Watch: Here Are ‘The Walking Dead’ Creator's Alternate Names for 'Hungry Hungry Dead People' on ‘Comedy Bang! Bang!’

Scott Aukerman and Kid Cudi always bring out the most ridiculous side of their guests on “Comedy Bang! Bang!” So, dressed as what appears to be Dr. Frankenfurter and Riff Raff, they encourage “The Walking Dead” creator to explain why he doesn’t use the word “zombie” in the show.
According to Kirkman, he “wanted to create world where the concept of zombie didn’t exist.” Some alternative and sometime silly names he suggests include: Walkers, groaners and dead dudes. He nearly pushes his list too far, but rounds it all out in the end.
The next episode of “The Walking Dead” airs on AMC on Sunday, November 1.  Before that, make sure to check out Kirkman on “Comedy Bang! Bang” on IFC on Thursday, October 29.
