Description

Following the wildly popular television debut of Adult Swim's The Eric Andre Show, the alternative-variety show takes its DIY brand of late night entertainment and punk-rock comedy live on the road. Just like on TV, each spontaneous performance will include musical guests, real and fake celebrity appearances, and all of the demented antics you have come to expect.

The Eric Andre Show may be the most manic and unorthodox late night talk show ever made. The show's traditional talk show format quickly devolves into chaos as its inept and bipolar host Eric Andre (Don't Trust the B In Apt 23) subverts all late-night conventions.

Taking place on a dingy public-access TV channel within an alternate reality, The Eric Andre Show creates its own distorted pop culture universe by conducting interviews with an unpredictable mix of actual celebrities, "fake" celebrities and extreme real-life weirdos. These interviews are broken up with deranged man-on-the-street segments, surreal flashes of inexplicable studio chaos, talk show desk-pieces and the general deconstruction of late night's most beloved tropes in every quarter hour episode.

The Eric Andre Show, produced by Abso Lutely and Executive Produced by Eric Andre, Daniel Weidenfeld (China, IL), Dave Kneebone (Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!), Andrew Barchilon, and Kitao Sakurai, airs every Sunday at 12:30am (ET/PT) on Adult Swim.

Originally from Boca Raton, Florida, Eric André now lives in Los Angeles by way of New York and performs live almost every night of the week. Andre brings a manic energy to the stage, combining autobiographical experiences, politics, and experimental psychedelic rambling. He has been doing stand up and sketch comedy in New York and Los Angeles since 2004, but began his career in Boston while attending Berklee College of Music.

André was a finalist in NBC's Stand Up for Diversity showcase and has also performed at HBO's Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival. Television appearances include Comedy Central's Live at Gotham and Hatin' on '09 on MTV. Recently, he was featured in the documentary/comedy special The Awkward Comedy Show premiering on Comedy Central, and had a recurring part in Don't Trust the Bitch in Apartment 23.
