Weird Al joins ‘Comedy Bang! Bang’ as new bandleader

Weird Al and Scott Aukerman

IFC’s Comedy Bang Bang! has announced that Wierd Al Yankovic will be taking over for Kid Cudi as the bandleader/sidekick to host Scott Aukerman. Weird Al is no stranger to the show, having appeared on the show a few times as a guest. This is pretty exciting news for comedy fans, including Aukerman himself:

If you would have told me, when I was a teenager, listening and laughing along to Al’s In 3-D album, that one day I would partner up with him, I would have asked who you were and how you got in my room, Then I would have politely shown you the door. Because that’s how I was raised.

You may remember that Cudi took over for Reggie Watts‘ after he left the show to be the bandleader for The Late Late Show with James Corden.

Production with Weird Al has already begun, and the new season is supposed to air sometime in March. Check out an audio clip from Al’s appearance on the CBB podcast, and a video of him playing accordion with Reggie Watts, below.
