Doug Benson was a popular stand-up comedian in the late 1980s and 1990s, before he gained even more fame in one of the earliest waves of star podcasters.

He’ll be blending the two at Cobb’s Comedy Club on Saturday, June 10, where Benson will record his “Doug Loves Movies” podcast at a special 4:20 p.m. performance. (4:20 is not an accident — Benson is an outspoken marijuana advocate who made the cannabis documentary “Super High Me.” Benson also hosts the marijuana-themed “Getting Doug With High” video podcast, and the podcast “The Benson Interruption.”)

“Doug Loves Movies” will feature special guests and prizes, but the focus is on the offbeat pop culture comedy of Benson, who is extremely knowledgeable about movies, but keeps the focus on having fun.

“Doug Loves Movies” Live: 4:20 p.m. Saturday, June 10. $20. Cobb’s Comedy Club, 915 Columbus Ave., S.F. www.cobbscomedy.com
