Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, better known by first name only, are the radical comedy duo that speaks directly to the sensibilities of an entire generation of fans, while the generation before it struggles to understand just what the hell is so funny. It can be fun to observe parents and their kids when they watch an episode of Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! The younger ones laugh their heads off, while the older viewers squint their eyes and wrinkle their noses, puzzled by joke after joke.
Now just imagine that same group of people watching them live on a stage where they don't have the loosely defined morals of a cable network censor showing them the line they can't cross.
The Majestic Theatre announced that Tim and Eric, who practically earned Adult Swim its status as a raging powerhouse of weirdness, are launching a Fall tour that includes a stop in Dallas on Thursday, Sept. 18. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at AXS.com. Plus, the duo's good friend John C. Reilly, aka Check It Out! host Dr. Steve Brule, will also join them on the stage to give us all important tips on how to live our lives and add confusion to the faces of older viewers who are there because their little one has to be accompanied by an adult.
The press release doesn't announce what they have in store for the tour but it's always best not to try and explain Tim and Eric's comedy for someone who hasn't seen it. You might, however, at least warn them about "Shrim" ahead of time, especially if you're planning a meal after the show.
