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.
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 »

When "Tom Goes to the Mayor" ended, i was sad, because the humor in that show was very unique. So when "Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!" was announced, i couldn't wait to see what the duo had cooked up this time. Needless to say, it works. The show has no plot and basically parodies everything that people hate, such as infomercials and local commercials. The humor isn't for everyone, it's definitely not "mature" humor by any means. But it's great comedy with perfect timing and just the right amount of annoyance that makes the Awesome Show so great. A good example is a sketch called "Here She Comes" in which "Weird Al" walks elderly women down a wedding aisle where at the end stand Tim and Eric who consistently repeat, "Here she comes..." Guest spots pop up everywhere, mostly from underrated comedians such as Zach Galifinakis (sorry if that was misspelled) in the memorable "Gravy Robbers" sketch. As I said, the show isn't for everyone. But for those who can identify with the humor of Tim and Eric, this show will be your new reason to not smash your TV each week.
