Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim met in college and bonded over what say was a very specific type of humor. From there the duo got their start making songs, skits and videos loaded with pranks, sarcasm and spoofs.

“Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!” is their current series on the Adult Swim cable channel, and they’ve just completed their third national tour. Their shows include skits, digital manipulations, weird songs and cartoons presented in true juvenile fashion. They poke fun at the mainstream comedy world and say they are trying to create a sarcastic, anti-comedy, anti-rock show.

The L.A. Times went backstage with Tim and Eric to make this video collection of still photos and audio from their shows mixed with interviews with the duo themselves and adoring fans. While on tour Tim and Eric performed for sold-out crowds, but the duo say they are still floored that people show up to see them at all.
