Chris Gethard is an outstanding comedy show host, and if you didn’t already know that, this clip will show you why. Unlike stand-up comedians who write all of their own material, and comedic actors who have the majority of their lines fed to them, being a show host means being constantly bombarded with ideas from all kinds of different sources and never having enough time to perfect the idea or routine. What you get on the other end of that process is a little bit of funny and a whole lot of messy. Conan, for example, takes his biggest bombs and¬†finds a way to make them funny. Jay Leno, however, does that awkward thing where he keeps talking or just says the punchline a second time in order to hide the fact that no one is laughing, and then has a look of suppressed evil on his face like he’s about to fire all of writers and spread lies about their spouses.

In short, being a show host means being able to turn your stupidest moments into your funniest ones. 

And so without further ado, here is a video of Chris Gethard wearing clothes like “Carlton” from Fresh Prince, holding Ritz crackers, and dancing at the Ritz Carlton hotel.
