The show features a roll call of who’s hot in comedy right now. Stars like Zach Galifianakis, Aziz Ansari, Patton Oswalt, David Cross, Bob Odenkirk, Brian Posehn, Kristen Schaal, Chris Hardwick, Thomas Lennon, Nick Kroll, Paul Scheer, Tim Heidecker, Doug Benson, Paul F. Tompkins, Anthony Jeselnik, Chelsea Peretti, Neil Hamburger, Garfunkel & Oates, Matt Besser / Todd Glass, Jimmy Pardo, and, of course, Kurt Braunohler. Fittingly the show is hosted by Comedy Bang! Bang! host Scott Aukerman.

THE WORLD DODGEBALL SOCIETY is a friendly neighborhood adult co-ed community centered around, but not limited to the game of dodgeball. While dodgeball is their bread and butter (operating games and leagues internationally), they strive to be about more than just that. Gathering fun-loving folks from all walks of life and supporting and connecting the community is their goal. They pride themselves on being able to give back more than they take in the neighborhoods they play, whether it be through dodgeball events, volunteering, fundraising or activism.
