Chat live this Friday with Portlandia director Jonathan Krisel


Posted by on

Hey Portlandia fans, do you want to talk? Specifically, do you want to talk to Portlandia’s director extraordinaire Jonathan Krisel? Of course you do. So fire up “Portlandia” on Friday at 10/9 c and then head over to IFC Sync where Jon will be live chatting with you and all the other fans like you (but slightly less attractive.)

As you know, Jonathan co-developed, co-exec produced, co-wrote, and directed the pilot of “Portlandia” and then, when the show got picked up he directed the whole series. And, much like Alfred Hitchcock, the eagle-eyed viewer can spot the director making cameos in many episodes.

Before he worked at “Portlandia”, Jonathan was director and co-exec producer of the “Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!” He also edited, animated and worked on the writing staff. He also makes awesome shorts for, such as “Rich Dicks” and “Ed Hardy Boyz” with comedian Nick Kroll (posted below in all its awesome entirety). “Rich Dicks” went on to be developed as a comedy Central pilot. Jonathan also co-directed, co-exec produced and edited on the AdultSwim spin off “Check it Out with Steve Brule” starring John C. Reilly. Jonathan then joined the staff of “Saturday Night Live” where he directed many digital shorts such as “The Curse” starring Jon Hamm, and “Zach Drops By The Set” starring Zach Galifianakis and, of course, met Fred Armisen.

Got questions for the director? Tune in to “Portlandia” and then come to IFC Sync on Friday at 10/9c and ask him yourself. Then come back on 3/1 when Portlandia’s Mayor, Kyle MacLachlan, will be joining IFC Sync and chatting live with fans.

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.
