We’ve once again nearly completed this season’s tour of Portlandia, and intend to soak up as much as possible in the penultimate year. Check out an exclusive new clip from this Thursday’s ninth Season 7 episode, as Conan co-host Andy Richter makes his debut alongside Fred and Carrie, learning a valuable office skill.

Only two episodes remain in the seventh season of IFC’s Portlandia, including this Thursday’s “Passenger Rating.” Our exclusive clip from the March 2 outing sees Richter as a boss taking lessons from a local actor on how to fire employees, in the process making his Portlandia debut:

And so reads the full synopsis for “Passenger Rating:”

Carrie tries to improve her passenger rating on a ride sharing app. A local actor teaches a boss how to fire employees. The National Small Talk Convention takes place. Sandra develops a close relationship with her customer service representative.

Other Season 7 guest stars include Vanessa Bayer, Maria Bamford, Rachel Dratch, John Early, Judy Greer, Ryan Hansen, Tim Heidecker, Abbi Jacobson, Sam Richardson, Run the Jewels and The B-52's. Also returning from prior seasons are Steve Buscemi, Mitch Hurwitz, Natasha Lyonne, Kyle MacLachlan, and Kumail Nanjianai.

Time will tell if Portlandia feels any different in its eighth and final season in 2018 (Season 7 marks the last satirizing the Obama era), but in the meantime, check out Andy Richter’s Portlandia spot in the clip above, and watch the full “Passenger Rating” on Thursday, March 2 at 10:00 P.M. on IFC.
