Mr. Show Reunited for an Epic Reddit AMA


Posted by on

In advance of their new book, Hollywood Said No!, and their tour (which kicks off in New York on Thursday), Bob Odenkirk, David Cross and Brian Posehn swung by Reddit for an AMA. Topics ranged from Mr. Show, Breaking Bad and the upcoming IFC series The Birthday Boys. It’s worth reading in full, but here are some highlights:


This goes for Bob and David: In your upcoming live Mr Show gigs, which fans do you think will be more annoying, the Arrested Development fans or the Breaking Bad ones?

(Bob here) Definitely Breaking Bad. They aren’t necessarily into comedy. This show is really for Mr Show fans.
(David) Absolutely. But I disagree about the show. There will absolutely be Arrested Development fans there.
(Bob here) There are going to be Mr. Show fans. The question is this: are people coming who are Breaking Bad fans and don’t know Mr. Show? No, they don’t even know it’s happening. There are many people who just know me from Mr. Show.
(David here) Mr. Show is such a niche thing.


For Bob: Since discovering Tim and Eric and making them successes, have you been flooded with people sending in their comedy stuff hoping to achieve the same success?

No I think people are pretty respectful. Occasionally I get something. But I am excited about the new show I’m working on coming out in October called The Birthday Boys, it’s going to be on IFC. I found them because they’re a sketch group in LA that participated in a benefit that my wife does every New Year’s and I got to know them and that show will come on in October.


Bob, what is the secret to great comedic yelling? You’re a master at it, and I want to become one too!

Bob Odenkirk: Have it come from a real deep place of genuine anger at the world. Good luck with it. It helps to have a shitty dad.

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.

Most people measure time in minutes, hours, days, years…At IFC, we measure it in sketches. And nothing takes us way (waaaaaay) back like Portlandia sketches. Yes, there’s a Portlandia milepost from every season that changed the way we think, behave, and pickle things. In honor of Portlandia’s 8th and final season, Subaru presents a few of our favorites.


Put A Bird On It

Portlandia enters the pop-culture lexicon and inspires us to put birds on literally everything.

Colin the Chicken

Who’s your chicken, really? Behold the emerging locavore trend captured perfectly to the nth degree.

Dream Of The ’90s

This treatise on Portland made it clear that “the dream” was alive and well.

No You Go

We Americans spend most of our lives in cars. Fortunately, there’s a Portlandia sketch for every automotive situation.

A-O River!

We learned all our outdoor survival skills from Kath and Dave.
