[ applause ]
>> it's all about the dead eye. comedians, since you can chooe from anyone, which celebrity's d.n.a. would you want to get? nic swad son. >> i will take channing tate ems dna. i will just take his d. >> chris: do you want that d in your a? >> yes. chris: okay, alright.

[laughing] >> chris: the janitor at gringus bank. because progress is slow, but since everything we know about politics has been turned on its head in this crazy election, maybe it's time to push through some new amendments, with tonight's hashtag, #newconstitutionalrights examples: "the right to fight to party" and "the right to arm bears."
wife. yep, she wears crocs. [laughing] >> chris: nic swardson. >> the right to vote for a new election. shut the [beep] up. [beep] [beep] >> chris: bruce campbell. >> i want the right to blow myself.

>> chris: welcome back to @midnight. it's time to play mockbuster video. mockbucker video. for every multi-million-dollar hollywood hit, there are a bunch of lame knock-offs just waiting to trick someone in a grocery store who doesn't notice that "frozen," is not the same thing as "frozen land," or "snow queen," or "who dis frosty bitch?" [laughing] okay fine, that last one's not real. it should be real.

>> amazing. chris: now he can go home. that's a baseball joke. my favorite part is how the announcers ran commentary because it's the only exciting thing that's ever happened at a major league baseball game, and think about it, it's true. kwraoedians i would like you to do a sports announcer call to call another event in a couple's
upgrade season's here. i got my new iphone 7 from sprint. zero dollars. sprint? i'm hearing good things about the network all the networks are great now. we're talking within a 1% difference in reliability of each other. and, sprint saves you 50% on most current national carrier rates. if you got 1% more haircut than me today, would you really pay twice as much? no i wouldn't. copy that. switch to sprint. get the iphone 7 for zero dollars with eligible trade in. plus save 50% off most current national carrier rates. don't let a 1% difference cost you twice as much. whoooo! for people with hearing loss, visit sprintrelay.com. our food was pretty darn close, too. we're keepin' that spirit alive with fajitas, a salad, and a mini molten cake for just $10. chili's. chilin' since '75.
