Last year Doug Benson came to Philadelphia, kicked the shit out of his shows, kicked the shit out of his interview with us, and then rolled out of this city and left it in his comedic wake.

Doug is back and ready to kill a stand-up show on Wednesday, June 22, at Helium in Philadelphia (the show is currently sold out) and then he’ll be hosting TWO of his popular podcasts, “Doug Loves Movies,” on Saturday, June 25th and Sunday, June 26th. Both shows will begin at 4:20 p.m. and tickets are still available for the Sunday show only.

Check out this link for tickets to this stand-up show if any become available and this link for tickets to his podcast on the weekend.

Usually we feature comedians that enjoy sports, blah blah blah, but Doug is too funny to deny an interview to, so we’re quite happy to welcome back (the now recurring) Doug Benson to The Coggin Toboggan.

We touch on conspiracy theories involving “League of their Own,” if remakes suck, and who the best actor/wrestler of all time was in this classy interview filled with mystery and intrigue.

Doug Benson Loves Movies and The Coggin Toboggan loves Doug Benson. What’s not to love?! The prolific comedian is readying the release of his newest album, “Promotional Tool,” on June 9. It’s his eighth album in eight summers, all recorded on April 20 the year it is released.

Between editing his latest album and performing stand-up, he’s touring the country and recording his fantastic Podcast “Doug Loves Movies,” which he’ll be presenting at the Helium Comedy Club in Philadelphia on Saturday, June 27, just three days after performing stand-up at Helium as well, on Wednesday, June 24.
When not performing stand-up or talking about movies on his podcast, you can see Doug in his web series “Getting Doug with High” or performing movie interruptions with special guests in front of a live audience.
Usually we feature comedians on The Coggin Toboggan who love sports as much as we do, but damnit, we also love movies, and Doug loves movies, so The Coggin Toboggan loves Doug who loves movies. Follow us? It’s a natural fit.
Go see Doug perform stand-up on Wednesday, June 24, and see him record “Doug Loves Movies” with several super secret guests. You can buy tickets to both, here¬†or check out his upcoming performances at www.douglovesmovies.com.
