[ cheers and applause ] ♪
>> jimmy: thank you very, very much. welcome, everybody, to "late night with jimmy fallon." thank you for being here. hot crowd. hot crowd, right there. [ cheers and applause ] welcome, welcome. we're going to have fun tonight, you guys. here's what people are talking about. katy perry raised some eyebrows today in a new interview. katy said that too many female singers are wearing revealing outfits just to get attention. [ laughter ] unfortunately, the interviewer didn't hear a word she said because fireworks were coming out of her bra. [ laughter ] point taken. [ cheers and applause ] point taken. thank you very much. hey, guys, halloween is just a couple of days away. [ cheers and applause ] the fun times. be safe, everybody. this is a fun thing. krispy kreme says that it will give a free doughnut to any customer who shows up wearing a costume on halloween. yeah. so if you're the kind of person
willing to take the time to dress up in a costume just to get a free doughnut -- [ laughter ] then, yes, this is rock bottom. [ cheers and applause ] this is it. nothing but up from here, baby. [ light laughter ] i'm batman. okay, that's it. [ laughter ] speaking of halloween, i read that americans are expected to spend more than $2 billion on halloween candy this year. those americans are honey boo boo and mama june. [ laughter and applause ] [ as mama june ] "i want my reese's, y'all!" [ laughter ] i couldn't believe this study. this is true. oh, man. higgins, this is going to bum you out. new study says that eating pasta -- you guys like pasta? [ cheers and applause ] get ready for this. i know, me too. a new study found that eating pasta can actually cause depression. [ audience ohs ] yeah. though, not as much as that other thing, dressing up like
batman to get a free doughnut. [ laughter and applause ] that's the worst. but then pasta -- >> steve: it's all up after that. >> jimmy: let's see what's happening in washington. the spying scandal here is all anyone's talking about. they're saying the u.s. has been listening in on german chancellor angela merkel. but now, obama is claiming that he didn't know about it. [ light laughter ] in fact, earlier the president called a press conference to address the issue. he admitted to a lot of things he wasn't aware of. let's take a look. [ cheers and applause ] >> my fellow americans. first of all, it's true. the u.s. has been spying on german chancellor angela merkel, but the fact is, i wasn't aware of it. just because i'm president doesn't mean i know everything. [ laughter ] case in point, i just found out that the pumpkin spice latte -- not made with real pumpkins. [ laughter ] it's all chemicals.
i mean, come on, what? not real pumpkins? another thing, i wasn't aware that "sister act 2: back in the habit" is a pun. you see, the habit they're talking about is a nun's habit, like the things they wear, you know, on their head. a habit, all this time i thought it meant they were back in the habit of singing and dancing. [ light laughter ] whoopi one. obama zero. [ laughter and applause ] here's another one. here's another one. i didn't know that snuffleupagus is big bird's imaginary friend. and only big bird can see him. i mean, if that's true, how can i see him? [ laughter ] am i big bird? am i big bird? [ laughter ] i have no idea at this point.
#i'mshakingmydamnheadonthatone. [ laughter and applause ] finally, this one really freaked my bean out. [ light laughter ] i didn't know that steve urkel -- sounds like he might be related to angela merkel was the same person as stefan urquelle. [ laughter ] i mean, look. look now. steve urkel is a little pip-squeak nerd and stefan urquelle is a smooth, suave sex machine like me. [ laughter ] but apparently, they're the same person. that's kind of [ bleep ] up right? i mean -- oh, oh. oops. [ as urkel ] "did i say that?" [ laughter ] and in conclusion, all right. i didn't know we spied, so that means i'm off the hook, suckers. obama out of here. [ cheers and applause ]
>> jimmy: president obama, everybody. [ cheers and applause ] you guys, earlier this week, hackers from syria targeted president obama's twitter and facebook accounts. which got even weirder when obama hired them to fix the obamacare website. [ laughter ] you guys know what you're doing? you guys even know what you're doing? this is pretty cool, actually. did you guys see this? a blooper reel from the original "star wars" movies was leaked online this week. that's right. a series of embarrassing "star wars" mistakes caught on film. or as fans call that, the last three "star wars" movies. [ laughter and applause ] there you go. you nerds out there, you liked it. yeah, yeah, yeah. >> steve: meesa liked that. >> jimmy: here's some more movie news. after the success of the action movie, "the expendables" -- you know that movie? well, there's talk there's a new version starring only women is in the works. yeah, a female version of "the expendables." it's gonna be a lot like the one with schwarzenegger and stallone but with smaller breasts. [ laughter ]
very excited about that. [ scattered applause ] the winter olympics are now just 100 days away. we're all excited here at nbc. it's on our network. [ cheers and applause ] sochi! it's in russia. [ with russian accent ] and russian president vladimir putin -- i have to pronounce it like that. thank you rosetta stone. [ laughter ] the russian president vladimir putin now says that gays and lesbians will be welcome at the games in sochi. isn't that great? isn't that nice? [ cheers and applause ] that's nice. we were worried about that for a second. in fact, they've even decided to change many of the current olympic sports to make them more gay friendly. for instance, the biathlon -- [ laughter ] will now be the bi-curious-athlon. [ laughter ] the two-man luge will now be the two-man lube. [ laughter ]
>> steve: how would you consider that a sport? >> jimmy: i don't know how you would score it. finally, men's figure skating will now be men's figure skating. there you go. [ cheers and applause ] it will be more exciting for everybody. set your tivo's for the olympics. some more sports news. i saw that the nba started back up tonight. very excited about the nba. it's back! [ cheers and applause ] that's right. the miami heat are hoping to win their third championship in a row, while the other teams are just hoping to have some fun out there. [ laughter ] oh, i just heard this. this is weird. it's not good. i read that a gallon of milk could soon cost more than $8, if congress can't agree on a farm bill before the end of the year. well, i guess why it explains today. a cow came up to me and said, "hey, let's cut out the middleman. seven bucks a gallon." [ laughter and applause ] all right. crazy story over the weekend.
a man in texas -- i think it was down in dallas, actually. this guy actually survived being struck by lightning twice in the same weekend. [ light laughter ] yeah, he said he's grateful to be alive, and that it's all thanks to his lucky metal hat. that's what saved him. my lucky metal hat. [ laughter ] this video -- i'm going to show you a video that just made me laugh today. this is just insane. i love this. two fishermen were working on a travel show for a tv station in mexico. and they were taking a photo with the fish they caught, when a sea lion showed up out of nowhere. check this out. >> oh! >> jimmy: yeah, baby! [ cheers and applause ] it got weird when, minutes later, it came back and stole a six pack of beer. we have a great show tonight. give it up for the roots, everybody.

or do you do it differently? >> well, i worked on this collection very much the way that i like to see the design in the world. and this particular collection was very minimal. kind of more luxury because it's fall. so you want to bundle up more and feel more luxurious. so it's very classic. you know, my father always taught me to maintain a sense of classic style. that never goes out of style. >> jimmy: yeah, classic never goes out of style, which is why i bought this hair.

you guys met on set, and then fell in love. >> there you go. >> jimmy: i bought a horse once. i got asked to invest in a horse. >> uh-huh. wise move, yeah. >> jimmy: it is. >> that and a boat. >> jimmy: i know. >> yeah, get both of those. >> jimmy: i just thought, "look, if m.c. hammer can do it, i can do it." >> yeah. >> jimmy: and so i invested in this horse. i thought if you get a horse that you can name it whatever you want to because it's yours. >> yes. >> jimmy: so i was going to name it something like sea warrior. >> uh-huh. good idea, yeah. >> jimmy: the names are always tricky like that. and i'm going to say like, you're going to win. you're going to win the kentucky derby or whatever. i don't know what my goal was. >> yes. >> jimmy: i was like, "great." and the go, no you can't name your horse. the horse is named from the sire and the -- >> oh yes. yeah, yeah. >> it has something to do with who the mother and father of the horse. >> yeah. we named our horse mother and father. yeah. >> jimmy: is that right? see, that's confusing. but, i get the name of the horse. and the name of the horse is, i swear, is poco bueno. [ laughter ] which means "a little bit good." >> yes. >> jimmy: so i go, "well, what happened? who bought mucho bueno?"
who bought bueno even? what happened with this? anyways, we bet on him. i went to the otb and bet on him, and he lost. came in last place. >> well, i had the same problem. yeah. here's a look at you and your buddy. you and harvey. this is one of my favorite sketches, the dentist. >> yes. >> jimmy: everyone will remember this. i remember crying. i think this might be one of the first times i actually from laughing that hard. >> actually, if you watch it on television, and if you watch very closely in a two shot, you can see harvey actually wetting his pants from laughing. >> jimmy: for real? >> oh, yeah. yeah. >> jimmy: does he really? >> very poor intestines, yeah. >> jimmy: well, the fun thing was, was that you would surprise the other cast members with different bits? >> yes. >> jimmy: you have a talent that i don't have. many talents i don't have. but one is -- first of all, you're funny. second of all, you can keep a straight face when you're in a comedy sketch. >> yes. >> jimmy: where i cannot.
i laugh at every single thing. i just love to laugh. i'm not that great of an actor, but will ferrell would do stuff like you would do. he knew i would laugh. >> yes. >> jimmy: so you knew that harvey korman would laugh, and you were like, "i'm going to make him laugh." >> well, harvey claimed to be one of the great authorities on comedy, and he really wasn't. [ laughter ] so he said, "you should never laugh at your own material." and i said, "well, nobody else is." >> jimmy: how do i get the ball rolling? yeah, yeah. >> i want to jump in there and start something. so away it went. >> jimmy: away it went. and all the stories are in here. gosh, if you guys want to read a funny book about just how to be funny and the just road to being funny -- i just loved it so much. i can't thank you enough. i'm honored to have you on the show. and, hopefully, you come back. >> i can take a note of rejection. this is -- it's over. >> jimmy: it's almost over.
