0:00

Scott Aukerman, you may not know the name but he's one of the most interesting people working and innovating in comedy today.

He's the co-creator of the wildly popular online series Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis interviewing the likes of Brad Pitt, Barack Obama, Justin Bieber - to name a few.

He's the creator of the TV show Comedy Bang! Bang! and his podcast commands over two million listeners a month.

Not only that, he's built a network called Earwolf for other comedians to podcast.

"It has been really interesting," says Aukerman, who is currently touring Australia with a live version of Comedy Bang! Bang!

"I kinda knew that podcasting was gonna be big and my partner and I looked at forecasts.

"We saw roughly that it was going to grow by 250 per cent, but it was very hard to convince anyone that it was going to be a big deal."

Scott Aukerman is currently touring Australia with Comedy Bang! Bang! live.
