Things We Saw Today: Larry Wilmore & Stephen Colbert Reminisce On How Politicians Can’t Take a Joke

Recommended Videos

Both Larry Wilmore and Stephen Colbert have had the dubious honor of hosting a White House Correspondents’ Dinner, and they both had a tough time of it. Or did they? I mean, I thought they both did pretty well. Really tough crowd to please there, though. Anyway, here’s the two political comedy aficionados trading stories on The Late Show about their experiences hosting the dinner and the importance of speaking truth to power (in the form of jokes, that is). (via Deadline)

  • If you own a Mac and use OS X, you might want to go ahead and update it, because there’s some security risks that need a patch-up.
  • Jon Polito, a character actor best known for his work in Coen Brothers’ movies like The Big Lebowski and Miller’s Crossing, passed away today at the age of 65.
  • Here’s John Legend and Christine Teigan–who’re married to one another, by the way–getting political and being adorable on Twitter:
  • The release date for the next Uncharted game keeps on changing. It was going to come out in June 2017, but now, that’s no longer happening.
  • Elizabeth Banks won’t be directing Pitch Perfect 3, but she’s found someone new to take on the franchise: Trish Sie, who has previously directed Step Up All In. (via The AV Club)
  • Let’s enjoy this super-cut of Tim Curry laughing, shall we? (via Boing Boing)

What’d you see out there today?
