Portlandia’s Getting a Book


We need more funny books about TV towns. Oh! Here comes one about Portlandia, perfect. "The guide will be written like a traditional travel book, but instead of recommending a reasonably priced diner in Oaxaca, it will lead readers through the Portlandia’s landmarks, restaurants, and, undoubtedly, book stores," IFC writes before reminding everyone about the ridiculously hilarious "Did You Read?" sketch. Go watch it however many times you need to till Portlandia: A Guide for Visitors drops November 20. And watch out — with a live tour and a real live book, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein's comedy juggernaut is one thingy away from being a media empire.
