Reactions from Jim Gaffigan, Trevor Noah, Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Kimmel, Patton Oswalt, Jessica Kirson, Mark Normand, Joe List, Costaki Economopoulos and more!
This is a bonus episode for Monday march 28th. The “regular” episode appears lower in the feed.
Let’s do this code on O’Brien just saw the will Smith’s lap. Anybody have a late night show I can borrow for tomorrow, Kim all. What was the Vegas line on the fresh prince punching little penny in the face. Patent Oswald. Very nervous for my shows at the Irvine improv tonight, anyone have a catcher’s mask.
I can borrow Trevor Noah. Who’s hosting the Grammys pretty soon. WT, a F that wasn’t scripted. Jim Gaffigan. I’m still disgusted. We don’t deserve the brilliance of Christmas.
Someone named Jay Reiner MD. When you’re a star, they let you do anything. You can do anything. Signed Donald Trump and will Smith. Kathy Griffin. Let me tell you something. It’s very bad practice to walk up on stage and physically assault a comedian. Now we all have to worry about who wants to be the next will Smith and comedy clubs and theaters
camel. I know the big story is the slap, but congratulations to Amy Schumer, Wanda Sykes and Regina hall, who were. I hope that isn’t overshadowed by the unpleasantness. Jim Norton at this point, will Smith being a cook is the only thing I truly respect about him. Mark Norman do Ukraine is now sending help to the Oscars because stocky econom Opolis Denzel Washington consult will Smith who consult Chris rock Louis CK was going to do it, but his hands were full
Joe list. I’m just finding out now that there’s not a GI Jane two in the works, Michael Ian black. So disappointing that will Smith played Muhammad Ali, that he couldn’t even knock out. Chris rock Patton Oswalt. Kevin Costner speech was incredible. Believe me, it’s all.
Anybody’s going to be talking about
jail. Co van will Smith doesn’t even know that the guy from Coda signed, I banged Jadah last night. Ouch.
Steve Byrne. Well, there goes my GI Jane material, Sam moral can’t believe a famous celebrity, smacked a comedian on TV and it wasn’t Kanye. Eric Griffin, all these Hollywood people thinking. So we could have just slapped Ricky.
Jen Kirkman. If we’ll still feeling feisty, I have a list of male comedians. I would love him to punch
Dom Herrera. I guess comedy central. Won’t be doing a roast for will Smith
at start TTT. If will Smith had done that to Dave Chappelle Chappelle would be in his third uninterrupted hour of Jaida, Joe. Jessica. Kherson what happened to Chris rock. Doesn’t shock me at all. A lot of people are weak, overly sensitive and rage, mentally unstable, and can’t see the humor in anything anymore.
If you can’t find humor in life, I truly feel sorry for you. What a horrible way to live. Jim Gaffigan was responding to, I don’t know what but tweeted. All right. Bad comparison. On my part, I was trying to make a point, but doesn’t matter, FYI, I didn’t think the joke was brilliant. I said, Chris rock is brilliant.
I still do. And we don’t deserve as brilliance. Please continue to defend physical assault that says so much, that was in response to somebody tweeting at Jim. In Edwards. This is why I don’t watch the Oscars too much violence. Sam moral. That was the biggest hit will. Smith has been involved in since the nineties, Whitney Cummings Scientology wins again.
Sam moral between rockets, a landscape comedians are cool under pressure. Nikki Glaser, the Oscars proved that Hollywood is alive and well still doing what it does best protecting and celebrating disgusting behavior. Mark Normand. Thank God Chris rock. Didn’t take a shot at Alec Baldwin.
Judah Freelander assault is terrifying. And just about everybody at that theater acting like nothing happened as terrifying. What a terrible show Jill list. I think we’re not talking enough about how will Smith initially laughed at the. Sam Morell. Wilson has just won an award for being the best actor but he couldn’t act like a human being during a joke.
Jim Norton will Smith had SAC. Chris rock then helped us all heal by explaining how soft God’s plan for him. His fortune Feimster love will make you do crazy things.
A no David spade, a GI Jean joke, Nikki Glaser. The way everybody was on board at the end of gross, gross gross Roy Wood Jr. Trevor Noah, you got to host the Grammys from behind some check cashing glass.
It’s real out here. Fam Sam moral. Again, mazing. You can still reach groks levels of comedian and he still play gigs with no security. Nikki Glaser. Wait. Remember when we’ll laughed at first?
And Joe’s Zimmerman tweeted. What was your worst gig ever? Chris Rock’s answer. Well, way back when I was 57, this unhinged man took the stage and he hit me and security didn’t do anything. I had to settle them down myself. And right after I got off stage, they gave the guy in a war. Uh, hi, I’m Johnny Mack with your daily comedy news.
Did you hear, will Smith slapped Chris rock at the Oscars? Did you hear about this? Is anyone talking about this? This is a full on bonus episode. There was a normal episode in the feed earlier today, recapping the Oscars Amy Schumer part. Anyway. Remember when that was the story and the regular news that don’t miss out on the regular episodes.
It is a little before noon. I have been putting this together for four or five hours and could continue the jokes coming out of comedian. Twitter are just endless. So what I’m going to do here this episode is all Chris rock. tomorrow’s episode will be quote unquote normal, and I’m just going to sprinkle in Oscar stuff as it develops in Casey and missed it.
Chris rock got up to present. He was riffing. He made a joke about Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz. And then he turned his attention to will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith.
And he said, Jada, I love ya. GI Jane T I can’t wait to see you in reference to her hair. Will Smith. Appeared to laugh at the joke, then suddenly started storming the stage. Now I was watching this live and it looked like it was a bit, even to the point where, when will Smith slapped Chris rock?
I still thought it was a bit. And then when ABC hit the dump button, the mute button for like a good, full 90 seconds, I was like, wait, what happened? And then when they cut to will Smith. Clearly, visibly angry, even though we couldn’t initially hear the words, I was like, Ooh, what happened a few minutes later, somebody shared the uncensored version from the Australian TV feed on Twitter. And that’s when the Oscars, it was a complete distracting, like I just, I was refreshing Twitter, endlessly, meanwhile, up on stage there’s Pachino and de Niro, whatever who cares.
And it was like, all these big moments got completely overshadowed.
Kudos to Chris rock. He took a slap to the face and stayed cool. You know, took a 20 seconds to kind of recapture the, what just happened here, but he hosted the rest of the segment. Chris rock is a pro. I salute you.
Chris rock said, wow, will Smith just smack the S anime
will Smith was yelling. Keep my wife’s name out of your effing mouth. Chris rock said, wow, dude. It was a GI Jean joke, Smith. Keep my wife’s name out of your effing mouth.
Then it was weird. You have hosts, but the hosts weren’t immediately on when Amy Schumer did get back on, she had a good line. She said, wow, I’ve been getting out of that. Spider-Man costume. Did I miss anything? Which is a pretty good line. Let’s talk about Jimmy Kimmel’s reaction a little bit. And I think Jimmy has the right take care.
Amy Schumer added there’s like a different vibe in here.
From deadlines sources till deadline, a Chris rock leader approached the Smith’s possibly to apologize while Denzel Washington and Tyler Perry spoke with will Smith. During the commercial break, Bradley Cooper was also seen in a conversation with will Smith
P Diddy had the next segment and he said, well, Chris, we’re going to solve that. Like a family at the gold party for now, we will move on with love, little awkward there, but what are you going to do?
So now the entire internet is buzzing about this. Even my son at college gets wind of this. He’s texting me, is this real? I’m like, yeah, it’s real. And I told him, there’s a good chance will Smith’s going to win best actor here. You might want to put it on.
So he started watching and sure enough, because TV is awesome. Chris rock wins best actor. Now here’s my question. Are you allowed to just get up and smack somebody
or do you have to be will Smith? Like if the guy from best documentary, doesn’t like a Chris rock joke and he get up and clock him and go back to his seat and then later win an award. What is the rule there? I thought it was really weird that will Smith wasn’t asked to leave. He slapped the guy in the face on national television and he still gets to sit there.
. I’ve heard from some people who said that Chris rock should have known better than to go after Will’s wife.
We can debate that another time. There are clearly ways you can handle that such as I don’t know, heckling. DM-ing the guy later and being like, that’s not cool, dude. I’m not sure that walking up on stage and slapping a guy in the middle of the Oscars is the best move. And again, I think will Smith should have been removed.
You can’t attack a comedian on stage. Like you just can’t do that.
So Wilson wins best actor because TV is awesome. He says, I want to apologize to the academy. I want to apologize to all my fellow nominees. I hope the academy invites me back. He did not apologize on stage to Chris rock, who he slapped in the face.
Will Smith alluded to what happened with reference to Richard Williams, the father of tennis sensations, Venus and Serena, who will Smith portrayed. And king Richard Smith said Richard Williams was a fierce defender of his family in this time of my life. In this moment, , I am overwhelmed by what God is calling on me to do and be in this world, making this film.
I know to do what we do. You’ve got to be able to take abuse. You’ve gotta be able to have people talk crazy about you in this business. You’ve gotta be able to have people disrespecting you. And he got a smile and pretend like that’s okay. Then Zell says to me, a few minutes ago, he said to me at your highest moment, be careful.
That’s when the devil comes for you, but I want to be a vessel for love.
Might take there. I feel like will Smith could have gotten up and said, um, wow, Hey, uh, I want to apologize to Chris rock. Uh, but you know, when somebody comes up, my wife, I’m going to protect you. Like something like that.
That it was even still allowed in. The building is crazy. It’s crazy to me. What are the rules? Are there apparently no rules.
Chris rock apparently will not be pressing charges against Wilson.
That according to the Los Angeles police department.
LAPD investigative entities are aware of an incident between two individuals during the academy awards program, the incident involved one individual slapping another. The individual involved has declined to file a police report. If the involved party desires a police report at a later date, LAPD will be available to complete an investigative report.
Chris rock did not comments.
Chris rock has up to six months to file a report. If will Smith is charged with assault, he could face up to six months behind bars, along with a fine of up to $100,000.
It is possible that will Smith may be asked to hand the award back in the academy has strict guidelines and its code of conduct. One highly placed. Hollywood source told the New York post it’s basically assault. Everybody was so shocked in the room. It was so uncomfortable, I think will, would not want to give his Oscar back, but who knows what will happen now?
After the wards, the Hollywood Porter says Oscar winner will Smith took a victory lap at the vanity fair Oscar party. Okay. Vanity fair. Oscar party looking at you
will. Smith was reportedly dancing to his own hits as wife at Jada Pinkett Smith cheered them on and they told the Hollywood reporter it’s been a beautiful night. The Holly reporter says Smith seemed unbothered by the drama that happened on the Oscar stage early in the evening.
If you want a good listen, take a listen to Jimmy Kimmel. As the guest at the top of bill Simmons podcast, that was published late Sunday, early Monday, Kim alt responded to the Conan O’Brien suites, which I’ll remind you was just all the willsmith slap anybody. Have a late night show. I can just borrow for tomorrow.
Kimmel said, anytime you want to take it for a spin it’s yours
Kimball then went on Simmons. Bill Simmons said it was the craziest celebrity altercation. Kimmel. Yes. Especially when you consider the characters involved, the nicest guy in Hollywood, if Tom Hanks got up and smack somebody across the face, it’s the only thing comparable, right?
Kim will said, he, you initially thought it was staged. I thought something was planned.
By the way, you got a hand it’s Chris rock. He barely.
He said, Chris rock handled himself as well as he possibly could have you feel bad for a lot of people, the hosts had some really great moments. And now this is what people are gonna be talking about. I feel bad for Questlove who won the best documentary award and Chris rock certainly didn’t deserve.
But in a way I feel bad for will Smith too. I think he let his emotions get the better of him and this should have been one of the great nights of his life. And now it’s not. And was there anyone in the world who didn’t like will Smith and now he doesn’t have a single comedian friend that’s for sure.
Comedians are really mad. They all feel like they’re next.
Again, there’s a normal episode in the feed from earlier today, where I talked about the Amy Schumer, part of all this, uh, to Maura morning’s 3 0 5 release will be a normal episode, but if more of this story breaks, I’ll do it separately as an Oscar’s bonus episode.
