Do you happen to be like me? Depressed because Parks and Recreation just wrapped for the season and you now have limited resources to worship your favorite funny woman Amy Poehler? If so, you’re in luck! I watched an awesome clip featuring this goddess of comedy on a new show coming to IFC called Comedy Bang! Bang! (The crying over my plate of JJ’s waffles has now ceased)
This show is not your average talk show. Comedy Bang! Bang! is a late night show parody featuring Scott Aukerman ( co-creater/producer/director of Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis) as host. Scott Aukerman is backed by the one-manned bandleader Reggie Watts, who provides beats and some banter throughout the show. The half-hour show features multiple character cameos, sketches, games and hilarious short films.
This sneak peak of the show below features Amy Poehler, who is not wearing a wig in this episode (or so she insists), dropping by talk show. Scott discuses with Poehler on how she has not been doing well lately, due to her “many, many mental problems” and a habit of borrowing without permission (which, she also insists is NOT stealing). Also, watch to find out how mad Amy is at Mad Magazine, for their latest poke at Parks and Recreation. You should definitely be excited about this new show because I know I am… and I’m a pretty cool and hip person, so you should wanna follow suit.
Watch the clip below and let me know if you’re as excited as I am!
