Billy Eichner’s ability to generate spontaneous, impulsive energy with his celebrity guests on Billy on the Street is second only to his ability to produce ever-more-outlandish presents for them. A new video rounds up all of Eichner’s best gifts, from Cotton Mandy Patinkin to potholders embroidered with Brokeback Mountain quotes, and captures some of his guests’ best reactions.

“This is amazing!” Tina Fey laughed in a mix of delight and shock when Eichner presented her with marionettes of the cast of Transparent. “Look at Judith Light!”

“Yes! Finally, a puppet version of Judith Light and Gaby Hoffman,” Eichner said.

Eichner’s gifts can range in substance, size, creativity, and effort. While one guest just got $500 in cash, another got a personalized email reading from Charlie Rose. Some even got their gifts personalized. Orange Is The New Black actress Uzo Aduba got her own Dr. Seuss book: We’re Going to Cuba, Uzo Aduba!

Check out the full video above.
