Thursday evening marked the inimitable, upsettingly talented Jessica Williams’ last episode of The Daily Show before leaving to start work on her own show for Comedy Central. I’m not sure what caliber send-off would have satisfied me, but this wasn’t it! Maybe I love too deeply?
When you look at a baby, what stands out to you?
After months of poll numbers collapsing like a once proud but increasingly weary hairdo, Rand Paul was relegated to the “undercard” GOP debate planned for Thursday night, at No One Is Paying Attention O’Clock. He is not going, because this represents the media and the RNC toying with him.
Last night, Jon Stewart stopped by The Daily Show. But it wasn’t to reminisce; it was to castigate Congress for sitting around once again doing dick-all for 9/11 first responders.
Before America can escape the 2016 election, everybody’s gotta vote in both the primaries and the general. And you know what that means: dealing with voting machines. Oh God, the voting machines.
Paul Ryan is willing to run for Speaker of the House... under some conditions. For instance, a workplace that allows him quality time with his family, the kind of workplace he doesn’t support for the rest of America. The Daily Show’s Jessica Williams outlined some additional riders that he might attach to his…
Apparently, conservative activists have decided that Paul Ryan, of all people, just isn’t conservative enough for the position of Speaker of the House of Representatives. Looking for a little context on why? The Daily Show explains that he got “Playboy’d.”
Despite his weirdly somnolent voice and demeanor, presidential candidate Ben Carson managed to stir up some controversy this week with his opinions on gun control and dogged insistence that he’d know how to handle a mass shooter. Obviously, The Daily Show had some shit to say about that.
On September 12, 2000, Jon Stewart started The Daily Show’s Headlines segment with the following joke: “The GOP accused of using subliminal advertising. Bush says, ‘Why would we advertise underwater?’” After a run of jokes about then-candidate George W. Bush, Stewart chuckles, “He’s making it so easy.”
Jon Stewart admitted on The Daily Show that gleeful, wall-to-wall Donald Trump coverage is basically the same thing as frantically jacking it every hour on the hour. But can you blame them?
Somehow, despite it all, Donald Trump continues to cling to his pretense at a serious presidential campaign. And so The Daily Show continues to cover his antics with outright glee. The latest: His fellow Republicans are shocked and appalled that he’d speak badly of John McCain! Wow, it’s almost like Donald Trump is a…
Jon Stewart scrapped whatever plans he had for the Daily Show last night and devoted a pretty stunning two full segments to railing about the mass shooting in Charleston, South Carolina.
We've heard lots of hot takes on what made the racist dopes of Sigma Alpha Epsilon's Oklahoma chapter such racist dopes, but none was hotter than Morning Joe's: it's all because of that damn rap music. Wow. Does anybody have a pair of shades, to shield me from blinding light and heat of this take?
Whoa: Jon Stewart is leaving The Daily Show?!
About nine-tenths of what Congress does is useless. Every so often they manage to pass a budget or something, but for the most part, they just furtively re-decorate their offices and turn oxygen into carbon dioxide. And, as the Daily Show pointed out last night, occasionally deliver stinging, unneccessary, completely…
What could be more fun than the lead-up to the Republican presidential primaries, when people like Donald Trump and Sarah Palin make their usual, unintentionally hilarious Running For President noises? But as the Daily Show pointed out last night, Palin's recent speech at the Iowa Freedom Summit crossed into...…
The Daily Show heads to Austin this week, for a string of Texas-themed jokes (Guns! The death penalty! Hats! Everything is so big!) and, last night, a chat with Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis. But first, they tackled how Texas dealt with its recent brush with Ebola.
The midterm elections are coming, and this time the Republican Party wants YOUR vote, ladies. Not by revamping their platform and selecting candidates that don't say horrifying, sexist shit—don't be silly! No, as the Daily Show's Kirsten Schaalexplained last night, the GOP is producing a bunch of ads putting…
The controversial Daily Show segment that left Washington Redskins fans feeling "defamed" and "in tears" aired on Comedy Central last night. If you've been wondering how on Earth these brave defenders of the offensive Redskins team name and logo could end up feeling so victimized, well, here are your answers.
