Taking his comedy bit to a whole new level, Billy Eichner teamed up with Cookie Monster in a hilarious skit for ‘Sesame Street’ that we never knew we needed! Storming through the set of the children’s show, Billy TOTALLY took us back by interacting with all of our fav Muppets. Watch here & prepare to LOL!
While Billy Eichner, 38, is used to taking to the mean sidewalks of NYC for his hilarious show Billy On The Street, on Mar. 29 he decided to try something a little more kid-friendly and A LOT more heartwarming! Teaming up with Cookie Monster, the comedian popped over to “one of the kindest streets in the world” — aka Sesame Street — for a special edition of Billy on the Street.

For his new bit, of course Billy had to tone down his expletive-laced confrontations, but believe it or not, that didn’t make his piece any less hilarious. The theme of the episode? Billy was on a quest for some kindness and compassion, and it seems like he got just what he was looking for! We especially love how many of our favorite characters — some that we had even forgotten about — made appearances, making Billy’s video super fun to watch.
Instead of dollar bills, he handed out cookies for any right answers, much to Cookie Monster’s dismay. “Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Street?” Billy asked Big Bird and Abby. After nailing the question, Billy shouted, “I’m very nice!” as he tossed a cookie their way.
Later, the funnyman ran into Zoe, Elmo, Rosita, Grover, and even The Count. While usually short-tempered, Billy did manage to keep his cool with Oscar the Grouch, who told him to “get lost” — yikes! Grover on the other hand, kept getting his question wrong under pressure. But Billy couldn’t resist rewarding him anyway. “I’ll give you a cookie anyway because kindness is contagious!” the comedian told the blue muppet. Aw!
And apparently Billy had just as much fun filming the sketch as audience members had watching it. “Here it is…it’s BILLY ON THE SESAME STREET!!! I went to
@sesamestreet with COOKIE MONSTER!!! Best day of my life,” he tweeted on Mar. 29. Yass Billy, Yass!
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — are you loving Billy’s special edition of Billy On The Street? Wasn’t it crazy seeing all those Sesame Street characters again?
