Watch Fred Armisen and ?uestlove Drum Duel on Fallon
Competing with The Roots’ ?uestlove at drumming seems like a fool’s wager, with the only exception being if you are also a professional drummer. Luckily for Portlandia’s Fred Armisen, his resume includes a stretch as drummer for Chicago post-hardcore outfit Trenchmouth during the ’90s.
The result is that a drum duel between the two wasn’t a ?uestlove massacre, and didn’t even see ?uesty take it too easy on the comedian. Armisen actually stood his ground, but it’s hard to not give the victory to the unquestionably great ?uestlove.
Judge for yourself which of these celebrities provided service and which was just served in the video from last night’s show below.
