IT’S TIME FOR THE BIG BANG!
ANCHOR BAY FILMS RELEASES
IFC’S “COMEDY BANG! BANG!”
ON DVD JANUARY 21, 2014
All 10 Episodes Plus Bonus Features!
Beverly Hills, CA – Anchor Bay Films releases the complete first season of one of the funniest series on TV, IFC’s “Comedy Bang! Bang!” on DVD January 21st. The two-disc set contains all 10 episodes of IFC’s hilarious series that turns the predictable chat show upside down and inside out. With an oddball mix of unique characters, sketches and nonstop absurdity with the biggest names in Hollywood, “CBB” is the most original program out there. The release also features cool new bonus materials including audio commentaries, deleted scenes and interview questions. The SRP is $29.98.
Originating from a popular podcast of the same name, “Comedy Bang! Bang!” breaks the traditional late night talk show format by infusing celebrity appearances and comedy sketches with a tinge of the surreal. Host and creator Scott Aukerman (co-creator/director/producer, “Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis;” writer/performer, “Mr. Show”) engages his guests with unfiltered and improvisational lines of questioning, punctuated by banter and beats provided by musical cohort Reggie Watts ("Conan," Jash.com) to reinvent the traditional celebrity interview. Improv and scripted insanity mixed with character cameos, filmed shorts, sketches, games and abrupt dream sequences – all making for the wildest and weirdest thirty minutes you’ve ever spent in the privacy of your own home!
Bonus Features Include:
[*]Deleted Interview Questions
[*]Insult Supercut From "The Assassin"
[*]Ultimate Teaser Trailer
[*]Alternate Title Sequence
[*]Supercut Of Reggie Watt's Commercial Intros/Outros
[*]Director Ben Berman's Test Shoots For Special Effects

Bang!”, Aukerman and Watts are joined by Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover), Amy Poehler (“Parks and Recreation”), Jon Hamm (“Mad Men”), Michael Cera (“Arrested Development”), Seth Rogen (This is the End), Paul Rudd (This is 40), Ed Helms (“The Office”), Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games), Andy Samberg (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine”), Aziz Ansari (“Parks and Recreation”), Jack Black and Kyle Gass of Tenacious D and many more!
