Performer Eric Andre will headline A&O Productions’ 2019 Fall Speaker Event, A&O announced in a Thursday release.

The annual show, held this year at Cahn Auditorium on October 29, will also feature opening act David Gborie, a Los Angeles-based stand-up comic, actor and writer, whose first stand-up special is expected to premiere on Comedy Central in November.

Andre is the creator and host of “The Eric Andre Show,” Adult Swim’s top-rated show. After proving himself as a stand-up comedian, Andre debuted the live action comedy television series in May 2012. “The World’s most unstable talk show host,” according to the release, is joined on his series by “longtime friend and profoundly apathetic co-host Hannibal Buress.”

“But of course he brings his own flare to what is otherwise a very organized and predictable late night routine,” the release said. “Unlike his counterparts, Jimmy Fallon or Conan O’Brien, Andre’s unrelenting and constantly over the top humor puts some of his guests on ‘The Eric Andre Show’ into situations they never thought they would end up in.”

The Boca Raton, Fla. native also voiced the hyena “Azizi” in Disney’s summer remake of “The Lion King”.
