Fred Armisen has a new relationship…
The53-year-old half-Venezuelan Emmy-nominated actor/comedian and former Saturday Night Live cast member will take part in Audible’’s new mockumentary The Special Relationship.
Hailing from Alex Owen and Ben Ashenden, theUK comedy duo known as The Pin, the series will follow two misguided British sketch comedians attempting to ‘make it’ in America with satirical nods to a post-Brexit Britain trying to ‘go it alone’.
The mockumentary will feature a mix of live sketches and ‘documentary footage.’
In addition to Armisen, performers set to take part in the project include Cecily Strong, Jamie Demetriou, John Reynolds, Kate Berlant, Lolly Adefope, Sally Phillips, Janine Harouni and Charly Clive.
Owen and Ashenden’s are best known for their work on BBC Radio 4 and acclaimed live shows.
The Audible pod series is set to launch at the beginning of August.
In addition to SNL, Armisen s the co-creator and co-star of the IFC sketch comedy series Portlandia. He is also the bandleader and frequent drummer for the Late Night with Seth Meyers house band, The 8G Band.
