There's never been a talk show like Adult Swim's The Eric Andre Show. Host Eric Andre (also one of the show's executive producers) destroys his set. He attacks his band. He vomits on his desk. His sidekick, fellow comedian Hannibal Buress, barely tolerates him. He interviews fake celebrities. Real guests are uncomfortable being there. It looks like a public access show from 20 years ago. In other words, its anarchy-minded format fits nicely in Adult Swim's lineup.
The Eric Andre Show, which airs at 12:30 am/11:30c as Thursday turns into Friday, premiered its second season on Oct. 3. Guests this season include Dominic Monaghan, Brian McKnight, Eric Balfour, Henry Rollins and T-Pain.
Andre, whose credits also include Don't Trust the B---- In Apartment 23 and Curb Your Enthusiasm, answered our showrunner survey to talk it up.
