tv Late Night With Seth Meyers NBC January 19, 2016 12:37am-1:37am PST
news. today is martin luther king day, and donald trump saw his shadow this morning, so that means six more weeks of racism. [ laughter ] then we're good. [ light applause ] after that, we're good. last night was the final democratic debate before the iowa caucuses, featuring hillary clinton, bernie sanders, and um -- fitz from scandal, i think? [ laughter ] former maryland governor martin o'malley got less than half the speaking time of either bernie sanders or hillary clinton in last night's democratic debate. and i've got to say, it did seem pretty unfair. >> we'll begin with 45-second opening statements from each candidate, starting with governor martin o'malley. >> thank you. [ dinging ] >> that's fine. we do have to move on. >> seth: that was too short. that wasn't a full 45 seconds. [ laughter ] according to a new report, the most googled question about bernie sanders during last night's democratic debate was, "why is bernie sanders so
though that may have been because one person googled it a bunch of times. [ laughter ] [ applause ] how is this happening? i don't understand. [ applause ] i am not satisfied with this answer. during last night's democratic debate, bernie sanders got the most speaking time, as well as the most speaking volume. [ laughter ] bernie sanders talks like he always has a bad connection. no, i said milk! [ laughter ] i want you to pick up some milk! and break up the big banks! [ laughter ] chris christie said in a new interview that if elected president, he would not let the government influence what is served in school cafeterias. or for that matter, who. [ laughter ] just blending in. south carolina senator lindsay graham on friday endorsed jeb bush for president.
is about as helpful as being backed up in a bar fight by lindsey graham. [ laughter ] i've got your back, jeb. i'm going to smash a beer bottle on somebody's head! [ laughter ] i love a bar fight! executives from chipotle have announced their restaurants will be giving away twice their usual amount of free food, as part of a -- yeah! [ cheers and applause ] yeah, clap it up. clap, clap, good. as part of a promotion to restore the company's image following its e. coli outbreak. [ laughter ] yeah. [ laughter ] ooh. yeah, burrito -- ooh. although i'm not sure it was a good idea to call the promotion free-coli. [ laughter ] there we go. [ applause ] and finally, a canadian man was arrested last week after allegedly trying to sneak into vermont while pulling a sled
xanax. but considering the severity of the charges, he seemed really chill about it. [ laughter ] ladies and gentlemen, we have a great, great show for you tonight! [ cheers and applause ] fresh off moderating last night's debate, he's the host of "nbc nightly news." anchor lester holt joins us tonight. [ cheers and applause ] very excited to talk to him. also, he is a very funny man. a fantastic actor. he's the star of adult swim's "children's hospital," rob corddry joins us this evening. [ cheers and applause ] and we'll have music from the grammy-nominated duo of brothers osborne. just a fantastic group. [ cheers and applause ] looking forward to that. but before we get to all of that, on saturday iran announced that it would release four americans who had been in prison there for years as part of a prisoner swap with the united states. and if you thought this would be an occasion for bipartisan celebration, well, you'd be wrong. for more on this, it's time for "a closer look."
so republicans have been complaining for months that the obama administration wasn't doing enough to secure the release of the prisoners. ted cruz called it a disgrace for this administration to abandon americans, and jeb bush said it was appalling there's been no effort to try to support the americans held hostage by the iranian government. and jeb knows no effort when he sees it, because that's his campaign strategy! [ cheers and applause ] but it's a good question. why hasn't there been more of an effort to get these americans back? >> after more than a year of top-secret negotiations, four americans who spent years held prisoner in iran finally headed back home. >> this prisoner swap is a culmination of 14 months of secret diplomacy. >> this a good day. >> seth: of course, a good day for obama only lasted seven minutes before republicans [ bleep ] all over it. [ laughter ] which they did, because they were outraged obama traded seven iranian prisoners to get the americans back. >> we shouldn't have to swap prisoners. these folks were taken illegally in violation of international law and they should be released
>> this should have happened years ago, george. somebody said they got seven, we give four. you know, in terms of what the deal is. >> every bad actor on earth has been told, go capture an american. you want to get terrorists out of jail, capture an american, and president obama is in the let's make a deal business. >> seth: that's right. every bad actor has been told to capture an american. which explains why when i left my apartment this morning, steven seagal was hiding behind a corner with a net. [ laughter ] [ applause ] i see you, steven seagal! i'm not steven seagal, i'm -- i'm the dog catcher. so republicans slammed obama for the deal, even though none of the iranians released were charged with violent acts or terrorism. but in classic trump fashion, donald wanted credit for the deal he hated. >> i have been going wild for years about the prisoners. i call them the hostages. our four people. so i've been hitting them hard. and i think i might have had something to do with it. >> seth: it's a terrible deal we should be ashamed of, and not to
[ laughter ] so is trump at least willing to share some credit with obama or would he admit that he never thought this would happen. >> you said that was never gonna happen. you blamed obama. ready to give him credit? >> absolutely not. and i never said it was never gonna happen. >> seth: trump never said it was never gonna happen. that's not his style. >> we can talk about the fact that we have four wonderful people over there, and frankly, they're never going to come back with this group. [ laughter ] >> seth: another contradiction from america's favorite contra-dickhead. [ cheers and applause ] so the gop is in agreement. the only acceptable deal is you get the prisoners back without having to give up anything. a negotiating tactic known as give it! just give it to me now! [ laughter ] the toddler's tactic. well, it just so happens the obama administration had another negotiation with iran last week.
ten sailors were detained after entering iranian waters due to what defense secretary ash carter called a, quote, navigational error. should be noted, there was one female sailor on the boat who i'm assuming was the one saying, "just admit we're lost and ask for directions." [ laughter ] either way, no one is disputing that the error was with the u.s. navy. so what do you have to trade for ten sailors, and how long will the they negotiations take? >> ten american sailors held by iran are safe tonight, freed earlier today. quickly sparing another major international crisis. >> the sailors were released less than a day than after they were captured. >> seth: less than a day. so the obama administration basically amazon primed home ten sailors without giving up anything. surely republicans weren't upset with that. well unfortunately, the iranians took a photo of the sailors on their knees and to ted cruz, that photo was an act of war. >> if i am elected president, no serviceman or servicewoman will be forced to be on their knees in any nation that captures our
the full force and fury of the united states of america. >> seth: so the full force and fury because our boats drifted into their waters. see it all in the new vin diesel movie, force and furious eight, iranian drift. [ laughter ] [ applause ] so critics of the obama administration like to frame every concession and any deal as an embarrassment to america. but you want embarrassing, how embarrassing is this for iran? according to "new york times," of the prisoners agreed to in the swap, none of the seven men had chosen to return to iran at this time. we negotiated your release. we can't wait to see you back in iran. um, yeah, we might stay here? if that's cool with you? and when it comes to embarrassment, iran also has to deal with this. it's being reported by the associated press today that two iranian poets who were facing prison sentences and 99 lashings each escaped iran and were safe in an undisclosed country. imagine having to give a press conference admitting the poets
[ laughter ] they overwhelmed us with metaphor. [ laughter ] so this is a good reminder that iran is still a repressive place where hard-liners arrest poets and believe you shouldn't do the rhyme if you can't do the time. [ laughter ] what's that? i'm fired. i agree. [ applause ] which is why -- which is why it's important the u.s. continue to foster relations with the moderate factions. at least dealing with moderates is still an option for us. who knows how long it will be an option for them? this has been "a closer look." [ cheers and applause ] we'll be right back with more "late night!" degree gave women a motion-activated wristband to understand how much they move,... and created degree with motionsense.

[ cheers and applause ] so wonderful having them here each and every night. also, sitting in all week with the great 8g band, he's one of the most recorded drummers in the history of music. josh freese is here this week! [ cheers and applause ] josh has played on over 400 records and been a member of such iconic bands as perfect circle, divo, sting and weezer to name just a few. thank you so much for being here, josh. such an honor to have you. >> good to have him here. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: now, in a game show or
question there is a correct answer. but we here at "late night," we believe that there isn't just one answer to every question. there are other ones that maybe aren't right, but aren't exactly wrong either. and to prove it, it's time for "we also would've accepted." [ cheers and applause ] all right, here's how this works. we ask the question, we give the correct answer, and then we reveal any other answers we also would have accepted. first up, here's a good question. what iconic piece of american real estate is currently on the market for sale to the highest bidder? the correct answer is "the playboy mansion." we also would have accepted the white house. [ laughter ] [ applause ] we also would have accepted the white house. speaking of politics, here's a question about the presidential race. recently there have been rumors that what person may attempt a serious campaign for president. the correct answer is michael bloomberg. we also would have accepted jeb bush. [ laughter ] [ applause ]
still waiting on jeb bush. another interesting question about the 2016 election. according to a new report, millennial voters want what to be the main focus of the 2016 election? the correct answer is clean energy. police reform and gun control. we also would have accepted "whatevs." [ laughter ] [ applause ] we also would have accepted "whatevs." meanwhile, in legal news, a federal court ruled last week that wearing these as a protective form of free speech. the correct answer is unearned military medals. we also would have accepted crocs. [ laughter ] still legal under the constitution to wear crocs. meanwhile, here's an interesting question. according to a new report, january is the busiest time of year for what? the correct answer is online dating. we also would have accepted "actually using your gym membership." [ laughter ] [ applause ] this next one is a -- what i like to call a real puzzler. [ light laughter ] what they put in the script for me to say.
my writers know how i talk. it's a puzzler, you guys. classic seth meyers. [ laughter ] a ft. worth man recently fell into a large construction hole while walking to purchase what? the correct answer is lottery tickets. we also would have accepted glasses! [ light laughter ] [ applause ] show me glasses! in media news here's a puzzler. again? [ laughter ] fox news owner rupert murdoch has announced plans to do what again at age 84? the correct answer is "get married." we also would have accepted shed his exoskeleton. [ laughter ] [ applause ] the external skeleton that protects him like a cicada. here's a story from across the pond. another expression i use, "across the pond." [ light laughter ]
that in there. [ laughter ] a british man has started a petition trying to ban what from movie theaters because he says it takes too much noise during films. the correct answer is popcorn. we also would have accepted kevin hart. [ laughter ] kevin hart. or as the british call him, "a noisy little chap." [ laughter ] and finally, a missouri lawmaker introduced a bill last week that would require lobbyists to report sex with legislators as what? a correct answer is "a gift." [ light laughter ] we also would have accepted "disgusting." [ laughter ] we also would have accepted that. this has been "we also would've accepted." we'll be right back.
ahh... ah. you probably say it a million times a day. ahh... ahh! ahh... ahh! but at cigna, we want to help everyone say it once a year. say "ahh". >>ahh... cigna medical plans cover one hundred percent of your in-network annual checkup. so america, let's go. know. ahh! and take control of your health.
[ cheers and applause ] >> seth: so happy to have you here! >> i am delighted to be here. this is a real thrill for me. >> seth: fresh off the debate. there it was, last night. we've already showed two clips of you in the show tonight. that is big. >> yeah, that was a big deal. >> seth: now do you get nervous before you moderate a debate? >> i actually was, you know? at this point in my career, not a lot of things make me nervous, but that did. it's kind of out of my wheel house. as a journalist, as an anchor, you kind of have a certain amount of control. you're by the desk. you've got, you know, your scripts in front of you. but this, you have your questions, you can prepare only so much. but you're trying to contain three people that want to be president of the united states. >> seth: yeah. >> and they're going to do whatever they can to get across their message, as you and i would, if we were running. >> seth: if we actually thought we would be good at president. [ laughter ] >> there's that. >> seth: there's that. now, i will say the part that
were impressed with that seems to be the hardest moderating debate is keeping people to time and cutting them off. is that nerve-racking, when you are saying one of these three people might be the leader of the free world and i'm just going to tell them, like, "we're done with you right now." [ laughter ] >> the thought went through my mind. you couldn't see on tv, but out of the corner of my eye were lights, and the candidates could see the lights. and it would flash yellow with a warning and then red, and then it would start flashing red. and, you know, i wanted to use a little discretion, which i did. most of them actually went over time. but at some point, you have to call it. at the same time, you're like, "well they really deserve to be able to complete their thought." but sometimes the thought ends up to the next thought and the next thought. so that was tough. i'm not the traffic cop kind of guy. >> seth: at one point you did -- as it went to commercial, martin o'malley was asking for ten more seconds. >> yes. >> seth: and you just cut him off hard. [ laughter ] >> i'm hearing in my ear, "go to a commercial break." and the sad part of it, not only did i cut him off, but i cut him off to promote, "coming up, anger in america." [ laughter ]
good example. now, martin o'malley got less time than the other two candidates. one could argue that based on the polls, that makes sense. is it true that he did approach the table you were moderating from? >> at the commercial breaks -- i didn't know what to expect in the commercial break. a couple times, he walked up. he made no requests. he simply -- he came up one time and said, "how are you doing?" and i'm like, "great, how are you doing?" [ laughter ] and he came up another time and suggested he would have like to have gotten that conversation regarding a question on the heroin epidemic in the united states. but he was very friendly. you know, the candidates kind of during the commercial break, many of them would disappear. >> seth: disappear? just walk off stage? >> yeah, you know, use the restroom or wherever. they would walk off stage. so very often, the stage manager would say, "30 seconds, coming back." and there was no one out there. and i look at andrea like, "is there a plan for this, if nobody comes back?" [ laughter ] >> seth: i think the plan is you say, "i believe that bernie sanders was here." he would --
exactly. >> seth: one of the things now is moderators of debates are in a strange way being reviewed as much as the candidates. were you aware of that going in? >> i was aware of that. at one point, one of my producers came out, and she wrote something on the pad that says, you know, "good twitter stuff." only i didn't bring out a phone or anything and i still have -- >> seth: that's a good call. i think if you were reading tweets about you during the debate -- >> "hang on one second. this is a good one or a bad one." no, but i recognize having watched the debate cycle that the moderators are judged just as much as the candidates are. and that puts a lot of pressure on it as well. what we try to do is just prepare in a way that i wanted to sit there on behalf of the voter. and wanted to shine some light. "what are the real differences between you folks on these issues?" and i think we accomplished that. and that's what i set out to do. i try to stay out of the news as much as i could. >> seth: now, you did a great job, but with all due respect, of the debates we've seen this year, you did the easy one. [ laughter ]
>> seth: yeah. you did the three people who kind of listen to one another and don't scream and yell the whole time. >> there's that. >> seth: because i will say, in defense of the republican candidates, nine or ten is so much harder to get your point across. and i feel like there's a lot more desperation to jump in, to cut people off. hypothetically, would you want to moderate a gop debate? >> i would. i mean, i love the political process. i love all of this stuff. it's noisy and it's messy, but it's what we do in america. and i think it's -- personally, i enjoy it. i would love to be in the seat for a republican debate. >> seth: one of the things that happened last night, hillary clinton seemed to tie herself as often as possible to >> she did. >> seth: were you surprised, or was that something you maybe saw >> no, one of the things in preparing, you know, we look back at what they have been we knew where the points of disagreement were, and we fashioned our questions to try to shine light there.
didn't expect in a big way that she did, in which she kind of aligned herself with the president. i think that's, you know -- i'm not a political analyst, but i think she was trying to put herself in a position where, listen, this is the tried and true course for democrats, and perhaps painting sanders as more risky. that's the only thing i can imagine. but it did come off as a bit of a surprise. >> seth: now, you have obviously been doing this for a very long time. i was in chicago, recently, and stopped by the nbc station over there, and your son -- >> you said hi to stephen? >> seth: yeah, he is the anchor of the nbc morning show there in chicago. >> he is. >> seth: was that something he always wanted to, to follow in your footsteps? >> when i used to do "weekend today," he was in high school, and he would come down to work. "can i come to work with you?" i said, "dude, it's 4:00 in the morning. you're 17. who does that on a saturday?" but he would come down hang around, and then he got into college and ultimately started working at the campus tv station. but he really grabbed on to it. >> seth: now, as a father watching your son doing something, and you also worked in chicago as well, so a lot of similarities. do you find yourself giving him
>> when he first started, i would watch on the sling box, and i would call and say, you know, "you're doing this, you're doing that. you probably should say it this way." basically, i was given him a lesson how to be lester holt. [ laughter ] and i realized early in my career, i didn't like that. because when someone says, "don't do this." >> seth: yeah. >> and you're so conscious, what am i doing with my hands. so we settled into a nice rhythm where i try to give him advice about the business from my years in the business, navigating newsroom issues or, you know, career advice, that sort of thing, in terms of his performance as an anchor and doing his day-to-day job, i stay out of that. >> seth: that's good. >> he's much better than me, anyway. >> seth: that's fantastic. i should point out, my father who never had a talk show, gives me a ton of advice. [ laughter ] >> really? >> seth: yeah. but he's better than me too. very good advice, very good advice over the years. now, this is -- i'm so happy to have you on as a proper guest.
because very early on in our show, you came on, and we filmed something together called "forced friendship." the idea was because i had a new talk show, nbc was forcing me to at the network. and you and i went out -- and i went out and took a carrousel [ laughter ] >> i remember that, over in bryant park. i remember this. >> seth: and the conceit of goofball -- i'll sign that for [ laughter ] and that you were very -- you were very serious news man. obviously, we can see having you here tonight, you're not as serious as we made you to be. but one thing was we had lunch together, and in this you only ate lettuce with nothing else on it. that's true. [ laughter ] you want to correct the record. >> i didn't want to be biased. >> seth: yeah, you didn't want to be biased, so all you eat is undressed lettuce. record. that was hilarious, but i kept thinking, "people are clicking this on, thinking, maybe that's the real me, that i'm really that uptight." no, i'm not. >> seth: okay. >> although i should point out, we never did become friends. >> seth: no. [ laughter and applause ] it did not work out. >> i love and watch your show. >> seth: i think we're a lot closer after this than we were after that. >> i would agree. >> seth: so if anyone is in bryant park if you see us on a now.
>> we're beyond dating. >> seth: great job. great job last night. "nightly." lester holt. [ cheers and applause ] "nightly news" airs weeknights on nbc. we'll be right back with rob corddry. [ cheers and applause ] man, i'm glad aflac pays cash. aflac! isn't major medical enough? no! who's gonna' help cover the holes in their plans? aflac! like rising co-pays and deductibles... aflac! or help pay the mortgage? or child care? aflaaac! and everyday expenses? aflac! learn about one day pay at aflac.com/boat blurlbrlblrlbr!!! here's a little healthy advice. take care of what makes you, you. right down to your skin.
let's take a look. >> you are moaning in your sleep while you are supposed to be performing surgery. >> oh. no! wait a minute, you know what? this is a dream. yeah. someone is going to wake me up in a few seconds. watch this. a couple seconds. nah, it's real. this kid is dead. time of death, 11:20 a.m. >> seth: please welcome to the show, rob corddry. [ cheers and applause ] >> that's some drummin right there. >> seth: that some real drummin today over there. >> that's some drumming! >> seth: that's some drumming. [ cheers and applause ] >> i walked into his dressing room, thinking i was walking into mine, and he's like, drumming on all of this stuff.
[ laughter ] >> seth: did you think all of our dressing rooms had an extra drummer? >> yeah. every dressing room but mine had a drummer in it. >> seth: congratulations. seven years now -- >> thank you. >> seth: seven seasons of "children's hospital." for those uninitiated, this is a parody of all the sort of medical dramas you can see on television. >> it started out that way, but like those shows themselves just recycle their own ideas and each other's ideas. so, you know, that well got pretty shallow after a season or two. >> seth: gotcha. >> so now we're just -- we're meaningless. completely -- basically just like, "well, if we do whatever we want, then we'll never run out of ideas." >> seth: yes, it is a fully insane medical show. i was watching one of the episodes this season. it's the 1,000,000th patient save. >> yeah, 1,000,000 patients saved. >> seth: but they shoot confetti
and kills the patient. >> which, when you're designing a hospital, seems stupid to put confetti up above the open cavity. >> seth: but you also would be excited to save a million people. >> you're gonna want some kind of fan fair. >> seth: right. now, throughout the course of the show, you have always had great guest stars. one of them, jon hamm. jon hamm plays a character named derek childrens. explain that real quick. >> derek childrens, he's the illegitimate son of the hospital's founder, mr. childrens. [ laughter ] >> seth: you would assume a children's hospital because it's a hospital for children, but no. >> it may or may not be. i don't know. [ laughter ] >> seth: and you created it. >> it's only seven seasons in. we'll tackle that someday. >> seth: jon hamm, heart-breaking for people like you and i because he's very funny and very hand some. >> no kidding, right? >> seth: what's it like having him onset. >> he's the funniest person on set. infuriating. [ laughter ] you know he's the voice of mercedes.
>> and he was -- we were just hanging out on set, and he got a phone call and he went, "oh, sorry, hold on, this is probably mercedes." [ laughter ] and you -- when they get those jobs, it's the dream job. >> seth: yeah. >> because you get like a new car every year. >> seth: right. >> i pulled up next to this awesome mercedes, and i walked in, and i was like, "hey, john. i think -- i think someone spray painted a dick and balls on your mercedes." [ laughter ] and without missing a beat he was like, "yeah, that's right, i did." [ laughter ] and i was like, "dammit!" >> seth: not fair. >> "stop it!" >> seth: not fair. now, you play a doctor. we see from your clown makeup, you heal with the power of comedy. doesn't always work. there are a lot of -- >> it's a falsehood. >> seth: it's a falsehood. there are new-age, new ways to treat people with medicine every day. have you ever in real life tried any of these? >> oh, yeah, i'm a sucker for that [ bleep ]. >> seth: sucker for medical
>> sucker. as a matter of fact, the other day i gave my wife -- really stressed out from the holidays. and i'm shooting "ballers" in miami, thank you. cpcp no, please. dwayne "the rock" johnson is not a good friend of mine. it doesn't matter. she was -- she's got the kids alone, and so she finally had a night where she could kind of let loose. >> seth: gotcha. >> and she woke up super hung over. and so i got her this new thing, where you can get an i.v. sent to your home. a nurse comes and hooks you up to an i.v. >> seth: for a hangover? >> for a hangover. >> seth: oh, my goodness. >> yeah, they don't even try -- they market it like that. it's like, "it's for a hangover, you piece of crap." >> seth: so did you do it? did you send one to your wife? >> yeah, i sent one to my wife. she was like, "i feel like a million bucks, so --" >> seth: so she signed up.
>> seth: okay, great. >> so that day, i was like, "well, this sounds like a great idea." and i'm a scientist. >> seth: sure. [ laughter ] >> so i decided to experiment with it and proceeded to get [ bleep ] up. [ laughter ] >> seth: okay. for science. >> for science. because i'm not going to half-ass it. i've got to get good and drunk if i'm going to get this thing for myself the next day. so i wake up the next day more hung over than -- and i'm 45. like, my hangovers feel like cancer. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> it's awful. i -- so i called them. i mean, the night before, i, you know, schedule the appointment. and i'm just sitting there, like, shaking on my couch, waiting for them to show up. no-show. [ laughter ] >> seth: the i.v. guy never showed. >> no-show.
>> seth: so you were the dummy -- [ bleep ] >> i had a drink. [ laughter ] >> seth: oh, you went old-school. >> well, come on. when you're like -- yeah. >> seth: you -- well, thank you for doing a science experiment for all of us. >> you're welcome. >> seth: i guess the control group is making sure the person shows. >> exactly, yeah. >> seth: you mentioned dwayne "the rock" johnson. you mentioned "ballers." >> did i mention dwayne "the rock" johnson? >> seth: you did. you mentioned both. [ cheers ] you mentioned miami. >> i usually don't. i usually don't. >> seth: i would imagine, look standing next to jon hamm is one thing. standing next to dwayne "the rock" johnson, who often has his shirt off, how was that for you? >> he's a well-built fellow. >> seth: he's a well built giant of a man. >> i don't get in my head about it. but -- the other day, we had to shoot a scene where we're both entering a sauna, and we're just wearing towels. so i was like, you know, a really insecure dude would be in his trailer doing tons of pushups. get a nice pump going. get a little veiny.
>> seth: sure. >> and i'm comfortable with my physique. but i prefer to have my shirt on most of the time. and so i was like, "i'm not going to do that. i'm just going to be myself." it's even funnier if i, you know, look a little dumpy. [ laughter ] and so i get in my trailererand i get to my -- i'm putting on the little nudie shorts, and i have a robe. and before i put the robe on, i catch myself in the trailer mirror, and the trailer mirror -- >> seth: not good mirrors. >> it's like a circus mirror. >> seth: yeah. >> i look like a clown cartoon character. >> seth: they decided long ago, people who have trailers don't really care how they look. >> people who -- yeah, exactly. and so i immediately did, like, three sets of 20 pushups. [ laughter ] >> seth: oh, you did. >> yeah. shaking the whole time, too, by the way. >> seth: and then when you walk out, do you think the rock with his knowledge of exercise knows you just did 50 pushups? >> i'm sure there's some sign, like -- you know. i was totally red and out of breath, so --
anyone would know that i just did 20 pushups. >> seth: i don't blame you. in the shadow of dwayne "the rock" johnson, we would all behave poorly. >> he's a -- i look horrible standing next to him. >> seth: that's all right. i think we all would, though. i wouldn't beat myself up. i want to ask you one last thing because you worked on "the daily show" -- you worked on "the daily show" for a very long time. >> yeah. >> seth: and the final "daily show" last year, they had all of the correspondents back, and you actually got to go back. how was that experience? >> it was great. it was very moving. >> seth: i imagine. >> in a way that surprised me. because i had never really -- it's hard to really comprehend my time on that show. i -- i was backstage, and we all -- 35 former correspondents were there. and i'm sort of at the back of this tiny hallway, and we're about to go out on stage and dance in front of bruce springsteen. and i was like, "oh, wow, this was something." >> seth: yeah. >> you know?
on, i realize just how important that show was to me. >> seth: yes. well, any time you can do comedy and the payoff can be dancing in front of bruce springsteen, you sort of must be thinking, "this went very well." >> is bruce coming out here? are you -- >> seth: i have a very -- >> oh, my god! >> seth: no, he just cancelled. he just cancelled. i'm so sorry.
