This was it, folks! The last Republican debate before the pivotal Iowa caucus next week. Donald Trump opted not to participate, holding a rally of his own a few blocks away, and the lack of Big Orange made for a somewhat calmer forum, to be sure. Megyn Kelly landed some hard questions, John Kasich defended his record, Chris Christie and Marco Rubio managed to fit some punchy one liners in, and Jeb Bush briefly stirred to life. All this and more, in the 29 funniest reactions by comedians to the last GOP debate.

I refuse to watch the undercard debate. I'm not giving the ratings to the people who need to drop out.— Caroline Craig (@CeeJayCraig) January 28, 2016
