PORT­LANDIA

Com­edy 9pm, ABC2

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Best On The Box - – RC

Get past the fact co-cre­ator and star Fred Ar­misen looks like a sub­ur­ban Rick Mo­ra­nis and there’s a wealth of laughs to be had here. Un­like most US come­dies, Port­landia is more an ob­scure, ir­rev­er­ent ode to Bri­tish hu­mour (think Green Wing) that is top­i­cal in its dis­sec­tion of the hip­ster life. Singer-song­writer Aimee Mann pops up tonight, although it was Dump­ster Divers Daniel and Meg who had this critic in hys­ter­ics.
