Comedy Bang Bang isn’t just a clever send-up of talk shows; it’s a space for Hollywood’s funniest people, free of stand-up and sitcom conventions, to indulge in their most surreal whims. The loose, conversational feel of both the podcast and the IFC show has resulted in a wonderfully bizarre universe of characters and inside jokes. Host Scott Aukerman deftly facilitates the organized chaos, bringing out the best in his collaborators and making each episode an unpredictable event in itself. Comedy Bang Bang is never afraid to play with audience expectations, and it only gets better when nothing about it seems to make sense.
