Hailing from Mississippi, Fred Armisen is an actor, comedian and author who is best-known for his work with Carrie Brownstein in Portlandia. While honing his performance style and developing several recurring characters on Saturday Night Live from 2002 to 2013, he met Brownstein and the two artists began a collaborative partnership under the name ThunderAnt. What began as a series of comedy sketches quickly evolved into the television series Portlandia in 2011. With a brand of comedy that pokes fun at the Portland-centric culture of twee arts projects and and volatile foodies, the show has resonated powerfully with modern audiences and earned both Armisen and Brownstein critical acclaim.
