5 Twins Who Make Us Double Over With Laughter

Tegan and Sara bring their Wonder Twins power to Comedy Bang! Bang! this Friday at 11:30P on IFC.

Posted by on

We tend to think of twins from pop culture in two ways: They either haunt our nightmares (The Shining!), or crack us up with twice the comedic timing. With musicians/funny folks Tegan and Sara stopping by Comedy Bang! Bang! this Friday at 11:30P, we thought we’d take a look at a few of our favorite twins that have us doubled (get it??) over with laughter.

5. Tia and Tamera Mowry

While they’re best known as reality stars today, Tia and Tamera kept ’90s kids in stitches with their hit series Sister, Sister. Only the ’90s could have given two sets of twins hit family shows.

4. Tegan and Sara

The musical twins are perfectly in sync, whether its on their new albumLove You to Death, or in this clip from Friday’s brand new Comedy Bang! Bang!, which finds the sisters being interrupted by a rap break from The Lonely Island guys. And really, even though they aren’t related, the Lonely Island are basically triplets.

3. Giovanni and Marissa Ribisi

Giovanni Marissa Ribisi

While the Ribisi twins aren’t know for starring alongside each other, both have carved out interesting careers on their own. Marissa is probably best known for playing saucy nerd Cynthia in the high school classic Dazed and Confused. Giovanni has dabbled in both comedy and drama, with turns in everything from Lost in Translation to Ted 2. It’s safe to say these two have been making us laugh for longer than the Sprouse twins have been alive.

2. The Sklar Brothers

Coming out of the late ’90s NYC alt comedy scene, these brothers have always been at the center of the comedy universe with TV shows and their own acclaimed podcast, Sklarbro Country. They even turned up on Maron this season, inviting a post-rehab Marc on their podcast and encouraging him to return to stand-up, with less than stellar results.

1. The Lucas Brothers

Lucas Bros.

Apologies to the Olsens: no twins are hotter right now than The Lucas Brothers. With their own animated series The Lucas Bros. Moving Co., and a scene-stealing turn in 22 Jump Street, these identical bros are bringing a “twinny” turn to the stoner slacker vibe made famous by Cheech and Chong.

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.

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.
