The hilarious sketch comedy show Portlandia on IFC, starring Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, is all about making fun of hipsters, but there’s a running current of geek humor in the hipster-riffing waters. I guess wearing dark, horn-rimmed glasses can mean a lot of things these days. Here are 5 nerdy sketches from Portlandia:


Nerd PSA

True story – there actually is a Portland Nerd Council (sort of).


Technology Loop

Mind-Fi: The Future Is Terrible


Harajuku Girls

I think these girls need more coffee.


Did You Read?

See kids, this is why you shouldn’t get addicted to reading.


Battlestar Galactica

Eventually, they find out they’re Cylons.
