GET QUIZZED IN THE FACE

BILLY ON THE STREET is a show on Fuse network (but made by Funny or Die) in which host Billy Eichner asks random people on the streets of New York (and sometimes celebrity guests) sometimes rude, often unanswerable questions for small amounts of money. If he ever approaches you, remember that the best answer is always Meryl FUCKING Streep (who he met, epically, on Watch What Happens Live.)

"Drew Barrymore would not like Goldilocks. She doesn't understand that whole situation!"

It's amazing how he can quickly develop such a good rapport with so many people. Seems like a lot of fun (in a frenetic, breathless sort of way).

Billy on the Street makes me laugh out loud more than any other show on television.

His recent Comedy Bang Bang appearance did little to inspire me to find out more about his stuff, but since it's right here, I guess I will. Thanks!

Reminds me of Nardwuar, albeit not so strange. And, of course, he's engaging more with yrrr everyday passers by.

On the one hand, I wanted to punch him. On the other, I was afraid he was going to be punched. Then I just laughed a hell of a lot.

Yeah, that episode sucked. I don't know if he wasn't familiar with the style of the show or what.

My guess is that he hadn't heard the show and wasn't really up for fighting for time over Matt besser. Or he was drunk and that's what all that Hollywood nights talk was about.

Love the live speed sketching game and when he plays, "Would Drew Barrymore like that?" with Will Farrell.

So wait, the answer isn't Ghostbusters 2?

I love the Quizzed in the Face with Mr. Singh. I think he should be a regular guest.
