    one time I was sitting on the toilet and I look over and there a four foot snake n the floor outta nowhere. in the bathroom. I finish up and get on the internet to find out what to do - if it's dangerous, etc., and by the time I get back, I got a big box and a broom with me, the thing's gone and I never see it again. so everything's gonna be fine.

    I saw this video in my recommended and I saw John Mulaney in the thumbnail. I hadn't watched it yet. All that I saw in the title was "Donald trump is a 'horse..." and I thought to myself "Sounds like a totally legit accusation.

    John Mulaney's full "Horse in a Hospital" bit is one of the greatest pieces of comedy ever written. I stand by that and I will die on this hill. And even if I'm wrong (which I'm not) then I at least get to die on a hill and no longer have to live in a world where Trump is president. So it's basically a win/win situation.

    PS I think I'm funnier than I actually am.

    This was the best interview that I’ve seen in awhile. John is an awesome person. And he got star struck seeing Steven. Steven was pretty cool too in the interview with him. I never thought japan were polite I mean I’ve seen evidence but wow. I don’t rly see it here any as often. Just the other day I opened the door at a gas station for a woman for her to go in and she had said to me “I’m a woman I can do it myself!” That hurt me bc I was just being polite. I too sometimes feel like I just don’t want to offend anyone. It doesn’t feel nice.

    "I have fired the horse catcher"
    John Mullaney just made me see a talking horse with a terrible blonde comb-over.
    The analogy of a horse lose in a hospital is so perfect it could just go on forever.
    News: the horse is now in the ICU.
    Viewers: what's it doing in there!? It could really cause some serious damage. Someone should coax the horse onto a safer floor where it can't bother anyone.

    Not sure why I even clicked this. Now that I did I'm having second thoughts. I'll tell you why I don't like Jon Mulaney. He seems too plastic. I get a kind of phony or fake vibe from him.
    And as for Stevie boy, I think it's pretty obvious why he's annoying.

    It worries me that there are so many people cheering and egging on this rampant horse in the hospital. They seem to forget that we're not watching this on the news from the safety of our homes - we're all bedlocked patients in that hospital.

    This guy is a machine of intelligence and charisma, he just kind of takes over the whole segment with his anecdotes and tangential improvisations! Seems like Stephen has to submit control of the segment to John and try and hit a few key points like promoting his guest's new stuff.
