As we wait for a new episode of Portlandia to air, we find ourselves looking for ways to fill the time until Friday at 10/9c. We’re making doilies and micro-separating our recycling into different shades of green, brown and clear glass (yes there are shades of clear) and, of course, dusting our vagina pillows. Luckily, Kumail Nanjiani is here with another installment of Kumail Tours Portland to keep us entertained until we get to see the latest episode in Portlandia’s brand new third season.

In the continuing adventures of Kumail in Portland, Kumail heads to Peeps Unlimited, a sort of halfway house for retired chickens and ducks located a few miles outside of Portland. Watch a brand new installment of Kumail Tours Portland and be sure to tune in to a new episode of Portlandia on Friday at 10/9c:

Watch as Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein help rename a street in Portlandia

Posted by on

The third season of Portlandia kicked off last Friday with a double helping of everyone’s favorite sketch comedy show. During the back-to-back episodes we welcomed back Toni and Candace, Peter and Nance, The Mayor, and, of course, Fred and Carrie. Did you miss it? Don’t worry, check here for your chance to catch a repeat performance.

During last Friday’s premiere, we saw Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein tackling one of those pesky civic problems that every community must deal with: Re-naming city streets. Unfortunately, though, in Portlandia, everyone has a lot of ideas and everyone loves a good compromise. And as you can see in the photo above, compromise makes for a very long street name.

Watch a clip from season three’s premiere and tune in for a new episode of Portlandia on Friday at 10/9c:

Meet The Portlandia Co-Op: Chris Todd

Posted by on

As the new season of Portlandia gets underway, and a new episode airs each Friday at 10/9c, we are yielding control of the @IFCportlandia Twitter feed to a few lucky, talented members of the Portlandia Co-Op, a community where fans can join together to support their favorite show. Each week we’ll take a few minutes to introduce you to the fans who are operating behind-the-scenes to make @IFCportlandia the destination for Portlandia fans on Twitter.

This is Chris Todd, our inaugural guest tweeter:

When you follow along with @IFCportlandia this week, you’ll be chatting with him.

Name, city of residence and occupation

Chris Todd, Silver Spring Maryland (or Washington DC, if I want to sound cooler), Federal Contractor in Intelligence Community

Do you recycle? Compost? Bring your own bag?

I definitely recycle, but answering the rest will make me sound like a bad person.

Have you ever been to Portland?

Not once, but it’s nothing I have against Portland. I’ve just never traveled west of the Mississippi.

Who is your favorite character on Portlandia?

Every character Kumail Nanjiani plays, which I guess is the same character each time but with different props.

Which character do you think you are most like?
I’m probably most like the Mayor. I wear ties to work but I’m dying to be creative.

What is your most Portlandian trait?

I can’t say that I’m all that Portlandian, but I’m striving to become more so. I do love brunch though. Probably it’s the brunch thing.

Why did you want to run Portlandia’s Twitter feed?

I have a passion for television and IFC/Portlandia is everything I love about it. I just wanted to be as close to the action as possible and maybe showcase my creative side for a larger audience than I’m used to.

What’s your favorite sketch?

This is a hard question, but I have to say Hide and Seek. I’m not a good hider.

Have you ever waited in line for brunch?

DC doesn’t generally have many lines for Brunch, at least not at the places I can afford. So, no. But I would.

What’s your prediction for season three?

It will be great, funny, and keep way too many people inside their homes on a Friday night. In a good way.
