tv Late Night With Seth Meyers NBC October 25, 2014 12:36am-1:38am PDT
"ask fred" with fred armisen, featuring the 8g band. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] and now, here he is, seth meyers! ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: good evening, everyone. good evening. i'm seth meyers. this is "late night." how's everybody doing tonight? is everybody good? [ cheers and applause ] that is just great to hear. i'm going to be honest with you, that is great to hear. [ cheers ] let's get started. this is crazy to me. this news is crazy to me. former secret service chief, julia pearson, reportedly said this summer that the agency needed to be more like disney world. [ laughter ] more like disney world in its approach to protecting the president.
that way -- what that means is that way, intruders could still get into the white house but they could never remember where they parked. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] you'd catch them in the parking lot. that's how it works. you get them in the parking lot. [ laughter ] they want it to be more like disney world. i guess they started by giving the fence-jumper a fast pass. he got a fast pass. [ laughter and applause ] i might have said fast past when i said that, which is different. [ laughter ] fast pass is what you want when you go to disney world. don't get the fast past -- because it's not a thing. if you pay for the fass past, you're throwing money away. [ laughter ] listen to this. after a photographer was accused of harassing the royal baby prince george, lawyers for prince william and kate middleton said that their son must be permitted to lead as
ordinary a life as possible. then they added, "now, get away from our castle! get away! lower the drawbridge!" [ laughter and applause ] this is pretty cool. major league baseball has announced that it will begin testing new rules meant to speed up the game. of course, they'll have to change the song. ♪ for it's one two strikes you're out at the old ball game ♪ [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] "get away from our castle!" [ laughter ] this is crazy. north korea has reportedly been digging a tunnel all the way to south korea. and they're making good progress because to dig the hole, they're using the same team that shovels food into kim jong-un's mouth.
[ laughter and applause ] they're using their best shovelers. they're using their very best shovelers. i was surprised to hear this. in a recent statement, vladimir putin said that ukraine has always been and would continue to be the closest sister nation to russia. and sometimes, sisters fight. when one sister steals the other sister's boyfriend, crimea. [ laughter and applause ] it's just a fight. that's all it is. just sisters fighting. [ applause ] there is a new study out and we're huge fans of new studies here at "late night." a new study has found that viagra can cause blindness in 1 in 50 men. which means that for those men, things get even harder. [ laughter and applause ] this is interesting.
according to a new report, nearly 16% of people in the u.s. don't have access to the internet. they're called time warner customers. [ laughter and applause ] i thought this was kind of cool. coke -- coke is launching a new product called coca-cola lite, which they say is a mid-calorie soda between diet coke and coke classic. though drinking it too much could lead to type 1 1/2 diabetes. [ laughter and applause ] so, it could be worse. this is not great. some scary news -- a man is being held in isolation in hawaii under fears that he may have ebola. and of course in hawaii, ebola also means "good-bye." [ laughter and applause ] [ laughter ]
not sure -- not sure what to think about this -- a new policy from the american academy of pediatrics advises using implanted birth control over the pill for teenagers. you know, i had implanted birth control when i was a teen. they were called braces. [ cheers ] and they worked great. they worked great. [ laughter and applause ] any "real housewives" fans here? [ cheers ] i'm so sorry for you. [ laughter ] well, the husband of one of the real housewives of new jersey has been sentenced to 41 months in prison, 41 months in prison. he says he's disappointed in the
judge's decision, but 41 months away from his wife is still better than nothing. [ laughter and applause ] and finally, i could not believe this. air canada is conducting an investigation to find out which of its pilots has been stashing porn in plane cockpits. [ laughter ] though if there's any place that sounds like you should be allowed to hide porn, it's the cockpit. ladies and gentlemen, this is the 8g band! ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: how we doing, 8g band? everybody good over there? you look great, you sound great. it's always such a joy to see you. i had a little bit of disappointment last night. any baseball fans in the house
tonight? do we have any baseball fans? [ cheers ] i am -- i'm a red sox fan. my dad's from pittsburgh, so i'm also a pirates fan. some people would say, "oh, i get it. now, you're a pirates fan because they made playoffs after 20 years of being out of it the last few years. you're a fairweather fan." i definitely am. [ laughter ] but i've really enjoyed these last few years of the pirates being in the playoffs. and they lost last night 8-0 to the giants, so they are out of the playoffs which was sad for me but congratulations to any san francisco giants fans. they certainly deserved it after last night. i was at an event. i couldn't watch the game. i was at an event with my wife. and it was one of those things where i was an awful person at an event who was checking my phone. and i got a text from one of my friends saying the pirates are down 4-0 and right as it happened, i had to take a photo with my wife at this event. [ light laughter ] we saw it today. and she was basically admonishing me for being at this event -- this was my face in the picture. look. [ laughter ]
i'm just very angry that i could not as an adult process the emotion that my baseball team was losing and cover it up for the photo. but anyways, i couldn't. that's just how i am. but i can't wait for next year for both pirates and the red sox. we've got an excellent show for you tonight. she just won an emmy for her stand up special "we are miracles" and now she's hosting "saturday night live" this week. the very funny sarah silverman is here. [ cheers and applause ] also stopping by, the creator and star of the new fox sitcom "mulaney," my good friend john mulaney is here tonight. [ cheers and applause ] it's very, it's very exciting for me. very exciting tonight because both of these guys are very good friends of mine. very good friends of mine. [ cheers and applause ] as you know, fred armisen is still off in portland shooting "portlandia." and we like to keep fred
involved in the show when he's gone. and one thing we've found that fred does really well is he gives good advice because he genuinely cares about people. so, each week, we've been inviting our viewers to ask fred for advice via video with the hashtag #askfredlnsm for a segment we call "ask fred." ♪ ask fred [ cheers ] >> seth: so, this week you asked. fred answered. and here are those results. >> fred: hi, i'm fred. i'm in portland shooting "portlandia." and welcome to another edition of "ask fred." >> hi friend, i'm carlin. my question for you is how do i convince my parents to let me buy a pet mouse and what should i name it? thanks. [ laughter ] >> fred: hey, carlin. that's a good one. you want to convince your parents to buy you a pet mouse. i would do this. i would get the mouse first and then tell them that it's a little robot that you invented and you created. so, they will be so impressed that like, it moves around. you'd be like, "isn't it
lifelike? oh, my god, i can't believe i put this together, this like fake fur that i put on there and those little eyes. i mean, look at this thing." and they'll think you're a genius. [ light laughter ] and as far as a name, therefore you should give it a very robotic name. so lk12.000o5klmoommn2900021. [ laughter ] >> hi, fred. i want to know the best way to let your roommates know that you need a little bit more privacy. [ light laughter ] >> fred: hi, okay. you want to let your roommates know that you need more privacy. and i take it that those are your roommates there. i would say -- fart a lot. [ laughter ] just have a constant -- bubble of fart all around you so it's like a cushion of privacy. this way it's its own message to your roommates that you need that space. >> fred, we're having twins and we've figured out one name but
we can't figure out a second name. can you help? >> fred: congratulations on having twins. that's great. um -- there's a name that i like. and it's up to you to take it, but it's -- lk1005001mmno1.111olm29000102.

let's turn on the gas and light her up. [ cheers ] all right. first up, the secret service. hey, secret service, i think i know what your secret is -- you suck at your jobs. [ laughter ] you're supposed to be taking a bullet for the president, not an ambien. [ laughter ] you had a guy with a knife jump a fence and get into the white house. it's the president's home. it should be harder to get into than arizona state. [ laughter ] hang on a second. i think i'm getting something here. oh, yeah. ya burnt! [ laughter ] u2, you guys are legends but you tried to give away your music for free and people weren't having it. now, you're one step away from being that guy who goes around times square with cds saying, "hey, you like hip-hop?" [ laughter ] why would you give your music away for free? the people old enough to like your music are the only people left who still pay for music, people like me. [ laughter ] so, now if i want to spend money on music, i have to go buy the new ariana grande, which i thought was a coffee.
[ laughter ] u2? no, you burnt. [ applause ] sunflower seeds. okay, let me get this straight. i have to put a dirty shell in my mouth, crack it open, spit it back out, do it 100 more times and i'm still hungry? i'm sorry, am i a macaw? [ laughter ] why am i eating individual seeds? there's a million foods out there that don't need to be orally shucked. you're not a snack. you're a job. so, sunflower seeds, i heard some people like you oven roasted. let's hope they like ya burnt! [ laughter and applause ] geno smith, quarterback for the new york jets, you just lost your third came in a row and then cursed out your own fans. come on, geno. you really think dropping an f-bomb would upset them? they're jets fans. [ audience ohs ] [ laughter ] "[ bleep ] you" is a wedding vow to them. [ laughter ] why don't you focus on getting your team out of the gutter? you're playing so bad even my dog wants michael vick to start. oh! [ audience ohs ] j-e-t-s burnt burnt burnt!
[ applause ] hey, leaves. what's up? [ laughter ] how does it feel that we'll drive three hours out of the city just to watch you die?

[ laughter ] hey, leaves. you're red, you're orange, you're brown and now you're in a bonfire because ya burnt! [ applause ] george clooney, you just got married. congrats i guess? you were the greatest bachelor of all-time and you gave it up for weekend trips to bed, bath and beyond. at least, it was to someone relatively age-appropriate. at 36, your new wife is old enough to be derek jeter's girlfriend's mom. [ audience oohs ] [ laughter ] clooney, you better get back to the e.r. because ya burnt! [ laughter and applause ] and real quick -- hey, bono, i heard you were at the wedding. were you invited or did you just show up like in the iphone 6? u2, ya double burnt! [ laughter and applause ] hey, utah. yeah, you knew i was coming,
utah. [ laughter ] according to a new study, you're the happiest state in the country. so what that study really found out was that most of you have never left utah. did you know there are states out there where you can order a beer without having to order food? also, what's with the shape, utah? you look like a rectangle that got a lobotomy. [ laughter ] i think the only reason you're happy is because you got a contact high from sitting next to colorado. they're just lighting up over there. but you, ya burnt! [ laughter and applause ] west virginia, you were found to be the least happy state in the country. sounds like you could use a break. listen, i know everyone makes fun of you for being a hillbilly backwater where people marry their cousins, but guess what? hillbillies are hilarious. backwaters are beautiful and my cousin is pretty hot. [ laughter ] and that's why, west virginia, you are this week's unburnable. ascend it to the heavens, west virginia. ♪ [ applause ] pumpkins! when god created you, i bet he was like, "you know, i made so many beautiful things, maybe i now i'll make a vegetable that looks like a weird, orange lumpy butt."
[ laughter ] the only thing worse than the outside of a pumpkin is the inside of a pumpkin. there are hardened crime scene investigators who clean up after serial killers for a living and every time they carve a pumpkin, they throw up. pumpkins, you're gross and ya burnt. [ laughter ] animals. all right, animals, what are you doing living in the woods like a bunch of hobos? evolve, get some thumbs, buy some clothes. oh, you're hungry? get a job you bunch of free loaders. and for the love of god, figure out what to do with your poop because i'm tired of being evolved. and not that you understand words, but ya burnt! [ laughter and applause ] kim jong-un, which i believe translates to "fat guy with stupid haircut." [ laughter ] you've been missing for almost a month. did anyone check the husky boys section at jcpenney? [ laughter ] some sources claim you got gout from eating too much cheese. others are saying you broke both of your ankles. did you eat so much cheese that your ankles broke? [ laughter ] you know you're politically unpopular when even your ankles won't support you. ya kim, ya soft, ya burnt! [ laughter and applause ]

[ laughter ] and -- catty corner to the office i was in was ian maxtone graham. >> seth: yes. a famous writer. >> it gave you an idea of how white the staff was. [ laughter ] and i was a peon. he didn't really talk to me. i didn't really talk to him. now we're very friendly. but -- and -- he was very scary. and he had a little refrigerator that always had grape nuts and yogurt. which i would steal when he wasn't around and eat like a starving scavenger. >> seth: right. >> and he had a drawer of like freshly pressed, like, boxer shorts and, like, a drawer of socks. and i don't know what kind of psychopath i was.
but in the middle of the night, i would go in when he wasn't there, i would take them, i would put them on -- [ light laughter ] and i would wear them. and if he found me in the hall way, i just kind of had an attitude like, "say something." [ laughter ] i really, like -- i don't know what i was thinking. he never said anything. probably because he was like, "this person's insane." >> seth: yeah. and he had a pretty good case. [ laughter ] >> he did have a -- i am -- i mean, it's insane. it is insane. and he -- you know, i mean, i say he's white. ian maxtone graham. all the harvard writers there would make fun of ian maxtone graham because he only went to brown. >> seth: oh, wow. so he was like a gutter person then. >> yeah. comedians were like, you know, we were like scrappy people who were like, "you think you're so great because you went to harvard?" you know? and they'd be like, "who are you?" and we'd be like, "oh, did you learn comedy at school? is that what you learned? did you take a comedy class?"
[ laughter ] >> seth: now, they made me repaid you for this kindness by putting you in some pretty rough -- see, because when you started at "snl" you oftentimes -- you think it's a burn like, when you have to be the waiter or you're the person at the table - >> that would be a dream. >> seth: that would be a dream. because you had one of the worst burns ever. >> to give you an idea of how long ago it was, charlton heston was the host. [ laughter ] >> seth: right. so it's not recent. >> may he rest in peace. with like guns loaded. >> seth: yeah. >> and i remember it was my birthday. and you know on your birthday, you get roses from lorne. i knew i'd be like, "lorne, thank you for the roses you sent me for my birthday today." >> seth: sure. >> because you know he has no idea that -- that it even -- [ laughter ] and -- >> seth: i, sarah, would like to thank you for the roses you sent me today. >> i'm a writer on the show, and you sent me wonderful roses, because you remembered it was my birthday.
[ laughter ] so -- of course there was a "planet of the apes" bit. and pretty much if i was on at all, i was like somebody asking like a pretend question from the audience or something. well this day, i -- we had to be "planet of the apes" apes. >> seth: right. [ light laughter ] >> and because i was lowest man on the totem pole, being a woman. [ laughter ] no, being a new person there. a different world now. i had at noon, i had to have a face, a gorilla face, glued onto my face. at noon. for the show at 11:30. >> seth: right. [ laughter ] >> and i had the worst cold of my life. so underneath -- underneath my face is my face. and it's just -- my nose is just running. [ laughter ]
it's just running. and i can't wipe it. and due to that, it made me cry. and then i'm just crying and my nose is running. and there's a face glued to my face. [ laughter ] and so i just -- i shut down. i remember i fell asleep in the writer's room and i had a coat that i brought at -- that had, like, one of those fake fur collars. and i had it and somebody took a polaroid and i wish it was still existed. but, of this just little girl like sleeping in a little fur collar hat with an ape face. [ laughter ] so sad. [ applause ] >> seth: you've had really rough moments with that show. >> yeah. >> seth: and like you can be really sad and costumed at "snl," which is one of my favorite things. people would get a scene cut and they're dressed like spongebob and really sad. that's the best thing about "snl." it's like -- but they're dressed ridiculous. and it's like, "can't believe it's cut!" and you're like, "hey, chill spongebob. it's fine." [ laughter ] you -- when you were there, al franken, now a senator, was there.
and i have heard tell that you stabbed him in the head with a pencil. >> hand me a pencil. >> seth: okay. >> since you have a whole thing of them. >> seth: i can't believe i'm doing that because i'm the only head nearby. >> well, we'll pretend he's here. >> seth: okay. >> i still -- i don't know how to explain this well. but -- al became like a father figure to me. and in writers' room -- in the writers' room, doing rewrites and stuff, i always sat next to him for, you know. and i would always be kind of leaning back in my chair like this, you know. cool kid. and uh -- really cool. [ laughter ] and -- there's like an inner monologue going on. and i don't know if i was thinking in words or pictures. you know how you like, you don't know. but i know that it was a winter so he had a really big jew fro. >> seth: mm-hmm. [ laughter ] >> they grow them for the winter. and i was just kind of like a million miles away, looking at his hair. and then, and, and the whole table just has really sharpened pencils, like super sharp. and i'm like this.
and in my mind i just thought i'm going to like stab this through his hair. [ laughter and applause ] but what everyone saw, because this is what happened -- [ laughter ] was i just went -- [ laughter ] and stabbed him. i stabbed him thus. really hard. because i went -- i was going to go through the hair, in my mind. just went in, in his temple. [ laughter ] and he screamed something like, "why?" >> seth: again, a fair question. >> i would have answered that question but i couldn't because i was laughing so hard -- [ laughter ] --and crying from laughing. which looks even crazier. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> i think. >> seth: wearing another man's boxer shorts and socks.
>> yeah. and i somehow wasn't asked back for the next season. i don't know how it happened. >> seth: one of the craziest things about it, we are from the same tiny town in new hampshire. >> crazy. >> we are from bedford, new hampshire. >> yes. >> seth: and -- >> how's larry? >> seth: larry's very good. larry's my father. you know, who you know which is great. >> i love your mother and i can't think of her name. that's why i didn't say it. >> seth: hillary. >> hillary. you never think of moms named hillary. >> seth: yeah, well, i got one. >> except for hillary clinton i guess. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. but it's so funny because we didn't know each other growing up. but you were so young when you'd gone on "snl" that i knew people who knew you and i always thought, "oh, well, there's not two people from this town. and sandler's from one town over and i just thought, i'm never going to get on the show because it's now going to be three people from this part of new hampshire. >> especially jews from a place where there are no jews. i know you're not really jewish. he isn't really jewish. >> seth: yeah, i'm getting closer every day. yeah, yeah. >> there's a little jewish in there. >> seth: yeah, exactly. >> i don't want to -- >> seth: but, the first time -- [ laughter ] the first time my brother and i met you, we were in l.a.
and you -- we saw you perform. and we're in the parking lot and you came out, and we're saying like, "should we say hello? should we say hello?" and we walked over -- >> you did say hello. >> seth: we did! and you were so nice to us. we said, "we're from, you know, bedford, new hampshire, as well and we're trying to get in comedy." and you were like, "cool. do you want to play wiffleball in the parking lot?" immediately. [ laughter ] >> yeah. >> seth: and you, we walked you to your car and you just had wiffleball stuff in the back. >> and you probably thought i had a whole bunch of friends and were all going to play wiffleball. >> seth: i did. >> it was just me. >> seth: no one else came out so we played wiffleball in the parking lot with you. and i was talking to my brother today. and i was saying, "do you remember this story?" and he goes, "yeah." and my brother said, "my favorite part was at one point we hit a ball, a wiffleball, at some guy's truck. and the guy walked out and said, 'hey, cool it.' and you told him, you told the guy stop being a pussy." [ laughter ] >> i did? [ screams and applause ] for me, like, when a parking lot is empty, when a parking lot is empty, all i can think of, like "oh, we should be playing wiffleball here." like, it's so fun.
>> seth: but you go -- you know, in our business, you're sometimes lucky enough to meet people that you wanted to meet for a long time. i remember my brother and i were driving home and we'd known about you forever. and i was saying like, "i can't believe we met sarah, told her we were from bedford, and instead of us saying, like, 'oh that's so cool. nice to meet you', we played wiffleball, and she called a guy a pussy."
