Absurdist comedy duo Tim Heidecker and Eric Weirheim are coming back to Adult Swim for their fourth show, Beef House, a “sitcom” (emphasis on the air-quotes) about a group of men living in a, well, Beef House. What is a Beef House? We’re not exactly sure, but we can’t wait to find out. Check out the new trailer to get some idea of just what you’re in for.
This will be Tim and Eric’s fourth Adult Swim collaboration following their earlier work, Tom Goes To The Mayor, Tim And Eric Awesome Show Great Job, and Tim And Eric’s Bedtime Stories. They’re also partially responsible for the John C. Riley spin-off show, Check It Out! With Doctor Steve Brule, where Riley’s character, the titular Dr. Steve Brule, regularly visited with Tim and Eric mainstay characters Jan and Wayne Skyler, the married news team.
According to the announcement, Beef House is a “multi-camera sitcom about five men–Tim, Eric, Ron Auster, Ben Hur, Tennessee Luke–and Eric’s wife Megan, all living under one roof. Each week Tim, a laid back rock-and-roll slacker, and his best friend Eric, a high strung stay-at-home husband, find themselves in the middle of a madcap misadventure that can only be traversed with the help of their fellow Beef Boys.”
Needless to say, if you’re not already on board with Tim and Eric’s very specific brand of avant-garde comedy, Beef House may not look all that appealing to you–let’s be honest, their shows tend to be pretty stark “love it or hate it” affairs. But, if you’re like us and can’t wait to check out what those Beef Boys are up to, the show will air overnight on Adult Swim at 12:15 AM.
Beef House premieres this Sunday, March 29.
