Watch Anthony Atamanuik as Donald Trump Take Over @midnight’s Hashtag Wars
This week, @midnight is “sponsored” by Donald Trump or, rather, Anthony Atamanuik’s killer impression of Trump.
You can see that he does not disappoint in a round of Hashtag Wars with Katee Sackhoff, Natasha Lyonne, and Doug Benson.
Trump vs. Bernie Got to Go for an Hour on @midnight

@midnight Set To Broadcast Entire Episode Live Over Periscope
We’re guessing that might give them a little more breathing room when it comes to censors.
While doing a special live edition of @midnight with Chris Hardwick down in SXSW, Hardwick, Doug Benson, Arden Myrin, and Chris Cubas will mark a first in late night by broadcasting the whole episode exclusively over live broadcasting app Periscope.
As Periscope will be essentially utilized as an over-the-top service in this instance, it’ll be fascinating to see what @midnight does with no traditional commercial breaks or specific time limits, etc. while all still be a TV show being broadcast live.
Here’s the Line-Up for SXSW Comedy 2016
Brooke Van Poppelen
The Lucas Brothers
Paul F. Tompkins
the cast of Bajillion Dollar Propertie$
Comedy Bang! Bang!
Doug Loves Movies
The Hooray Show
The Imaginary Radio Program with Drennon Davis
The Laugh Button Live!
Maltin on Movies
Spontaneanation with Paul F. Tompkins
The Todd Barry Podcast
Trump Dump with Tony Atamanuik as Donald Trump
All of the above and more will be present and performing at SXSW in Austin, TX starting Fri. Mar. 11th.
If this peaks your interest (and we’re guessing that it does), you can register for a badge here.
@midnight to Have Champion Ron Funches Do a “Bunches of Funches” Week
Ron Funches is so dominant on @midnight that the show is pitting him to go through a gauntlet week to see if he can remain victorious throughout. We have no doubt that he’ll put his unstoppable charm on display for any and all challengers.
This Bunches of Week starts this week, which you should note as The Daily Show with Trevor Noah still hasn’t premiered yet, airs at 11PM on Comedy Central.
Watch James Adomian Play Bernie Sanders Playing @midnight
Maybe Sen .Sanders will have Adomian’s impression of him as a running mate?
Conan O’Brien Arrives to Comic-Con Mad Max: Fury Road Style, Passes ‘Comic-Con Citizenship’ Test, and Finds Audition Tapes for New ‘Wolverine’
On top of that, he found “secret” audition tapes for the new Wolverine that will soon replace Hugh Jackman which includes Hannibal Buress, Patton Oswalt, Larry King, and more.
Even more impressive than that, O’Brien passed a “Comic-Con Citizenship Test” proctored by none other than the Nerdist himself, Chris Hardwick.
This was all just Conan’s first day at Comic-Con and we can only imagine the possibilities of what’s to come. Let’s hope for special editions of Clueless Gamer and a walk from Triumph the Insult Comic Dog on the Comic-Con floor.
