'Tim and Eric' Season Cinco promo: The sickness that's good for what ails ya

Posted on

To put it mildly, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim’s comedy is not everyone’s cup of tea. That is to say, not everyone likes pink shrimp-and-white-wine vomit in their tea. So I won’t waste time trying to explain why their Adult Swim series Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! (which returns for season 5 on Feb. 28) is nothing short of brilliant — demented, gross, and disturbing, but brilliant. Instead, I will simply state that A) They were down with Zach Galifianakis WAY before you were B) there’s no way John C. Reilly’s Dr. Steve Brule went to medical school and C) spaghetti and meatballs.

I my gawd, I can’t waaaaaaaait. I’m definitely getting a crate of child clowns and throwing a Tim and Eric premiere party. Somebody pass the Wait Mates. Who’s with me?
