Lewis Black returned to the Daily Show on Tuesday to bemoan how some of the biggest companies in the US are going tech-happy to appease millenials’ aversion to human interaction.
Things have gotten so bad, he joked, that even he is trying to reach the younger demographic
“Go ahead, swipe up and draw your d*cks on my face, you jackals,” he shouted at a cell phone perched just behind him.
Black was also annoyed that the casino and fast food industries were beginning to offer modern amenities like video game-style presentations and self-serve kiosks — and especially so when one young man complained that being able to order at McDonald’s with his phone would be more convenient.
“Kid, how little work do you want to do?” Black asked. “Does the cashier have to baby-bird your McRib right into your mouth?”
But after learning that the Chuck E. Cheese’s restaurant chain was adding wine and beer to its menu to draw millenial mothers in, Black came to a realization.
“You millenials disgust me,” he said. “It seems like all you wanna do is drink, gamble and avoid any kind of human interaction. Wait a minute. That sounds familiar. Holy crap — I’m a millenial.”
Black also had his first on-screen interaction with new host Trevor Noah, which was typically blunt.
“I really like what you’ve done with the set,” he offered.
“You really like it?” Noah asked sheepishly.
“No, I don’t give a sh*t,” Black responded.
