MOVIES AND MARIJUANA: In addition to his “Doug Loves Movies” podcast, Benson also hosts a video podcast called “Getting Doug with High”.

Comedy. Film. Podcasts. They’re all a part of Atlanta culture, so it only makes sense to combine them. Comedian Doug Benson, along with surprise guests, will discuss movies (and exchange witty banter) with a live recording of “Doug Loves Movies” at Variety Playhouse. Guests are never announced beforehand, but there have been a wide variety since the podcast began in 2006 including Dan Harmon, Scott Aukerman, and Amy Poehler. Benson and his guests not only discuss film, but also participate in feature segments and games. Podcast lengths vary, but typically fall somewhere between 80-100 minutes. Recording starts at 4:20 p.m. — cough — so get there on time and be ready for some laughs.

$20. Sun., Aug. 12. Doors at 3:30 p.m. Show at 4:20 p.m. Variety Playhouse. 1099 Euclid Ave. www.ticketfly.com/purchase/event/1627872. 404-524-7354.
