Doug Benson makes an attempt at more relatable comedy. (1:32)

YOU KNOW, AWESOME AND--

YOU KNOW, I FEEL--

AS A COMIC I'M KIND OF YOU KNOW

IN THIS WEIRD POSITION, 'CAUSE

I DON'T REALLY HAVE A HOOK.

YOU KNOW?

I DON'T REALLY HAVE LIKE AN

ANGLE OR A SPECIFIC THING THAT

I DO.

SO, I'VE BEEN TRYING TO THINK

OF SOMETHING THAT WOULD WORK

FOR ME, AND WHAT I'VE DECIDED

ON IS I THINK I MIGHT START

WEARING AN EYE PATCH ON STAGE

AND NOT EVER MENTION IT.

YOU KNOW, JUST DO MY WHOLE SHOW

AND DON'T SAY ANYTHING ABOUT IT.

JUST HAVE AN EYE PATCH ON.

AND THEN AFTERWARDS, PEOPLE

WILL BE LIKE, "OH, I THOUGHT

THAT GUY WAS PRETTY FUNNY,

THE GUY IN THE EYE PATCH."

AND YOU KNOW, NO ONE ELSE IS

GONNA GO, "WHAT GUY IN THE EYE

PATCH?"

YOU KNOW, I'LL BE LIKE THE ONLY

ONE.

I DON'T THINK THERE'S ANY

PIRATES IN STAND UP THAT I'M

AWARE OF.

YOU KNOW?

AND I'M ALSO TRYING VERY HARD

TO COME UP WITH COMEDY THAT'S

MORE RELATABLE, YOU KNOW,

BECAUSE A LOT OF PEOPLE JUST--

LIKE THAT GUY RIGHT THERE--

JUST STARE AT ME MY ENTIRE ACT.

LIKE "WHAT ARE YOU TALKING

ABOUT?"

SO, I'D LIKE TO FINISH TONIGHT

WITH YOU KNOW ONE JOKE THAT'S

MAYBE SOMETHING THAT'S HAPPENED

TO EVERYBODY HERE, AND YOU CAN

ALL RELATE TO IT YOU KNOW FOR

A CHANGE.

SO LET ME TRY THAT.

HAS ANYBODY HERE EVER BEEN

DRIVING ALONG IN THEIR CAR,

SMOKING A CIGARETTE, AND YOU

FLICK IT OUT THE WINDOW AND YOU

DRIVE FOR A FEW MILES, AND YOU

START TO SMELL SMOKE AND YOU

TURN AROUND, AND YOU LOOK IN

THE BACK SEAT AND GRANDMA IS

PLAYING WITH HERSELF?

[LAUGHTER]

NOW HOW MANY PEOPLE COULD HAVE

POSSIBLY SEEN THAT PUNCH LINE

COMING.

THAT WAS PRETTY GOOD.

THAT WAS OUT OF NOWHERE.

[LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE]

OH, MAN!

WHAT A DELIGHTFUL SURPRISE!
