Boys don’t cry. big girls don’t cry. But we’ll admit it: We miss Comedy Bang! Bang! and there is a tear in our beer ’cause we’re wishing it was still here. Luckily we have re-airings to help us get through these tough times. And when the show is off the air, we’ll always have the clips of Scott Aukerman and Reggie Watts making their incomparable guests (Jon Hamm! Amy Poehler! Seth Rogen!) feel right at home on the lovely set of Comedy Bang! Bang! The clips are a treasure trove of some of the best bits from the show’s first season, including, of course, the entire web series Reggie Makes Music featuring the mad musical skills of Tenacious D, Ed Helms, and Paul Rudd among many other excellent guests.

So when we are not crying into our pillows or lighting candles at our Scott Aukerman shrine praying for one more installment of Celebrity Advice with Andy Samberg, Patton Oswalt, and Bob Odenkirk, we’re watching clips. Which is when we realized that we hadn’t posted this delightful clip of Weird Al Yankovic and Jon Heder. It’s like Christmas in August! Please to enjoy:

Five Reasons To Miss Comedy Bang! Bang!

There hasn’t been a new episode of Comedy Bang! Bang! in almost two weeks. Not a peep out of Scott Aukerman. No visits by Elizabeth Banks, Paul F. Tompkins, Adam Scott or Weird Al Yankovic. No new songs by Reggie Watts. No catchy tunes by Ed Helms, Paul Rudd, or Tenacious D. It’s been two whole weeks since we got a new episode! TWO WEEKS. Well, almost two weeks. But who’s keeping track? Do you know how long it’s been since we heard Amy Poehler sing? At least 12 hours. What can we say? We’re obsessed. And you should be too.

Here are five reasons you should be missing Comedy Bang! Bang! as much as we are:

1. Scott Aukerman

Watch Scott learn how to be a talk show host from Andy Samberg, Patton Oswalt, and Bob Odenkirk:

2. Reggie Watts

Watch him sing about friendship and pie with Michael Cera and you’ll start missing him, too:

3. Jon Hamm doesn’t stop by our couch ….sigh. Luckily he is happy to settle in on Scott Aukerman’s sofa:

Watch Jon Hamm be Jon Hamm in this Jon Hamm worthy clip

4. Seth Rogen

Remember that time that Topher Grace tried to shoot Seth Rogen and then Will Arnett stopped him? Good times:

5. We need more recipes from David Cross, stat:

Tonight starting at 10/9c are the season finales of both Comedy Bang! Bang! and Bunk, which is …well, hard to accept. So we turned to the internet in our time of need. In between the LOL cats, .gifs, and memes, we found some helpful advice for coping with our grief. We think it will help you, too:

A eulogy is a well-crafted speech intended to commemorate a loved one who has died. It is usually presented at a memorial service or funeral by someone who was close to the deceased and knows them well.

Why, that’s us!

A eulogy may contain:

A condensed life history of the person who has died

Comedy Bang! Bang! is hosted by Scott Aukerman, who may have been raised by wolves that would explain why he doesn’t know what a birth certificate is, and is soundtracked by one man band Reggie Watts who has the most enviable hair in all the land. Bunk host Kurt Braunohler hates shoes. In their premiere season on IFC both Comedy Bang! Bang! and Bunk produced ten fun-filled, action packed, celebrity studded episodes.

Details about family, friends, work/career, interests, and achievements

Comedy Bang! Bang! had lots of friends, including Andy Samberg, Elizabeth Banks, Seth Rogen, Weird Al Yankovic, Jack Black, Michael Cera, and, of course, Jon Hamm.

Bunk had contestants like Chris Gethard, Eugene Mirman, Alex Borstein, Kumail Nanjiani, and Bobby Moynihan play games like Dong Swap:

Favorite memories of the deceased

Remember that time Topher Grace tried to shoot Seth Rogen?

Favorite poems, songs, quotes, or religious writings

Well, Bunk did propose some improvements to the Last Supper. That’s close enough to religious writings, right?

And God visited the set of Comedy Bang! Bang!

As for music, well Reggie Watts has that covered. Here he is with Ed Helms:

The most touching and meaningful eulogies are written from the heart. A eulogy does not have to be perfect. Whatever you write and deliver will be appreciated by the people in attendance.

Phew! And if we’re laying bets on whether they are going to heaven or hell, well, must we remind you that Comedy Bang! Bang! got a pitch from God himself? And here’s Bunk shaming puppies:
