Take a second away from watching Modern Family and Big Bang Theory trying to sweep this year’s Emmy Awards to watch comedian Billy Eichner (Parks and Recreation) and Emmy host Seth Meyers putting on a special edition of the always uproarious Billy on the Street.
Billy Eichner tends to take the scream approach to delivering his jokes and reactions, which you may have noticed if you’ve been watching Parks and Recreation this season, as the comedian has applied this schtick to his role as Donna’s Eagleton counterpart Craig in the NBC comedy series.
The nominations for the 40th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards were announced and CBS came out on top in total nominations, with 50. PBS trailed behind with 44 nominations, and ABC earned 38. For CBS, it was The Young and the Restless that helped it hit the top spot, earning almost half of the network's nominations, with 23. For ABC, it was General Hospital, which secured 19 nominations.
If you're ever in New York and some guy comes running up to you with a microphone and asks you some pop-culture related question in a way that makes you think the fate of the world depends on it, that might be Billy Eichner, the comedian often featured on Funny or Die and star of Fuse' Billy on the Street. If he gets annoyed with your response, there's an even better chance it's him. He has no patience for the wrong answers.
Billy Eichner’s no stranger to hitting the streets with a microphone for our entertainment. This weekend, he visited the Super Bowl to get people’s thoughts on the biggest attraction of the day: Madonna. His enthusiasm is what makes this video so funny. Also his annoyance at anyone not showing enough interest in the Material Girl or thinking “the game” is more important.
