Eric Andre Got Absolutely ‘Ripped’ For Season 6 of His Show

Ask your average comedy fan to describe Eric Andre and you’ll get a mixed bag of responses. The enigmatic comic’s cult TV series has been described as ground-breaking, innovative and ‘some sort inescapable closed universe containing nothing but an endless slightly nightmarish talk show’ by one very confused IMDb reviewer. But despite amassing a loyal following and catapulting its namesake host into the limelight, the first five seasons of the Eric Andre Show could hardly be described as ‘sexy’. Judging by the first teaser for season six, that’s all about to change.

Fresh off an unexpected and whirlwind romance with Hollywood ‘It-Girl’ Emily Ratajkowski, Andre is returning to his roots with the new season, destroying sets, intimidating guests and being generally chaotic. The first clip of the upcoming instalment was shared by network Adult Swim this week, showcasing a familiar display of uncomfortable hostility, albeit with a fresh and oddly smooth twist.

The 40-year-old opens the disorientating trailer with an assortment of cut-off shirts and skimpy outfits designed entirely to demonstrate his ridiculously impressive new physique. For those who don’t remember, Andre gained a tonne of weight and shaved his head for season five, but that look has firmly been retired.

“I lost 40 pounds and got ripped for this season because the previous season I gained 40 pounds,” Andre nonchalantly told Distractify earlier this year. “I worked out an insane amount. It was like a lot of turkey — it was bland. I couldn’t drink. I couldn’t eat at restaurants. I just ate turkey slices, cottage cheese, no-sodium tuna fish, which is like prisoner food, and fruit.”

The comic’s strict fitness regime has certainly paid off. Looking at the side-by-side between seasons, it’s clear how much weight Andre has lost, completely restructuring his body composition. However, while the aesthetics may be different, fans can expect more classic hijinks for the new season. According to Adult Swim, The Eric Andre season six premiere will take fans back to the battleground, unleashing the indescribable host on a new crop of unsuspecting celebrities, such as Meagan Good, Diplo, Natasha Lyonne, Jon Hamm, Tinashe, and Lil Yachty.

“Eric is back behind the desk like never before; ripped, shredded, full of energy, complete with beads of sweat dripping down from his taut nips onto his glistening six-pack abs,” Adult Swim confirmed. “Watch pampered celebrities regret their choices, rappers get the runaround, and a slate of street pranks so egregious they collectively inspired a record 30 phone calls to 911. Co-hosts include Felipe Esparza, Reese W, Kraft Punk, and the mysterious (but soon-to-be iconic) FRIDGE KEEPER.”

Season six of The Eric Andre Show is set to premiere on Adult Swim on June 4. Get your pizza balls ready and start stockpiling ranch dressing, the next wave of Andre’s avant-garde comedy is coming, whether you’re ready or not.
