tv midnight With Chris Hardwick Comedy Central April 1, 2016 12:01am-12:32am PDT
>> chris: it's 11:59 and 59 seconds-- this happened on nypost.com! i'm sad to report that early this morning, human party boat and former toronto mayor rob ford succumbed to being rob ford. tim horton's hung their flags at half-mast today in honor of the whatnot who once discussed cunnilingus skills at a press conference. one of the first to report this tragic loss to the canadian people and the comedy community was "the new york post" who delicately eulogized him with this headline: "guy who liked crack dies." [ applause ] >> chris: how thoughtful of you, new york post. first of all, rob ford didn't like crack-- he liked being -- he [beep] loved it
rob ford loved crack. but he was so much more! he loved the spotlight and city hall and tumbling over fire hydrants after pounding enough pina coladas to poison a kodiak bear. he loved saying "( bleep )" around children and he loved rehab so much he went back several times. because rob ford loved everything in enormous quantities and he will genuinely be missed. we had a lot of fun with him, his shin an ganz were an easy target. but canada, you're about to get it back tenfold when trump turns the white house orange. phra *ut. >> chris: don't, it's so not funny . i will say this about rob ford. he refused to be anything but rob ford. to his family i would like to send my most heartfelt thoughts and hopes that you heal quickly. on behalf of everyone o
"@midnight." party in peace, rob ford. party in peace. comedians, the new york posts had a different eulogy. it was up for just a minute. they tried to out rob ford, rob ford. give me a fitting headline. [beep] newspaper from hell. >> chris: well done. cameron esposito. >> break now, canada's best dancer.

gawker invaded his privacy and damaged his reputation by outing a racist bone in his body. comedians, $140 million is a lot of money for someone who wears $5 tank tops and smells lik sweat. what is the hulkster going to do with the money? >> pay everyone back for the t shirts he ruined. they were rented. >> chris: didn't care who he destroyed. is >> chris: next, "dock hogs." the oregon port city of astoria has been having trouble with some unwelcome guests. no, not portland hipsters! i'm talking a different bunch of slimy creatures with bad facial hair: sea lions! sea lions. i know you say ahhh now until 2500 are [beep]ing on your front lawn. they've been camping out on the
