With spring’s rainy season hopefully behind us and Memorial Day Weekend (and IFC’s Shark Half-A-Day marathon!) in our sights, there’s no time like the present to settle into the warm weather and shake the doldrums with some funny videos on the ol’ Internet.

From Seth Rogen taking on every part on AMC’s Preacher to a peek at Comedy Bang! Bang!’s “weirdest” season yet, here are five funny things from this week you need to watch.

1. X-Men ’80s Flashback

The X-Men: Apocalypse media blitz offered up a fun throwback this week in the form of an ’80s-style ad for Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters that perfectly captures the sort of cheesy educational spots we used to see all the time while watching Punky Brewster.


2. Comedy Bang! Bang! Gets Weird

It’s Hawaiian shirts and pop-culture parodies this season on Comedy Bang! Bang!. Host Scott Aukerman welcomes “Weird Al” Yankovic to the anthropomorphic stage as the newest CB!B! bandleader. Join Scott and Al as they goof, gag, and galavant as the two gentlemen are wont to do when Comedy Bang! Bang! returns Friday, June 3rd at 11P.


3. Fred Armisen and Kate McKinnon Hang Out in the Park

We’re super excited for Fred’s return to Studio 8H this weekend as the host of Saturday Night Live‘s season finale. Since he’s never hosted before, cast member Kate McKinnon offers up some pointers in the duo’s promo for Saturday’s episode.


4. Seth Rogen Does Preacher

As one of the brains behind AMC’s Preacher series, Seth Rogen wears many hats. Not content with being behind the scenes, Seth made a video for AMC which showcased his acting skills in the roles of Jesse, Tulip, Cassidy, and well, pretty much everyone else on the show. How does Seth’s performance(s) stack up to the actors on the show? You’ll have to catch the premiere of Preacher this Sunday at 10/9c on AMC to find out.


5. Margot Robbie: Australian Psycho

Before he scrubbed his larynx with a bottle brush to play Batman, actor Christian Bale exemplified the unfeeling greed of the ’80s corporate world in American Psycho. And while the public’s animosity toward the top 1% hasn’t abated in the least, Suicide Squad star Margot Robbie nevertheless felt comfortable stepping into the shoes of Patrick Bateman in this almost-shot-for-shot remake of the unsettling adaptation of the Bret Easton Ellis novel.

Unless you’ve somehow missed every episode of the Simpsons since 1989, then surely you know that Hank Azaria is one of the most important character actors of our time. He’s so prolific and his voice is so dynamic that he’s responsible for more iconic personalities than most folks realize. Basically, he’s the great and powerful Oz — except that when you pull back the curtain the truth is actually more impressive. And now Hank is coming to IFC to bring yet another character to the TV pop culture hive mind in the new series Brockmire. Check out the trailer below.

Based on the following Funny or Die short and co-starring Amanda Peet, Brockmire follows the story of imploded major league sportscaster Jim Brockmire as he tries to resurrect his career by calling plays for a floundering minor league team in a podunk town.

The series is written by Joel Church-Cooper (Undateable) and produced by Funny or Die’s Mike Farah and Joe Farrell, meaning that there’s funny in front of the camera, funny behind the camera–funny all around. Sounds like a ball to us.

Brockmire premieres April 5 at 10P on IFC.

Nick Kroll and John Mulaney To Host Spirit Awards

The Spirit Awards Air February 25 LIVE on IFC.

Posted by on

The 2017 Spirit Awards have finally found their frontmen: Nick Kroll and John Mulaney. And it’s no wonder. Just marvel in their splendid chemistry back when they appeared on Comedy Bang! Bang!:

The pair are prolific within the performing arts community: television (Kroll in The League and The Kroll Show, Mulaney as a writer of IFC’s own Documentary Now!), theater (including Broadway’s current Oh Hello Show), and stand-up comedy. In fact, it’s entirely possible that emceeing an awards show is one of the few remaining line items on their professional bucket lists.

It’s important to caveat this announcement, however. Unlike the bigger and more ubiquitously known awards shows, the Spirit Awards are not, well…boring. (We’re talking to you, Oscar.)

They’re funny. They’re honest. They have quality to match the red-carpet fanfare. And that’s alarmingly special. Last year’s show included some legitimately historic moments, like when transgender actress Mya Taylor won best supporting female, or Kate McKinnon’s hilarious and timely parody of Carol. See more highlights here to get the flavor of the Spirit Awards and read all about Film Independent to dig deeper.

The 2017 Spirit Awards air live February 25 at 5P ET exclusively on IFC.
