Aziz Ansari, Jason Woliner, and Eric Wareheim Present 'Food Club'

Here's a new video from JASH of a food and culture show called "Food Club" that was created by and stars Aziz Ansari, Eric Wareheim, and Jason Woliner, with Parks and Rec writer Alan Yang as Swab Yang.

Ansari, Wareheim, and Woliner started their Food Club years ago, before this video, as Ansari told The AV Club in 2010:

Talking to Tim Heidecker About 'Tim & Eric's Bedtime Stories' and Future Projects

It's been three years since comedy duo Tim & Eric's last TV show, Tim and Eric's Awesome Show Great Job!, ended its run, but they're back tomorrow night with the pilot for their new Adult Swim series, Tim & Eric's Bedtime Stories. It's a Twilight Zone-esque anthology series, with the first episode involving Tim, Eric, and guest star Zach Galifianakis living in a haunted house to receive their grandfather's inheritance.

Bedtime Stories is just one of many projects Tim Heidecker has in the works. He's also releasing a soft-rock album with his band Heidecker & Wood, playing a recurring role on the current season of Eastbound & Down, [...]

Since it's open letter season, comedy duo Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim both recently wrote open letters back and forth to each other. Check out Tim's letter here, and Eric's here.

9 Funny People Who Direct Great Music Videos

Quick history lesson: if a music video was funny in the 1980s, it was probably completely unintentional. In the first half of the decade, the ridiculously low production values provided all of the humor, and in the second half, it was the unabashed bombastic elements that made you laugh. Weird Al, the Beastie Boys and their pie throwing antics, and weirdly enough Phil Collins' meta work were some exceptions to that, and helped lighten up the art form in the nineties, when directors like Spike Jonze presented artists in innovative and fun ways. In the mid-nineties comedic actors began to be cast in videos1, notably in [...]

Mitch Hurwitz, Tim & Eric to Guest Star on 'Community'

The upcoming season of Community is already set to have plenty of cast changes, and now the show has announced even more big name stars will be seen in the fifth season. Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz, as well as Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, will guest star on the new season, which debuts in January. According to The Wrap, Hurwitz's character, Preston Koogler, is "Greendale’s ultimate party animal.

Talking to Eric Wareheim About JASH and 'Tim & Eric's Bedtime Stories'

Tim and Eric’s new YouTube channel JASH may not have the same amazing ring to it as Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, but fans of the TV show will be happy to know JASH has a lot of the same sensibilities.

And it would be one thing if JASH was exclusively a venture between Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, but the channel has comedic heavyweights Reggie Watts, Sarah Silverman, and Michael Cera as partners as well.

Together, they're producing short films, music videos, web series, and other projects for JASH, which Wareheim describes as a “place of good.” Since Tim and Eric went off Adult Swim three [...]
