Abso Lutely Productions was founded in 2007 by comedians Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim and producer Dave Kneebone. It began as a means of producing the surreal sketch comedy show, Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! for Adult Swim. Awesome Show’s five-season run gave birth to a dedicated fan community, as well as a spinoff series, Check It Out! With Dr. Steve Brule, featuring John C. Reilly’s recurring character from Awesome Show.
In 2011, Abso Lutely’s partners produced their first feature film, Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie. The film was written and directed by Heidecker and Wareheim and featured appearances by John C. Reilly, Jeff Goldblum, Zach Galifianakis, Will Ferrell, and Will Forte.
By prioritizing the amplification of fresh and unconventional comedic voices, Abso Lutely has since become a destination for ideas that push the boundaries of traditional comedy. Longstanding relationships within the industry have resulted in successful projects with major networks including IFC, Comedy Central, Cartoon Network, and Netflix, as well as spotlighting up-and-coming talents such as Nathan Fielder, Eric Andre, and The Birthday Boys, plus comedy veterans Scott Aukerman, Bob Odenkirk, David Cross, and Andy Daly, to name a few. And as new distribution platforms transform the media landscape, a partnership with Super Deluxe has continued Abso Lutely’s tradition of embracing and developing undiscovered talent.
