Kumail Nanjiani Investigates the Real Portlandia in His ‘Portlandia’ Web Series

Here’s the debut episode of Kumail Tours Portlandia, a new Portlandia web series starring amazingly-funny comedian and Portlandia regular Kumail Nanjiani, in which he walks around Portland, Oregon, trying to find real people and things similar to those on the show. In the first installment, he visits a feminist book store called “In Other Words” that was the partial inspiration for Portlandia‘s “Women & Women First.” Future episodes will see Nanjiani visiting a chicken retirement home, the Portland Steampunk Society, and a vegan strip club. It should be pretty tough to find the real mayor of Portland’s secret reggae band, though.
