“They say the best things come in threes: celebrity deaths, Hobbit movies — and now, seasons of ‘Comedy Bang! Bang!'” said Aukerman.
With beats by Reggie Watts, Aukerman combines deadpan celebrity interviews with sometimes surreal comedy sketches. Season 2 featured 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.
The show is produced for IFC by Abso Lutely Productions. Aukerman and Dave Kneebone serve as executive producers.
