It’s not a trick, but it most certainly is a treat: Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim of Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! fame are making their return to Adult Swim with a Halloween special titled Tim and Eric’s Bedtime Stories: Coven. Oh, sorry — misread that. It’s Tim and Eric’s Bedtime Stories: Haunted House. But even better! Tim + Eric + special guest Zach Galifianakis > witches.
In this 30-minute special, the three men move into a cursed home for the rest of their lives to secure an inheritance from their grandfather, leading to some off-beat physical comedy that the Three Stooges would approve of. In these two clips from TEBSHH, you will come to learn that ghosts are scary, but stairs are even scarier.
The special airs Thursday, Oct. 31, at midnight.
