>> trevor: that's our show for tonight! thank for tuning in! next coming up @midnight. now here it is... your moment of zen. >> back to our experiment here, it's not easy pulling off this piece of meat here, roast beef. it's very hard. it's a lesson learned here. ( laughter ) don't -- don't -- always wear comedy central [cheers and applause] >> chris: it's 29 minutes until midnight when today's hot takes become cold and tomorrow's outrage is just a twinkle in a troll's eye. alright. happy anniversary to the iphone! yeah! [cheers and applause] >> chris: there it is. i love you so much. love you so much.
[laughing] >> chris: no, it's very important. don't neglect the port. do not neglect the port. ten years ago today the revolutionary smart phone and thumb-grease receptacle was introduced at the dianetics seminar for geeks, macworld. take a look. >> it's an ipod, it's a phone, a internet communicator. it's an ipod, it's a phone, is a 3.5-inch porno machine for masturbating in the bathroom at work. you see where we're going with this. i went to the macworld keynote speeches. i object credible. everyone who saw it knew the iphone would be an instant classic. except for the genius who owns the clippers. take a look. there's no chance that the iphone is going to get any significant market share. steve ballmer, 2007. comedians, besides a headphone jack, what would you get the
iphone for its anniversary? >> i would get it one of those edible arrangements. the iphone can't eat it. but -- but the little kids who live in the dorms in china and make the iphones they would love to have food. >> chris: points for that. jan. >> maybe, maybe the factory that makes the iphones will finally get a fire escape. >> chris: okay, points. thomas. >> anal. chris: points. ya, it's a birthday. >> that's what i was going for. that's what i was going for. >> i didn't know that was even in the game. i didn't -- i didn't know it was on the men aou. >> anal is always in the game. chris: next up.
hidden fences. the golden globes were last night, and the stars were out in force for hollywood's fifth or sixth biggest awards show that allows speeches not just awards. to recap: casey affleck appeared to have been bitten by a radioactive rabbi. and "la la land" won big despite being a musical about living in l.a. that doesn't include a song in your heart and a dance in your step and you're two of the most attractive people on the planet. now, in case you didn't know, "hidden figures" and "fences" are two different movies featuring african american leads that both received multiple nominations. but don't tell that to red carpet reporter jenna bush apparently had trouble telling them apart while interviewing pharrell. [laughing] >> chris: i mean -- i meane meal
is not even angry. you just lear him deflate. the only thing this was missing was the curb your enthuse yam muse i am theme. -- e enthusiasm music theme. i know this looks bad. maybe "hidden fences" is a real movie. comedians, give us the tag line for "hidden fences." >> will stevie wonder be able to get his lawn moor business off the ground and avoid the obstacles in suburbia. tune into lifetime original movie, hidden fences. >> chris: i think you just stole the show, dab. points to that. >> i have not seen "hidden
fences." i know you have just have to say it's very important. >> chris: very important. yes. [laughing] >> chris: next: three kings. these three heroes are the stars of a wonderful viral video. no, it's not the disney channel's first crack at a porno, it's a local car commercial gone so horribly wrong, it just feels so horribly right. what is the delightful (/ bleep) up in this video? a: the man freaks out at the camera guy; b: the bear continuously falls on the ice; c: the gopher chugs a bottle of tequila and fills his head with puke. dan. >> uhhh, the bear continues to fall on the ice. b, final answer. >> chris: final answer. you don't want to phone anyone? >> no. hold on. >> chris: that is the correct answer, dan. take a look. >> i wore the wrong size.
[laughing] [laughing] >> chris: i know. the polar bear can't handle the ice. the gopher is fine. probably not the first time that guy has seen a bear ob his stomach. don't worry about it. don't worry about it. it could mean anything. >> do i win a mitsubishi forgetting it right? i would rather have a gopher head full of barf. >> chris: we can arrange that. next: how a playbill becomes a playlaw. bernie sanders is coming to broadway! no, not in tony and tina's wedding, although he's always amazing as tina. "feel the bern, a musical of the people, by the people and for the people" just opened in burlington, vermont, the place where they grow all those coat
factories. the musical takes place in 2132 when sanders returns to earth as some sort of jewish socialist santa claus-- same thing, really, to deliver the gift of socialism to the boys and girls. unfortunately, "feel the bern" has already closed. >> wait, wait, wait. [laughing] [cheers and applause] >> chris: comedians, since one can't get tickets to hamilton for the next three hundred years, what are some other political plays one might see? >> donald and the angry inch. chris: good. that is the end of rapid refresh. let's look at scoreboards and
meet our kphaoed jabs. dan is here with 300 points. [cheers and applause] >> chris: with 300 points it's betsy. [cheers and applause] >> chris: and with 300 points it's thomas! [cheers and applause] >> chris: and now it's time for tonight's #hashtagwars. last night, a whopping seven golden globes were handed to "la la land." the film harkens back to a magical version of los angeles, where you can dance in a park at night without seeing someone jerk off in a bush right before you get shot.
so, in honor of hollywood's nostalgia trip, tonight's i'm putting 60 seconds on the clock. starting now! >> gengaskahn air. >> assassination of the arts duke of hazards. >> there is something about mary todd lincoln. >> gone with the playing. chris: betsy. >> there is nothing to cape fear but cape fear itself. >> chris: yes, very good. points. dan. >> ask not what your country can do for you, ask who framed roger rabbit. >> chris: points. tommy. >> big trouble, little china syndrome. >> chris: points. >> -- the santa claus two. chris: points. >> selma and louise. chris: ahhh that is -- - points. betsy. >> dudes, where is my lindberg
