Album Review

Taking the spirit of Cheech & Chong into the age of irony, comedian Doug Benson is the closest thing to a professional stoner. From his off-Broadway co-creation The Marijuana-Logues to his docu-parody film Super High Me, Benson wears his Stoner of the Year for 2006 award with pride, hiding the bong only when appearing on less herb-friendly television programs like VH1's Best Week Ever or NBC's Last Comic Standing. His debut album for the Comedy Central label should really come in a blunt rap because Unbalanced Load is so fat with pot humor that it won't hold much interest for anyone who can't tell an indica from a sativa.

No harshed mellows here, just a fine accompaniment for nights filled with snack chips and couch lock.

High Time magazine's Stoner of the Year for 2006, comedian/actor/filmmaker Doug Benson is known for his pot humor, but he's also been able to put the bong down long enough to appear on VH1's Best Week Ever, NBC's Last Comic Standing, and other less herb-friendly television shows. The college dropout moved from San Diego to Los Angeles to try his hand at acting, but when his friend dared him to jump on-stage during a comedy club's open-mike night, Benson was hooked. Years and years of touring took...
