Charlie Sanders, Eugene Cordero, and Jon Gabrus join Matt Besser to improvise scenes inspired by Eric the formerly paid Intern’s Man on the Street Interviews with some very intimidating voters. They will explore topics such as fast paced game shows, the Russian government, and political commercials. Will you enjoy this episode? Why or why not? Let us know! Be sure to pick up an improv4humans shirt from the Earwolf Store and follow @MattBesser on Twitter to send in your improv suggestions. Music by Bobby Matthews and Dragoon.

Okie-dokie is just another example of the kind of gotcha journalism you can expect from the lame stream media.

My poll worker was sharper than any of yours.

Great ep, Matt. You've been wrecking shop recently. It just keeps getting better and better.

Eric is so bad he transcends to good. He just doesn't get it no matter how hard Matt tries. It's just so pathetic that it becomes hilarious.
Keep having Eric and his terrible interview skills come back.

Glad you guys like the Eric interviews. We're going to put out a BEST OF in two weeks. What have been some good sketches since our last BEST OF?

I gotta go with Wengert doing Edgar Allen Poe's ghost in Ep. 51. The whole bit about opening and shutting doors to show his feedback was hilarious!

I would say to start: Ep 51, Edgar Allan Poe and the scene about pulling the girl's hair and Ep 50, counseling scene.

I'm starting to doubt that Eric is a real person, considering how hilariously amazing his skills as an interview flourished while faced with that intimidating Polish man.

@MattBesser
The Edgar Allen Poe one, as people have mentioned. And I would say the first Eric the Paid intern segment that lead to the whole why or why not bit from today.

i wish you guys could've been there to witness the whole interview situation. i cannot even tell you how funny certain moments were to witness that were not really discussed on the podcast.

we missed so many potential interviews because he would explode in nervous energy and drop his recorder. and so many goddamn okie dokies.

and then the polish dude (who looked like an even bigger liam neeson) came back with his cell phone in our faces filming us super paranoid like he was catching scandalous voter intimidation on video. eric almost shit himself.

then eric could not for the life of him remember where we parked our cars, kept trying to go down the opposite direction. if i wasn't there he would've been wandering around beverly hills for hours.

Thank god that white boy didn't get stranded in the dangerous streets of Beverly Hills.

Seriously is Eric someone's nephew or something? He makes Karl Pilkington seem radiant at times. Hilarious.
