tv Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC September 30, 2015 11:35pm-12:38am PDT
>> jimmy: hi, everybody. i'm jimmy. i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching. thanks to all of you for coming. welcome to southern california. that's very nice. we have a special show for you tonight. the entertainer known as mr. warmth, don rickles is with us tonight. [ cheers and applause ] that means it's not a good thing for you guys sitting in the front row. especially if you made the mistake of having a nationality, you're in a lot of trouble. don rickles as you know is the number one insult comic in america who is not currently running for president. that honor goes to a different done ald, donald trump, who is achkry today. "fore"magazine released their annual list of the "forbes 400" ranking the wealthiest people in america. bill gates, 22nd year in a row
he's number one, $76 billion. yet he still has an $11 haircut, it's amazing. warren buffett, $62 billion. here's the funny part. donald trump finished 121 on the list and he's not happy about that actual. "forbes" says he has a net worth of $4.5 billion. he says, that's wrong, i'm worth $11.5 billion. this is what makes him relatable to voters. "forbes" stands by their estimate but trump said they're trying to make him look as poor as possible. i don't know. saying someone has $4.5 billion makes them look poor? underprivileged maybe but not poor. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] i do like donald trump's way of thinking. it's not how much money you have, it's how much money you feel you have. when he negotiates with the chinese it's going to confuse the hell out of them. donald trump has very good self-esteem.
say what you want about him. most people aren't able to compliment themselves so easily. in fact, we went on the street today and we asked people to say three nice things about themselves. and this is how that went. >> say three nice things about yourself. >> i'm -- uh -- i don't know. >> say three nice things about yourself. >> i don't know. >> oh -- i don't know. >> name three things that make you better than anyone else. >> i don't think i'm better than anyone. >> name three things that make you better than everybody else. >> i'm good-looking, i have great style, and i work out. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: well. quite right on that. then he disappeared in a puff of axe body spray, it was amazing. here's a business that might make the "forbes" list next year. the sandee sioux tribe is getting ready to open what they
call america's first marijuana resort. further cementing south dakota's status as party cap actively the ups united states of america. they claim this will be the first marijuana resort. there are already thousands of marijuana resorts in this country. they're called colleges. universities. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] the trying was very high on this, they believe the new resort will generate profits of more than $2 million a month. and i tell you. the nice thing about running a marijuana resort is you don't have to worry too much about the activities. you don't need a golf course, you don't need tennis, you continue need swimming. all you need is the cartoon network. maybe a late checkout. and you're good. this is a crazy thing. this happened to a family in nogales, arizona. a bundle containing 28 pounds of marijuana dropped from the sky, crashed through the roof of their carport, and landed on an empty pet carrier. that's the marijuana. who says prayer doesn't work? [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ]
nogales, if you've never been there, is right on the border of mexico. the house is 1,000 feet from the border. authorities believe it was either a drug drop gone wrong, or santa claus got lost delivering woody harrelson's christmas present. the family, they called 911, they woke up to find that marijuana has gone through the roof. the operator was like, tell me about it, i can barely afford rent. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] [ band drumroll ] >> this is another story about something dropping in arizona courtesy of a weatherman, corey mccluskey, from the fox affiliate in phoenix who did something i've never seen on television to earn tonight's award for "excellence in reporting." >> you know i love the tuba. it's one of my favorite instruments. listen to that.
>> he lost his mike down there! down the tuba. >> that's not a tuba, by the way. >> jimmy: which is more embarrassing? be the guy who dropped the mike or the guy who knows the difference between the tuba and the sousaphone? last week pope francis carved time out to meet with kim davis, the woman who refused to issue the same-sex marriage license in kentucky. the reason they met is the pope wanted to deliver a message to kim about god, which was "fire your stylist." [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] isn't that crazy? i'm surprised kim davis was able to get the time off from not doing her job to visit with the pope. she claims the pope hugged her, thanked her for her courage, and told her to stay strong.
really? i think i would rather the pope met with kim kardashian than kim davis while he was here. i'd rather he met with kim jong-un when he was here. someone should tell the pope, i know this is his first time in america, somebody should explain kim davis is what happens when your state has more waffle houses than schools. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] this is an important story. for those of you who like to make selfies, police in colorado are warning visitors to national parks there not to take selfies with elk. last week a guy was thrown into the air by an elk when he got too close. he was trying to take a selfie. apparently people do this a lot. they think elk are friendly but the elk, some of them weigh more than 500 pounds and they have built-in selfie sticks sticking out of their heads. i don't know who these people are who think it's a good idea to take selfies with large, dangerous animals. people do it all the time. life is not a hannah barbera cartoon. these animals are not -- some an
mays you should never go near. this is something one of our guests tonight, dr. ken jeong, feels strongly about. on top of being an actor ken is a medical professional, he is a doctor, as a public service prepared this presentation for anyone who may come in close contact with wildlife. please welcome dr. ken jeong. [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you. ♪ there are over 42 million species of animals in the world. some are great for taking selfies with like my little friends here. but you should probably keep your distance from the others. so to help you remember which is which, pay careful attention to this. ♪ you can't take a selfie with a chicken with a cow ♪ ♪ take a selfie with a sheep or a big fat sow ♪ ♪ take a selfie with an emu
stake a selfie or get real baked take it with snoop dogg ♪ here are some animals not to take selfies with. ♪ don't take a selfie with lions and bears oh my or rattlesnakes and scorpions will make you die ♪ ♪ selfies with piranhas is a big fat know a naked selfie with a herd of buffalo ♪ yee-haw! ♪ don't take a selfie with a gator or an elk or baboon ♪ ♪ a great white shark or a rabid raccoon ♪ ♪ nor gary busey because he's very insane ♪ now this is a speed round. so buckle up your seat belts. ♪ mongoose no llamas yes ♪ hyena no narwhal not sure not jaguars no shrimp yes ♪ ?
how much longer is this going to go on? >> well, there are 42 million species so -- >> jimmy: yeah, it's too much, really. we've got to end this at some point. you can't name every single animal. >> do you want people to die, jimmy? hm? >> jimmy: no. i don't want -- >> you heard it! jimmy doesn't care about your life, kids! none of you guys! good luck! >> jimmy: that is not true, don't be like that, ken. dr. ken jeong, everybody. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: when we come back, i would encourage you to come back because my cousin sal pulled off what is probably, this is a big statement to make, the greatest carpet cleaning prank ever pulled. come on back with us.

on-set. we do it in front of a live audience like this. it's so much fun to perform every week in front of a live audience. >> jimmy: what do your id kids think about the fact that you now have tv kids? >> oh, yeah, they actually have albert si who pys my son. >> jimmy: very funny kid. >> funny kid. this kid is a national treasure. he's their favorite actor. he's their favorite asian male act over "dr. ken." >> jimmy: including dad? >> including dad. the other male actors? no, no, no? nobody else. someone older? nope. >> jimmy: on the pilot episode you do a johnny carson impersonation. >> yeah. >> jimmy: did you did do that for don back stage? >> i didn't have time. i used to do standup as a hobby while doing medicine. it's a whole weird life i had. >> jimmy: yeah, really. >> i had no other hobbies. no golf. i would do standup. this is 20 years ago. this is how dated my act is. but my first joke was a johnny
carson in korean. i'm not even making that up. it was about -- it was in reference to -- such a dated reference. john wayne bobbitt. who got his member shaved off by his wife. >> jimmy: yeah, yeah. >> and my -- swear to god, first time i did standup, it was totally like -- this is johnny carson. ken jeung doing korean johnny carson. i -- is that -- i -- [ speaking foreign language ] john wayne bobbitt. [ speaking foreign language ] [ applause ] >> jimmy: it still works. [ speaking foreign language ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: you must see so much funny stuff as a doctor. >> oh, yes. >> jimmy: every day something funny must happen. now you can use that stuff. are you using real cases and
instances? >> yes, i am. the pilot and subsequent episodes i am. one that i can't use, it's -- where i'm not -- choosing not to use. it's a sweet story. when i was a ris deesident i wa taking care of this elderly man in e.r. who had amnesia, total loss of memory. >> jimmy: people really have amnesia? it's not just a tv movie of the week thing? >> no it's not. >> jimmy: was it coconut related? usually somebody gets hit on the head with a coconut. >> this was a rare noncoconut-related incident. >> jimmy: wow, that was rare. >> it's like amazing. but the patient had a total loss of memory. i did a cat scan, i did mri, carotid ultrasound, full neurological exam, completely normal. his memory was coming back. his lovely 80-year-old wife is fidgeting. i was like, is there any precipitating event that could have caused these symptoms? this lady's like, well, um, we
just had sex. and it's a condition called transient global amnesia which you lose your memory, it comes back, and you're totally fine. but it's by a precipitating event in this elderly couple. so medically speaking, she [ bleep ] his brains out. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] it's a fact. it's not dirty. it's a fact. >> jimmy: wow. >> not being dirty. >> jimmy: lucky gentleman, huh? >> lucky gentleman. >> jimmy: i hope he remembered it finally. >> yeah. the treatment is lube and a bunch of high fives. i don't know. >> jimmy: dr. kim jeung, everybody!
