The movie title "The Comedy" is a bit of a subterfuge. While the movie is led by "Tim & Eric" comedian Tim Heidecker, and features his buddy Eric Wareheim, LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy and more, the movie itself is more of a deconstruction of the genre and perhaps of a lifestyle. Taking irony and provocoative humor to task, the movie is a challenging look at one man adrift as he contemplates his future. And the soundtrack is appropriately moody.

The Comedy

The movie title "The Comedy" is a bit of a subterfuge. While the movie is led by "Tim & Eric" comedian Tim Heidecker, and features his buddy Eric Wareheim, LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy and more, the movie itself is more of a deconstruction of the genre and perhaps of a lifestyle. Taking irony and provocoative humor to task, the movie is a challenging look at one man adrift as he contemplates his future. And the soundtrack is appropriately moody.

You won't find any of these on a top 40 playlist as the sixteen track collection -- which also features dialogue cuts from the movie -- includes indie rockers Here We Go Magic, two cuts from English singer/songwriter Bill Fay, two excerpts from avant garde legend William Basinski's famed "Disintegration Loops," hipster-approved soul act Gayngs, and a tune from recently rediscovered yacht rock duo Donnie & Joe Emerson and even more.

The soundtrack will drop digitally and on vinyl on November 13th via Jagjaguwar, while the film hits VOD on October 24th and theaters on November 9th. Check out the full tracklist and new trailer for the film below. [Exclaim!]
