Comedy Bang! Bang! won’t be back on TV until the fall, but on the internet CB!B! never sleeps. So when we asked fans to create their favorite CB!B! Pokémon crossovers, it wasn’t long until we were able to catch them all. See some of the most legendary CB!B! Pokémon below, and tweet any new ones you encounter in the wild to @ComedyBangBang.

1. Lauren Lapkus

Lauren Lapkus is a fan favorite thanks to her crazy characters on the CB!B! podcast and TV show. Meanwhile, “Lauren Lapras” is similarly one of the most popular water type Pokémon and would fit right in alongside her CB!B! counterpart in Jurassic World.


2. Victor & Tiny (Not Willy)

When Victor and Tiny (Brendon Small) are guests on the podcast, it’s like they’re two peas in a pod. So it’s no surprise that in the wild, the Victor and Tiny Pokémon has two heads and they have each others’ back, literally.


3. Fourvel

Just like little orphan Fourvel (Bobby Moynihan), this Pokémon can be found wandering the streets looking for scraps and gristle. Although this one has been caught, if you find another in your travels, please keep it away from sharp objects. (Watch what happens when Fourvel hangs out with Tegan and Sara on the Comedy Bang! Bang! couch.)


4. Slow Joey

On the CB!B! TV show, Slow Joey (Haley Joel Osment) is always making grievous errors and is impossibly dim. While one of the rarest Pokémon, the Slow Joey is also one of the easiest to capture due to these similarities to its human namesake.


5. Hey Nong Man

Comedy Bang! Bang!‘s most prolific catchphrase is also one of the rarest Pokémon in the United States. It’s rumored that they often travel in threes, causing a reset before you have the opportunity to successfully capture one.


6. Werner Herzog

Famed director Werner Herzog (Paul F. Tompkins) has a well-documented relationship with nature. The Herzog Pokémon has a similar reverence for the environment and can be found hidden in the trees and bushes awaiting the inevitable demise of man.


7. Big Sue

The world was introduced to Big Sue (Lapkus) in the fifth season of Comedy Bang! Bang!. Unlike her human namesake, this Pokémon doesn’t own the store “Carpets and Rugs, Down There” but does spend its time down there: underground.


8. Tsk-Tsk

One of the original CB!B! Pokémon, Tsk-Tsk appeared early in the first season of Comedy Bang! Bang!. Tsk-Tsk is the polar opposite in temperament of its Pokémon counterpart, the yet-to-be-captured Attaboy.


9. Tim Kalpakis

When you’re out and about looking for new Pokémon to catch, you may hear the distinct call of Tim Kalpakis (CB!B! writer and star of The Birthday Boys). The call sounds eerily similar to the English phrase, “Hey, folks!”


10. The Timekeeper

The Timekeeper (Neil Campbell) is not a mythical creature; he’s 30 years old. But the Timekeeper Pokémon has a much richer and more mystical history. It’s rumored to be the oldest Pokémon of all TIME.

“Lucy, put supper on the stove, my dear, because this ballgame is over!”

Brockmire has officially closed out its rookie season. Miss the finale episode? A handful of episodes? The whole blessed season?? You can see it all from the beginning, starting right here.

And you should get started, because every minute you spend otherwise will be a minute spent not living your best life. That’s right, there are very important life lessons that Brockmire hid in plain sight—lessons that, when applied thoughtfully, can improve every aspect of your awesome existence. Let’s dive into some sage nuggets from what we call the Book of Jim.

Life Should Be Spiked, Not Watered Down.

That’s not just a fancy metaphor. As Brockmire points out, water tastes “awful. 70% of the water is made up of that shit?” Life is short, water sucks, live like you mean it.

There Are Only Three Types of People

“Poor people, rich people and famous people. Rich people are just poor people with money, so the only worthwhile thing is being famous.” So next time your rich friends act all high and mighty, politely remind them that they’re worthless in the eyes of even the most minor celebrities.

There’s Always A Reason To Get Out Of Bed

And 99% of the time that reason is the urge to pee. It’s nature’s way of saying “seize the day.”

There’s More To Life Than Playing Games

“Baseball can’t compete with p0rnography. Nothing can.” Nothing you do or ever will do can be more important to people than p0rn. Get off your high horse.

A Little Empathy Goes A Long Way

Especially if you’ve taken someone else’s Plan B by mistake.

Our Weaknesses Can Be Our Greatest Strengths

Tyrion Lannister said something similar. Hard to tell who said it with more colorful profanity. Wise sentiments all around.

Big Things Come To Those Who Wait

When you’re looking for a sign, the universe will drop you a big one. You’re the sh*t, universe.

And Of Course…

Mommie Dearest Is On Repeat All Mothers Day Long On IFC

The cult-classic movie Mommie Dearest is a game-changer. If you’ve seen it even just once (but come on, who sees it just once?), then you already know what we’re talking about.

But if you haven’t seen it, then let us break it down for you. Really quick, we promise, we’ll even list things out to spare you the reading of a paragraph:

1. It’s the 1981 biopic based on the memoir of Christina Crawford, Hollywood icon Joan Crawford’s adopted daughter.
2. Faye Dunaway plays Joan. And boy does she play her. Loud and over-reactive.
3. It was intended as a drama, but…
4. Waaaaaay over-the-top performances and bargain-basement dialogue rendered it an accidental comedy.
5. It’s a cult classic, and you’re the last person to see it.

Not sold? Don’t believe it’s going to change your life? Ok, maybe over-the-top acting isn’t your thing, or perhaps you don’t like the lingering electricity of a good primal scream, or Joan Crawford is your personal icon and you can’t bear to see her cast in such a creepy light.

But none of that matters.

What’s important is that seeing this movie gives you permission to react to minor repeat annoyances with unrestrained histrionics.

That there is a key moment. Is she crazy? Yeah. But she’s also right. Shoulder nipples are horrible, wire hangers are the worst, and yelling about it feels strangely justified. She did it, we can do it. Precedent set. You’re welcome.

So what else can we yell about? Channel your inner Joan and consider the following list offenses when choosing your next meltdown.

Improperly Hung Toilet Paper

Misplaced Apostrophes

Coldplay at Karaoke

Dad Jokes

Gluten Free Pizza

James Franco

The list of potential pedestrian grievances is actually quite daunting, but when IFC airs Mommie Dearest non-stop for a full day, you’ll have 24 bonus hours to mull it over. 24 bonus hours to nail that lunatic shriek. 24 bonus hours to remember that, really, your mom is comparatively the best.

So please, celebrate Mother’s Day with Mommie Dearest on IFC and at IFC.com. And for the love of god—NO WIRE HANGERS EVER.

Breaking News

From Canada With Love

Baroness von Sketch Show comes to IFC.

Breaking news that (finally) isn’t apocalyptic!

IFC announced today that it acquired acclaimed Canadian comedy series Baroness von Sketch Show, slated to make its US of A premiere this summer. And yes, it’s important to note that it’s a Canadian sketch comedy series, because Canada is currently a shining beacon of civilization in the western hemisphere, and Baroness von Sketch Show reflects that light in every way possible.

The series is fronted entirely by women, which isn’t unusual in the sketch comedy world but is quite rare in the televised sketch comedy world. Punchy, smart, and provocative, each episode of Baroness von Sketch Show touches upon outrageous-yet-relatable real world subjects in ways both unexpected and deeply satisfying: soccer moms, awkward office birthday parties, being over 40 in a gym locker room…dry shampoo…

Indiewire called it “The Best Comedy You’ve Never Seen” and The National Post said that it’s “the funniest thing on Canadian television since Kids In The Hall.” And that’s saying a lot, because Canadians are goddamn hilarious.

Get a good taste of BVSS in the following sketch, which envisions a future Global Summit run entirely by women. It’s a future we’re personally ready for.

Baroness Von Sketch Show premieres later this summer on IFC.
