Adult Swim called Bedtime Stories. It's a more traditional show while still aligning with the Tim & Eric brand of humor. Which is to say, it's one complete story that may or may not be funny, but is definitely weird, and possibly unsettling. The duo, along with their friend Dr. Steve Brule, are on tour promoting the new show, and dropped in on the State Theatre to make us laugh and feel strange. The show started off with DJ Dougg Pound spinning some tunes (into jokes) which eventually segued into him introducing Tim & Eric. They proceeded to give the impression that they hadn't really prepared anything for the show. They were asking aloud, "Now what should we do?" which allowed them to do some funny brainstorming and light audience interaction. From here they introduced us to the first of a few clips of the final episode of the season of Bedtime Stories, which starred Jason Schwartzman. The episode, like most of Tim & Eric's shows, was dark, twisted, but humorous. This was one of my favorite episodes of Bedtime Stories, and you can see the promo for it below. When they returned they brought back one of the skits from Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job; The Cinco Family/Corporation as two of their sales reps, looking for a new product. The product was called Grum Soda, which includes ingredients nicotine, tar and spicy cheese. They also debuted the vending maching for Grum, which was a bland but unsettling grey character, that dispensed the cans from it's crotch. Marketed for children! The enthusiasm of which they marketed this fictional drink was so great, I would have bought some.
