Lizzy Caplan and Scott Aukerman discuss if men can be funny
American Documentary (working title) (6×30; premieres in 2015)
American Documentary is a curated series of half-hour documentaries and biopics, each about a completely fictitious subject. Featuring a repertory-like ensemble cast, the episodes will explore important political figures, influential artists, titans of industry, and iconic cultural movements, all utterly fictional. Produced by Lorne Michaels’ Broadway Video Television and directed by SNL’s Rhys Thomas, American Documentary will be shot on location in the traditional documentary style.
IFC has ordered six half-hour episodes to premiere in 2015. Seth Meyers will executive produce the series along with Fred Armisen and Bill Hader, who will have recurring roles. Production is scheduled to begin later this year.
CollegeHumor Comedy Music Awards (1×90; premieres in 2015)
When comedy and music collide, the results are explosive. IFC and CollegeHumor are coming together to honor the best of the comedy music genre with the first-ever Comedy Music Awards. A parody of traditional awards shows, this on-air and online concert will feature top musical comedy talent and performances set against the backdrop of a fake, overly self-important awards show. Complementary pieces include a new comedy music website, original comedy music videos and interactive digital features that will engage the audience.
Comedy Bang! Bang! Season 4 (40×30; premieres in 2015)
IFC has also ordered an expanded fourth season of Comedy Bang! Bang! hosted by Scott Aukerman, with 40 all-new half-hour episodes. This is the second time IFC has doubled its episode order for the series, which aired 10 episodes in season one and grew to 20 episodes in seasons two and three. The show continues to be a favorite among IFC’s viewers and advertising partners with brands such as Volkswagen and Cheez-It appearing through customized storyline integrations.
New Single: Red Hot Chili Peppers - “Abracadabralifornia” | RHCP2014
Just excellent work.
You go on WTF, and the host is like ‘Why should I care about you?’ Then you go on The Nerdist, the host is like ‘I care about you too much.’ Then you come here, and the host isn’t aware of what’s happening at all, or who the person is, and all he wants to do is wait for you to say the words ‘my wife.’
Consider this my full-fledged post-CBB celebratory freak-out post. (I hope this doesn’t come off as rude or anything… I’ve been keeping it secret since May and I finally have time to write something.)
ICYMI: a piece of my fan art (originally made for tumblr) was turned in to a real prop used on this past Friday’s Comedy Bang Bang! The production company sent me the book cover signed by Andy Daly. It was touched by the sweet mitts of both Andy and Scott Aukerman, and it was mere feet away from Rainn Wilson. Instant prized possession.
I have supplied a full photo of the back cover (I think someone wanted to see it?). It uses silly gibberish words.
I shall consider this my television debut. If anyone involved with the show ever sees this (hi Caroline!), thank you very very very much! It’s honestly the coolest thing to ever happen to me.
VIVA FAN ART. VIVA COMEDY BANG BANG.
So awesome. TL;DR - A piece of Comedy Bang Bang fan art (based on the podcast) became a real prop on the TV show.
The series will get another 20-episode run in 2014. (Via the CBB podcast and NYCC panel.)
Meet the Comedy Bang! Bang! Crew!
Just a bunch of normal union crew member types.
