Billy on the Street's third season premieres on Fuse March 12th at 11:00pm, and here's a sneak peek "lightning round" of Eichner doing what he does best — running around New York City with a microphone like an exasperated crazy person and offering strangers a dollar to hide behind trees and shake their fists while yelling "CAROL!" It's tough work but someone's got to do it.
Billy Eichner, host of Fuse's comedy game show Billy on the Street, received a much-deserved Emmy nomination yesterday.

Big stars like Will Ferrell, Maya Rudolph, and Rashida Jones will be appearing on the show this year, joining Eichner to run around the streets like maniacs. I recently had the chance to talk to Billy Eichner about the new season, the ins and [...]
Fuse has ordered 12 more episodes of Funny or Die's Billy on the Street. So never fear, Billy Eichner will be back on your screen yelling at innocent passersby for their ignorance about Ryan Phillippe by later this year.
