As any dedicated follower of the hilarious, irreverent, and sometimes gross comedy duo Tim and Eric can attest, a popular refrain while watching their work (be it from their late, great Adult Swim show, "Tim and Eric's Awesome Show Great Job!," their work with Funny or Die, and most recently their piece de resistance, "Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie") is "Are they serious?".
And in "The Comedy," a decidedly not-so-comedic film directed by Rick Alverson about a thirtysomething Williamsburg resident in the throes of ennui, self-involvement, and lots of money he's set to inherit from his ailing father, fans will likely once again question the work's gravity. The starring role of Swanson is played by none other than Tim Heidecker (his comedy partner, Eric Wareheim, plays one of Swanson's friends).
