Tyler and Eric have been terrorizing TV by taking the traditional formats of a sketch comedy and a public access show, respectively, and each adding their personal brand of weirdness, improv, and general mayhem. To put it bluntly—Tyler, The Creator and Eric André are out here fucking shit up.
For the cover story of Issue 55, writer Gabriel Alvarez braved the salvage yard behind Apex Electronics in Southern California to chop it up with these two televisionaries while photographer Chris McPherson captured the madness. During the course of the interview, Tyler and Eric touched on everything from 69ing with Joan Rivers (RIP) to Ferguson. They dropped knowledge, a barrage of F bombs, and even shared an intimate Death Grips moment.
