Portlandia‘s second season on IFC is fast approaching, comedy nerds. In fact, we’re just eight days away from the bizarrely funny sketch show’s Jan. 6 premiere (10 pm ET)! So, to further whet your appetite for the second coming of Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein and co., please accept this 24-minute, behind-the-scenes look at the new season of Portlandia. You can thank the fine folks at IFC for putting it together. More specifically, you should thank celebrated documentarian and music video director Lance Bangs, because he’s the real force behind this thing. And because it’s Bangs (dude has brought us videos by Sonic Youth, Nirvana, Green Day and a zillion others) this is not just a look at season two of Portlandia; this is a super-thorough history of Fred and Carrie’s friendship and careers. Check it out. You will not be disappointed!
