Excruciatingly Bad
20 January 2016 | by (Louisiana) – See all my reviews

After watching way more of this show than I would ever wish on the worst of my enemies, torturing myself purely in pursuit of maintaining some degree of fairness, which this abomination clearly never deserved in the first place, I have reached a singular and incontrovertible verdict about why this filth has become popular enough to actually warrant a prime time television spot—mind control. What underlying mechanism of brainwashing has been employed by Eichner and his mysterious allies (likely conducting some sort of social psychology experiment) remains an unknown, as does the question of my seemingly complete immunity to its grasp. What I do know is this—to any sane person, this show is terrible. Relentlessly bad, bordering on being outright painful.

In all seriousness, this show, like Eichner's entire comedic persona, simply fails miserably at everything it tries to be. Eichner attempts to be entertaining with his endless hyperactivity, but instead comes off as exceedingly obnoxious and abrasive. He tries to be clever—actually, really thinks he is being clever—with his "ironic" pop culture references, yet comes off as nauseatingly pretentious, ignorant, and moronic. He tries to bring energy and life to his intrinsically lifeless source material by being being almost aggressive to his guests in his attempted approach at exaggerated humor, but nearly always ends up being annoying, rude, insulting, and condescending—often to extremely talented people who, for whatever weird reason (again, probably mind control), agreed to be on his show.

Whether it has anything to do with who he really is, Billy Eichner's comedic persona is not just unfunny; it is utterly intolerable and repulsive. He does three things well.

One: completely unnecessarily antagonizing people to no comedic end whatsoever. Two: Being extremely obnoxious/inducing migraines. Three: Mind control. Gotta be mind control.
