Jimmy Kimmel & Stephen Colbert Roast the Emmys for Not Having a Host

Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert banter back and forth while on stage at the 2019 Emmy Awards on Sunday (September 22) at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

The late night talk hosts presented an award together, but first they roasted the awards show for going on without a host. This is only the fourth time in history that this has happened.

“Well, well, well, how’s the whole ‘no-host’ thing going? What a joke,” Colbert said. Kimmel then replied, “What a dumb idea. So stupid. You know what has a host? Applebee’s has a host.”

“You know who the real victims are here? It’s us,” Colbert said. “Hosting is the only thing we know how to do.” Kimmel added, “I’m sorry, but this show sucks!”

“It’s just sad. Hosts aren’t optional. Without a host, who would read the words, ‘You know my next guest from the hit series NCIS: New Orleans?’” Colbert continued.

Jimmy then replied, “No one would. Without a host, who would sit behind a desk and pretend to be interested in Jason Bateman’s vacation story?”

More late night hosts at the show included Seth Meyers, Samantha Bee, and James Corden. Check out the photos in the category!

FYI: Stephen and Seth are wearing Dolce&Gabbana. Samantha is wearing Hearts on Fire jewelry.
