Tonight! Tonight! Just like the Smashing Pumpkins and West Side Story and a million children on Christmas Eve say, tonight! tonight! Tonight at 10/9c Comedy Bang! Bang! and Bunk premiere right here on IFC. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome Scott Aukerman, Reggie Watts, Kurt Braunohler and all their many guests and contestants on to our channel.
Comedy Bang! Bang! starts at 10/9c. In case you somehow missed the buzz that’s been building up online and on the streets, Comedy Bang! Bang! is based on Scott Aukerman’s (co-creator/director/producer, Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis; writer/performer, Mr. Show) popular podcast of the same name. The show cleverly riffs on the late night talk show format, infusing celebrity
appearances and comedy sketches with a tinge of the surreal. In each episode, Aukerman chats with his guests (Jon Hamm! Amy Poehler! Michael Cera! Elizabeth Banks! Zach Galifianakis! Seth Rogen!) and banters to the beats provided by bandleader, Reggie Watts, the one-man musical mastermind.
Here’s a brief glimpse into the show:
Follow those 30 hilarious minutes of Comedy Bang! Bang! with the absurd and laugh-out-loud funny game show Bunk. Bunk is a comedy game show where a panel of comedians compete in inane challenges to win surreal prizes. Contestants are armed with nothing but their wits as they respond to images they’ve never seen before, make up songs on the spot, complete drawing and sculpture challenges and interact with modern dancers, puppies, babies, gospel singers and more, all under the watchful eye of host Kurt Braunohler. The fun starts tonight at 10:30 p.m. ET right after Comedy Bang! Bang! See you there!
