Fred Armisen Reveals the Humble Origin of PortlandiaS

It's no secret that Gawker.TV is thrilled to see the multi-talented Fred Armisen get the chance to explore the frontiers of comedy on IFC, and this promo tour for Portlandia has made the unapologetic Apple fanboy seem even more lovable.

For those of you who are only familiar with Fred from SNL and Portlandia, you can see some of his early character work as Fericito in the Wilco documentary I Am Trying To Break Your Heart, which is on Netflix instant. And, if you happen to be a musician, it is imperative that you get a hold of Fred Armisen presents Jens Hannemann: "COMPLICATED DRUMMING TECHNIQUE," as referenced in this interview. It's a note-perfect homage to/parody of those hundreds of super-serious instructional videos available in every musical instrument emporium.
