[[caption-width-right:320:Ladies and Gentlemen! The Eric Andre Show!]]

A talk show that airs on Creator/AdultSwim, hosted by comedian Eric Andre, with fellow comedian Hannibal Burress as co-host.

Well, "talk show" is a loose way of saying it. Eric often goes off on tangents while asking the questions or doesn't really pay attention most of the time. The authenticity of the guests varies: Sometimes they're who Eric says they are. Other times, not even close. Oh yeah, and he has a habit of wrecking the set every episode (though it's always fixed not a second after he finishes). In between segments are sketches of him messing around on the streets.
----
!!Tropes:
* BlatantLies: Some of the guests who aren't who Eric says they are. But he treats them as if they were the real deal anyway.
* ButtMonkey: Eric
* TheCameo: [[FallOutBoy Pete Wentz]] appears [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment for a few seconds]] at the end of the Lorenzo Lamas episode to deliver AnAesop and walk away.
* TheChewToy: Street Correspondent Paul Littleson appears a few times, in all of them, he is being hurt in a mundane but funny way.
* CloudCuckoolander: Eric, Hannibal, and Russell Brand in spades. Some of the guests can act this way as well.
* CouchGag: Eric destroying the set during the introduction sequence has different actions per episode:
** Eric playing with a Ouija board.
** Eric throwing boiling water at a naked man.
** Eric [[RefugeInAudacity removing his teeth with pliers, than making out with a stagehand]].
*** All of these sequences end with Hannibal walking on-set, oblivious to what just happened.
* CringeComedy: Most of the guest segments. Especially Tatanya Ali and Sinbad.
** The street segments in Season 2 take this UpToEleven
* DistantFinale[=/=]DownerEnding: Parodied at the end of the first season. [[spoiler:R.I.P. Eric Andre (19832028)]]
* DudeNotFunny: In-Universe: Hannibal is constantly calling Eric out on this
* GainaxEnding: Nearly every episode and segment ever.
* GenreDeconstruction: This seems to basically be the concept of the show.
** DeconstructiveParody
* InNameOnly: Most of the "celebrity guests", which leads to more confusion as they get more obscure and you actually don't know if it's the real one or not.
** Happens much less often in season 2, which feature mostly actual celebrities with a couple fake ones recurring from the first season.
* MadeOfIron: The shit that Eric puts his body through is ridiculous. It'd be impossible to count how many times he's just been shot.
* MindScrew: Constantly and PlayedForLaughs. Some segments seem particularly [[DavidLynch Lynchian]], such as "Savion Glover", who just ran around screaming with a rotisserie chicken taped around his head and over his face while wearing a wig and breaking things, and....Tap dancing?
* MoodWhiplash: Frequently
* NegativeContinuity: ''To say the least.''
* NonSequitur: Extremely frequent, not just in dialogue but in the many, many {{Big Lipped Alligator Moment}}s per episode, such as a two second cut to Eric running maniacally through the street screaming and holding a chicken.
* RefugeInAudacity: The show ''runs'' on this. Expect constant speechlessness from guests and witnesses to street segments.
* SerialEscalation: Every episode seems to be more violent and destructive than the last.
* ShoutOut: Many to LiveActionTV/TwinPeaks in the second season, such as the change to red curtains and the statue from the Black Lodge, and a segment where Eric [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill empties two whole clips of bullets]] into Hannibal mid-monologue, looks straight at the camera, and asks "Who killed Hannibal?" After which it segues into a parody of the Twin Peaks intro.
* StraightMan: Hannibal
* StylisticSuck: Everything about the show. The cameras seem to come from a different decade each, mostly from the Seventies to the early Nineties.
* SurrealHumor
* TrashTheSet: At the beginning of every episode, Eric is seen rushing in and breaking everything (while also doing...other things). The set is always rebuilt within literally seconds.
** Taken UpToEleven in the Season 2 Finale when the entire episode is basically Eric breaking the set.
