tv midnight With Chris Hardwick Comedy Central January 28, 2016 12:01am-12:32am PST
100 question. i deserve a little tea for that. thank you. i don't deserve this. i don't deserve this. this happened on facebook! the world's largest social media site has never been known for its nuance. the facebook "like" button is great for photos of a friend's birthday party, but not quite right for someone's post about their divorce. but how else can you show the appropriate response? besides posting a reaction gif like this, i mean. ♪ [laughing] >> chris: ya! now you're free to hook up with these hunks. that's the good news.
the bad news they're all 68 now. luckily, facebook is rolling out new response buttons. fit for everything from your cousin's brunch to your grandma's ill-advised participation in "titty tuesday". along with the "like", you can also use: "love", "haha", "yay", "wow", "sad", and "angry". now these are all pretty straightforward, but i'm having a little trouble wrapping my brain around that "wow" button. this one here. this one. when would you go "wow." comedians, what's a facebook status that would get you a "wow"? esther, go. >> my boyfriend's wife sent me a friend request. >> chris: brandon. >> finally saw my mom's [beep] chris: wow. ryan. >> guess who got casted in woody
allen's network series my -- daughter. >> chris: damn it. >> wow, wow. chris: time to start "@midnight." [cheers and applause] captioning sponsored by comedy central >>chris: welcome to "@midnight". i'm chris hardwick. last night, i saw something truly amazing on reddit. i went to twitch and saw this man bernie katzman, aka piano impro man, did a live stream where he riffed piano music based on people's comments. twelve hours this man played yesterday with over a hundred thousand viewers. i fell in love with him and had to have him on the show to help us out. welcome bernie katzman, everyone. [cheers and applause]
bernie, thank you for bringing music to the show today. >> hey, what a pleasure. thanthank you, chris. >> chris: also i'm slightly pissed i think more people watch your twitch stream than this show. that's upsetting. >> you are funny. chris: why didn't we have you on like two years ago. this is per tpeblg. could you of been our paul schaefer. >> you know if i shaved my head maybe i would have a chance. >> chris: alright. we are sending you out for a full body waxing. you requested it. >>chris: tonight's comedians are: performing at u.c.b. franklin in l.a. february 10th, it's esther povitsky. [cheers and applause] >>chris: from "hot takes," thursdays on comedy central's snapchat discover, it's brandon wardell. [cheers and applause] >>chris: performing at acme
comedy company in minneapolis february 9th through the 14th, it's ryan stout. [cheers and applause] >> chris: you can't do the cool millennial body moving looking like you're ready to debate in the republican -- >> i'm the elder millennial of the group. >>chris: ripped from today's internet headlines, it's "rapid refresh." [cheers and applause] >> chris: and now let's look at a lift of the most trendingest topics on the web today. the first thing we're gonna talk about is bread. 486-time "oprah" magazine cover -- >> she earned it. chris: anyways she propped once again that she can move any product on the planet. even bread. here's the media sorceress
shouting about the popular dough-and-flour-based staple in a video she made for weight watchers. >> this is the joy for me. i love bread. [laughing] >> chris: i love it to be like this big. ahhh, just some thick dark rye. [cheers and applause] >> chris: oprah. [cheers and applause] >> chris: i'm kidding. everyone knows oprah eats pita. oprah's bread lust instantly boosted weight watchers and made she made a quick $12.5 million in her shares in the company, proving that she could probably sell a box of used cat litter. comedians, what's a horrible oprah-endorsed product she could sell with no problem? >> oprahs used diaper club. chris: her used diapers or found diapers? >> gail.
chris: points. >> esther. >> john travolta custom closets. [cheers and applause] >> chris: can i pick a tag line. >> please. chris: closets so great you will never wan to come out of them. [ applause ] >>chris: on to our next topic: audio quiz. here's a piece of audio from a video that's been going around the internet: (growling noises) >> chris: okay. so what you're listening to is sound of a current movie star before they were famous. what is it? a.) the rock's unfortunate voiceover audition for "rugrats". b.) vin diesel advertising the ninja turtle's knockoff "street sharks". c.) channing tatum filming a softcore porn for showtime. ryan stout. >> i think vin diesel advertising the ninja turtle's knockoff.

chris: okay. ryan. >> kareem abdul birth defect. chris: perfect. they will let him play. that's the end of rapid refresh. and now it's time for tonight's #hashtagwars. tuesday was national spouse's day. the one day of the year when people are supposed to take some special time to celebrate their spouses, kind of like valentine's day except instead of going on a romantic date, you catch up on "x-files" and pass out in your marital bed. you can do it next week. but since the word "spouse" seems kind of antiquated these days, we thought we'd open it up and help people celebrate their significant others with tonight's hashtag: #baein3words #baein3words examples: "anime body pillow", "my drug dealer", and "actually a cat". i'm putting 60 seconds on the clock. begin. ryan stout. >> charges per hour. hris: points esther. >> orders extra fries. >> james earl jones.
