What was this Comedy Central series called?

It followed this guy who would talk to his dad sometimes and it was cut together like Jon Benjamin Has a Van. The guy was named something like John Heffman (but that's not it). It was a little like Demitri Martin's show. It's been on within the last four years.

Is it Big Lake? If not, maybe it's something else on the Wikipedia list of Comedy Central shows.

Looking at this list, maybe Jeff Dunham?

Definitely not Jeff Dunham. I looked through that list and couldn't see it... maybe it was on another network. I just remembered it had Norm Macdonald segments in it.

I believe it's The Ben Show with Ben Hoffman. I thought it was hilarious but it was cancelled pretty quickly. Norm appears in it, he talks to his Dad and his psychiatrist.

Yes, that's it! Thank you. Too bad it was cancelled.

He was also a contributor the the long-gone current.tv series Infomania. Some of the clips are still up on youtube, including some segments that he reused for his Comedy Central show.
