Play of the Day: North Korean Nukes and Obama’s Speech

The comedy late-night shows tape in the late afternoon, so the hosts did not get to actually talk about Barack Obama’s fourth State of the Union address to Congress, but some did get some jokes in about the president. Jay Leno, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon all had some words about the speech. Meanwhile, with North Korea conducting its third nuclear test this week, The Daily Show, Fallon and Craig Ferguson analyzed the hermit kingdom.

Fast forward to 3:00 to see Kimmel explain Obama’s new plan for deficit reduction.
