Rob Riggle Runs Crazy Over Brad and Dave on 'Happy Endings' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 24th 2011 4:00AM
'Happy Endings' - 'Full Court Dress'There are people we encounter in our lives who are great in those particular moments. But those are the only types of experiences we have with them, and it might be best to keep it that way, as Dave and Brad discovered the hard way on 'Happy Endings' (Tue., 9:30PM ET on ABC).

Short a guy for their pick-up game, they invited Brad's delivery guy Drew (Rob Riggle). He and Brad were totally cool in those brief encounters when Brad signed for a package. But when Drew got out on the court, he really freaked the guys out.

Stephen Colbert may have made big news recently when he took his show on the road for a second time and performed for the troops in Iraq, but don't forget the other guy bringing fake news to the Middle East! Daily Show has been airing correspondent Jason Jones's reports from Iran, which were taped over the past month or so. Check out how many pockets are on that vest. He clearly means journalistic business.

Election Night: Comedy Central - VIDEO

Jon and Stephen
It's fantastic to see Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert team up on something other than an award show (not that I'm complaining about super-adorable Stewart/Colbert/Carell hugs, which warm my otherwise bitterly cold heart). It will be interesting to see how the boys react to the live results, but I'm most interested in seeing how Stephen Colbert stays in character. Check back later for videos Click on the jump for the full episode!

10:05: Man, those intros were hardcore. And how long is that bird going to stay on Stephen's shoulder? I'm waiting for a startled poo. I'm still not used to seeing Jon and Stephen together. It's too much awesome.

10:12: Hi, Jason Jones! Nice to see -- Whoa, what just happened? Something flashed on the screen, but I didn't catch it. Suddenly compelled to join the military, though.

Another Daily Show correspondent moves on: Riggle gets sitcom deal

Rob RiggleA myriad of correspondents from The Daily Show have gone on to their own careers, such as Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell to name two. Jason Jones and Samantha Bee are slated to write and star in a sitcom for CBS. Now it looks like the show will be losing Rob Riggle to a prime-time spot, also on CBS. Riggle is one of the more interesting correspondents, given his background in the U.S. Marine Corps.

The Daily Show has become this generation's Saturday Night Live in the sense that many of the players move on to bigger and better TV and/or movie deals. The only reason Jon Stewart himself hasn't left is because of a lucrative contract and the fact that his name is on the marquee.

In fact, if CBS is so eager to grab people from The Daily Show, why not grab Stewart himself? Letterman won't be doing his show forever, you know. He's the natural heir to the position. In my opinion this would be a very smart move, which means it probably won't happen.

Jon StewartBefore we jump right into things, let's take a moment to think about just how amazing these past two weeks of Daily Show have been. The program has always been pretty solid, but both the Democratic National Convention and the Republican National Convention have provided beautiful fodder for both Jon and the correspondents, who seem to have finally hit their stride. This particular group of correspondents works best when they're all teamed up, and it really showed during convention coverage. From Jason Jones and Samantha Bee sucking face in front of hapless interviewees to Rob Riggle and Wyatt Cenac grillin' up some arugula in an elitist parking lot. TDS is taking another break next week and, boy, do they deserve it.

TDS"Guess Who's Coming to Denver?": The Daily Show is back! They'll be in Denver for the whole Democratic National Convention, workin' their shiny new set. It's pretty much just Jon's "j" desk and a whole lot of big screens hanging in the back. The gang was in full form, and I believe this was the most I've laughed at the show in a while. Perhaps it only feels that way because the show has been gone for a week and a Monday. Thank goodness they returned, because I was starting to get the shakes.

Jon Stewart and Rob Riggle"All the Gori Details": Russia and Georgia's conflict rages on, even though everyone else is playing pool games at the Olympics. President Bush and company seem to think that this sort of conflict is, like, so old. The show managed to perfectly nail Condoleezza Rice's disapproval of overthrowing government. This was kind of depressing, actually. I would have liked to see more cartoon clips of Michael Phelps swimming against Black Manta.

Jon StewartThis particular episode of The Daily Show was super extra Chinese, but you guys get an extra layer of Chinese via this review written by me. That makes you special. The only way to push it even further would be for me to write this completely in Chinese. Consider yourselves lucky that I'm too embarrassed to write like that, as my Chinese vocabulary and syntax reads like that of a five year-old's.

Rob Riggle"Anti-Olympic Update": Instead of using sports as a metaphor for war, Russia has been juggling the Olympics and attacks on neighbor Georgia. I can never get enough of The Daily Show's graphics department. Just check out that hardcore anti-Olympic intro with the rings of doom. Jon Stewart got a lot of applause for that "Oh, war... It's just God's way of teaching Americans geography." Does it count as stealing if the joke is super, super old and reasonably well-known already?

Rob Riggle"Super News Blaster Breaking News Update": Reminding grumpy Republicans everywhere that the Daily Show considers the unfaithful on both sides of the aisle fair game, the show took on the latest sex scandal to rock the Hill. As it turns out, the allegations about Senator John Edwards having an affair with his former videographer were true. True! Over the weekend, I was briefly intrigued, but then found myself staring intently at her interesting fashion choices. I recall seeing her in a black top with a sequined peace sign at one point. Classy. As for me, superficial? Boy, am I!

Jon and JohnLast month, the show talked about Iraq's Prime Minister literally giving money away on the streets. As it turns out, they can afford to do this because the country has a multi-billion dollar budget surplus. Senior Financial Expert John Oliver stopped by to talk about what the Iraqis could do with their money, apart from rolling around in it, Scrooge McDuck style. I believe he made this joke a million times better with that jaunty little bounce. John and Jon proceeded to try and push their products, Alpacas and commemorative First Lady plates, respectively. These guys really need to fight more often.

Daily Show"Dick Move of the Week": John McCain has been making more news with one of his new attack ads against Barack Obama, in which he calls Obama out for being an attention-seeking celebrity, just like Britney Spears and Paris Hilton. That's not the bad part though. That honor goes to the fact that Paris' parents support McCain and have sent thousands of dollars for his campaign. Smooth move, my man. Smooth move.

Oliver and Riggle"Easy, Pal... for the US Army": Sometimes I forget that there are still people that are scared of homosexuals, especially in the military. Thanks, Daily Show, for reminding of the existence of Elaine "Passive-Agressive Behavior" Donnelly and company. Congress recently had a hearing about gays in the military and the ever-popular "don't ask, don't tell" policy. This was almost as hilarious as whenever I see groups of straight guy-friends go to the movies together and sit with empty seats between each other so they won't be tempted to hold hands or something. Yeah, super-gay hand-holding is definitely worse than alcoholics and convicted felons. Icky.

Wyatt Cenac"Obama Quest: The Legend Begins": I guess the political comedy world has decided that the go-to digs on Barack Obama will be about the pressures of his golden boy image. Unfortunately, I can't say my middle school days were spent quite the same way, dealing with people making fun of how awesome I am. There are definitely worse ways to be mocked, is what I'm saying. Anyway, Mr. Obama has made his way to the Middle East for the first time, providing the Daily Show graphics department with the opportunity to make the most freakin' epic clip to accompany the report. Awesome. This trip also gave the media a chance to eagerly await a major cross-cultural faux pas. As it turns out, Obama has fangirls and fanboys all over the world.
