Billy Eichner Joins Forces With Seth Meyers For Emmy-Themed 'Billy On The Street': VIDEO


Gay funny man Billy Eichner teamed up with Emmy host Seth Meyers for a television-themed version of his hilarious show, "Billy on the Street." The erratic tenacity of Eichner's questioning and some truly hilarious responses from unsuspecting New Yorkers make this a must-see.

The best moments? Eichner's assumptive pairing of lesbians and "Orange is the New Black," and one woman's unintelligible response when asked "What is this?" about an Emmy statuette.

Bring on the hilarity, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Oh boy. Another post about walking stereotype Billy Eichner.

    Effeminate behavior is no more natural for men who are homosexual--in the absence of an oppressive society that wants to deny them their masculinity--than it is for men who are heterosexual. And the fact that virtually all gay men find a masculine demeanor far more appealling--sexually and otherwise--than they do an effeminate demeanor (and we all know that that is true) just underscores that fact.

    We should not eschew effeminate behavior in order to be more like heterosexuals--we should eschew it because it is unnatural and because it is unattractive (to ourselves and each other apart from what straight society thinks) and because, above all, eschewing it is a form of rejecting homophobia and asserting our natural place among men as equals.

    Why some of you want to cling so tenaciously to behavior that is a badge of oppression and shame, that practically nobody regards as attractive, and that brings such grief upon those who engage in it, is beyond me. I guess it is because it is so deeply entrenched in some that they really and truly believe that it is "just the way they are" rather than a reflection of the low self-esteem that results from surrendering your claim to masculinity and all the respect that goes with it. Or because they just think it would be too hard to change.

    But the change has to take place and the sooner it does, the better off we will be, not because straight society wants us to (indeed, many of them would prefer for us to continue to behave effeminately so that they can continue to isolate us socially and perpetuate homophobia), but because it is in our best interests to do so.

  6. I wonder if I get in early enough, if I can turn the tide from having this Trollroad comments section being all about the trolls and, instead, be about what the post is about.

    It's an experiment.

    But we all know where this is going, don't we?

  8. Rick - You should be able to do better than that.
    Most of life these days is "unnatural." It is not an intrinsically bad thing. Moreover, you cannot cite anything scientific that connects certain behaviors that you deem masculine as connected with male gender.
    You find certain behaviors effeminate and ergo unattractive. So what? A lot of things are unattractive. People don't feel the need to change them. Moreover, some find a behavior attractive while another does not.
    Try working on the necessity of real men for society, or other reasons that are not all about what makes you hot.

  9. @ Rick, I am so sorry that you feel the way you do! Since when do you get to dictate how a person acts? Your lack of intelligence shines brightly when you rant as you did! Can't we just accept that a person has the right to act as they feel comfortable? Pretending to be something else is what causes conflict from within, and does everything to lower self esteem!

    Be who you are, NOT what anyone else says you must be!!!!

  10. billy eichner is hilarious. love me some billy on the street!

    and remember, dear readers: whenever a gay man complains about "effeminacy" what he's really saying is "because my dad was ashamed to have a gay son."

  11. Poor Rick, all that useless reparative therapy his parents made him go through. And the speech therapy to get rid of the lisp. I'd be a bitter old queen to if I was her.
