And I may be that particular person to remind them.”

For all of her pre-show campaigning, Handler casually sauntered onto the Every day Present stage Monday night time, providing a sheepish however heat “Hey, guys” because the warm-up comic roasted the gang. She appeared understandably nervous however in excessive spirits as she launched her brother Roy, seated within the entrance row, earlier than promising the viewers was “gonna fucking love” the present. (Some viewers members appeared predisposed to benefit from the episode—together with a number of excited followers I noticed watching clips of Handler’s standup earlier than she entered the studio.) 

“That is the place I get to spend every week speaking shit about all of the wackjobs and sizzling messes on the market, however I do it sitting behind a desk as a result of I’m an expert,” Handler mentioned in her signature deadpan, shaking off many of the seen nerves on the high of the present. She then shuffled by means of the day’s headlines—beginning off with the Chinese language balloon {that a} U.S. fighter jet shot down off the coast of South Carolina on Saturday. “As you heard, this balloon was the dimensions of three buses,” Handler started. “And for the wealthy folks on the market who don’t know what a bus is, they’re these large yellow autos that deliver Matt Gaetz’s girlfriends to high school.”

Handler gamely sparred with correspondent Dulcé Sloan and appeared in a clip spoofing celebrities who take diabetic drug Ozempic for weight reduction. (“I would like it to host The Every day Present!” she mentioned earlier than tackling a person to the bottom.) Nevertheless it was her skewering of the aforementioned “wackjobs and sizzling messes” that earned Handler’s largest laughs.
