Presented in partnership with Rooftop Films, this encore outdoor screening of The Comedyincludes live music and an after-party with free beer.
Alverson’s fearlessly provocative, acerbic, pitch-black portrait of a privileged Brooklynite—played by a razor-sharp Tim Heidecker (Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!) in his first dramatic role—has drawn comparisons to La Dolce Vita and Lars von Trier’s The Idiots. A darkly affecting satire of our current anesthetized generation, The Comedy also stars Eric Wareheim (Tim and Eric), James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem, and Kate Lyn Sheil (Green).
