Billy Eichner Is Still the Best

02.07.12 6 years ago 15 Comments

This past weekend, Conan sent Billy Eichner (“Billy on the Street”) to the Super Bowl. If that sentence doesn’t excite you to an unreasonable degree, I’m not exactly sure what I can do for you. You are beyond help. God bless.

When I first watched “Billy on the Street,” I was a little worried that the schtick would get old for me after a number of viewings. Well I can officially confirm at this point that the answer is “Nope. Not even a little.” I could watch him accost strangers with pop culture questions for hours at a time (and I have). So, to unleash him on the Super Bowl and have him ask football fans — AND PLAYERS! RIGHT AFTER THE GAME! ON THE FIELD! — about Madonna and the halftime show is, simply put, a treasure. He’s like Triumph the Insult Comic Dog if Triumph had STRONG opinions about Kelly Clarkson.

If those two interviewed each other it would be Frost/Nixon of our time.
