A writer on the legendary Mr. Show, a producer on Between Two Ferns, and the creator of the Comedy Bang! Bang! podcast and now the IFC show of the same name — Auckerman’s sensibilities don’t necessarily glide toward the mainstream and it doesn’t really seem to be slowing him down. Auckerman sat down with a handful of reporters, including our Tiffany Brown during San Diego Comic Con to discuss his incredibly hectic schedule, his upcoming live tour, how Comedy Bang! Bang! came to be, the prospects for season 2, and Pee Wee Herman. Check out Part 1 and Part 2 of the interview below.
Comedy Bang! Bang! airs Friday nights at 10 on IFC. Auckerman is kicking off a US tour at the end of this month, for more information on tour dates and everything else involved with the show, check out the Comedy Bang! Bang! website.
