Today we’re pleased to welcome back Scott Aukerman (AKA The Choctaw AKA Hot Saucerman) of the Comedy Bang! Bang! TV show and podcast. He was here a year ago when the TV show was just getting started. Now both he and his awesome show are back. The second season of Comedy Bang! Bang! airs Friday nights on IFC at 10:00 / 9:00 Central.
Aside from the TV show, you may also enjoy Aukerman’s Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast on the Earwolf podcast network, which he co-founded. If you’ve never heard the podcast, you are streets behind. (If you’re looking for a place to start, recent Episode 229 was especially fantastic.) Aukerman was also a writer on Mr. Show with Bob and David and is the director/producer of the hilarious Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis. In other words, he’s been involved in roughly half of the stuff we love.
Today’s discussion is scheduled to begin at 2pm EST and will go for about an hour. Please begin your questions with “@Scott” to keep things organized. If you wrote your question on a Fruit Roll-Up™ and then accidentally ate it, that is a classic UPROXX open thread blunder — we’ll have to deduct points for that. You should have asked those questions here. We’re opening the floor to questions now, so feel free to get them in early. Click on “See All Responses” or Aukerman’s name in the right side module to easily access all of his answers.
