STARS HIT THE STREET!
The outrageous antics of the hilarious hybrid comedy-game show Billy on the Street escalate on the season five premiere, which finds host Billy Eichner (and guest Jon Hamm) asking random New Yorkers: “Would you have a threesome with me and Jon Hamm?” The second episode finds an undercover Seth Rogen holding the camera for a segment called “Death Rogen,” in which Billy approaches passersby to inform them that Seth has died “so that Seth can experience what their reaction is while they’re still around.” The willingness of celebs to be in on the joke — even when they’re the punch line — is part of the show’s appeal, but it’s often the unwitting New Yorkers who get the biggest laughs. And then, of course, there’s Billy himself, whose absurdly intense interrogations continue to generate hilarious reactions even as he becomes increasingly recognizable. “I knew it was a prank because you’re Billy on the Street,” says one starstruck fan. Billy’s reply: “You’re damn right I am!” — and then he storms off in a deserved victory lap.
Billy asks Seth: “Are you sick of James Franco saying he’s gay?”
Jon Hamm on the scene!
