The tour is in support of the remaining ten episodes of Comedy Bang! Bang!'s second season which returns from hiatus in October and the series premiere of The Birthday Boys that same month.

The second season of Comedy Bang! Bang! kicked off in July with 20 all-new episodes and an exciting line-up of famous faces. The first ten episodes are airing through September 13, followed by a short hiatus before picking back up for ten more episodes on October 18. Infusing untraditional celebrity interviews and comedy sketches with a tinge of the surreal, host Scott Aukerman engages his guests with unfiltered, deadpan lines of questioning, accented by banter and beats provided by musical cohort Reggie Watts. Each celebrity appearance is blended with mind-bending filmed shorts, random character cameos and over-the-top spoofs. Joining Scott and Reggie this season are Jessica Alba, Zach Galifianakis, Pee-wee Herman, Jason Schwartzman and many more.

IFC's new original sketch comedy series The Birthday Boys showcases the humor from the popular comedy troupe of the same name. Executive producers Bob Odenkirk and Ben Stiller bring viewers the genius of the comedy team that made a name for themselves at UCB LA and the Just For Laughs Festival. With a nod to absurd yet intelligent legacy sketch shows Monty Python, Mr. Show and Kids in the Hall, the series appropriates familiar scenarios and classic TV, film and sketch archetypes with a fresh take. Drawing from the unique collaboration between Odenkirk and The Birthday Boys as writers, directors and performers, The Birthday Boys features both stand-alone and multi-act sketches that poke fun at real-life moments and cultural touchstones.
