Comedy Bang Bang is a long-standing American family tradition. I grew up watching it on the UHF antenna setting on the family TV on Saturday mornings while eating cereal. My parents grew up listening to it on the AM radio. My grandparents listened to it over the telegraph wire when they were kids. We all love it!

If you're a comedy geek, you already love this program and everyone involved. If you're a civilian, you just might be in for a mind altering, door-opening experience,

If you just don't get it? Go watch Jeff Dunham.

I bought this episode after watching it on cable because of Paul F. Tomplins' appearance as "Andrew Llyod Webber." It's one of the funniest things I've ever seen, and I can't fully explain why, because I'm willing to bet that 90% of the joke is in Tompkins' own head. He plays "Webber" like a clueless, arrogant, self-important boob (at one point series host Scott Aukerman addresses him as "Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber," to which Tompkins bellows in reply "LORD!," and Aukerman sheepishly stands corrected).

The show has a HEAVY improv feel. I have no idea how much of it is actually scripted. I'm guessing they set up a framework and fly by the seat of their pants. But this is funny, funny stuff. If you like your humor obvious and "ha-ha funny," there's a good chance you will HATE this show. Personally, I like nuanced humor in which the whole joke isn't revealed and you feel like you're allowed to sit in and be part of the experience. I won't spoil the whole "Webber" segment for you, but at one point, when it's clear that things aren't going his way, Tompkins gets this look of defeat mixed with a sly grin and stares off camera, moaning "What will become of Andrew Lloyd Webber?" Aukerman replies "What will happen to him, indeed? We'll find out when we come back" and cuts to a break.

It's old-style anarchy humor in the form of Bob and Ray and Firesign Theater. Sometimes it hits, sometimes it misses, and when they include something along the lines of Tompkins' "Webber" appearance, it becomes AMAZING.

The show also has a free audio podcast (as does Tompkins), but you REALLY need the visuals. If anything I've written here sounds appealing, the cost of this episode is minor compared to the laughs...and you may very well get hooked, as I did. Enjoy!

The most unique comedy I've seen in years with big name / funny stars. Fast paced shows that each very unique. Love Hot Saucerman and Reggie Watts!

Comedy fans have more options than ever to see and hear the funniest folks do their thing, thanks to Twitter, streaming services, and podcasts. Since 2009, Mr. Show writer and improv comedian Scott Aukerman has given some of the biggest names a place to chat in and out of character on his podcast Comedy Bang! Bang! (formerly Comedy Death Ray). In 2012, Aukerman was given the opportunity by IFC to bring Comedy Bang! Bang! to TV. A year and a half later, the show's 10-episode first season arrives on DVD in a 2-disc set perfect for fans and newcomers alike.

Disc One
• "Zach Galifianakis Wears A Blue Jacket & Red Socks"
• "Amy Poehler Wears A Black Jacket & Grey Pants"
• "Jon Hamm Wears A Light Blue Shirt & Silver Watch"
• "Michael Cera Wears A Blue Denim Shirt & Red Pants"
• "Seth Rogen Wears A Plaid Shirt & Brown Pants"
• "Paul Rudd Wears A Red Lumberjack Flannel Shirt"
• "Ed Helms Wears A Grey Shirt & Brown Boots"

Disc Two
• "Elizabeth Banks Wears A Red Dress"
• "Adam Scott Wears A Red Oxford Shirt & Jeans"
• "’Weird Al' Yankovic Wears A Hawaiian Shirt"

Translating a freeform audio program to a 22-minute TV show isn't easy, but Aukerman and his writers found a way to twist the format into something new. Where the podcast is mostly Aukerman, Comedy Bang! Bang! takes a cue from late night TV with the addition of comedian-musician Reggie Watts as one man house band and sidekick. The chair and couch setup may look familiar, but Bang! Bang! is its own beast—somewhere between a talk show, sketch series, and performance art.

I think my brain melted. Unrelated. Great show. I really like it when they do the comedy to make to do for.

This is a great translation of a fantastic podcast to the small screen. The friendly, easy-going banter between Scott and Reggie brings me back to the talk shows of yesteryear. My one beef is that they don't have a plugs segment. This is always the most memorable section of the podcast and, in my opinion, not including it in the show is a huge oversight.

I've booked comedy for over twenty-five years and I'm a bit of a comedy snob. If there's anything funnier than COMEDY BANG BANG is on a roll I don't know what it is!
