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.

These new personalities could include a far right pseudo-journalist who runs a conspiracy-theory website, an NPR shirt-wearing caricature that portrays liberal extremism, a British ex-convict, and an Israeli anti-terror expert.
This scripted anthology comedy series presents morality tales from the darkly witty mind of creator and four-time Sundance Award-winning writer/director Bobcat Goldthwait. Each standalone episode mashes up wildly different genres -- from 1970s-era science fiction and psychological thriller to romantic comedy and reality -- to tell a socially relevant story with an imaginative twist, and each tale parodies pop culture norms and exploits the awkwardness of its flawed characters. Or, in the words of Goldthwait, " `Misfits & Monsters' examines accepted truths and hypocrisies of our culture and turns them inside out."
