( applause ) ? it's friday it's friday oh ? it's friday ? >> stephen: i don't know what song you're dancing to but i like it. before we get started tonight. tonight's monologue was created in a factory that also processes peanuts. it's important to say in case anyone has an allergy. especially now, because mylan, the company that produces these epipens right here-- anybody use one of these? they have jacked up the price of these pens for less than $100 for a pair to over 600 bucks.
11:47 pm
send you into shock, but don't do it because you can't afford the pen anymore. now, mylan pharmaceuticals claims the price, "has changed over time to better reflect the value the product provides." ( laughter ) now, to be clear, that value is saving the lives of people who can't breathe. or as mylan likes to call them, "gasping, cash-filled meat sacks." ( laughter ) now all of this, you know, hi lot of people of a guy named martin shkreli, the pharma bro who jacked up the cost of h.i.v. drugs by 5,000%. can we put up a picture of skhreli? that was a close one. i'm severely allergic to douche.
11:48 pm
and when asked about mylan, shkreli certainly had something to shkrell about it. >> these are life-saving drugs. people don't have a choice whether they can buy them or not. >> yeah, well, that's up to insurance to pay for them. like i said, it's $300 a pen. $300. my iphone is $700, ok? >> but you don't need an iphone to exist. >> yeah, that doesn't matter though, because it's $300 and 90% of americans are insured. >> stephen: okay, i've got two problems with that: his total heartlessness, and her assertion that it is possible to exist without an iphone. so does she have a galaxy? i don't understand. well, after starting a firestorm, yesterday, mylan's c.e.o., heather bresch, came forward to address the criticism. >> heather, surely you must understand the outrage. the american medical association has said this is basically the same product it was in 2009, and yet the price has gone up 300- or 400-fold. >> so, look, no one's more
11:49 pm
( laughter ) >> stephen: she's frustrated! i mean, the tone-deafness of that just takes your breath away. and getting your breath back will cost you over 600 bucks. ( cheers and applause ) now, in other news-- in other news, the f.b.i. is investigating whether russian intelligence agencies have hacked the computers at the "new york times." or, as the "times" reported it, "putin named w's ( laughter ) oh, here's a new occupational hazard to worry about: if you play the bagpipes-- and who amongst us has not dabbled-- among us hasn't dabbled-- watch out that you don't get what doctors are calling "bagpipe lung." that's when the mold and fungi lurking inside your bagpipe trigger coughing, shortness of breath, and even fever. i mean physical fever, not bagpipe fever.
11:50 pm
this is according to an article in a medical journal called-- and this is true-- "thorax." i'm a subscriber. i keep it on my coffee table between the latest issue of "ant head" and "wasp abdomen." ( laughter ) bagpipe lung-- took a while for that to sing in, took a while. remember your eighth grade biology class? all right. footnotes for everybody. what's going on here, bagpe it's hard to distinguish a hacking cough from just a scottish accent. "och, let's go to loch lomond and eat some potted hough." ( cheers and applause ) so hasty with the... this week in other news-- yes, there is other news other than bagpipe lung.

( laughter ) so-- so i turned to him and-- i busted-- he busted a line so i busted a line. i was like, "richard, it prophets a man nothing to give
12:24 am
for whales." and we did it like that. >> stephen: well, you brought your phone out here. what'ss the deal? you brought your phone out here? >> i want to share a text with you i wrote with my kid. >> stephen: your film is called. >> oh, yeah, "yoga hosers." this movie i have coming out september 2, called "yoga hosers." also in theaters august 30. >> stephen: it's a comedy action? >> kind of. >> stephen: there's action in it. >> i like to describe it as out of the earth. i like to say it's like "clueless "meets "gremlins." and people have seen the movie and they say hey, man, "gremlins" is good. it's like "clueless" meets critters. and some people are like critters is good. and then it's like "clueless "meets "puppet masters nine." >> stephen: your daughter is in this.
12:25 am
here of your daughter and her friend getting in trouble. jim. >> like on this girls. no phones for the rest of the day! >> what! >> you can get them back at 2:45, after the last bell. >> our phones are who we are. if you take away my phone like some sort of pygmalion monaco, who am i going to be? >> i think i'm going to pass out. >> you is a no phone plan now, girls. unlimited unlimited looks to the world around you. and no roaming charges. so go roam without your phones. >> here i go. ( laughter ) ( applause ) >> stephen: now is that your daughter on the right on the the left? the one that passed out. >> stephen: the one that passed out. is it hard to direct your daughter? did they listen? >> the the set is the only place where, you know, you can get away with being, "you have to do this or you're fired." i can't do that in real life. so it's easier to kind of get things done.
12:26 am
dictatorial. i don't direct, like-- most critics will tell you that's true. i don't-- i don't direct like most people do. like here's the the feeling. it's nuanced. i'm a monitor director. so we shoot something and i say, "come over here and see haw did," and i show them the playback. no actor is going to do better if i say, "here, you can do this, or this." an act or orac reswant to look better than anybody else in the world. they'll figure out where they went wrong and go back in. i did that with her same way as with everyone else. >> stephen: you're 46-year-old man, right? >> i dress like a 12-year-old but i'm a 46-year-old man. >> stephen: is it hard to capture the way teenagers talk now as opposed to when you grew up? >> no, because i had the girls right there which made it also-- like i couldn't direct them to act like teenagers. they were teenagers when we made the movie -- >> what text did your daughter send you? >> we're going there.
12:27 am
>> it's a good story. we write back and forth all the time. my texting friend and stuff. this is a text exchange we have. i go on the road a lot. >> stephen: she's going to be cool with you sharing this? >> i hope so. she made it through "yoga hosers." so she'll make it through this. i tour a lot, i was away for three days and my kid texted me and said, "where is in the world are you, father." and i said, "atlanta, georgia" and it was 4/20, that date, national holiday for those of us who are the travelers of the green. i said, other i'm in atlanta, georgia." and she writes, "on 4/20? what if cnn catches you smoking." evidence impressed that a girl in private school knew that atlanta was cnn headquarters. i was like that private school is paying off. she said, when do you come home? i said saturday after the austins show. she said, "do you want to go to
12:28 am
they opened one, and i said we've already seen it. you know what it's like. and she said, "you don't believe in magic," and storms away. she was bugging me about going and stuff, i tried to take the logical approach. i said, "isn't it going to be crowded on a sunday?" and this when things get weird. "we can just buy front of the line passes, dumb bell lest you think that's the way we roll in our house, that's not the thing at all. she must have heard her mom call me that. >> stephen: true, true? >> yeah, my wife once called me-- we were fooling around-- it was a sex thing. and it was kind of like the wand chase the wizard sort of thing. ( laughter ) ( applause ) so, so-- but-- but, but there
12:29 am
knows that context. so i don't want to freak her out and send her to a therapist and stuff. so i say, "hey, kiddo, you're not allowed to call me that. only your mom calls me that." and she doesn't understand at all. instead she goes, "oh, mr. thin-skinned dumb bell dick bothered by his nickname." at this point i'm like, the gloves are off, man. i write back, "do you dick." and she don't even see it coming, man, which makes me rethink that private school education. so she wrote, "because you're the head of hog warts? ha-ha-ha." and i write back, "no, kid, it's a filthy sex thing, ha-ha-ha." ( laughter ) ( applause ) and she writes back, "oh, my god. of." and i said, "yeah, so keep
12:30 am
