Some people love DJs, others hate them, but DJ Dougg Pound is a DJ that everyone can enjoy. Splicing awkward puns with dubstep and excerpts from Kelly Clarkson songs, his take on musical comedy is refreshing. “Diarrhoea!” sung Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim as they danced and sung their way onto stage dressed in attire that featured oversized genitals and large, hairy nipples. Anyone unfamiliar with Tim & Eric would have been left in a state of shock. The show consisted of numerous segments, each featuring different characters from the Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!. To compensate for the five minutes it took for them to get in and out of costumes and makeup, the audience were treated to clips featuring show favourites Dr. Steve Brule (John C. Reilly), Zach Galifianakis, Will Forte, David Liebe Hart and more. At the show’s climax, hotdogs were pelted into the audience before Heidecker projected a mouth full of oats onto the front few rows. Amongst Casey and his brother, Spaghett, their Kid Break personas and more, the only notable characters missing were the Beaver Boys and Jan & Wayne Skylar, the married news team. With that said, it’s surprising they managed to squeeze in as much as they did. These guys take comedy to the next (weird) level. Great Job!
