Ever since its debut two years ago on Adult Swim, the Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! has attracted dozens of celebrity cameos—Michael Cera, John C. Reilly, and John Mayer, to name a few—all eager to take part in the show’s nonsensical style. Imitating the poor quality of low-budget public-access television to hilarious effect, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim (Tom Goes to the Mayor) have done everything from hysterical music videos with Ben Folds to skits with Zach Galifianakis (dressed in white robes and women’s retro wigs) to hosting cat film festivals and crank-calling Macy’s. But how will they pull off these sketches, pranks, musical numbers, and short films live? Whatever it is, we’re sure it’ll be awesome.
