IFC’s Portlandia goes tailgating…for Prairie Home Companion

Portland, Ore., is so close to Seattle, and yet Portlandia is so far away from football.

So, obviously, the IFC sketch comedy series starring Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein isn’t tailgating for the Super Bowl. But Prairie Home Companion? Now there’s something these two characters can get behind, and party in advance of, as is the case of this new webseries that helps you get in the mood for the fourth season of Portlandia on IFC.

Behold, Malcolm and Kris, preparing their Portlandia neighbors for a live broadcast of their favorite NPR radio variety show, “Prairie Home Companion.” When I say GARRISON, you say KEILLOR!

The new season of Portlandia premieres Thursday, Feb. 27, 2014, at 10pm ET/PT. Guest stars this season include Olivia Wilde, Kirsten Dunst, Maya Rudolph, Jeff Goldblum, Jason Sudeikis and Steve Buscemi.
