The video starts with Wayne standing in a line with two other comedians (Colin Mochrie and Jonathan Mangum) as Ryan Stiles starts a new improv scene, pretending that the three are part of a police lineup.

"Can you pick out the man that robbed you?" Ryan asks an imaginary person next to him.

Colin and Jonathan, who are on either side of Wayne, start suggesting it was him.

Wayne then turns to the crowd to say, "Y'all know that's [expletive] up, right?"

The clip Wayne uploaded then cuts to a moment later in the show, where he and host Aisha Tyler get a chance to ROAST EVERYONE.

"Sir, can you pick out the man that embezzled hundreds of millions of dollars in the American economy, and then made you pay for it?" Aisha asks.

"You mean after systematically devaluing my education and relegating me to certain neighborhoods where I couldn't actually pursue the education that would enable me to rise to meet a certain fiscal stature in this country?" Wayne responds.
