I've seen Doug in a few movies/shows and found him somewhat funny butthis special was really just lazy and lacked any cleverness orcreativity. He read tweets on stage, which is pretty bad anyway butalso his riffing on the tweets really didn't enhance it and he reliedon twitter to supply the humour. He rambled pretty incoherently andmostly made jokes about smoking weed.
I really don't see how you could find this more than marginally funnyunless you're absolutely stoned.
If you're looking for something more than background noise, I recommendBill Burr, Jim Jefferies, Louis CK, Aziz Ansari, Mike Birbiglia,Chelsea Peretti, all of which can be found on Netflix.

Spoiler alert: Doug Benson smokes and ingests marijuana. Apologies thatthis review just fully gave away his entire hour-long set at Seattle'sNeptune Theater but you have luckily been spared the boredom of havingto watch it. That Benson drones on about the practice for a full sixtyminutes could be used by anti-drug advocates if they want to make theclaim that pot-smoking makes you boring. To be fair he does read about5 tweets from audience members to pad the performance out to an hourbut stops when one proves to be funnier than he is. Also used to padout the video are an intro and extro showing Doug smoking pot in thealley behind the theater. This is also boring. In short, this reviewwill be rather brief give how little Benson offers to discuss.
Comedian Doug Benson does his first-ever one hour comedy special at Neptune's Theater, Seattle.
