Fred Armisen is an American actor, comedian and musician best known for his work as a cast member on Saturday Night Live, and portraying off-color foreigners in various comedy films such as EuroTrip, Anchorman, and Cop Out. With Carrie Brownstein, he is the co-creator and co-star of the IFC sketch series Portlandia.

Armisen was born in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, and moved to Manhattan, New York City as a baby. He was raised in Valley Stream, New York, on Long Island. His mother is Venezuelan and his father is of German and Japanese descent. He attended the School of Visual Arts (NYC) before dropping out to begin a career as a rock drummer.

Armisen was married to English singer and songwriter Sally Timms from 1998 to 2004.

Armisen became engaged to actress Elisabeth Moss in January 2009. The two had met in October 2008 when Moss' fellow Mad Men star Jon Hamm hosted Saturday Night Live, and Moss joined Hamm in onstage sketches. The couple married on October 25, 2009 in Long Island City, New York. On August 13, 2010, the trade press reported that Moss and Armisen had separated earlier that year. Moss filed for divorce from Armisen on September 20, 2010; the court papers specified June 26, 2010 as the date of separation, making the marriage eight months long.
