When Comedy Bang! Bang! made the big leap from podcast to television show years ago, I would have wagered that few people would have wagered that CBB would get a 4th season with a gigantic episode order of 40, surpassing the number of episodes for most network sitcoms. Even for how great and popular a podcast as it is, the transition from audio-only to a full scale TV show for broadcast is still largely being figured out by TV networks.
Yet, we all should have made that wager, as that is exactly the case and Comedy Bang! Bang! on IFC with Scott Aukerman and Reggie Watts will only just be getting to the premiere of season 3 next month, specifically Thursday, May 8th at 10:30/9:30c.
The 20 slated episodes will run in two parts during this Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter and, of course, has a great, big ol’ list of guest stars, comedians, athletes like skateboarding legend Tony Hawk, actors/actresses like Mary Elizabeth Ellis from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and musicians like Jenny Lewis, as well as whatever characters the likes of Paul F. Tompkins, James Adomian, and Kate McKinnon might very well play. The A.V. Club debuted the list today as an exclusive.
Check out the whole guest list, as of right now anyways, below:
Paul F. Tompkins
Weird Al Yankovic
