For Your Health: Tim and Eric On Their Billion Dollar Movie

by |

Summary

Even in the seen-it-all world of modern comedy, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim's brand of humor stands apart as odd -- and quite unlike anything else out there. Since its debut in 2007, Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! has cultivated an army of fans (and famous comedy friends) drawn to the duo's nightmare landscape of TV surrealism, a carnival of comedy non-sequiturs and awkward freeze frames where all entertainment seems to have paused on loop in an alternate 1992. This week, they unleash Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie , in which Wareheim and Heidecker squander a billion dollars of studio money on three minutes of unusable footage and so -- obviously -- set out to transform a desolate suburban mall, where the last 30 years of consumer culture has gone en route to the abyss. We sat down with Tim and Eric recently for a chat about the film.Back to Article
