[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> announcer: from 30 rockefeller plaza in new york, it's "late night with seth meyers." tonight -- mike myers, star of "glow" actress alison brie, music from kacey musgraves, featuring the 8g band with fred armisen. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, seth meyers. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: good evening. i'm seth meyers! this is "late night." how's everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] in that case, let's get to the news. before we start our monologue, the news this week, incredibly depressing. so just for us tonight, in the monologue, we're not going to mention the president. we're not even going to say his name. we're just going to talk about other things. then we'll do "a closer look,"
where we'll just unload. [ laughter ] so here we go! no trump monologue. billy joel will host the re-election fundra f new york governor andrew cuomo next month, with tickets starting at $5,000. that's ridiculous. if you want to spend $5,000 to see billy joel, just pay his bail after a dui. [ laughter ] [ applause ] look, when you -- when you can't make jokes about trump, sometimes you've got to go back like 12 years. [ laughter ] tomorrow is prince william's birthday. he'll celebrate the same way he always does, in a hat. [ laughter ] a film critic at "the new yorker" is attracting criticism online for publishing a review of pixar's "the incredibles 2" that sexualizes the main character, elastigirl.
also, "toy story" gave him a woody. [ light laughter ] [ applause ] according to a new report, legal marijuana sales in colorado have seen a plateau in growth. apparently people are still going to the marijuana stores, but they can't remember why they went in. [ light laughter ] "yeah, hey, do you have, um" -- [ laughter ] "what's the word, um" -- [ laughter ] "doritos." [ laughter ] a new study has determined that dogs are smarter than cats. counterpoint -- [ laughter ] a large group of teens was seen on the new york subway yesterday smoking a hookah inside a train car. said the other riders, "hey, come on! we're trying to masturbate!"
[ laughter ] new york's state assembly is considering a new bill that would legalize alcoholic ice cream. "that's great news," said a 5-year-old having a rough day. [ laughter ] just a little something to take the edge off, ma. [ light laughter ] authorities in florida are searching for two men who left an injured alligator at a convenience store. said the alligator, "no, no, it's cool. they said they'd see me later." [ laughter ] [ applause ] that joke was written by that 5-year-old after he had a couple of scoops of the booze ice cream. and finally, burger king russia has apologized for offering a lifetime supply of whoppers to any russian woman who could get pregnant with the child of a world cup player.ays,e does not
for spain. [ laughter ] ladies and gentlemen, we have a fantastic show for you tonight! [ cheers and applause ] he is returning as tommy maitland, host of "the gong show" on abc. the one, the only mike myers is here tonight. [ cheers and applause ] she is the star of "glow" on netflix. the wonderful alison brie is back tonight. [ cheers and applause ] and we have music from one of our favorites, kacey musgraves, who is doing a song off her fantastic new album. [ cheers and applause ] so, a little update on my 2-year-old. potty training right now. for those of you who have ever gone through it. yeah, he's doing it. it's not easy. [ scattered applause ] it's not easy for him. but that potty training means a lot of time of -- you just put him on the potty, and hope he does his thing. and you try to keep him engaged, so he doesn't get up and walk away. and so during the day, sometimes, my wife will just facetime me, and give him the
phone so i'll be talking to him while he's there. and i don't want to brag, but it's worked pretty well. [ laughter ] something about this face really loosens up the bladder for some reason. but she called me the other day, i was not available. and then she sent me this picture of what she did instead. and i've got to be honest, it's one of my favorite pictures in the world right now. look at that guy. [ laughter ] just -- [ applause ] just reading -- reading a tv guide from three years ago. all right, moving on, everybody. donald trump has always been a shameless liar. but he's taken it to a new level this week with his administration's defenses of his cruel family separation policy. for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: trump's only political skill is his total and cet
his malignant narcissism allows him to confidently and brazenly lie in a way that most other politicians would be too embarrassed to even try. like earlier this week, when he claimed he had cut more regulations than any previous president in history, including fictional ones. >> we've set the all-time record in history of this country in cutting regulation. we've cut more regulations than any administration, whether it's four years, eight years, or 16 years in one case. >> seth: no. [ laughter ] in no cases. [ laughter ] unless he's talking about himself, because it definitely feels like he's been president for 16 years. [ scattered applause ] trump might -- trump might be thinking of fdr, who was elected to a fourth term, but he only served 12 years. of course, to know that, you'd have to be some kind of history buff. or you know, in seventh grade. [ laughter ] this is what trump does. he just confidently tellveatt's obvious he's lying. "in one case, e, 1e 2 when columbus sailed to all the way
to india with his best friend albert einstein." [ light laughter ] "and let me -- they had so much fun on that boat. so much -- that's where they came up with e equals mc hammer." [ laughter ] and then -- [ applause ] then there was trump's announcement on monday that he had directed the pentagon to create a sixth branch of the military focused on space. trump doesn't actually know anything about space, or space policy, so he can't actually explain why he thinks a pointless and expensive space force is necessary. instead, he just says stuff like this. >> you will go out there, and you will take that frontier -- which is largely unknown by man or woman. [ light laughter ] and you will learn everything there is to know about it. and what you're doing is so important. remember, economically, mi like space.
[ laughter ] >> seth: he sounds like an actor playing captain kirk in a dinner theatre production of "star trek" who forgot all his lines. [ light laughter ] he's even got vanilla spock right next to him. [ laughter and applause ] and not only -- [ cheers and applause ] you know -- and not only does trump confidently and brazenly lie, but he also insists that the people who believe and repeat his lies are the smart ones. as he did during his interview last week with state tv outlet, "fox & friends." >> i have the greatest supporters in the world. by the way, they're the smartest. we have the great brain power right in this country, i'm proud to say. and you're certainly a member of that group. >> seth: no. [ laughter ] seriously, you think steve doocy has brain power? the guy who lost his [ bleep ] when you complimented him on-air? >> "fox & friends" in the morning.
they're very honorable people. >> wow! what do you think about that? [ laughter ] >> seth: he sounds like -- [ applause ] he sounds like the mushrooms just kicked in. [ light laughter ] "wow! a purple demon just told me how i die. what do you think of that?" [ laughter ] trump also loves to insist, in the face of indisputable evidence to the contrary, that his lies are always proven right. yesterday, for elicixample, tru foundational lie of his campaign, that mexico is not sending their finest. insisting that he was 100% right. obviously, he wasn't. but this lie is central to trump's world view and it's a through line we've seen throughout his presidency, up to and including his policy of family separation.
trump wants to link immigrants to crime, even if he has to make stuff up to do it. for example, germany has had an influx of refugees. and yet crime is at its lowest rate since 1992. but trump wants you to believe that immigration leads to more crime so he says stuff like this. >> germany. we talk about germany. they allowed millions of people . and by the way, their crime from the time they started, is up more than 10%. and that's one of the reasons it's at that level is because they don't like reporting that kind of crime. so they put it down as different kind of crime. but their crime is up more than 10% since they've started taking 'em in. >> seth: hey, man, you can't just make up statistics like of that. that's like me saying, did you know that 10% of people who work in the trump administration are draculas? [ light laughter ] which is clearly a lie, because it's at least 30%. [ laughter ] and trump's shamelessness -- his shameless lying is not unique to him. we saw that with his cruel policy of tearing children away from their parents at the border.
in defending the policy this week, kirstjen nielsen, trump's homeland security secretary tweeted, "we do not have a policy of separating families at the border. period." now one way you know someone is full of [ bleep ] is when they have to say the punctuation at the end of their sentence. [ light laughter ] like this guy did. >> this was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period! >> seth: and i am not screaming exclamation point! [ laughter ] and when -- when they were insisting the policy didn't exist, they were insisting congress -- congress had to fix it. >> congress and the courts created this problem, and congress alone can fix it. >> the democrats have to change their law. that's their law. >> it's congress' job to change the law. we're calling on them to do exactly that. >> seth: okay. there you go. congress alone can fix it. and trump can't do it by himself. i understand. >> president trump abruptly reversing course today, signing an executive order to end the separation of families on the border. >> we're signing an executive order. we're keeping families together,
and this will solve that problem. >> seth: let's be clear about one thing. you don't get credit for solving a problem when you're the one who created the problem. you can't eat -- [ cheers and applause ] you can't eat half a cheeseburger, put it down, and say you're a vegan. [ light laughter ] especially when everyone knows you're just waiting for people to stop paying attention so you can finish your cheeseburger. now whether it's the birther lie, or the mexicans are rapists lie, or the idea that democrats are responsible for separating families, trump's paranoid fantasies are a rosetta stone for understanding what's happening right now. just look at fox news, which has spent the past week lying about the policy, and trying to make you believe that what you're seeing with your own eyes isn't actually real. >> since more illegal immigrants are rushing the border, more kids are being separated from their parents. and temporarily housed in what are essentially summer cramp -- camps. >> these kids are being coached. >> i'm so sorry, we have to go.
>> they're given scripts to read by liberals. >> i know -- >> according to "the new yorker." don't fall for the actor children. >> we got from the border patrol some of the images inside the detention facilities. some refer to these as cages, and i can understand that point of view. look, i'm from a farm community. to me, i see the chain link fences. it's more like a security pen to me. >> seth: oh, a security pen. that's way better. look, let's be clear about something. if you rip a child away from its parents, and you put that child in a suite at the ritz, you're still a [ bleep ] monster. when someone's that stupid -- [ cheers and applause ] when someone's that stupid, there is really only one thing you can say to them. >> wow. [ laughter ] >> seth: also i should note that "new yorker" article you heard ann coulter cite to support her insane claim that child actors are using scripts at the border contains no such claim. in fact, the author of that piece, said of coulter, "either she lied or she's truly illiterate. i don't know if she knows how to read, but she clearly hasn't
read my 'new yorker' article." [ laughter ] oh, that's ridiculous. of course ann coulter knows how to read. she communicates with her dark lord every night, by reading a ouija board. [ laughter ] the through line of trump's political career is blindingly clear. he concocts racist lies, uses dehumanizing language to justify cruelty towards immigrants and outsiders. it wasn't an accident, it wasn't a law. it was a choice by trump and his supporters. and lest you have any doubt at allabout how the people who support this policy really feel, here is corey lewandowski, trump's former campaign manager, on fox news last night. >> i read today about a 10 year old girl with down syndrome, who was taken from her mother, and put in a cage. >> womp womp. >> i read about -- did you just say womp womp to a 10 year old with down syndrome being taken from her mother? >> what i said is you can pick anything you want -- >> how dare you! >> but the bottom line is very clear -- >> how dare you? >> seth: man, i thought when you showed a dick on tv, you had to blur it. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] you know, something you hear a
lot on days like today, or days like yesterday is, this is not who we are. but it is who we are right now. it might change tomorrow, or the day after that. but today we are this, and you personally not bthis, but who we are is too often decided by those in power. which is why you vote. so remember, if you want who we are to match with who you are, you have to get up early, and vote next chance you have. this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] we'll be right back with our friend mike myers, everybody!

♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: welcome back, everybody. please give it up for the 8g band right over there. [ cheers and applause ] also, so excited this week that our band leader, fred armisen, is back with the 8g band. [ cheers and applause ] >> fred: thank you. >> seth: and i'm always so excited to talk to you fred. mostly just to catch up on all the projects you've been working on since you've been away from us. you're so busy. >> fred: very busy, yes. >> seth: and you were lamenting to me the other day that while everyone else is out doing their summer reading and bringing books to the beach, you don't have time for that. >> fred: i just never have time to read. nothing. >> seth: but then you also
said -- and i found this a little strange. that's okay, because you can tell everything about a book, including the entire plot and all the characters, just by looking at the cover. >> fred: that's exactly what i said to you. yes. [ light laughter ] >> seth: and i will admit that i find that a little hard to believe. >> fred: why? [ light laughter ] >> seth: well, books -- some books are 500, 600 pages. and it seems like one image would not be enough to give you every twist and turn in the plot of a novel. >> fred: i don't think that's true. i don't agree. >> seth: okay. [ laughter ] well, i guess it's time to test that in a new segment, "fred judg" -- "fred judges a book by its cover." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: all right. are you ready, fred? are you ready to look at a cover? >> fred: allet. >>h:iss a book. th fred, you've looked at the cover. what is this book about? >>red: so this is a novel. [ laughter ] as it says there. >> seth: yeah. >> fred: and it's a gentleman in moscow. >> seth: uh-huh. >> fred: and, of course, amor towles wrote it.
and, um -- it's, you know, about the rules of civility. [ light laughter ] so it's -- this is -- it's a kind of, um -- it's a heart warming -- the plot is -- it's a sort of -- it's a mystery. [ light laughter ] and it's a heart warming mystery. and what happens -- >> seth: a heart warming mystery about the rules of civility. >> fred: yes. [ light laughter ] >> seth: okay. >> fred: and so, it's this hotel in mosw. [ laughter ] and some of the rooms are very expensive and some are very cheap. so this one guy comes in and he's like, "i don't want to spend too much, but i still want a room where, you know, it has a bed and a bathroom and stuff." and so the owner is like, "i've got something for you. the only thing is, you can't turn around once you're in there. [ laughter ] can't turn around." he's like, "what's tif i can doha >> seth: oh, so there's space to turn around. the owner of the hotel just doesn't want him to turn around. >> fred: exactly. >> seth: okay. >> fred: so he brings him up to this, sort of, second floor. >> seth: how many pages into the novel would you say we're at? >> fred: this is about halfway
through. >> seth: okay, good. [ laughter ] >> fred: it's because of the language. the language is beautiful. >> seth: okay. [ laughter ] >> fred: it's just wonderful language. it's words playing into each other. just really wonderful. >> seth: no, i think we all get it, based on what you've been doing with your hands. >> fred: yes. [ light laughter ] so they bring them up to this room. and he's like, "okay, great." and, so, like, the bellman pushes him, like, right up to the balcony. and he's like -- [ light laughter ] >> seth: oh, so that's -- maybe that's it. this moment here? >> fred: yeah, he's like, "look at that view. isn't that great? don't turn around." [ laughter ] "do not turn around. but this is your room." and then he just leaves. and the rest of the book is him just looking out the window and enjoying the view. [ laughter ] seth: that's fanta. >> fred: yes. >> seth: now i will say that according to the book itself, this says in 1922 count alexander rostov is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a bolshevik tribunal and is sentenced to house arrest in the metropol, a grand hotel. [ bleep ] [ laughter ] >> fred: yeah, yeah. >> seth: acrosthe street from
the kremlin. unexpectedly, his reduced circumstances provide him entry into a much larger world of emotional discovery. which might be that looking part. [ laughter ] >> fred: that's exactly right. it's a novel. >> seth: you know what, fred? i think you've done it again. [ laughter ] give it up for fred armisen, everybody. [ cheers and applause ] you know our first guest tonight from his work on "saturday night live" and iconic films such as "austin powers", "shrek", and "wayne's world", he is returning to "the gong show" for its second season as host tommy maitland, which premieres tomorrow night on abc. let's take a look. ♪ >> oh! oh! oh, my god. i must say it must be tough juggling a family while juggling your family.

[ light laughter ] >> seth: it was a pretty tense first england game. i mean, they pulled it out, but it was maybe a little closer than you would want it to be. >> yeah, i'm trying to wean off of it.
i get too -- like, when liverpool got knocked out of the -- i'm a liverpool fan as well. anybody? [ scattered cheers ] i'll take a sympathy "woo."

undefended border in the world. and we have the longest peace treaties in the world. >> seth: yeah. the e two good things to have. >> we're your number one trading partner. on september 14th, canadian special forces were in the ground in afghanistan. we did not get attacked ourselves, but we love america so much that over 40,000 canadians served in afghanistan. so these are just little facts i'd like to point out. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: good hometown facts. >> not the stuff of security threat, i think you'll find. >> seth: yeah, no. >> but anyways, there, i said it.

[ light laughter ] because i thought "the gong show" was super punk rock. because it was, you know, kind of, get in and get out, and somebody gets hurt. [ light laughter ] it was just a real -- just a de-evolution of show business.
it's anti-careerism. it's people flying their freak flag. you know? and it's what i did with my brothers in kitchens at parties to try and make girls laugh, you know what i mean? >> seth: are you surprised at who does and doesn't get gonged? >> i'm totally surprised. but just getting back to why i wanted to be tommy was that chuck barris was my hero. i read all of his books. and he kept maintaining, i don't know if it's a fiction or not, that he was in the cia. and i just thought that in the spirit of that, what if we just pretended that i was this guy, tommy maitland. give an elaborate back story. and just, you know, it was the sort of guy that if something -- if somebody is terrible on the show, he'll go, "i thought you were breath taking." >> seth: yeah. [ light laughter ] >> "you've taken away my breath and i will need it back."

they do, they will enjoy it a great deal. >> well, i thought i should tell them what dada does for a living. >> seth: yeah. >> i had seen -- not in terms of scale. but i had seen dhani harrison talking about his dad, george harrison. that he went to school, and for the longest time he didn't know that his dad was in the beatles. and so people would go, "your dad is a beatle." and he would go, "shut up!" [ light laughter ] and then he came home and said to george harrison, "are you a beatle?" and he goes, "yeah, i am, actually." [ light laughter ] i go, "why didn't you tell him?" he goes, "i suppose i should have, really." [ laughter ] and i thought, well, i'll tell them. i'm not -- a beatle. but, you know, i make stuff.>> . >> and so, i told him and we let him watch it and all of it went over his head. but he loved it. which i was thrilled. in fact, we give him an allowance and he has like saving, donating, and spending. and he saved up for the longest time and he bought an "austin powers" costume. [ light laughter ] and he does it all the time.
and i was like, "you know, is this weird?" he goes, "no, no, i think it's great." and then, we were somewhere, and it was raining and we were under a blanket. and he said, "dada, can i tell you a secret?" and i said, "sure, spike, what?" and he goes, "i'm your number one fan."

[ laughter ] she thought that i was giving up acting -- [ light laughter ] to be a professional wrestler. and the kicker is, she was incredibly supportive. >> seth: that really -- [ laughter ] >> she was so happy for me. >> seth: that is the take-away here. is that your mom might not be totally dialed in about how show business works. >> yes. >> seth: but, so much better, she's a great mom. >> loves me no matter what. >> seth: yeah, that's a really -- >> yeah, it's good. >> seth: that's great to know. so -- but the -- the interesting thing is, you, of course, you actually did have to do some degree of wrestling training. >> oh, absolutely. >> seth: and -- your husband, dave franco, was here. and he was saying that you were in the best shape your life. >> still am. >> seth: yeah.

same time you were getting in "glow" shape, he was playing a heroin addict in a movie. [ light laughter ] >> yes. he is in a film called "six balloons" that's on netflix now, in which he plays a heroin addict. and, so, for the first season of "glow," it was the first time i was really leaning into strength training. and i was, like, eating a lot of protein. i was just, like, always eating and really trying to, you know, be strong and buff. and he was wasting away. [ light laughter ] he was literally starving. he lost 25 pounds to do the part. >> seth: ugh. >> and he was in, like, pretty good shape already. and he was just a bummer to be around. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> it was like -- he was depressed. aasut heroin. and it just got to a point where -- [ light laughter ]kends, he'd be like, "should we -- do you want to go get some coffee?"

>> seth: very early on. >> very, too, early on. >> seth: too early on for a surprise party. >> we had known each other for three or four months, and then, it was his birthday. and i wanted to do something special for him. i just think i was just so smitten immediately. and, you know. but we still didn't know a ton about each other. so i did not know that he hates surprises. [ laughter ] or attention of any kind. >> seth: okay, interesting. [ light laughter ] >> and i also didn't really know that many of his friends yet. so i just asked, like, the two friends i knew, "who should i vote invite to this party?" and mentally, i think i was planning at like, in my mind, like, a 20-person dinner party. >> seth: right. >> it turned into, sort of a >> seth: oh. >> rager at my house. costume party. >> seth: so, it really got away from you. >> i leaned into it. >> seth: yeah. >> i was too nice. people were like, "how many people do you want?" i was like, "whoever you think his greatest friends are." there were people he hadn't seen in five years. his -- his manager's assistant's cousin brought five friends.
>> seth: oh, no. [ light laughter ] >> like, the pro football player across the street came over with his crew of guys. it was out of my hands. the next morning, davey was totally freaked out. >> seth: so, when he walked in, was it just -- did you know from his reaction immediately that you had miscalculated? >> yeah. he, sort of -- [ laughter ] i'm sure we have a video of it. and it was something like -- "oh, god." [ light laughter ] and curled into a l gave him a little pot cookie d was like, "have a great night." that only made it worse. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] here, take some noo help this. the next morning -- like, this is just a sign of how that the next morning, his mom, who was in tn and had invited her to the party, even though we hadn't -- i didn't really know her yet. the next morning, she was at a coffee shop nearby, and a waitress -- some stranger came up to her and was like, "you're dave franco's mom.
god, i almost came to dave's birthday party last night. but i had to work an extra shift." we were like, "who? what?" >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> it was so crazy. >> seth: it was, like -- yeah, it was just, like, like a town fair. >> it really was. >> seth: i want to ask about this. because i'm always fascinated by people's early films. and we know you from a lot of really good work. is this truly your first movie? >> yes. >> seth: your first movie was called "born." >> yes. the premise was that i was impregnated with a demon fetus. >> seth: gotcha. ghurdepeople andtheir body part. >> seth: okay. [ laughter ] >> so it was a great first job out of theatch>> seth: uh-huh. >> the funny thing about this picture is, like -- this is a very low-budget movie. very weird. we actually shot it in, like, downtown l.a. in a swingers club. which if you don't know what that is, it's a place where couples go to have sex with other couples. >> seth: gotcha. >> um, totally romantic. >> seth: was that going on while you were shooting? >> actually, there was some
nights where we shot so late, they would be sneaking us out a side door and you'd see couples in line getting ready to go in. and like, i'm not a judge-y person. but i was just sort of like, "who's coming in this place?" >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> let me get a look at ya. >> seth: yeah. >> but, otherwise, i also was like, "i can't put a bag anywhere." >> seth: right. >> every room had a weird theme. and i was just was like -- >> seth: no thanks. >> ew. >> seth: yeah. >> but the funny thing about this photo is that our -- our special effects guy quit the movie two days int f soteme having gradual stomachs that were growing the way a normal precy >> seth: yeah. >> i just had this stomach the whole movie. [ laughter ] it was like -- i woke up the second day of the movie, and was like, "i'm a virgin. how did this happen?" [ light laughter ] >> seth: that's -- they say that's the telltale sign that it's a demon. >> it -- yeah. >> seth: if you're nine months pregnant on day two, it's totally a demon. >> that's how you know. >> seth: that's how you know. well, i'm glad you've moved on to more -- >> thank you. >> seth: prestige work. >> thank you. >> seth: and thanks for being back. it's always great to see you, alison. >> thank you. >> seth: alison brie, everybody.
