Perhaps best known for his time as a star of Saturday Night Live or Portlandia Fred Armisen is an incredibly complex actor, comedian, voice actor, screenwriter, singer, and musician. Now as he blends all of these talents together he is set to bring his spectacular show to Sydney this week.
Armisen began his career as a musician in the Chicago based posed punk band Trenchmouth as well as the Blue Man Group. His transition to comedy came with the 1998 underground short film Fred Armisen’s Guide To Music And South By Southwest which followed him through the Austin, Texas South by Southwest musical festival posing as a journalist. From there Armisen co-created and co-starred in the Emmy nominated sketch comedy series Portlandia, before then shifting to acting in films and television shows such as Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, Eurotrip 30 Rock, Modern Family, and Parks & Recreation.
Comedy For Musicians But Everyone Is Welcome will see Armisen return to his comedy roots as he tickles the funny underbelly of the music world.
