Billy Eichner is officially back making dreams come true in the streets of New York!
Eichner has returned with his hilarious gameshow-esque series Billy on the Street with the first of 8 new segments releasing last week. The new episodes will be released via the Billy on the Street YouTube channel as well as Eichner’s social platforms. The series is being presented by Funny or Die in conjunction with Lyft as well!
In Eichner’s first mission back on the streets, he’s joined by actress Emma Stone. The two race throughout the streets of New York confronting unsuspecting passersby about a highly important topic. Eichner kicks off his first segment back by saying:
“There are so many questions on our minds these days. Will our country always be this divided? Are our civil rights once again at stake? Will the United States continue to alienate our closest allies? Will our president be convicted of a crime? So, we’re about to hit the streets to ask New Yorkers when they think Emma Stone will join Instagram.”
Eichner and Oscar-winner Emma Stone then take off down the street. Hilarity ensues and things get awkward when one unsuspecting New Yorker claims his favorite film from Stone is Harry Potter. Imagine Eichner’s reaction when he realizes the fan is mistaking Emma Stone for Emma Watson. They, later on, encounter a person who tells the harrowing story of how he ended up seeing La La Land five times and another person who is walking down the street nonchalantly eating shrimp cocktail. You can’t make this stuff up!
