Watch Rachel Dratch Tackle Billy Eichner’s Scientology Obstacle Course

Comedian flees Xenu, saves kids from Sea Org, climbs ‘Dianetics’ volcano in wild ‘Billy on the Street’ clip

Billy Eichner unleashed Rachel Dratch on a harrowing, hilarious Scientology-themed obstacle course in a ridiculous new clip from Billy on the Street.

Eichner fittingly dubbed the challenge, “Leah Remini’s Escape From Scientology,” a nod to the actress who recently detailed her split from the Church in a new book. The host explained to Dratch that the first few obstacles would find her joining the Church of Scientology, before cracking, “Then there’s a twist: You decide you need to escape the religion, save your kids, save your friends and most importantly save your acting career!”

And away Dratch went, first signing a billion year contract with the Church before marrying one of Giovanni Ribisi’s cousins in a ceremony presided over by intergalactic dictator, Xenu. From there the obstacle course took a Double Dare-esque turn as Dratch dodged slime and alien limbs, scaled an inflatable ship to save her kids from Sea Org and dug out a mannequin representing Shelly Miscavige — the reportedly missing wife of Scientology honcho David Miscavige — from a pool of Jell-O.

For her final feat, Dratch hiked to the top of the erupting volcano on the cover of L. Ron Hubbard’s Dianetics, where she was greeted by her new savior — a TV Land executive. “It’s not a billion-year contract,” Eichner raved below. “It’s just eight half-hour episodes!”
