No one at IFC is sleeping right now. Why? Because we’re like kids on Christmas Eve and we’re just too excited to settle down and do something as boring as slumber. Who can sleep when we know that in just a few short months Scott Aukerman’s new variety comedy show, Comedy Bang! Bang!, will be on our air.
You may recognize Scott Aukerman, from the series of interviews he did with such comedy notables as Judd Apatow, Sarah Silverman, Zach Galifianakis and Seth Rogen here on Comedy Death Ray. Or perhaps you know him from his popular podcast Comedy Bang! Bang!, which was formerly known as Comedy Death Ray. Maybe you recognize him from his appearance at IFC’s Crossroads House at SXSW last year?
However you are acquainted with Aukerman, or even if you don’t know him at all, beginning in June, Aukerman is going to own your Friday nights when he hosts the new comedy variety show Comedy Bang! Bang! Based on his podcast, each episode of the new show features sketches, games, music, character pieces and visits from celebrity guests. Adding to the general awesomeness, Reggie Watts is the show’s band leader and the show comes from the production company of Tim & Eric. There’s no way this won’t be must-see television. Watch the promo below, and join us in our excitement-induced insomnia.
“Comedy Bang! Bang!” comes to IFC in June 2012
