It’s almost time to get weird again: IFC announced today that Comedy Bang! Bang! will return for a fifth season on June 3 with an ecclectic mix of celebrity guests, and, yes, new co-host/bandleader Weird Al Yankovic.
The trippy late-night talk show, which is hosted by Scott Aukerman, will be within one degree of Kevin Bacon. In Theory, it also sounds like Kaley Cuoco will make for a good guest. And Joe Jonas will be sending an “S.O.S.” to the show. You know what? This is going to take too long. There are a lot of guest-stars to list here, so we better get to it: Aubrey Plaza, the Lonely Island trio of Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone, Tony Hale, Nathan Fielder, Ben Folds, Kristen Schaal, T-Pain, and Tegan and Sara.
Would you like the list to go on? You got it: Fred Willard, Bobby Moynihan, Ben Schwartz, Haley Joel Osment, Dave Foley, Mike O’Brien, Horatio Sanz, Nate Corddry, Kate Berlant, Matt Besser, Neil Campbell, Lauren Lapkus, Paul Rust, McG, Laraine Newman, Jon Polito, Emily Bett Rickards, Rosa Salazar, Abigail Spencer, and Steve-O.
Yankovic is replacing Reggie Watts, who now can be seen on The Late Late Show with James Corden. The 20-episode fifth season will be split into two parts. A pair of back-to-back episodes will air at 11 p.m. from June 3 to July 1; the second half of the season will debut in the fall.
