Comedy Bang! Bang! LIVE! is in support of Comedy Bang! Bang! which airs Friday nights at 10pm ET/PT on IFC. Cleverly riffing on the well-known format of the late night talk show and based on Scott Aukerman’s popular podcast of the same name, Comedy Bang! Bang! infuses celebrity appearances and comedy sketches with a tinge of the surreal, as if Fernwood Tonight had Hollywood’s A-list of the day and mixed in the dream sequences and talking inanimate objects of Pee-Wee’s Playhouse. In each episode, Aukerman engages his guests with unfiltered and improvisational lines of questioning, punctuated by banter and beats provided by musical cohort Reggie Watts (Conan), to reinvent the traditional celebrity interview. Packed with character cameos, filmic shorts, sketches, games, abrupt dream sequence detours and talking set pieces, Comedy Bang! Bang! delivers thirty minutes of absurd laugh-loaded fun featuring some of the biggest names in comedy.

Comedy Bang! Bang! tour
This week in press releases brings us Scott Aukerman's latest inspiration, Comedy Bang! Bang!, coming soon to a venue near you (if you're in one of the cities below). Canadian fans of this hugely popular podcast (and now TV series) will note the last date on the tour: Aug. 10. Scott and his gang of merry mirth-makers will be performing at the Biltmore Cabaret right here in sunny Vancouver, thanks to the efforts of Will Davis and the local comedy festival. The poster doesn't reflect it, but it says so right here on the press release so it must be true.
