One of their first pieces was Tom Goes to The Mayor, which made its way into various film festivals. Fueled by Tom’s success Tim and Eric began sending their tapes to their comedic heroes in Hollywood, including Bob Odenkirk who loved what he saw and helped to develop their ideas into a TV show. Through a chance meeting they were able to get their tapes to the senior vice president of Adult Swim, Mike Lazzo. He loved the stuff and they were immediately given the funds for development. Tim and Eric used some of the money to move to Hollywood where they worked on Tom Goes to The Mayor for a two season, 30 episode run.
Tim and Eric continued to collaborate – their next show was Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, which aired for five seasons on Cartoon Network. (2017 marks the 10 year anniversary.) They also created a spin off show starring John C. Reilly called Check It Out! With Dr. Steve Brule (four seasons have aired thus far). In 2012, Tim and Eric co-wrote, directed, and starred in their first feature film, Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie, produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay.
In 2014 Tim and Eric collaborated to create Tim and Eric’s Bedtime Stories, a new anthology series with a dark stylistic departure from their usual comedy. Season one featured guest stars, including John C. Reilly, Bob Odenkirk, Jason Schwartzman, and Zach Galifianakis. Subsequent specials aired on Cartoon Network in fall 2015 with more to come.
Tim and Eric have directed commercials for global clients including Google, Old Spice, Jet.com, Milk, Wrigley’s, Totino’s, Red Stripe, GoDaddy (featuring Jon Lovitz) and a Boost Mobile commercial that premiered during Super Bowl XLIV. Their faux-infomercial for GE’s new smart LED bulb featuring Jeff Goldblum earned them One Screen’s award for Best Branded Content in addition to a Gold Pencil for Film: Consumer Television and Silver Pencil in Video Craft: Scriptwriting at the 2015 One Show. The duo returned to the Super Bowl in 2015 with a highly lauded spot for Loctite super glue. Their HomeAway spot earned Bronze at the 2016 CLIO Awards.
Alongside Dave Kneebone, Tim and Eric run Abso Lutely Productions, the production team behind some of today’s most exciting and original television programs, including the aforementioned Tim and Eric’s Bedtime Stories and Check It Out w/ Dr. Steve Brule, plus W/ Bob & David, Comedy Bang! Bang!, Nathan For You, The Eric Andre Show, Decker, amongst others. Abso Lutely also produces the film review web series “On Cinema”.
Alongside Gregg Turkington, Tim created and stars in Decker and “On Cinema,” now in its 9th season. Decker: Unclassified airs its fifth season on Cartoon Network this spring (the first 3 were exclusively for web). Decker: Unclassified is an action packed powerhouse that follows Agent Jack Decker as he subverts terrorist plots against his beloved America.
Tim has acted in “Eastbound & Down,” “The Comedy,” “Bridesmaids,” “Portlandia,” and other films and television programs.
Additionally, Tim is a musician. He released his first solo album, In Glendale, in May 2016 on Jagjaguwar imprint Rado Records. Prior to this, he released three albums under the name Heidecker & Wood with Davin Wood, composer of all things Tim and Eric. He actively writes and releases music about the current political landscape, including songs titled “Trump Talkin’ Nukes,” “Trump’s Pilot,” and “Richard Spencer,” to name a few.
Following the 2016 DNC & RNC, Tim and Vic Berger released convention specials via Super Deluxe.
Eric directed four episodes of the first season of Netflix’s Emmy Award winning show, Master of None, of which he also stars alongside the show’s creator and lead Aziz Ansari. Season two is coming out in spring 2016.
