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 [...]

Talking with Hannibal Buress About 'Broad City,' Preparing for Onscreen Roles, and His New Standup Special

Hannibal Buress has come a long way from being a writer for SNL and 30 Rock and sometimes a crazy homeless man, enjoying a steady rise to success as both a popular standup and hilarious supporting television player on The Eric Andre Show and more recently Comedy Central's Broad City. His newest Comedy Central project, an hourlong standup special Hannibal Buress: Live From Chicago, airs on the network tomorrow night at midnight, so ahead of its premiere I talked to Buress about how his standup has evolved, his experience acting on Broad City and Seth Rogen's Neighbors, his Comedy Central pilot, the power of "Hannibal's Hands," and how [...]

Eric Andre Models R. Kelly Underwear, Announces Season 3 of ‘The Eric Andre Show’ on ‘Arsenio’

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.

Talking to Eric Andre About Season 2 of 'The Eric Andre Show'

Adult Swim has a lot of strange shows, but none more unpredictable and anarchic than The Eric Andre Show. Created and hosted by comedian Eric Andre, it's a big, fun mess of a talk show that involves Andre and co-host Hannibal Buress tormenting their guests and bringing out weird stuff just to baffle them, with Andre's daring hidden camera segments mixed in. There's nothing quite like The Eric Andre Show anywhere else on TV, and it's a perfect example of a comedian getting to express his weird, weird voice without any creative interference from the network.

I recently had the chance to talk to Eric Andre about his show's second [...]

Eric Andre Set Off Fireworks and Exposed Himself on 'The Jeselnik Offensive'

America's most unpredictable talk show guest Eric Andre is the guest on tonight's episode of Comedy Central's The Jeselnik Offensive, and here's a clip of him setting off illegal fireworks on the show. See below for video of the other crazy thing he does on the show tonight: pulling down his pants in response to a joke from fellow panelist TJ Miller:

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:

Video: Eric Andre Wants to Be Your MTV VMA Host

Comedian Eric Andre (Don't Trust the B, Adult Swim's The Eric Andre Show) released this video today via the YouTube channel JASH. It's his audition to be host of the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards (or the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards, as he jokes in the video), and you can use the hashtag #Andre4hostVMA13 to support the cause. It would lead to the most unpredictable VMAs ever, if this video, his Adult Swim series, and his captivating appearance on Attack of the Show! last year are any indication.

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:

Season 1 and 2 of 'The Eric Andre Show' Are Online for Your Viewing Pleasure

If you haven't gotten into The Eric Andre Show yet, you need to put aside whatever you're doing and binge watch the first two seasons of this insane and incredible anti-talk show co-starring Hannibal Buress. If you've already gotten into The Eric Andre Show, Adult Swim has made it easy for you to watch every episode another ten times, because nothing's better on a slow Friday afternoon than a "Hannibal's Hands" segment.
