The first Democratic 2020 presidential debate provided late night TV hosts with plenty of comic fodder on Wednesday.

Viral moments, including former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s answering a question in Spanish, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s perpetually running down the clock, and President Donald Trump’s childish Twitter commentary gave the comedians on duty plenty to mock.

“The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert joked how the first debate between Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass), Sen. Cory Booker (N.J.) and O’Rourke against “several people angling for MSNBC shows” was actually “an excellent dress rehearsal for tomorrow’s actual debate” involving the front-runners, former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

The Comedy Central program also live-tweeted throughout:
