Due to an overwhelming response, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein from IFC's hit original comedy Portlandia have just added a third week to their sold out live tour hitting six new cities. Portlandia Season 2 premiered last Friday and is one of the most talked about series of the New Year with Salon calling it the "smartest sketch comedy show on TV."
Portlandia: The Tour features Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, the co-creators, writers and stars of Portlandia, bringing their romanticized and dreamy rendering of Portland, OR to life. They perform live music, present special clips from the show's second season, share personal anecdotes about the creation and inspiration of Portlandia and even bring along surprise special guests in each market.
Portlandia: The Tour is presented by IFC and Broadway Video in support of Portlandia Season 2 which airs Fridays at 10pm ET/PT on IFC. Check out 2 Tour clips, 4 new show clips, a behind-the-scenes clip, and the Portlandia: The Tour poster, with additional venue dates below.
