Eric Andre is, hands down, the funniest Haitian Jew on the planet! His website is probably the only competition he has out there. It is equal parts awesome, bizarre and just plain weird! He is best known for his live action comedy series, The Eric Andre Show (Cartoon Network/Adult Swim), which parodies '80s low budget public access talk shows. As the show's host, he is hyperactive, dysfunctional and often overreacts during interviews. A typical show will see him destroying furniture in the episode's opening song and acting aggressively towards his crew members. He will often hilariously divert from the script and refuse to read cue cards which results in him stuttering and losing his on screen presence. Sounds chaotic right? Hell yeah, it's chaotic. It's a very outrageous brand of comedy that is so over the top you can't help but come back for more.
Sporting a worn out Wu-Tang Clan shirt, Eric Andre visited Amoeba Hollywood for another awesome episode of What's In My Bag?. He clearly has an eclectic taste in music. From Hip Hop to Rock to World, he has all the bases covered. Eric digs up a cool cassette copy of Pat Benatar's In The Heat Of The Night. An avid fan of Flamenco music, he also finds an LP by a Flamenco group called Flamenco. For good summertime jams, Eric picks up the Afrobeat compilation Ghana Soundz Vol. 2. He grabs a copy of Whitney Houston's I'm Your Baby Tonight and offers a hilarious tip for listening to the album. Check out all of Eric Andre's picks and be sure to catch him late night on The Eric Andre Show.
