• Eric André reveals reason behind Eric Andre Show hiatus

     

    Lil Rel HoweryIt’s Impractical Jokers meets Jackass. Eric André and Lil Rel Howery will star in a new movie following their cross-country road trip full of incentive pranks. That explains why we haven’t seen a new Eric Andre Show since 2016. Bad Trip is co-produced by André, Jeff Tremaine, David Bernad, and Ruben Fleischer. Not surprisingly, Tremaine worked on the famed Jackass franchise

    On Tuesday, André addressed his 1.5 million Instagram followers, “sorry I took such a long hiatus from making the Eric André show….I’ve been secretly making a hidden camera prank movie with @comedianlilrel this whole time.”

    According to Orion Pictures, their film will be the first “hidden-camera narrative film” in theaters since 2013’s Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa.

    André is no stranger to pranks. His sketches show him boarding a NY subway car in a centaur costume and dressing like a potato to drop cash on a supposedly injured cyclist.

    The Bad Trip announcement adds to Howery’s already big week. On Monday, his movie Brittany Runs A Marathon premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Amazon is reportedly closing a $14 million deal for the world rights to the crowd-pleasing movie. Inspired by a true story, the film revolves around a woman who parties too much and then trains for a marathon to lose weight and regain control of her life.

    The good news comes just days after Howery lost his friend—and Rel series co-creator—Kevin Barnett.

    Bad Trip comes out October 25, just in time for Halloween hijinks.
