Cam’ron Squashes Holiday Cheer as Santa Claus on ‘Nightly Show’

“Santa Cam” dismisses wishes for world peace, doles out numbers for therapists, bootleg DVDs

Cam’ron donned a Santa suit and returned to The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore where he dismissed the Christmas wishes of the show’s staff with a hearty laugh and a sack of something green that definitely wasn’t mistletoe or holly.

From the start, Santa Cam wanted nothing to do with the petty lists of the Nightly Show‘s writers. He told one to buy his own kitchen flatware and another, who asked for world peace, “Now how the fuck would I fit that into my sleigh?”

Elsewhere, Santa Cam had the man who wanted to see his grandmother hauled off, flatly turned down one woman’s wish for a husband and gave the number of a therapist to the guy whose ramblings about Pokémon cards made him wonder if his parents even loved him. But there was one lucky boy who received a gift from Santa Cam, albeit unsolicited: “I got bootleg DVDs for you son,” the rapper cracked. “One for $5, three for $10. How you wanna do it?”

The office Santa sketch marks Cam’ron’s second appearance on The Nightly Show this year. In August, he appeared as a no-nonsense human resources manager doling out advice like “Stop snitching,” to a woman reporting office theft. The segment was part of a bit poking fun at Amazon’s toxic work culture, as reported by The New York Times.
