Friend in comedy journalism Nick A. Zaino III got Tim and Eric on the phone to explain themselves. Zaino’s verdict? "The show is a lot more fun if you just immerse yourself in the
weirdness, as audiences did with Monty Python and Ernie Kovacs in their
respective times."

"We know that that’s the kind of show that we’d want to watch if we
were 17 years old," says Tim Heidecker of the duo’s approach. "They’re the
kind of shows that make you feel like they’ve gone into your brain and
they know exactly what you want to see."

Their sold-out tour hits Cambridge, Mass., on Monday (not coincidentally, Neil Hamburger plays the bar next door the day before them), then NYC on Tuesday, Philadelphia on Wednesday. Tim and Eric’s season one DVD is available now. Click below to buy it!
