The National have appeared on practically every even vaguely prestigious television show out there. (They’re presumably still finding a way to write them into The Knick.) And they’re one of many indie bands who will show up on this season of Comedy Bang! Bang!, the IFC show built from the popular comedy podcast. They’re in this coming Friday’s episode, showing up as music teachers at a needy school. There are a few twists, and I’m pretty sure Matt Berninger sings a weird Irish reel before it’s all over. Watch the sketch below.
Comedy Bang! Bang! airs Friday at 11PM eastern on IFC.
