Chef José Andrés suggests Trump take leadership lessons from Puerto Rican kids on The Daily Show

(Short version, best read in Grampa…

Trevor Noah spends 18 minutes talking to Omarosa, as life is now the worst reality show ever

You remember back when it started to look nauseatingly possible that Donald Trump would become president? Of the United States, even?

Hot celebrity beef: Trevor Noah and, um, the French Ambassador to the United States

Earlier this week, following France’s win at the 2018 World Cup finals, Trevor Noah poked a little fun at the French national team by proudly declaring that “Africa won the World Cup,” owing to the fact that the majority of the stars on the French team are children of African immigrants. While the joke was obviously…

Late-night scorecard: "Holy shit, the president's an actual Russian agent" edition

Hey, remember how everyone on the internet with an eagle in their Twitter avatar made fun of you for suggesting that Donald Trump was acting like a Russian sleeper agent?

Trevor Noah calls the two-party system "one of the most destructive forces in America"

Trevor Noah’s time as host of The Daily Show has felt distinctly different from Jon Stewart’s for many reasons.

“That is a power base ”: #MeToo founder Tarana Burke tells Trevor Noah survivors are just getting started

On the day when copiously alleged sexual predator Harvey Weinstein was indicted for rape among other crimes, The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah asked Tarana Burke, if such news “brings [her] joy.” Burke, who founded the #MeToo movement to give voice to survivors of sexual violence over a decade ago, explained patiently that…

Trevor Noah had a cameo in Black Panther that people are only just noticing

Here’s something we’ve come to realize of late: There’s always a cameo. If you’re watching a modern big-budget movie, there’s a good chance that some A-lister is hiding on the fringes, whether it be Daniel Craig and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in The Last Jedi, Kevin Smith in The Force Awakens, Matt Damon in Thor: Ragnarok, …

Terry Crews talks Deadpool 2, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and toxic masculinity on The Daily Show

Human-shaped charm mountain Terry Crews was typically delightful in his sit-down with Trevor Noah on Wednesday’s Daily Show.

David Blaine does some disgusting magic for Trevor Noah on The Daily Show

For his recent appearance on The Daily Show, David Blaine decided to take a break from his signature “Isn’t it freaky that I knew what your card was?”-style of magic and do something a bit more viscerally shocking. Maybe he was feeding off of how uncomfortable Trevor Noah looked or maybe the current cultural climate…

On The Daily Show, Rosie Perez returns from Puerto Rico with plenty of words for "that man"

As a proudly outspoken woman of Puerto Rican descent who’s just returned from a charitable trip to that still storm-ravaged island and seen first hand how the current U.S. administration has neglected millions of American citizens, one might have hoped for Rosie Perez to come out swinging in her Thursday Daily Show…

Matt Damon has been forced to comment on Ben Affleck’s back tattoo

Earlier this week, the nation was made painfully aware of the reality of Ben Affleck’s massive back tattoo, which he had previously and understandably claimed was fake.

Late-night hosts return from hiatus to address the Parkland shooting—and its righteous survivors

Last week a gunman stalked the halls of a high school in Parkland, Florida, killing 17 people. Many late-night hosts were on hiatus at the time, meaning they were saved from delivering another round of despairingly de rigeur monologues in which they are forced to process grief—and make comedy—in the wake of a…

Late-night hosts have a memo for Trump, Devin Nunes, and Sean Hannity: Your “bombshell” memo is horseshit

Since it was the start of a new work week, the late night comedy hosts all had a weekend’s worth of Donald Trump’s crap to sift through on Monday. Sure, there was that speech in Cincinnati where Trump said Democrats who dared to not applaud for his typically mendacious State Of The Union address were guilty of “treason

Live Daily and Late Shows break Trump's stomach-churning State Of The Union into more digestible nuggets

Both the Late Show With Stephen Colbert and The Daily Show With Trevor Noah stayed up late on Tuesday to deliver live breakdowns of Donald Trump’s long, rambling, predictably racist and awful (if obediently on-book) State Of The Union speech. Whether or not attempting to cobble together a show’s worth of jokes on the…

Planned Parenthood's Cecile Richards tells Trevor Noah that women are poised to dominate the 2018 elections

Look, it’s hard to stay positive night after night when your job is trying to find the lighter side of a nation under Donald Trump, but, on Thursday’s Daily Show, Trevor Noah brought in a stalwart ally in Planned Parenthood and Planned Parenthood Action Fund president Cecile Richards. And, sure, with Donald Trump and…

Late-night hosts respond with appropriate subtlety to President Shithole’s racist comments

You can say this for Donald Trump: He sure is a vulgar, embarrassing old bigot. Oh, and he also continues to keep the late-night comedy hosts on their toes, as he seems inclined to leave his most awful actions and comments to the late afternoons, right before the nightly shows go to tape. (Perhaps he just gets cranky…

The Daily Show and The Opposition will air live after Trump's first State Of The Union

There are any number of reasons that a person might have for looking forward to Donald Trump’s first State Of The Union address on January 30—including the likelihood that it’ll be a disaster or that it’ll give them a good excuse to completely disengage from TV and the internet for a night—but Comedy Central is now…
