You never know how comedy that gets its start either on TV or in film will translate to a stage show. But then, few shows — and, actually, few comedies — are like the work of Tim and Eric, who bring their live show to Fort Lauderdale’s Revolution on Sunday.
Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim got their start with the Cartoon Network Adult Swim show “Tom Goes To The Mayor”, which starred the duo in the titular roles — Tim as Tom, the hapless dreamer; Eric as the Mayor, who always ended up destroying Tom’s dreams.
This in turn led to the anarchic, psychedelic and altogether unhinged “Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!”, also on Cartoon Network. More of a sketch comedy show, Tim and Eric continued building a huge cult following.
Expect the same kind of off-kilter weirdness with their live show — also featuring Doug Lussenhop as DJ Douggpound and possibly other guests. Fans of the show will likely be thrilled. Or confused. Or thrilled to be confused.
