Tim Heidecker Is Going on Two Tours at Once

Tim Heidecker, the reigning king of spoofs and goofs and subtle prince of lovely jams, is going on a sort-of split-personality tour this summer. The HEI Network impresario and Office Hours professor is bringing “an evening of stand-up, music, and applause” to 26 North American cities this summer, beginning with a week of July warm-up shows in Los Angeles. Heidecker will perform the first act of each appearance as his “No More Bullshit” stand-up character, all hair gel and hubris, as seen in his 2020 An Evening with Tim Heidecker special. Heidecker is almost too good at deconstructing the most grating tendencies of male comics, but we can’t stay too mad at the fictional asshole who gave us this gem:

The other half of each show will see Heidecker pivoting from riffs (the comedy type) to riffs (the guitar type) as he does a set of his songs accompanied by his Very Good Band. The tour announcement comes in conjunction with a springtime-y new single, “Buddy,” from Heidecker’s upcoming album, High School. One of the producers on the album is Mac DeMarco, which you probably could have guessed just from listening to the track.

Find your nearest city and grab a ticket when they go on sale Friday, April 15, if you want to nab a seat close enough for Heidecker to drop his mic stand on you.
