In an interview with Vulture, Comedy Bang! Bang! host Scott Aukerman revealed that, in addition to being a major public advocate of this year’s brand-new Outstanding Variety Sketch Series category at the Emmys, he’ll also be a writer for this year’s ceremony. Host Andy Samberg approached Aukerman and Comedy Bang! Bang! head writer Neil Campbell about collaborating, and Aukerman agreed—on the condition that he bring on the rest of CBB‘s staff.
While Comedy Bang! Bang! wasn’t nominated in the category Aukerman campaigned for, the comedian is up for an Outstanding Short Format Live-Action Entertainment Award for his popular web series Between Two Ferns, hosted by Zach Galifianakis. While that category isn’t presented live, interested parties can catch Aukerman and company’s handiwork on September 20th on Fox.
