  • Stephen talks to Dave Marash about working for Al Jazeera.

    The show opens with a teaser of content from the show, which involves everything from the State of the Union to Kanye West dressing up as Jesus.

    Stephen starts off the show by asking the director for some music in his earpiece. He then says that he's listening to the President's State of the Union Address in his earpiece. As he's about to begin, Stephen stands up and applauds for the President, but it's a false alarm. Back in his seat, Stephen begins to discuss the Oscar nominations, but is interrupted by the President, so he gets up and applauds. Back in his seat, Stephen says the Oscars tragically overlooked the great accomplishments of Martin Lawrence.

    Stephen then transitions into actors who have portrayed Jesus, which brings us to tonight's edition of "The Word," which is "Jesi," or more than one Jesus. Stephen goes on to discuss how Kanye West was on the cover of Rolling Stone, dressed as Jesus, and there was also a recent Christian TV series, which got cancelled. Stephen ends the segment by offering tips on figuring out which is the good Jesus, and which is the bad Jesus.

    Back from commercial, Stephen is applauding the President's speech. He then introduces another segment called "All You Need To Know." First up, Sam Alito was confirmed to the Supreme Court, so buy condoms. Next up are bits on Gitmo, an Alaskan volcano, and eBay.

    Back from commercial, Stephen welcomes tonight's guest, Dave Marash, a journalist for Al Jazeera. They chat about what it's like to work for Al Jazeera, something Stephen finds odd, since Mr. Marash is Jewish.

    Back from commercial, Stephen ends the show with a segment called "The Crazies F*?king Thing I've Ever Heard." Stephen shows a clip of a snake and hamster living together, something Stephen doesn't think is natural. Stephen then mentions Russ Lieber will be in-studio tomorrow night.

    Tonight's episode was another good one. The idea that Stephen was listening to the President was funny, and thankfully, they didn't overdo the number of interruptions. I really can't say there were any standout segments, everything was fairly average.
