As you may have noted, Scott Aukerman and his Comedy Bang! Bang! podcast (and live shows at UCB) are among the favorites around here. Chris, Jonah, and Matt have been among the many guests, real and fake (“Cake Boss!“), featured on the show. So we’re happy to hear that there’s going to be a Comedy Bang Bang TV series coming to IFC in June.
The TV edition is described by the network press release as “a sketch variety show featuring celebrity guests, comedy sketches, and animation,” and it will be hosted, naturally, by Scott with Reggie Watts providing the music, and it doesn’t get much better than that. They’ve ordered 10 half-hour episodes, along with a game show parody called Bunk, and the two join Portlandia and the final season of The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret on IFC, which is building quite a comedy presence. (You may have already seen Comedy Bang Bang interstitials on the network on Monday and Tuesday nights)
Congratulations to Scott, Reggie, and everyone over there. The podcast invasion of television continues….
