Tim Heidecker was born and raised in Allentown, PA. As a freshman film student at
Temple University he met Eric Wareheim. After graduation they continued to work
together on short films and strange bits of comedic nonsense.
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. One of those recipient’s being Bob Odenkirk who loved
what he saw and helped to develop their ideas into a TV show. Through a chance meeting
Tim was 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 the show for
a two season, 30 episode run.
Tim later went on to again collaborate with Eric Wareheim on their next show, the “Tim
and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!” which aired five seasons on Cartoon Network. Tim
and Eric also created a spin off show starring John C. Reilly called “Check It Out! With
Dr. Steve Brule” which has run for two seasons. Tim has also collaborated with Eric on
big budget commercials for brands like Old Spice, Red Stripe, and Boost Mobile..
Most recently Tim completed his first feature film with Eric called “Tim and Eric’s
Billion Dollar Movie” which was produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay. Tim also
made his name known as a dramatic actor in the critically acclaimed film, “The Comedy”
directed by Rick Alverson.
