The Republican National Convention got off to a very odd start today after Eric Andre was mistakenly pulled up on stage during Alex Jones’ speech outside the convention center in Cleveland. Jones thought that Andre was a contributor on “The Daily Show”. Andre isn’t on “The Daily Show”, but he got up there anyways and made a mockery of Jones’ time on stage which I think is something we can all get behind.
Alex Jones is a prominent conservative conspiracy theorist who’s voice sounds a little bit like he’s been chain smoking cigarettes for a very long time. I personally got a kick out of it, and if you haven’t seen Eric Andre’s “The Eric Andre Show” on Comedy Central you need to check it out. It’s incredibly funny and completely bizarre. He’s good friends with Hannibal Burress, who also appears on his show frequently, and I would highly recommend it. Andre is apparently being filmed at the RNC by Tim Heidecker of “Tim & Eric” fame so hopefully there is more hi jinx to come..
