tim and eric awesome show great job
Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim are busy rehearsing for the new tour, which includes a set by comedian Neil Hamburger and the duo's band, Pusswhip Banggang. "It all comes together at the last minute," said Heidecker.
After that, they'll be working on their big screen debut, 'The Tim and Eric Billion Dollar Movie,' co-produced by Will Ferrell. But when that's finished, they wouldn't rule out coming back to the 'Awesome Show.' "You never know," Wareheim said. "We'll never say it's over."
The Adult Swim Presents Summer at Santos Series includes six live shows featuring a different musical and/or comedy performance each night.
It's a great opportunity for fans of various Adult Swim series to see their creators and stars live and on stage. The casts and minds behind Metalocalypse, Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! were each asked to prepare their own unique show for their respective night.
Eric Wareheim of Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! has posted a ton of pictures and video from the "Tim and Eric Awesome Tour," or, as I refer to it, the "Tim and Eric Suck Because They Made Zero Stops in the Midwest Tour."
The live audience member-filmed videos are the only way you'll have of seeing these shows, as a proposed live webcast was canceled due to legal reasons. There are, however, a lot of vids from the tour popping up on YouTube, and you can always go to Tim and Eric's Web site and see early versions of some of the skits they performed.
I've placed a video from the tour after the jump. If you're a fan of Tim and Eric, I'd like to say "you're welcome." If you're not the kind of person who gets into the kind of surreal, deadpan comedy these fellas do so well, I'd like to apologize in advance for what's no doubt going to be a very confusing three minutes and forty-one seconds.
In case you missed it the other three billion times I mentioned it, I'm a big fan of Tim and Eric. I thought their series Tom Goes to the Mayor was one of the funniest shows of the last couple years, and I'm growing more and more fond of Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, their disjointed and smarter-than-it-seems sketch show.
If you also like Awesome Show but wish you could pay money to watch it, it's now available on iTunes.
In addition, Tim and Eric are heading out on tour with exactly zero stops in the Midwest, the big dumb jerks. Sorry, I'm just a little bitter. While on tour, they'll be filming a documentary of the whole experience, so keep an eye on AdultSwim.com for clips from the road, as well as a full webcast of their appearance in Atlanta on March 1.
Here's a tiny taste of what to expect.
The new sketch comedy series, Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job!, from Tom Goes to the Mayor creators Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim kicks off February 11 at 11:45pm on Adult Swim. There are a bunch of promos for the series on YouTube, none of which really explain what the show is about, but if it the series is anything like Tim and Eric's previous work, it probably defies explanation anyway. Or, it's a brand new approach to comedy that is actually much smarter than it seems. Either way, I'll be checking it out.
Oh yeah, and if you want to experience the boys live, they're hitting the road later this month for the Tim and Eric Awesome Tour, with absolutely no stops in the Midwest, the rat bastards. Tour stops and ticket information are after the jump. If you get a chance to meet either Tim or Eric on this tour, tell them Adam sends his love from Minneapolis and then kick them in the shins for me. Thanks.
Adult Swim recently posted another preview of sorts of Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, the new sketch comedy show from Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, creators and stars of Tom Goes to the Mayor. The new series debuts February 11, and I gotta say, that day can't get here fast enough. As I've said here about fifty zillion times, I'm a big Tim and Eric fan. I wish I could call the calendar people and tell them to make the days go faster. I wish the calendar people wouldn't tell me to stop calling and making stupid requests. If you were to call me on the phone I would yak your ear off for hours about how much I love Tim and Eric's dry, surreal brand of comedy. Did I say dry cereal brand of comedy? No, I said dry surreal. If you read it aloud, it does kind of sound like "dry cereal," though. In conclusion, watch the clip.
Well, I mentioned earlier that Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, the twisted minds behind one of my favorite shows, Tom Goes to the Mayor, were developing a sketch show for Adult Swim. We now know that the name of the new show is Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!. According to the duo, the humor will be not unlike the short films the two made before bringing Tom Goes to the Mayor to Adult Swim. Also, Tom Goes to the Mayor will take a break while the two focus on their new show. Hopefully it won't be gone forever, for sad I would be.
If you just can't wait until February 11th for the premiere of their new show, you can always head to Pasadena, California tomorrow for the Doo Dah Parade, a crazy spoof of the New Year's Day Rose Parade. Tim and Eric will be there, will you?
