“I don’t normally drink, so it’s okay for me,” Cooper added, before asking Cohen if he was “going to be able to make it through the night.”
“That’s the question. We’ll see,” Cohen replied. “Do I have a pocket full of edibles? I do. Will I take them? I don’t think so. I don’t know, it’s a long night. It’s a disease-free telethon, Do you understand? We’ve been here all night passing the time.”

“I still feel this sadness, this loss tonight, but to be able to spend it with my friend Andy, and with all of you who tune in, and then come home to a house where my two boys are sleeping in their cribs and will wake up the morning laughing and joyful…it became a very different night for me…and I’m grateful for that,” he wrote.
