The Ultimate Comedy Fantasy Weekend Starts Thursday on IFC


Posted by on

Look! Up in the sky! Those fireworks aren’t marking our nation’s independence, they are alerting you to the fact that this Thursday we’re kicking off the Ultimate Comedy Fantasy Weekend. That’s right, this weekend’s the festivities don’t have to end when the rocket’s red glare fades from the sky, in fact, the fun is just getting started! Our Ultimate Comedy Fantasy Weekend is so big it can’t be contained by a measly Saturday and Sunday, so we’re kicking things off on Thursday with a National Lampoon movie marathon and ends on Sunday with back-to-back comedies like Arrested Development and Portlandia with hours of laughs in between. Remember, there’s no better way to work out your abs than with belly laughs.

Here are some of the highlights to watch this weekend on IFC, but check the schedule for full listings:


Tune in at 8/7c for “Kick-Ass,” a film that totally lives up to its name. Despite a complete lack of extraordinary powers, a teenager (Aaron Johnson) reinvents himself as a superhero and, together with a father/daughter team of vigilantes, takes on a mob boss.

At 10:30PM it’s Broken Lizard’s Club Dread where a killer terrorizes vacationers and staff members (Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan) at a Caribbean resort owned by a has-been rocker (Bill Paxton).


At 3:45p.m., we’re showing Robin Hood: Men in Tights. This updated classic stars Cary Elwes as the infamous Sherwood Forest archer who leads his merry mixed bag of outlaws against Prince John (Richard Lewis) and the Sheriff of Rottingham (Roger Rees).

Then at 8/7c it’s Undercover Brother starring Eddie Griffin as a low-rent private detective who poses as a preppy nerd in order to foil a plot by conspirators.


Tune in at 4/3c to watch as the brave puppet commandos of Team America: World Police protect the planet from fiendish terrorists and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il (Trey Parker).

Then stay tuned at 6/5c, for National Lampoon’s Adam & Eve, starring Cameron Douglas as a college senior who finds his patience tested when he learns his beautiful new girlfriend (Emmanuelle Chriqui) is a virgin. The men of Porky’s can’t relate since they are spending their time spying on girls and getting even with the owner (Chuck Mitchell) of a raunchy bar in 1950s Florida. Tune in at 8/7c for your daily dose of raunchy college comedy.


Watch back-to-back-to-back episodes of Malcolm in the Middle(9am/8am c), Arrested Development(starts at 12/11c),Portlandia (starts at 3/2c) and Comedy Bang! Bang! all day, because you’ve earned it.

Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Rev Up

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
