“‘Comedy Bang! Bang!’ has been an incredibly important show for IFC. Over five seasons and more than 100 episodes, Scott Aukerman has been a comedic force who has meant so much to us,” said IFC president Jennifer Caserta. “Comedy Bang! Bang! had a unique sensibility in the comedy space, and delivered an amazing array of A-list guest stars. Scott and his team worked with our advertising partners in ways that were as buzzy as the jokes. We are proud to celebrate ‘Comedy Bang! Bang!’ across this final 10-episode send-off and appreciate everything it has meant to IFC.”
