Tim Heidecker (born February 3, 1976) is a U.S. actor, comedian, and one half of the duo of "Tim & Eric," the other being Eric Wareheim. Like Wareheim, Heidecker's comedic style is often conveyed in a very deadpan manner mixed with hints of realism. Heidecker also enacts physical comedy routines along with Eric, as part of their double act.

Heidecker was born in Allentown, Pennsylvania. He attended Allentown Central Catholic High School and Temple University.[1]

Heidecker and Wareheim are the makers, writers, and stars of Tom Goes to the Mayor, a limited animation series that originally aired from November 2004 to September 2006 on Adult Swim. Tim plays "Tom," the confused protagonist of the show. He is presented as a bit of a pushover, a "nice guy who wants to do good things." He brings his ideas to The Mayor (played by Wareheim), who always seems to change or ruin Tom's ideas and leaves Tom worse off than before he went to see the mayor. Heidecker has said that he isn't much like Tom in reality despite their similar names.

Heidecker and Wareheim's latest show, Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, premiered February 11, 2007 on Adult Swim. The fifteen minute show features "live action, sketch, animation, emotions, phone calls, love, etc.", according to their website.

Heidecker starred in a series of films for Absolut Vodka's website with Wareheim and Zach Galifianakis. Heidecker and Wareheim also appeared together on the Adult Swim special, The Young Person's Guide to History as Debt Collectors, in the Season two finale of Mega64 and at the end of the movie Let's Go to Prison.

Heidecker is married to Marilyn Porayko.[2][3][4][5] She has appeared on Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job![6]

Heidecker along with Eric Wareheim appeared on Fox's Talkshow with Spike Feresten on February 16, 2008 and May 16, 2009 and on NBC's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on April 14, 2009.
