  1. Doug Jones – Tuesday – December 12, 2017 –
    The people of Alabama will decide… Well, the people of Alabama decided #DigDoug

  2. I don't get it, joking about these stereotypes especially in this uncritical light manner, just reestablishes them ever so strongly. I guess they deep down appreciate them cause those stereotypes give them identity and content.

  3. Can anyone explain to a Non-American why exactly Seth can't tell these jokes? How is the ability to tell funny jokes conditional on the identity of the person who tells them? Doesn't make the least bit of sense to me. A statement is a statement, a joke is a joke, an opinion is an opinion – they're all independent from the person.

  4. I really hate that "black women and lesbians are liars!!" It contradicts the whole segment and makes the crowd uneasy…. weird

  5. unfortunately for me, i no longer feel i can appropriately state the growing effect amber ruffin is having upon me, other than to categorically assert that i like it.

  6. It's not that Seth couldn't tell them – I don't think he WANTS to. They're simply not good jokes. He usually gets better ones.

  7. am i the only one who didnt like their delivery at all?
    i kept waiting for a funny punchline….but no luck…
    i guess that's why they are writers and not hosts….

  8. This is probably one of my favorite reoccurring segments. Whether or not/even if you don't like the jokes, their chemistry all together is always great

  9. DAMNIT!!!
    A 4th Seth I hadn’t considered in my plot to have an episode/film/etc with all the famous Seth’s together in one spot 😤🔥!?!

  10. Seth Meyers is the bet thing that happened to Late Night. And this section is the best thing that happened to this show.

  11. I miss Living Single. I loved that show as a kid… which is a weird TV show for a ten year old white girl to adore, but there it is. I need to go find those DVDs…
