'Portlandia': Your first look at a season 4 sketch
Fresh, gluten-free, locally sourced episodes of Portlandia don’t hit the air for another month (IFC, Feb. 27, 10 p.m.), but your first whiff of season 4 is a mere click away. The following sketch, which will be seen in the fourth episode, features the return of middle-aged couple Malcolm (Fred Armisen) and Kris (Carrie Brownstein), who appeared in season 3’s “Fart Patio” and season 2’s “Firepit.” This time, they are tailgating before a Prairie Home Companion show at Rose Quarter, and s#@%’s about to get crazy. Like, spouting-off-about-jug-bands-and-sipping-slightly-illegal-tea crazy. The “Prairie Home Companion Tailgating” bit is also being spun off into a series of four webisodes, which you can also watch below. Warning: Contains a streaker.
Celebrity guests joining Armisen and Brownstein this season include Kirsten Dunst, Maya Rudolph, Olivia Wilde, Vanessa Bayer, k.d. Lang, and Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, while Steve Buscemi, Jason Sudekis, Kyle MacLachlan and Jeff Goldblum are among the returning faces.
