Renewal announcements can be so boring. The network releases a bland statement saying that it’s excited for “another set of adventures” and then… that’s it. Leave it to Eric Andre to liven up the proceeedings.
The host of The Eric Andre Show, that absolutely absurd late-night talk show on Adult Swim, chose an unconventional way to reveal that his show has been picked up by the network for a fourth season. On last night’s installment of Conan, Conan O’Brien and Andy Richter took baseball bats to a pinata, and out came a half-naked and bloodied Andre, who shared the big news and then plucked candy hanging off his underwear/diaper and threw it in to the audience. Experience it in the clip below—and for advanced exploration of Andre and a world of dada, check out the show’s season 3 finale, titled “Bird Up!”
