The second season of “Comedy Bang! Bang!” kicks off on Friday, July 12 at 10PM ET/PT with 20 all new episodes and a jaw-droppingly impressive line-up of guests. The first ten episodes of the slightly surreal talk show will air from July 12 – September 13, followed by a short fall hiatus before picking back up on Friday, October 18 for ten more episodes. Host Scott Aukerman (co-creator/director/producer, “Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis”; writer/performer, “Mr. Show”) and musical cohort and one-man house band Reggie Watts (“Conan,” “Reggie Watts: Live At Central Park,” Jash.com) both return to “Comedy Bang! Bang!” with their twist on the traditional late night talk show format that infuses celebrity appearances and comedy sketches with a tinge of the surreal.

For their second season of Comedy Bang! Bang! Scott and Reggie will be joined in the studio by Jessica Alba (“Sin City”), Aziz Ansari (“Parks and Recreation”), David Cross (“Arrested Development,” “The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret”), Jim Gaffigan (“Flight of the Concords,” “Bored to Death”), Zach Galifianakis (“The Hangover I,” “II,” “III”), Bill Hader (“Saturday Night Live”), Pee-wee Herman (“Pee-wee’s Playhouse”), Gillian Jacobs (“Community”), Rashida Jones (“Parks and Recreation”), Anna Kendrick (“Pitch Perfect,” “Up in the Air”), Andy Richter (“Conan”), Zoe Saldana (“Star Trek,” “Avatar”), Andy Samberg (“Saturday Night Live,” The Lonely Island), Jason Schwartzman (“Moonrise Kingdom,” “The Darjeeling Limited”), Sarah Silverman (“Wreck-It-Ralph,” “The Sarah Silverman Program”), Cobie Smulders (“The Avengers,” “How I Met Your Mother”) and Casey Wilson (“Happy Endings”).

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

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.

It’s the final countdown to Christmas and thanks to IFC’s movie marathon all Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, you can revel in classic ’80s films AND find inspiration for your last-minute gifts. Here are our recommendations, if you need a head start:

Musical Instrument

Great analog entertainment substitute when you refuse to give your kid the Nintendo Switch they’ve been drooling over.

Breakfast In Bed

Any significant other or child would appreciate these Uncle Buck-approved flapjacks. Just make sure you’re not stuck on clean up duty.

Cocktail Supplies

You’ll need them to get through the holidays.

Dance Lessons

So you can learn to shake-shake-shake (unless you know ghosts willing to lend a hand).

Comfy Clothes

With all the holiday meals, there may be some…embigenning.
