I'm not sure this is comedy. It presents itself as a talk show. The
host, Eric Andre, seems to be trapped in the role. The show opens with
Eric absolutely destroying the set. Within seconds, like in a bad dream
the set magically reassembles itself and the show continues, the host,
his defenses momentarily derailed declares, "I'm dying". There is
something that appears to be comedy, but, all the while, the
participants seem to be holding back a pent-up fear and generalized
hostility, if not disorientation. The participants don't quite seem to
be in control, and react to the hidden forces around them with horror.
At one point, the show subjects Andre and his co-host to an insane game
show, without warning, where Andre is drenched with scalding hot coffee
after every question. We seem to be viewing some sort inescapable
closed universe containing nothing but an endless slightly nightmarish
talk show. It feels like a bad dream, half remembered. It feels like
there's some unspeakable horror lurking just off-camera that the people
on-stage can see, but, we can't, and they can only stay safe by
pretending to ignore it.
I like what the show is trying to do, even if it's more unsettling, then funny, much like "Tim and Eric's Awesome Show, Great Job", produced by the same production company. There's just something kind of compelling, here. More so than most of Adult Swim's live action shows. It'll be interesting to see where they go with this.
I'd disregard taking any review into consideration from someone who
says for Adult Swim to play more Family Guy and American Dad.
This show is great, the comedy can be in your face or really subtle and witty at times. Eric Adre's skits are well thought out in my opinion, and Hannibal is one of the funniest co-hosts on any television show I've watched.
The guests are great, the sketches in between the studio shots make me laugh harder than anything. Telling the Tea-Party that they "forgot their masks" was one of the greatest things I've seen on Adult Swim in awhile, and I've been watching since the beginning.
TL;DR-At least give it a shot once, there's not one bad episode
I've been watching adult swim since I was a young buck and they've
managed to surprise me once again by how far they can take comedy away
from the norm. I didn't expect much after watching the commercials but
after I gave it a try, I became addicted. It's unlike any talk show
I've seen before, the discomfort and awkwardness in the guests is
clearly visible, partly due to Hannibal standing behind them during
interviews. The sketches are original and hilarious and the comedic
timing of Eric Andre is amazing. This show is better than Family Guy or
Robot Chicken by a mile. The interview with a grizzly bear is one of
the funniest things I've ever seen in my life.
Eric and Hannibal make a great comedic team, give this show a try.
The Eric Andre show is a parody of every terrible art school party,
every terrible noise show, and every stand-up act that was only
laughable because of how bad it was. These flavors are combined to
create a deconstruction of the talk/skit late-night show that
occasionally ascends to brilliance.
The sublime intro sequence begins slowly but rapidly advances in tempo as mr. andre destroys his set and clothes in an escalating fit of madness before, suddenly clothed again, sitting down exhausted. As a new curtain descends behind him and a fresh desk pushed in front of him the audience is left with the illusion that this act repeats week after week and the show is performed in the expanding refuse of previous sets.
The past year Adult Swim has shown me nothing new or exciting, every show is either competing with Tim and Eric, or mimicking it. Although their style is genius it was gotten a little dry since the billion dollar movie. When i first saw the trailer for the Eric Andre show I was even more disappointed, ready for yet another tim and eric knock off. After watching the premier episode I felt as if I had never laughed before. Everything was unexpected, and completely over the top in a way that nobody has ever gotten close to. I never know what to expect, and the commercials for each episode have entirely no footage from the actual episode. The Eric Andre show refreshed the talk show vibe with original pranks, and a surprisingly deep layers of humor. One must watch each episode 3 or 4 times to really see everything they pack into it. What i'd really like to see is everything that doesn't air.
Let's see... My experience watching the Eric Andre show is a bit hard to describe. After they have been plugging this program for months on Adult Swim, I finally committed myself to watching a couple episodes. On both occasions I am left feeling disoriented. Like I ate acid in a crowded airport or something of the sort. This show's idea of comedy is so random and strange. I love lunatic fringe as much as the next weirdo, but this is really out there. On a positive note, the show does leave me feeling a bit curious to see what other outrageous things they will cook up. Also, Eric and Hannibal have a great chemistry on screen. Its not so bad. I'd prefer it over the likes of Children's hospital or Check it out, but that really doesn't say a whole lot.
This is arguably the worst show on television. I almost never write reviews but this one forced me to do so. I gave the show 15 minutes of my time and I almost wanted to sue Eric Andre for wasting my life. He is the worst "comedian" I have ever watched. I love Adult Swim, but if he does not get taken off of it I will go on strike and encourage many others to do the same. At least push him back to 3am. Giving him a 7.1 out of 10 makes me question all of the reviews from IMDb. I had more faith in whatever group is in charge to not assume the show is funny simply because it is on adult swim. Here is another thing, how about the guideline for the review doesn't force the writer to provide a minimum of 10 lines. I am just sitting here rambling about nothing. I even resorted to watching the Eric Andre show to give me some more material to rant about. The show is awful and again I pray that it discontinues. I envision Hell as someone being forced to watch the entire first season of this show. They don't even have to watch it for eternity just one time that is how bad it is.
What is this? I often find myself asking that same question over and over. The comedy is to in your face and just simply not funny. It's like a sketch comedy show, without the comedy. It's as if no thought goes into these skits. There's no punchline, there's no jokes. Just failed attempts at comedy. The characters are annoying & dull, the production is cheap and the same tag line is used over and over. I don't see how you can find this funny. I haven't laughed once. It's so bad that every time an episode airs I'm forced to change the channel. I mean you have to laugh at pretty much anything to find this funny. I'll stick to the good classic shows. Aqua Teen and Squidbillies.
its funny once in awhile but eric andre isn't subtle or funny in an odd way , he tries Way to hard and does things that blatantly reflect poorly on the African American community , such as: rudely and viciously attacking a republican protest, which wasn't funny at all the people at the protest didn't understand why some guy was yelling at them and crashing their protest, how could anyone find that funny? and he also dressed up like a slave and got chased around a civil war recreant, this was the same situation, he was trying to hard, people at the event didn't understand why he was angrily and loudly crashing a civil war reancment, its just so offensive to minorities, he makes it seem as if black people are holding a grudge against white people, and he refuses to drop race , another time he dressed up a a black abe lincoln and demanded in a strip club to have a big black ass immedietly, i just don't understand how his producers alow all these terrible racist tthings to air, its not so bad that there racist but to add insult to injury ITS NOT FUNNY AT ALL as a matter of fact its just awkward to watch a black man make a fool of himself for no apparent reason.
I am a huge fan of Adult Swim and have NEVER given a bad review over a
show aired on Adult Swim. However, this show is the dumbest, pointless
and most uninteresting show on television. I HATE when I turn on the
T.V. and this show is on. I pray EVERY TIME I do, that this show isn't
on. God, please take this show of the air!!!!!!!! PLEASE!!!!! Maybe
Adult Swim could replace this with more American Dad or Family Guy.
Hell, Daria reruns from MTV would suffice. Or maybe, only have it on
once a month at 1:00PM or something... So the rest of us Adult Swimmers
can game in peace knowing that what we're listing to in the background
isn't The Eric Andre Show!
P.S. THANK GOD ITS ONLY 15 MIN LONG!
