Vicar St, Dublin
Thursday 30th March 2023
Tim Heidecker (from Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! and beyond) is taking his “No More Bullshit” stand-up character on the road, as well as his Very Good Band to present the first two-act evening of Tim Heidecker comedy and music to Dublin’s Vicar Street on March 30th.
Heidecker’s “An Evening with Tim Heidecker” stand up special has over reached 1 million views on YouTube, and has prompted publications like Vulture to dub him “the poet laureate of delusional assholes.” Truly, the “Tim Heidecker” of stand-up comedy is the epitome of a “‘truth-telling’ comic with none of the talent, but all of the narcissism and aggression” (Vulture). There is no one finer at the art of “failure-centric comedy” (Vice) than this version of Heidecker.
The second half of the show features another side of Heidecker, the songwriter, musician and performer who has released a number of albums, including the recent Fear of Death collaboration with Weyes Blood, and his forthcoming record, High School. About Fear of Death, the Washington Post wrote “for the first time, Heidecker sounds unapologetically like himself on tape — dark but not dour, witty if not necessarily here for punchlines.” This is Tim Heidecker without the quotes around his name, a representation of a talented and prolific songwriter who never eschews his natural inclination towards humor, but where there’s always something deeper and more real for listeners to sink their teeth into. Heidecker (guitar, vocals) and the Very Good Band, Josh Adams (drums), Eliana Athayde (bass, vocals) and Catfish Connor (lead guitar, pedal steel), will play songs from the entire Tim Heidecker catalogue.
