Welcome to court where your judge will go into his chambers and do bong hits before he delivers your verdict.
Comedy Central has brought in Doug Benson to be a real life judge, who presides over real small claims court cases. Benson will be presiding over all of the cases with a guest bailiff in the Judge Judy esque courtroom. The cases will be about 15 minutes each and once testimony has been heard Benson and the bailiff will go into chambers and take bong hits before they come back out to render his decision.
“The details get confusing, the numbers get confusing, the names get confusing,” Benson says of judging cases while baked. “What doesn’t get confusing is — just because you’re high, I don’t find that it changes your values, or how you feel about [it] if two people are having an argument, [and] who’s right. It helps me to try to find the humor in all of it — being very high helps a great deal in that regard.”
So if you have any small claims issues you need solved and don’t mind your judge being stoned off his ass, contact the show. The production company will pick up the cost of the settlements.
The High Court premieres on 02/27/2017 at midnight on Comedy Central.
