In a series of micro-sketches, the duo imitates and warps everything from cable-access TV to instructional videos to local news to extreme sports, with levels of irony and parody so intense itll make your little humanities-degreed head explode. Add purposely, sadly low-budget visual effects and a surprising cast of guest stars like John C. Reilly and Weird Al, and the overall effect is hilarious when you find time to laugh before the next hyper-speed jump cut.
Thanks to their irreverent, lo-fi style, Tim and Eric have found a niche with an indie rock-skewed crowd, and thus are taking their show on the road to a series of rock clubs. The Tim and Eric Awesome Tour hits Revolution this Sunday at 7 p.m. (200 W. Broward Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale). Tickets cost $24, but the endless material for your next semiotics thesis is free.
