Last Night On @midnight: Paul F. Tompkins, Heather Campbell, Brett Gelman
By Perry Michael Simon on June 6, 2014
Last night’s @midnight with Chris Hardwick on Comedy Central was so good, the network has posted an extended version on its website. What made it special? Oh, maybe the presence of the customarily natty Paul F. Tompkins, Heather Campbell, and Brett Gelman. Maybe it was a topic list that included bad engagement photos, new frontiers in condom technology, Wii miis (Paul is especially offended by his), listicles BuzzFeed hasn’t posted (yet), and the standard-equipment “more.”
You be the judge by clicking here for the extended episode or taking it in bite-sized chunks with these clips:
#HashtagWars – #ElderlyNBA
Rapid Refresh – It’s Galactic Cap Time
Diss-Engaged – Our Love Is Strong Enough to Humiliate a Horse
Live Challenge – It’s Not You, It’s Mii
BuzzSpeed – The Shakespeare of Listicles

Next week’s tentative lineup is another great one: on Monday, Dave Hill joins returnees Steve Agee and Michelle Buteau; Tuesday has Ice Cube with Rob Riggle and Jimmy Tatro; on Wednesday, Tommy Johnagin, Maria Bamford, and Jackie Kashian play the game; and on Thursday, Jimmy Pardo, Ali Wong, and Ian Edwards do the panel thing. You’ll see it all 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.
