Late-night comedians focused on Washington as the government shutdown and debt ceiling negotiations dominated the news. Here's what they said. (The Washington Post)

When The Fix listed his winners from the shutdown fight, one group was too obvious to include: Late-night comedians, who got ample material from the events in Washington in the past few weeks.

On Background producers combed through the best jokes from "Saturday Night Live," "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" and some unintentional cable news comedy. Watch the compilation and tell us if we missed any of your favorite moments in the clips, or you can tweet them to @Background.
