It makes sense that some of the funniest talk show hosts on TV or online would be 420 enthusiasts. From cable network legalization supporters to those whose entire program revolves around cannabis, here are 9 talk show hosts who smoke weed, and will probably light up again.
1. Doug Benson
Our list of the top talk show hosts who smoked weed begins with the comedian whose entire talk show revolves around weed. Doug Benson smokes up his guests in his weekly video podcast, Getting Doug With High. This comedian has made a name for himself through 420 comedy and spoke with us last fall about cannabis. Doug Benson’s dedication to the herb makes him one of the top talk show hosts who smoke weed.
In his High Times interview, Doug spoke to how legalization has made weed comedy less taboo.
“Along the way in my career, as more and more I made marijuana a part of my act and my life, the more I’d hear from people saying, like, well, part of the reason that everybody likes it so much is because of the excitement of it not being legal.”
Doug explained that people are still no less excited to talk about marijuana because more people are smoking weed than ever before. He mentioned that what happens after his shows is typically his favorite part.
“The greatest thing that still exists is that if it is at all possible for me to step outside the club into some sort of alley or something after the show […] pretty much every show I do there are some people out there and we have a nice little session.”
What a life, Doug.
