You know Kristen Wiig from Bridesmaids and Saturday Night Live, but did you know that she also has a license to kill (or at least a license to hold her favorite band hostage in Portland)? Wiig teamed up with her SNL co-star Fred Armisen for a sketch on his hipster send-up show, Portlandia, airing Friday on IFC.
If you can't get enough of Toni and Candice, the feminist bookstore owners, then tonight is your night. Season two of Portlandia, starring Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, premieres Friday on IFC, kicking off a season that will see the return of favorite characters as well as some brand new hipster-skewering sketches — all set in The City of Roses.
Portlandia, the sketch-comedy brainchild of Saturday Night Live's Fred Armisen with former Sleater-Kinney guitarist Carrie Brownstein, has the distinction of being one of the sleeper hits of the year, and it has already garnered a cult following.
