Published Nov 07, 2019After giving his Kraft Punk character get a spinoff special earlier this year, Eric Andre will now take his "Rapper Warrior Ninja" sketch from The Eric Andre Show to new heights as a standalone series.
Deadline reports that Andre's bit, which first appeared in the show's fourth season, will become a series on forthcoming streaming platform Quibi. Rapper Warrior Ninja will be executive produced by Andre and his Eric Andre Show director Kitao Sakurai. A concrete release date for the series was not given.
For the uninitiated, the initial sketch saw Danny Brown, A$AP Rocky, Open Mike Eagle and more try to make their way through a series of dangerous and disgusting obstacles while freestyling. You can watch the hilarity below.
