Premieres Monday, February 27 at Midnight on Comedy Central®
The “highest court in the land” just took on a new meaning in “The High Court,” a new Comedy Central series from comedian Doug Benson. “THC” is a fifteen-minute strip series featuring “Judge Doug” as he gets high and rules on real small claims court cases. Throughout the twenty-episode first season, Benson and his comedian friends will assume the roles of Judge and Bailiff of “The High Court.” The series premieres Monday, February 27 at midnight, after an all-new episode of “@midnight with Chris Hardwick,” and will air Monday-Thursday at midnight with two back-to-back episodes on Thursday nights from midnight-12:30 a.m. ET/PT.
By combining Benson’s affable stoner approach to life with the television staple that is courtroom reality shows, “The High Court” is a toke of “Judge Judy” mixed with two healthy bong loads of Benson’s own successful comedy talk show, JASH’s “Getting Doug with High.” What you are about to witness is real. The participants are not actors. They are the actual people who have already either filed suit or been served a summons to appear in a U.S. municipal court. Both parties in the suit have agreed to dismiss their court cases and have their disputes settled here, by a stand-up comedian.
