The bad-boy comedian Tim Heidecker plays a shaggy rich-kid wastrel who wanders around in an alcoholic stupor putting people on, telling jokes that mock minorities, ”bitches,” and the working class — but it’s all deeply ironic! (Or is it?) The filmmaker, Rick Alverson, stages this ramble in a grungy, annoying fashion that suggests Harmony Korine on helium. The Comedy pretends to be a satire of entitlement, but it’s made in a style so indulgent that the whole film feels entitled in the extreme. (Also available on VOD) C
