you don't know. getting answers to questions. but also keeping my sense of humor about everything so that you can get information in a a fun cool way. like imagine if, you know, "60 minutes" were funny. >> jimmy: yeah. >> so it's like that. i mean, that's the best way to describe it. so, you know, with me -- you know when you watch a show, it's never exactly what you want when you want it. it always happens. you get in the groove and then it changed a little. >> jimmy: exactly. >> i mean, you know, you did with your show. you made "late night" much more interesting than it was for a a long time. >> jimmy: thank you. >> now all these other jack-asses are trying to make it interesting too. >> jimmy: yeah, yeah, yeah, absolutely.

a parenting one. we did a parenting dinner party 'cause obviously i know so much about parenting. with kate hudson and mayim bialik. and malin akerman and randall park. i just like to post different groups of people together and have them in my home so it's comfortable for everybody. it's just a more interesting way to engage people and celebrities in general. you know, after they've done this whole routine of shows, i don't want to hear about that batman anymore. >> jimmy: no, you're don't with that. >> i mean it i want batman to take a long hike. >> jimmy: you want something different. you're doing this thing in one of the shows you're doing, you're working with lyft. >> lyft is like -- it's like uber but not. uber it's the other urber. so i did on these -- >> jimmy: you just pronounced it urber. >> i thought it was called urber. >> jimmy: i don't think you pronounce it uber. it's like -- >> i thought it was called umlach for a long time too. >> jimmy: i've taken that before. lyft is like the same type of deal, right? you catch a ride? >> yeah.

'cause i just wanted to really experience it and people are ass [ bleep ]. >> jimmy: like "undercover boss." >> sorry nbc and you're welcome. and then i did task master where people invite you to their home and you put together stuff for them. i can't believe stuff like this is happening. >> jimmy: i know, it's true. >> you just pick an app and like some stranger shows up. i showed up as me obviously to these people and they watched me put the furniture together which is not my ideal situation. >> jimmy: here's a clip. this is chelsea handler putting furniture together for someone. this is from her new netflix series "chelsea." check this out. it's may 11th. >> it's fun to do stuff regular people do, you know? ♪ i'm just messy when i open it. i can put it together though. >> okay.

[ cheers ] yeah. >> jimmy: half our audience are australians. >> they'll vouch for me. that was my background back home, before i started being very serious, was, you know, stand-up and like, yourself, sketch comedy. i mean, i was in a show called "full frontal" which was very similar to "saturday night live" actually. so, it was just all -- >> chelsea: does that show your penis, that show? [ cheers ] >> jimmy: no, no, no. >> no, it was, it was -- >> chelsea: forget it, i don't care then. >> family hour. >> jimmy: it was like "saturday
night live"? >> yeah, it was similar to "saturday night live." it was just all sketch based. we would do prerecord during the week and then friday nights we'd get an audience in. and i'd always get in trouble for laughing. >> jimmy: you would laugh in the middle of sketches? >> i was a shocker. you were really bad, too. >> jimmy: that's not true. [ light laughter ] my show didn't air in australia. i would laugh all the time. i felt bad. i didn't want to laugh but it was just so funny. these people were out of my league. i was acting with people like will ferrell and, you know, molly shannon and these people are just on a different planet. >> was will -- >> chelsea: it's the best feeling in a world when you cannot control yourself. >> jimmy: yeah. >> chelsea: and you can't be laughing and you just can't get it together and sometimes you urinate, you know what i mean? [ light laughter ] it is a pretty -- that's a a spectacular feeling. >> jimmy: it really is, and they would know that i'm an easy laugh so they would actually purposely do stuff just to try to make me break during sketches. >> the thing that used to get me was head turns. head turns were the worst. you start a sketch and you go like that.
every time. the minute someone turns their head towards me, i'd be gone. >> jimmy: i'd lose it, yeah. >> i once got ripped by my ear by the director and escorted out of the studio like a a 5-year-old. because there was a co-star that i would always laugh at. rima, her name was. and we would quite often do sketches together. and it got so bad, we got separated. and we'd have to do split screens. so, i would do prerecorded sketches to like, someone from the crew who would just sit there like this. >> jimmy: yeah. >> and then they'd get me out and they'd put her in and then cut it together. >> jimmy: i'm terrible like that too. i just start sweating and go, i just have to leave. like, ricky gervais was just here yesterday and we couldn't stop laughing. he laughs a lot. >> he's a big laugher. >> jimmy: which is good, i like that. >> i was originally scared that i'd get in trouble for laughing on the set. he's the boss, writer, director, and co-star. but he was worse than me, so it was like a match made in heaven. >> jimmy: oh, really? really, because he wouldn't stop? >> he couldn't stop. it got to the point where i'd be like, ricky, we got to get the shot before lunch. no, no, we'll never get it. [ bleep ] off, get out of here, no, no, move on.
we'll never get it, forget it. move on. [ light laughter ] it's not happening. it's not happening. no, no. >> jimmy: but he made you do, you have a, well he didn't make you do, but you have a great new york accent in this movie. and he did not. he told me yesterday, he chooses never to do any accents because he's just too lazy. he doesn't want to. >> i'm very envious. there's a lot of australians in hollywood obviously but we never get to be australian. it's quite racist actually, when you think about it. [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: yeah. >> we never, ever. we have to hide. we have to, you know, suppress our identity. i thought about it for a a second. you know, maybe i could get away with it. 'cause there's plenty of australians in the media. but kelly mcdonald was from scotland. i'm from australia. and, ricky was from england. and so it was like, we weren't going to get away with it. >> jimmy: yeah, it's too much, yeah. cause it is airing in netflix, yeah. but netflix airs everywhere. >> exactly. >> chelsea: you're the only one in this room that's not on netflix. >> jimmy: i know, i'm the only one that's not on netflix. >> chelsea: we're one big netflix family. >> jimmy: we got to talk to you a little -- we can make this work.
>> jimmy: should i set up the movie at all, "special correspondents?" basically, you guys are supposed to do -- you're an on air radio reporter. you're supposed to do a special from ecuador. >> mm-hmm. >> jimmy: but you lose your tickets and actually don't go to ecuador, and you end up doing this thing from across the street in a hotel room. >> we hide in a tapas restaurant upstairs and set up a studio and pretend we're in ecuador and the lie just gets bigger and bigger as the movie goes on. >> jimmy: we have a clip. here's eric bana and ricky gervais. in "special correspondents." take a look at this. >> this place, might be a rebel stronghold, these are kind people. simply not in their nature to let a man die on their land, whoever they are.
