Funny Or Die’s wildly popular Web series Between Two Ferns is headed to DVD, producer Scott Aukerman confirmed to Laughspin today. The producer, who’s currently the host of IFC’s hilarious anti-talk show Comedy Bang Bang (based on Aukerman’s long-running podcast), says he’s hoping for a December release date (perfect stocking stuffer or Hanukkah gift!).
The DVD set will include every episode of the awkwardly hilarious show, the special 30-minute episode (featuring Tina Fey and Jon Stewart) that aired on Comedy Central prior to this year’s Comedy Awards, as well as some sweet bonus features. Aukerman was quick to remind us that Ferns host Galifianakis “has a lot on his mind” these days, so it’ll be a challenge to get the DVD done by Christmas.
That’s an understatement, seeing as Galifianakis is no doubt prepping to do press for his upcoming flick The Campaign, where he stars opposite Will Ferrell, both playing unlikely political candidates. He’s also working on road trip movie You Are Here, a movie starring Owen Wilson and Amy Poehler. And let’s not forget the third installment of The Hangover, which is currently in pre-production.
Aukerman’s plenty busy himself, as he’s about to embark on Comedy Bang Bang Live, a multi-city tour that will feature stand-up, improv games, exclusive sneak peeks of the IFC show and drop-ins from the likes of Paul F. Tompkins, Tim Heidecker and James Adomian. You can check out more info about the tour here. The tour kicks off July 29 in Minneapolis. Opening each show will be Kurt Braunohler, the host of IFC’s warped game show Bunk.
