Harper Simon: Did you start Portlandia to get in Carrie Brownstein’s pants?

Fred Armisen: Yeah! I mean, if you think about it, it’s like…you can over complicate it and go, oh well, you know, we had this intellectual connection and all this stuff like that. But come on. Look at her. She’s a cutie.  […] Did I succeed? No, but I got a show out of it.

The Portland Mercury and Action/Adventure Present:
Late Night Action w/ Alex Falcone - Season 5 Debut!
Monday, September 29 at 8:00pm, 21+
at Mississippi Studios

LNA is Portland’s best live talk show and this season is going to be bigger than ever. We’ve moved to an incredible new venue, Mississippi Studios, and that’s just the beginning. We’ve got bigger guests, bigger bands, videos, shenanigans, guest appearances, and surprises that will knock your socks off*.

For our season 5 debut we have an awesome lineup. Hutch Harris from the Thermals, writer of fine comics like Pretty Deadly and Captain Marvel Kelly Sue DeConnick, Portland’s funniest person Steven Wilber, musical guest Siren & The Sea, and special guest appearance from the cast of the sketch show Bath Night. Plus all your favorite Late Night Action cast members. It’s going to be an excellent show. Buy your tickets now.

Late Night Action is a live talk show like The Tonight Show but focused on the people who make Portland awesome. It’s hosted by the quick and funny Alex Falcone (Portlandia, Live Wire! Radio) and wise-crackin’ side kick Bri Pruett (Willamette Week’s Funniest 5) and directed by Caitlin Kunkel (Second City).

*This is a metaphor. Keep your socks on, smelly.

The UFO of Collins Beach - Along the treeline of Collins Beach on Sauvie Island just outside of Portland, Oregon, sits a mysterious and legendary vessel that hasn’t seen action in many years.  Here it lies tethered by cable to a nearby tree becoming fodder for local graffiti artists.
