A brand new season of Comedy Bang! Bang! kicks off this Thursday at 10:30p with a brand-new co-host (hi, Kid Cudi!) sitting behind a brand-new desk and 100% more llamas. If you fear change, don’t worry, the same old beloved host Scott Aukerman a.k.a. Hot Saucerman a.k.a. Scoot Mockerman a.k.a. Bot Rockerman is still running the show.

Scott headed to Reddit today for an Ask Me Anything session about the new season of the show, his podcast empire, and his feelings about long-running Comedy Bang! Bang! jokes. Here are some of the highlights, but the whole AMA is worth a read. Head over to Reddit to check it out.

Have you ever had a particular guest on the pod/show that was very difficult to get in contact with? Was it worth the effort?

I tried for years to get Paul Reubens on, and it paid off in spades!

Heynong Man! If your career were to end today (which we all hope it won’t, of course), what would you consider to be the highlight(s) of your career?

Mr Show / Comedy Bang Bang / Between Two Ferns / meeting Pee-wee

Reggie’s last episode was fantastic, and I’m really looking forward to seeing how Kid Cudi turns out on CBB TV.

I think Cudi’s first episode is going to thrill people – i can’t wait for people to see it.

Have any of the guests ever come in with their own bits and you guys riff from that or do you usually have to write for most of the show?

Sometimes people will come in with a bit – Michael Cera came in with the Angry Birds bit from Season one. And Mark Duplass came in with the gun bit from this season. And Joseph Gordon-Levitt came up with the idea of the hitRECord bit from his episode. But most of the “celebrity” guests come on and just do whatever we ask of them.

How was your recent trip to France with your ex girlfriend?

You HAVE to go… every day they have this bicycle race that the entire country watches… it’s so different from the USA

Which CBB joke(s) do you wish people would stop saying to you?

none – i wish the people who get mad at the people who say the jokes would chill!

How long will you allow the closing up the plug bag theme to get?

i imagine i will get sick of it at some point and reset… but not yet!

What are your plans to ensure that “all joking a salad” is not relegated to the dust bin of history?

Look for t-shirts for both this Monday!

Comedy Bang! Bang! returns to IFC on Thursday, July 9th at 10:30p

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.

Cocktail Supplies

You’ll need them to get through the holidays.
