Progressivism is an important part of what defines Brown — just ask HerCampus — but it’s also incredibly easy to parody. Portlandia, the Peabody Award-winning sketch comedy series on the IFC Channel (individual skits are also on Youtube), mocks similar themes by honing in on the notoriously hippie/hipster (crunchy?) city of Portland, Oregon.
Longtime fans of the series or merely those curious about starting to watch, listen up: Fred Armisen — one of the two stars of the show — will be visiting Providence on March 12th for an advance screening of Portlandia‘s fourth season. Providence is one of three lucky cities to be chosen for the event (along with Minneapolis and Denver), which will include a question and answer session with Mr. Armisen after the screening.
