IFC's delightfully absurd show, "Comedy! Bang! Bang!," is finally doing that all-important television staple: the musical episode!
This Friday, the humor show does its own take on "The Phantom of the Opera," when guest star Thomas Lennon ("Reno 911") tries to steal away another guest, Casey Wilson ("Happy Endings"), from host Scott Aukerman.
In this exclusive clip from the episode, co-host Reggie Watts narrates (in song) Aukerman's awkward interview with Wilson.
"Is that question no good?" a fretful Aukerman croons.
"He's still as balsa wood!" Wilson warbles while rolling her eyes.
As Watts continues to spy on their interview, host and guest duet, "This is not good, not good, really really bad TV!"
Perhaps the fake show-within-a-show is bad TV, but the zany "Comedy! Bang! Bang!" isn't! And Wilson's beautiful voice is always a pleasure to listen to.
The musical episode airs Friday, Sept. 13 at 10 p.m. on IFC.
