IFC’s new sketch comedy series The Birthday Boys, which showcases the silly-meets-smart humor from the comedy troupe of the same name, premieres Friday, October 18 at 10:30 EST.
Executive producers Bob Odenkirk and Ben Stiller bring viewers the genius of the Los Angeles comedy team that made a name for themselves at UCB LA and the Just For Laughs Festival. Along with honorary eighth member Odenkirk, The Birthday Boys ensemble includes Jefferson Dutton, Dave Ferguson, Mike Hanford, Tim Kalpakis, Matt Kowalick, Mike Mitchell and Chris VanArtsdalen.
“The Birthday Boys are funny fellows,” said Bob Odenkirk in a statement. “I intend to learn all their names by the end of the first season!”
