Scott Aukerman talks about presiding over the second season of IFC’s Comedy Bang! Bang!

Scott Aukerman doesn’t host Comedy Bang! Bang! on IFC, so much as he presides over a circus of characters and interviews that aren’t interviews, to the point where any viewers who thought they’d tuned into a proverbial late-night talk show come to realize that they’ll enjoy it once they embrace the absurdity of it all. The show returns for its second season on Friday. As does Aukerman’s right-hand, two-handed musical genius of a sidekick in Reggie Watts.

Movie review and analysis: Kevin Hart, “Let Me Explain”

There’s more than a little bit of myth-building going on right from the start of Kevin Hart’s newest stand-up comedy concert film. But when you open with $17.4 million at the box office over the extended Fourth of July holiday weekend, who will argue when what’s mythic suddenly appears to be very, very real.
