Today’s Allison Langdon roasted by Karl Stefanovic over joke about NSW’s Covid restrictions

Today’s Allison Langdon is roasted by Karl Stefanovic for making a cringeworthy joke about a loophole in NSW’s Covid restrictions


Today host Allison Langdon was left red-faced on Tuesday after her joke about finding a loophole in NSW Covid restrictions fell flat. 

The 42-year-old attempted to roast her co-host Karl Stefanovic, 47, during a segment about the upcoming AFL grand final, but ended up being mocked herself after the joke fizzled.

The exchange began when Karl threw up his hands and declared: ‘I just want to have a few of my mates over to watch the grand final. I can’t even do that, it’s depressing’. 

Chuckling to herself, Allison interjected: ‘I actually reckon you could.’ 

‘How’s that?’ Karl replied. 

‘I’ve met some of your mates and I’d define them as children,’ she said, unable to stop herself from giggling.

Karl went stony-faced, refusing to laugh at Allison’s cringe-inducing gag as he replied: ‘Oh… with the laws around children.’ 

‘Yeah, so children can come… so I reckon you could have a few of your mates over,’ Allison awkwardly explained. 

Karl stayed silent, blankly staring back at a noticeably uncomfortable Alison. 

Not seeing the humour? Karl went stony-faced, refusing to laugh at Allison's cringe-inducing gag as he replied: 'Oh... with the laws around children'

Alex meanwhile attempted to fill the awkward silence by further explaining Allison’s joke, adding: ‘Because you can have three kids. Three children… without parents’.  

Karl eventually got in on the joke, shrugging: ‘It’s not a bad idea. Might give it a run. Well done Langdon.’ 

Laughing, Allison replied: ‘I’m here all morning’. 

‘You think?’ Karl quipped.
