5 Brilliant Spoofs From Comedy Bang! Bang!

Celebrate the 100th episode of Comedy Bang! Bang this Friday starting at 11P on IFC.

Posted by on

From overly scripted reality shows to full-blown musicals, CB!B! has taken a stab at just about everything you love and hate from pop culture over the years. To get you ready for the 100th episode, here are a few of our favorite takedowns. What will Scott Aukerman and “Weird Al” spoof this week? Better tune in to back-to-back episodes Friday starting at 11P to find out.

5. The Walking Dead

Cudi Dead

Judging by the ratings, everyone loves The Walking Dead, but that doesn’t mean it can’t get a bit repetitive at times. It seems like every episode the crew goes out on some scavenging mission, only to see a character we can’t even remember the name of become zombie, er, “Walker” food. CB!B! honed in on the ridiculousness of this, highlighting how intensely the death of each character is handled before we quickly move on and forget they were ever on the show. Hey, at least in this sketch it’s the black guy who survives for once.


4. CSI: Miami and Basically Every Cop Procedural

Dane Looker

Ever notice how the title of every cop show on TV describes the protagonist’s specialty? (The Mentalist, anyone?) CB!B! came up with their own procedural in the form of Dane Looker, a faux network drama about a Danish cop who’s happens to be the best of the best at looking for missing people. Also, he’s quite the looker. There’s just one problem: While he’s trying to solve his cases, everyone asks what the deal is with his name. Did he get into this line of work because of his last name? Did he change his name when he took the job? And what’s with all those catchphrases? “Looks can be deceiving.” “Look… what the cat dragged in.” Looks like someone is a little obsessed with his own name.


3. Temptations Musical

Kid Cudi Temptations

Kid Cudi proved he has the chops to make it on the Great White Way in Ain’t Too Proud to Beg, the Temptations musical that somehow didn’t take home a boatload of Tonys.


2. Phantom of the Opera

Casey Wilson CBB

Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber (Paul F. Tompkins) is a regular presence on CB!B!, and he honored the show with a special musical extravaganza in season two. When the Phantom of the Studio (Thomas Lennon) kidnaps guest Casey Wilson, Scott springs into action (and song) in this spot-on parody of musical theater excess.


1. The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Rocky Horror CBB

CBB‘s Season 4 Halloween episode was one big excuse to slip through a time warp and send up everyone’s favorite cult hit, The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The episode starts off on a familiar note: A straight-laced couple has a breakdown on a rainy night, and goes in search of help. What they find will horrify and delight them. With show-stopping musical numbers  and a pitch perfect recreation of the movie that is more celebration than send-up, this is a must watch for fans of CB!B! and Rocky Horror. We won’t be getting the image of Scott channeling Tim Curry out of our heads anytime soon.

Rev Up

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
