Between the death of Osama bin Laden, the President's press conference about it (which interrupted Donald Trump's Celebrity Apprentice
) and this weekend's hilarious White House Correspondents' Dinner, at which both Seth Meyers and President Obama raked Donald Trump, his birther stance and his faux presidency run across the coals, last night was an all-around field day for the late night hosts, prime time and cable alike.
And the boys did not disappoint, even in the moments that weren't about bin Laden. Will Ferrell's long-awaited shaving of Conan O'Brien's beard, dubbed the Beardpocalypse, was arguably the funniest moment of the entire evening.
If you missed out on any of the laughter and celebration, and continued mockery of Donald Trump, don't worry. Here are the highlights.
The Daily Show:
If you expected Jon Stewart to give a measured and ambivalent response to the death of Osama bin Laden, you're pretty bad at expectations. But if you expected genuine relief, happiness and several puns, you're in for a treat.
The Colbert Report:
Stephen finally gets to throw the "We Got Bin Laden" party he's been planning for years. My favorite part is the moldy cake. Late Night with Jimmy Fallon:
Donald Trump interrupted Jimmy to complain about Obama interrupting Celebrity Apprentice
. It was brilliant and spot-on, like so many of Jimmy's impressions. Conan:
And lastly, after all that heavy stuff, kick back and laugh your beard off as Will Ferrell and his special razor finally shave off Conan's beard. Did you see Andy in his knitted beard? Deeelightful!
Now we just have to wait and see what the South Park
boys make of all this. I can't wait.(Image courtesy of NBC)
