I made a field guide to the recurring characters on Portlandia, and interviewed Fred Armiesn about how he and Carrie Brownstein create them. To be brutally honest, the interview was shit, but I salvaged the good stuff from it, and if you like the show, you’ll enjoy the rundown of all its characters. (There’s lots of recurring characters.)
This week on The Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show my guests are Amanda Needham and Tyler Robertson, two Portland-based artists who create the costumes, sets and props for IFC’s Portlandia.
Even if you don’t always consciously notice it, Tyler and Amanda’s art helps separate Portlandia from other sketch shows. In this episode they reveal where those clothes from, the most challenging props in the history of Portlandia, and which sets are real Portland locations you can visit.
