Stephen Makes a Ben Carson Entrance
Stephen’s grand entrance to this episode was a hilarious spoof on Dr. Ben Carson’s entrance to the GOP debate on February 6th. I’ve got to give it up to the Stephen and the Late Show crew, because it was spot on! Paul Dinello made an appearance as a crew member desperately trying to get Stephen onto the stage. Paul tried pushing and dragging him out. When that didn’t work, Paul had to resort to showing Stephen a tennis ball and throwing it out onto the stage. It is always a pleasure to see Stephen and Paul acting together!
During the monologue, Stephen discussed the GOP debate, focusing on Chris Christie destroying Marco Rubio for saying the say statement over and over again.
Marco Rubio [said twice in the exact same manner]: Let’s dispel with this fiction that Barack Obama doesn’t know what he’s doing. He knows exactly what he’s doing.
Chris Christie: That’s what Washington DC does – the memorized 25 second speech that is exactly what his advisors gave him.
- Rubio repeated the same phrase so many times that he summoned Candy Man, who appeared behind him and killed his campaign.
Peyton Manning Is the MVP of Selling Stuff
Over at the desk Stephen was still feeling the buzz from last night’s Super Bowl. And Peyton Manning was no doubt buzzed after the game, because he mention Budweiser in several post-game interviews. Manning also endorsed Papa John’s Pizza by kissing pizza magnate Papa John on the field right after his victory.
Stephen Reveals Even More McCringleberry Footage
Thanks to sports journalists Key & Peele, Stephen has even more footage of excessive football celebrations from McCringleberry and Mathias.
Interview – Bill O’Reilly
Stephen and Bill “Papa Bear” O’Reilly had a very interesting conversation. They both seemed to be passive-aggressive in their comments to one another. Stephen is clearly intellectually superior to O’Reilly, who consistently spouted his usual Fox News lies. O’Reilly insisted that Trump and Sanders “are really the same guy.” Now that is some batsh*t crazy information! When O’Reilly did an impression of Sanders, Stephen asked him if he was having a stroke. Stephen bested O’Reilly once again with his razor sharp wit and hilarious remarks.
Interview – Eddie George
Eddie George, a former Heisman trophy winner and NFL player, explained how he got into acting and how he is now starring in “Chicago” on Broadway.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Featuring Jamila Woods — “White Privilege II”
This was a powerfully stirring performance on the extremely important subject of Black Lives Matter.
