In Season Five of Portlandia, we learned that Candace wasn’t always the ball of fury we know, love, and are slightly scared of. Back in 1991, she was a big-haired, shoulder-pad-wearing hotshot in New York’s fast-paced publishing world angling for a shot at overseeing company’s Chick Lit Department. The only thing between her and the dream job is Toni. But when the competition turned out to be a farce generated by her male colleagues, Candace walked away with a man-shaped chip on her shoulder and a slight anger-management problem. Miss that episode? Watch it now.
She still has the occasional freak-out in the safe space of Women & Women First. Now we’ve collected them into a video and if you don’t watch, Candace will chase you down and scratch the back of your neck so hard.
