>> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live!" tonight -- trey parker and matt stone. adam scott. and music from everclear. with cleto and the cletones. and now, and from here on out, here's jimmy kimmel! ♪ it's "jimmy kimmel live" [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: thank you, thank you. welcome. hi, everybody. i'm jimmy, i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching. thank you for coming out tonight. and i will say, i am proud to accept your nomination for president of the united states. thank you. [ applause ] sorry, i was watching c-span all day. you know, this democratic
national convention wraps up in charlotte tonight. there were a lot of speeches, touting president obama's accomplishments since he took office and, yes, osama bin laden is dead now and the auto industry seems to have pulled through pretty well. but on the other hand, back in 2008, there was no snooki, there was no honey boo boo. and now there are both. snooki even had a child. and someone has to be held accountable. that's my take on this. former president clinton made an impression last night with his speech. president clinton is a great public speaker. a lot of his speech was improvised, but he does the trick to stay relaxed. he imagines that everyone in the audience is naked, except hillary. [ laughter ] calms him down. mrs. clinton watched her husband's speech via computer. from southeast asia, she's over there working. this photograph has been widely circulated online today. they seem so happy together when they're not together, don't they? [ laughter ] it did give me a sense of
nostalgia to see clinton on stage speaking like that. ill mean, remember, when he was president, the biggest problem we had, i think, was ross and rachel were going to get back together and they did, thanks to him. he was supposed to speak for 28 minutes. he ended up speaking for 48 minutes. the crowd ate it up. bill clinton last night was to the democrats what channing tatum is to drunk girls. he got them very worked up, ready for a baby, and -- [ laughter ] you could tell by the way he ended the speech that he knew it, too. >> and you must re-elect president barack obama! god bless you and god bless america. ♪ don't stop thinking about tomorrow ♪ ♪ don't stop ♪ it'll be here better than before ♪ ♪ yesterday's gone ♪ yesterday's gone ♪ don't stop >> jimmy: they call that the clinton clutch. [ laughter ] but it's good to see that they're getting along. [ applause ]
this -- this is a fun way to watch clinton's speech. you know that game you play when you get a fortune cookie and you add the words "in bed" to the end just for fun. worked pretty well for clinton's speech last night. >> one of the reasons we ought to re-elect president obama he's still committed to constructive cooperation -- >> jimmy: in bed. >> and if you will renew the president's contract, you will feel it. you will feel it -- >> jimmy: in bed. [ laughter ] you see? it really works for probably any speech, but -- not all of the speeches at the dnc were as good as president clinton's. i watched all day leading up to the primetime. some of them are very hard to sit through. most of them, senators, mayors, governors, more than a hundred speeches last night and over the last three days. but this one, i think, may have been the best of all of them.
[ cheers and applause ] >> thank you. i was born in a small town, in a small car, with a small bell around my neck that would ring like freedom rings. [ applause ] my grandfather was a coal miner, and an immigrant. [ cheers and applause ] we don't want charles in charge. we want barack obama in charge. [ cheers and applause ] >> four more years! four more years! >> who wants to take their shirts off, huh? and get a little weird? >> jimmy: he's got my vote. i don't know what he's running for.
there were a lot of celebrities at the convention. jessica alba, eva longoria, ashley judd was there. kerry washington gave a speech. then scarlett johansson spoke. president clinton must have been going nuts. i think that's why they had him there last night. but kim kardashian is reportedly in charlotte to attend the dnc afterparty. not because she was invited. federal law requires that a kardashian be present at any officially sanctioned afterparty in the united states, so she was there. there were a number of high profile musicians today, too, james taylor, too figfoo fightey j. blige. there's a lot of passion at these things. with that said, it's time for the dnc dancers of the night. ♪
>> jimmy: really getting -- [ cheers and applause ] hey, we've got some fun guests waiting patiently backstage for you tonight. adam scott is here tonight. we have music from everclear, and we'll be graced by the presence of trey parker and matt stone, creators of "south park" and "the book of mormon." if you aren't -- if you haven't gone to new york to see "the book of mormon," this is a musical they wrote. it's fantastic. if you haven't seen it, here's a clip. ♪ for purple mountains majesty above the fruited plains ♪ >> jimmy: i think we may have loaded the wrong clip, but you get the idea. mitt romney, hey, this is interesting. mitt romney may have been hacked. as you probably know, he's refused to release any of his tax returns from before 2010. but now, anonymous group of hackers is claiming that last month they broke into the accounting firm where romney's financial records are stored.
they hacked into the computers and stole his tax information. which sounds like the plot of the most boring heist movie ever, but -- it's true. the hackers are now threatening to release the returns unless romney pays them $1 million. which i would ask for more. you can probably find $1 million in the plates of mitt romney's dockers. a lot of people are interested in seeing the tax returns. i'm not. i would rather see his web browser history. i think he'd learn a lot more. if he release his taxes, we'll find out he's rich. we all know he's rich. we see what kinds of things he's searching for at, like, 2:00 a.m. on a wednesday. that will tell us who this man really is. next week, simon cowell and britney spears will be here. there's a bitter few brewing between "the x factor" and "the voice" on nbc. simon blasted nbc for scheduling an extra episode of "the voice" on wednesday next week because it overlaps with the premiere of
"x factor" on fox. he said he thought he had a gentlemen's agreement that the shows won't overlap. now they will. he said it's a cynical, cold-hearted unprofessional way of doing business. [ laughter ] he knows he's simon cowell, right? [ laughter ] i got to ask him about it. i don't like when singing competition shows fight. it's a shame. you would think they're working towards the same goal, which is finding mediocre singers who will probably never be heard from again. i'm glad that simon got that off his chest. now, if he would just get the baby gap t-shirts off his chest, we'd be onto something. this is something you might find interesting. in germany, someone has created a bike with no pedals. instead of using pedals, you just push the bike along with your feet. basically they've invented a broken bicycle. [ laughter ] they've uninvented the bike. technology was originally developed by fred flintstone. the best thing about these bikes, you don't have to lock them up because no one would
ever want to steal it. here is another innovation. this one is all american. starting later this month, a jewelry store is running a special. anyone who abuse more than $2,500 worth of diamonds gets a free hunting rifle. buy her a diamond, get a free hunting rifle. that's -- if the diamond doesn't convince her to say yes, maybe the rifle will. the company's website says diamond or rifle, this hunting season, you don't have to choose. [ laughter ] by the way, if you really do have to choose between a ring and a rifle, you might be better off spending that money on some kind of couple's therapy. god gifted us with a new episode of "here comes honey boo boo" last night on tlc. shame on you. [ laughter ] what they've done, they took the most repugnant family in america, they found them on "toddlers and tiaras" and awarded them with a show of their own. the star of the show is a 7-year-old known as honey boo boo child.
last night, her show tied president clinton's speech in traitings. that's right. just as many people watched honey boo boo. well, you're about to see why. honey boo boo and her family went to a barbecue restaurant and let us in on how they manage to stay so fit. >> my family just loves to eat. >> she wants the three combo. >> okay. >> and the ribs with the barbecue chicken. >> and potato salad and baked beans. >> i don't think you're going to eat all this. >> but i want it. >> but she want it. her eyes are bigger than her mouth, i think. >> we're fat. >> jimmy: remember when tlc used to be the learning channel? it's not that anymore. although we did learn that they're fat. yeah. one more thing. it's thursday night, it's time for our weekly tribute to the fcc, where we bleep and blur things whether they need it or not. it is "this week in unnecessary censorship." >> everyone, needless to say, here, is looking forward to
having the president [ bleep ] a blooep wloo[ bleep ], so to spe. >> i found out that i was making significantly less money than the men who are doing the same work as me. i went home, talked to my husband, and we decided to [ bleep ]. >> this is something that i've dreamed about ever since i was a little boy, [ bleep ] in front of the mirror with my dad. >> is this a night you've been looking forward to for awhile. >> [ bleep ] cowboys butts, absolutely. >> if mitt was santa claus, he would [ bleep ] the reindeer and [ bleep ] the elves. >> what happened to me last night? >> you [ bleep ] everyone. >> no! >> an elementary school principal shaved his [ bleep ]. to keep a promise. >> after last night, i want a man who had the good sense to [ bleep ] michelle obama. ♪ >> yes, that's it. [ bleep ] it, clark. [ bleep ] it.
[ applause ] >> jimmy: hey, tonight on the show, adam scott is. here we have music from everclear. and we'll be right back with the guys behind "south park" and "the book of mormon," trey parker and matt stone, so stick around. been shopping so smart, cash back with your freedom card getting cash back on what? close shave and haircut fan for the ceiling. you're gonna cool off that hoooounddd! tonight you gotta get your cash back, on new slacks. use freedom on lunch with jack. everybody get! everybody get! get your cash back.

>> jimmy: well, hello there and welcome back. tonight on the program, from "parks and recreation," our pal adam scott is here. and then with music from this new album called "invisible stars," everclear from the bud light stage. we have a very good lineup for you next week, too. dr. phil will be here. i have some problems i need to discuss with him. lea michele will be here. simon cowell and britney spears will be here tonight. dakota johnson, simon bird, terry bradshaw will hopefully show up. we'll have music -- i think he's cancelled on us the last three times in a row. yeah. music have the avett brothers, rita ora, slightly stoopid and dave matthews. so please join us for the shows next week. we'd appreciate it. our firsts guests tonight are the greatest cartoon
geniuses/broadway musical impresarios -- maybe ever. they are the creators of the emmy-winning "south park" and the tony and grammy-winning "the book of mormon," now playing at the pantages theatre here in los angeles. please welcome trey parker and matt stone! [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: with all your success, you haven't changed at all. how you doing? good to see you. congratulations on everything. it's been going great. >> yes. >> jimmy: yes, yes? the show is fantastic. and, i mean -- i guess when a show becomes super popular, it then goes on the road and you do it in various cities and not just new york. >> it's like having a baby. you give birth to this thing and it keeps living and performing and you got to check in on it once in a while. >> jimmy: yeah.
ideally you check in on a baby more than just once in awhile. >> just once in awhile. >> jimmy: how many productions are running right now? >> just this one and new york. >> broadway and l.a. now. >> jimmy: and you have london coming up in the future? >> and chicago. >> jimmy: chicago, too. and this one will go from l.a. to where? where is the next stop? >> san francisco. >> jimmy: and already, well, in new york, you can't get a ticket. it's sold out through january. >> we actually can. that's what's messed up. of course everyone wants us to get them tickets. so, but what they don't realize is we have to pay for them, which is the first thing, because with movies and stuff, you don't have to worry about that. this is a living thing, everybody is employed by it. so, we get asked by people -- >> jimmy: i get asked for tickets because i know you guys, all the time. and i make up all sorts of lies to say i can't get tickets for people. because i don't want to bother you asking you for tickets for people. you have to pay for themselves yourselves? >> yeah. we're lucky to have fans who,
hey, can i go to your concert. you know this, you get hooked up, look me up with a ticket, sweet. i don't think they have to pay for it. but in theater, every seat has to be paid for. we're going to go to the theater tonight and we have to pay for that seat. >> jimmy: you have to pay for your own? >> yes. >> jimmy: really? >> i have to pay for the seat. >> jimmy: is that true or -- >> it's totally true. and we literally spent tens of thousands of dollars on getting -- because it added up. just like, $200 here, there. >> friends want to go, you have to -- >> two years, tens of thousands -- >> losing money on this thing. >> jimmy: this is terrible. they say -- matt and i are the single biggest ticket buyers, for sure. >> that's why it's sold out. >> jimmy: that's a terrible plan. you have need to renegotiate, i think. you really do. and you started the tour in denver. that was the first stop on the tour. >> yeah. >> jimmy: your hometown. was that exciting or -- i imagine that was a pain, though, with all the people there. >> yeah, we got -- every night,
i mean, really hard to figure out who we were going to get tickets for and who we weren't. >> jimmy: who would ask you? >> everyone. my fifth grade music teacher asked me, through people through people, you know? and it was like, even my father, he's like, i'm not getting tickets for people anymore. everyone got sick of being a secretary. >> i had a doctor in l.a. that i went to one time in the '90s, for some reason. literally, in the '90s. he called asking. >> jimmy: did you? >> no, i was like, no. >> my girlfriend -- >> jimmy: hold on. rewind a little. your girlfriend, who? >> boogie. her hairstylist wanted tickets. what did you think? oh, we didn't make it but we paid for those! >> jimmy: oh, boogie -- >> they thought they got free tickets, so, whatever. >> jimmy: did you have celebrities come to the preneer in denver?
>> we tried to get the denver broncos to come. but we thought -- we're hot shots now, we're back in denver, now we can meet the broncos. and they didn't get back to us. >> jimmy: none of them? >> we thought we were big cheese. no. >> jimmy: did you invite john elway? he didn't show up? >> still not cool enough. >> jimmy: is that right? none of the broncos had time -- >> no broncos, no nuggets. i didn't see any rockies, no avalanche. nothing. >> we were the two celebrities here. >> jimmy: this will be different here in l.a., i would think, right? >> i don't know. we invited some clippers and -- >> jimmy: clippers are bad to invite. if you get stuck sitting behind a clipper at a show, you can't see anything. >> that's true. >> jimmy: don't -- uninvite the clippers. did you invite -- >> i'm sure we have to pay for their tickets anyway. >> jimmy: don't invite too many people. when you go back to your hometown, do you go to your old spots, or is it one of those -- >> i actually went to -- we had the documentary, we did behind the scenes -- >> jimmy: oh, that was great.
yeah. >> and they now are doing something else so they wanted to see where i grew up. so, we took them up into the mountains in colorado and i thought, you know, oh, i won't recognize it. it hadn't changed at all. like, there wasn't even a house that had been remodeled. it was like, every house was -- i'm like, there's kyle's house, kenny's house. everything was the same. and then we drove up to where i grew up and it was just like, i saw cars in the driveway, i was like, okay, wait, i didn't want to walk in with a camera crew. i walk up. there's guys working in the groj garage. i was thinking, how do i say that? excuse me. the guy goes, you're trey parker. i'm like, yeah. he goes, i knew this day was going to come. i was like, wow, really? hold on, i got something for you. he goes into the house, he comes back out with my high school class ring. he goes, is this yours? i was like, yeah, that's -- this was in the vent. and the documentary guys caught
it on tape. crazy. >> jimmy: that's pretty great. you got your class ring back. that's nice. >> and he got tickets to book of mormon that i had to pay for. >> jimmy: seems like a pretty good trade-off. did you get to go in the house and look around? >> yeah, everything was exactly the same, and i went into my room, which is, like, we all go back childhood rooms and it was a nine by nine cell. and just -- how did i live here. >> jimmy: did you get emotional in the house? >> no, no. >> jimmy: i didn't think so, i figured i would throw it out there. now, you guys -- i don't know, do you guys care what other people think in general? it seems like maybe you don't. >> a little bit. >> jimmy: the reviews for "book of mormon," when they first came out, did you -- is that something you were worried about, you thought about? >> yeah, reviews -- i think more than, like, reviews in theater mean a lot more, especially -- >> jimmy: why do you think they mean more? >> i think because -- compared to tv, right now somebody is watching this at home and it's free, they just shut it off and walk away.
probably doing that right now. and with a movie, it's ten bucks, for some people, it's not that much money. if it stinks -- theater is so much money. 100 buck us, a big night out for people to go and i think reviews matter. people need to, okay -- it's such an investment of time and i check reviews for theater, because it's not uncomfortable to watch a junky movie, but when you have to sit there, you're looking at them -- >> looking at you like they know it's bad, too. >> i understand why reviews are more important. >> jimmy: so, "the new york times," which is -- that's the most important of all the reviews, right? it comes out and -- how long after the show premieres does it come out? >> the night of the premiere. >> comes out opening night. a funny thing, we were, like, at the afterparty of the opening night and everyone who was in the theater world is like, literally, 10:38, at 10:38 the review comes out.
some time, they all knew and they magically all knew when it was going to come out. >> jimmy: this is all the doubters and deniers out there, the ones that say that heaven on broadway does not exist, that it's only some mist our ancestors dreamed up, i am here to report that a old fashioned please sure giving musical has arrived. it asheaved something like a miracle. "the new york times." then, what happens when you guys read this? >> a few drinks. >> jimmy: entertaining act of musical comedy. and maybe most importantly, the ultimate accolade came from twitter. "saw the book of mormon last night. have you guys seen it? it's hysterical. so pleasantly surprised." kim kardashian. >> wow. and that's when you say -- >> that's when you know you did it. >> it's all worth it. >> "new york times," kim kardashian. >> jimmy: if kim asks you for tickets, will you provide them for her? >> hell no. >> jimmy: when we come back, because it's about mormon, i

>> jimmy: hi there, we're back with trey parker and matt stone. adam scott and everclear is still to come. the show is called "the book of mormon," playing in l.a. you guys are doing a thing for fans who maybe can't afford the expensive ticket. that other people can. tell us about that. >> we're doing a $25 lottery, which is like, which is the first row of the theater. you show up a couple hours ahead of time, put your name in a hat and they pull. >> jimmy: if you don't get the tickets, do you keep the $25? how does it work? >> you get it back. >> jimmy: you do? that would be more fun the other way. >> we've been doing it on broadway, because people who can't afford to see the show, get to see the show. usually those people are the biggest fans and then they're in the front row and they are just so psyched and it makes the actors psyched and the whole thing just feeds on itself and helps. >> jimmy: definitely. mitt romney apparently -- >> he can afford the 25.
>> jimmy: he can afford the tickets. have you invited him to the show? >> we have. we'll do it again. we'll pay for his ticket. >> jimmy: do mormons like this play in general? >> yeah, no, what's crazy is -- we've noticed more and more mormons that show up and a lot of them kind of see it as their "fiddler on the roof." >> jimmy: really? >> you can just see -- and you know that when there's a big group of mormons there because they're really inside mormon joke and they laugh. >> jimmy: this is pretty amazing too. this is the play bill from the theater. we did not fake this. >> we just found this out last night. this is unbelievable. >> jimmy: so, "the book of mormon" is not just a miss call, it's, of course, the bible. for the church of latter day saints. they took out advertising in your play book. >> they did. >> jimmy: i've read the book. the book is always better.
you've seen the play. now read the book. are there black mormons? i find that hard to believe. >> it was so funny, because we actually talked -- when we were writing the show, we were like, it would be really funny, we should put in the playbill, if you would like to know more, visit your local temple. that would be hilarious. and they did it themselves. >> jimmy: they paid to do it. >> they paid to do it. >> jimmy: what's going on with "south park" right now? when does that come back on?
