After cramming the Howlin' Wolf last month for their over-the-top Pusswhip Banggang "Swamp Rock" tour, comedians Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim return to New Orleans with Dr. Steve Brule (aka actor John C. Reilly as the hilariously inept star of his own public access show, Check It Out! With Dr. Steve Brule). The duo and the doctor perform at the Civic Theatre (510 O'Keefe St.) Sept. 19.
Reilly's "Brule's Rules" segments on Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! spun off into the brilliant, VHS-quality Check It Out!, featuring Reilly as Brule exploring a topic in each episode (titles include "Food," "Space," and "Horse"). It recently wrapped its third six-episode season. You can watch clips from nearly every episode on the adult swim website. For this tour, Brule will host a similarly educational segment.
Tim and Eric — who also were behind the cult semi-animated series Tom Goes to the Mayor — will debut their live action series Tim and Eric's Bedtime Stories later this year.
Tickets are $39.50 and go on sale Friday, July 18.
