IFC Teases Scott Aukerman's Comedy Bang! Bang! With A Ten-Minute Sneak Peek
Hosted by creator Scott Aukerman, and featuring band leader Reggie Watts, Comedy Bang! Bang! is based off Aukerman's successful podcast of the same name and is coming to IFC this summer. The brief teases for the show that IFC have released are totally bizarre and certainly hint at the kind of comedy one can expect from the new series. However, IFC has also released this 'sneak peek' which at almost ten minutes definitely offers a much better sample of what to expect. Take a look.

Comedy Bang! Bang! is a 'variety show' hosted by Scott Aukerman which will feature celebrity guests, humorous sketches and animation. Pivotal in the development of Zach Galifianakis' Between Two Ferns, this time Aukerman is put in front of the camera and it looks, uh, truly bizarre. And, more importantly, really funny.

The Increasingly Poor Decisions Of Todd Margaret DVD Review
The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret is a pretty fantastic British-American sitcom, written by David Cross and Shaun Pye for IFC, taking many cues from its overseas influences. Todd is presented with an opportunity that eventually becomes an interwoven string of ludicrous fables and raucous misinterpretations, usually ending with someone being completely alienated. It’s like Curb Your Enthusiasm, if Larry David was a naïve imbecile instead of stubbornly opinionated.
