I've never even been invited to the GLAAD awards, to sit in the audience. I don't necessarily care, and I'm sure they will one day, and it will be fine, but I've never been invited to anything like that.

I loved 'Solid Gold!'

If you're on TV, you can't complain, right? And I understand that, and it's true to a certain degree.

When I was child, I was intoxicated by celebrities, showbiz and theatre, but from a child's perspective, where they seem far away.

I always want to lead with comedy but hopefully be able to sneak my message through at the same time.

I did start out as an actor. I went to Northwestern; I did musicals. I did plays.

People going off on politics on Grindr is one of the stupidest things I've ever seen. That's an immediate sign to run in the other direction.

I came out to my parents when I was a junior in college. And it was pretty fine. They were more concerned with why I wasn't dating anyone. But now I'm 36, and I still don't date anyone.

Our new vice president, Mike Pence, is one of the most blatantly anti-LGBT politicians in the country, and most, if not all, of Trump's cabinet is anti LGBT equality as well.

I'm not a bro.

'Billy on the Street' is the hardest thing that I will ever do.

The mainstream needs Ellen DeGeneres and Rosie O'Donnell. The mainstream needs RuPaul.

There are certain people you're allowed to pick apart and certain people you're not.

I do not like not having Wi-Fi in general, but certainly not on a plane. I fall apart.

I did a live late-night talk show called 'Creation Nation' with friends of mine. I had a sidekick and a band, and I wrote the whole thing. And it had the form of a late-night talk show, but we did it on stage because no one was giving me a TV show at the time.

Usually, you'll have a show like the 'King of Queens,' and there'll be one really fat guy, but at least he has a beautiful wife - they balance it out.

My mom had a heart attack, and it came out of nowhere - she was 54. My dad had leukemia for about 3 months. He was 80 when he passed. My dad had me later in life, and so he had leukemia and was alive for about 3 months between diagnosis and passing away.

I thought I was going to be like Kevin Spacey in college.

No one was asking me to be on TV. So I made my own late-night TV talk show.

I grew up worshipping Pee-wee Herman.

I think 'Billy on the Street' is a big show, but why do a show if you won't make it original and unique and powerful?

I always turn to Wendy Williams when there's any type of ethical or moral crisis in our country.

I was very much an only child who was raised by the television and movies, and I grew up in New York. We weren't, like, rich people, but we were middle-class people and my parents supported this love I had for entertainment.

My father would read me Page Six instead of, like, kids' stories.

I'm smart enough to know I shouldn't be behind the wheel.

I grew up in New York, so I had a lot of access to all kinds of movies, and I would handwrite reviews of them on loose-leaf paper.

The 'Billy On The Street' persona is truly inspired by who I was as a child - obviously not having an adult perspective on the world.

For some reasons, I have WWE wrestlers tweeting me all the time. Like, my biggest fans. Why they can connect with my love for Meryl Streep, I don't know.

You have to have a sense of humor about all of it - the Emmys and politics and everything.

'Billy on the Street' is a very exhausting show to do, as you can imagine, but it's worth it.

I have this ongoing obsession with Meryl Streep.

A lot of comics aren't their on-screen personas; Chris Rock isn't always ranting and raving. What I do is make myself this over-the-top character that people either find endearing or they think is a joke. Then I can do anything I want.

I would never be a contestant on my own show. I would never speak to me, and I'd never sign the release.

I think there's a fear once things start to blow up - as the people say - that if you stop for a second, it will all go away.

I have a vivid memory of loving Keith Hernandez, the first baseman for the '86 Mets. I grew up in Queens, so when the Mets won the World Series that year, it was a big deal.

When I came out to my parents, I knew that they knew. My father was like, 'Are you sure?' I literally said, 'You took me to see Barbra Streisand at Madison Square Garden.'

Society would be better off if Billy Eichner started getting more dramatic work.

If you're faking it, people will know, and it's going to turn a lot of people off.

Anytime you're the creative force behind something and in front of the camera - we're not complaining, but it is an avalanche of work.

Saying gay people shouldn't be the punchline is basically saying don't make people the punch line, which I think is ridiculous. The whole point of comedy is, on some level, to make fun of ourselves and put everything into an absurdist context.

You don't want to really pick on someone that you genuinely like. In terms of 'Billy on the Street,' there are certain actors - I don't care if they find out because I do feel that way. Though it's almost never about appearance or something out of their control. I pick on choices they've made or roles they've taken.

I think that I am working to remind myself that it's still my life... you have to enjoy yourself.

I took the Oscars very seriously as a child.

All that social media hyperbole is just so fake.

If I'm screaming at someone, it's because I think they're an idiot.

I was like a fat, sweaty kid growing up in Queens who just was plopped down in front of 'Entertainment Tonight' by my parents.

We need to take a breath and find big ways and small ways to get active.

If you're pretty, you want to be ugly. If you're loud, you want to play quiet. You always want to challenge people's expectations.

There have been man-on-the-street interviews for years, but insulting people is not that funny to me.
