PaleyLive: An Evening with Billy on the Street
Monday, December 14, 6:30 pm ET
The voluble, high-intensity comedic delight Billy Eichner (Difficult People) has startled, browbeaten, and modestly rewarded (hey, a dollar is a dollar) unsuspecting pedestrians on New York City sidewalks for four seasons now on the hilarious Billy on the Street, currently airing on truTV. Eichner will discuss the production of this unpredictable, convulsively funny look at the tastes and assumptions of uncoached “civilians,” which, in addition to cracking us up helplessly, functions as one of the most honest and unfiltered explorations of our relationship to mass culture on television.
Scheduled to appear: Billy Eichner
