If you can’t catch Action Bronson in-action at this weekend’s Dew Tour concert in Long Beach, you can watch Rap’s Renaissance Man on his new show, Traveling the Stars: “Ancient Aliens with Action Bronson and Friends.” The 10-part series premieres tonight at 11:00 PM ET/PT on VICELAND, the Crave-approved cable network from VICE and A+E Networks, which also broadcasts Bronson’s “high-larious” foodie travel show, F*ck, That’s Delicious.

The concept for Traveling the Stars, which Bronson described as a “variety show” in a recent interview I did with the Queens rapper and rollerblader (don’t believe me, read it here), is basically a spoof on neurotic after shows like AMC’s The Talking Dead. Some of the guests include Tyler, the Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, Schoolboy Q and Melissa Etheridge (oh, this I gotta watch). Like most great stoner ideas, the show was conceived while blazed, when Bronson did a special 4/20 viewing show of Ancient Aliens on the History Channel, which he has hailed as the as “‘the best thing that was ever created by man.”
“I’m a big Ancient Aliens fan,” Bronson said of the cult favorite show. “I love to watch it stoned out of my mind — with or without friends. We had such a good time doing it Special, we decided what the fuck, let’s turn that into a TV show.” See the trailer below.
