Anyway, when not talking about these singers (and their crap), Hamburger's material incorporated bad "Knock Knock" jokes and an incredible joke told in French/American. His French pronunciations and dictations were impeccable.
His fast food jokes including the only thing worth saving at a Taco Bell and bringing your grandparents to Hardee's. The latter, Hamburger wasn't exactly sure if Minneapolis was a Hardee's town (in the West Coast, where Hamburger is from, it's all about the Carl's Jr). Sadly, no jokes about 7-Eleven, but then someone reminded me that no one would find that funny because Minneapolis doesn't have 7-Elevens.
Coming on the stage to Paul Simon's "You Can Call Me Al", Tim Heidecker knocked over the mic stand and fumbled for the microphone on stage. When the music didn't stop, Heidecker said, "Cut the music!" But the song continued, forcing Heidecker to re-do his entrance. It's all part of the joke, including the badly adjusting and readjusting of the microphone stand, but it was fun to watch him act it out.
Tim Heidecker's notes
The first part of his show is truly unique to our show, he's written a few Minneapolis-specific jokes, including buying "mini-sodas" and "mini-apples". The Minneapolis music jokes of Hüsker Don't and the original Replacements got a big laugh. Of course, when the obvious choice of Prince came up, he said there was just too much respect there to joke about.
Speaking of music, he actually had a whole segment on "Women in Music" (Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Madonna) and a bit on Keith Urban and The Zombies (the band).
The other thing was Heidecker must be used to random drunk hecklers at his show that he actually has a safe word ("Root Beer") to have security kick out the offending audience member. It wasn't acting, both Hamburger and Heidecker were visibly aggressive, not happy to hear hecklers hijacking their show. Another comedian once put it into perspective, it's like if the comedian showed up at the heckler's job and started yelling and distracting them at his desk. It's just not cool.
Carly and Tim
Tim got down on his knee with Heidecker's wedding band and proposed marriage. It was all in good fun, no one expect them to go through with it, of course.
The best part of Heidecker show was the encore. He came back on stage and decided to play some The Yellow River Boys tunes on the house piano. If you didn't know, in 2013, Heidecker and his band The Yellow River Boys released an all-urination album called Urinal St. Station (yes, a whole 10-track album about pee). The two songs he played were "Hot Piss" and "Slurp It Up".
With the great Minneapolis jokes and The Yellow River Boys songs, this felt like a truly unique and special show... especially for Canadian Tim, Carly and their faux marriage.
