Top 10 Moments of Festival Supreme 2014


Posted by on

Summer may just be getting started, but we’re already looking forward to fall. Why, you ask? Because Tenacious D’s Festival Supreme returns to Shrine Expo Halls & Grounds on Sat, Oct 10. Before nabbing tickets to what LA Weekly calls the “Coachella of comedy,” let’s take a look at the best moments from last year.

10. Bridget Everett Gets Touchy

The alt-cabaret performer is best known for her hilariously provocative storytelling and wildly sexual on-stage antics — both of which were on full display during this late afternoon set, and we do mean “full display.” Everett danced, sang, flashed the audience and at one point gave a male fan an experience he won’t soon forget: some good, ol’ fashioned motor-boating! A perfect way to start the day in anyone’s book, right?

9. Cheech & Chong Light It Up

The notorious stoner comedians returned to original form, dedicating their set to the legalization of marijuana and playing through their classic bits (Cheech suggests to Chong right before lighting a fictional doobie, “C’mon man, let’s get Chinese eyes”).

8. The Aquabats’ Super Show

The Aquabats straight up crushed it. The beloved ska-punk band of crime-fighting heroes threw beach balls into the crowd, brought on DJ Lance Rock – who had opened the main stage (the “Franken Stage”) to start the day – and really amped things up by setting a fire extinguisher off on a giant inflatable alien and dinosaur. [Please note: no aliens or dinosaurs were harmed during this killer performance]

7. Comedy Bang! Bang! starring Scott Aukerman & Pals

IFC funnyman Scott Aukerman brought a live rendition of his Comedy Bang! Bang! podcast to Festival Supreme and surprised a packed Shrine Auditorium with special guests Zach Galifianakis, Adam Scott & Lauren Lapkus. The banter that ensued (Galifiankis at one point mentioned he was there as his new persona, spelled Z-A-Q-U-E) was a “supreme” highlight.

6. The Return of Fred Armisen

In 2013, Fred Armisen took the Festival Supreme stage as his veteran punk character Ian Rubbish. Armisen returned in 2014, this time as himself. He began his set with some awkward fist-pumping to “Blue Moon” by The Marcels before a rather earnest and so-unfunny-that-it’s-funny cover of “Life Goes On” by The Damned.

5. Tenacious D Welcome Special Guest Weird Al

The D gave its Festival Supreme crowd a short but power-packed old-school acoustic performance. Dressed as devil and angel, the duo delivered favorites such as “Tribute” and “Fuck Her Gently” before calling up special guest Weird Al Yankovic for the closer. The crowd screamed for more, to which Jack Black humorously shot back: “You know how long the Beatles played at Shea Stadium? 25 minutes!”

4. Circus of Death & Costumes Galore!

The spirit of Halloween was alive and well at the second installment of Festival Supreme. Not only did countless fans dress up, but the one-day fest hosted a new attraction called the “Circus of Death” – a dark and humorous attraction of art and sound helmed by Steven Hull. The spooky extravaganza featured a hand-made merry-go-round, creepy puppet shows and a miniature train ride.

3. The Wizarding Word of Workaholics

One might assume Workaholics would do a sketch routine or somehow bring fans a live version of its TV show. Instead, the dudes turned back the clocks and performed a hip-hop laden set, blasting through older YouTube hits like “Wizards Never Die”. Oh, and they were in full wizard garb.

2. Dethklok Metalocalypse Brings the Metal

Dethklok closed the evening with a bang, playing through hyper-speed riffs while accompanied by in-time background animations of the band’s virtual counterpart. All in all, it made for a pretty stunning audio-visual experience, and capped the night in epic fashion.

1. The State’s 20-Year Reunion

The full ensemble behind MTV’s popular sketch comedy series “The State” reunited for a twenty-year reunion performance and it was every bit as awesome as it sounds! Highlight: David Wain, Ken Marino & Kevin Allison cozied up behind a keyboard singing “The Jew, The Italian & The Red Head Gay” before all eight other members (including Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter and Joe Lo Truglio) burst onto the stage, culminating in a full-on musical frenzy.

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

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.
