Watch Lupita Nyong’o Channel Louis C.K. on ‘Billy on the Street’

Oscar-winning actress also tries standup material by Bob Saget, Daniel Tosh, Andrew Dice Clay

Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o gives standup comedy a whirl on Billy on the Street. The 12 Years a Slave star surprised passersby with bawdy material by famous comics in preparation for her own “comedy special,” which Eichner dubs: “Lupita Nyong’o: Bring the Pain.”

In the episode, the duo subjected unsuspecting New Yorkers to the actress’ awkward comic delivery, nabbing jokes from Bob Saget, Louis C.K., Andrew Dice Clay and Daniel Tosh. Nyong’o shocked one woman with Saget’s raunchy bit about bestiality. 

“You look like the type of guy who will go into a petting zoo at two in the morning,” she said. “Never fuck a goat. I don’t know, but I’m telling you: Never fuck a goat. Don’t fuck a goat. Do you hear me, son? Wanna know why? ‘Cause a goat will eat a tin can. They’ll eat fucking junk. And they’ll eat your junk right off, and you will be junk-less. And you will have nothing. Please, please, never fuck a goat.” The woman’s response? “It’s good advice.”

Elsewhere, Nyong’o channeled a C.K. poop punchline (“I don’t know why they call it ‘Number Two.’ I think it’s easily the best one”), Dice Clay’s annoyed nursery rhyme analysis and Tosh’s rants about Google autofill ruining his relationship (“[My girlfriend] just hits ‘A,’ and it’s ‘Asian ass porn’).

The “Bring the Pain” segment airs in this week’s Billy on the Street on Tuesday, November 29th at 10:30 p.m. ET on Tru TV.
