About Billy Eichner

You may have seen Billy Eichner on the streets of NYC asking absurd questions to celebrities and civilians. Maybe you caught Billy on his hit Hulu show Difficult People. Or perhaps you’re just one of the 1.7M people who know him as the energetic tweeter always sharing his two cents on politics, pop culture, and life in general. This year, the antic comedian landed a role on American Horror Story: Cult, as his 300K+ Instagram followers know from all the behind-the-scenes ‘grams with his fellow castmates. His 2017 ended strong, with Billy voicing Timon in the upcoming Lion King film, presenting at the #AMAs, and getting profiled lovingly in The New Yorker. We suppose all that energy needs to be directed somewhere!
