For those of you who routinely hit this site looking for “tim and eric suck” or the more case-sensitive “Tim and Eric suck”. Do yourself a favor and go see them live. Here are a few of the things you should expect:First of all, you’ll find yourself in short supply. At the Knitting Factory last night, the place was filled to capacity on both floors, all with pumped up fans (many of whom brought their own merchandise to have signed). The show opens with DJ Douggpound. You’re gonna think he sucks, but you’ll soon be wrong. The opening act starts off slow and then gets going really well, ending just when the crowd is really getting into it and kicking off the main act, Tim and Eric.Here’s how they made an entrance. Eric’s a little hard to make out at first, but the crowd reaction will clue you in. 

The show is comprised of video clips from Awesome Show mixed in with live sketches. Some old, some new. Here’s Uncle Muscle Hour:

And the number one reason to go to the show is to see the big secret that no one was allowed to video tape. I can’t even tell you what it is here because the entire crowd swore an oath not to blog or video tape it, and to smack anyone in the back of the head who did. All I can tell you is it involves some hidden camera footage of one of the celebs who appeared on TGTTM.

UPDATE: Okay, I’m closing the comments for this post. I really don’t give a shit if you like them or not. If they don’t make you laugh then it’s your loss, please move the fuck on. ‘Nuff said. But I will leave  you haters with an excerpt of T&E’s interview with the Onion AV Club:

AVC: Did you have any idea that Tom would be as polarizing as it was? People loved it or just didn’t get it at all.  

TH: I don’t remember feeling like it was going to be polarizing. It was a surprise. I guess the only people that had seen it before were friends, and people that were interested in seeing it, so we’d only gotten positive reactions. Obviously, when it came out, there was this other side. We were warned by Adult Swim, who said, “Listen, there’s this element out there of pathetic, sad people that feel it’s important to write on these message boards if they don’t like something. It happens to all our shows, and it’s kind of meaningless, and it represents a very small portion of people.” There’s also 90 percent of the public that would never know the show exists at all, and probably wouldn’t get it if they did. So we’re talking about this really small percentage of people that watch the show, and then out of that, there’s this little, little group of people that hate it —and love talking about how much they hate it.

AVC: But it’s still easy to take personally.

TH: It’s never fun to read death threats. It was always like, “I hate Tim and Eric, I hope they die, they should die.”

EW: Coming from a 15-year-old kid. Where you hear reaction is on the Internet, and you know who that demographic is. We’ve gotten such a huge positive reaction from people that we respect. A lot of awesome bands and actors have reached out to us; they just want to be on the show because they like it.

TH: Frank Black loves Tom Goes To The Mayor. That’s all I needed to know. You can send me a million notes about how you fucking hate the show, but if Frank Black says it’s okay, I can go home.

The genius of Tim and Eric are their ability to pull off pitch-perfect mimicry of mediocre video production, posing as ‘normal’ people who are actually quite insane. This is my first attempt to verbalize my appreciation for their comedy, and it goes a lot deeper than I have time to type out here.

What I love about these guys more than anything is that they just seem to be great friends making each other laugh, and you know this if you’ve seen the “behind the scenes” episode or anything from their website. They were making this shit before adultswim found them, they’d still be making it if they’d never been discovered. It’s a very pure form of comedy that I happen to value very much.

So suck it, timanderic haters. Suck it long, and suck it hard.

Yo Boston:


I bet you can guess where I think you should put that. That’s right Boston, an anus joke. That’s what you get.

Damn, this is boring. Let’s go bother Cleveland.

Seriously, folks. I bought 5 shares of Time Warner stock just to make sure they get the message that the Adult Swim franchise should not be touched. They are the monolith of creative comedy in the 21st century. See the Aqua Teen Movie, several times, if necessary.
