Billy Eichner is Giving Away Dollars Again in Season 3 Premiere: VIDEO


Gay comic Billy Eichner is back with a new season of Billy on the Street next Wednesday.

Check out his Season 3 premiere 'lightning round', AFTER THE JUMP...

Eichner gets a nice profile in this Sunday's NYT:

“I was a fat, gay Jewish kid, but I was always confident,” he said. “Maybe because I had a good singing voice.” He starred in school musicals, appeared as an extra on “Saturday Night Live” and soaked up everything show business. His bar mitzvah party had giant cutout photos of Madonna and the Phantom of the Opera. He has turned his obsession with fame into his own kind of minor celebrity...

...“No one can do what he does,” said Joan Rivers, an early champion. “The only comparison is the first season of Ali G.” She added that a difference is that Mr. Eichner mixes sweetness with his insanity. “If you yell at an old lady for not knowing who Debra Messing is, no one gets hurt. She can still go shopping.”

News: George Clooney, 'American Hustle,' Carnegie Hall, Jesus Christ

Road LenaAll Kanye all the time: Mr. West takes over Kimmel, says Kim Kardashian deserves a star on the walk of fame.

RoadAndrew Sullivan on the ever-shrinking Republican Party: "There is effectively no Republican party any more. There is a radical movement to destroy the modern American state and eviscerate its institutions in favor of restoring a mythical, elysian, majority-white, nineteenth-century past."

RoadDon't eat cat vomit.

RoadUsher reminds us he still has an impressive six pack.

RoadFed up with government shutdown nonsense, Jon Stewart turns to his wheel of happy stories. One of the options? "Full Frontal George Clooney," complete with a real NSFW image of full frontal nudity (though probably not of George Clooney, by the looks of it).

RoadLena Dunham milks a cow for Billy on the Street.

RoadNew trailer for American Hustle with Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper.

RoadBritish boyband McFly goes camping. Thankfully, Attitude magazine was there to document.

CampRoadQueer Nation NY to protest at Carnegie Hall tonight: "Conductor Valery Gergiev, a longtime friend and supporter of Vladimir Putin, Russia's president, will appear at Carnegie Hall. Gergiev has refused to make any comment on Russia’s anti-LGBT laws. He was honored by the Russian government and the Russian Orthodox Church. Carnegie Hall has not responded to a request to oppose the Russian government’s attacks on LGBT Russians. The demonstration at Carnegie Hall follows a recent action by Queer Nation during the Metropolitan Opera’s Opening Night Gala on September 23. Protesters inside the Met delayed the start of the night’s program, while protesters outside held signs and a giant rainbow flag banner to demand that the Russian government repeal their anti-gay laws. Gergiev led that performance as well."

RoadThe Jonas Bros reunion tour has been cancelled amidst rumors of a breakup.

RoadTwo years since his passing, the ashes of legendary gay rights activist Frank Kamey have still not been laid to rest.

RoadIam Somerhalder kissing and hugging adorable animals.

RoadFor the Bible tells me so? Academic claims Jesus Christ was invented: "Ancient confessions recently uncovered now prove, according to [American Biblical scholar Joseph] Atwill, that the New Testament was written by first-century Roman aristocrats and that they fabricated the entire story of Jesus Christ."

RoadPriorities: the government may be shut down, but the congressional gym remains open.
