Most musicians are pretty serious, right? Sure, some of them have a sense of humor; Paul Simon has hosted “Saturday Night Live” four times and Mr. Springsteen has appeared in a parody satirizing himself on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,” but few have the ability to mix their music with their funny side.

In the case of outsider artist, puppeteer, actor and musician David Liebe Hart and his associate James Quall from “Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!” (a truly bizarre Adult Swim show), the music, though poppy and driving, is in reality a pretty ingenious stand-up routine that is guaranteed to make you more than a bit squeamish.

Do your funny bone a favor and check out these talented comedians/lyricists, appearing with the local rap-parody duo, Disco and Gregg Cee, and comedian AJ Gill tonight at High Dive, starting at 9 p.m.
