Fred Talkin' Tennis

Watch Fred Armisen Talk Tennis in 7 Days in Hell Trailer


Posted by on

One tennis match. Two bad-boy competitors. Seven days. This is hell. A new trailer for the upcoming HBO special 7 Days in Hell dives into this spoof documentary on a long-as-hell tennis match between Jon Snow and Andy Samberg. The fictional match ran for seven days — as the title suggests — and seemed like it would never end. With such a nail-biting moment, HBO had to bring in an exemplary crop of characters for discussion, and among them is the likes of Will Forte, Serena Williams and, of course, Portlandia‘s Fred Armisen.

Watch the 7 Days in Hell trailer below.

Samberg plays Aaron Williams, otherwise known as the bad boy of tennis. He grew up in an African-American household and was raised to become a tennis champion. “It was a reverse Blind Side,” Williams said. Then there’s Charles Poole, played by Kit Harington. See, kids, there is life after Game of Thrones. If you can believe it, an Englishman hadn’t won Wimbledon since 1937. As such, this guy is feeling a tremendous amount of pressure. Who will win out? It’s hard to say. Both have incredible skills with the racket, but both are also equally intellectually inept. As Poole says, he doesn’t know what strategy means. No, seriously! He doesn’t know the definition of the word.

And look who we have here. It’s Fred Armisen!



You’re not gonna have a gathering of the country’s premiere comedic talents and not include this funny man. 7 Days in Hell premieres on HBO July 11th and features a cast that also includes Mary Steenburgen, John McEnroe, Lena Dunham, Howie Mandel, Chris Evert and David Copperfield. There’s also Oscar-nominee June Squibb who, if you ask me, has the best role in the entire thing: a middle-finger-flipping Queen of England!

Lord help the one who gets between the Queen and her tennis.

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.

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.
