UNDERRATED 'The Benson Interruption' on Comedy Central: A fixture at the UCB Theatre and Largo, this show led by former "Last Comic Standing" star Doug Benson offers stand-up comedy with a twist. With the heavy-lidded Benson at center stage firing off-the-cuff one-liners at comics such as Patton Oswalt and Nick Swardson as they perform their set, the resulting comedy mashups are often as wild and rewarding as watching two jazz musicians riff off each other. Pictured: Doug Benson onstage at the Upright Citizen's Brigade Theater in Hollywood in 2009.
