Comedians Tell Pete Holmes About the Time They Got Stoned and Went to a Fox News Taping

If you’ve ever been curious about some of the work that goes into big talk shows, go to a taping. Comedians Joe Mande and Noah Garfinkel told late night host Pete Holmes last week that they thought it would be fun to dress up and go to a Fox News taping. Only one caveat: they got stoned beforehand, and ingesting weed cookies before going to see Huckabee might just be one of the strangest and most hilarious things anyone has done or ever will do.

Both Mande and Garfinkel described it as a terrifying experience, and revealed that the studio has a giant mirror to convey the appearance of a larger audience. Mande said they planned beforehand to wear suits because they were worried they’d be recognized as Not Republicans if they wore anything casual, but it turned out they really over-dressed.

They said they both burst out laughing at the top, when Mike Huckabee himself came out and started jamming on his guitar. But it turned out they were not included in any audience shots on the show, which to Mande, meant “we were either so high and scary-looking that Fox News didn’t feel comfortable putting us on television, or we were so high that we never even went to a Huckabee taping.”
