With all the buzz generating about the great new comedies (Larry Sanders! Mr. Show! Ben Stiller!) joining the IFC schedule in January 2011, let’s not forget the incredible original programming we are also launching. The Onion News Network and Portlandia will premiere back-to-back on January 21, 2011 at 10 and 10:30 p.m. ET/PT.
As we deck the halls and twiddle our thumbs awaiting the arrival of Santa and soon after our sure-to-be favorite shows, we can get to know the cast of Portlandia via its very own home on IFC.com. Click on over for a glimpse of what it’s like to work with SNL’s Fred Armisen, an overview of the impending episodes, and start learning all the catchy phrases you’ll need to sound like a Portlandia native. Yes, soon everyone in the know will be shrieking “Put a bird on it!” and “Cacao!” at our friends and loved ones, like we’re in a non-freaky cult of cool people who say funny things. Jealous making, right?
Here’s a sneak peek at the skewering of Portland, Oregon in the hands of Portlandia. Please to enjoy:
