Fred Armisen Drumming Conan

Fred Armisen Jams With Conan’s Band in This Week’s Funniest Videos

This week we're laughing at Fred on the drums and Aubrey Plaza on Comedy Bang! Bang!.

Posted by on

It’s Father’s Day weekend, which can mean anything from bear hugs to awkward silence over TV dinners. But whatever your plans are for Sunday (a Stephen King movie marathon with dear ol’ dad, perhaps?), gear up for the weekend with a fleet of funny videos. (Dad can’t ground you for that, right?)

From Fred Armisen sitting in with the Basic Cable Band to Aubrey Plaza staring down death on Comedy Bang! Bang!, here are five funny things from this week you need to watch.

1. Amy Schumer and Anna Wintour Swap Lives

To celebrate her appearance on the cover of Vogue, comedian Amy Schumer spent a day in editor/fashion maven Anna Wintour’s stylish (and no doubt uncomfortable) shoes. Meanwhile, Anna hits the comedy club and tries out her new catchphrase, “Wintour is coming.”


2. Aubrey Plaza Goes Medieval, Almost Dies

Queen of shade Aubrey Plaza swings by Comedy Bang! Bang! tonight as a fair maiden of snark and sass. But due to an overzealous lunch, Aubrey finds herself flirting with mortality. (Catch back-to-back CB!B! episodes Fridays starting at 11P.)


3. Fred Armisen’s Jazz Drumming Tutorial

Fred stopped by Conan this week to show off a clip from Documentary Now! season two and talk about hosting the SNL season finale. And since he can never resist the opportunity for a drum sesh, Fred jumped behind the skins with the band and showed how easy jazz drummers have it.


4. They Might Be Giants/Star Wars Mashup

They Might Be Giants traffics in a special brand of musical pep. And as this mashup of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and TMBG’s fragmented track “Fingertips” off their 1992 album Apollo 18 proves, there might be a TMBG song for every occasion.


5. Honest Trailers: Finding Nemo

Looking back at a pre-Cars 2 Pixar is to witness a movie studio that can seemingly do no wrong. However, as the latest edition of “Honest Trailers” shows us, even Pixar in its prime isn’t immune to plot holes or logical incongruities. With Finding Dory hitting theaters, check out this lovingly nitpicky takedown of 2003’s Finding Nemo.

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.

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.

Cocktail Supplies

You’ll need them to get through the holidays.

With all the holiday meals, there may be some…embigenning.
