Watch Fred Armisen, Bill Hader, and Seth Meyers Cause Some Hilarious Trouble At The Atlantic’s Documentary Now! Screening

Documentary Now Screening Event

Posted by on

It was a mini-Saturday Night Live reunion on Tuesday night, when The Atlantic hosted an exclusive screening and panel discussion to kick off the new IFC series Documentary Now!.

After a screening of the first two episodes, creators Fred Armisen, Bill Hader, Seth Meyers and Rhys Thomas sat down for a discussion with The Atlantic’s editor-at-large Steve Clemons and MSNBC’s Alex Wagner. The journalists quickly found themselves at the mercy of the comedians, who used the interview as an opportunity to make each other laugh along with answering questions. But really, would you expect anything less?

When the moderators were able to get a question in, the funny men insisted the hilarious tributes to films like Grey Gardens and Nanook of the North are meant to celebrate documentary filmmaking in all its many forms.  As Hader noted,

“I’m a big film fan,” Hader said. “I get excited when they tell me they actually got the lenses they shot [acclaimed Errol Morris documentary] The Thin Blue Line on. We were all, like, ‘Yeaaaaaahhhhhhh!'”

Check out the full video of the event courtesy of The Atlantic below. And be sure to catch the premiere of Documentary Now! on Thursday, August 20th at 10P on IFC.

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.
