LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: In his recent 'A Closer Look' segment on 'Late Night with Seth Meyers', Seth Meyers didn't just mock Ron DeSantis for dropping out of the presidential race; he turned his attention to Donald Trump's potential future as a stand-up comedian in prison.

As Trump faces scrutiny for alleged crimes, Meyers humorously speculates that Trump's post-conviction career could involve entertaining fellow inmates with quirky anecdotes about B-list celebrities from the '80s and comedy routines featuring malfunctioning toilets and rocket-loving tycoons.

Meyers imagines Trump's comedy stint behind bars

The NBC host playfully highlights an October clip in which Trump complained about mobster Al Capone's single indictment, presenting the idea that Trump is crafting his comedy bits specifically for a prison audience.

Meyers even takes on Trump's voice, imagining how the former president might weave tales of prison hierarchy with tax evasion jokes.

"If Trump ever does get convicted of a crime, at least he'll crush at the prison talent show. He's already got material that will kill with an audience of white-collar criminals."

This humorous take on Trump's potential popularity in a prison talent show adds a whimsical twist to the serious legal challenges the former president faces.

Meyers unleashes Trump's stand-up persona

Meyers doesn't stop there, he delves into Trump's commentary on notorious mobster Al Capone, who, according to Trump, was only indicted once despite his fearsome reputation.

Meyers, adopting a Trump voice, envisions the former president creating comedy bits tailored for a prison audience, saying, "It's like Trump is writing his comedy bits for a prison audience."

The segment reaches its comedic peak as Meyers, still in his Trump persona, jests about the hierarchy of crimes in prison.

"You know, they got Al Capone on tax evasion. That's a crime that puts you pretty low on the prison pecking order. There's only one thing lower than tax evasion -- hiding classified documents in the bathroom. This guy knows what I'm talking about."


Meyers' satire cleverly weaves together Trump's alleged legal troubles, his humorous musings, and the idea of a prison talent show.

As the laughter from the audience reverberates, Meyers continues to blend astute political commentary with his signature humor, providing viewers with a comical yet insightful take on the unfolding saga of Trump's post-presidential life.
