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.”

- In a new interview with Vice, Tim Heidecker explains his approach to Tim and Eric’s Bedtime Stories, which debuts on Thursday, September 18th on Adult Swim.
