“I Weigh Good, Bro” and Other Highlights of Scott Aukerman’s Reddit AMA

Posted by on

Scott Aukerman took over Reddit yesterday for a good old fashioned round of Would You Rather Ask Me Anything. The citizens of Reddit asked him everything about Comedy Bang! Bang! from dream guests to whether certain podcast regulars will ever make their way to the TV show and, of course, a few rounds of Would You Rather. And you know that any AMA session that starts like this:

Reddit: How you weigh?

Scott Aukerman: I weigh good, bro.

Is definitely going to be a winner.

Here are some of the other highlights, but it’s definitely worth taking a moment to read the whole thing here:

My girlfriend won’t stop talking during the “Would You Rather” theme music, what do I do?

I’m not going to say you should break up with her, but I don’t think she’s really marriage material.

If Reggie Watts were to pull a power play and take over your role as host on Comedy Bang Bang, how do you think he would betray you?

With a kiss, like Judas!

What’s the Comedy Bang Bang weather report for today?

Lil gloomy!

Were you happy with how the Obama Between Two Ferns episode turned out? Do you feel any of the criticism was warranted?

I was happy with it, and I never care about criticism as long as I’m happy with something! It’s when you’re not happy with something that it stings a little.

Hi Scott! I truly admire all the work you’ve done with the Earwolf Podcast Network. In your wildest dreams, who do you most want to host their own podcast on the Earwolf Podcast Network?

Thanks! Steve Martin, Chris Rock, David Letterman!

Is there a joke you thought of a kid that you still think is funny?

When i was in the doctor’s office as a kid, maybe ten years old, he had paintings of zebras up all over the place. One was getting on a boat. To make my mother laugh, I started coming up with riddles based on zebras. I eventually started doing jokes like “Why did the zebra get onto the boat? Because he wanted to!” That’s when I discovered anti-comedy.

Will Tom Leykis or Jessie Ventura make a future appearance on your television program?

One of these two is on this season.

Will Wompler ever be on the TV show, or are the prosthetics too onerous?

Jess and I have been trying to figure it out.. i think it might be too difficult to do a visual representation of Wompler. In a case like that, I’ll usually try to figure out something else for that performer to do (like Tom Lennon – we briefly did Lil Gary, but I think he had more fun as the Phantom). We do the Calvins Twins this year, and our one regret is that we couldn’t make them four-foot-tall jockeys.

Maybe it’s just me, but for me, Lauren Lapkus seems to be getting funnier every appearance. Will we be seeing Traci Rearden this season?

We won’t be seeing Traci, since she’s a 17 year old girl (and Lauren is not!). But LL will be on CBB TV playing someone different she’s created.

How do you feel doing a podcast with a COWARD who doesn’t have the balls to ask the subject of the podcast onto the show despite running into him every other day?

It’s ridiculous – how many times does he have to have the opportunity to talk to Bonos before he talks to Bonos?

t-shirts or college girls??? You can only pick one

I CAN’T, YOU SONOFABITCH!!

Final Countdown

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

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.

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.



Get even more great inspiration all Christmas Eve and Day on IFC, and remember…
