Who decided these guys were funny?
The Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! - Season 1 -- or as I like to call it "Really Short Attention Span Theater" -- is a series of badly filmed, poorly acted and really unfunny blackout sketches that look and feel like something you would find -- and not watch -- on YouTube.
The show starring the comedy duo Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim premiered on Cartoon Networks Adult Swim block in February 2007. Each episode of the show last about 11 minutes and features a non-stop series of silly sketches, ranging from things like Extreme Hackeysack to a local news show hosted by The Only Married News Team (which features a regular cameo appearance by john C Riley as Dr. Steve Brule, the local affiliates health correspondent). The good news is that the sketches last about 45 seconds each. The bad news is that makes each one about 40 seconds too long.
