Late-Night Hosts Live-Tweet James Comey's Testimony

'Full Frontal,' 'Late Night,' 'The Daily Show' and more had a field day with Comey/Trump jokes.

When former FBI Director James Comey began his testimony before the Senate intelligence committee on Thursday, the late-night world was ready for it.

Long before late-night hosts set about their respective shows for the evening, the comedians took to their Twitter accounts to follow along with the hearing, the first time Comey spoke about President Donald Trump and Russia since his firing in May. Comey's public testimony will be followed by a closed session later in the day.

The testimony, airing live across news networks and streaming on Twitter, spurred jokes about Trump's constant tweeting, Comey's strong entrance and possible drinking-game ideas for the big event. 

See a few of the highlights below.
