The Birthday Boys
As you may have head, IFC recently greenlit ten half-hour episodes of "The Birthday Boys," a new scripted original sketch comedy, which is executive produced by Bob Odenkirk ("Breaking Bad," "Mr. Show") and Ben Stiller (The upcoming "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty," "Zoolander"). The series is in the classic vein of absurd/silly/smart/funny variety shows like two of our favorites "Mr. Show" and "Monty Python." Each episode will feature sketches that twist real-life moments and cultural touchstones."The Birthday Boys are too good to just be making viral videos. They are funny enough to fill time between episodes of Portlandia," said Ben Stiller. "I'm thrilled to be working with Bob Odenkirk again on a TV project. We try to do something every 20 years or so." Sounds good right?

But who are The Birthday Boys? Along with Odenkirk, cast of "The Birthday Boys" are a Los Angeles comedy group who just so happens to have the exact same name as the show. The comedy group includes Jefferson Dutton, Dave Ferguson, Mike Hanford, Tim Kalpakis, Matt Kowalick, Mike Mitchell and Chris VanArtsdalen—whose combined credits include "Parks and Recreation", "The Office," "Conan," "Comedy Bang! Bang!", and "Portlandia." You can catch their act at places like the UCB Theatre Los Angeles and the Just for Laughs Festival. The series is written and co-directed by The Birthday Boys and Bob Odenkirk and with that much talent involved there's no way the show won't be laugh-out-loud funny and fit right in with our ever-growing line-up of "Always On, Slightly Off" programming. Added Odenkirk, "The Birthday Boys are a super funny and fresh new comic voice. I will try not to slow them down."
