Monday night brought together some of our favorites with Paul F. Tompkins, Alex Borstein and Brandon Johnson discussing Joe Biden’s ability to inspire memes, Elton John’s good humor, and Chris Hardwick’s level of “metal”. For all their hilarity, we are sad to say these three great comedians…well…they’re not the best spellers. And then, there were #MetalCarols where Borstein questioned the validity of the button-pressing system, and we genuinely LOL’d in our living room.
The all-star comedy line-up on Tuesday included Rhys Darby, Al Madrigal and Jim Jefferies. You don’t want to miss their Abominable Snowman impressions or their incredible skills with acronyms. Really. They’re very good. There were some really, really excellent #BookSequels from the group too so you have some ideas of what to look for if you’re shopping for presents this holiday season. Oh, and Gary Busey provided some inspiration and a brother for a segment.
Wednesday started with some very, very disorderly mascots who clearly do not like children. Mamrie Hart, Judah Friedlander, and Brooks Wheelan were at the podiums and then were joined by some very, very special guests. That’s right! Did you miss it? Seth Rogan and James Franco stopped by just to make sure @midnight was properly in the holiday spirit. Because Christmas isn’t Christmas without a little awkward mixed in.
The awesome Doug Benson, Megan Neuringer and Kurt Braunohler joined Chris on Thursday night for such greatness as #MillennialHistory, and church of the fried chicken. We also learned that some people really love themed weddings even when it means hanging from hooks. And we were introduced to a new concept in high art: Great Works of Fart.
Don’t forget to tune into @midnight‘s social media channels for behind the scenes videos, pics and round-ups of all the best jokes. You can catch them on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and Tumblr for these delightful additions to the show.
