Ask any of my friends – I cannot survive long without a fix of awkward comedy. And when I don’t get it from TV everyone is worse off, because I go out into the world and create it on my own. This means anything from the casual out-of-place remark to the more dangerous, like insisting on paying a 7-11 cashier with Old Navy Cash. Luckily, the world has been spared of these shenanigans recently, as Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein are filling the void for me with the sketch – format comedy Portlandia. They touch on everything from old lesbian couples to dumpster divers. My favorite sketches involve a couple in which Armisen plays the female role and Brownstein the male… creepy and hilarious.
