Great Cooking Segment Leads To Racial Humor Not Normally Seen On Late Night TV
With Jimmy Kimmel at home taking care of his newborn son, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” has had its share of diverse hosts this week. Last night, guest host Anthony Anderson had celebrity chef Eddie Huang give George Lopez and company a crash course in how to cook up some double fried chicken.
The first fry is the “slow fry” to get it tender, then you “fry it real hard,” Huang explained. Of course, George Lopez was on his game when it came to getting laughs from the audience.
Host Anthony Anderson served up a nice soft ball for Lopez, saying:
Lopez fired back with:
The segment was full of humor, but there was something else going on during the segment that people noticed.
Several commenters on YouTube noted the diversity of the guests during the cooking segment.
Lopez, Anderson, and Huang shared the stage with Guillermo and Anderson’s mother.
They left comments like :
“Whoa… a talk show on prime time TV with a black guy, an asian guy, and a Latino on screen?! i thought i’d have to wait at least 15 years to see that,” wrote YouTube user Josue Munoz.
They also felt the chemistry between all the guests was positive.
“Everyone’s ethnic so they can be a little racist to each other. In good fun,” wrote Edgar Badillo.
They were referring to the joke Eddie Huang made at 5:55:
As Huang seasoned the chicken, he told the panel he was adding the something like the Asian Lawry’s seasoning. Anderson asked, “The Asian lawry’s? So what’s it called?” To which Huang replied, “Rawry’s.”
The guests were so at ease with one another, the stereotypical joke actually got the biggest laugh of the segment.
Everyone was laughing, except for Guillermo, who looked like he was trying to send a text message with his chicken.
“wyd ? ”
