Since debuting on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim with Tom Goes to the Mayor, the comedic partnership of Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim has cultivated a devoted following that has only grown with subsequent programs like Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, and Tim & Eric’s Bedtime Stories. Whether peddling the brazenly hazardous products of the Cinco Corporation, satirizing celebrity fixations, or seeking inept therapy from the woefully unqualified Dr. Steven Brule (memorably portrayed by John C. Reilly), Tim and Eric have forged a career from irreverent humor that subverts the expectations of easy punchlines for more insightful and outlandish material. This approach is particularly evident during their live performances, as the duo delights in misdirecting audiences with standard sketch setups before flinging the act into the realm of the surreal. Onstage, the pair is prone to interacting with the audience, a tendency that often means selecting participants for gags, games, and improvisational riffs. This latest appearance, denoting their 10th Anniversary Awesome Tour, promises a celebration of the aberrant hysterics that define these two comically twisted minds.
