LAUGH: Comedian John Crist on keeping it funny: ‘Comedy, it breaks down the walls’

Comedian John Crist joined Glenn in the studio Friday to talk about his tour, "The Human Being," and to share how he manages to keep the angst and anger of politics out of comedy.

"My dad was a pastor for 30 years and then he became the mayor, and I'm a comedian," Crist explained. "[My dad] said, 'we're all kind of doing the same thing … we look at the world and we don't like what's happening.' So he first tried to change people's hearts in church. And then he tried to fix it by changing laws. And I'm doing the same thing … I'm trying to fix it by changing people's minds … because comedy, it breaks down the walls."

WATCH: This is the Maybach Ultimate Luxury SUV (2020)

Mercedes-Benz is presenting the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury. The design of the crossover, based on an exclusive high-end saloon and an SUV, follows the philosophy of Sensual Purity.

The show car combines the comfort and typical strengths of both body styles. These include the raised seating position and the athletic looks. The Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury is conceived as an electric car. Thanks to its four compact permanent-magnet synchronous motors, it offers fully variable all-wheel drive. The output from the powertrain is 550 kW (750 horsepower). The flat underfloor battery has a usable capacity of around 80 kWh, producing an NEDC range of over 500 kilometres (according to EPA: over 200 miles). The top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155mph).

The fast-charging function is also convenient: thanks to DC charging based on the CCS standard, the system allows a charging capacity of up to 350 kW. In just five minutes, enough power can be charged to achieve an additional range of around 100 kilometres (62 miles).
