Product Notes

On the cusp of inheriting his father's estate, Swanson (Tim Heidecker, Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!) is a man with unlimited options. An aging hipster in Brooklyn, he spends his days in aimless recreation with like-minded friends (Tim & Eric co-star Eric Wareheim, LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy and comedian Gregg Turkington a.k.a."Neil Hamburger") in games of comic irreverence and mock sincerity. As Swanson grows restless of the safety a sheltered life offers him, he tests the limits of acceptable behavior, pushing the envelope in every way he can. Played brilliantly by Heidecker, his deadpan delivery cleverly masks a deep desire for connection and sense in the modern world. THE COMEDY wears it's name on it's sleeve, but director Rick Alverson's powerful and provocative character study touches a darkness behind the humor that resonates with viewers long after the story ends. Bonus features include: Story Behind the Scene Presented by American Express and Audio Commentary with Tim Heidecker and Director Rick Alverson.
