The show often features special episodes built around a single theme, including "Star Wars" and DC Comics.

Comic Eric André hosts a late-night show that parodies low-budget public-access programs and brings the talk genre to another level -- not in a good way. It features interviews with celebrities -- some really are, and others are impersonators -- and what producers describe as "extreme real-life weirdos" interspersed with "deranged" man-on-the-street segments and just general chaos in the studio. Working with André is apathetic sidekick Hannibal Buress, who serves as the straight man to the hyperactive host.
