Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim are enfants terribles whose rhythm, aesthetic and sensibilities have informed everything from cinema to sketch comedy and deodorant advertising in the years since Tom Goes to the Mayor debuted on Adult Swim nearly a decade ago. Gallows humor abounds in the pair’s Bedtime Stories, a hilariously macabre horror-comedy anthology in the vein of the Twilight Zone, which makes its Adult Swim debut on September 18. The show is a huge step forward for the two, who’ve mounted their second national live tour in preparation for the premiere. “If you haven’t experienced the comedic force behind Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! and Tim and Eric’s Bedtime Stories in person, well, you’ve obviously missed out on some key moments in history, but we’ll let that slide for now,” says publicist Jessica Linker.
What sets this tour apart from its predecessor is the inclusion of Dr. Steve Brule on the lineup. Played by character actor John C. Reilly, who relishes each awkward syllable in the role of a profoundly unsettling physician who dispenses dubious advice, Brule first appeared on interstitial segments on Awesome Show and then spun off into his own series, Check It Out! “This power trio has put together a show of a lifetime for you and your pep-pep, and they’re venturing to pretty much every major city in North America,” Linker says. “No excuses this time, ya danguses!”
Doors open at 7 p.m. tonight for the 8 p.m. show. at the Paramount Theatre, 1621 Glenarm Place. Tickets start at $37.50 and include downtown parking; get yours at altitudetickets.com.
