Full disclosure: As I have stated a number of times, I am a fan of the Comedy Bang Bang podcast, and I am very much looking forward to the Comedy Bang Bang television show that is coming to IFC next month. (We’ve posted a few preview clips here already, most notably Jon Hamm rapping about “Taxi.”) With that in mind, there are two important issues I would like to bring to your attention.
- The guests on this week’s episode of the podcast were Alison Brie, Jason Mantzoukas (Rafi from “The League”), and Bob Odenkirk, who appeared in character as Saul Goodman from “Breaking Bad” and gave out free legal advice. Considering those are three people who play a big part in three of our favorite shows around here, I figured I should bring that to all y’all’s attention. Oh, and just a heads up, the conversation gets a little unsafe for work. I mean, unless you work somewhere where “Community’s” Annie Edison engaging in a lively, humorous discussion about molest-y dreams and fingering and such is kosher. I probably should have led with that.
- The big, honking, full-length trailer for the TV show was released by IFC yesterday, and I have posted it below. It features a who’s who of the comedy world — Andy Samberg, Patton Oswalt, Amy Poehler, Adam Scott, Will Arnett, Zach Galifianakis, Paul F. Tompkins, Will Forte, Chris Parnell, etc. — lending their skills to some fun, weird-ass looking sketches. And as someone who supports allowing creative, talented people to do all the fun, weird-ass things their little hearts desire, this is the type of thing I can get behind.
