From Tim and Eric, the creators of Adult Swim's 'Tom Goes To The Mayor', comes a bizarre comedy, which consists of sketches, fake commercials, prank phone calls, etc. Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, features many guest stars, in addition to it's numerous appearances by the show's creators Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim. It is mostly live-action, which is very unusual for a channel called "Cartoon Network". The unusual humor should appeal to viewers of the rest of the Adult Swim block that airs on the Cartoon Network
Runtime: 15 minutes

Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! is an American sketch comedy series created by and starring Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, which premiered February 11, 2007 on Adult Swim and ran until May 2010. The show features surreal and often satirical humor (at points anti-humor and cringe comedy), public-access television-style musical acts, bizarre faux-commercials with a unique editing and special effects style by Doug Lussenhop to make the show appear camp. The program featured a wide range of performers, including regular guests Zach Galifianakis, John C. Reilly, Ray Wise, Bob Odenkirk, Will Forte, Jeff Goldblum, and “Weird Al” Yankovic, as well as an ensemble of alternative performers like Neil Hamburger and David Liebe Hart, former television stars like Alan Thicke, porn stars, celebrity look-alikes, impressionists, and amateur actors found through Craigslist. The show also attracts a wide range of popular Hollywood talent for brief appearances, including Marilyn Manson, Will Ferrell, Elisha Cuthbert, Rainn Wilson, David Cross, Fred Armisen, Patton Oswalt, Ben Stiller, Paul Rudd, Dave Navarro, Ted Danson, Peter Cetera, and Josh Groban. The creators of the show have described it as “the nightmare version of television”. On August 27, 2017, Adult Swim broadcast a ten-year anniversary special, known as Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! Awesome 10 Year Anniversary Version, Great Job?, including new sketches as well as a best-of from older broadcasts.

Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job! has had a wide range of reviews with many differing in opinion. Columnist for The New York Times Dave Itzkoff writes, “‘Awesome Show’ revels in an aesthetic of awkwardness.” And also adds, “To populate their twisted universe they frequently cast average-looking actors (and nonactors) recruited from Web sites like Craigslist, who bring an additional layer of deliberate amateurishness to their skits.” James Norton from Flak Magazine says, “If Adult Swim is the bleeding edge of TV comedy, Tim and Eric's Awesome Show, Great Job! [sic] is the bleeding edge of the bleeding edge.” He adds, “The program has been much hated-upon by the Adult Swim fan base.... But the program also represents a foray into one of the most dangerous and exciting realms of the comedy world: sheer individualistic creativity.”
