Do It This Weekend: Time and Eric, Mosaic, Gasparilla and more

Among Cartoon Network’s diversity of Adult Swim programming is Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!. The 11-minute program created by and co-starring actor/comics Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim (pictured, photo by Pamela Littky) takes the live-action material from their animated show, Tom Goes to the Mayor, and expands upon it with sketches, songs, and faux commercials in the humor-meets-absurdity style of Kids in the Hall or Mr. Show. For a couple of recently famous dudes, they’ve snagged some pretty good celebs guests for cameos, like David Cross and Bob Odenkirk, John C. Reilly, Paul Reubens, "Weird Al" Yankovic, Jeff Goldblum, Rainn Wilson, John Mayer and Elisha Cuthbert. The 2009 "Tim & Eric: Awesome Show Great Job! Tour" makes its way down to St. Petersburg on Saturday. The live show will likely incorporate characters and recreate skits from the ’08 Awesome Show season. Feb. 7, 8 p.m., State Theatre, St. Petersburg, $24, 727-895-3045.
