I am writing this paper on Eric Andre from The Eric Andre Show. I am choosing him because I feel like I relate to his comedy in a lot of ways and he is an interesting person who I would like to do more research on. In this paper I will give a biography, explain the comedian’s style, talk about why I connect with him and finish by talking about my favorite comedic moment of his. Eric Andre was born in Boca Raton, Florida on April 4th, 1983. Throughout his childhood, he was always getting in trouble for being the class clown, something that made him popular but also unsuccessful academically.

Hypnotist Dan Candell returned to the school on November 12th and students lined up at the doors as early as one hour before the show to snag the best seats in the auditorium. By 6:30 (half an hour before the start of the show) the bottom section of the auditorium was nearly filled to the brim with excited students. Parents, students, siblings, and even audience members from other schools waited anxiously for Dan Candell to take the stage and work his illusionary magic. The first few minutes of the show involved a few humorous stories, all of which involved past experiences Dan Candell had at his other shows, and then he tested everyone in the audience to determine whether they were visual learners or auditory learners to weed out who he would choose to hypnotize.
However, at some points of the show, it becomes clear that the students have some years left to learn. We can begin be critiquing the patriarch of the Adam’s family, Willie Beaton II as Gomez Addams. Beaton’s talents lie in comedic acting, and his talent certainly presented itself in the comedic bits of the show, such as the character’s handling of trying to keep a secret from his wife, an act that he has never done before. The exaggerated mannerisms gave me a huge laugh. His technical skills with

I think it’s also important to note my lack of awareness of our gym’s bleachers until this afternoon!

The special is basically Cosby sitting in a chair, complaining, and giving his observations about his family life and the degenerate youth of generation X. Cosby's range of idiosyncrasies and relatable storylines are often regarded as revolutionary by a generation of young comedians. Go into any comedy club and ask around what people think of Himself, and you're pretty much guaranteed to hear responses such as, “It's the reason I decided to get into comedy.” It has inspired multitudes of aspiring comedians, and legends, such as Jerry Seinfield, Sarah Silverman, and even Hannibal Buress; it's influenced the way comedians perform comedy, as well as how the audience absorbs it. All the praise that exists for Himself is what makes it incredibly difficult to, now, invalidate it completely; however, comedy aficionados from all over the globe would easily dispute that Himself should be disregarded from any public discourse, and its influence forgotten. But is this all necessary? Just because public opinion of Cosby should rightly change, doesn't necessarily mean that public opinion of what constitutes a good joke should change.
