Last Night On @midnight: Ali Wong, Jimmy Pardo, Ian Edwards (plus LeVar Burton!)
By Perry Michael Simon on June 13, 2014
Ali Wong, Jimmy Pardo, and Ian Edwards were last night’s panel on @midnight with Chris Hardwick on Comedy Central, and they were hit with a barrage of comedy challenges, including World Cup weirdness, Urban Dictionary definitions, Father’s Day bands, Craigslist descriptions, and, as always, “more.” It’s always “more.” “More” is tough. And LeVar Burton dropped by! LeVar Burton! Dropped by! Because! How many other shows can say THAT?
And here’s how it went, via clips:
#HashtagWars – #FathersDayBands
Rapid Refresh – Tweaked-Out Freaks & LeVar Burton
Craigslist Killer Deals – Yours In Christ
Event or Invented – Don’t F**k Other People
Doggone Dad Jokes – Ass, Grass or Snausages

Next week’s tentative schedule includes a whole lotta funny: Deon Cole, Jesse Joyce, and Brendon Walsh on Monday, the Sklar Brothers and Erin Foley on Tuesday, David Wain, Michael Showalter, and Michaela Watkins on Wednesday, and Chris D’Elia, Will Sasso, and Bryan Callen on Thursday. Watch the whole lot of ‘em each night at 12/11c on Comedy Central, right after The Colbert Report. Follow the show’s Tumblr and, of course, make sure you’re following the Twitter account.
