jalapenojck895 karma

Where does the character of Billy on the Street end and Billy Eichner begin? Do you think it's hard for people to seperate you from the guy yelling about Meryl Streep? Is this an issue with friends and dating?

billyeichner3207 karma

I think with all of my other appearances - Difficult People and all the talk shows etc people now realize its a character. And if they dont they are stupid. I have many friends and dates, I am very sexy and popular.

kevinpalmer859 karma

Your Grinder bit on Conan was hilarious. Is that something is staff brings to you or did you have a hand in crafting it?

billyeichner415 karma

He was WONDERFUL.

stttgttt338 karma

Hey Billy, the "Bob Dylan or Anal" segment you did was one of the funniest episodes I've seen...but why restrict yourself? Anal WITH Bob Dylan?

billyeichner685 karma

Then I would deserve the Nobel Prize.

unomachine282 karma

Billy, my favorite segment of yours is "Does Shakira Know What This Is?" with Patton Oswalt. I have watched it probably over 30x. My question to you is: Why are you possibly the funniest gay of all time?

billyeichner1007 karma

Why funniest "gay"? Don't marginalize me!!! #TrumpsAmerica

fawltywiring254 karma

Did you have any idea that Seth Rogen's mom was going to tweet about your segment with him or was that a surprise?

billyeichner443 karma

I hope DP gets to the UK very soon but haven't heard anything! Loved filming Donna's wedding party on P&R. And Aziz made me do the "She Drove Me Here!" line over and over cause he loved it so much haha - He's on Billy on the Street in a few weeks!

HeilKeingBeilGroo106 karma

haydterade99 karma

I love Billy on the Street and Difficult People and all of the Craig scenes on Parks and Rec so much and I think you'll be the funniest person on Earth once Martin Short dies.

My question: Would Drew Barrymore like this new season of Billy on the Street?

billyeichner233 karma

Yes but she would forget when its on

Hi Billy! You're stupid hot. How do you keep your voice healthy?

billyeichner131 karma

Well thank you...and nothing really...sleep as much as I can

countess_meow74 karma

First I wanted to thank you for tweeting about the upcoming election for Senate in Louisiana. To stay local... Do you think Elena could get David Duke to change his views?

billyeichner187 karma

youre welcome! and god i dont know...i guess if anybody could...david duke can suck my dick

marose1663072 karma

How do you feel now that Trump is President-elect? I know that you supported the #imwithher campaign

billyeichner382 karma

He makes me sick and his comrades are even worse - its a nightmare I am prepared to fight!

gabscer64 karma

You should sing more often on TV, have you thought of segments on Billy On The Street where you could show off that voice?

billyeichner111 karma

I would love to sing more, not sure I'd do it on Billy on the Street though...but you never know!

TheRiseOfMaths54 karma

Thanks for doing this! I'm a big fan. Difficult People is hands down the best original program on Hulu. You're fantastic and the writing is incredible.

You were stellar on Parks and Rec, my favorite side character. Do you have a favorite moment from that show? Did you learn anything from that cast that you apply towards your projects/career going forward?

Thanks, again!

billyeichner77 karma

It was a very relaxed set so i guess I learned that things dont always need to be frantic to be good...not always my go to philosophy haha...

R1ckJamesBitch52 karma

Sometimes when I see you play the game "for a dollar," you don't give the person a dollar even though they answered correctly. Are you pocketing the money?

billyeichner66 karma

Ha no

pizzasafety47 karma

Some of my favorite segments are the ones where you get really political eg, "Mark Twain or Eddie Murphy" and "Queen Latifah or a Brave Person". Do you get any pushback on that stuff from the network? Will there be more in store this season?

billyeichner116 karma

No thankfully - I have final cut on the show - and yes we played "Immigrant or Real American?" last week and there are more coming up

caltrask5546 karma

Billy, I am such a HUGE fan of Difficult People. Any word on S3?

billyeichner120 karma

They are writing it now - we start shooting in March!

JohannaKoo45 karma

How is Elena doing after the election? I saw the clip where she said she might kill herself if trump were elected. Also, was she ever able to get rid of her phone stalker?

billyeichner87 karma

She's ok. She' a survivor and she'll be on Billy on the Street for the first time this season next Tues!!!

rdlenix44 karma

You bring so much joy into my life and after moving to NYC it has been my dream to get screamed at on the street by you! Excited by all you have achieved and look forward to more.

What would you say your greatest life philosophy is?

billyeichner91 karma

Hmmm....trust your vision and fight to the death for what you want

sandypassage39 karma

Was that Nas moment as awkward as it looked?

billyeichner99 karma

yup

thaliagrace9237 karma

Hi Billy! Love the show. I have two questions: 1. Do you reach out to celebrities to be on your show or do they approach you to be on your show? 2. Have you thought about doing a segment with Ellen DeGeneres? I think you two would be really great together!

Sending love from Canada :)

billyeichner92 karma

  1. A mix of the two.
  2. Would love to shoot with Ellen! I'll be on Ellen for the first time in Jan!!! So excited.

easinelephant30 karma

For a dollar would you play the kazoo during a Kenneth Branagh monologue?

billyeichner53 karma

Meh probably not

DontPanicDent27 karma

Hey Billy! Been a huge fan of yours since you were on FoD and covered Madonna at the Super Bowl. Any chance for a Billy on the Street and Impractical Jokers crossover?

Please say no.

Also, you're super talented beyond berating people for their pop culture/personal opinions, do you have any desire to do any serious/dramatic roles on stage or on film?

Thanks!

P.S. Send Elena my love!

billyeichner42 karma

wow, thank you!! As for IJ...no.

And yes definitely want to take on some other roles when time allows!

A huge media conglomerate gives you a nearly blank check to make some kind of art. (Book, movie, tv show, painting, poem, no limits) what do you make?

YukonColinius2 karma

When did you get so buff? ;)

billyeichner3 karma

Last Tuesday

ATerribleNerd2 karma

As someone who's seen you perform in various roles on tv but has never known who you are, I have now binged every publicly available episode of both Difficult People as well as Billy on the Street and now follow you on twitter.

My question is, in your opinion, why is it only now in the last year and a half that you're popularity and relevancy has skyrocketed?

billyeichner3 karma

not sure...a lot of different, unique and well reviewed projects all happening at once i guess, thankfully...

floridadude1232 karma

You once approached me for one your bits on the street, and I didn't make the show.

I presume that you cut out anyone who disproves your point or kills your punchline?

billyeichner6 karma

well yeah if its not funny or you're boring you get cut

floridadude1232 karma

But I really wanted that threeway. False advertising.

billyeichner2 karma

lol

Billeigh7242 karma

Hey Billy, it's Billy, and I love you. BOtS and DP are my favorite shows. Wondering if you have reached out to any celebrities to come on either show who turned you down? Name names please :)

billyeichner3 karma

Oh yes many! Lol

coreymaceachern2 karma

If Joan Rivers came back to life for one day and she turned on the news and saw what was going on, what do you think she would say and how do you think she would react?

billyeichner5 karma

i think she'd make fun of everyone involved on both sides...she was friends with Trump so that wouldve been interesting...
