Hitting Up Chicago: Bringing Heffernan Lemme Live
This past weekend, Kevin Heffernan and Steve Lemme were creating a laughing storm at Chicago’s Thalia Hall as one of the stops on their 10-city live tour, truTV PResents: Tacoma FD’s Heffernan Lemme Live. The duo took the stage in promotion of their most recent project together, Tacoma FD, the all-new television series that has emerged as the #1 new cable comedy series for audiences of 18-34 since premiering just last month.
The two-man show involved traditional stand-up comedy and an endless number of funny stories about their experience on the set of their movies and TV show. This Broken Lizard’s duo has worked to create amazing work which include films like, Super Troopers, Beerfest and Club Dread. The audience got to enjoy a great beer with the two as well.
Heffernan and Lemme were promoting their new half-hour comedy show, which they both star in, co-create and executively produce, truTV’s Tacoma FD, a story of a firehouse in one of America’s most rainiest cities. It follows the hilarious stories of firefighters keeping themselves entertained with competitions, bizarre emergency calls and of course, fires that need to be extinguished. The diverse cast includes Eugene Cordero (Andy), Marcus Henderson (Granny), Gabriel Hogan (Ike) and Hassie Harrison (Lucy) for the 10-episode first season with guest stars including, Suzy Nakamura from Dr. Ken, Heather Mazur from Insecure and many more. That Nerd Show writes, “This is one of the funniest sitcoms I’ve seen in a long time.”
Catch the hilariously ridiculous, new episodes on Thursdays at 10:30 ET/PT on truTV.
