In the wake of some recent comments from President Donald Trump, Stephen Colbert is teaming up with Jimmy Fallon and, eventually, Conan O’Brien for a cross-show cold open about one simple subject: Dealing with criticism, on social media and at various political events from the leader of the country. That’s not an easy thing to deal with, though the three comedians are all smart enough to know how to transfer the criticism over into cash.
In the video that CarterMatt has for you below, you can get a taste as to what the three are doing tonight. It kicks off with Fallon video-calling Colbert at the end of writing his monologue — at that point, the two have a little bit of a talk about some of the comments that were made about them and how difficult that can be to deal with. On the other side of that, they call Conan to get some of his take, only to learn that Conan apparently had no idea that Trump was even President.
While we’re not going to say that this is even remotely the funniest thing that the three guys have done in the political realm, we do give them a whole lot of credit for coming together to do something like this in a single forum. Colbert and Fallon do have a good late-night relationship that go back for years, and given everything that happened with Conan and NBC we’re always impressed to see him involved with anything related to The Tonight Show. We rather like this new era where there isn’t necessarily any of the contention that there once was within the late-night community. Things are more positive and cheerful now — granted, they don’t need to be contentious with each other given that they can just be contentious with the people in the White House.
