Tim & Eric

Tim and Eric played two shows at The Best Buy Theater in NYC on Saturday November 27th to extremely packed crowds. I am pretty sure there were no other events scheduled at the venue earlier in the day, but upon entering the live room for the early show you could have told me that High Times had sponsored an Official Farting Contest earlier in the day and I would have believed you (it smelled like weed and farts in there). I got there just as Neil Hamburger hit the stage, and he did an all-too-short set that can only be described as perfect. And classic. After a very brief post-Hamburger intermission, T&E staple David Liebe Hart appeared on the video screen to introduce the show and warm up the crowd. Overall the show was pretty funny. We saw skits that featured T&E's Chrimbus characters, Jim Heckler and Derrick Whipple (probably my favorite T&E characters ever), and more, as well as videos and a performance by Pusswhip Banggang.

Though I do prefer the TV show much more; the editing, sound design, and overall craziness that can be achieved on television works better for me than seeing skits of theirs played out on stage, but the live show was still funny as hell. More pictures from the late show (some a bit NSFW), below...

show was fun.

Pusswhip banggang did not need to be a full set. I thought it got tedious. Would have preferred a straight up Casey and his Brother set like they did at Highline a few years ago.

I'm a big fan of the their 12 minute TV show — I bought tickets to see them...wish I had my $40 back. Not funny. No guests. Tedious. I left early.

Also, these T&E shows HAVE to stop being at standing room venues. Seeing the at the Knit and Highline is fine, but when it comes to 2100 cap venues, it's time to let people sit.

Great fuckin show.

Prefer them on DVD, and find some of their live show-momentum robbed by their (intentional) false starts/do-overs and live video interstitials, but overall they put together a solid variety act that gave T/E fans a little of everything. Neil Hammy was corrosively hilarious as usual, 15 minutes of perfection. I thought the Terminix and Jim & Derrick portions the best. As well as some of the vid portions: Pierre getting frostbitten to death and Quall weighing in on WHARF.

Good goofs, good spoofs.

The reason I like the show is because of their spontaneity and all the kooky transitions. I just don't really like how they play off the already established jokes and characters so that the super-nerds can yell out and repeat everything thinking that people will laugh at them and not the people on stage. It would have been nice to see some crazy new characters/skits/jokes instead of just tons of vamps on stuff they've already written.

Neil Hamburger sounds like the only appealing factor in this.
