Check out the 6-part IFC Original short-based comedy series by SNL’s Fred Armisen and Sleater-Kenny ex-band member, Carrie Brownstein. It premiered on IFC, January 21, 2011. See the fun and silly eccentricities of the city, its inhabitants, and the culture.
It generally reflects the microcosm that is Portland, Oregon. Plus, check out Thunderant , the seedling that spawned Portlandia. Shot entirely in Portland, OR, the series was created and written by Fred Armisen, Carrie Brownstein and Jonathan Krisel (SNL, Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!).
Hey, some people got NYC, Paris, or LA. Portland has it’s own kind weirdness. It includes a little of this and a little bit of that.
