One day I was kind of board and watched one of Eric Andre’s skits about Signfield on YouTube. It was a bit funny and reminded me of The Tom Green Show. So I decided to give the Eric Andre Show a watch on Hulu and binge the whole show. Even though today prank videos are hard to do and be kind of mean if you are not careful. Or you could get in trouble, hurt badly, or nearly killed.
It felt like when watching this I was also getting the Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job vibe. Where the jokes can be mindless filler or anti-comedy at times but it doesn’t feel like they didn’t know how comedy works. I’m probably just venting since Big-O Season 3 died for Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job and there was this comment about Tim and Eric, that “Not enough pot in the world would make that show funny”.
There was this one sketch where Eric Andre did a “Reverse Streaking” at a nudist resort. Also, another sketch where his friend tried different pretzel brands and that made me think of my mom since she likes pretzels as well, or used too.
In the end, it feels like Eric Andre is trying too hard to be the next Tom Green. Also like I said about prank videos is that they can be dangerous at times. For me, I at least ask for permission if I do that kind of video in stores. I remember I went to this hardware store to try and do a little video about caulk there to do a “Caulk in the crack” joke. They said no and I’m glad I at least ASKED before doing that because you can get in a lot of trouble and maybe arrested. If you want to watch this, fine, season 5 is coming soon and we will see what Eric Andre has in store this time.
