't catch it this week, download it on iTunes or check out this page or the UCB calendar for more shows.

Then on Wednesday night, May 25, Benson will be introducing a free sneak preview of The Trip, starring Steve Coogan at 8pm. You have to RSVP through Cinefamily (611 N Fairfax Avenue, Los Angeles, 90036) for this one, and it's first come, first serve so don't wait too long. Show up early, seating starts 30 minutes in advance with no late entry allowed. In this movie, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon travel around the country to sample fancy eateries for Coogan's new job for the Observer. Check out the clip below, it looks like a great movie to catch, especially for free!
