That does look really good. It took me far too long to realize that was John C. Reilly, although I got it before they put the name up on screen.
I always enjoyed their movies, although I had no idea about any of the behind the scene stuff, so this will be new info for me. Can't wait.

(FTR, I was always a bit more partial to Abbot and Costello.)

I know, right? I'm wondering if it's very good makeup or CGI that's putting the weight on his face. The body is easily done with a fatsuit, but I've never seen overweight face makeup that looks that good.

I'd say very good makeup/prosthetic. Doing facial CGI on a real face would be very difficult to do well and would cost a lot more than physical makeup. Witness the bad job of removing Henry Cavril's mustache for the reshoots of Justice League and image a whole movie like that.

ETA: Even harder to do as you'd need to make sure that his clothing also matched the chin. For example, at 0:15, he nods and his collar and tie are pushed down and his shirt bends in slightly. To do that properly with CGI would be ridiculously complicated and expensive. Basically, what you would end up doing is putting a fake chin/jowls on him to get the effect, then animating it via CGI. Might as well spend a bit more time and make it all physical in the first place.

FETA: Most of time when I've seen an unconvincing job of fat-face it is because the actor's natural face is too lean and/or angular. Putting on cheek and jowl implants to fatten out the mid face then creates a stiffness of the face that looks odd. But John C Reilly's face has some "fat" features already on it like plump cheeks so they can concentrate on the lower jaw and allow his face to be more mobile.

It does look pretty good but I'm afraid before I see it I'd want to go back and see everything the two made, every radio show and every movie. Unfortunately, it is very hard to see a radio show.
