Weird Al’s 10 Best Live Performances

Posted by on

Don’t call it a comeback, because he’s been weird for years. All the cool kids got to see the master at work when they had their faces rocked off this past weekend by Weird Al Yankovic at the Governor’s Ball in NYC. It was just one of many times Weird Al proved that his rockstar status is no joke. Check out some of the iconic musical comedians’s greatest live performances, and be sure to tune into IFC on June 19th when the legend gets inducted into College Humor’s Comedy Music Hall of Fame.

10. “Canadian Idiot” (2007)

Oh, Canada. We’re laughing with you, not at you. Ok maybe at you, too.


9. “White & Nerdy” (2012)

Not many people can pull off riding a Segway in a live rap performance.


8. “Word Crimes” (2015)

Every student in America should get extra credit for seeing this song live.


7. “Like a Surgeon” (1996)

Well, this is one way to get subscribers on the Disney channel.


6. “Tacky” (2014)

This is definitely better than the original.


5. “Pretty Fly for a Rabbi” (1999)

Weird Al is still cooler than The Offspring.


4. “Amish Paradise” (2011)

Nothing screams Amish anthem like a rap song about butter churning.


3. “Eat It” (1984)

This song inspired a whole generation to overindulge.


2. “Smells Like Nirvana” (2011)

Al hilariously spoofed Nirvana’s famously garbled lyrics with this hit sing. Fun fact: when Kurt Cobain heard that Al wanted to cover one of his songs, he assumed it would be a food-based parody.


1. “Fat” (2012)

Al was body positive way before there was ever a movement.

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.

Cocktail Supplies

You’ll need them to get through the holidays.
