New York Theatrical Premiere!
Made over the course of seven years, Rick 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 anestheticized generation, The Comedy also stars Eric Wareheim (Tim and Eric), James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem, and Kate Lyn Sheil (Green). An official selection this year at both Sundance and SXSW, its New York theatrical premiere at BAM follows its inclusion in this year’s BAMcinemaFest. A Tribeca Film release.
