Great job!
"The nightmare version of television."
Tim and Eric themselves, in the matter of their show.

A 15-minute long Adult Swim original centered around comedians and video artists Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, the creators of the absurdist cartoon Tom Goes to the Mayor. Known for often skirting the border between comedy and gratuitous absurdity (or worse), and also for recruiting extremely obscure, untalented, and non-telegenic performers as recurring cast members, such as James Quall, David Liebe Hart, and the late Richard Dunn, and sticking them alongside frequent cameos from well-known comedy actors. All of this comes together as what low-budget local public-access television from The Eighties and Nineties would look like if it was made by stoners.

As of 2010, the show's run has ended, replaced by the Spin-Off, Check It Out With Dr. Steve Brule.
