>> have a great night, everyone. see you tomorrow. >> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live"! tonight -- matt leblanc. from marvel's "agent carter," hayley atwell. and chef jamie oliver. with cleto and the cletones. and now, here's jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ ♪ >> jimmy: i'm jimmy. i'm the host of the show.
thanks for watching. thanks for coming. i appreciate it. [ cheers and applause ] well, i'm glad you're here. it would be embarrassing if no one was here honestly. it's tuesday. i hope you're getting back in the swing of things. when you come back to work after new year's, the co-worker who decides to replace his chair with a yoga ball. that won't get old anytime soon. here's something i noticed. the supermarkets and drug stores used to give out paper bags. now to encourage us to start bringing in our own bags which i never, ever remember to do, they make us pay for them. i understand. to make bags you need trees and we need trees so dogs have something to pee an. yet as soon as your debit card goes through, the machine starts pumping out a receipt that just -- it sometimes like half the length of a football field.
it keeps coming and coming to the point you almost need a second bag just to carry the receipt home. and the reason they're so long is because they have coupons on them, which is helpful. i just bought my stuff. now i get the coupon. thank you. you think i'm going to hang on to this eight-foot long strip of fax paper so two weeks later i can save 19 cents on lunchables? i'm not. so over the break -- [ applause ] thank you. oifr the break, one of our writers went to cvs to buy a razor, which is nut enough. there was nothing else. he didn't need anything else. the receipt he got was so long he put it next to his pet for scale. his receipt was longer than his dog. we either need shorter receipts or longer dogs. i'm not sure which. i sent guillermo out to buy a snickers bar. one snickers bar at a bunch of
different stores in the area and bring that in. these are the receipts he came back with. and we're going to start -- we'll start with the shortest one which came from our local liquor store right don the block. >> yes. >> jimmy: that's the size the receipt should be. we don't even need that part to be honest. now smart and final didn't have snickers bar there. so what did you get? >> i got a hershey's. >> jimmy: no, that's a gummy bear it says. hershey's at a staples. they didn't have snickers at staples? >> no. >> jimmy: this is office depot. they didn't have snickers either. there's a real snickers shortage. you get a granola bar? >> granola bar. >> jimmy: still one item, one item. walgreens had a snickers bar. this is their receipt. ralph's snickers, this is their receipt. rite aid snickers.
this is their receipt. and our winner, cvs, one snickers bar -- [ applause ] all of that. coupons for more candy, body wash, advil, shampoo, duracell, tampons. they looked at you and said, yeah, this guy needs some tampons. >> no way. >> jimmy: this is crazy and it has to stop. i've decided that i'm going to start fighting to get shorter receipts. this will be my legacy. when i'm remembered after my death i want people to remember that's the guy who gave us tiny little receipts. next time you are at the store. i can't do this alone. next time you're at a store and get a receipt that's unacceptable long, take a picture and send it to me on twitter. together we'll use these photographs to publicly shame the companies that pump them out. or i'll use them to shame you
for the embarrassing things you bought at the store. either way, i win. who is returning things to the supermarket? we don't need any of this stuff. i'm hoping this wins me a nobel prize or a choice award. that will work. by the way, what happened to -- what happened to all the snickers and stuff. >> in my dressing room. >> jimmy: okay. this is what congress should be working on right there. we have a new and now republican-controlled congress starting today. the 114th congress. and they have one fan. convened today in our nation's capital. how is congress still a thing? i thought they got canceled after last season. their ratings were terrible. congress has an approval rating that's very, very low. their approval rating is 15% and you know you're in trouble when people like you less than they like jennifer lopez movies. 71 lawmakers in the new congress are freshmen. their parents helped them move
in over the weekend. they went to the container store and said tearful good-byes. one of the republicans first orders of business will be to undue president obama's initiatives an climate change. a lot of republican members don't think we need to do anything about climate change because -- well, i think because most of them are old, and they don't care. the republican anti-obama message has been blunted. they are very anti-obama by the fact the economy is strong now. unment is down, gas prices are low, inflation is low, interesterate rates are low. the stock market is high. but the president is still black and there's always that. what, he's not? he's half white. right, guillermo? >> right. >> jimmy: thank you. this comes from yesterday's edition of "judge judy." i have to believe this is real. there was a woman on the show yesterday with a very guilty
sounding name. >> valerie and her daughter claim crystal methven sold them the cat. >> jimmy: i guess we should be glad she's only selling the cat. the state ban on same-sex marriage officially ended yesterday. so at long last crockett will finally bible to make an honest man out of tubbs. it's hard to believe that a state that gave us gloria estfan is just now getting around to legalizing it. i assume florida will be filled with nothing but old people and gay people, just like an antique shop. here in california today, kind of under the radar. but we broke ground on the construction of a high-speed bullet train that will allow people to travel from l.a. to san francisco in less than three hours.
[ applause ] for now, until it's built we'll have to settle for flying there in 90 minutes. the train is projected to cost $68 billion and start service in 2029, which means the train will cost $190 billion and start service in 3022. by 2029, california could catch up to japan in 1996. as i'm sure you're -- you might not be aware. an this program we don't just focus on what's in front of the news but what's behind it. many thanks to the local fox affiliate in st. louis and an unwinning police officer for proiding us with tonight's edition of "behind the news." >> anthony joins us with more on the story. anthony? >> good morning, john and randy. i just learned that about 35 people -- >> supposed to be working
undercover. >> the state of colorado has an important new initiative to educate people about pot. first they legalized it. now they want to educate people about it, which isn't that what high school is for? why do you think they call it that? it's high school. colorado just wants a $5.7 million ad campaign that they say will take a neighborly approach to marijuana education. i think if you are making brownies you can go to your neighbors to borrow a cup of pot if you're out of it. the new campaign, it's friendly. instead of telling people not to smoke it, the ad is to use it appropriately. public space is not the place is the message. in the '50s, it was pot will turn you into a cannibal. now they're saying don't smoke in the park. they use public money to fund it. pot and education aren't a great mix. and to prove it, we sent a
camera crew to venice beach, which is probably the marijuana mecca of l.a. to find out what pot smokers know and don't know. let's see how they did in tonight's "pot quiz." >> what is your name and where are you from? >> jesse from nevada city, california. been living down in guatemala just on a trip coming back from mexico. enjoying the good vibes in venice beach. >> name three supreme court justices. >> three supreme court justices. i'm sorry, i can't answer that question. >> name three ways to smoke weed? >> you have a bong, you have a pipe, gravity bong is one of my favorites. >> name two u.s. senators. >> i have no idea. >> name two flavors of doritos. >> salsa verde and cool ranch. >> what state is jerry brown the governor of? >> i have no idea.
>> what band was jerry garcia the lead singer of? >> the grateful dead, man. >> name three supreme court justices. >> i don't even know one. >> name three xbox games? >> madden, call of duty and dead rising. >> what is a prime number? >> let's say 8. that seems pretty prime. >> what makes it a prime? >> like big truck guy, transformer. >> what month did we elect a president? >> that's a good question. the month? always like march? >> in what month do we celebrate pot? >> 4/20. >> what month is that? >> 5th march. >> everything is in march basically? >> yeah. >> what are obama's kids name.
>> i don't know. i don't even pay any attention to that dude. >> what are two of the kid an south park's names? >> kenny and stan. >> who said give me liberty or give me death? >> my dad says that sometimes. >> who says dude, where's my car? >> i think it was ashton kutcher. >> what is the 13th amendment. >> i don't know. to the constitution? >> what is the first rule of fight club. >> that you don't talk about fight club. >> name two branches of the u.s. government? >> the federal reserve and the house of legislators. >> name two strains of weed. >> oj cush and blueberry yum yum. >> name three renaissance painters. >> renaissance painters? yeah, i don't have the answer to that question. >> name three ninja turtles. >> donatello, rafael and
michelangelo. >> jimmy: pot quiz final. tonight on the show chef jamie oliver, from "marvel's agent carter" hayley atwell, and we'll be right back with matt leblanc.

little planes and rubber band launchers and all this -- so i snuck in there, and it was wrapped with the christmas wrapping paper and peeled the tape off really carefully. opened it up. took it out of the box. assembled it. played with it for like an hour and then took it back apart. same paper, same tape, same everything and on christmas morning acted surprised. >> jimmy: that must be where you -- [ applause ] that's where you realized. >> funny, too. >> jimmy: you had acting in you. >> christmas morning i take it out. oh, this is great. just what i want. i put it together in two seconds. she goes, wow. you put that together awfully fast. yeah, the instructions are pretty easy. >> jimmy: i'm a genius mom. you've always told me that. at that age did you know you wanted to be an actor? >> no, i was -- i think i -- everyone in my family goes to work with some kind of tool in their hands. i was going to be a carpenter.

>> thank you. >> jimmy: how many cookbooks have you written? >> that is my 15th. >> jimmy: i think i have 12 of them at my house. i have a lot of them. >> i need to work harder. where are the other three? >> jimmy: this is a good one. i went through it today. made me very hungry. how do you decide what is in? there's comfort foods from all over the world. >> yes. >> jimmy: how do you quantify what gets in there. >> comfort food is like a big edible hug. the food that makes life worth living. about memories, childhood, nan, mom, granddad. first time you tried something. for me about 60% of this book came from the heart. i want to keep it -- there's a big old world out there. i threw it out on to instagram. we had like 20,000, 30,000 comments on their favorite comfort food, what country they came from. i looked into the most popular ones and we started researching and cooking up dishes from asia, egypt, you name it. it's an international comfort
food book. >> jimmy: who wouldn't like to be comforted with food? it's one of the most comforting things there is. >> that's what it's all about. >> jimmy: what are we going to make today? >> british meatballs. >> jimmy: british meatballs. >> and, of course, when you make them, you can call them american meatballs. >> jimmy: we came to this land to get away from british meatballs. that is a big reason why -- >> and then you kicked us out and now we're back. so, guys, it's really about what makes the perfect meatball. >> jimmy: what does make the perfect meatball? >> two things -- >> jimmy: meat is one of them for sure. >> definitely. actually onions. two onions finely chopped. i've sweated it off for ten minutes with a good shake of worcester sauce and rosemary. once it's cooled down we're going to nix the meat. a pound of free range pork and lovely chuck steak. a pound of each go in.
would you mind or would you like me? give it a nice mix up. >> jimmy: with hands, i assume? as well when you use your hands, they're very clean. >> jimmy: purell right before this. they'll be a little hint of that in the meatballs. the hands are good -- >> it kind of gets the flavors. it really mixes up the meat so it sticks together. >> jimmy: what if i sneeze into it. will that help? >> it will probably give a little extra flavor. in the cooking it will kill all the bacteria. >> jimmy: this is bread crumbs? >> bread crumbs. >> jimmy: panko? >> just regular bread you can take your hands out. >> jimmy: what if i don't want to. >> you don't have to. here's some we made earlier. that's for drinking but --
>> jimmy: let me get that off there. >> if you take one of my balls and place it in my hand. get your finger. >> jimmy: congratulation. >> can you please stick your finger into my ball. then a surprise. a piece of cheddar. a little centimeter goes into the middle. when you pat this don, i want you to love the ball, nurture the ball. let it become a beautiful thing like it is in your own hand. >> jimmy: get that thing in the middle of the bal. >> as that cooks that will be a nice surprise in the middle. and we like that. this is what you do. comfort food is about not rushing. why we want fast food, quick dishes. sometimes for me on the weekend, take your time, love it, a couple of friends. >> jimmy: why play with each other's balls. >> it's what makes the world go
round. these go in the oven for about 15 minutes. and then we make a gravy. in the pan here we have a gravy. one onion. just kind of a handful of minced meat. minced beef. >> jimmy: not italian. in brooklyn we call a red sauce gravy. this is a real gravy. >> more american style. this is the kind of stuff i was seeing when cooking in west virginia. louisiana as well. a few gravy started like this. i like it. once the meat gets brown and onions go soft, little sort of british flavor thing going on. some nice red currant jam or black currant jam. a little vinegar. and beer. a choice here. an old english beer or american beer. >> jimmy: let's go with the english beer. you are english. you were in west virginia trying to get people to eat healthier. and this is what happened. you instead -- we turned you into a meatball eater.
>> anyone from west virginia, they've done amazing since the first season of "food revolution." >> jimmy: you were trying to get better food into the schools and now better water. >> tonight sacramento, the capital. last year i saw the governor and the speaker and bunch of representatives. we informed them that nearly half of californian kids don't have clean, safe water in schools. so for me as a foreigner, you know, it looks -- the water coming out, some of it looks worse than that. how can you talk about improving the food when you can't even get the water right. so they promised to fix it. they restructured the water bonds. we're going back a year later to see if they've done what they promised to do. it's weird a british kid would be doing it. >> jimmy: it is weird but thank you for doing it. >> i have a charity here. i work with california
endowment. we're proud of the work we do. [ applause ] it's really -- i know it's weird. i work in a lot of countries. we've got an opportunity to set an example in california. not just to the rest of america but the rest of the world as well. >> jimmy: you do a lot of good deeds. you're working with alice waters. a legendary chef. >> 40 years has been my hero. she's like yoda. and chef ann cooper is like another hero. like princess leah. i'm like, ides have to be luke skywalker. >> jimmy: yeah. >> we're fighting the rebellion which is the fast food industry and, you know, $4.5 billion of advertising -- >> jimmy: it's hard to compete with. >> the thing is, guys. 4.5 billion pounds worth of advertising every year to children. and that's what the parents of california and america have to deal with. so for me, and alice and ann
cooper, we believe that it's a child's human right to learn how to cook in school where food comes from, how it affects their bodies. at the end of the day, none of you are going to die young because you didn't do your geography homework. we need to arm children about food. you agree, don't you? >> jimmy: oh, yeah. feducation. i made that up. we're almost ot of time. >> in this gravy, we do flour, some jam, some mustard. >> jimmy: wow. something. >> we have a twang of vinegar. >> jimmy: are you sure this isn't a prank you're pulling? >> then take some of your clean water. don't worry. you're not going to eat it. if you remove that tray. the meatballs went in for 15 minutes. that gravy takes five minutes when you aren't talking about saving the world. put that in with your balls for another ten minutes and get something like that, which is a beautiful -- >> jimmy: they look nice.
>> -- beautiful selection. balls and gravy. >> jimmy: let me try one of these. oh, look who showed up all of a sudden. >> i love -- >> jimmy: wait until he puts some on the plate. that's beautiful. how beautifully presented. show that to everyone at home so they can look at that. there you go. that is nice. i'm going to try this right now. what do you got? >> it's good. >> jimmy: that is really dls delicious. who knew meat could be so good. jamie oliver. find out more about jamie's water initiative. go to that's his book. we'll be right back.
i want to apologize to matt damon. we did republican oun out of ti. "nightline" is next! good night! this is "nightline." >> a 30-year-old alleged lie demands more allowance from his wealthy hedge fund father. then the dad is found shot dead. what led to this wall street murder? tonight an ex-girlfriend of this suspected killer speaks. >> imagine using nothing but your hands and feet to scale this. if these extreme athletes reach the top, they'll make history on one of the hardest climbs in the world. we are with them halfway through their mission to complete the climb of the century. going downhill.
