Comedy Bang! Bang! Season 2 Preview

Comedy Bang! Bang! is a new television series that's been renewed for a 20-episode second season starting this summer, and with it comes the mini-series Reggie Makes Music. The show airs weekly on IFC and is a spin-off based on the the very successful podcast Comedy Bang Bang. The podcast is hosted by Scott Aukerman and features guests and characters from comedians all with a joyous theme song by Reggie Watts. The show is a satire on traditional talk shows, with Aukerman as host and Watts as "band leader." It's a sketch comedy show with a ton of guests usually playing themselves or other characters. The show is known for it's deadpan, sarcastic humor and has featured a pretty long list of celebrity guests over season one including comedians like Nick Kroll, Zach Gilifianakis, Paul Rudd, Jack Black, and Jon Hamm. Other than the sketches, Scott Aukerman basically asks guests improvisation questions that always have nothing to do with what the conversation ends up being about. 

Season two has an even longer list. Seriously, they might actually have broken a record with the amount of guests coming on one show. Here's a full list:  Jessica Alba, Aziz Ansari, David Cross, Jim Gaffigan, Zach Galifianakis, Bill Hader, Pee-wee Herman, Gillian Jacobs, Rashida Jones, Anna Kendrick, Andy Richter, Zoe Saldana, Andy Samberg, Jason Schwartzman, Sarah Silverman, Cobie Smulders, and Casey Wilson. Additional guests include James Adomian, Matt Besser, Michael Ian Black, Selma Blair, Aidy Bryant, Andy Daly, Adam DeVine, Nat Faxon, Dave Foley, Will Forte, Tony Hale, Chris Hardwick, Rob Huebel, Nick Kroll, Phil LaMarr, Thomas Lennon, John Carroll Lynch, Jason Mantzoukas, Jack McBrayer, Tim Meadows, Christopher Meloni , Bobby Moynihan, Bob Odenkirk, Adam Pally, Jimmy Pardo, Jordan Peele, Jim Rash, Lance Reddick, Horatio Sanz, Kristen Schaal, Ben Schwartz, Adam Scott, Lynne Marie Stewart, Dave Thomas, Paul F. Tompkins, Joe Lo Truglio, Matt Walsh, Michaela Watkins, Zach Woods, "Weird Al" Yankovic, Cedric Yarbrough. 

Scott Aukerman stated in IFC's press release this morning, " “It’s amazing to have this caliber of talent on our couch again for the second season of Comedy Bang! Bang!" said Scott Aukerman. “I haven’t been this excited since I wrote my press release quote for season one.” He also said this about the upcoming season: 

“You can tune in to see Anna Kendrick get very close to drunk on the air,” Aukerman said. “You can tune in to see Zoe Saldana arrested by a police officer in the middle of an interview. You can tune in to see Casey Wilson embrace her passion for musical theater. You can tune in to see a big [Mr. Show] reunion of David Cross and Bob Odenkirk doing a sketch together. And you can tune into see Zack Galifianakis as a jolly fat man who also happens to be Santa Claus.”

Mr. Show reunion?! What? Season 2 begins July 12th and will be split up into two parts with ten episodes in each spot, the second beginning on October 18th. This hilarious first preview clip from this new segment of Reggie Makes Music came out this morning, staring Aziz Ansari and Reggie Watts singing about going on a sandwich date. Vulture has the exclusive skit that you can watch here (previous examples from Season 1 aren't embeddable, but you can check them out on IFC's YouTube page).
