Here’s a clip from surrealist comedians Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim’s new “Twilight Zone”-inspired comedy/horror series, “Bedtime Stories.” As per usual with Tim and Eric’s work, the show really… defies description. In this clip, Heidecker plays a young pop star hopeful named Scotty: While serving up some frosted elegance, he performs an ungodly, wordless, operatic song for a pedo-y Wareheim, who can’t help but monologue about its beauty.
“Bedtime Stories” is much less overtly surreal than “Awesome Show,” but if you like Tim and Eric’s stilted nightmare-TV aesthetic, this will float your boat. Also worth checking out: That new Jeff Goldblum commercial. Yes, that’s right, Tim and Eric strike again.
Here is the clip from “Bedtime Stories,” entitled “Angel Boy.” The show airs tonight at 12:15am on Adult Swim.
