Yes, the dream of the ‘90s is coming to an end. Put a bird on it, draw the shutters on Women and Women first, and every other Portlandia reference you can think of. Fred and Carrie will be back for Season 8 in 2018, but it’ll be their last in Portland.
Just yesterday saw the likely-penultimate season of IFC’s Portlandia releasing its expansive list of guest stars, ahead of Season 7's early January premiere. Now, see a few in action as SNL star Vanessa Bayer, Laurie Metcalf and NBA player Damian Lillard make their debuts with five new clips from IFC.
Portlandia never fails to bring with it a treasury of comedy stars, and Season 7 is no exception. Ahead of a January 2017 premiere, Fred and Carrie are adding to their weird world everyone from Broad City stars to the B-52's, while Kyle MacLachlan and more book their returns.
Portlandia might have gotten just a bit too real for its famous feminist bookstore, but Season 7 is definitely swinging in the opposite direction. See for yourself, as Fred and Carrie finally make a stand for Men’s Rights in an extended sneak peek of Portlandia Season 7.
At least half of Portlandia’s feminist bookstore sketches involve Fred and Carrie’s Candace and Toni cynically deriding everything in sight, adding an extra layer of irony to their new controversy. The real feminist bookstore behind production has severed ties with the IFC series, accusing Portlandia of being “trans-antagonistic” and fueling gentrification.
Ratings might not have reflected as much, but Fred Armisen’s return to the SNL stage for its Season 41 finale definitely felt like one of the better, weirder outings of the year. We’ve a long ways to go before Season 42 starts gearing up this fall, so enjoy the last bit with a delightfully bizarre cut sketch of Fred Armisen in funny coats!
There were plenty of fantastic moments in SNL’s Season 41 finale, and while the last sketch of the night might not have been the most laugh-out-loud funny among them, it was definitely the most wonderful. Host Fred Armisen brought a few of his fellow SNL vets together along with a couple of special guests to form the perfect, subtly quirky ’70s southern jam band, complete with 20-something members and a tambourine or two.
SNL vet Fred Armisen returned to Studio 8H this weekend to host the Season 41 finale, and as you might expect, things got pretty weird. In between delivering the longest, most delightfully strange monologue in recent memory and reviving a couple of fan-favorite characters, Armisen starred in this pre-recorded spoof of Dead Poets Society. Riffing on a 27-year-old drama is certainly unexpected, but not nearly as unexpected as what happens at the end of this thing.
Not long ago it was rumored that SNL vet Fred Armisen would be the voice of Krang in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (they really couldn’t go with a shorter title there, huh?). We’ve seen the beloved brainy villain in the trailers for the sequels, but we haven’t heard him speak just yet — and there may be a reason for that, as Armisen has apparently been replaced.
At long last, all our efforts to brave another SNL season will pay off when distinguished alum Fred Armisen takes the stage to host the Season 41 finale. Armisen hasn’t exactly been a stranger to Studio 8H, but seems a bit forgetful in his first SNL finale promos with fellow veteran Kate McKinnon.
