The Latest ‘Billy on the Street’ Finds People Unaware of Chris Pratt

GameStop, Inc.

Despite being one of the biggest movie stars in the world today, there are still people out there that don’t recognize Chris Pratt. On the streets of the Big Apple, Billy Eichner seemingly found every single person imaginable to have not seen either Guardians of the Galaxy or Jurassic World in the latest episode of Billy on the Street, Eichner’s comedy/game show hybrid on TruTV. As usual, Billy on the Street continues rolling down the streets of New York, freaking out pedestrians with pop culture questions and Eichner’s trademark form of interrogative questioning.

In the second episode of its fourth season, Eichner is reunited with Pratt, his former co-star on Parks and Recreation, where Billy puts Pratt under the gun in asking him to differentiate between the names of Bond Girls and marginal cable networks, as well as asking Pratt to differentiate between the names of planets from Star Wars and those of African nations. Pratt, however, has a bit of difficulty with each of these challenges, which is fairly understandable. But the highlight of the episode is when a plethora of pedestrians are incapable of referring to Pratt by name. One after the other feigns surprise when being greeted by Pratt only to completely whiff on his name. But, hey, he was only in the year’s biggest movie.

This latest episode isn’t merely just Eichner and Pratt, as Billy brings back segments familiar to regular viewers to Billy on the Street. Of course, Eichner runs around asking people to answer his questions in the segment “For a Dollar,” where he’s able to find one person who is completely unaware of Ben Stiller yet recognizes Billy from his work on Parks and Rec. The other regular segment returning is “Quizzed in the Face,” as the comedian asks a New Yorker questions about pop culture, though this particular individual has an affinity for Mr. Ed and Ron Howard and continually talks about them in spite of Billy’s loud protests. When seeking assistance to answer a question, Billy finds quite the surly, toothless individual who is quite angered to have assisted in answering a question wrong.

Billy on the Street is continually hilarious in its presentation of a pop culture game show that preys on the unsuspecting bystander. Eichner has a personality that may irritate some, but for most he’s able to push his concept to the limit and coax genuinely funny moments out of ordinary people. I wouldn’t dare call Billy on the Street a prank show as much it’s a comedic take on stale game shows. It’s so consistent in finding amazing people on the street and Eichner has an uncanny ability to push certain buttons, but never in a way that is overtly mean-spirited. If Billy Eichner ever comes off as surly, it’s just because these people don’t know enough about the pop culture he holds so dear to his heart.

Billy on the Street airs Thursdays at 10:30pm on TruTV
