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.

Catch up on full episodes of Comedy Bang! Bang! season five right now on IFC.com and the IFC app.

Inauguration Alternative

Bill Murray On Repeat

It's a movie "Murray-thon" all-day Friday on IFC.

Democrats, Republicans and Millennials agree: 2017 is shaping up to be a spectacle — a spectacle that really kicks into high gear this Friday with the presidential inauguration. Not only will the new POTUS swear in, but all the Country’s highest offices will be filled. It’s a daunting prospect, and to feel a little anxious about it is only normal. But if your anxiety is snowballing into panic, we have a solution:
Bill Murray.

He’s the human embodiment of a mental “Happy Place”, and there’s really no problem he can’t solve. So, with that in mind, how about we all set aside reality for a moment and let Bill take the pain away by imagining a top-shelf White House cabinet filled exclusively by his signature characters. Here are a few hypothetical appointments for your consideration…

Secretary of Defense:
Bill Murray from Stripes

His incompetence is balanced by charm, and dumb luck is inexplicably on his side. America could do worse.

Secretary of State:
Bill Murray from Lost In Translation

A seasoned globetrotter steeped in regional traditions who has the respect of the whole wide world. And he kills Costello in karaoke, which is very important.

Press Secretary:
Bill Murray from Ghostbusters

“Cats and dogs, living together. Mass hysteria.” Dude knows how to brief a room.

Secretary of Health and Human Services:
Bill Murray from What About Bob.

A doctor-approved people person who knows that progress is measured in baby steps.

Secretary of Energy:
Bill Murray from Groundhog Day

Let’s be honest, this world is going to need a lot of do-overs.

Feeling better? Hold on to that bliss. And enjoy a healthy alternative to the inauguration brouhaha with multiple Murrays all Friday long in an IFC movie marathon including Kingpin, Zombieland, Ghostbusters, and Ghostbusters II.

Hank Azaria Gets Thrown A Curve Ball

Brockmire Premieres April 5 at 10P

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.
