Despite doing a week of Late Night shows in Washington DC, Seth Meyers hosted two of the biggest stars currently appearing on a New York City Broadway stage, Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland, the stars of “Oh, Hello”. According to the Late Night host, the two seventy-plus-somethings were filling in at the last minute for Nick Kroll and John Mulaney who didn’t show up in “Wershington”. Very clever, Seth.
It wasn’t Gil and George’s first trip to the nation’s capital. They were in town when Seth Meyers hosted the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. They were there for a different correspondents dinner, one involving the Waffle House. It’s hard to believe how much detail a Waffle House story can have, but George St. Geegland certainly had plenty. The guys did love Seth for attacking “the Trump” during his WHCD hosting gig in 2011, however they are blaming him now for Donald Trump being “a McDonald’s burp away from destroying the world”. They compared Seth Meyers to the man “who didn’t buy Hitler’s paintings”.
Watch the clip below to see Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland explain the irony of Donald Trump’s sons hunting elephants, their opinions on Rudy Giuliani and NYC’s Shake Shack and their prediction on the fate of Chris Christie. Also, the Broadway stars educate the Late Night audience on the traditions of stage acting on the Great White Way. Learn the secrets behind theater’s one-sided telephone call.
