If you’ve ever been to Portland, Oregon, you know it’s a bit weird. Seminal sketch comedy series Portlandia set out to effectively parody this bizarre city, and succeeded in spades. Created and written by Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, Portlandia is a collection of sketches that centers on different characters (usually played by Armisen and Brownstein) living within a fictional Portland. Alongside Armisen and Brownstein are a large cast of supporting and guest stars from both the comedy and indie music world, which only heightens the surreal comedy. Armisen was already known for his comedic chops because of his stint on SNL, but Brownstein showed a remarkable range for comedy throughout the eight seasons of Portlandia, effectively holding her own against Armisen. Portlandia remains one of the best sketch comedy shows of the past decade.
