There’s nothing I love more than Man on the Street reportage, probably because I’ve never been accosted by a Man on the Street reporter before. Still, there’s only one person who could raise the artform to a new level, and that man is Billy Eichner. Host of Funny or Die’s Billy on the Street, Eicher regularly jumps in front of unsuspecting strangers on the streets of New York with a barrage of trivia questions. The best part? Most of the answers to those questions are subjective, and nothing brings me more joy than when Eichner storms off in an angry huff when he doesn’t get the answer he wants. (i’ve taken to imitating him when the same thing happens to me at work!)
Occasionally, Eichner pops up on Conan as a correspondent, as he did this week when he asked some unsuspecting Isralis how they feel about stuff like Iran, nuclear missiles, and, most importantly, Madonna. Imagine a taller, angrier, gayer Triumph the Insult Comic Dog (but without the humping, I assume). Check out the hilarious clip below:
And here’s a bonus video, just for kicks, of Eichner challenging Rachel Dratch to name twenty white people. It’s hard, you guys!
