Adult Swim Picks Up Talk Show From ERIC ANDRE and HANNIBAL BURESS
Two new names are about to join the group of late night talk shows. Adult Swim is giving Eric Andre his own show with Hannibal Buress co-hosting.
In a press release it was announced that Adult Swim will begin production on The Eric Andre Show which will premiere in June. The stand up comedian will be unlike most other talk shows. Hannibal Buress will act as Andre's "apathetic co-host" for the show.
The talk show will take place "on a dingy public-access TV channel within an alternate reality, The Eric Andre Show creates its own distorted pop culture universe by conducting interviews with an unpredictable mix of actual celebrities, 'fake' celebrities and extreme real-life weirdos."
Andre isn't a well known name. He will co-star in the upcoming Don't Trust The Bitch in Apartment 23. He's also known for his stand-up work and has done a few bit parts on TV shows. Buress has been a writer for SNL and 30 Rock and recently did a stand-up special for Comedy Central.
Abso Lutely Production will be producing the show. The company is known for making Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!
