Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim return to Adult Swim, writing, directing and starring in Tim and Eric's Bedtime Stories, an anthology series in the tradition of The Twilight Zone. Each episode offers a unique tale: dark, horrifying, perverse, insane...hilarious, featuring a wide array of comedic and dramatic guest stars. High production value replaces Awesome Show era cable access low-fi, but there'll be no question whose minds are behind Tim and Eric's Bedtime Stories.
Things kick off tonight with the debut episode Hole. To celebrate the premiere on Adult Swim, we caught up with the masterminds behind this new endeavor, which is one of Fall 2014's best and most exciting new series.Read More
On Cinema at the Cinema has returned with an all-new episode. This week, host Tim Heidecker and his special guest Gregg Turkington (aka Neil Hamburger) take a look at the comedy 21 & Over and Jack the Giant Slayer. Gregg also has some kind words for My Giant, the comedy classic starring Billy Crystal and NBA legend Gheorghe Muresan.Read More
Neil Hamburger is actually Gregg Turkington, a swell, very funny guy who recently stepped outside of his on-stage alter-ego to play an aging hipster in the small indie drama The Comedy. Once again refusing the dirty tux and awful comb over, the man is now joining his former co-star and Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! collaborator Tim Heidecker for a new movie review show called On Cinema at the Cinema. If you enjoy either of their sense of humors, you'll dig this webseries, which is not an act, but actually the genuine working relationship between these sometimes bitter comedic masterminds. They are not highbrow critics, and their rapport is quite entertaining for anyone tired of the same old movie critic scene. We have their latest episode, where they take on A Good Day to Die Hard and Escape from Planet Earth. Their thoughts on both films are not what you might expect.
Escape from Planet Earth was released February 15th, 2013.Read More
Look deep into the eyes of Tim Heidecker during certain unhinged moments in this year's earlier release Tim and Eric'$ Billion Dollar Movie, and you will see true demons rising to the surface. He is bitter. Angry. A man fighting against the world. And that's where some of his best comedic moments come from. Taken out of context, its not hard to see a man devoted to the craft of acting. He has a humanistic skill set that escapes even the most gifted of performers. It's a needed tool when delivering something as obscure and twisted as Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! It's a true belief in the material that enables this particular comedian to sell it home.
Now, Tim Heidecker brings those same instincts to The Comedy. Despite its title, the movie only wades through a shallow pool of uncomfortable laughs before quickly descending into the madness of a tortured soul. It's more of a psychological horror movie than it is a straight forward drama. You will watch some scenes on the edge of your seat, fearful of the anticipated moment that you know is coming. Tim Heidecker has the ability to break your heart in strange and unexpected ways. He gets under the skin, crawls around for a good bit, and then works at ripping apart your spin so thoroughly, there's no way you'll be able to stand straight after murking through this shadow boxing match replete with all the nonconformist terror one could hope for in a so-called "comedy".Read More
Tribeca Film has released the first trailer and poster for The Comedy, director Rick Alverson's character study starring Tim Heidecker. The story centers on Swanson (Tim Heidecker), a man who begins to test society's behavioral constraints just before he inherits his father's estate. Take a look at the one-sheet and the first video, also featuring Eric Wareheim and Neil Hamburger.
On the cusp of inheriting his father's estate, Swanson (Tim Heidecker, Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!) is a man with unlimited options. An aging hipster in Brooklyn, he spends his days in aimless recreation with like-minded friends (Tim and Eric co-star Eric Wareheim, LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy and comedian Gregg Turkington a.k.a. Neil Hamburger) in games of comic irreverence and mock sincerity. As Swanson grows restless of the safety a sheltered life offers him, he tests the limits of acceptable behavior, pushing the envelope in every way he can. Heidecker's deadpan delivery cleverly masks a deep desire for connection and sense in the modern world. The Comedy wears its name on its sleeve, but director Rick Alverson's powerful and provocative character study touches a darkness behind the humor that resonates with viewers long after the story ends.Read More
