STG Presents KISW's BJ Shea Comedy Riot Starring Doug Benson at the Neptune on Sunday, April 14, 2013.
The BJ Shea Comedy Riot is back for a fourth year to provide fans of the BJ Shea Morning Experience and KISW an evening of gut-busting comedy! The 2013 Comedy Riot will star Doug Benson along with a special guest. Doug has been featured frequently on The BJ Shea Morning Experience, entertaining listeners with his views on pop culture; BJ himself was also recently featured on Doug’s podcast “I Love Movies.” Past Comedy Riots have included such notable and well-loved comedians as Lisa Lampanelli, Norm McDonald, Jim Norton, Dave Attell, Bill Burr, Jim Breuer, Chris Hardwick, and Craig Gass.
This year, the BJ Shea Comedy Riot is proud to announce Doug Benson as the evening’s headliner! The multi-talented comedian has released comedy albums, starred in his own movies, and even runs a weekly podcast. Doug has been regularly performing comedy for twenty-six years, and his satirical, sarcastic sense of humor has never failed to make an audience laugh! He’s been a regular staple on shows like Best Week Ever, and you might also recognize him as a contestant during the fifth season of Last Comic Standing (for what it’s worth, we think he should’ve won). Most notably, perhaps, was his starring role in the documentary film Super High Me, which became a fast cult favorite, and had the widest opening for a document ever (released on 4/20 in over 1,000 theaters). Currently, you can get your dose of Doug every week with his podcast, Doug Loves Movies, which features a rotating door of celebrity guests, and is still filmed in front of a live audience at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theater in Los Angeles.
