6 Videos to Get You Pumped for Kid Cudi’s Comedy Bang! Bang! Debut Tonight

Today’s the big day: Arbor Day in Cambodia. Also, Kid Cudi makes his debut tonight on Comedy Bang! Bang! at 10:30P. Our good friend Reggie Watts brought a lot to the table and we all miss him, but we think Kid Cudi is ready — even though his hair isn’t nearly as voluminous as Reggie’s.

We don’t just go around making baseless claims, so here are a few videos that have convinced us Kid Cudi can handle the pressures of his new gig, and that he’s the Renaissance man Scott Aukerman needs in his life:

Cudi is no stranger to the Comedy Bang! Bang! set since he was a guest on Episode 7 of Season 4. And he knew how to make himself comfortable, so much so that he released three surprise albums during the interview and convinced Reggie he was prank-called by President Obama. Beyond the episode, Kid Cudi and Reggie also joined forces for a classic episode of Reggie Makes Music, which you can watch above.

Scott has no quarrel with gifts, which is fantastic because Kid Cudi has mastered the art of gift-giving, bringing special goodies for everybody on set in this clip from tonight’s episode.


Cudi has demonstrated skills in a TV comedy setting before, particularly when he starred in the short-lived HBO comedy-drama series How To Make It In America, where, among other things, he showed his entrepreneurial side by starting Canines & Cannabis, a dog walking/pot delivery business.


As Scott’s arsenal of fine sweaters show, style is a crucial element of the Comedy Bang! Bang! vibe. Well, Cudi was a guest on Conan in 2011, and he dropped an absolute fashion bomb on the program, walking out in a pair of exclusive Back to the Future Nike sneakers . Plus, he gave Conan a highly trendy leather jacket that he designed himself.


It’s hip to be funny all day every day, sure, but you have to be serious sometimes, which is no problem because Cudi can do and has done drama: He starred in “Maniac,” a short film directed by Shia LaBeouf in which he plays a serial killer who has no ruth. He’s ruthless, is what we’re saying.


Almost anything can happen on the Comedy Bang! Bang! set, so anybody who hopes to be on it for a long time better be able to think on their feet and be ready for uncooperative guests, alien invasions, or worse: a surprise visit from the network boss. Cudi has proven that he’s an adept improviser, like in this freestyle rap he did live for BBC a few years ago.

Yup, Kid Cudi’s going to be just fine. Watch his Comedy Bang! Bang! debut tonight at at 10:30P on IFC.

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.
