On Monday's "Comedy Bang Bang" podcast, Scott Aukerman announced that he'd just finished his first TV directing gig -- a 30-minute episode of "Between Two Ferns" that will air on Comedy Central May 6.
The Zach Galifianakis-hosted Funny Or Die web-series has been a favorite for fans of comedy and general goofiness alike, asking guests like Will Ferrell and Jennifer Aniston to sit between two potted ferns while the comedian does his best to make them feel wildly uncomfortable.
The episode, "Between Two Ferns: A Fairy Tale of New York," marks the series' jump out of America's computer screens and onto their TVs, and will feature interviews with guests Tina Fey, Jon Stewart and Sir Richard Branson. Bloggers are already speculating that Branson may end up being a comedian in character, but no matter what the case, that lineup is pretty unbeatable.
There's no word yet as to whether there will be more "Ferns" to come, or if this is a one-time affair.
The episode will air on Comedy Central May 6, 8:30 P.M. EST, right before the Comedy Awards.
