The vast majority of late-night comedy airtime Wednesday was spent on Barack Obama’s Tuesday State of the Union address . Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon both took an opportunity to mock Obama’s somewhat awkward fist bump with Illinois Sen. Mark Kirk . On Comedy Central, The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart was very distressed about Obama’s mentions of problematic bridge infrastructure, while Stephen Colbert has a suggestion as to how to avoid said bridges.

Fast forward to 4:15 to see Stewart explain what will happen if our government continues its current level of dysfunction.
