Billy Eichner‘s excoriating comedy series Billy on the Street is winding through its fifth season, and Tuesday night’s episode featured one of the show’s most ambitious (and relevant) obstacle courses yet.
Watch as Keegan-Michael Key is tasked with running through a Double Dare-esque obstacle course, or rather a “lack of obstacles course,” in an effort to legally buy as many guns as he can. This include “fudging” the Second Amendment, breaking down different states’ backwards gun laws, and climbing through literal loopholes. Eichner also works in a joke about Malcolm in the Middle‘s Jane Kaczmarek.
If you can get past the screaming, you’ll see Eichner is subtly retooling political comedy. In a recent interview with Vulture, he elaborates on the duties of comedians in an era of Trump: “I do think entertainers and artists have a responsibility to, at the very least, sit themselves down and have a conversation with themselves about how they are using their platform.”
