484: Doppelgängers

Jan 11, 2013
We got a tip about a meat plant selling pig intestines as fake calamari, wondered if it could be true, and decided to investigate. Doppelgängers, doubles, evil twins and not-so-evil twins, this week. Fred Armisen co-hosts with Ira Glass.

EXTRAS: Fred's Ira impression on SNL. Pig/squid shirts. And prints.
Fred Armisen imitates Ira Glass on an un-aired Saturday Night Live segment.



You can get a t-shirt or print of Steve Dressler's illustration in our store.

  • Fred Armisen worked up an imitation of Ira and put it into a sketch on Saturday Night Live a couple years ago. But when they rehearsed it with an audience, there was not a roar of recognition; it seemed like Ira might not be famous enough to be mocked on network TV. So today Armisen finally gets a go as Ira’s doppelgänger in our studios by co-hosting the entire show. Fred's show Portlandia returns for its fourth season in February. (4 ½ minutes) Funny
