IFC RENEWS SCOTT AUKERMAN'S "COMEDY BANG! BANG!" FOR A SECOND SEASON

NEW YORK, NY -February 8, 2013 - IFC announced today that the comedy network has ordered a second season of its original series, Comedy Bang! Bang!, hosted by comedian/writer and podcast host Scott Aukerman (co-creator/director/producer, Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis; writer/performer, Mr. Show). IFC has ordered 20 episodes, double the first season's order, to air in ten episode arcs on IFC. The first ten episodes will debut in third quarter 2013 with the remaining ten slated to air in fourth quarter. Production is currently underway in Los Angeles.

Comedy Bang! Bang! riffs on the late night talk show format, infusing celebrity appearances and comedy sketches with a tinge of the surreal. Aukerman engages his guests with unfiltered and improvisational lines of questioning, punctuated by banter and beats provided by musical cohort Reggie Watts (Conan), to reinvent the traditional celebrity interview. Season one featured a rotating line-up of well-known comedians and actors, including Amy Poehler and Zach Galifianakis along with others which can be seen at www.ifc.com/comedy-bang-bang.

"Comedy Bang! Bang! perfectly embodies the type of sharp, smart comedy space IFC inhabits," said Debbie DeMontreux, IFC's SVP of original programming. "Scott and Reggie are comedic geniuses and we couldn't be happier that their television home is on IFC. The A-list roster of guest stars the show brought to IFC in season one, coupled with the popularity of the series amongst comedy fans makes it a great addition to our 'slightly off' line-up."

Comedy Bang! Bang! is produced for IFC by Abso Lutely Productions; Aukerman and Dave Kneebone serve as executive producers.
