Yesterday, we reported that comedian Eric Andre had crashed a rally outside the Republican National Convention being hosted by noted nutjob Alex Jones. It seemed like a strange bit (which is to be expected from Eric Andre), partly because it wasn’t clear if he was filming something for his Eric Andre Show on Adult Swim or if he was just there to stir the pot and make Jones look silly. Whatever he was doing, though, it turns out that Eric Andre isn’t the only weirdo comedian walking through Cleveland, as Tim Heidecker—another Adult Swim favorite—posted a video on his Instagram yesterday of the same rally that Andre was at.
Apparently, Heidecker has actually been walking around outside the RNC doing comedy bits as well, and like Andre, it’s not clear if he’s doing this for anyone in particular’s benefit other than his Twitter followers and the people who manage to see him in action. Also, after Andre took over the Alex Jones rally, Heidecker tweeted at him as Jones:
He also continued that thread earlier today, when he did a surprisingly uncanny impression of Jones while hijacking a mic from someone reporting for his Infowars site:

Heidecker has also been posting live videos on Facebook where he zooms really close in on people’s faces, conducts ironically respectful interviews with people on the street, and yells “Senator!” at everyone he sees (just in case they’re a senator). In a way, his videos are a better way to learn about what’s going on in Cleveland than what the normal media is offering. Who else is going to let you know about the people handing out porn?
