The clip at the end of the show's credit sequence is from a 1991 Heidecker family vacation where Tim's father was asked to sum up the vacation in two words. He looked at the camera and said, "Abso-Lutely". See more »
Don't stare too close at your TV while watching the Tim & Eric Awesome Show... You might see a part of TV you try to avoid. Worse yet, you might laugh at it, and not understand why...
This show is the first highly specific 10-minute jab at the cable/public access TV parody & relies on heavily subversive & confrontational humor. Tim & Eric's breed of improv is more thematically constructed than average, which lends it to break out & resemble sketch more often than not.
But the genius is that the show's structure is just a playhouse for the obscene dramedy that inadvertently gets put on broadcast, much like an out-of-control public access TV channel. Inspired hilarity, featuring some of today's best sub level comedians working in a very large creative space.
The natural progression of Tom Goes to the Mayor, and something very new & differently funny.
