Attention, facial hair fighters! We don’t mean to alarm you, but there’s something you need to know about beards: At some point they stop growing. Now now, don’t cry. Once you stop wailing and rending your clothes, we will tell you that it’s nothing to be embarrassed about it. It’s completely natural. There’s no need to talk to a trusted clergyman, member of the family or even your beloved barber. It’s a phenomenon called Terminal Beard Length and it happens to the best beards out there, including the one-time champion for Beard Team USA, Aarne Bielefeldt.

When Aarne finds himself in a beard competition slump, he decides to take matters into his own hands and toothbrush and curling iron. Yep, Aarne is planning on switching things up during the third season of Whisker Wars and is dipping his toe into the competitive waters of the freestyle category.

Watch this new clip from the second season of Whisker Wars and tune in for a new episode on Friday at 10/9c:

We’re barely halfway through February, but this year’s Too Many Cooks Award for the most bizarre comedy project is already a lock. Blindsiding the world with greatness without any warning, Funny or Die released a 50-minute Donald Trump parody starring an unrecognizable Johnny Depp as Donny.

Ron Howard introduces this “lost” 1988 TV movie adaptation of Trump’s how-to manual The Art of the Deal produced with the retro quality of a Wendy’s training video. Along for the big hair and shoulder pads flashback are Patton Oswalt, Alfred Molina, Todd Margaret‘s Jack McBrayer, Andy Richter, Rob Huebel, Jason Mantzoukas, Paul Scheer, and Michaela Watkins as Ivana — as well as many Reagan-era surprises like a cameo from that loveable cat eater ALF and a theme song by Kenny Loggins.

Much like Eric Jonrosh of The Spoils Before Dying and The Spoils of Babylon fame, “Trump” writes, directs, and narrates his own epic tale of real estate wheelings-and-dealings. Check out the trailer below, and head over to Funny or Die to watch the full Donald Trump’s The Art of the Deal movie before the real Donald sics his army of lawyers on Will Ferrell and company. (For more bizarro Johnny Depp characters, be sure to catch Charlie and the Chocolate Factory this month on IFC.)

When it comes to beards, too much is never enough. So we know that Whisker Wars isn’t enough for those hankering for facial hair fueled drama. To further satiate fans of the competitive bearding world, IFC is happy to host the animated web series Total Bearding Network. Voiced by our beloved adopted comic Chris Gethard (The Chris Gethard Show, The Other Guys, This American Life) and comedian Jim Santangeli (CollegeHumor Originals, FunnyorDie.com), Total Bearding Network shines a spotlight on the world of competitive bearding in a funny animated format. “I’ve always dreamed of competing in the facial hair circuit but I’m only able to grow the awkward peach fuzz of a prepubescent boy,” commented Gethard about his role as host of Total Bearding Network. “So I’m forced to experience the testosterone-charged, nail-biting competitions of this global sports phenomenon as a spectator.”

In each episode, viewers get to see the world through the eyes of veteran former champion Ken Guntruck (Santangeli) and his facially hair-challenged co-anchor, Pete Lewis (Gethard). Written and directed by Dan Meth (CollegeHumor Original), additional webisodes of Total Bearding Network will be posted weekly online through December. Future coverage from the competitive bearding sportscasters includes an exposé on a performance-enhancing drug scandal, an inspiring interview with the first woman to compete in professional bearding and a highlight on the birthplace of bearding: Brooklyn, NY.

The second season of Whisker Wars has a lot of new drama from some familiar faces including Gotham City Beard Alliance member Myk O’Connor and Beard Team USA’s star Jack Passion. While last year the two didn’t have too much to say to each other, this year, though, all bets are off and this new clip from the reality show’s second season shows why the two are at each others beards. Watch below for a hint of the high drama that runs through the new season of Thom Beers’ Whisker Wars.

Want to catch up on last season’s action before jumping beard first into the new season? Head to our new Stream Room where you can watch the season finale of Whisker Wars from last year and remember all the anxiety, tension, and big bushy beards as the Beardsmen arrive at the ultimate whisker proving ground: The World Championships in Trondheim, Norway. Captain Phil Olsen predicted a hefty medal count for Beard Team USA, with former champion Burke Kenny determined to reclaim his lost title, and two-time World Champion Jack Passion resolved to solidify his dominance and bolster his beard’s commercial appeal. However it’s all jeopardized when a secret long-standing rift between Phil and the World Association surfaces at the event. The now-independent Austin Facial Hair Club seeks formal admission in the World Beard and Mustache Association, and the team’s rising-stars Allen Demling and Alex LaRoche hope to score their first ever World Titles for Texas. Head to the Stream Room to watch the full episode now.
