The Eric Andre Show: Why This Ritzy Season Is “The Best Yet”


When it involves the friends on the present, I at all times assume again to James Van Der Beek calling the expertise a “fever dream.” Were there any interactions off the digicam with friends this season that caught out to you?

It’s far more thrilling on digicam for my present, than off digicam. Oh, the perfect was, I forgot about this, so we had Robin Givens on the present. She’s an actress, she’s been round for a number of a long time. She was married to Mike Tyson at one level. And I’m lighting her up, so we’re dropping cockroaches from the ceiling, and now we have maggots popping out of meals. The present is sort of a haunted home. So she’s freaking the fuck out, and her publicist, or her agent I feel, is fucking pissed. I didn’t know this on the time. I’m in entrance of the cameras interviewing her. My second AD informed me, her agent is operating round, we don’t let any of their brokers or publicists on the stage whereas we’re rolling, as a result of we don’t need them to cease the interview.

So my second AD and my first AD are operating this girl round, her pissed off agent, they’re operating her round in circles. She’s like, “End this interview now, how do I get to the studio?” My second AD goes, “Go by means of that door, take a left, take a proper,” after which they’re simply sending her round in circles. She comes out, ‘I went by means of that door.’ They’re like, ‘All proper, go exterior, right here’s a shortcut, undergo the elephant door, go right here.’ And they’re simply sending her round to locked doorways and across the constructing, simply operating laps across the constructing, whereas I’m dropping maggots from the sky in entrance of Robin Givens. She was so pissed. Yeah. We positively bought the discharge kind forward of time on that one.

Are you guys on the level the place, for essentially the most half, the friends know or not less than have some sense of an concept of what they’re getting into? Or are you continue to catching individuals off guard?

We purposely attempt to get friends that do not know what my present is, who I’m, what Adult Swim is. Every from time to time we do, however we simply gentle their ass up. You know what I imply? I feel even when you understand the present, when vermin and pestilence are exploding out of the desk, you’re nonetheless going to have an incredible response. So it’s foolproof in that approach. But yeah, we positively attempt to not get hipper, youthful friends. We attempt to keep over 40. So there’s a particular age restrict to my fan base. Not on a regular basis, some middle-aged bands and even older followers, however for essentially the most half the fan base is millennials, gen Z
