Eichner announced today: “These 8 new segments will be available for the whole world to see on the Billy on the Street YouTube channel (http://YouTube.com/BillyontheStreetTV …) and ALL MY SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS (Instagram, Facebook and Twitter). Presented by
@funnyordie and @lyft. SPREAD THE WORD!!!! AND AWAY WE GO!!!!!”
Yes, that’s correct. Eichner will star in eight new short-form web-only episodes, from Billy on the Street producer Funny Or Die, in partnership with Lyft Entertainment. He’ll be joined by Emma Stone, Tiffany Haddish, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Kate McKinnon and others. The new episodes will be available on all of Eichner’s social media platforms (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook) as well as the Billy on the Street Youtube channel, Funny Or Die’s social media platforms and FunnyOrDie.com.
“After 5 seasons of the TV series, I knew I wanted to set the show aside in order to create some time in my schedule to pursue other projects,” Eichner said. “Now that those are taking shape, I’m truly thrilled we’ve found a way to bring Billy on the Street back that makes so much sense for this particular show. As we all know, this is a very divisive, anxiety ridden time and I hope these new segments – featuring the most stunning roster of guests we’ve ever had – give people a small burst of joy in their timelines while allowing me to comment on culture and the world at large in the unique way this show allows me to.”
