We can't wait for Portlandia to hit our airways. The show features Carrie Brownstein of Sleater-Kinney fame and Fred Armisen, the once and future Barack Obama on Saturday Night Live in a sketch comedy show dedicated to gently skewering Portland, Oregon.

Thunderant is Fred and Carrie's sketch comedy duo that was the predecessor to Portlandia. In fact, if you are a Thunderant devotee, you may recognize some of the characters in Portlandia. To help prepare you for the silly stereotypes and seriously fun personalities that fill Portlandia, we have put together a few of our favorite Thunderant sketches. If you watch them now, think how cool you'll be in January when you can tell your friends, "Oh yeah, I know all about Thunderant." Stay tuned to IFC and we...
