Flagpole Presents: Meet-and-Greet with Doug Benson Saturday

Comedian Doug Benson, known and beloved for his marijuana-obsessed podcasts, movies and stand-up, performs Saturday evening at the Morton Theatre as part of this year’s Slingshot Festival (read our feature on that happening, which includes a short profile of Benson, here).

That showcase kicks off at 8:30 p.m. Saturday with openers Josh Harris and Jonah Ray; Benson takes the stage at 9:30. After the show, fans can head over to Manhattan Cafe to participate in a free meet-and-greet with the headliner himself, sponsored by Slingshot and Flagpole. Grab a drink and chat Benson up, get your picture taken with him, whatever. Just, uh, leave the weed at home. (That goes for you, too, Mayor Denson.)
