It’s no secret we’re huge fans of Comedy Bang! Bang! here at The Big Wakeup Call, as evidenced by Scott Aukerman making his 5th appearance on our program. We chatted with Scott about what we’ll see on tomorrow night’s season 4 finale with Josh Groban (11/10c on IFC), last week’s surprise return of original bandleader Reggie Watts, and whether we may see a Comedy Bang! Bang! soundtrack album.Follow @bigwakeupcall
Of all of our favorite guests on the show, Scott Aukerman might just be our favoritest. Scott called in to talk about the return of Comedy Bang! Bang! tonight on IFC at 10:30/9:30Central. It’s a new episode, new bandleader, and presumably new jokes. We also discussed whether or not the death of Michael Cera in season one is canonical (and how that might impact my Comedy Bang! Bang! fan fiction), why they didn’t do any practice shows or a week-long residency in the Catskills to break in the new bandleader, and how catchphrases are born.
Tune in at exactly 9:29:59 Central for an all new Comedy Bang! Bang! tonight on IFC.
It’s been a while since we talked to Scott Aukerman, so we were glad to have him call in and talk about new episodes of Comedy Bang! Bang! After an initial bout of confusion over the air time of the show (one of these days we’ll end this “Central Time” nonsense once and for all), we had a great chat about morning zoos (vs. actual zoos), the perception of the show being for hipsters & stoners, and how this fake talk show has more genuine moments than most actual talk shows.
New episodes of Comedy Bang! Bang! starring Stock Photoman are on IFC at 11/10 Central.
