Some of the things we learned from Reggie Watts’ Reddit AMA

Posted by on

Comedy Bang! Bang! one-man band Reggie Watts hopped on Reddit yesterday for an Ask Me Anything (AMA) and answered all the questions lobbed at him. Apparently he had so much fun doing the JASH AMA that he couldn’t wait to go back for more.

* Comedy Bang! Bang! season two is underway (we knew that already) and Scott and Reggie apparently “goof around” on set. Get back to work, guys!
“Yes, we’re halfway through filming season 2 of Comedy Bang Bang. Scott is one of the smartest, funniest guys I know and it’s a pleasure to work with him. We goof around and make bad puns to each other a lot.”

* Reggie is planning on doing an album:
“Yes, the plan is to do some straight-up music stuff this year and release it this year. You can subscribe to my YouTube channel if you want to check out my new stuff.”

* After working together on the film “Shut Up and Play the Hits,” Reggie is hoping to team up with LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy:
“Yea, James and I have talked about doing something together but he’s such a busy guy it will happen when it happens naturally.”

* Reggie’s hair is not what it seems:
“It’s holographic, so there’s nothing to send.” Also, it apparently tastes like “Angie Stone.”

* Reggie has some collaborators in mind, including Robert Glasper, who he collaborated with at SF Sketchfest
“I would like to collaborate with…I don’t know, maybe Jack White would be fun? Robert Glasper. Or Michael Mayer from Kompact Records.” Later adding, “It would be an honor to work with Jack, he’s a very complicated person who’s capable of almost anything.”

* He doesn’t know where his inspiration comes from
“Yeah, I have no idea really. They just happen in the moment, whatever the dumbest shit is, that’s what happens. For the inspiration for my latest video “If you’re Fucking, You’re Fucking” – the inspiration was just how dumb it is. The idea of how dumb it is to have a song that addresses a question that no one would ever ask…”

* Reggie also had some advice for aspiring improv performers
“Just don’t be afraid to do really dumb shit.”

* The most surprising thing we found out was that Reggie was on Bill Nye the Science Guy for something called “Cave Thing”:

Read the whole AMA here. It’s fun and will kill at least 25 minutes of the work day.

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.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

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.

It’s the final countdown to Christmas and thanks to IFC’s movie marathon all Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, you can revel in classic ’80s films AND find inspiration for your last-minute gifts. Here are our recommendations, if you need a head start:

Musical Instrument

Great analog entertainment substitute when you refuse to give your kid the Nintendo Switch they’ve been drooling over.

Breakfast In Bed

Any significant other or child would appreciate these Uncle Buck-approved flapjacks. Just make sure you’re not stuck on clean up duty.

Cocktail Supplies

You’ll need them to get through the holidays.

Dance Lessons

So you can learn to shake-shake-shake (unless you know ghosts willing to lend a hand).

Comfy Clothes

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



Get even more great inspiration all Christmas Eve and Day on IFC, and remember…
