American comedy duo Tim and Eric will return to Australia this year with their newest show, the Mandatory Attendance World Tour. The duo is comprised of comedians and artists Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, founders of the Adult Swim television series Tom Goes To The Mayor; Tim And Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!; Check It Out! With Dr Steve Brule; and Tim & Eric’s Bedtime Stories.
Tim and Eric guarantee fans are in for a life-changing experience.
Eric Wareheim spoke with City Hub about the upcoming tour, saying: “The Mandatory Attendance Tour is a brand new Tim and Eric experience that we’re doing for 2020. It has new levels of comedy, I guarantee that anyone who comes to see this show will be moved, almost in a spiritual way, like you see in a lot of religious experiences.” Eric went on to say, “you might even be levitated off of your seat, it’s going to be beautiful and powerful, there may be some tears, it’s going to be awesome.”
Eric says that Australian fans are some of their most committed and that the duo are looking forward to performing for an Australian audience again.
“This show is kind of coming back to our favourite thing, we have a lot of fun performing live. Our fans are so cool, they’re so willing to get in board with some of the experimental kinds of things that we do.”
The Mandatory Attendance Tour is a show not for the faint-hearted and Eric guarantees a full-on visceral experience for the audience.
“Audiences are gonna have a spiritual and emotional awakening. I wouldn’t be surprised if this show changes their lives forever.”
