Eric Andre / Wonder Ballroom / Portland / August 25 / Tickets
Eric Andre is the creator and host of The Eric Andre Show, and is also on an ongoing comedy tour. The talk-show parody on Cartoon Network’s programming block Adult Swim and influences many of his live bits. The late-night show parodies low-budget public-access programs while bringing the talk genre to another level, not in a good way. It features interviews with celebrities — some really are, and others are impersonators — and what producers describe as “extreme real-life weirdos” interspersed with “deranged” man-on-the-street segments and just general chaos in the studio. Working with André is apathetic sidekick Hannibal Buress, who serves as the straight man to the hyperactive host.
He co-starred as Mark on the short-lived ABC comedy series Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23, and guest-starred on 2 Broke Girls as Deke, Max’s love interest and fellow pastry student. He plays Mike in the FXX comedy series Man Seeking Woman, which premiered in 2015. On March 3, 2015, Man Seeking Woman was renewed for a 10-episode second season, slated to air in 2016.
