Who ya gonna call? If you’re looking for a hearty helping of the funniest videos the Internet has to offer this week, then he answer is us.

From Obama’s smooth jam to the return of Fourvel on tonight’s brand new Comedy Bang! Bang!, here are five funny things from this week you need to watch.

1. Obama Slow Jams the News

On the heels of his endorsement of Hillary Clinon for the Democratic presidential candidate, Obama achieved a first for a sitting Commander-in-Chief: he recapped his eight years in office with a smooth, soulful jam.


2. Alien in Under 3 Minutes

The story of the snarling, elusive xenomorph spans seven feature films and several video games and novels over nearly four decades. But with simple Terry Gilliam-inspired animation and a comprehensive knowledge of the mythos, Mashable’s “TL;DW” series tackles the entire Alien franchise in under three face-hugging minutes. (Click here to find out when Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection are airing this month on IFC.)


3. Ghostbusters Casts Unite

We’re fast approaching the release of the new Ghostbusters movie, which means new paranormal investigators Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, and Leslie Jones are starting to hit the talk show rounds. Jimmy Kimmel kicked things off by uniting the new ‘Busters with OGBs Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, and Annie Potts. The two generations of proton pack-slingers discussed everything from fan tattoos to the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, while Murray summed up his reasons for finally agreeing to do another Ghostbusters movie: “It was only cause I knew these girls were funny.” And of course, everyone danced to Ray Parker Jr.’s performance of the classic theme song. (For more Kristen Wiig, pick up The Spoils Before Dying on DVD now.)


4. Beavis and Butt-Head Perform “Da Rockwilder”

Along with Mystery Science Theater 3000, metalhead critics Beavis and Butt-Head offered snarky real-time commentary long before live tweeting was a thing. And although it probably wouldn’t jibe with their musical genre sensibilities, mashup extraordinaire Mylo the Cat combined the animated duo and the Method Man and Redman collaboration single “Da Rockwilder.” As always, Mylo matches words to action with a deft eye and thumping beat.


5. Fourvel returns to Comedy Bang! Bang!

Everyone’s favorite stabby orphan is back to his old tricks tonight on Comedy Bang! Bang!. The mischievous little guy (played by Bobby Moynihan) stops by Scott’s couch to offer his tips for “How to Make it in Hollyweird.” You’ll have to tune in to back-to-back Comedy Bang! Bang! episodes tonight starting at 11P to see who survives Fourvel’s latest reign of tiny terror.

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.
