Eric Andre Performs an Impromptu Monologue on 'Conan'

Here's a clip from Eric Andre's visit to last night's Conan, where he insisted he was a better monologist than O'Brien and was given a few minutes to prove it with some solid jokes and a very supportive audience member. Watch more from Andre's appearance below:

The Punk Rock Comedy of Eric Andre

Both professionally and physically, Eric Andre has paid his dues. From boring commercial work, to thankless standup gigs, to working as a Geico Caveman at live events, Andre has done what it takes to make his dream of a twisted, absurdist, ferocious talk show a reality. The Eric Andre Show brings celebrity guests from all across the entertainment spectrum into a DIY, punk rock interview format that flips the traditional ways of late night talk shows on their heads. The path to success has been paved with constant damage, both to the frequently abused set of the show and Andre's body itself. This willful self-destruction, while incredibly entertaining, serves to [...]

Eric Andre Wore a Peanut Butter Thong to Madison Square Dog Park

Instagram user Brad Frost posted photos and a description of Eric Andre showing up to a dog park in Madison Square Park today, where he took off all his clothes except for a thong made of peanut butter, put his legs in stirrups and had a bunch of dogs lick the peanut butter off. This is most likely a stunt for the upcoming third season of his Adult Swim series The Eric Andre Show, which is filming right now, and it may just be the craziest thing Andre has done yet.

Check out the photos of Andre (who has long hair now) at the dog park below:

Eric Andre was a guest on Friday’s Arsenio, where he shared the news that The Eric Andre Show, his intentional train wreck talk show parody costarring Hannibal Buress, has been renewed by Adult Swim for a third season. He also made a come-on-down The Price Is Right-style entrance, read a few network notes from Standards and Practices, and pranced around wearing nothing but his doughnut print sweatshirt and R. Kelly lady underwear, effectively transforming Friday’s Arsenio into a typical episode of The Eric Andre Show.

Eric Andre Gets Naked (Again) on Natasha Leggero's Web Show

Natasha Leggero may have the only talk show that's nearly as crazy as Eric Andre's. Andre visited Leggero's JASH web series Tubbin' with Tash this week and proceeded to get naked, which has become his talk show go-to but makes more sense here because this talk show is set in a hot tub.

Pete Holmes and Eric Andre Talk About the Places His Penis Has Been

Eric Andre was on The Pete Holmes Show last night, and naturally the conversation turned to an awkward interaction involving Andre's penis and the potential upsides of dying on live TV. Below, check out their Yo Mama-off (in which they also discuss Andre's penis, as I think it's in his contract for it to come up in every talk show appearance) and their discussion about their early careers.

Eric Andre Showed a Never-Before-Seen Sketch From His Show on 'Conan' Last Night

Talk show guest extraordinare Eric Andre stopped by Conan last night, and though he managed to keep all of his clothes on this time, his appearance was still plenty entertaining. For one thing, he showed a sketch that Adult Swim wouldn't let him air because apparently McDonald's doesn't like it when you imply Ronald McDonald is staggering drunk. Below, check out his brilliant entrance and his undeniable dance skills:
