It used to be that man-on-the-street shows were a dime a dozen – that is, until Billy Eichner came along. The host of cult sensation Billy on the Street is known for his signature interview style, which falls somewhere between the gossipy best friend you just met and a rabid attack dog. Each episode of the comedy game show features Eichnerrunning up to strangers on the sidewalks of Manhattan and asking them the most inane of questions like ‘Are you jealous of Beyonce’s success?’
‘Who’s weirder? Tom Cruise or John Travolta?’ ‘Name a celebrity you hate.’ ‘Name 3 famous white people.’ ‘Name three of the seven dwaves.’ We are lovin’ these rapidfire questions Billy are shooting at random passersby on the street – for a dollar! On Entertainment Weekly’s ‘Must List’ for 2 years in a row, the comedy game show sees comedian and Emmy nominee Billy Eichnerprowl the streets in guerrilla fashion, connfronting members of the public with a variety of outrageous pop-culture questions (and verbally attacking them at that.) You’d be surprised by the craziest (and awkwardest) answers people give under duress!
While interrogating the public mercilessly with pointless questions, he is sometimes accompanied by a guest star – expect the likes of Chris Pratt, Sarah Jessica Parker, Will Ferrell, Olivia Wilde, Lindsay Lohan, Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Anna Kendrick and more!
