This is…really something (via our Twitchy cousins):

In case you’re curious, Gutfeld ate it up:

I was waiting for a post on this. I’ve watched this twice now, and I still can’t get over how absurd and hilarious it is. I think the strawberry is where I completely lost it.

“BIG F***ING MISTAKE, BOB!”

Guy Benson on January 16, 2014 at 11:46 AM

Damn, I was waiting for the lambast of Kimberly. She makes The Five unwatchable.

NOMOBO on January 16, 2014 at 11:46 AM

Well! That was certainly… something.

Dash on January 16, 2014 at 11:51 AM

Filmed in Colorado?

Shy Guy on January 16, 2014 at 11:59 AM

“The Daily Show” is MSNBC freaky lite by the default of, “Hey, you can’t hold us accountable for our propoganda! We’re satire!”
Immature and dangerously obsessive, the shark is jumped each week now.

Unless you are a straight male.

MechanicalBill on January 16, 2014 at 12:38 PM

I tried to watch this…only got through about 1/2. I’m sorry, but I don’t get it.

It is my age (47)? :)

Glad Greg enjoyed it, though…or is just being facetious in some fashion?

TempestGuy on January 16, 2014 at 12:39 PM

The lefties have no idea what makes a show like the Five a success. And in a clumsy and unfunny attempt to assure themselves that really THEY are the cutting edge of wit and wisdom on America’s airwaves, this unfunny, strange and clumsy one woman act is staged. The strange obsession with a Perino and Gutfeld alleged affair is promulgated as a smoking gun of sorts. The reason this is chosen as the main theme is because liberals project their own weaknesses on the right. A backstage affair is what they would do. They just know that that must be going on on the Five, and dammit, if they can’t find proof then they’ll stage it anyway. Its ironic that liberals who supposedly are so open and accepting of all things sexual, are so fixated on sexual and potty humor. Its like they never got out of second grade.

As for the cream of liberal topical humor – Jon Stewart, Letterman, Maher et al. – they live in a laughtrack echo chamber where everything they say and do is considered uproariously hilarious. Looking in from the outside, its just plain weird, unfunny and a little sad to watch.

This is much more of a takedown of hysterical “One Woman Shows” than of The 5. Get this woman a National Endowment for the Arts grant!

BJ* on January 16, 2014 at 12:55 PM

Wait. Jon Stewart has a problem with “fifty-year old frat boys”?

I thought it was cutesy, but not as funny as Greg.

I don’t get the religious following of the DailyShow. Maybe I’m just not hip enough.

How old is Anthony Weiner?

MechanicalBill on January 16, 2014 at 12:38 PM

Bill, believe me I am as straight as they come. Been married long enough to have four grandchildren.

Kimberly is one of the least attractive, swarthy, self aggrandizing women on TV. The fact that she wears short, skin tight clothing is not a turn on for me. But if you like hookers, well….

NOMOBO on January 16, 2014 at 1:49 PM

This is how the left wins. We give them attention and seem to be grateful for any crumbs they throw out at us. The only response to Jon Stewart should be “who?”

Why are we giving these leftists our attention, time and clicks.

And then some of us wonder how they got so much power and can control the narrative.

Mind boggling.

Could be were both in the same boat…I used to feel “hip” in my younger days when I was a religious follower of Letterman back in the 80′s, but he lost me in the 90s and now I am amazed that I ever found him to be funny.

Of course, his major turn to the Left during the 2000′s (to the point of bizarre obsessiveness) didn’t help…

Again, is this the inevitable loss of “hipness” that comes with the advancing years?

On the other hand, being “hip” matters to me about as much as who won any given American Idol competition…in other words, not in the least…

NOMOBO on January 16, 2014 at 1:49 PM

I’ve never watch the five. My father likes it and watches it all the time. I’ve seen some of it while visiting him and I have to agree that Kimberly is not all that attractive. Maybe she could be but her personality stands in the way I think. She is also a bit to glitzy for my tastes.

Dr. Frank Enstine on January 16, 2014 at 2:07 PM

I stopped watching when the chick smashed a strawberry on her face. She’s like Margaret Cho and doesn’t have a single comedic bone in her body.

John the Libertarian on January 16, 2014 at 2:29 PM

You guys are nuts. Kimberly is smoking hot.

John the Libertarian on January 16, 2014 at 2:30 PM

I’m in the “Kimberley Guilfoyle is jaw-droppingly hot” camp.

She’s traffic-stopping hot.

Kensington on January 16, 2014 at 2:33 PM

Andrea > Kimberly in the looks department. I’d date them both though. And Perino too, they’re all hot.

Dash on January 16, 2014 at 2:40 PM

Damn, I was waiting for the lambast of Kimberly. She makes The Five unwatchable.

NOMOBO on January 16, 2014 at 11:46 AM

I actually agree with you. She reminds of the type of girl that looks extremely attractive when you first see her, but then she doesn’t seem as attractive when you spend a few hours with her. I find her extremely annoying now. Although I think Kimberly is physically more attractive, I would much prefer Andrea getting more time. The rest of the cast (Eric, Dana, Greg, and Bob) is just fine.

GOPRanknFile on January 16, 2014 at 2:47 PM

To be fair, Kimberly is cuter than Bill Shultz used to be with Greg on “Red Eye”.

jon1979 on January 16, 2014 at 2:55 PM

Well…. the vid is down already.

Since the Daily Show folks often seem to want me to go over to their site and watch the videos there… why don’t you folks give me a hand up (NEXT time!) and offer a little hint of the location of the video – perhaps the date and topic of the show – so I can find it myself?

This huntin’ & peckin’ is gettin’ old. Thanks!

momodoom on January 16, 2014 at 3:22 PM

Aw, nevermind. It won’t play for me on the Daily Show site, either… arrgghh.

Linux?

momodoom on January 16, 2014 at 3:27 PM

BJ* on January 16, 2014 at 12:55 PM

I totally agree. The Daily Show piece has us laugh more at the style of presentation and the woman’s obsession than at the people in The Five.

Nessuno on January 16, 2014 at 3:42 PM

This is funny?

Shump on January 16, 2014 at 3:42 PM

Very funny, but I wonder if the bit would have worked as well if Ms. Bee had brought in the facts that:

1) Dana is also married

2) While she like Greg a lot, she loves her dog, Jasper.

Reno_Dave on January 16, 2014 at 3:44 PM

Andrea Tarantula is pretty swell, too. ;)

Kensington on January 16, 2014 at 3:56 PM

Shump on January 16, 2014 at 3:42 PM

no

TeeRand on January 16, 2014 at 6:13 PM

Out after 3 minutes. Why is this even posted here?

RedNewEnglander on January 16, 2014 at 6:27 PM

Samuel Bee needs more psychotic traits to shore up his funny bone, but dressing like a fugly chick is a good start, so there’s hope. That part was pretty decent.

Christien on January 16, 2014 at 6:49 PM

leapsandbounds on January 16, 2014 at 12:50 PM

I noticed this at a recent avant grade show I attended at a totally hipster place in NYC. (don’t ask me why!) The audience was populated with all manner of the hippest hipsters and the show was as lame as one with a brain might expect. The whole place tittered like a bunch of junior high kids when one of the actors was put in a situation where they had to say “breast.” At first I thought there was supposed to be some joke, but no. The hippest group in NYC (or so they thought) was more uptight and embarrassed than a local suburban ladies club when discussing “female issues.”

Maybe more in this sense:

Nessuno on January 16, 2014 at 3:42 PM

If you’re making fun of one-man performance art, then the sheer hambone quality this woman goes through is pretty funny.

It doesn’t really have anything significant to say about the Five itself, except for the really lame implication that Bob Beckel is a conservative, because some of the things he says could be construed as racist, and liberals always assume that all racists are conservatives, and all conservatives are racists.

There Goes the Neighborhood on January 16, 2014 at 7:34 PM

I don’t get the religious following of the DailyShow. Maybe I’m just not hip enough.

Nah, he used to be funny 10 years ago, hell he actually used to tell jokes. Now the show is pretty much show a clip, make a face, audience laughs like a bunch of trained seals. Pretty much it’s all inertia at this point.(People watch it for the same reason they watch SNL, it’s just something to do)

Dave_d on January 16, 2014 at 8:17 PM

By the end when she rips her heart out I was laughing so hard I was crying. Best one woman show send up I have ever seen.

talkingpoints on January 16, 2014 at 8:39 PM

Um…I have a pretty good sense of humor but….im not getting this.

lostinjrz on January 16, 2014 at 8:59 PM

For all the Sound and Fury, it still all boils down to this one, indisputable fact: Samantha Bee is not funny.

MaxMBJ on January 16, 2014 at 10:51 PM

WTF was that? Old Yeller was funnier than that.

That chick needs medication, a trip to an alternative universe, and one of those Hannibal Lecter muzzles.

Despite this moron’s best efforts, Dana Perino will always be smoking hot and smart, and Bob Bechtel will always be a handsome, brilliant, young, skinny Ed Schultz.

Tough times for John Stewart if that’s all he’s got.

NoPain on January 16, 2014 at 11:59 PM

I think it’s just the left’s tactic of “talk about anything but the steaming pile of disaster currently in charge in DC”.

Wine_N_Dine on January 17, 2014 at 9:03 AM

“This video only plays in the United States.”

:(

S. Weasel on January 17, 2014 at 9:31 AM

I despise the writers on that show. The opening trumpet destroys my last good nerve. I cannot get off the channel fast enough. So “no” to the video, flat “no.” However your comments are very much more interesting, and you make it as if I’ve seen it! You’re the best.

[I love Dana Perino but sometimes her voice is like nails across chalkboard, and Bob can drop dead in front of me and I'd call large animal removal. Because of Bekel the show simply cannot be watched his antipathy and mine are too mutually repulsive. The last good nerve again, needs protection.]

bour3 on January 17, 2014 at 4:14 PM

So Walter Mondale’s campaign manager is a right winger now, Leibowitz?

Chickyraptor on January 18, 2014 at 7:35 PM

At first I wondered why she was wearing an apron. Then, I wondered how old she is (44). Then I wondered if they went looking for and Amy Poehler or Tina Fey wannabe.

I haven’t watched The Five since I quit watching news, but it hasn’t changed much.

flataffect on January 19, 2014 at 4:26 PM

talkingpoints on January 16, 2014 at 8:39 PM

Exactly. Better as a send-up of performance art than of “The Five.” I give it a few appreciative chuckles, but MST3K did it better in less time: “Gypsy Rose… Me!”
