I got to sit down with Scott Aukerman to talk about his new IFC show, and with Jason Mantzoukas to watch him make fun of Scott a lot. 
socalfood:

Midnight Snack: La Poubelle with Scott Aukerman & Jason Mantzoukas
Farley: As far as the IFC show goes, do you feel like it’s been a long time coming?
Scott: Too long! Like, what the fuck took it so long?!
Jason: Woah, woah, woah. Be humble, Scott.
Scott: Shut up Jason. Who are you to think that I shouldn’t have a TV show?!
Jason: This interview is not going to turn out the way you want it to.
Scott: Honestly though, it’s crazy to me that I have a TV show. It’s weird. I don’t deserve it.
Jason: I agree. Everybody agrees.
Scott: When I first started and I got into comedy and I got onto “Mr. Show with Bob and David,” I assumed that I would be starring in my own show the very next year.
Jason: That’s the whole thing. I remember starting in 1998 and thinking that I’d be on SNL in a couple of years. Not the case. At all.
