Comedian Doug Benson to Release "Hypocritical Oaf" on August 31

Funnyman Doug Benson is set to release Hypocritical Oaf in a CD/DVD combo that will hit retail shelves on August 31. If you are bright, you'll notice the title is a play on the Hippocratic Oath.
The set was recorded live on April 20 -yes, 420, both Benson and ARTISTdirect get the joke- at the Acme Comedy Company in Minneapolis. The release on Comedy Central Records comes with a bonus DVD including full, uncensored versions of his two Comedy Central Presents half-hour specials. Uncensored? Now you are speaking my language.
Though he is sometimes "too trunk to dweet," Benson has amassed over 70,000 followers on Twitter with lines including "I have HIV. But don't worry, I still get to draw four more scrabble tiles." Don't be fooled by his laid-back delivery - Benson is as sharp as comics come and his jokes appeal to smokers and non-smokers alike. Covering everything from the importance of time-saving abbreviations such as "deets" to his 2010 "Pot The Vote" tour in California, the former Marijuana-Logues star gets audiences high on laughs.
