Please join KLRU’s Overheard with Evan Smith for an interview with Fred Armisen
Comedian, writer and musician Fred Armisen is perhaps best known for his role on Saturday Night Live, now performing in his ninth season. He famously played then-Senator Barack Obama during the 2008 presidential campaign. Armisen also stars in, and writes, Portlandia, a show he created on IFC with co-star Carrie Brownstein. Armisen began his career as a musician in Chicago-based punk band Trenchmouth. He added comedy to his resume in 1998, posing as a music journalist in the underground short film “Fred Armisen’s Guide to Music and SXSW.” Armisen is in town for SXSW Comedy.
We hope you’ll be there as Overheard with Evan Smith continues its third season of great conversation with fascinating people, always on the news and always with a sense of humor. The show features in-depth interviews with a mix of guests from politics, the arts, literature, journalism, business, sports and more, and reaches PBS viewers from California to Florida. We’d love to see you in the studio for the interview, and for a chance to join the audience Q&A after the interview.
