In this episode of People’s Party, Talib Kweli and Jasmin Leigh sit down with comedian, actor, writer, producer, and musician Eric Andre. The hilarious-yet-insightful discussion kicks off with Kweli recalling his own appearance on Eric’s show where he was viciously tased with a cattle prod by Murs. They dive into great advice Eric got from Dave Chappelle, his biggest influences, crate-digging for records, and his close friendship with comedian Hannibal Buress. Later, the trio discusses the professionalism of Ice Cube, unhappy celebs over the chaos they were subjected to on ‘The Eric Andre Show,’ and someone brandishing a knife on Eric during the filming of ‘Bad Trip.’
Eric also speaks on his love of Rawkus Records and the album ‘Soundbombing II.’ He reflects on how he identifies with his Jewish heritage and Kweli asks about Eric risking his life while trolling Alex Jones at the RNC. Bouncing off of a question from Jasmin, Eric explains what separates his forthcoming movie ‘Bad Trip’ from ‘Jackass,’ and sounds off on why artists shouldn’t explain their art. As the interview nears its close, the trio speaks on the genius of Tiffany Haddish, who stars in ‘Bad Trip,’ and why she volunteered herself for the project.
Finally, everyone shares their personal experiences with recreational drugs — which is a pretty damn strong way to end an episode.
