The Eric André show recently started season 6 with a chaotic bang. The host called Jon Hamm “the white Idris Elba,” which seems like a logical progression in a season where Diplo is getting his nuts kicked. In other words, expect chaos and nothing else, but how much of that particular brand will we get this season?
Eight complete episodes. It’s not enough for Eric Andre enthusiasts, but it’s better than nothing, obviously, and rest assured there’s plenty of pranking in these episodes. Andrew recently said rolling stone that this season resulted in a record number of Jersey cops being summoned than any other season in the series:
“The very first prank we shot in New York/New Jersey, we had more New Jersey cops called than [at any point in] the whole story of the show. We informed the police department and worked with them beforehand, but this department was so disorganized and corrupt that I almost got shot. It was kind of where I was beating fake cop shit that looked real. Well, maybe I didn’t fuck him up, but he was passed out and I was shoving donuts in his mouth. They almost stopped all production.
From there, Andre had another 40 pranks to shoot for the season, which didn’t bode well, but somehow he got it all done. This season will feature the confused faces of many celebrities, including Natasha Lyonne, Blac Chyna, Raven-Symoné, Diplo and Cypress Hill. Let the outrage begin.
