The Main Idea Behind The Eric Andre Show Season 5

Both Eric And Hannibal play exaggerated characters as themselves in the show!

In the show, Eric Andre along with his sidekick chair, Hannibal, hosts a talk show in a bizarre environment where he is the player of hilarious pranks on his guests, but also sometimes is the victim to those pranks. He invites those guests who are unfamiliar with the workings of The Eric Andre Show and expect a routine interview. And then all the fun begins when the pranks are played! The guests are subjected to surrealist pranks and the audience to immense doses of laughter! 

Not only this, Eric also conducts live tours on the streets of New York to carry out his pranks in public. And they come up with a new distinctive style in every new season. So you see The Eric Andre Show Season 5 has been one of the most joyous late-night programs of Adult Swim.

Why Did Hannibal Buress Abruptly Quit The Show?

In the second episode of The Eric Andre Show Season 5, Hannibal Buress casually announced that he would be quitting the show at the end of this episode, following a chaotic interview with one of the guests. To keep this step somewhat fun, Eric immediately discarded a piece of Hannibal’s nose to create his clone ‘Blannibal’ who would replace him as the co-host. 

But the exit was not at all a sudden move. Eric in one of his interviews remarked that Hannibal would be departing the show during the fifth season due to his personal reasons, and would be replaced by James Hazley (playing Blannibal). But what could be the probable reason?

It was reported that Hannibal did not want to do The Eric Andre Season 5 at all because he seemed to have grown tired of the format. But he himself did not pose for specific reasons to quit the show. On his exit, Hannibal said “It has been a fun ride, but I’m almost 40; it’s time to do something else.”
