'Portlandia' tailgates outside live 'Prairie Home Companion' show

Every football fan knows how much fun tailgating outside a game can be. But NPR fans get into tailgating, too.

In the latest teaser to upcoming fourth season of "Portlandia," Portland residents Malcolm (Fred Armisen) and Kris (Carrie Brownstein) party football game-style before a concert verion of their favorite NPR show, "Prairie Home Companion."

"When I say 'Garrison,' you 'Keillor!'" Kris shouts before passing around the teapot.

Just in time for the Super Bowl, the preview kicks off the new "Portlandia" web series, "Prairie Home Companion Tailgating," which you can watch at IFC.com. The four-part web series follows Malcolm and Kris' tailgating extravaganza and is the first "Portlandia" sketch to ever continue online. They're all hilarious; visit the site and watch them.

Guest stars in Season 4 include Olivia Wilde, Kirsten Dunst, Maya Rudolph, Jeff Goldblum, Jason Sudeikis, Steve Buscemi and many others. The new season premieres at 9 p.m. Feb. 27 on IFC.
