The SF Sketchfest Tribute to Portlandia


SF Sketchfest is delighted to honor IFC’s groundbreaking hit comedy show Portlandia and its creators Fred Armisen, Carrie Brownstein and Jonathan Krisel with an in-person conversation, a selection of hilarious clips, and a lively audience Q & A to celebrate the Emmy-nominated and Peabody Award-winning series, which kicks off its third season in January with Armisen and Brownstein again starring as a variety of wonderfully eccentric characters that inhabit their dreamy rendering of Portland, Oregon. From its first season debut in 2011, the show– which is shot entirely on location in Portland, Oregon– quickly developed a devoted following by critics and fans alike, who fell in love with Armisen and Brownstein’s creations of cherished recurring characters such as the uptight Dave and Kath, passionate lovers Nina and Lance, and hipsters Spyke and Iris, along with a bevy of guest stars including Kyle MacLachlan, Jeff Goldblum, and Kumail Nanjiani.
