Leah Remini, Billy on the Street


From Shondaland to Scientology.

For Billy Eichner's latest hilarious obstacle course on Billy on the Street, the comedian is putting the controversial church in his crosshairs with a challenge he likes to call "Leah Remini's Escape From Scientology." And, well, it's every bit as insane as we've come to expect from Eichner.

As he explains to his Remini stand-in, guest Rachel Dratch, "The first few obstacles, you're joining Scientology. Then there's a twist: You decide you need to escape from the religion, save your kids, save your friends, and most importantly, save your acting career!" 

So, just what are these obstacles in Remini's Dratch's way? First, to play Eichner's game, she must sign the billion year contract that he claims some Scientologists have to sign using a huge magic marker. ("It worked for Jenna Elfman!") Next, it's time to marry a Scientologist—Giovanni Ribisi's cousin, to be exact. Of course, things don't go exactly to plan in the Xenu-officiated ceremony, so it's time to start escaping! What follows next is a bunch of pure, hysterical lunacy involving alien hallways, shirtless men trapped in sheds, and the giant volcano on the Dianetics cover.

The prize for a successful escape from all of Eichner's craziness? Why, eight half-hour episodes on TV Land, of course!

What are you waiting for? Press play on the video above and let Billy Eichner give you the belly laughs you've so desperately needed today.

Billy on the Street airs Thursdays at 10:30 p.m. on truTV.
