The title of the show is a mixture of ideas. Bob Odenkirk suggested to have "Tim and Eric" in the title, Eric Wareheim suggested the name "Awesome Show", and Tim Heidecker suggested the name "Great Job". The comma (,) and the exclamation point were added then for comedic effect. See more »

What the heck you gonna do if you're on a picnic and have an ice cream and the ants crawl on the ice cream, what are you gonna do? You're gonna eat the ants because it's made out of protein.

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 »
This show is completely hilarious. A totally absurd, insane, bizarre style of humor that is sadly missing from most of TV. There hasn't been anything as gleefully wacked out as this since "Stella", which, in my opinion was the funniest thing on TV when it was on. Luckily, this show is garnering a huge cult following and not tanking in the ratings department. This show is alternately disorienting, disturbing, brilliant, hilarious to the point of near pants peeing and sometimes its all these things at once. There humor is polarizing, but I'd say most of the people I've introduced it to love it, with a small minority being not into it. I can't praise it enough. In this age of lame, extremely predictable comedy, Tim And Eric are twin harbingers of fresh air. Am I at 10 lines yet? Yep. Anyway, best comedy on TV and please keep it up!
