"Let's play a game and you scream at me and stuff." Classic.
Openly gay and hilarious Billy on the Street comedian Billy Eichner made his first appearance on The Late Show and, after receiving the above instruction from David Letterman, proceeded to yell his way through an absurd game called "Celebrity Child or Kentucky Derby Winner?" Pilot Inspector? War Admiral? Blue Angel? Moxie Crime Fighter? It is shockingly impossible to win.
The results are laugh-out-loud funny, and it is clear that Eichner's caustic brand of comedy has a new fan in Letterman. "Do you have any more games we can play? I just like being yelled at! It's exciting," says Letterman, and with Eichner in command it's hard not to believe him.

Billy Eichner is the host of Billy on the Street, a comedy pop quiz show on fuse where the titular host accosts New Yorkers with random trivia questions for the chance to win cash prizes, all amidst madcap antics such as destroying a car with Lindsay Lohan or panicking over the end of How I Met Your Mother at strangers while accompanied by Neil Patrick Harris. Despite the show having made it to its third season, an interview on Vulture.com notes that it hasn't gained much traction with gay audiences.
Eichner's thoughts in part on why:
There’s still a lack of awareness about the show in certain mainstream circles, and outside of the independently, culturally minded urban gay man, the general gay population is out there watching Bravo, and I’m not on Bravo. I’m actually in the comedy community much more than I am in the gay community at this point in terms of my public persona — I don’t mean in my personal life. And I think the comedy community is largely a heterosexual community, although it's getting a little bit more gay.
