I’ve never been a big fan of game shows & trivia (except for the occasional Jeopardy,) but lately I’ve really been enjoying Billy on the Street. If you don’t have Fuse.tv on your cable/satellite programming, then you probably haven’t seen the show. But fret not, because since it’s a Funny or Die program, you can always catch up and watch clips over at their site.
So now that you know how to watch the show, lets get back to talking about what the show is all about. Basically it’s a pop culture trivia show and the host, Billy Eichner, is this quirky, rude, snippy, and often extremely sassy guy who asks random New Yorkers pop culture related questions.
His overall attitude is what makes the show funny in my opinion. I especially love when he is plays the 3-Question game and the answers are subjective. So basically if he asks you who is a better singer, Madonna, Lady Gaga, or Katy Perry, your answer doesn’t matter unless its something Billy would chose. So if he hates Katy Perry and you chose her, then he will get upset and be like “Ugh, why would you chose her?!” LOL, it’s funny watching him get upset.
Usually the trivia questions are enough to make the sure worth watching, but the latest episode included a spoof of James Blunt’s song “You’re Beautiful.” That is one of those songs that received a lot of YouTube parodies, but I think I love Billy Eichner’s version the best. He uses the same melody, but the song is called “You Look Really Good (For You.)” No need to explain the song, because the title speaks for itself; some people just look really good for who they are….lol
Watch the video below & check out some clips from Billy on the Street. If you like trivia or a sassy guy talking to random New Yorkers, then check out the show. The odd reactions & random New Yorkers are enough to keep you laughing.
