Find Out What Scott Aukerman and Paul F Tompkins are Like in Private in This Reddit AMA


Posted by on

The new season of Comedy Bang! Bang! starts Friday at 11p, but you don’t have to wait until then to get your Scott Aukerman fix. Yesterday he did an AMA on Reddit and answered all your burning questions about Star Wars, U2, Reggie Watts, Paul F. Tompkins and even some questions about the show.

Here are a few of the highlights, but you should read the entire Reddit AMA, too.

Do you think every movie sequel should have the number of characters indicated in the title? Like should Shrek 2 have two Shreks in it?

This is a great rule!!! Seven wars in the stars!

Since the Star Wars films are set “a long time ago” (in a galaxy far far away), wouldn’t it be reasonable to assume that Chewbacca was now dead, regardless of the non-canonical nature of the novels?

Yes, but how long do Wookies live?

Now that Comedy Bang! Bang! is about to enter it’s fourth season, when can we expect the U Talkin’ U2 To Me? TV show?

Someone at HBO told me they were a UTU2TM fan, so I told Adam we should do a TV show there. He said it would be like “Tell Me You Love Me,” but with more f***ing.

Have you and PFT always been this funny when you’re together?! Or has it just been the years of practice? He’s the most frequent guest on the podcast, but your back and forth never fails to be fantastic even the hundredth time around. Together you could conquer the world.

I think we are “on” on the show. It can be exhausting to be like that 100 percent of the time. We usually take it down a notch or two in private.

Do you ever get offended when PFT’s characters tell you to shut up?

Haha, yes EVERY TIME!

What aspect of your current life would impress an 8-year-old Scott Aukerman the most?

Having sex with girls, I think?

How did you get connected with Reggie? I can’t imagine the show without him. He’s like… a fluffy angel. (But you’ll be ok)

Reggie and I hung out a bit at various comedy festivals. Then he did the podcast a few times, and did both theme songs. So when we were thinking of what to do, music-wise, for the show, he seemed a natural fit!

How do you think Mad Men will end?

Old don draper in 2015, looking at an iPhone, tipping his shades down – “I could get used to this.”

Read the entire Reddit AMA—it’s worth it!

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.

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.
