Anyone that watches Saturday Night Live is very familiar with the comedic genius that is Fred Armisen. His spot-on impersonation of pop star Prince has become somewhat of an SNL trademark for him and has added to Armisen's popularity. He has also appeared in many major films and even added his voice to a few episodes of the hilarious Crank Yankers TV show.
We are thrilled to have had the opportunity to interview Mr. Armisen and hope you enjoy it. It takes a special comedian to be able to answer each question thrown his way with exactly two words, but Fred Armisen did it with a tongue-in-cheek humor that we love here at WickedInfo.
