Comedians React to Kevin Spacey’s Christmas Eve Surprise

Kevin Spacey gave Twitter a gift today just hours after it was announced that he will be indicted for felony sexual assault. The Boston Globe had just dropped the news that Spacey will be arraigned on a charge of indecent assault and battery in Nantucket District Court just after the New Year. Just hours later, Spacey tweeted a short film titled “Let Me Be Frank” in which the actor performs a creepy monologue in character as Frank Underwood- his House of Cards character from the Netflix series. Netflix fired Spacey from the series after allegations started coming to light.

“Oh sure, they may have tried to separate us, but what we have is too strong, it’s too powerful and after all, we shared everything, you and I. I told you my deepest, darkest secrets. I showed you exactly what people are capable of. I shocked you with my honesty, but mostly I challenged you and made you think. And you trusted me even though you knew you shouldn’t. So we’re not done, no matter what anyone says. And besides, I know what you want: You want me back,” he says in the video. It’s creepy, unsettling and confusing. And it already has 3 million views.

All day after the video appeared without explanation, comedians reacted to the video, also on Twitter. We collected our 35 favorites.
