I really shouldn't need to tell you guys to watch this show.

Eric Andre, probably best known for being the coffee guy in Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23 offers up comedy fun in a mockery of late night talk shows in the vein of David Letterman. The only twist is, Eric is actually funny. :maybe

Here's one of his opening bits:

His show is comprised of bits where he talks with his co-host Hannibal Buress about nonsensical things such as newspaper articles, "Man on the street" skits, games such as "This or That?", and interviews with both actual and impersonation celebrities. He's actually had on quite a range of celebrities ranging from a roasted chicken with the face of Joe Biden stapled to it to the actual Lou Ferigno and some asian guy painted up like the Hulk. During the interviews Hannibal Buress gets up and stands behind the guest. If the guest is the real person, Eric will commonly do unprofessional things such as eat, dance, and interrupt his guests when they're the real deal. When they're not real Hannibal Burres helps makes the guest uncomfortable alongside Eric, such as when Eric told guest real life Jodie Sweetin she makes him hard just mentioning her name and Hannibal admits to pretending to be her black boyfriend when he watched her on TV. Or when Eric asked James Vanderbeek why he killed that girl in Aruba after having doubles of him, James, and Hannibal come out and mimic their actions.

Here's an example of the game I was talking about.

I considered zero percent of that opening bit funny.

You people and your standards.

Actually, his opening bit tends to grind on you. It's basically the same thing only slightly altered. Eventually it becomes the least liked thing.

lol That part was sort of funny.

But like I said before, the opening might pull a chuckle or two, but ultimately becomes boring and an eye roller. You get tired of that quick. The interviews and man on the street bits are where the show is best.
