From The Hollywood Reporter:
THR: What do you consider how late-night has advanced to cowl the Trump administration?
Late-night has at all times been fairly topical. The one bother is now everybody has the identical matter. (Laughs.) It’s all miserable Trump stuff. And so they all do a terrific job. Seth Meyers is a good author; Jimmy Kimmel does a great job; Jimmy Fallon does a terrific job. I like Stephen Colbert, Trevor Noah [on Comedy Central] and Samantha Bee [on TBS]. The difficulty is that there’s such negativity now. Once I did the present, Bush was dumb and Clinton was attractive and it was human issues. Now it’s all anti-women, anti-LGBT, anti-Muslim, anti-Mexican, anti-Salvadoran; it’s such a adverse factor. God bless all of the late-night hosts, they make it humorous, however in the end, it’s miserable. You don’t actually watch late-night TV to get away from actuality anymore; now it’s extra in your face. You snigger however then you definitely go to mattress going, “Oh man, the world is actually fairly tough.”And it’s not, it’s one man that causes all these issues!
THR: Who’re you watching? Who do you assume is doing their greatest work proper now?
I’m a joke man; I don’t actually watch the movie star interviews as a result of I’ve interviewed all these folks already. I watch Seth Meyers, Fallon, Kimmel. I do attempt to watch all of them. I like to listen to their jokes. That’s the toughest factor to do — write a joke — and it’s actually exhausting when it’s a must to write principally the identical joke each evening. I don’t imply that in an insulting method. And so they do it, they’re actually inventive and actually humorous. It’s not the lazy type of model of a joke you’ve heard earlier than. Individuals are actually writing great things and it’s spectacular.
Informationliberation.com stories: All of the exhibits are unwatchable. They don’t write jokes anymore, they only ship DNC speaking factors and their dwell viewers serves as amusing observe.
What number of totally different variations of “Drumpf” and “Blumpf” can an individual take heed to?
The common late-night viewer is a liberal with Trump Derangement Syndrome who watches these exhibits for remedy.
The actual kings of comedy lately are nameless trolls on 4Chan and Twitter who’re fully unrestrained by political correctness.
