IFC just releases some footage from the upcoming Comedy Bang! Bang! TV show based on the podcast of the same name hosted by Scott Aukerman. As we mentioned before, the show premieres this June and is a mix of improv, pre-recorded bits, and general Reggie Watts awesomeness.
Each of the ten episodes features sit-downs with some of the biggest names in comedy, taking them beyond Aukerman’s couch and engaging them with the off-beat world of the series. With the help of bandleader and one-man musical mastermind Reggie Watts (Conan), Comedy Bang! Bang! reinvents the celebrity interview with unfiltered and improvisational lines of questioning, punctuated by banter and beats. Also packed with sketches, character cameos, filmic shorts and games, Comedy Bang! Bang! turns the traditional talk show on its head, delivering thirty minutes of absurd fun. [IFC]
