Sketch comedy is a staple of American television, with styles ranging from mainstream to alternative and even experimental forms that target a young, predominantly male audience. Jeffrey Sconce explores the highly experimental approach of Tim and Eric’s Awesome Show, Great Job!, connecting it to the history of metacomedy as playing with comedic form with reflexivity and ambiguity.
