Opening in Los Angeles theaters on November 9th is the new drama The Comedy from director Rick Alverson (New Jerusalem). The film stars Tim Hiedecker from Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie, as well as his partner Eric Wareheim, and comedian Gregg Turkington (A.K.A. Neil Hamburger).

IAR's managing editor Jami Philbrick recently had a chance to sit down with comedian/actor Tim Hiedecker for a unusually calm chat about The Comedy. The hilariously funny Hiedecker discussed his new film, how he got his role, drama vs. comedy, not acting, working with director Rick Alverson, having Wareheim on set, and why fans of Tim and Eric will enjoy this film.

Indifferent to the notion of inheriting his father's estate, a Williamsburg guy (Heidecker) guy passes the time with his friends, playing games of mock sincerity and irreverence.
