There’s a certain theatrical nihilism to Donald Trump that lends itself well to Batman’s greatest nemesis, as we’ve seen Mark Hamill repeatedly demonstrate with his Joker-ized take on Trump tweets. As it turns out, the parallel works eerily well with other Jokers, as The Daily Show discovers with horrifying precision.

It seems like forever and a day ago that Broad City bubbled over with excitement at a guest appearance from Hillary Clinton. Worse yet, we’ll have to wait until summer for Season 4 to check in with Abbi and Ilana officially, but Hack Into Broad City is here to save the day with a new short! And by “save,” we mean “panic, scream, and curse the inauguration in the most NSFW way possible.”
If ever there were a time for President Obama to show his anger, Key & Peele’s Luther would be it. Watch the pair make their final appearance on The Daily Show, as Luther tries (and fails spectacularly) to keep his anger toward the new President-Elect in check.
We’ll miss a great many things about both Obama and Comedy Central’s Key & Peele, but at least they’ll go down in a blaze of glory together. So it is, that Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele will bring Obama and anger-translator Luther back for one last appearance on tonight’s Daily Show.
It’s going to be hard to say goodbye to seven years at TelAmeriCorp, but if anyone deserved a slow jam tribute on their way out the door, its the boys to men of Workaholics. Get ready to hang up those phones and get weird, as Comedy Central’s seventh and final season puts out its first farewell trailer.
Comedy Central shows tend to get a bit more spaced out as comedians rise in profile, but is Broad City going the way of Inside Amy Schumer? Abbi and Ilana are back to assure us that Broad City Season 4 is still on, albeit debuting a bit later in 2017 than in previous years.
The very first Drunk History in 2007 started with the duel between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, leaving it uncertain if we’d ever see a retelling from the Hamilton master, Lin-Manuel Miranda. Thankfully, the day has arrived, as a drunk Miranda leads a new all-star retelling of Hamilton’s life with a clip from Monday’s Drunk History.
South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker had some understandable frustration with reworking Wednesday’s “The Very First Gentleman” into “Oh, Jeez” after the election; so much so, that they made history of their own in the process. The revamped episode apparently featured the series’ first uncensored F-bomb in the initial broadcast.
South Park may have been confident enough in its election predictions for 2008 and 2012 to use their quick turnaround on Wednesday’s episodes, but 2016 may be their biggest challenge yet. Following an early call for “The Very First Gentleman,” tonight’s South Park has been reworked into “Oh, Jeez” with a new clip.
The quick turnaround of South Park episodes famously enabled Matt Stone and Trey Parker to address the 2008 election “About Last Night … ,” as well in 2012 basing an episode off Obama’s re-election. Seasons 19 and 20 have gone even deeper into the political process, though the first promo for “The Very First Gentleman” seems to predict the race has come to an end.
