Matt Besser Protests L.A. Marathon For 'This Show Will Get You High' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Upright Citizens Brigade co-founder Matt Besser has taken to the streets for his new Comedy Central sketch special "This Show Will Get You High" -- specifically, by protesting runners in the L.A. marathon for a bit where Besser and his cohorts stage a mock protest against the runners for participating in the marathon.

While this hilarious remote piece may ostensibly poke fun at the Westboro Baptist Church's picket lines protesting everything from Bill Maher to military funerals, it's not uncommon to see angry protesters any time large groups gather, holding up signs portraying Bible verses and messages that attendees will soon be in Hell. A special appearance by counter-protesters and the Mario Brothers only make this video more entertaining. Watch the video for a preview of "This Show Will Get You High," which will air on Comedy Central at the end of the month.
