Billy Eichner Reveals the Best Advice He's Received & It's From Joan Rivers

Billy Eichner is on the cover of Money magazine’s new issue!

Here’s what the 38-year-old comedian had to share with the mag:

On creating a career for himself: “I wasn’t going to let waiting in line with 500 other actors be my fate. So I had to think about what I can do that other people can’t. A lot of people can act. But not a lot of people can be funny.”

On the best advice he ever received: “The advice that really stuck in my mind was Joan Rivers. I was really starting to get frustrated because everyone was like ‘you’re this’, ‘you’re that’, ‘you’re so great’ blah blah blah. Well no ones giving me a job so how great can I be? But then Joan sat me down over martinis one night and she said, ‘Its going to take one person to pick you up and just put you in the right thing.’ It turned out though that I was the person to put me in the thing.”

On the process of creating Billy on the Street: “Every costume, every prop, every idea gets filtered through me. It’s a huge undertaking, but we do a very good job of making it look like we threw it all together in a couple of weeks. Every little detail has to be right.”
