Late-night comedians continued to crack jokes about embattled Mayor Rob Ford on Monday.

Jimmy Kimmel, Jay Leno and David Letterman both continued to mock Ford on their shows. Ford has been under fire at City Hall and in the sights of U.S. comedians since admitting to smoke crack cocaine earlier this month.

On Jimmy Kimmel Live, the host used clips from Monday’s council meeting where Ford mimed driving drunk on the council floor.

“Those improv classes are paying off,” Kimmel joked.

“I love him, I really do. Every time he’s in public he does something great.

“He’s my favourite new reality show. If he lived in America, we’d be renewing him for a second season.”

In the opening monologue on the Tonight Show, Leno joked about Ford reviving his aspiration to become Prime Minister of Canada.

“If there was anyone qualified for the highest office in the land, it is the highest mayor in the land,” Leno said.

Leno also referenced the Fords new show on the Sun News Network called “Ford Nation.”

“It was on TV tonight,” Leno said. “You know what the great thing about that show is finally a show with people on it that have less talent than the Kardashians - we have never seen that before.”

The comedian pointed out Ford was “pretty defiant, he told the council I am definitely not leaving this job.”

“Hey, Mr. Mayor, that’s what I used to say,” Leno said.

Over on Late Show with David Letterman, the legendary Top Ten list was once again based on Ford.

Letterman read through a list of “Top Ten Words Used To Describe Toronto Mayor Rob Ford.”

The list started with “Crack-nadian” and ended with “Large-and-no-longer-in-charge”

Here’s the full top ten list from last night’s Late Show:
