Billy Eichner returned with a brand new episode of “Billy on the Street” featuring comedian Tiffany Haddish.

In this episode, Eichner and Haddish run around the streets of New York City looking to recruit people for a diverse “Hocus Pocus” reboot called “Wokus Pocus.”

“Tiffany and I are gonna play two of the three main witches and we’re about the hit the streets to find someone to play the third witch to round out our more diverse cast,” Eichner explains.

On their search for diverse Sanderson sisters, the pair run into a lesbian Chinese woman who Eichner says would be perfect for “Crazy Witch Asians.”

Eichner asks another man if he’s straight and the man replies that he’s bisexual. “Yes! A bisexual witch,” Eichner exclaims.

Eichner also yells out some gems such as “Sir, straight white men don’t have a monopoly on ‘spooky’” and “This white woman has no time for our more inclusive ‘Hocus Pocus.'”

At the end, they run into a Haddish fan who yells out her catchphrase “She ready” while all three dance together. When Eichner tells her about the more inclusive “Hocus Pocus,” the woman says “They ain’t ready, but they better get ready.”
