This week, Billy Eichner brought what we were all least expecting to his show: meaningful commentary. Eichner’s Billy on the Street persona generally strays from heavy-handed critique in favor of subjective emotion. This week, however, when paired with the more viral late-night host and YouTube star James Corden, Eichner delivered some pretty straightforward satire of internet humor.
Eichner and Corden, desperate for attention, mimicked a few of the internet’s most popular shows. Corden’s Carpool Karaoke was replaced with “Curbside Conga Line,” and Seinfeld’s Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee was replaced with “Comedians Sit In Silence With Chrissy Teigen.” Eichner mocked some of the quirks that make videos go viral, quipping, “It doesn’t have to be good, it just has to autoplay on Facebook,” and “Tell your grandma to watch my video,” only to finally question whether “Curbside Conga Line” is “too sophisticated.”
Later in the episode, Eichner is joined by TV fan Brittany to play “Taraji Jim Henson.” Finally, Eichner is joined by Gotham star—and Billy’s real life best friend—Robin Lord Taylor to play a brand new obstacle course called, “Can You Separate the Art from the Artist?”
