We’re getting very excited for the return of Comedy Bang! Bang! to IFC in June. The fifth season of the comedy late night show brings with it a big change: Weird Al Yankovic is replacing Kid Cudi as the show’s bandleader and cohost. Weird Al must be almost as excited as we are, because he tweeted two new promos this afternoon.
In the promos, Al and host Scott Aukerman display their easy chemistry with each other and a similar sense of absurdist humor, so we know this is going to be a big hit. As much as we loved Reggie Watts and Kid Cudi, it seems like Weird Al will bring a new energy to the proceedings and we can’t wait to see what kind of antics he and Scott get up to.
