Tim & Eric &... James Murphy? Watch A Clip From "The Comedy"
By Geanna Barlaam
In today’s I’m-not-sure-how-to-feel-about-this-news, James Murphy is making an appearance in two of this year’s Sundance films. Aside from the much Much MUCH anticipated LCD Soundsystem documentary, Shut Up and Play the Hits, Murphy has a supporting role in Rick Alverson’s The Comedy. Also featuring actors Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim (of Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! fame), the film’s eye-roll-worthy plot follows Heidecker’s main character as he acts like a baby and upsets people with his other privileged friends in Brooklyn. The clip that’s circulating the interwebs is obnoxious and often unbearable.
In other words, it’s why I generally avoid hanging out with spoiled, middle-aged men. Right? Right.
Since Mr. Murphy can often do no wrong in my world, I’m holding off total judgment until I see the whole thing. In the meantime, you should probably watch this clip below and see for yo’self, fools!
