Stars: Scott Aukerman, Reggie Watts, Kid Cudi
Based on the popular podcast of the same name, Comedy Bang! Bang! finds comedian and podcast host Scott Aukerman bringing his singular brand of comedy to television. Essentially a parody of late night talk shows, Aukerman brings a new guest on the show every episode and then things typically devolve in surreal and cartoonish ways, with Aukerman responding to everything in a deadpan manner and musical host Reggie Watts (with Kid Cudi and “Weird Al” Yankovic taking over after Watts left) scoring the chaos. Over its five season run, Comedy Bang! Bang! had an astounding variety of guests, from those more inclined to comedy (Andy Samberg, Zach Galifianakis, Amy Poehler) to those less so, but still strangely hilarious when on the show (Tony Hawk, Jessica Alba, Schoolboy Q). Comedy Bang! Bang! is an underrated comedy classic that deserves more love.
