tv midnight With Chris Hardwick Comedy Central October 19, 2016 11:36pm-12:07am PDT
address this. we need to call ants spicy boys. [cheers and applause] >> chris: thank you. but a very real issue right now is global hacking club wikileaks, which has been accused of trying to influence the election by releasing thousands clinton campaign emails. wikileaks is fronted by julian assange, the australian-born computer programmer who looks like klaus kringle, santa's rebellious son. since 2012, assange has been running the organization from inside the ecuadorian embassy in the united kingdom, where he was granted asylum to escape extradition to sweden. one note: not complicated enough! well, this week, in response to american pressure, the ecuadorian government punished assange by making every millennial's nightmare come true: they cut off his internet! comedians, now that assange has lost internet access, how's he going to pass the time in the embassy? ben roy. >> act like a cat and chase the laser sites from the nsa
snipers. >> chris: points. andrew. >> steal the wifi from the peruvian embassy next door. >> chris: adam clayton-holland. >> spend his timex posing the en herpbt corruption in the secret santa program or as it's referred to internally. el centcringo. >> chris: you know, tinder is the dating app with more ghosting (/ bleep/ )-bois than a haunted strip club. well, yesterday, they rolled-out a new premium service called tinder boost, which allows users to pay money to have their profiles temporarily pop up first in people's feeds, dramatically increasing the likelihood of finding a match. so, it's sort of like a pokeémon lure, but for herpes. by the way if you're playing at home that would be cold-asaur. >> oh, no. >> what -- [ applause ] >> chris: you're going to catch
them all. comedians, what are some other pay services tinder could add? andrew. >> alternative back story to how you met. >> chris: yes. points. ben roy. >> fast pass to get to the front of the line at any planned parenthood. >> chris: that's a great idea. >> that's what i'm talking about. >> chris: next, "a very good boy." it's hard to look at the internet in 2016 and not feel a little betrayed. the place we once turned to for "chocolate rains" and "numa numas" is now a swirling poop galaxy of hot benghazi takes and anonymous all-caps trolls. but deep within the bowels of youtube, this man has been crafting a healing unguent to soothe our online wounds. this is youtuber jon sudano, and he has given us something truly amazing-- and it's not just the fact that his chin beard makes him look the same upside down as he does right-side up. [laughing]
[laughing] >> hypnotic. >> you can't stop staring at it. >> a easter island statue. is it a slow-jam love song to his deceased ferret or a vocal mash-up of evanescence and smash mouth? adam? >> i'm preying it's vocal mash-up of evanescence and smash mouth. >> chris: show us ♪ hey now ♪ you're a rock star ♪ get your show on ♪ all that glitters is gold. only -- >> chris: i mean. [ applause ] >> chris: that is the best. in the world. >> i don't care what happens here tonight. he won internet. >> chris: he won all of it. shoot your own horn this is
charlie hook. proud owner of a trumpet, a gun and a youtube account. comedians, what is this great american about to do with a trumpet and a gun: a, play the "addams family theme"; b, defend himself against trumpet-bullies; c, like he does every morning, wake up his family? firing a gun and playing a trumpet. >> a. it works too perfect. please, a. >> chris: ya, ya. check it out. ♪ ♪ [laughing] >> chris: oh, my god. it's hard not to imagine rather than a tripod, that camera's being held there by his wife. >> with an apple on her head. he has a bunch of these on his account, gungrams, and he takes requests!
this was our favorite. ♪ [laughing] >> the best part about all of this is this is a basketball court. >> chris: yes. the playground, a children's playground. he's playing [beep] grand theft mario in front of a playground. let's check the scoreboards. tonight, we have three stars from "those who can't," thursdays on trutv. with tbd points, it's andrew orvedahl. [cheers and applause] >> chris: with 400 points it's ben roy. [cheers and applause] >> chris: with 500 points a man so nice he was named thrice
adam cayton-holland. [cheers and applause] >> chris: and now, it's time for tonight's "hashtag wars." we've all spent the last year having this election jammed down our throats, but do you ever wish it could be literally shoved down your throat? well, now it can! that's because the instagram account @ediblegovernment has been busy making food sculptures of the candidates like this squash hillary clinton and baby carrot donald trump, which to me -- so, in the spirit of the candidates' flavorful facsimiles, tonight's hashtag is #politicalfoods. examples: "crunchwrap supreme court" and "vladimir pudding." i'm putting 60 seconds on the clock, begin. >> marco rubio use its. chris: andrew. >> make america great again. >> international house of -- and pancakes. >> gop f changs.
>> eggs benedict arnold. >> smother negretion. chris: 200 points for. that. >> ask not what your country can do for you but what you would do for a klondike bar. >> chris: adam. >> -- trafficky. chris: points. andrew. >> thomas jefferson soup plantation. >> chris: points. [laughing] >> he had one, one of them. >> he's [beep] a bunch of the soups. >> chris: ben. >> fd arbey's. chris: the best. >> that's good. >> if you eat enough of it you can't get out of your chair either. >> chris: that's the end of "hashtag wars." send us your #politicalfoods and tag them @midnight to keep the game going. we'll be right back with more "@midnight."
our tweet-of-the-day from last night's "hashtag war" was sent to us by @connorvideos. well done! i'm here in bristol, virginia. and now...i'm in bristol, tennessee. on this side of the road is virginia... and on this side it's tennessee. no matter which state in the country you live in, you could save hundreds on car insurance by switching to geico. look, i'm in virginia... i'm in tennessee... virginia... tennessee... and now i'm in virginessee. see how much you could save on car insurance. or am i in tennaginia? hmmm...

>> chris: welcome back to "@midnight." it's time to play "basic straining." youtube has countless videos with step-by-step explanations for how to speak klingon or how to perform an emergency tracheotomy, but it also has ton of -- which you get after speaking klingon. but it also has a ton of staggeringly basic step-by-step guides apparently intended for moon-brained simpletons who somehow survived to adulthood without knowing how to tie their own shoes. comedians, i'll show you a clip from a basic how-to video. for 250 points, you give me another step from the guide. first up, new to the concept of hygiene? check out how to wash your hair. >> step 3, thoroughly wet your hair with warm not hot water.
hot water causes damaged hair shafts. don't wash your hair every day. >> chris: what's another step in this illuminating guide. >> step two, keep your mouth closed so you don't drowned standing up. [cheers and applause] >> chris: points, points. adam clayton-holland. >> drink another shower beer and pretend you're not so lonely. >> chris: points. andrew. >> step 216, rinse again. chris: over and over again.

>> chris: that's ridiculous. he jammed it in. didn't take it to dinner, go down on it, one of these first. come on. what is another step from this gas guru? ben. >> now you have enough gas to keep your car idling outside of the elementary school playground. [ applause ] >> chris: where a strange man has been reported firing a gun and playing a trumpet. [laughing] kp-rbd have you been doing it wrong all these years. check out the right way to pet a dog. >> faster petting and increased pressure will get your dog excited.

[ applause ] >> chris: that's the end of "basic straining." it's time for our live challenge, "easy does it." [cheers and applause] >> chris: we have all experienced together there is an endless array of overly
descriptive tutorial videos that probably don't need to exist, like how to put on underwear. or how to make a slam dunk. oh, that's how you make a slam dunk. it's so easy, anyone can do it! [ applause ] >> no, you know what [beep] that kid. that's what he gets for trying new things. >> yep. chris: there are many complex topics that would actually benefit from a basic breakdown, such as the trans-pacific partnership or why they've made 15 games called "final fantasy." think about it, they think about it. i'm playing one right now. so, over the break, i want you to create your own how-to tutorial video breaking down a complex topic in terms that anyone can understand. we'll get your answers after the break and be right back with more "@midnight!"
