While some Americans were day drinking their way through former FBI director James Comey's testimony about President Donald Trump in front of the Senate on Thursday morning, late-night comedians were hard at work crafting their best material.
Colbert described Comey's testimony about Trump's credibility a "bombshell," while Meyers pointed out that there have already been so many bombshells about the current White House administration, that Americans aren't nearly as bothered about them as they should be.
Here's what three of the biggest late-night comedians had to say about the political spectacle.
'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert'
Colbert started off his recap of Comey's testimony, which he gleefully named "St. Comey's Day," by suggesting the former FBI director compile all of his memos about Trump into a children's book, "James and the Guilty Orange."
As much as he seemed to appreciate Comey coming forward to deliver "one of the biggest bombshells to date, Comey flat out saying the President of the United States lied," he couldn't resist poking fun at the former FBI director's detective skills, since Comey's reasoning for writing down such detailed memos was because Trump "might lie about the nature of our meeting."
"He thought Trump might lie? That’s that razor-sharp F.B.I. instinct in action right there," Colbert joked. "'Look, fellas, I don’t want to get out over my skis here, but I think this dead body might not be alive.'"
'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon'
Fallon also found humor in Comey's suspicion that President Trump would lie about their meetings together.
"Comey said that he kept memos of his meetings with Trump because he felt that the President might lie about them,” Fallon said. “Even Trump was like, ‘Yeah, that sounds like me.’”
Unlike the rest of his late-night competition, Fallon also found a way to get a dig in at Vice President Mike Pence - a politician so conservative, he refuses to dine alone with female colleagues because he's a married man.
“Comey also talked about rumors that his conversations with Trump were recorded, and Comey said, ‘Lordy, I hope there are tapes.’ When Comey said ‘Lordy,’ Mike Pence was like, ‘Ah! Language! Watch it, ear muffs,'" Fallon joked.
Since the hearings aired on television at the same time typical daytime soap operas were, the comedian also combined the hearing with clips from soap operas to make the high-profile political event all the more dramatic.
'Late Night with Seth Meyers'
In another dose of his popular "Closer Look" segment, Meyers gave his viewers a little insight into as to why Trump waited until hours after the hearing to tweet about it.
"His staff was reportedly terrified that he would tweet during the hearing. So terrified, in fact, that they tried to pack his schedule to keep him preoccupied," Meyers said. "It's a sad state of affairs when the White House staff has to handle the president like a toddler on a road trip."
Meyers also argued that the hearing was not nearly as shocking for the American people as it should have been, it's because "we are already surrounded by previous bombshells."
"Our capacity to be shocked has already been so worn down by the Trump presidency. He's like your druggy cousin who can no longer surprise you," Meyers joked.
"For example, Comey said Trump called him about of the blue and said he had nothing to do with Russia, had been involved with hookers in Russia. Can you imagine any other president saying that? And yet it's barely shrug inducing," Meyers said. "You're almost surprised Trump didn't throw in a second country. 'I had nothing to do with hookers in Russia or Thailand.'"
On the bright side, at least, Meyers recognized that all this talk about hookers "gave us the delightful bonus of watching serious reporters have to repeat those words on national television."
