Seth Meyers

Obama

It was hilarious. Colbert's and Stewart's remarks in their shows afterwards was also pretty sweet.

President Obama laughing a bit too hard at Seth Meyers' Bin Laden joke is one for the history books.

Uuhm, what foreign country are you from and why isn't it letting me watch your video from there?

But yes Colbert made that joke as well [Smile]

As well as remarked "It all makes sense now! 'Here's my birth certificate... I bet its going to be in the news for a long time...'"

Colberts "Obama really killed" remark was sweet icing on the cake.

BB, I don't know why it's not working for you. I'm in the U.S., and just checked the link.

Colbert's whole first segment Monday night was comedy gold.

Hmm, it's a CNN video, so that might be why it's blocked. But, regardless, Colbert did it better.

Isn't Canada where the CNN Tower is?

I would totally watch "The President's Speech" which is also admittedly a good name for a movie.

Are you serious? I stopped watching halfway through the trailer. It was neither funny nor interesting. All it was was an overextended joke that wasn't good in the first place. That having been said, every other part of his speech was great.

I thought it was pretty funny ("The President's Speech"). I think a lot of what sold it was the Joe Biden buddy element (that might not have showed up until the second half)
