Eric Andre is the creator and host of Adult Swim’s hit series The Eric Andre Show, currently in production on its fifth season. This summer, Andre lends his voice to the hyena ‘Azizi’ in Disney’s re-imagining of The Lion King, from director Jon Favreau; he also stars in the upcoming comedy Bad Trip, which he produced and co-wrote with his director (Kitao Sakurai) from The Eric Andre Show.
With an already proven stand-up act, Andre decided to break into the world of late-night talk shows. But, of course, he brings his own flare to what is otherwise a very organized and predictable late-night routine. Unlike his counterparts, Jimmy Fallon or Conan O’Brien, Andre’s unrelenting and constantly over the top humor puts some of his guests on The Eric Andre Show into situations they never thought they would end up in. “The Eric Andre Show” is a live-action comedy television series that premiered in May 2012 on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim.
Andre recently starred on FXX’s Man Seeking Woman for three seasons with Jay Baruchel. He was also a series regular on ABC’s Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt. 23. Andre was recently seen on the big screen in Rough Night, with Scarlett Johansson and Kate McKinnon. His other film credits include Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, with Andy Samberg, and The Internship, with Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson.
