[ light laughter ] wouldn't give you money. >> jimmy: wouldn't necessarily pay you. >> steve: you would get free food. >> jimmy: you get free food on the menu, and my mom was so happy when i got to work the improv. she was so happy that i eating some type of food besides ramen noodle, which is great. i still eat ramen noodle. but i remember, and i'll talk to budd about this. but i remember seinfeld came in one night. it was a big deal to work a saturday night at the club, and so i got my first saturday night. budd put me up and seinfeld was there eating food and i was like, "oh, my gosh." so i ran out and i called my mom
from the pay phone. this was when pay phones existed. any fans of one edition. [ laughter ] robin would know that. so i called my mom 1-800-collect, and i was like, "jerry seinfeld's in there, oh, my gosh." she goes, "what does he look like?" oh, my gosh, whatever. she's freaking out. my mother really doesn't sound like that. but it's funnier if i make her voice like that. so, i say, "i've got to go mom." so excited. -- so i went in and he went on stage, and just random, went up and crushed. he was so funny. standing ovation going up. standing ovation leaving the stage. just unbelievable to watch him. and then this was my first saturday night and i was later on in the night, and whoever the comedians that were supposed to follow him were like, "i'm out of here. i'm not going to follow that, man." some guy -- like, "who is jimmy fallon? we'll put that guy up." "oh, that's me." so i went up and i did impressions at the time. and i went up and instead i changed my act. i just started with the seinfeld impression.
it was about a doll, and i was doing different celebrities auditioning to be the new voice of these dolls so i went up and i'm like, "first up for the audition, mr. jerry seinfeld." i'm like -- [ impersonating jerry seinfeld ] "what kind of dolls are these? who knows this here? what is this?" and it just came out like that and worked and i had a good set.

[ cheers and applause ] you rock the monocle. you have to do that. >> why, you're quite lovely. >> jimmy: budd, can you believe that it's been 50 years? >> it's hard to believe. it's hard to believe that i started 50 years ago at the age of 8 years old. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: is that right? yeah. unbelievable. >> it's just amazing. >> jimmy: do you remember the first time we met each other? >> absolutely. absolutely. my -- well your career is due to my wife's good tastes because alex said -- we were sitting at the club one night, and we were going to leave and the manager came and said, "stay and see this kid. he's pretty good." i said, "i'm really tired." my wife said, "we'll stay." so we stayed, jimmy went on and he finished. and i said, "can we go now?" and my wife said, "just go and talk to the kid." and i said, "why? he doesn't have an act." [ laughter ] well, you didn't. >> jimmy: i didn't really have
one, no. i didn't really have one. >> and my wife very wise, even though she wasn't in the business said, "he's got something. go talk to him." and she was right. alex was right. >> jimmy: oh, my god, yeah. [ cheers and applause ] >> i'll never forget it. >> jimmy: i'll never forget what you did for me. you were so great to me. actually i was working in improv when i got "saturday night live." >> that's right. you owe . [ light laughter ] two and a half nights. you were at harrah's in las vegas. >> jimmy: that's right. >> and on wednesday he announces to the stage manager i have to leave tomorrow. i just got "saturday night live." [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: that's great. >> and by the way he was the middle act, not the headliner. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: very smart, yeah. that's the way it worked. to audition to you was a big deal, and a lot of pressure. you or ross -- mark -- how is mark doing? >> mark's doing great. he's still handing out candy kisses. you stole the idea here. >> jimmy: yeah. we gave -- everyone got a little chocolate before they came out tonight, right? [ cheers ] >> that's what mark used to do. >> jimmy: mark used to do that
at the improv. i would walk around the improv and it would be star-studded, all these comedians. it was just so much fun and i learned so much at the club. you've probably seen every comedian on the face of the earth. >> i think so. i think so. >> jimmy: do you have a favorite? >> well, it's hard to say. they are all my children. >> jimmy: that's true, yeah. >> and actually you're employing me tonight, so i would say you are my favorite. [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: that's all i wanted to hear. that's all i wanted to hear. don't say anything. we'll be right back. [ applause ] no, just kidding. >> well, i always have a fond place in my heart for bert klein because robert -- robert klein was the first of his breed. he was the first guy to make it out of the improv. he came into the club. he was in the chorus of "apple tree." >> jimmy: is that right? >> in a broadway show. and he just blew us all away. i think, my theory is that it was robert klein and "the tree" and then jay leno and jerry seinfeld and you. all these people, paul reiser,
all started through robert klein's influence. >> jimmy: i once saw robert klein at a comedy club and some couple was talking during the show and this other person came over to tell them, "hey. shh. please be quiet." and the guy who came over to tell him to be quiet was jerry seinfeld. [ laughter ] they must have been freaked out. like, "what? oh, my gosh." told him to shut up, but it was like because he was doing his act. please let himo his act. >> if he was in new york at the club it would have been danny aiello. he was our bouncer at that club. >> jimmy: crazy stories like that. i mean, andy kaufman. >> well, andy was something special. you all remember andy kaufman? >> jimmy: absolutely. [ cheers and applause ] >> andy, there was a fellow in great neck, long island, who owned a folk club. and he called me up and he said, "you've got to see this guy. he's a very funny guy." he would say that. "just see his act." i said, "okay." i didn't ask questions. >> jimmy: yeah. >> his name is andy kaufman.
so i said, "tell him to come in on wednesday." the guy shows up and says -- [ impersonating accent ] "hello." he says, "i am andy kaufman." i said, "hi, kid, how are you? where are you from?" [ impersonating accent ] "i am from an island in the caspian sea." "did you know there are no islands in the caspian sea?" i didn't. >> jimmy: i didn't know either. >> so he goes on, and i'm watching him. people are laughing sort of nervously, and we don't know whether to laugh or not, and then finally he finishes. and he does this elvis impersonation. and he sang like elvis, dead on. but i remember being in the service in japan, and the japanese girls who couldn't speak english could sing an american song no accent. but couldn't speak a word of english. i thought it was the same thing. and then andy says -- [ elvis voice ] "well, thank you very much." i knew i had been had. >> jimmy: yeah, right there. what a totally different act. it's in this documentary. >> yeah. >> jimmy: you have to watch it. it's on epix. you have keenen ivory wayans. ray romano. >> the whole wayans family. >> jimmy: the whole wayans
family. there are there. marlon and shawn are there. ray romano, jerry seinfeld, jay leno, bill mahr has some great stories. lewis black. i mean, everyone -- sarah silverman. judd apatow. kathy griffin. it's a phenomenal documentary, billy crystal and richard pryor is in it. it's quite amazing, and this is part of the documentary. >> oh, you've got. >> jimmy: i was talking about jerry seinfeld in the documentary, and watch what happens. >> jimmy: a lot of the guys like either if they were doing bits on "the tonight show," you know they want to get their act ready. so they come in and rehearse their "tonight show" bit to make sure they get all the kinks out and you'd see the best of the best. to see ray romano do standup is amazing. to be jerry seinfeld, it's just killer. even like, robin williams -- >> you saw me there? >> jimmy: oh, my gosh. >> i was there when you were there. >> jimmy: how embarrassing. >> how exciting!
>> jimmy: i didn't know i was there when you were there. >> oh, my gosh. >> jimmy: we gotta stop talking about it. >> that's exciting! >> jimmy: that's so embarrassing.
