The Benson Interruption was a stand-up comedy show on Comedy Central starring Doug Benson. The show was cancelled after one season. The concept of the show was that three stand-up comedians per episode perform their acts in front of an audience, with Benson sitting on a throne by the side of the stage. When the time to present a humorous punch-line approaches, Benson interrupted the comic with a comment with the intent of adding to the humor of the joke.
The first season aired on Fridays at midnight on Comedy Central.
