Fred Armisen Won’t Take Any Crap From Kings of Leon

The SNL/Portlandia star is directing the Southern rockers’ new concert video, and he’s not going easy on them.

Sure, we’re pretty bummed that the hilariously weird Fred Armisenis leaving SNL. Fortunately, not only will we still get to see him on Portlandia, but he also seems to have a new gig: concert director! Yes, the music-loving comedian will be directing a concert in London by Southern rockers Kings of Leonthat will be broadcast live online this Friday. But first…he needs to put the boys through their paces. Check out what happens when Fred judges the band on a variety of necessary rock-star skills, including “The Walk On,” “Most Vacant Stare,” “Best Small Talk,” and “Eating Food.”

To watch Kings Of Leon perform live from London, tune in here at 4pm ET/1pm PT on August 9th.

Check out Mumford & Sons’ “Hopeless Wanderer” and Kings of Leon’s “Supersoaker.”
