Fred Armisen Shares His Citizen’s Arrest Tall Tale With the ‘Late Night With Seth Meyers’ Crowd
While the Seth Meyers take on ’Late Night’ is still feeling itself out (hey, they’re only four shows in!), one of the seemingly consistent bits — a post-monologue chat with Meyers and band leader Fred Armisen – continues to be a highlight.
Ever gracious, Meyers has been sure to mention both how busy Armisen is and the upcoming premiere of the comedian’s popular comedy show, ‘Portlandia,’ every time the duo get to jawing. As simple as that may sound, Armisen has been bringing the bone-dry wit to all of the exchanges, mainly by just totally lying about all sorts of random things and delivering those stories with nothing but the absolute minimum of irony.
So what’s Fred up to these days? Apparently making citizen’s arrests around Manhattan during his off hours.
