Wednesday Recap - Ricky Gervais, Zac Posen, G-Eazy

Fun and games abounded on Wednesday's episode of Late Night when Ricky Gervais and Zac Posen paid Seth a visit. Plus, G-Eazy performed.

Seth's latest monologue was filled with revelations, like that Snoop Dogg claimed to have smoked marijuana in the White House. Joked Seth, no one had the heart to tell him it was a White Castle. In tech news, Apple filed a patent for a smart watch - so smart, in fact, that it would never buy itself. Get all the news from the monologue, including how Kim Kardashian's Hollywood game relates to Dante's Inferno, here.

As Seth and his wife Alexi continue settling in to their new apartment, the Late Night host is not gaining any ground in his battle to keep his knickknacks from going into storage. Trying to get the audience on his side, Seth showed off some of those items on Wednesday, such as framed newspaper clippings from when the Boston Red Sox won the World Series in 2004. See what else is getting booted from Seth's home.

To be as efficient as possible, Seth combined wishing some of his viewers a Happy Birthday and reprimanding his new neighbor Dennis into one segment. While he had nothing but best wishes for his viewers, Seth was firm that Dennis quit taking his New York Times and stop complimenting his wife on what a great volleyball player she'd make. Find out what else Dennis is in trouble for.

As part of Ricky Gervais' visit, Seth took an opportunity to ask the comedian, who's previously hosted the Golden Globe Awards, for some advice. In response, Gervais exposed his belly, mimed eating fast food out of a bucket and told Seth to picture that as his average viewer. The British funnyman also weighed in on his own Emmy nomination for his Netflix series Derek and what it's like to have gone from helping an up-and-coming Louis C.K. to competing against him for accolades. Watch the clips below.

Designer Zac Posen chatted about his upcoming third season as a judge on Project Runway and how his "Tourette's of the eyebrow" immediately gives it away to contestants when he hates a creation. With Posen having developed a reputation for his expertly worded put-downs, Seth also challenged the designer to see if he could recognize his own critiques versus those Late Night writers came up with. See how well he did.

Rapper G-Eazy took the stage Wednesday to perform his single "I Mean It." After releasing several compilations on his own, including Endless Summer and The Outsider, G-Eazy debuted his official studio album, These Things Happen, in June.
