Fun Thing to Buy of the Day: ‘The Comedy’


Since Awesome Show, Great Job! ended, Tim Heidecker has stayed pretty busy, usually working on a few shows, movies, podcasts, or movie projects at a time. Most recently he’s co-founded JASH and returned to making funny stuff with Eric Wareheim for the new video network. Last year he starred in Rick Alverson’s film The Comedyout on DVD today — which is not really a comedy but more of a drama about Heidecker’s character being upset and doing nothing in Brooklyn. It’s cool seeing Heidecker as a sad, serious type of guy. Also, Eric Wareheim does show up for a while, as does LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy, which is cool, too.
