In Which Amy Poehler Terrorizes the Streets of New York While Wearing a Pitbull Mask

Billy Eichner and Amy Poehler scream-sing Christmas carols to strangers.
The last time Billy Eichner and Amy Poehler got together, she was wearing a Mrs. Claus outfit and they were accosting unsuspecting strangers with Christmas carols. This time around, it’s a Pitbull mask Poehler is wearing and the dilemma is a New York classic: is that beloved comedian Amy Poehler or Mr. Worldwide I’m looking at? There’s so many famous people on these streets, it can get confusing.

Anyway, “It’s Not Pitbull, It’s Amy Poehler” is a fairly simple game that mostly revolves around a fairly delightful reveal in which a stranger is excited to learn that it is actually Amy Poehler standing before him/her. However, as it always happens on Billy on the Street, there are a few nonplussed New Yorkers who’ve got salads at ABC Kitchen to get to.

That said, this whole thing is delightful and despite their hilarious height difference, Poehler and Eichner make a great comedy team: all vowels and zingers. Dale.
