Fans of comedian Scott Aukerman have until this point had more of a chance to get familiar with his voice than with his screen presence. A writer for "Mr. Show" and the creator of viral web phenom "Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis," Aukerman's best known as the host of the hugely popular radio show-turned-podcast "Comedy Bang! Bang!," in which he interviews celebrity guests real and impersonated and involves them in improv game segments. But tonight, fans will finely get a good look at the guy. The new TV incarnation of "Comedy Bang! Bang!" premieres on IFC Friday, June 8, at 10 pm, as an absurdist talk show during which Aukerman and his bandleader Reggie Watts banter between guest interviews (Galifianakis and Amy Poehler are among those to make appearances) and excellently surreal asides -- one of the highlights of the first episode finds Aukerman stepping outside to put more money in his parking meter in what's. »
