maria bamford. 500 to greg and paul: [cheers and applause] >> chris: it's time for scandalgate. tuesday was the anniversary of the watergate hearings back in 1973, which were important for two reasons. one, because they reminded us that no one is above the law, and two, because now, every (/ bleep/ ) time there's a scandal, everyone adds the word "gate" to it. for no good reason. watergate was just the name o the hotel. where the robbery happened. it doesn't make sense. you understand that stuff happened at a la quinta tom brady would be in deplate quinta. so comedians, just to illustrate the point, i want you to add the word "gate" to something to create a scandal. examples may be "my girlfriend's period is lategate" or "gate blanchett." i'm putting 60 seconds on the clock, begin. bamford. >> global climate change gate,

[beep] you, trees. [cheers and applause] >> chris: you like that or you [beep] hate trees. either one. or ... we are a male demographic from -- to 45 who suffer. who do you think pays for "@midnight." who is number one? paul goebel won the internet.
