Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein and director Jonathan Krisel are the heart of “Portlandia,” but it’s not just their smiling faces, quick wit, and skills behind the camera that keep fans clamoring for one more episode of the sketch comedy show. Part of the show’s allure is the incredible guest stars they entice into taking a trip to the wonderfully weird, wacky and all too true world of “Portlandia.”
We got Fred, Carrie, and Jon to talk about working with the musical guests in an earlier video, including what it’s like to work withEddie Vedder and Joanna Newsom. In this look behind the scenes of “Portlandia,” Fred, Carrie, and Jon talk about working with an incredible group of guest stars like Kyle Maclachlan, Amber Tamblyn, Jeff Goldblum, Kristen Wiig, and Andy Samberg, and how to keep a straight face when Kumail Nanjiani is asking if you want to put a lobster on top of your meal.
“Portlandia” airs on IFC on Fridays at 10/9c
