Posted by on

There’s a lot going on at SXSW 2013, but tonight you’re going to want to be at the IFC Crossroads House for two very special performances. First up is the Upright Citizens Brigade at 8:30 p.m. followed by our adopted comic Chris Gethard doing a live version of his cable access television show. Now that you know what you’re doing tonight, you can get back to day drinking and/or hearing about that one guy’s app which is totally going to kill it. Check the full schedule of events happening at the IFC Crossroads House here.

Here’s what to do tonight at SXSW:

Talkin Walkin Live Podcast Recording
6 p.m. at Esther’s Follies

Take a journey with host Christopher Walken – as channeled by Kevin Pollak (The Usual Suspects, Casino) – in this eclectic, inspired podcast that pairs everyone’s favorite deadpan actor with special guests to discuss current events, Hollywood memories and more.

Nick Turner & Acquaintances
6:30 p.m. at IFC Crossroads House

Improv comic Nick Turner (Best Week Ever) brings together some of his most talented acquaintances. Part standup show and part sketch comedy experiment, Nick Turner and Acquaintances (one of New York’s most exciting new monthly shows) features some of the best comics our host has met, and some of the most hastily assembled sketches he’s ever participated in. Turner – a current “Best Week Ever” cast member and former Montreal Comedy Festival “New Face” — knows some of the funniest people in the world, and he’s here to present a few to you with an evening of standup, sketches, plenty of confusion, and maybe even a video or two.

Upright Citizens Brigade
8:30 p.m. at IFC Crossroads House

Anything can happen and anyone can show up when the best and brightest comedians, improvisers and storytellers present the strangest, most terrifying, most hilarious night of their life. Stories and surprises that are too crazy not to be true, too amazing not to be missed.

Robert Kelly’s Nasty Show
10 p.m. at Esther’s Follies

Presented by The Laugh Button and Gotham Comedy Club, this show challenges comics to bring their bluest material. With Aisha Tyler, Matt Braunger, Jay Oakerson, Mark Normand

The Chris Gethard Show
10:30 at IFC Crossroads House

IFC’s Adopt-A-Comic Chris Gethard brings his public access variety show to Austin, which he proudly bills as “the most bizarre and often saddest talk show.” Expect an army of characters, stunts, video sketches, hilarious call-in topics, musical acts and unpredictable adventure.

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

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…
