A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Billy On The Street is a "person-on-the-street" show that features celebrity guests and lots of pop culture-themed gags. On occasion people don't react well to host Billy Eichner's banter, but the overall show isn't mean-spirited. Teens will be drawn to the celebs and comedy, but it contains lots of swearing ("bitch," "goddamn," "s--t"; "f--k" bleeped), some sexual innuendo, some drinking, and drug references.
What's the story?
BILLY ON THE STREET, the Emmy-nominated Funny Or Die series, is a fun comedy game show featuring comedian Billy Eichner hanging out with with celebs and ambushing folks on the streets of New York to test their pop culture knowledge. In-between one-on-one gags with the likes of Tina Fey, Jason Sudeikis, and Julianne Moore, he runs around (often with his famous guest in tow) to quiz random passersby about music, television, and other related themes.
Is it any good?
From irreverent to just plain kooky, the series features lots of fast-paced banter designed to make you laugh out loud. Billy Eichner is funny in his own right, but the antics of the guest celebs and the reactions of the folks he approaches heighten the experience.
It's not mean-spirited, but there’s some strong -- and sometimes crude -- material here that that won't appeal to everyone. Nonetheless, Eichner, who writes and produces the show, demonstrates a quick wit that is as smart as much as it is humorous. Ultimately, it's just a playful and lively thirty-minute show designed to make you chuckle (and maybe teach a few pop culture tidbits!).
