Call me crazy, but this cringe artist is the total package.
We need to talk about Eric Andre.
In case you didn’t already know, the comedian, actor, and writer is one of the weirdest people on television. The Eric Andre Show, which first aired in 2012 and has totaled four seasons, begins each episode with the comedian passionately destroying of the set. He’s also known for treating his celebrity guests like wet garbage. Lauren Conrad famously walked off the show after Eric Andre “vomited” on his desk and then proceeded to slurp up the fake vomit. The best part of his show is Hannibal Buress, who awkwardly lingers in the background while the guests occupy the only available seat.
I know what you’re thinking. What’s so attractive about eating (fake) vomit? What’s so attractive about smashing your face into a birthday cake? What’s so attractive about making Chance the Rapper sit in a giant cup of coffee as he leaks cream from his mouth?
Maybe his comedy is repulsive, but it’s also pretty fearless. Better yet, Eric Andre manages to offend people in ways they didn’t know they could be offended.
For instance, when he reaped havoc on the Republican National Convention. Angry bystanders were expecting a liberal agenda but didn’t exactly know how to react to his unconventional brand of comedy.
Maybe I’m just a weirdo, but in a world as dark and sinister as ours, isn’t it heart-warming to know that there are heroes like Eric Andre out there, making people uncomfortable?
