Jimmy Fallon has already mastered a Bernie Sanders impersonation

By Dan Kadar Published: February 11, 2016

Larry David is no longer the only comedian who can do a Bernie Sanders impersonation.

On Wednesday's episode of the The Tonight Show, host Jimmy Fallon unleashed his version of the Democratic presidential candidate.

I want to start by saying I've already begun to reach out to Republicans to help make this a positive campaign. In fact, I even asked Marco Rubio to help with my speech tonight, but he just handed me a paper with the words 'good evening' written on it 800 times. He's losing it!

Bernie Sanders brings laughs to 'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert'

By Dan Kadar Published: February 11, 2016

Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders was on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, but he didn't wait until his scheduled timeslot to make an appearance.

Sanders interrupted Stephen Colbert during the host's monologue to help introduce the night's show. About musical guest Drum TAO, a Japanese percussion group, Sandes said "You know, many of my supporters are very familiar with drum circles."

Sanders was the second guest of the night after actor Ben Stiller. Sanders and Colbert's discussed the senator's big win in the New Hampshire primary, which he won by 22 points thanks in large part to getting 86 percent of the vote of those 18 to 24. Because of that, Colbert compared Sanders to Mountain Dew's puppymonkeybaby, which expectedly flew right over Sanders' head.

It wasn't all just laughs between the two. At one point Colbert asked Sanders if he thinks there's a similarity in appeal between him and Republican hopeful Donald Trump.

San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich's priceless reaction to the New Hampshire primary

By Dan Kadar Published: February 10, 2016

San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich is well known for his hatred for sideline interviews between quarters. On Tuesday night, he had a pretty classic response to hearing the results of the New Hampshire primary.

Following the first quarter against the Miami Heat, TNT reporter David Aldridge asked the five-time NBA champion if he wanted to know the election results.

"Sanders and Trump," Aldridge said after Popovich bit on the question.

Popovich stared blankly for a moment that seemed to last forever before shaking his head and walking back to the Spurs' bench.

Rewatch 'Bern Your Enthusiasm' with Larry David as Bernie Sanders

By Dan Kadar Published: February 8, 2016

Sure, presidential candidate Bernie Sanders appeared in a sketch during Saturday Night Live, but it was far from the best one from the episode.

That honor goes to "Bern Your Enthusiasm," a play on host Larry David's HBO show Curb Your Enthusiasm. In it, David reprises his role as the Vermont senator and Democratic hopeful.

A common Curb trope is David being so socially awkward it leads to cringeworthy, but wildly humorous, encounters. That happens several times in the sketch beginning when Sanders, played perfectly by David, snubs a family at a rally.
