BILLY ON THE STREET with Billy Eichner and Big Bird, AUAA!
It's Billy on the Street here, with my friend Chrissy Ferraro who helps Big Bird with his words! We had a new video come out today, with the First Lady. It's on Funny Or Die and we're here to answer questions about it.
We've run out of time guys! Thanks for joining me and my friends from Sesame Street for this AMA and check out my new Billy on the Street video with the First Lady Michelle Obama and Big Bird on FunnyOrDie.com!
They need to bring that damn ride to AMERICA!!!!
Billy, how did you end up on Parks and Recreation? Craig is absolutely one of my favorite characters on the show.
I had a mtg with Mike Schur and Dan Goor who created the show and they were fans and asked me to do it!
What did Elena REALLY MEAN when she said you could eat lots of other stuff too?!
i never have any idea what she's talking about
How come you keep bringing back Elena, who is amazing, but not Mr. Singh, who was also potentially equally amazing?
Sadly we can't find Mr Singh - we've tried!!!
Did FLOTUS require any rehearsal/run-through? She seemed super natural in her responses so I imagine it was all first-take stuff, but with the need to control image, I wonder...
Also, Big Bird was killin' in on Facts of Life.
We never rehearse anything on Billy on the Street and we didn't rehearse with FLOTUS! She had no idea what I was going to ask her! She was awesome.
- Do another another Billy on the Street with Amy Poehler. That's not a question.
- What's your very best life advice?
Don't be a moron.
Billy what effect do you feel your handing out of dollars willy-nilly is having on the economy?
It solved it
Have you visited Elena's sisters erotic art gallery yet?
No but I am very much looking forward to it!
What is your favorite song from Jesus Christ Superstar?
Have you gotten any closer to having Meryl on BOTS? i know you've met her -- did you pitch it to her?
it remains a dream.
Is Parks and Rec going to make me cry tonight?
Maybe not tonight...but get ready for the finale next week! :(
Hey Billy! I think you're very very funny! Thank you for being very funny. What are your opinions on Natalie Portman? Why does she not seem relevant right now? Do you wish she was relevant?
She took a break - she was entitled to!! She's coming back!
Billy, when is judge judy going to be on the show? And away. we...........GO!!!!!!
Ohhh I would love that!!!
Hello, Mr. Eichner. I admire your work! Which was your favorite moment from Billy on the Street? I always loved you playing in the rain with Seth Meyers or Elena saying, "Whertle." Additionally, when will the blue t-shirt be on display in the Smithsonian?
Yes I am a part of American History
What would be your ideal date night with Elena?
i already spend plenty of time with her
Kanye West or Taylor Swift?
Now that you've been in a grocery store with Michelle Obama, when will you be doing an episode with Joe Biden on a TRAIN?
one can dream.
Why does everyone hate Blair?
Billy can you call my professor and scream at him? Also why can't i find your tv show anywhere on the internet?
All episodes are on Amazon!
Elena is hilarious. Her comedic timing is perfect? Where did you find her?
I just ran into her on the street one day while filming Billy On the Street and she was on the show!
Hi Billy. Big fan! You're YouTube videos are addicting. My favorite moment is your guest appearance on Letterman when you got him all jazzed up during a round of questions.
So you're show is set in NYC, but have you ever considered going to other cities such as Philadelphia?
Yes i really want to travel with the show for the new season!
Will you be on bobs burgers again?
Yes but not sure of the date
Billy: what am I supposed to do with my life now that I know you know so many lyrics to 'I don't want to miss a thing'?
you should be grateful!
Hey Billy big fan! You are definitely my favorite person on social media.
My question is, how soon can we expect a Billy and Elena sex tape? And also is Elena the heir to your show?
Also very excited for your new show!
Hi Billy, Thanks for doing this AMA. Can you yell at me over the internet? Please?
You and Nick Offerman should do a Billy on the Street about meats. I guarantee at least one person would watch it. Do you accept the challenge?
When Is Kristen Wiig gonna be on Billy on The Street?!!
that's a good question!!!
Billy, why aren't you as mad at Murray Monster for blatantly ripping off "Billy on the Street" with his entire "What's the Word on the Street" segment on Sesame Street as you were with Burger King ripping off your show for a commercial?
Billy! Totally love you! What does amy poehler or nick offerman smell like??
Peaches and bacon!
Billy, IS TWITTER A FORCE?
And can you tell us a little about your experience working on A NEW BRAIN during your time at Northwestern?
Oh, I loved A New Brain - huge William Finn fan here.
Hi Billy! Thanks for doing this AMA! Love Billy on the Street and loved your Emmy's segment with Seth Meyers. You always have me laughing with all you do, especially as Craig on Parks and Rec.
My question: if you could've been any other character (besides Craig) for an episode of Parks & Rec, who would it be and why??
hmmm...i think it would be really fun to be April or Andy
What's the status of "Difficult People"?
we're filming in it NY right now - premieres on Hulu later this year!
Billy, I think you're hilarious and only discovered you through your YouTube channel, how else do I find you?
WELL...the Billy On the Street TV show will have its 4th season on Tru TV and TBS later this year! We've had 3 seasons on the Fuse network which are available on Amazon and now we're moving to Tru!
What does Elena think about the situation in Syria?
I'm sure she'd have a lot to say about it
Billy, So awesome that you had a segment with First Lady Michelle Obama! Who are the top 3 people you would love to have on the show that you haven't had on yet?
Thanks for doing the AMA!!
Well hard to say top 3 but 3 I would love are Meryl, Tilda and Mariah.
Billy, will you ever be as famous as Madonna? ;)
No one will be
Have you considered taking BOTS to a different street in a different city?
YES - hope to to go to a new city this year!
Billy I just really want to know... Left shark or Right shark?
Left, Always Left.
Billy, you're stranded on an island with a celebrity of your choice, who do you pick and why?
Have you ever been physically assaulted by a surprised New Yorker that you yelled at?
an old woman slapped me across the face in my youtube days but thats it
Billy! Such a huge freakin' fan. Has there been a "For a Dollar" contestant whose response just made you crack up?
Oh yes many...the woman who thought Denzel Washington was the Phatom of the Opera killed me
What are your favorite fruits and vegetables?
I like peaches, nectarines and the occasional plum.
Who is your favorite Hedwig? JCM right?
Oh Yes - unstoppable! the best!

Big Bird is timeless.
Billy! Who is your favorite Sesame Street Muppet?
Big Bird, obvi
What's your favorite ride in Disney?
Soarin' over CA!
Billy - if you could be a character on Sesame Street, who would you be?
That's a tough one...She's not on Sesame St but I would like to meet Miss Piggy
My wife and I are huge fans of Ratatouille, so of course we loved your rant about it with Patton. We also looked everywhere for references to that at Disneyland the one time we've been, and only found a diorama on Main Street dedicated to it. Lame! HOWEVER did you know about the ride at Disneyland Paris? Maybe pull some strings and have a Billy on the Street segment filmed ON THAT RIDE? I'm sure Disney would be cool about it.
