Tim Heidecker / Top 5 Dramatic Performances by Comic Actors / Coffy

Filmspotting pays respect to the performers who decided they were no longer satisfied simply being clowns here to amuse with a countdown of the Top 5 Dramatic Performances by Comic Actors. Plus, Adam’s conversation with one such performer: Tim Heidecker of Tim & Eric fame discusses his transition to the semi-tragic side for his new film "The Comedy"... and Pam Grier stars as "Coffy" in the third Blaxploitation Marathon film.

This episode is presented by Hover and FreshBooks.
