and all those things. and you did it, and what you and rorie and robin and your tremendous collaborators, and dre in the booth, you took something and got better every [bleep] day (cheers and applause). >> larry: thank you. >> and i think that-- we talked about a little thing called, i guess the word someone uses resonance, did you resonate with an audience. i would say-- not only that, but in an important way, but in a way that you don't even realize yet and won't reveal itself for years to come and it's this. you started a conversation that was not on television when you began. and you worked with a group of people who you invited to that conversation to collaborate with you, to sharpen that conversation, and what you don't realize is, you walked out of this room and that conversation doesn't end. and all the people that you work
with are going to take what they learned here, and what they learned from you, and the beautiful experience that they had, and you're going to start to see them doing things in the business as well. and taking that and taking other experiences. and you're going to watch that flourish. and that's going to have you on it. >> larry: well, thank you so much. (applause) >> and that's a beautiful thing. and so in closing. >> larry: yes. >> i want to say to you this. you did it, [bleep] >> larry: no, jon. >> you did it-- . >> larry: no, you can't. >> you can't say. >> my mishbu cha. >> larry: that works, that works. >> i love you. >> larry: jon stewart, i love you. thank you so much. thank you.

if i hired you, what is your plan? i see a few things changing. less mergers and acquisitions, more charitable donations. retiring on top. linda?! letting boredom get the best of me. and then, returning triumphantly. smells like we're done here. [old spice anthem] i'm hillary clinton, and i approve this message. michael hayden: if he governs consistent with some of the things he said as a candidate, i would be very frightened. gillian turner: he's been talking about the option of using a nuclear
weapon against our western european allies. max boot: this is not somebody who should be handed the nuclear codes. charles krauthammer: you have to ask yourself, do i want a person of that temperament controlling the nuclear codes? and as of now, i'd have to say no.
we put our energy into dgiving it the bold,.. rich taste of real starbucks espresso with a hint of cream. so you can put your energy, where it really counts. starbucks doubleshot espresso. real life energy. (cheers and applause). >> larry: all right, welcome back. i'm here with all the contributors, fran chest cass ram see, robin thedder, jordan
carlos and brace parra. we're just having fun, having some drinks am kicking it. does anybody want to share any favorite moments, recollection or fun stuff. people like to know what happened behind the scenes. does anybody have a good behind the scenes. >> i have a really good writers room moment. >> larry: careful. >> we had a story that we didn't get on the air. maybe it could have saved us. (laughter) >> yeah, it was about a guy who got caught jerking off a dolphin. >> larry: oh yeah. >> we watched this clip so many times in the room, and it was really, really-- some people were into it, rory. >> yeah. >> hey, i'm not going to lie t was a good looking dolphin. >> the worst part is you have beer foam in your mustache. >> that sounds more like the best part. >> wait, i have a question, rory, how many mustaches do you have? how many do you own. >> rory has a lot of mustaches. >> i don't own any, comedy central is paying for all-- i don't know what i am going to do now that i don't have a binder
full of mustaches. >> my whole attitude is why would you not always wear a mustache, it doesn't make any sense. why wouldn't every character have a mustache. it is simple math. >> some of us choose to have mustaches. >> you are the ones, i don't see gender, you know what i mean. >> larry: but i love that rory show always goes for the '70s bushy porn mustaches. >> again, called the right choice. >> rory, you are playing a six year old in this piece. and you're like, going to need a stash. >> but you have a porn stash book, right. >> it's not a book. more of a collection. >> it's a graphic novel. >> it is graphic. >> by the way, the dolphin jerking thing we got on the show but we had to blur it all, but apparently you can't show bestiality on tv. >> larry: well, apparently, you probably shouldn't show. >> i don't know. hey, i don't run the network, you know, i don't know. >> the best part so a lot of
times our audience gets to see things here uncensored that we have to censor on tv, so when lenny kravitz's dick fell out. >> that was a fantastic. >> one of my favorite moments, this was behind the scenes that jordan carlos, you probably don't know about. >> oh. >> we actually taped a food desert and it was absolutely fantastic. i loved it. but we gave jordan this huge tomato to eat. and so he bit into it, it was like the climactic moment and he bilt into it and the second bite we had what we needed. and then we started talking about the next shot. and we were like so should we do this, should we do that. and jordan is still eating this tomato. and he is like-- and we would like talk, talk, talk, talk and then we turn, and we were like oh [bleep] cut, cut, cut. >> can i say something now, can i say something now.
because i'm a [bleep] professional, okay? (cheers and applause) >> and he is definitely allergic to tomatoes. >> i am. pie body broke out in hives. >> one of my favorite things he saw on the clip was when grace by the way can write a song in like 45 seconds i'm not lying, you never see anything about it, she said we need a song like, this give mow ten seconds, she came down to larry office with jordan with the guitar. with are you doing, i think i got a little something for you guys. i see a video of you sitting on larry's couch, this is the greatest. >> remember it was all song parodies we couldn't use because we couldn't license any of the song, all sam smith and i don't know what else we were doing. >> there was that. >> bruno mars. >> the weekend. >> you had gone all day, rehearsing it with the popular songs and then 15 minutes they were like hey, can you change all the melodies? >> and you did.
>> we did. what you saw in that sketch we had written literally 15 minutes before we taped, never rehearsed it. >> grace actually did a song in our office today cuz i just picked up my phone and i was like, give me a song about your guitar. she had to say good-bye to it and had a song immediately it is supercute. >> you guys have an office? >> you have an office. >> what the hell. >> well, you guys remember. >> are they giving offices away. >> larry: (cheers and applause) >> i have to head and do shows in wisconsin. so if are you in wisconsin, make it out there. shameless plug. but at the same time, i love you guys, thank you so much for everything. and [bleep] don't think i packed underwear. i didn't pack und
that's why we want to make sure you won't have to wait on hold. and you won't have to guess when we'll turn up. because after all we should fit into your life. not the other way around. (cheers and applause). >> larry: thank you. before we sign off for the last time, thank you. i just want to say thank you so much again for comedy central for giving me this opportunity. also thank you to jon stewart for believing in me. (cheers and applause). >> larry: back if the day, jon, you have no idea what that has meant to me. and thanks to our amazing staff, cast and crew without worked so hard every day to bring you this show. you guys are the best. you really are. thank you. and i want to especially thank our fans who have been just amazing. the outpouring of love and support this week has been overwhelms. and even the haters, your
passion is fantastic, guys. it is. it is. let me tell you something, never undervalue the passion of a hater. now before each show i have a q & a with the audience and the number one question i get is why is your map upside down, right? and i always say well, i disis agree with your premise. right? you see, upside down is just an opinion. if you were floating in space, the earth could take on any orientation. but as a culture we've all agreed with the opinions that the world should be seen in a certain way. so at the nightly show our chief mission was to disagree with that premise and to see the world in a way-- (applause) >> and to see the world in a way that may not make everybody comfortable. and to present it with a cast of people without don't always get to have a voice on that.
