Watch: High Court Hijinks with Judge Doug Benson

The Longstanding Love Affair Between Comedians and Cannabis
Doug Benson

The cases are real… and the judge is really high! In The High Court, both parties agree in advance to have their case settled by Judge Doug Benson, who objectively hears both sides, and then retires to his chambers to get suuuuper baked and deliberate. Really!

Benson (who you’ve likely seen in Getting Doug with High) told Esquire of his being recruited for the gig, “I guess I’m the go-to pot guy.” In Monday’s premiere episode, Judge Doug (with help from guest bailiff Tiffany Haddish) presided over an argument over a towed car. Deliberations involved bong hits and a debate over a confusing word. Was Doug a good judge? Check out the full episode on Comedy Central.
As Benson said to Deadline, “Got a f-ed up legal problem? Who better to solve it than someone who is super f-ed up?” 20 episodes of The High Court have been produced, with guest bailiffs including Rory Scovel, Michael Ian Black, and Reggie Watts. They will air weeknights at midnight on Comedy Central.
