Who is Eric Andre and why is he famous?
Lately you might have seen Eric Andre’s face often while you browse the internet. He looks familiar and like a big celebrity, but you might not be fully aware as to whys he is so famous. Eric is a comedian and actor, and his fame has grown through planning his own show, “The Eric Andre Show”, before which he was best known for his roles in the “Man Seeking Woman” comedy series on FXX. Apparently, this comedian/actor is brave enough to showcase his talents and boldness to the world after struggling to break through, as with his early role in the 2009 movie ‘The Invention of Lying’. Obviously, his fortitude and resilience have been the key to his rapid rise in popularity.
Early life and educationEric Samuel Andre was born on 4th of April 1983, in Boca Raton, Florida. His father is Haitian and works as a psychiatrist, and his mother is Jewish-American. Interestingly, Eric identifies himself as both Jewish and black, and more precisely his ancestry as Ashkenazi and Afro-Haitian. Eric has an older sister, Amy Andre. He matriculated from Dreyfoos School of the Arts in 2001, located in West Palm Beach, Florida. After that, he has made his greatest choice of enrolling in studies at Berklee College of Music, Boston, Massachusetts, where he focused on playing double bass most of the time before graduating in 2005, not knowing he would find himself in a slightly different career choice.
Personal dating life
For the most part, Andre has succeeded in keeping his private love life more hidden compared with other celebs. However, some information is known to the public – from 2012 to 2014 he dated the American actress Tatyana Ali, but this was always wrapped in mystery and suspicions as to whether it was true. Then in 2015 he dated the curvy blonde Amber Rose (ex- of Kanye and of Wiz Khalifa), but he regretfully remembers this failed relationship. His last girlfriend was Rosario Dawson, who dated him from 2016 to 2017, apparently, as this breakup is still not confirmed. So far, Andre has not had any kids or marriages in his past.
