TruTV Airing <i>Billy on the Street</i> Marathon on President&#8217;s Day

TruTV is celebrating President’s Day by airing two consecutive hours of their popular pedestrian-assaulting hit show Billy on the Street.

Kicking off the string of episodes will be Billy on the Street: Political Comedy!, a special compilation of the most “politically charged segments” from the show’s fifth season. The special will then be followed by three episodes hand-picked by Billy himself to mark the season’s end.

For those who don’t know, Billy on the Street follows comedian Billy Eichner “as he hits the streets of New York City to test unsuspecting passersby” with hilarious, loud, politically and socially biting trivia. Recent episodes have seen guests like Stephen Colbert, John Oliver, Aziz Ansari and Jacob Tremblay.
