Scott Aukerman

Anything but an ordinary TV chat show, IFC's Comedy Bang! Bang! has built on the podcast success and eccentric questioning of its host, Scott Aukerman. He started CB!B! over a decade ago as a stage show, with most of L.A.'s alt comics dropping by; after various name changes, it then became a podcast with still more boldface names visiting; and now it's a comedy tour augmented by his regular TV guests, Paul F. Tompkins and James Adomian. (Sorry, but Reggie Watts won't be joining them; though half the show will be recorded for future podcast.) Aukerman favors a long, loose conversational style of comedy. Improv and absurd non-sequiturs gradually creep in, but never with a fanfare. (Kurt Braunohler, of IFC's improv comedy show Bunk, will open.) BRIAN MILLER
