Premium- Awards -A List Of All The COVID Jokes From The 2021 Emmys
They say that humor is mankind's best survivor tool (my mom has that on a pillow in her sun room, so) and the COVID jokes at the 2021 Emmys were some of the sharpest in the shed. The novel coronavirus was definitely the heavy-breathing elephant in the room and thankfully, the comedians acknowledged it, one joke at a time.
Below, all the coronavirus jokes from Sunday night's ceremony.
Seth Rogan: "Let me start by saying there are way too many of us in this little room! What are we doing! They said this was outdoors! It's not! They lied to us! We're in a hermetically sealed tin right now! I would not have come to this! Why is there a roof? It's more important that we have three chandeliers than that we don't kill Eugene Levy tonight. That is what has been decided. This is crazy, I went from wiping down my groceries to having Paul Bettany sneeze in my face."
Cedric The Entertainer: "Unlike what Seth was talking about, it feels good. We all had to get vaxxed to come here. I got vaxxed. I did not have a reaction like Nicki Minaj's cousin's friend, OK? I got Pfizer, because I'm bougie. That's the Neiman Marcus of vaccines. Moderna? That's Macy's. Johnson & Johnson, that's TJ Maxx, of course."
Ken Jeong: "I didn't four booster shots to present remotely." ... "Can you open up Doctor Ken's bag and help him find is vaccination card, please? Wow. Wow. Doctor, actor, Instagram model." Security pulls out a pill bottle labeled Ivermectin Tables USP. "This Ivermectin isn't mine, it's left over from my Joe Rogan swag bag, sorry to name drop."
