“Wipeout” host John Henson prepares for wedding

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

Wedding bells are going to ring for comedian and ‘Wipeout’ host John Henson, who reveals that he and Chicago improv actress Jill Benjamin are into preparations for their nuptials in June. Deep into preparations.

‘We have to make sure the caterer is prepared, the bar stocked. There are so many details. It’s like an entire industry,’ observes the funny man, for whom this will be a second marriage. ‘You start to feel like, 25 years from now, the only thing anyone will remember is, did you have monogrammed napkins?’

First, Henson’s hosting this week’s ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?’ — a gig he loves. ‘I now have even more respect for Meredith (Vieira) and Regis (Philbin). You see that screen in front of Meredith on the show? It’s like an air traffic control board it’s so complicated. To manage that while keeping up an ongoing conversation takes some doing.’
