Watch All of Scott Aukerman's 'Hot Saucerman' Intros from 'Comedy Bang Bang

Comedy Bang Bang host Scott Aukerman opens each episode of the show with a silly fake name that sounds like his name, and IFC made a supercut of every single one of them. Obviously, the best one is "Flop Chonkenton," and that's not open for debate so please don't sound off in the comments.

Scott Aukerman Made a Great List of His Favorite Comedies

The AV Club asked Comedy Bang Bang's Scott Aukerman to create his own 24-hour comedy marathon made up of his favorite movies and shows, and the piece is worth checking out for the basic list itself and to hear Aukerman talk at length about the comedies that inspired him. From standard fare like Caddyshack and The Naked Gun to cult hits like MacGruber and Dave Foley's The Wrong Guy, it's a solid roster of movies that every comedy fan should see.

Scott Aukerman Should Be on Fox News Every Day

Most episodes of Scott Aukerman's IFC series Comedy Bang Bang are chock-full of big-time comedy types, but tonight's episode (airing at 10pm) is an especially exciting one for comedy nerds.

'Comedy Bang! Bang!' Finished? No. Actually Starting Season 2

Bless the ones with the death wishes, the ones that don't bother to try to make the familiar and well-established beats as funny or funnier than their predecessors or contemporaries because they are too busy traversing hidden paths to jokes. Chris Onstad's Achewood was/is the online comic that comes to mind with that mentality and sensibility of comedy writing – only attainable through years of effort and a natural and willingly obtuse way of thinking – and Achewood is the online comic that comes to mind when we talk about the greats of that medium. Monty Python's Flying Circus, The State, and Mr. Show are sketch comedies that will [...]

The 11 Best 'Comedy Bang! Bang!' Characters and Impersonations

And so here we are, the day of the second season premiere of Comedy Bang! Bang!, the television show based on the funny podcast and former live showcase of the same name. Scott Aukerman and company have managed to take the successful, idiosyncratic style of humor from one medium to another, so much so that IFC is trusting them to put twenty new episodes on the air this season, twice as many as last year. But while some of the characters and impersonations have found their way to the small screen, the element of letting the listener's imagination run wild along with the routines, not to mention the much [...]

Talking to Scott Aukerman and Reggie Watts About 'Comedy Bang Bang' Season 2

One of the funniest new TV shows of last year, Comedy Bang Bang is returning for a second season this Friday on IFC. Even better, it's a super-sized 20-episode season that looks pretty action-packed based on the trailer (embedded below) and the couple of episodes I've gotten to see ahead of time. I had the chance to visit the Comedy Bang Bang set a few months ago while the gang was filming the opening scene of the new season, and I got to sit down with host Scott Aukerman and his faithful bandleader Reggie Watts during a lunch break to talk about what we can expect from Comedy Bang [...]
