[ laughter ] >> jimmy: you're running out of breath. >> it's me and dee on city bike. >> jimmy: it's you and dee on a city bike. you're looking at the camera and the bike at the same time. >> i'm about to kill myself. >> jimmy: was it easy to get the bike? i haven't done it yet. >> oh, man. i'm one of those people, i'm very easily intimidated. and -- i think city bikes are great. cab drivers hate city bikes, just so you know.
>> jimmy: they do. >> this cab driver went off on city bikes one day. >> jimmy: what? >> i guess it's -- whatever. anyway -- >> jimmy: cab drivers are mad at anything. >> they are, yeah. but whenever i go to get a city bike, if you -- there are -- there is this list. like a lot of directions. and a lot of words. and -- i just -- i'm like -- forget it. i can't go through all those steps just to get a bike. you know what i'm saying? >> jimmy: well, i don't know how to get it. because i thought it was a credit card. then it is a slot like this big. [ talking over each other ] >> jimmy: like a tiny credit card -- [ laughter ] i got to use like a tiny credit card, that comes with like -- like a barbie doll credit card. [ laughter ] like -- i don't know where to get these cards. yeah. some -- keebler elf place that serves that credit card. but anyways, i don't know how to get them. >> my wife took the time and she was patient enough to read the directions and we got two city bikes and then i almost killed myself. >> jimmy: you also went at nighttime. >> we went at night. that's the only time where -- we had time. we had time together. yeah, we saw a movie.
now she is doing some theater. she doing a music theater in d.c. it is an out of town run. a show called "if/then." and then it comes to broadway. >> jimmy: so, you're alone for the kid? >> for now, yeah. i just came back from l.a. we're doing press for "the best man holiday." [ cheers ] >> jimmy: absolutely as celebrities do. >> yeah. the kid comes tomorrow at noon and then i spend the weekend with him. then she comes sunday night. how old? he is 4. he's awesome. >> jimmy: i love 4 years old. he's super cute. >> he's awesome. yeah. he was zombie michael jackson for halloween.

then you get to see kind of a downward spiral. >> jimmy: oh, really? >> yes, sir. >> jimmy: and it's the holiday season. >> we give you some laughs and give you tears as well. be prepared. >> jimmy: that's what i'm talking about. i'm so ready for this. we have a clip of taye in "the best man holiday." take a look at this. >> i just changed my flight. so, i can come with you to mia's. >> oh, great. but what about vermont? >> it looks like the family understands. if it is important to you it is important to me. look, you guys want me to wait outside? >> shut up, harper. >> don't worry about it, i've got to get out of here anyways. i will talk to you later. >> bye. >> nice to meet you. >> and i guess, see you this weekend? >> i hope so. >> okay. >> like to see you in vermont. >> i hate you so much. >> i like dating chocolate girls.

we're excited to have this hilarious stand-up comedian back on our show. here is his album. you can get it on itunes. it's called "yelled at by a clown." [ light laughter ] that's his dad. his dad is a professional clown and magician. for real. he and i have been performing together this fall on the "clean cut comedy tour." which comes to seattle, l.a. and denver in the upcoming months. it's fun show if you get a chance to see us, come see us. it's a fun, clean show. it's good. but last time he was on our show he did so well nbc signed him for a development for a sitcom. that's pretty cool. [ cheers and applause ] you're gonna love him. we love him. please welcome back a very, very funny man, here's nate bargatze ladies and gentleman. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you. thank you, everybody. that was unbelievable.
i'm onboard with you guys. [ light laughter ] i have been hearing a lot of stories people getting catfished. it makes me nervous because, like, it's probably what happened to me. like -- it will -- it's just going to happen. like you remember that -- manti t'eo story. it was a football player that also believed in the fake girlfriend. like -- i was on his side. i get it. i would fall for that. absolutely. i'm 34. i don't -- i do not sleep with socks on because my dad told me my feet can't breathe. [ light laughter ] i could talk to a fake woman for quite a while. [ laughter ] a long time. i almost joined the army when i was 18. not because of a big dream. just because they called. they were like, "hey. this is the army." i was like, "i'll go." why would you not go? [ laughter ] i also signed up for a jcpenney credit card at 18. [ laughter ] they were like, "do you want a
credit card?" i was like, "yeah. i'm about to go to the army. i guess i could get some stuff." [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] thank you. my mom had to get me out of all of that, by the way. my mom had to call the army and jcpenney in the same day. [ laughter ] and she was like, "he's not doing any of this." he got to the phone quicker than he usually does. [ laughter ] look, i'm not a smart guy. i travel a lot. i go to like all these countries. i can't tell you where i'm at in the world. i just went to honduras. we did a uso tour. we had troops in honduras. that's where it is going down next. [ laughter ] and -- it is. like -- they haven't told america yet but they did run it by me. i had no idea where honduras was. and i went to the airport. i was like, "hey, i'm going to honduras." the guy was like, "all right.
what city?" i was like, "well, i'm just learning right now that's not the name of the city." [ laughter ] just -- wherever. wherever people are going. we landed in honduras. a guy picks us up and then he's driving us to the army base. and on the way there, he was like, "look, there are a couple of things you gotta keep an eye out for. when you go to bed at night, you gotta check your bed for spiders." he's like, "spiders hide in your bed." it is like you are not going to sleep. hope that's cool. [ laughter ] then he goes, "there's a lot of snakes, too. a lot of venomous snakes. what you do, watch out for snakes. but, if you do get bit by a snake the best thing to do is go ahead and catch the snake and then bring it with you to the doctor -- [ light laughter ] so we know like what snake bit you." i was like, "i'm pretty sure that's not kind of what you are supposed to do." [ laughter ] like you want me to catch the snake? i never caught a snake in my life and you want me to get bit and get it together and catch a snake for the first time? [ laughter and applause ]
i was just telling him like, "it's not gonna go to us, dude. he's going to keep biting me. that's all that's going to happen." he was like, "it doesn't matter. you have already been bit." i was like, "do you even know what a snake is? [ light laughter ] because it completely matters. there is a huge difference between one bite and 30 bites which is what we will be at if i try to catch this snake." [ light laughter ] "who told you this? the snake. is that what he told me to tell me all of this?" [ laughter ] whose side are you on? [ applause ] who do you think? but, you know, i don't -- maybe you are supposed to do that. i don't know. there's a lot of stuff i don't know about. science. i don't -- like i don't believe in science. i don't -- i don't understand it. so it is easier not to believe in it as a whole. i think they could be making stuff up, too. i was read being bugs. they said beetles are 320 million years old. i was like, "are they?
or do you know i don't know how to figure that out?" [ laughter ] you could be doing that. you know. you could be -- "why don't you do it?" you're like, "you know, i don't even know how to start to do that." [ laughter ] pluto is not a planet. that's when i checked out of science. that's when i was like, "i'm out." i was like, "you can't do that." you cannot no, no. [ applause ] i was like, "you can't do that. can't jam pluto down my throat my whole life. the second i'm out of school, you're like we were just kidding about pluto." [ laughter ] it affected me. in elementary school, i got a c-minus on a test because i forgot to put pluto. turns out i should have got above an a. that's what i should have got. [ laughter ] i should have been asked to teach the class. thank you, guys, so much.
