With a third season of Todd Margaret premiering on IFC on January 7th, David Cross continues a hot streak that stretches back decades. But 2015 was no doubt a high point for the comedian, as it saw him reunite with longtime collaborator Bob Odenkirk on the new sketch show W/ Bob and David, direct a movie and prepare the unexpected third season of Todd Margaret. To get you ready for the return of a very, very different Todd, check out David Cross’ funniest moments from 2015.

5. The “Know Your Rights” Sketch from W/ Bob and David

Cross and Odenkirk came out firing with their Netflix sketch show W/ Bob and David. The duo unleashed the same mix of high and low comedy, all tied together with a circuitous through line, that made their HBO series Mr. Show a cult hit. In this topical spoof of social justice vigilantes in the digital age, Cross plays a Internet troll come to life, trying to prove that cops are bad at any cost.

4. His directorial debut Hits

While Hits, Cross’ directorial debut, was first screened at the Sundance Film Festival in 2014, it was only released to the larger public in the last year. The story of a man who unwittingly becomes a viral sensation on the Internet, the film starred some of the best comedians working today, including Matt Walsh and Comedy Bang! Bang! regular James Adomian. Proving Cross understands how media works these days, Hits also has the unique distinction of being the first movie to ever be released exclusively on a pay-what-you-want model through BitTorrent.

3. His 24-Hour Play

David Cross wrote the play “Tears of God in a Universe of Men” for the Urban Arts Partnership in November, as part of their 24 Hour Plays festival. That means that the show went from inception to performance in 24 short hours. Cross’ play starred his wife, Amber Tamblyn, along with Julia Stiles, who posted the above photo of the cast on Instagram.

2. The Acapella MC in Pitch Perfect 2

Director Elizabeth Banks said that David Cross was her favorite cameo in her directorial debut, Pitch Perfect 2. A master of ceremonies for the ultimate riff-off, Cross even ad-libbed one of her favorite lines in the movie.

1. The “C-Word” Sketch on W/ Bob and David (NSFW)

One of the best sketches from the new season of W/ Bob and David, Cross shows that there’s power in the words we choose. Even if we’re a dumbass.

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.

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.
