IFC has ordered a 20-episode fifth season of Comedy Bang! Bang!, hosted by comedian and podcaster Scott Aukerman, to air in 2016.
On the weekly half-hour show, comedy, TV, movies, music and sports stars join Aukerman for banter and over-the-top sketches. The current fourth season, airing Friday nights at 11 PM, has featured Ty Burrell, Mark Duplass, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Zach Galifianakis, former NFLer Eddie George, Simon Helberg, Maya Rudolph, Dax Shepard, Schoolboy Q, Jack Antonoff, Twin Shadow and Tears for Fears.
“Scott has created an absurd world that attracts the biggest names in pop culture,” said IFC president Jennifer Caserta. “They show up, do insane things and oftentimes come back for more. We have no idea how he does it, but we’re not about to start asking questions now.”
Comedy Bang! Bang! is produced for IFC by Abso Lutely Productions; Scott Aukerman and Dave Kneebone serve as executive producers. The complete first two seasons as well as the first half of season three are available for streaming on Netflix.
