In case you don’t listen to the Comedy Bang! Bang! podcast as soon as Earwolf releases a new one to you hounds, then here’s the news as delivered by Scott Aukerman in the third-year finale of CBB:

Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis is going a full half-hour! On TV! For Comedy Central! With Tina Fey, Jon Stewart and “Sir Richard Branson”! To air just before The Comedy Awards!

OK, I’m paraphrasing. But, great news, huh? “Yeah, not a bad list,” Aukerman said. He directed the special.

“Between Two Ferns: A Fairytale of New York,” airs at 8:30 p.m. Eastern on May 6, 2012, on Comedy Central.
