On last week’s This American Life, Fred Armisen co-hosted with and as Fred Armisen. The first five minutes are totally worth it:
Fred Armisen worked up an imitation of Ira and put it into a skit 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.
