What's better than getting high and watching stand-up comedy? Getting high and watching stand-up about getting high.

Comedians are known for pushing social boundaries, so it's no surprise that weed is a major topic of discussion in many stand-up routines. If you need any proof that many comedians are stoners just like us, here are eight stand-ups featuring some of their funniest marijuana moments.

Tom Segura — 'Disgraceful'

Why watch high?

Since gaining exposure through his three-special deal with Netflix, Tom Segura has been very vocal about his weed use. In Segura's third Netflix special, Disgraceful, he cracks some highly relatable jokes about buying weed from sketchy sources, disagreeing with his dad about weed, and how children in the future will never believe our stories about strict weed laws.

Funniest weed joke?

Segura tells the story of his 15-year-old self buying weed from a guy in a solo trailer. The weed dealer tells Segura to watch the trailer while he goes to retrieve the weed, but before he leaves instructs Segura to “blast” anyone who enters with a shotgun — with the exception of the dealer's mom. Segura stressed out, recounting, “I go, 'Can we get a description before we agree to terms? How about a height and weight on old mom?'”

Nick Swardson — 'Seriously, Who Farted?'

Why watch high?

Funniest weed joke?

There's nothing worse than being violently too high. Where it's horrifying. Like, you know that feeling when you get way too high and you have, like, that inner monologue where you're like 'Just breathe, man, just breathe. You're gonna be fine. Everything's gonna be okay, man. Nobody knows you're too high. Just breathe. All right, smile at everybody. [He makes a terrifying grin.]  OK, that was the worst thing you could have ever done. They just called the police.' ”

I did not leave. It was a long bomb. It was a fucking nightmare.'”

Joe Rogan — 'Triggered'

Why watch high?

To say that cannabis activist Joe Rogan discusses his love for weed in his comedy and podcasts would be a major understatement. In his first Netflix special, “Triggered,” Rogan talks all things weed from getting high as a parent to getting ripped on edibles and talking to dolphins.

Funniest weed joke?

Rogan announces that he's “high as fuck” and starts ranting about how the people making edibles need to slow down. He jokes, “I ask the dude at the pot store, I go 'Hey man, how strong are the gummy bears?' [...] He's like, 'El Diablo. El Diablo.' 'Fuck man. How much should I take?' 'Just the leg.' 'Just the leg? Why are you selling whole bears? What the fuck are you trying to prove, man?' ”

Doug Benson — 'Doug Dynasty'

Why watch high?

Doug Benson is one of the quintessential stoner stand-up comics. His jokes are irreverent and silly but, when you think about it, pretty darn clever. Basically, all of his material has something to do with getting high, so if you're high and want to watch stand-up you can relate to, you really can't miss this one.

Funniest Weed Joke?

Benson explained that he used to think meth and marijuana shouldn't both be Schedule I drugs, but then he discovered that meth is actually Schedule IItwo on the Drug Enforcement Administration's (DEA) Federal Controlled Substances Act. He said, “Like, marijuana is considered to be much worse than meth by the DEA. You know, the bottom line is I get high and watch “Breaking Bad,” I don't watch “Weeds” on meth.”

Oh yeah, and Lil Jon shows up and says some stuff near the end.

Funniest weed joke?

Williams tells the crowd that there's a chemical in weed called “fuck it,” and, “If you can just get that in your system, it could change your life. Some of y'all be crying about bills you can't pay. [...]  Just hit the blunt one time and see if it don't change your perception of what's important in life. You just, 'I don't know what I'ma do about this light. [He mimics a blunt hit.] Fuck them goddamn lights. I got 12 candles, I've been waiting to burn them bitches.' ”

You ever get so high you, like, watch the credits? And you're like, 'Who directed this? He did a good job.' I think that's what IMDB was created for people who just get high and they're like, 'Where is this guy from?' And then you're like, 'Oh, there he is! He was in 'The Patriot!' ”
