Odor in the court! The "highest court in the land" just took on a new meaning in this series from comedian Doug Benson that features "Judge Doug" as he gets high and rules on real small claims court cases. Benson and his comedian friends assume the roles of Judge and Bailiff of "The High Court."
By combining Benson's affable stoner approach to life with the television staple that is courtroom reality shows, this series 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 ... under the influence of marijuana. All rise for Your Highness ... This is "The High Court" with Judge Doug Benson.
"The High Court" is produced by JASH and Propagate. Executive produced by Benson, Bruce Smith, JASH's Daniel Kellison and Mickey Meyer and Propagate's Ben Silverman, Howard Owens and Kevin Healey, the series' concept is loosely born from Benson and JASH's popular YouTube show, "Getting Doug with High." Gary Mann and Daniel Wolfberg are the executives in charge of production for Comedy Central.
