Plot Synopsis

Loosely born from comedian Doug Benson and JASH's YouTube show, "Getting Doug with High," THE HIGH COURT is a 15-minute series that features Benson presiding over the highest court in the land as he adjudicates real small claims court cases. Real people. Real cases. Really high judge. Both parties agree in advance to have the case settled in The High Court as "Judge Doug" hears both sides and then retires to his chambers with a guest bailiff to get very stoned and deliberate. The participants are not actors. They are the actual people who have already either filed suit or been served a summons to appear in a U.S. municipal court. And all decisions rendered by Judge Doug are highly binding. THE HIGH COURT airs at Midnight ET/PT each weeknight (Mon-Thu) on Comedy Central, with back-to-back new episodes Thursday night. In the series opener, "Someone Is Paying for This Tow Job" with a little help from guest bailiff Tiffany Haddish, Judge Doug Benson gets high and rules in a dispute over a towed car.
Comedy Central premiered the season finale of THE HIGH COURT late night Thursday, March 23, 2017 (early morning Friday, March 24) from Midnight-12:30am ET/PT, showing back-to-back new episodes. In the night's first new episode (Midnight), "Smoked-Out Couch," Judge Doug and the Lucas Brothers hear a dispute over two stoner friends' damaged couch. Then, in the season ender (12:15am), "Driving Buds Bad Behavior," guest bailiff Slink Johnson provides much-needed assistance when sobriety, weed and money collide in Judge Doug's courtroom.
