Interview & Article by Nick Banks & John Evans
David Liebe Hart, the unique entertainer who rose to stardom through his appearances on Cartoon Network’s Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! and Check It Out! with Dr. Steve Brule, is a busy man. It’s no wonder that Hart is one of Tim Heidecker’s and Eric Wareheim’s go-to guys: He is known for his quirky and unusual bits on both shows which explore puppets, aliens, ghosts, and positive messages for children… all through song and choreographed skits. Although he is not always a polished performer, fans are attracted to the raw nature of his delivery and his earnestness. On Awesome Show, David sings about anything from “the importance of staying in school and saying focused,” to how to greet an alien. On Check It Out!, David plays a more exaggerated version of himself who often helps Dr. Brule (John C. Reilly) to have a greater understanding of the supernatural and extraterrestrial world through the use of puppets and songs.
