Sean Spicer had the crowd roaring when he brought Melissa McCarthy's podium onstage for his grand entrance at the 2017 Emmy Awards (Sunday, September 17).

"This will be the largest audience to witness an Emmys, period," Spicer starts. "Both in person and around the world."

An inside joke between the two stars, the prop is taken from McCarthy's own infamous SNL impersonations of the political aide. The entire audience burst into a fit of uncontrollable laughter, while the Tammy star looked on in self-satisfied amusement.

Watch Spicer's hilarious introduction and McCarthy's reaction, below.
