Comedy Duo Tim and Eric Star in the Trailer for ‘The Comedy’, a Drama about Comedy
Here’s the new trailer for The Comedy, which, despite its title (and the fact that it stars Adult Swim duo Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim) is a dramatic film. To make things more confusing, it’s a drama about comedy. The movie stars Heidecker as Williamsburg hipster and explores him and his friends’ love for sarcasm and irony and how hollow their lives are as a result of it. Co-written by its director Rick Alverson, The Comedy stars Wareheim, LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy, and Gregg Turkington (a.k.a Neil Hamburger) as Heidecker’s friends. The movie will be released on VOD and iTunes on October 24th and in limited release in theaters on November 9th, and, I’m assuming, upon seeing the movie, things get a whole lot less confusing.
