IFC and CollegeHumor (CollegeHumor.com) have come together to create the celebration that comedy music fans have been waiting for—CollegeHumor’s Comedy Music Hall of Fame. The hour-long special will honor the most important form of music—the type that makes you laugh. Hosted by comedy music super-fan Paul F. Tompkins (Bojack Horseman, No, You Shut Up!, Comedy Bang! Bang!, Curb Your Enthusiasm), the show will premiere on Friday, June 19, airing on IFC at 10pm ET/PT and on CollegeHumor.com immediately following the first broadcast.

During this hilarious tribute, Tompkins will guide viewers through the best of comedy music and debut exclusive new videos featuring some of the genre’s latest up-and-coming stars. To help celebrate the craft that never takes itself too seriously, Tompkins will be joined for sketches and interviews by some of the best names in comedy music including Tenacious D, The Gregory Brothers, Trevor Moore, CDZA, Rachel Bloom and Patrick Noth, as well as comedian Scott Aukerman. And of course, the evening would not be complete without paying tribute to the godfather of comedy music himself, “Weird Al” Yankovic, who will be honored with an absurd induction into the Comedy Music Hall of Fame.

In the days following the Friday, June 19 debut, CollegeHumor will release a selection of individual videos, sketches and extended interviews from the show. Here’s a preview of Paul F. Tompkins as host:

“There couldn’t be a more perfect host than Paul F. Tompkins or a better partner than CollegeHumor to help us try to win an Emmy® and a Grammy® with a single hour of outrageous musical programming,” said Jennifer Caserta, IFC’s president.

“From our viral hits Brohemian Rhapsody to Look at This Instagram, comedy music is as much a part of CollegeHumor’s DNA as any other content we’ve produced,” said Shane Rahmani, General Manager of CollegeHumor. “The genre has exploded in popularity and we’re thrilled to partner with IFC and Paul F. Tompkins in shining an ironically self-important light on the talent—both emerging and established—that have inspired us through the years.”

CollegeHumor’s Comedy Music Hall of Fame is produced by Big Breakfast, the production company behind CollegeHumor Originals. Executive Producers of the special include Sam Reich, Spencer Griffin and Jon Cohen of Big Breakfast, Drew Buckley and Shane Rahmani of Electus, and Salli Frattini of Sunset Lane Entertainment.

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.
