tv midnight With Chris Hardwick Comedy Central December 12, 2016 11:31pm-12:02am PST
important. and i would add everybody's got a different role to play. if chris rock's doing standup, then there is a benefit to him doing something that is different from the president of the united states doing something. for one thing, you know, he doesn't have to edit his language quite as carefully because i am still subject to, you know, some restraints -- >> trevor: you vile have your last few days. >> those seven words george carlin talked about, i can't use those, as a general proposition because a lot of children are watching. i try to comport myself in a way that my mother would approve of. >> trevor: well, i just want to say thank you so much for being on the show. thank you for being an inspiration and, most importantly, thank you for giving me an opportunity to see what i would look like after eight years of the toughest job
in the world. >> you know, i will say that i resent how young and good looking you are because i used to think of myself in those terms, and it's been downhill for quite some time. >> trevor: thank you, sir. >> thank you, man. >> trevor: thank you very much. >> appreciate it. there is no typical day.
...at marvel studios. we are very much hands-on producers. if my office... ...becomes a plane or an airport the surface pro's perfect. fast and portable but also light. you don't do this 14 hours a day, 7 days a week for... ...decades if you don't feel it in your heart. listen, i know my super power is to not ever sleep. that's it. that's the only super power i have. this year at t-mobile, the holidays are on us! switch your family of four to t-mobile, get unlimited everything, and we'll give you $800.
[cheers and applause]and make it >> chris: it's 29 minutes until midnight. here's everything online worth getting hacked by the russians today. uber just released a controversial new set of community guidelines that emphatically clarify... no sex in ubers. at all! [booing] >> chris: boober. [laughing] >> chris: no sex in ubers. not even with the drivers! how are passengers supposed to control themselves? personally, i find nothing sexier than being in the back of a dirty prius and nodding politely while hearing about someone's band that's about to take off. i see this as a challenge. comedians, what's a line you could use on an uber driver to make them break their no sex oath? >> i'll give you a tip for your tip. >> chris: alright. points. >> i would say, hey this water
bottle doesn't fit in the cup holder. when he turns around it is sticking out my butt. >> chris: points. [laughing] >> i moe it's not allowed but would you like to have sex with me. >> chris: alright. points. points. [cheers and applause] >> chris: do you want five stars or not? i will give you 69 stars. >> you said uber x. [laughing] >> chris: a hundred extra points for james. >> chris: next up, christmas scatalog. struggling to find a christmas gift for the insufferable a-hole in your life? well, fret no more! gwyneth paltrow, the tesla driver's martha stewart, has released goop's holiday shopping guide, and just by existing, it's given trump's more electoral votes. [laughing] goop calls it their "ridiculo,
but awesome gift guide," and it's certainly one of those two things. comedians, which of these actual items from the goop gift guide is the most expensive? a) a 20 foot yurt b) a porcelain banana. c) a pelvic floor exercise tracker. d) a leather bicycle >> chris: by the way all of those are for [beep] james. >> think it's the leather bicycle. it's probably grass fed leather. [laughing] >> that's expensive. chris: that sounds like a good guess but the yurt is the most expensive, at just north of $8k, so if you're doing -- it's sold out. ahhh. sorry, kyle and briana you have to settle for two playstation 4s instead.
the holiday sweater -- i'm rocking it today. my second choice. i couldn't find a smurf orgy sweater. if you have one send it to me. next, walk for what? we're right in the middle of holiday parade season-- which always leads to that age old debate-- parades, a complete waste of time? or an elaborate excuse today drink. i guess parade. ♪ [laughing] >> chris: one of our writers, jordan morris pointed out it looked like the panda had lap dance surgery and didn't get all
of the extra skin. comedians, please answer the question posed by twitter user, @hotgamersex, "yo what the (/ bleep/ ) is this (/ bleep/ )" morgan murphy. >> i think that's purge day for registered sex offenders. >> chris: points for that. [laughing] >> chris: jay. >> a heart warming corporate intellectual properties parade. >> chris: points. no more sex in the ubers. >> chris: next up tinder loving care. a woman from wesleyan university set reddit on fire with screenshots of her tinder profile, which shows her taking a selfie with an unwitting companion. comedians, what is in her profile picture? a dog orgy or a mid poop santa
claus. >> dog orgy. chris: what do you think it is? >> dog orgy. chris: alright. just got a window into your souls. a little window into your souls. for those who said mid poop santa sorry it's the dog orgy. >> yes! yes! >> chris: if you want to know what the bummed out dog in the middle feels like smash this lipstick into your forehead. [laughing] >> chris: heat is up a little bit and mush it in. >> gross. chris: i'm sorry to this guy's mom in the front row. thankfully there is another angle. another angle. >> a tail. chris: tail action. >> what -- chris: they're tailing.

outlets-- but one of the harshest takedowns yet was published this weekend on teen vogue. the magazine for people too young to vote wrote "donald trump is gaslighting america"-- saying trump attempts to "destabilize journalism as a check on the power of government" and also, like, his foundation is wack. this is a pretty big tonal shift from teen vogue's usual fare, like "the cutest crop tops your dad won't let you leave the house in." or the cutest crop tops your dad would like you to leave the house in. so comedians, i want you to follow in teen vogue's footsteps and give us another unexpectedly woke article we might see in another publication. we'll have our comedians' answers and name the winner when we come back on @midnight. [cheers and applause] hi, i'm paul. i used to ask if you could hear me now with verizon, but i switched to sprint because their network reliability is within 1% of verizon. and get this, sprint has this crazy deal on their new unlimited plan with the 3rd, 4th, and 5th line for free.
