tv Late Night With Seth Meyers NBC May 3, 2014 12:36am-1:38am PDT
featuring the 8g band. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ and now, here he is, seth meyers. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> seth: good evening! i'm seth meyers. this is "late night." how is everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] are you well? thank you so much for being here. let's open tonight with some happy news. you guys like happy news? [ cheers and applause ] we're going to have some happy news to start us off tonight. chelsea clinton has announced that she is pregnant with her first child. [ cheers and applause ] great news. the baby is expected to crawl after 9 months and run in 2055. [ laughter ] [ applause ] that's expected. that's just what's expected. yesterday as i'm sure you know, was 4/20.
april 20, 4/20. [ cheers ] and this weekend, over 37,000 people went to denver to participate in the fourth annual cannabis cup. [ light laughter ] and they all made memories that would last a few minutes. [ laughter ] [ applause ] for thhe next few minutes. the boston marathon was held today. [ cheers and applause ] this is a very sweet sorry. shortly after completing the marathon, a runner proposed to his girlfriend. he proposed to his girlfriend at the finish line. [ audience aws ] and then and only then did she give him the water bottle. [ laughter ] so it seemed like it might have been -- [ scattered applause ] -- a little bit of a quid pro quo. some basketball news. last week nba commissioner adam silver announced that he wants to raise the league's age
minimum from 19 to 20, while the league's age maximum will continue to be kevin garnett. [ light laughter ] [ applause ] 20 to garnett. i could not believe this, but this is a true story. a california teenager is alive after he ran away from home and flew to hawaii in the wheel well of a plane. or as southwest airlines calls that, business class. [ laughter ] [ applause ] i will say, as someone who has flown in the wheel well -- [ light laughter ] -- they never come by with drinks. [ light laughter ] never. this is a weird little story. a florida man named edward cocaine -- [ light laughter ] a florida man named edward cocaine was arrested this week on a felony drug charge. the arrest was made by officer kevin policeman. [ laughter and applause ]
this is crazy. i don't know if i want to believe this. this is crazy. several iphone users told "the daily mail" last week that they think they have found a photo of the loch ness monster in apple's maps app. [ light laughter ] apple is just happy someone found something -- [ laughter ] -- with their maps app. [ cheers and applause ] loch ness monster, nearest gas station, home address, as long as it's something. [ light laughter ] this is unfortunate. kraft is recalling 96,000 pounds of food because packages supposedly containing ordinary hot dogs were actually filled with cheese dogs. kraft is going ahead with the recall despite zero complaints. [ laughter ] [ applause ] what american would complain about free cheese? [ light laughter ] i think that's in the constitution. you're not to complain about
free cheese. people died -- [ light laughter ] -- so that you wouldn't complain for free cheese. that was why we fought the revolutionary war. this is just nuts. a south carolina man told police he walked into a wal-mart naked because he accidentally smoked meth when he thought he was doing ecstasy. [ light laughter ] to make matters worse, his failed drug test means he'll have to forfeit his best dressed at wal-mart trophy. [ light laughter ] which is heart breaking. [ applause ] that's a heartbreak for that poor naked man at wal-mart. former mtv reality star tila tequila announced via selfie that she's ten weeks pregnant, which is the earliest anyone's life has been ruined by tequila. [ laughter ] [ applause ]
i bet she grows up to be chelsea clinton's baby's running mate. [ laughter ] clinton/tequila. vote clinton/tequila. [ scattered applause ] today is the 25th anniversary of the nintendo game boy. wow, it's hard to believe. [ cheers ] it's hard to believe that my game boy has become a game man. ♪ cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon ♪ [ laughter ] a connecticut senator was nearly hit by a train when he stood too close to the tracks while giving a speech about rail safety. [ light laughter ] after all, why give a speech when you can show a demonstration? [ laughter ] [ applause ] far more effective. far more effective. an alcohol expert -- an alcohol expert for the world health organization is claiming that drinking only becomes harmful
when people consume more than a bottle of wine a day. but good news, here's the good news. they didn't say anything about how many boxes you can drink. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] once it's a box, infinite. and finally, competitive eater matt megatoad stoney set a new world record this week by eating 100 marshmallow peeps in two minutes and 10 seconds. [ audience ohs ] and to find out what happened after, just change the es in peeps to os. [ laughter ] ladies and gentlemen, the 8g band. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> seth: how are we, 8g band? is everybody well?
it's good to see you after a week off. and joining us again, eleanor friedberger. welcome back. >> thanks, seth. thank you. >> seth: and you're here all week. >> all week. >> seth: it's so great to have you here all week. fred is not with us this week. [ audience boos ] i know, i think via e-mail, a very sparsely worded e-mail, he's on some sort of path to enlightenment. so i don't know. [ light laughter ] he'll fill us in on the details when he gets back. but again, it was like i said, very sparsely worded. it was only like three words but he said he's on a path to enlightenment in less than three words. so i drove to new england. today is patriot's day. yeah. [ cheers and applause ] which is a massachusetts holiday, and i grew up in new england and growing up there, i sort of knew, i was slightly aware that patriot's day was commemorating the battles of lexington and concord. but what i really knew from patriot's day was a few things happened. one, the boston red sox would play an 11:00 a.m. home game.
so it was like morning baseball, which is really exciting. and that the boston marathon would be run. well, today, the boston marathon was run. and while i am sad to say that the boston red sox lost 7-6, i am happy to say, and far more importantly, the boston marathon was run without incident today, which of course is incredibly important. [ cheers and applause ] after the events of last year. so we hear at "late night" would just like to congratulate the runners, the organizers, the volunteers and everyone who made today a safe celebration of an incredible city that showed its strength and resiliency last year. so give it up for boston and the boston marathon. [ cheers and applause ] so i was in massachusetts this weekend. i went on vacation with my wife and her family, and we had a great time. i love my wife's family and i know it seems like i'm making a joke when i say that, but i truly -- [ light laughter ] i truly do love them, and i want to say the as much as possible because let's be honest, it's not going to last. [ laughter ] but i love them, it's great. we're all in the honeymoon
period, guys. [ light laughter ] that's why they call it that. so we were at a house near the beach and it's great. i like to be near beach as opposed to next to the beach. i don't love the beach. i know i'm in the minority. it's just given a choice, i would always rather stay inside and read a book. i think that's nicer. and also, there are books about beaches. so if you love it -- [ light laughter ] there's one called "the beach." there's one called "beaches." right there, that's two books. [ light laughter ] that's two right there. my wife is very outdoorsy and so one point her and her mother and her sister decided to go out to the beach with our dog, frisbee. our dog frisbee, seven pound italian greyhound, a perfect dog for manhattan. a less perfect dog for the rest of the world. [ laughter ] and i -- like i'm worried, because i have a seven pound dog, that something terrible is going to happen to it. like we were on the beach once and a woman walked by. i swear to god. we were on the beach with the dog and she walks by and she goes, "you should look out for hawks." [ laughter ] and i said, "why?" and she said, "cause a hawk, hawks will just come and grab a dog like that." [ laughter ] and i wanted to say, "well you
ruined my day." [ laughter ] the rest of my day was just -- [ laughter ] so i always want to have frisbee on a leash. if not a leash, i'd like to have her wrapped in a blanket and clutched to my chest. [ laughter ] i would always like to it look like i was running out of a burning building with frisbee. [ light laughter ] my wife, on the other hand, believes that frisbee is a dog and the dog should live. i should say the dog prefers my wife to me. the dog thinks that i'm just, like, far too overbearing. my wife lets frisbee live, and she wants to live. she's a dog. who wouldn't want to live? every year she spends is like seven years. she has so much -- or a seventh of a year. one of them. [ light laughter ] whichever one of those equations makes living more important. so my wife takes her out to the beach, not on a leash. now here's the thing about frisbee. she hates other dogs. it's not her fault. she's not anti-social. it's just that when other dogs see a seven pound italian greyhound, they think they've seen a squirrel.
[ laughter ] so as opposed to doing the sort of canine dance of sniffing the dog and letting the dog sniff you, they just run at frisbee full speed -- [ light laughter ] -- with the goal of clenching her in their jaws and shaking the life out of her body. [ audience aws ] yeah, exactly. that's why i want her on a leash. [ laughter ] so again, i wasn't there. but supposedly what happened was they're walking on the beach. frisbee's having the time of her life, sniffing dead crabs. she loves dead crabs. the deader a crab, the better for my dog. and all of a sudden, two dogs come bounding over this sand dune. and they couldn't be in a better mood because they've just seen a beach squirrel. [ laughter ] so, one of the rarest creatures on god's green earth. so they take off after frisbee. now frisbee runs as fast as she can. and i will say she's a greyhound. she's very fast. need i remind you, greyhounds are so fast, they named a bus after them. [ laughter ] they're bus fast. but because there were two dogs, frisbee was a little outmaneuvered. the dogs were sort of
surrounding her, so she made a decision. and i should say the only thing that i believe my dog to like less than other dogs would be ocean. but frisbee did a quick recalculation and realized the ocean was her best way to get out of the path of these dogs. so frisbee ran into the ocean and started to swim as fast as she could. now again, she's not as fast a swimmer as a runner. there aren't greyhound boats. [ laughter ] there's a reason for that. and the other dog, frisbee probably thought, "oh, well no one would follow me into the ocean. the ocean is the worst place on earth." to other dogs, the ocean is great. that's probably why those dogs were there in the first place. so they jumped in after her at which point my wife, god love her, fully clothed, it's april, it's the atlantic ocean, ran into the water. [ audience aws ] yeah, heroic. [ applause ] ran into the ocean and grabbed frisbee and brought her home. now here's the thing. my wife did not want to admit that this all happened because again, we gave her a round of applause.
she wouldn't have had to run into the ocean if the dog had been on a leash. [ laughter ] we'll leave that out. because when superman saves the day, it's not because he screwed something up early. [ laughter ] but she comes home and she walks in soaking wet from the waist down carrying a freezing dog, and walks in. i go, "what happened?" and here's what she said. she goes, "someone decided to go swimming." [ laughter ] and then left the room. i'm assuming to put frisbee in the dryer. [ light laughter ] but here's the thing. someone that is like freezing leaves out like every detail that mattered in that story. then her sister and her mom came in, and i asked them what happened with frisbee and they said, "what did alexi tell you?" [ light laughter ] which is a good way of saying, what alexi told you was not the full truth. [ laughter ] and here's what worked out in my favor is i actually thought something worse happened. i assumed my wife had taken the dog and like put her on a rock in the ocean to get like an awesome instagram picture --
[ laughter ] -- and the dog had like fallen into the ocean. so that's what i accused her of. i'm like, "did you take an instagrapicture on a rock?" she's like, "no. that's not what happened. she was chased by two dogs into the ocean." but my wife saved her. so i'm so thankful for that and my wife is very brave and outdoorsy and i'm thankful for that. [ applause ] but again, if there are any kids watching, and if there's any message i can impart on you, nothing good happens at the beach. [ laughter ] you don't have to go there. you can just sit at home. and like i say, there's a book called "the beach." there's a book called "beaches." and if you don't like to read or know how to read, they're both movies. [ laughter ] we've got a great show for you tonight. [ cheers and applause ] senator john mccain is here. i'm so honored that he's joining us tonight. also joining us, from "billy on the street," billy eichner. [ cheers and applause ] and music from jason derulo. now, it is our first monday back from hiatus, and we thought we'd start off the week on a positive note.
and in "late night" we believe no matter how different two things are, they can still have common ground. and to prove it, it's time once again for venn diagrams. ♪ >> seth: you all remember venn diagrams. we take two seemingly separate groups and find out what they have in common. easter was yesterday. so on one side we have chocolate easter bunnies. and on the other we have real housewives. [ light laughter ] and in the middle, we have things that are empty inside. [ laughter ] [ applause ] the housewives, interesting fact. the housewives they are hollow like easter bunnies but painted like easter eggs. [ laughter ] up next, on one side we have your friend who can burp the alphabet. on the other side, we have liam neeson. and in the middle we have men with a very particular set of skills. [ light laughter ] [ applause ] although i doubt burping the
alphabet will help you get your daughter back. very important to point out. so last week "mad men" -- we love "mad men." "mad men" returned for the first half of its final season. they are splitting up the last season into two halves. so on one side we have the second half of the final season of "mad men." on the other, we have catholic girls. and in the middle we have, you have to wait before you get to see it all. if you've ever seen "mad men", you know you're eventually gonna get to see it. [ laughter and applause ] moving on, on one side we have things that are true about president obama's approval ratings. on the other side we have things that are true about a drunk girl's cell phone. not sure what's in the middle. we have they're in the toilet. [ laughter ] even worse. [ scattered applause ] that is the fourth time it's happened to becky's phone this month. [ light laughter ] becky, you have a problem. [ light laughter ] up next, on one side, we have beyonce. on the other side we have pants. and in the middle we have, oh,
looks like they're running away from each other. [ laughter ] beyonce wants no part of pants and pants wants no part of beyonce. i, for one, am happy about that. moving on. on one side we have, things you say if you're married. on the other side we have, things you say if you work at burger king. [ light laughter ] and in the middle we have -- have it your way. [ laughter ] yeah. and finally on one side we have, things that are true about mickey rourke's face. [ audience ohs ] [ laughter ] going to be honest, based on the early feedback, he might not love this one. [ laughter ] on one side we have, things that are true about mickey rourke's face. on the other side we have, things that true about arby's roast beef. [ audience ohs ] i'm not sure what's in the middle. let's see. only 10% real meat. [ applause ] that's venn diagrams. we'll be right back with senator john mccain. [ cheers and applause ] ♪

[ laughter ] you were such -- so game. and you did a sketch where you sang the songs of barbra streisand. do you remember this now?

[ laughter ] >> especially on the left. >> seth: yeah, yeah. >> she's not exactly a fan of -- >> seth: she's not a fan. but i thought this was a very good-natured way of approaching it. here's a clip of you doing the songs of barbara streisand.

[ cheers and applause ] >> forever. >> seth: did you know right away that she looked like tina or was it a thing you realized later? >> that's why i selected her. [ laughter ] >> it was pretty -- >> seth: and, you know, she was a great sport. sarah palin came on our show, played along. and then -- and this was one of my favorite moments in my time at the show. three days before the election, we write a sketch about you
going on qvc trying to raise more campaign money. and you did a sketch with tina fey playing sarah palin. the two of you performed together. what -- when you were making that decision to come on three days before the election, was that a hard decision? was that an easy decision? >> no. look, if you're gonna -- the perks of campaigns is reaching people. what better way to reach particularly young voters than to be on "saturday night live"? just like being on this show. i don't think a lot of old geezers like me are watching, right? [ cheers and applause ] so, it's a way -- the hardest thing, i think, for a politician today, very honestly, is staying in touch with younger people and their hopes and dreams and their aspirations and what they're doing. and what their apps are and what their -- all this social networking was the major reason why president obama was reelected in 2012. >> seth: mm-hmm. >> they did a tremendous job with using all aspects of social networking, and it's amazing. and, my friends, it's working in

[ laughter ] >> seth: exactly. >> i had to cross the street! >> seth: we had to cross the street. and do you remember the worst part? do you remember when he brought his dog back over? >> then his dog came and he ruined our next shot. and the dog, like pooped in the
shot. >> seth: yeah. he very calmly stood there looking at us while his dog like pooped in the shot. it was really rough. now, for anyone who is unenlightened, and obviously this is a very intelligent group of people, what -- how would you describe your show to those who haven't seen it? >> "billy on the street" is like "cash cab" on cocaine, basically. [ laughter ] >> seth: yes. >> it's like, i hit the streets of new york, totally unscripted. i ambush new yorkers with various subjective and factual pop culture questions. >> seth: yes. >> and if they agree with my opinion, they win a dollar. or if i like them, they win. if i don't like them i take the money away, as you saw. you never know what's gonna happen. >> seth: um and you -- i feel like there are a lot crazy people running around and screaming at you in new york city. you were the one person who turned it into an industry. >> right, well, usually the crazy people are homeless and begging you for money. i'm crazy, but i'm giving you money. >> seth: yeah, there you go. >> so that's a nice twist. >> seth: you turned it on its head. >> yeah. >> seth: now, i'm sorry to bring up "cash cab."

i was like a struggling comedian doing live shows in new york, and doing these videos and putting them on youtube and thinking, "no one knows me. no one likes this." and then years later, i found out people like you and amy and paul rudd were watching my videos, and i didn't know until years later. so, you never know who's watching. and i am so angry now, because i was like depressed and starving for ten years. and friggin' amy poehler took five years to pick up a phone. [ laughter and applause ] i had no health insurance! >> seth: so you had -- we're right down the hall from snl. you had a brush with snl when you were very -- when you were a young man. >> yes. i emphasize a brush! >> seth: tell us about this brush. >> this is an amazing story, actually. i've never told on it tv. i'm so excited. i was a child actor in new york and i was a really fat, obese, gay jewish kid. [ cheers and applause ] really fat, okay? and i got a call from my manager. i didn't work much. you know, too fat. >> seth: right. [ laughter ]
>> so, it wasn't pretty. i didn't work much. so, my manager calls me. an amazing opportunity. you don't even have to audition. they want you to play a john goodman's son in a sketch on "saturday night live." and, by the way, as excited as i was, what every insecure 12-year-old wants to hear is that you look exactly like john goodman. [ laughter and applause ] okay? >> seth: he's a young john goodman. >> a young john goodman sounds pretty hot to me, seth. all the young gay guys want a young john goodman type. but i was excited. and i came to do "saturday night live" thinking i would play john goodman's son in a sketch and i did, but it turned out there were 30 of us. 'cause they need 30 little fat kids who looked like john goodman. and although i was fat, i wasn't fat enough to be put in the front of the sketch. >> seth: that's heart breaking. >> it was heart breaking. >> seth: you think you're losing weight to get closer to showbiz and you should have been putting on a couple -- >> i wasn't fat enough, seth! when do you hear that? and, so, i was in the sketch but
they stuck me on the staircase in the back of the sketch. and here's the thing -- >> seth: here we go. >> here i am, that's me when i was 12-years-old. >> seth: there we go. >> i'm in the -- [ laughter ] >> no, but hold on. wait. you see how fat the kids are in front? and i'm not that fat. look. there's chris farley, may he rest in peace, john goodman. i wasn't fat enough, so they stuck me on the stairs, but i could see -- i could see through the, what do you call it? the monitor. >> seth: yeah. >> that i wasn't really fully in the frame so i'm bending down so that i get on camera. >> seth: yeah, for your star time. >> look how fat this kid is.
