Absurdist comedy duo Tim and Eric, who are responsible for such brilliantly bizarre shows as “Tom Goes to the Mayor” and “Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!” will make their third Denver appearance in September with a special guest in tow — frizzy-haired buddy/nemesis Dr. Steve Brule (a.k.a. Oscar-nominated actor/buddy John C. Reilly).
Tim and Eric’s stage shows are always ridiculous affairs with live and recorded music, videos, dancing and costumes that look like they were cobbled together from the dumpster outside a 1990s-era Hollywood sound stage.
But the addition of Brule — whose own Adult Swim show “Check It Out! With Dr. Steve Brule” (a spin-off of “Awesome Show”) has enjoyed three seasons on the air — is a wild card.
Will Tim and Eric interview Brule from the stage? Will they dress up as Brule’s fictional Channel 5 counterparts, Jan and Wayne Skylar (The Tri-State’s Only Married News Team) whilst doing so? Will anyone vomit or strip down to their underwear or throw freeze-dried shrimp into the audience?
These are the serious questions, my friends, because it’s all happened before.
