  • TVology
The Eric Andre Show can be described as a talk show with a side of madness. Eric Andre, co-star of Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23, tosses out the conventional talk show format and conducts interviews with 'fake' celebrities as well as actual celebrities in this late night comedy on Adult Swim. I caught up with one of the show's directors, Kitao Sakurai, to talk about the show's humor, special guest stars and his co-director, Andrew Barchilon.

Ology: I’m sure you get asked this a lot, but how did the whole concept for the show come about?

Kitao Sakurai: Eric came to us with this idea a couple of years ago to do this sort of like almost art alternate universe talk show, and Andrew and I had already been working together for quite a while, and we’re developing this sort of – I don’t know

First Person | "The Eric Andre Show" Creators Andrew Barchilon and Kitao Sakurai on Embracing Ineptitude in Their Talk Show Parody

  • Indiewire
Andrew Barchilon and Kitao Sakurai, the cofounders of the New York-based production company Naked Faces. got their start in the world of film. Sakurai shot and Barchilon produced Ry Russo-Young's "You Wont Miss Me," after which the pair went on to make 2010 festival favorite "Aardvark," a slow-burning noir about a blind jiu-jitsu student who gets pulled into the shady doings of his friend and instructor (Barchilon served as producer while Sakurai wrote and directed the film). Their latest project finds them not just venturing into television but breaking it down as well (sometimes literally). "The Eric Andre Show," currently airing on Adult Swim on Sundays at 12:30am, is technically a talk show with interviews and planned bits. But host Eric Andre and his sidekick Hannibal Buress oversee what's more a scene of surreal, apocalyptic strangeness taking place on some alternate reality public access channel in which Savion...

The Eric Andre Show Begins Production in Los Angeles
Production is now underway in Los Angeles, California for The Eric Andre Show, a new late-night talk show from Adult Swim being directed by Andrew Barchilon & Kitao Sakuri.

Just another talk show? Think again. The Eric Andre Show may be the most manic and unorthodox late night talk show ever made. The show's traditional talk show format quickly devolves into chaos as its inept and bipolar host Eric Andr&#233 (Don't Trust the B---- In Apartment 23) along with his apathetic co-host Hannibal Buress (30 Rock, Saturday Night Live) subvert all late-night conventions.

Taking 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.
