Fred Armisen

Comedian-musician Fred Armisen had a huge reason to celebrate Barack Obama's 2008 presidential win. After appearing on "Saturday Night Live" (NBC, 1975- ) for seven seasons, the actor's spot-on impersonation of the 44th U.S. President ultimately became his breakout role. He soon found more success as half of the driving force of the comedy series "Portlandia" (IFC 2011-18), but sketch comedy is not Armisen's only passion. He was also an accomplished drummer and guitarist (serving as the part-time bandleader of the 8G Band on "Late Night With Seth Meyers" (NBC 2014- ) as well as an actor who contributed to such big-screen comedies as "The Little Hours" (2017) and "Band Aid" (2017), as well as TV series including the deadpan parody "Documentary Now!" (IFC 2015- ), making him an incredibly versatile performer.
