‘Portlandia’ Stars Share Their Awkward Conversation Stoppers With Conan
Do you have a 'Portlandia' fan in your life that's hard to buy for? Perhaps you've already purchased them every bird-adorned item you could possible find? 'Portlandia' stars and creators Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein have just the ticket for you -- it's a "hands on" and "do it yourself art book," and it will teach the people you love to crowd fund their baby, escape the boredom of rain, and stop conversations before they even start.
The duo took their new book to 'Conan' last night, and host Conan O'Brien and his guests soon engaged in a round of something they like call "conversation starters." Sure, it's easy to start a chat in Portlandia (buzzwords: disabled cats), but learning how to stop them is a skill that requires some work (or flash cards).
