Portlandia

Overview

Former “Saturday Night Live” cast member Fred Armisen and rock ‘n’ roll guitarist Carrie Brownstein first cracked up audiences as the internet sketch-comedy duo ThunderAnt. That led to this absurdist series set in Portland, Ore., that gently pokes fun at the laid-back Pacific Northwest city and the many eccentric characters that call it home.
