Eric Andre made a quick appearance during last night's Conan to make a very special announcement: The Eric Andre Show is returning to Adult Swim for a fourth season. No word yet on when the season will air, but Andre shared the news through the classic "bloody man with candy-covered underwear falls out of a piñata" method.
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 [...]
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 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.
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 [...]
