Here's a Sneak Peek of Friday's 'The Birthday Boys' Featuring Tim and Eric

The Birthday Boys is back with a brand new episode this Friday at 11:30pm, and IFC just released a sneak peek from the episode starring Mike Hanford as a man who discovers he's really good at playing piano with some jazzy saxophone backup from equally lucky talents Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim.

Adult Swim released a new trailer for Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim's new show Tim & Eric's Bedtime Stories today that's filled with some great guest stars like Zach Galifianakis, Bob Odenkirk, John C. Reilly, Jason Schwartzman, and Laurie Metcalf, to name a few. "The idea basically is it's our version of The Twilight Zone, where it's just a different story every episode, basically, from the minds of Tim & Eric," Heidecker told us last year. "Funny but dark. Exploring different genres and different tropes." Bedtime Stories premieres Thursday, September 18th at 12:15am.

Tim & Eric Meet Their Fans At The Corner Of Awkward And Cringe-Worthy

Tim and Eric are the anti-establishment punks of the comedy world. They don’t care about wacky premises, the rule of three, or even the time-honored pattern of setup -> joke -> punchline. No, these two have their own comedic agenda. If you’ve never seen their act before, there’s an infamous Absolut Vodka ad they made with Zach Galifinakis that could effectively serve as their manifesto. The story goes that they were given full creative control over the ad, the only caveat being that they had to mention the product. This is what they made.

Interested in some Absolut Vodka now? More importantly (because it clearly was to [...]

Tim and Eric Made a Totino's Pizza Roll Commercial That's Hardcore Punk Rock

Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim have been on a roll in the advertising world lately. Back in September they directed a commercial for a GE lightbulb starring a hot tub-lounging Jeff Goldblum, and now they're back with a new ad for Totino's Pizza Rolls that's bizarre enough to make you switch from Gino's Pizza Rolls out of curiosity alone.

Tim Heidecker Surprises Eric Wareheim on 'The Tonight Show'

Eric Wareheim's biggest dream ever was to be on The Tonight Show, so when he and Tim Heidecker were chosen to be guests on last night's show, Heidecker turned it into an elaborate surprise for his best friend complete with a blindfold, noise-canceling headphones, and misleading music from The Roots.

Watch the Debut Episode of Tim Heidecker's YouTube Cooking Show

Here's the first episode of Tim Heidecker's YouTube cooking show, Tim's Kitchen Tips, with guest Eric Wareheim. You'd barely know it was sponsored by Pitzman's Mustard.

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 [...]

Jeff Goldblum Stars in the Best Lightbulb Infomercial Ever Directed by Tim and Eric

It's not often that a mega corporation like GE can pull off an ad that's funnier than it is shameless, but this new spot directed by Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim has got to be the most worthwhile lightbulb commercial ever made. It stars Jeff Goldblum as super successful and well-lit celebrity Terry Quattro, and if the thought of Goldblum playing the piano from the comfort of his hot tub excites you, the above spot will not let you down.

Tim Heidecker Says 'Tim and Eric's Bedtime Stories' Is a Reflection of Our "Shit Culture"

"Once we started making the show, and we saw what we were actually doing, I sort of thought, Well, this show is not going to make you feel good. And we shouldn’t be feeling good! We’re shit people. We’re a shit culture. This is like punishment for being horrible. There’s so much feel-good stuff that comes out, especially in comedy now, where things are very cute and very clever and sort of like everybody’s in on the joke and winking. I feel like our show tends to try to be like a little more reminding of how awful things really are in the world."

This Week In Web Videos: 'Esther with Hot Chicks'

Esther Povitsky doesn’t give a fuck, and that’s why I think she’ll be very famous. Let me explain. You see fame, at least as I see it, so often tends to lie just beyond the grasp of even the most talented people if those people fall prey to charting their upward progress like an investment analyst. Making it BIG requires constant attention and work, of course, but it also takes a person able to create a marketable body of work while remaining true to their art—the thing that got eyeballs on them in the first place. That means being able to say “no” to offers you’re uncomfortable with [...]
