Last week, Biden revealed sweeping vaccination mandates for government workers and contractors, and announced all businesses with more than 100 employees must require vaccinations or weekly testing for their workers; failure to comply will result in fines of $14,000 per violation. “My message to unvaccinated Americans is this: what more is there to wait for?” Biden said. “What more do you need to see? We’ve been patient, but our patience is wearing thin, and your refusal has cost all of us.”

“Say what you want about Biden, he’s not messing around,” said Noah. “And if you ask me, it’s actually smart of Biden to do this mandate through people’s employers. It’s not the government coming for you, it’s your employer. Because Americans are already used to their employer having a ton of power over their lives.

Republicans have denounced the plan, and 19 GOP governors have vowed to defy the measure in their states; Governor Henry McMaster of South Carolina promised to “fight them to the gates of hell”.

“Normally, that statement is hyperbole, but with Covid you might actually get the chance,” Noah quipped.

The outrage shouldn’t come as a surprise, said Noah as “any mandate, no matter how much it seems like common sense to some people, is gonna make other people really mad. And it’s not just the vaccine,” he added, pointing to fury over seatbelt requirements in the 1980s.

“Mandates by their nature build resistance,” he concluded. “And if Biden’s gonna be doing that, I hope he is ready for what’s going to happen, because mandates turn ‘I don’t knows’ into ‘fuck you’s.”

Biden’s new Covid vaccine mandates have “enraged the lunatic fringe of anti-vaxxers otherwise known as Republican governors”, said Stephen Colbert on Monday evening. Some have even threatened to sue, prompting Biden to respond on Friday: “have at it.”

Colbert broke out his Biden impression: “I went to Scranton School Bus-top Tussling, once gave a man a little elbow music for looking cross-eyed at my Buster Browns. You got a problem with that mandate you can stop by and meet my pals Empathy and Public Service.”

In other news, it remains to be seen whether California will recall its Democratic governor, Gavin Newsom, pending a referendum on the complex election with 46 opposing candidates. Newsom’s opposition includes businessman John Cox, who has been holding campaign events with a live bear. “All that tells me is that John Cox is so bland even a bear won’t eat him,” said Colbert.

Another candidate is Patrick Kilpatrick, an actor who has appeared in such films as Under Siege 2, Free Willy 3, Angel 4 and the TV show Babylon 5. “And if you add all those numbers up, it’s more than the votes Patrick Kilpatrick will get,” said Colbert.

According to polls, 60% of California voters oppose the recall – “the other 40% said ‘I am running for governor,’” Colbert joked.

And on Late Night, Seth Meyers also tore into GOP opposition to Biden’s new Covid safety plan, from the Florida governor, Ron DeSantis, to Governor Henry McMaster of South Carolina, who vowed to fight the administration’s vaccination mandates “to the gates of hell”.

“Take it easy, Henry, you’re not even going to fight somebody to the gates of your community,” Meyers retorted. “And I’m sorry, you’ll ‘fight them to the gates of hell?’ It’s a requirement to get vaccinated against a deadly respiratory virus and you sound like you’re writing a screenplay for a direct-to-VHS Steven Seagal movie called Strike Force One.

“But that’s what these people do!” Meyers continued on Republican blowback. “It’s all performance and manufactured outrage designed to gin up their base. They don’t seem to care about the toll of the virus itself and the immense loss and grief it’s wrought. They just care about mimicking Trump to pander to their voters.

“These guys are acting like mandates are tyranny when in reality, mandates exist everywhere, and we have to do all kinds of much more annoying things every day to live a in functional society with other people,” he added. “I mean, you think anyone likes waiting in line at the DMV in order to commute to work? No one likes that, but we do it.

“I can’t believe I still have to say this after 18 months, but you can spread Covid to other people,” he said. “It’s not just about yourself.”

The Daily Show no longer socially distanced as Trevor Noah returns for season 27 | Channel

News24 31 December, 1969 - 06:00pm

The Daily Show is no longer socially distanced as Trevor Noah returns to a new studio tonight for season 27 of the late-night show on Comedy Central (DStv 122) at 23:11.

After its American summer break, The Daily Show is back for a new season with South Africa's Trevor Noah as the host. New episodes will air in SA one day after it airs in the US.

After having retitled The Daily Show as "The Daily Socially Distancing Show" and recording episodes from his New York City apartment for a year and a half due to the pandemic, Trevor is now returning to a new studio inside ViacomCBS headquarters at 1515 Broadway.

"As the show moves from Trevor's apartment to the heart of New York City, it drops the Social Distancing moniker while holding onto the intimacy and creative elements that drove the success of the Emmy-nominated hit during the pandemic," Comedy Central says in a press release.

"The new studio will include state-of-the-art production capabilities, allowing the show to create and deliver a greater range of content across all platforms."

Daily Show correspondents Ronny Chieng, Michael Kosta, Desi Lydic, Dulcé Sloan and Roy Wood Jr. also return, along with contributors Lewis Black and Jordan Klepper.

The four guests of the first week of season 27 of The Daily Show will be Dr Anthony Fauci (America's National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director), actor and producer Gabrielle Union, NBA star and author Carmelo Anthony, and actor and director LeVar Burton.

Channel24's TV and Film Editor, Leandra Engelbrecht, curates a list of films and series for you to watch every week.

‘The Daily Show With Trevor Noah’ Moves Into New Studio Following Summer Hiatus

Yahoo Entertainment 15 September, 2021 - 08:00am

Trevor Noah is officially leaving his apartment to move The Daily Show into a new studio.

The late-night host and his team will move into the ViacomCBS headquarters at 1515 Broadway in New York City to film the nightly talkshow starting tonight, Monday September 13.

Noah dropped hints last week that he was moving out of his place during an appearance on The Tonight Show, saying that his neighbors will be happy with the new arrangement.

It comes after a year and a half of filming the show from the corner of Noah’s apartment. No word yet whether the comedian will ditch his colorful hoodies and be back in a suit.

Before the pandemic, The Daily Show filmed the show at their own studio at 733 11th Avenue.

Noah and his team are the last of the nightly talkshows to move back to the studio following the pandemic, with the likes of The Tonight Show, The Late Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Late Late Show and Late Night all returning over the last few months.

He will be joined in the studio by correspondents Ronny Chieng, Michael Kosta, Desi Lydic, Dulcé Sloan and Roy Wood Jr. along with contributors Lewis Black and Jordan Klepper.

Comedy Central said that while the show, which has a new logo (left), will drop the Social Distancing moniker but will attempt to hold onto the “intimacy” and “creative elements” of the show over the last 18 months.

The ViacomCBS network added that the studio will include “state-of-the-art production capabilities” that will allow the show to “create and deliver a greater range of content across all platforms”.

Joining Noah in his first week back after a two month summer break, will be guests including Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, on Monday, followed by Gabrielle Union, Carmelo Anthony and LeVar Burton.

“Just like the rest of the world we’re excited to leave our homes and get back to working in the same space as other human beings,” said Trevor Noah. “We’re not 100% back to normal yet but we’re gonna make the best of it and enjoy making the show from the heart of Times Square.”

They could have done this safely back in the studio a long while back. It’s time to reboot the whole show again with a new host. I know it’s all subjective, but I just don’t dig this guy anymore.

Ooh the irony. A guy who nobody’s knows except his family and friends is writing to some bullshit to famous and phenomenal host what to do ..bro u are Sad sad dude.i hope u find happiness in your life. U feel like desperate dude

This doesn’t say anything about an audience.

Yeah, from the tease video they posted that had a peek into the new studio, it sounds like the “intimate” feel is going to be something more like Colbert’s closet studio before they went back to having an audience but with room for in-person guests , for now. Probably waiting for numbers to get more reasonable before bothering with the full studio experience.

Yeah I think so but what numbers u are talking about bro

How to Watch The Daily Show: Where to Stream New & Old Episodes Right Now

Collider.com 15 September, 2021 - 08:00am

If you're wondering when to expect new episodes, who the new guests are this week, and where you can stream The Daily Show right now, we've got you covered with a handy guide. Here's everything you ned to know about how to watch The Daily Show, from the new episode of the day to older episodes from years past,

New episodes air on Comedy Central Monday through Thursday, at 11pm ET/PT.

Following the early pandemic production switch, which saw Trevor Noah filming in his own apartment as "The Daily Social Distaning Show", The Daily Show makes a return to filming in-studio when it returns on September 13 - but not the same studio. The Daily Show formerly filmed in its own studios, but with the return to Season 26, production will move to ViacomCBS headquarters. You can watch the trailer for "The New Era" below.

Yes! Episodes are available the next morning to stream on Paramount+ and at Comedy Central’s website.

Certain cable and streaming subscribers can access Seasons 21-26 on the Comedy Central website, but you will need to log in to your subscription before you can access them. Paramount+ also has previous episodes of Seasons 21-26 available to stream, as well as the 2019 run of The Daily Show with Trevor Noah: Global Edition.

Unfortunately, if you want to watch The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, you won't find full episodes available to stream or purchase online anywhere in the U.S. However, the Comedy Central website has a substantial amount of clips available from Season 3 to Season 20, which means you can piece together most of the episodes dating back to 1999, but you'll have to watch them in a series of short clips.

Additionally, fans of Stewart's pointed political commentary can look forward to The Problem with Jon Stewart, his new Apple TV+ series, which debuts on Thursday, September 30. The new series is described as "a multiple-season, single-issue series, taking a deep-dive on the most important topics that are currently part of the national conversation. In this new Apple Original series, Stewart will be in discussion with the people who are impacted by the issue — as well as those who have a hand in creating the impact. Together, they will discuss tangible steps that can lead to a solutionary path forward." The weekly series also has a companion podcast, launching on the same day.

Finally, if you're a fan of the too often ignored The Daily Show with Craig Kilborn, there are unfortunately no options to stream or purchase the first two seasons at the moment, nor are there any clips available on the Comedy Central website. But we'll be sure to update this space if that changes!

Many of the correspondents have gone on to illustrious careers after their time on The Daily Show. Stephen Colbert, John Oliver, Samantha Bee, and Larry Wilmore all have gone on to host their own topical talk shows. Steve Carell (The Office), Ed Helms (The Hangover trilogy), Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse), Michael Che (Saturday Night Live), Aasif Mandvi (Evil), Josh Gad (Frozen), Kristen Schaal (Bob’s Burgers) and Rachael Harris (Lucifer) are just some of the correspondents that went on create a name for themselves in the acting sphere.

Stewart left The Daily Show in 2015, and Trevor Noah took over the anchor job. His style, while still covering the day’s news, took on a younger tone, aiming the show toward the younger demographic that Noah brought in. In 2020, Noah started doing the show out of his New York City apartment due to the COVID-19 pandemic. During that time, the show changed its name to The Daily Social Distancing Show With Trevor Noah.

On September 13, 2021, The Daily Show With Trevor Noah returns with its original title as the show returns to the studio. The new studio space promises to have “state-of-the-art production capabilities, allowing the show to create and deliver a greater range of content across all platforms.”

“Just like the rest of the world we’re excited to leave our homes and get back to working in the same space as other human beings,” said Trevor Noah. “We’re not 100% back to normal yet but we’re gonna make the best of it and enjoy making the show from the heart of Times Square.”

Grimes Brought A Sword To The Met Gala And It's Made From Something Deeply American

The Daily Show with Trevor Noah 14 September, 2021 - 10:32am

Grimes arrived at the Met Gala on Monday in a futuristic get-up accessorized with a sword ... made out of an AR-15.

The singer wore a “Dune” inspired ensemble designed by Iris van Herpen, including a custom Bene Gesserit-style gown that van Herpen spent “over 900 hours perfecting,” according to Vogue, as well as a mask by Chris Habana and a literal sword.

Lest you think the sword isn’t on par with the theme, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” it’s arguably the most American accessory to have graced this year’s carpet.

grimes bringing a sword to the met is such a grimes thing to do #MetGala pic.twitter.com/XgEXgTQxTl

Although it’s “based on a western European sword from the end of the Middle Ages around 1400,” the sword was cast from a Colt AR-15A3 and will remain part of the Met’s permanent collection, Grimes told Vogue.

The accessory was created by the Brooklyn, New York-based company MSCHF, which melts down firearms and turns them into swords.

“It’s from these people who are getting people’s [guns] who don’t want to have their automatic rifles anymore, and are melting them down and making them perfect replicas of medieval swords, which I think is just so cool — I think it’s a beautiful thing,” Grimes told the magazine.

Considering America’s horrific history with gun violence, many people on Twitter agreed that the accessory was on theme after all:

i hate how much i like Grimes’ look,, the fact that the sword is made out of an ar-15 is so aggressively on theme https://t.co/WQCogb6RzO

Grimes’s sword being made out of a melted down AR-15 is so cool and makes her fit one of the best tonight imo

Look, I hate Grimes but they brought a sword made out of an AR-15 to the met Gala and I think that is very on-theme pic.twitter.com/5lKMunl9EM
