ABC Family's 2013 Countdown to 25 Days of Christmas Schedule; Comedy Bang! Bang! Gets 3rd Season on IFC
Scott Aukerman's Comedy Bang! Bang! is coming back with a bang to IFC. The fan favorite comedy series was renewed for a third season with 20 half-hour episodes, scheduled to air in two ten episode installments, in 2014. With ringleader and comedian Aukerman (co-creator/director/producer, Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis; writer/performer, Mr. Show), the show has flipped the script on the late night talk show format and propelled it into a far off galaxy. Infusing untraditional celebrity interviews and comedy sketches with a tinge of the surreal, Scott engages his guests with unfiltered, deadpan lines of questioning, accented by banter and beats provided by Reggie Watts (Conan, Jash). Each celebrity appearance is blended with mind-bending filmed shorts, random character cameos and over-the-top spoofs. Season two featured an impressive line-up of well-known comedians and actors, including Jessica Alba, Aziz Ansari, David Cross, Jim Gaffigan, Zach Galifianakis, Bill Hader, Pee-wee Herman, Gillian Jacobs, Rashida Jones, Anna Kendrick, Andy Richter, Zoe Saldana, Andy Samberg, Jason Schwartzman, Sarah Silverman, Cobie Smulders and Casey Wilson along with many more that can be seen at www.ifc.com/comedy-bang-bang.
