The Eric Andre show is a surreal late-night comedy series on television. It has low-budget sketch comedy and parodies, with Eric Andre as host. However, it was formerly hosted by both Eric Andre and Hannibal Buress. It is a talk show as it interviews celebrities and sometimes impersonators for fun.
The show first aired on Andre Swim, an adult-oriented nighttime cable network, in May 2012. It has 5 seasons, with 53 episodes each. Kitao Sakurai and Andrew Barchilon are the directors of the show. Season 5 was premiered in October 2020, and in May 2022. However, Andre Swim announced the season 6 renewal in 2023.
Who Is Eric Andre?
Eric Andre is an American actor, producer, writer, musician, comedian, and host. The 39-year-old actor has been in the industry since 2003 and is still doing projects. The Florida, US, born artist has an Ashkenazi Jewish mother and an Afro-Haitian father. He makes music under the name, BLARP. He is known for the Eric Andre show that he co-writes and co-hosts. Also known for movies like Sing 2, Bad trip, Jackass forever, Michelle vs the machines, and a small role in The lion king (2019), etc. He is also seen in shows like Two broke Girls, Disenchantment and Man seeking Women, etc.
What To Expect From Season 6?
Well, mostly the same things The Eric Andre show is known for, surreal comedy, and sketch comedy. Somewhat of the talk show elements. Expect the same “Bebop Bounce” by Andrea Litkei & Ervin Litkei from seasons 4 and 5 as the opening track which replaced “Happy Happening” by Mathieu Blossier from seasons 1 to 3. What not to expect is Hannibal Buress, who left the show after season 4 for some personal reasons. He stated that he was tired of this format and wanted to do something new. Eric conveyed that he was sad that his old friend was leaving but wished him luck and had to replace him.
Hannibal is replaced by Blannibal, who will be played by James Hazley. James is fairly new to the industry it seems and has done work like An Hour to Kill (2018), Get All You Can (2020), etc. So it would be safe to assume he would not be joining the show for season 6, although there is no official information or announcement about this. A few of the guest names have been revealed which are Natasha Lyonne, Jon Hamm, Jaleel White, and Blac Chyna. Additionally, Lil Nas X, Raven-Symoné, Diplo, Daymond John, Meagan Good, Rico Nasty, Waka Flocka Flame, and Lil Yachty are also included. So expect some chaotic stunts, bizarre set-ups, hidden camera pranks, weird celebrity interviews, and as Andre himself says a jam-packed season.
Where To Watch The Show?
The series can be watched on a lot of places including The adult swim channel, the Adult swims official website, HBO Max and Hulu. Season 6 would be premiering in 2023 and could be streamed on these platforms.
