"Jim and Derrick": Tim and Eric "take a night off" from The Awesome Show to bring you this very special NEW show: a wonderful spoof of themselves that lampoons the music skills of DJ Dougpound (Doug ...
An all-cynical, all-evil absurdist variety show that parodies the classic educational PBS shows of the 1970s, made up of old cartoons and educational films, children, and puppets from one's worst nightmares.
Contenders for the name of the show were "Let's Have Fun Again" and "Ring-a-ding". See more »

some of, if not, THE best comedy out there at the moment!
When I first came to see the IMDb rating of 7.0 on Tim and Eric Awesome
show, Great Job! my jaw hit the floor at why it could have such a low
rating in regards to what the show is. Upon further investigation, and
reading the reviews, I should have known all along that it would be a
situation like this. There would be virtually no average reviews. It is
either people who love it, and see it for what it is...which is some of
the best comedy out there at the moment, and those who just don't quite
I don't want to be too patronising (british spelling) and say that the
people who don't get it are stupid idiots...which i secretly think ;)
but I do think it takes a certain amount of understanding to fully
appreciate it. I think that there are several layers, with each layer
getting more subtle and intelligent. Many of the people who see this
show may only see the first layer, and claim it is base, toilet humour,
which some have. This is because this is the easiest layer of the
comedy genius to see, and they see it as this, and nothing else. The
blatant toilet humour is almost just an exterior, which does have its
use, and in many cases is genuinely funny. However those distracted by
this will miss the far more intelligent humour that runs beneath. The
way it mocks all aspects of television, from the cheesy shows of the
last 2 decades, to the contemporary fads and phenomena that you see
today. It doesn't just point it to you. some of it is obvious. Some is
less obvious. I have found that I find an episode more funny after
several viewings. This is a satire of the highest order. It is far from
JUST toilet humour. It is supposed to be low budget. That is part of
what makes it great. The show doesn't take itself too seriously at all.
This show has made me laugh out loud more times than I can remember in
I really like the actors in this show. These people are either the
worst actors of all time, or the best actors of all time. I can never
be sure, but either way the effect is the same, which is pure hilarity.
The humaness, and realness of the actors in the show really makes them
a lot more appealing. I freaking hate the fakeness and lack of realness
in people in TV these days, but the actors they have in here I can
really relate to. Their little nuances, the awkward silences and quirks
makes them the most funny and humorous actors on the TV. I especially
like David Libre Hart, Quall, Dunn, and all the rest of them that I am
starting to recognise. There is a quiet but lovable desperation to it,
which makes for some of the best black/dark humour out
there...again...its not JUST toilet humour.
This show really is great. I am looking forward to future things from
these guys. I think they have got a great formula here. I wouldn't want
to see them get stale and stagnant, and of course I would like to see
them experiment and push new frontiers, but I sure hope they don't sell
out and become too mainstream. That would suck ass. Mad Props to Adult
Swim for always taking risks and pushing the boundaries, and not opting
for the formulaic mainstream crap thats out there (T & E do an
excellent parody of this in season 4, with a sitcom, with canned
laughter, and all the cliché mainstream comedy charcteristics. Its one
of my favies). Basically, I think this is like classical music. Its one
of those things that only the most sophisticated and intelligent people
can fully sppreciate, but will never be adopted by the greater
populous. Thats just the way I want it to stay.
I must say, that there is some really good comedy coming out of the USA
right now, and this is definitely my favourite at the moment. Although
I am British, I can still fully appreciate it. I did live in America
for about 2 years, and so in a way I can relate to it more in terms of
the things like the cable access style editing, and the commercials,
etc but I think this stuff would be appreciated anywhere, and is really
putting America on the comedy map, and showing that there is some
really good cutting edge comedy in America, that isn't all about
formulaic sitcoms and laugh tracks.
