The fifth season of “Billy on the Street” premieres on November 15, and TruTV has released a new trailer (watch above). The series stars comedian Billy Eichner, who roams the streets of New York City for his pedestrian quiz show/sketch comedy series, whose upcoming games include “Name a racist” and “Chris Hemsworth, or someone who had to try?”
The celebrity guests joining “Billy on the Street” this season include a slew of Emmy-winners: Aziz Ansari (“Master of None”), Jon Hamm (“Mad Men”), Keegan-Michael Key (“Key and Peele”) and John Oliver (“Last Week Tonight”). Also making appearances are Andy Samberg, Seth Rogen, Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o (“12 Years a Slave”) and “Room” breakout Jacob Tremblay.
“Billy on the Street” debuted on Fuse in 2011 and aired on that network for three seasons before moving to TruTV in 2015. To date the series has earned two Emmy nominations. In 2013 it competed at the Daytime Emmys where Eichner was nominated for Best Game Show Host. Then in 2015 a special episode featuring Michelle Obama and Big Bird earned a Primetime Emmy bid for Best Short-Format Entertainment Program.
