tv Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC September 14, 2021 11:35pm-12:37am PDT
always. for sandhya patel, chris >> dicky: from hollywood -- it's "jimmy kimmel live"! tonight -- earvin "magic" johnson, kevin heffernan and steve lemme, and music from the marias. and now -- jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: thank you. very nice. thanks. i'm jimmy, i'm the host of the show. pthank you for watching. thanks for coming. thanks for joining us on election day here in the great state of california. it is a recall election, as in, i can't recall why we spent almost $300 million on this.
[ laughter ] but we did. and here we are. the votes are in and soon we'll learn whether gavin newsom will remain as governor or if he will be replaced by one of the 46 lunatics running against him. [ laughter ] a couple of the challengers are people whose names you may know, olympic gold winning stepfather caitlyn jenner but the rest of you memoranda not. former "hustler" magazine editor dan kapelovitz looking serious in a pair of donald trump-colored sunglasses. [ laughter ] jeremy marciniak, his party preference is no party, makes sense, looks like he's never been invited to one. chauncey "criticism" killins. adam papagan, his candidate statement is love u, with a "u."
looks like who shows up to a swingers party alone. [ laughter ] it wouldn't be a california recall election without angelyne. [ applause ] the brats doll who wished on a star to welcome an old woman and that dream came true. she drives a pink corvette around town, then somebody pays for these billboards. she's the closest thing we have to bigfoot here. [ laughter ] then there are about 40 other people. if you're wondering why your craziest neighbor hasn't been feeding the possums lately, it's because she was busy running for governor of california. [ laughter ] the votes haven't been counted but the republican front-runner, layer ray elder, is already claiming he's detected fraud. this is the new thing for republicans. if you win, it was a landslide. if you lose, it was fraud. larry's been claiming the election's been fixed for a few days, as has donald trump, who called it rigged a week before
it even happened, it was a rigged election. i get it you're losers and embarrassed, the same i felt when i was a virgin my senior year of high school. [ laughter ] lying about it doesn't help, it just makes it worse. go rub yourself in the broom closet, like i did. [ laughter ] [ applause ] i don't know how many of you voted today, quick show of hands? all right. okay, just really mostly our staff. [ laughter ] interesting talking to people about this, because most seem to have little to no idea it's happening. many of those who do know it's happening don't seem to be sweating the details either. which we had some fun with in tonight's "california recall" edition of "lie witness news." >> have you voted in the recall? >> i have voted in the recall, i have made my decision. >> can i ask who you ended up voting for? >> i voted for -- oh. larry -- larry elders? larry eldridge?
don't want to say people's names wrong. larry elbridge. >> you're anti-mask? >> i am. >> jeffrey epstein is anti-mask. would you vote for jeffrey epstein? >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> did you research other candidates? >> oh, for the other available candidates? >> for the recall, yeah. >> i looked at a couple, two or three others, i had friends recommending different things. they didn't speak to me like larry elbridge did. >> the stuff people were saying about pat sajak didn't resonate? >> didn't resonate with me. >> do you think kanye west will make a good governor if elected? >> absolutely not. >> kanye's running for governor of california. >> uh-huh. >> he's having campaign listening parties in wyoming. >> yeah. >> do you think that's misguided? >> i believe so. you're not reaching the audience you need to reach. if it's for california, if it's for los angeles, it needs to be for the public of los angeles in los angeles. >> if larry ends up not winning will you be voting in next month's re-recall to recall whoever wins the recall? >> yes, and everyone, vote.
>> have you voted? >> no, i haven't. as far as i know, you can just put, what's the word, "recall" on a piece of paper, just hand it to them, that's considered a vote. >> yep, i've heard that as well. i've heard you can vote verbally. >> yeah. >> so do you want to verbally vote right now? >> yes, would i could. >> yeah, okay. i can walk you through it. state your name. >> arthur ponto. >> party preference? >> republican. >> candidate of choice? >> larry elder. >> second candidate of choice? >> hm. is there a second? >> ted lasso? >> ted lasso. [ laughter ] >> if you could sign your name in the air with your finger? [ laughter ] >> ding! >> is that good? >> all right, congratulations, you voted, man. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: i'd vote for governor lasso. there's a new yellow book on the way. another one detailing donald trump's final days in the white house. this one might be the craziest yet. you know how we used to joke
about how scary it was that trump had the nuclear codes? we weren't alone. the book "peril" is a group of nervous high-ranking government officials following the attack on january 6th on the capitol, mark milley, chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, was so concerned about what trump might do, he took secret steps to make sure he didn't launch nuclear weapons. after a call from nancy pelosi, milley convened a meeting with the top military officials and he instructed them to call him immediately if there was any move by trump to launch a nuclear strike. basically, he had to babyproof the nuclear football. [ laughter ] he was worried trump might try to start a war to stay in power, so much so he called the top military leaders in china twice to assure them we weren't going to attack them. that's a hell of a call. hello? i want to call and say, we're not going to attack you. there's also an interesting anecdote about what went down between trump and his vice poodle in the days leading up to
january 6th. according to the book, mike pence, when he refused to try to overturn the election, trump warned, if you don't do this, i don't want to be your friend anymore. [ laughter ] pence is like, we're friends? this is good too. in the heat of all this, pence reportedly reached out to former vice president dan quayle to get his advice. that makes sense. i'm in a bind, i think i'll call the guy who couldn't spell potato. [ laughter ] at this point trump is going to have to build a presidential library just to hold all the books that have been written about him. [ laughter ] in new york city last night, in the biggest and most tone-deaf stars got dolled up for the annual met gala, everyone except for nicki minaj, who supposedly refused to get vaccinated, which was required in order to attend. and that happenstance led to a controversial tweet from nicki which led to this controversial reading of that tweet from nicki. >> she said that her cousin in trinidad, quote, won't get the vaccine because his friend got
it and became impotent, his testicles became swollen, his friend was weeks away from getting married, now that girl called off the wedding. pray on it, make sure you're comfortable with your decision, not bullied. which seems sensible. >> jimmy: yeah, hey. [ laughter ] which part? then this tweet spreads like crazy, everybody's posting it, which has to be great news for nicki's friend's cousin, poor guy. [ laughter ] sitting at home on his couch, tv dinner resting on his nuts. [ laughter ] now he has -- now he's famous. who knew "testicle inflation" was a side effect of covid? nicki lashed out at the coverage, mad, "three lies in a row, i cited my young child is as why i didn't want to travel, notice how none mentioned that, ask yourself why that was." maybe because we got distracted by your cousin's friend's hippo balls? [ laughter ] [ applause ] but this gives also chance to
talk about something that actually is important. nicki's cousin's friend got the covid vaccine. then his testicles swelled up. that doesn't mean his testicles swelled up because of the covid vaccine. you get the vaccine, fall in a manhole, doesn't mean moderna causes manhole accidents. [ laughter ] when two things happen close together, we tend to see them as connected. if this friend, hate to say it, if your testicles swell up, the question is did you get a vaccine recently, it's, what have you been doing to your balls? [ laughter and applause ] by the way, if anyone can track down this friend of nicki's cousin, i would really like to talk to him, i have questions. [ laughter ] today was the annual apple iphone event, or as tim cook calls it, "give me all your money day." [ laughter ] i woke up, my iphone 12 was begging for its life, very sad. apple, it is incredible, apple has this amazing ability to
create these high-end, cutting-edge devices that we all want to throw in a river the minute they release one in a new particular. the main event, it was my cousin micki's birthday, she's 50 years old today. [ cheers and applause ] we had ice cream to celebrate. look at this. >> thank you, thank you! >> jimmy: for your 50th birthday, we got you 22 balloons. thank you, it's perfect. >> jimmy: did you have a good day? >> i did, thank you so much. everyone made me feel really loved. >> jimmy: everyone loves miki, she's the most positive american, like a cupcake with sprinkles riding a unicorn. [ laughter ] maybe you've seen miki on the show, if you have, you know she has a way with words and phrases and so miki, to celebrate your special day, we put something together. this is -- we put together a loving tribute, these are all things miki really said as read by her family and friends, so please enjoy the "wit and wisdom
of our magical miki." >> i'm aunt chippy, miki's mom. for the last 50 years, she's been saying some pretty crazy things. here are a few of them. >> i went away on a trip recently, and miki texted me and she said, i am so happy that you're on vacation, you finally have some time to decompose. [ laughter ] >> one time we were going to a wedding and she said, we just made it by the nick of our feet. or however the saying goes. >> one day miki was telling us about something funny that happened. she said, i was laughing from the epitome of my stomach. [ laughter ] >> miki said, regarding her new electric scooter, it's like a bike on wheels. [ laughter ] >> miki once referred to s argu from africa. and then she said, i mean, australia. [ laughter ] one time i overheard miki really upset because there was an indonesian baby in the news, and he was smoking cigarettes, and i heard her say, a smoking baby?
why isn't p.e.t.a. getting involved? [ laughter ] >> miki did call me on the phone and said to my, mom, do me a favor, i sent you a package, keep a blind eye out for it. [ laughter ] miki, so genuinely said, are the cubs and the eagles the same team? laugh paragraph. >> mic your once asked me, does the heart of an artichoke come from an animal? [ laughter ] >> one time miki said, books can be deceiving. >> the squeaky worm gets the meat. >> he is the dog who cried wolf. >> i loved the movie "i never watched the book." >> she's a thorne in our waist. >> you've got your pie cut out for you. >> she's going to grow up to be one of those people who eat a lot of meat, a carnival. >> who knew winnie-the-pooh is so smart? what is winnie-the-pooh, a dog? >> i don't want to be the barrier of bad news but jeff goldblum may be dead.
>> they took her to jail and strip teased her. >> we were sitting down to dinner, elk, and she was excited. she said, i love elk, it's a fish, right? >> when i found out my roommate in college was blind, she asked me, how are you going to talk to him? and i said, with words. [ laughter ] >> christmas eve, we have a seafood feast. miki was trying to distinguish between squid and octopus. and she said, the one with all the testicles. >> happy birthday, you beautiful dumb dumb. [ laughter ] i love you! [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you for loving me! >> jimmy: cousin micki, everybody, 50 years old. [ cheers and applause ] all right. we have a good show for you tonight. from "tacoma fd," steve lemme and kevin heffernan. we have music from the marias. and we'll be back with earvin "magic" johnson. so stick around!

when we went to a tyson fight. so jimmy, it's all -- most of the dream team, we're all there together. charles barkley stood up and said, i'm going to get drinks for everybody. took everybody's order. well, the bell rang as he got in the hallway to order the drinks. and mike went and knocked him out in 20 seconds. [ laughter ] charles barkley comes back with all the drinks and he said, what happened? [ laughter ] we said, "the fight's over!" he threw the drinks in the air. he stormed off. [ laughter ] [ applause ] >> jimmy: that's pretty good. >> bcause he was so mad. well, mike tyson used to knock everybody out. >> jimmy: i remember, oh, boy, that was the best. he'd come out, no music, no fight song -- >> socks, gym shorts. >> jimmy: probably naked if he was able to. >> if he could, he would have. >> jimmy: crush somebody and leave. >> exactly. >> jimmy: yeah.

[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: look at you guys, all dressed up and everything. >> i know, this is crazy. i don't wear ties anymore. how's it look? >> you look good, great. [ applause ] >> jimmy: you are dressed almost identically to guillermo, as a
matter of fact. [ laughter ] >> really? >> jimmy: 30 years, you've known each other as long as cookie and magic hoof been married. [ laughter ] >> yes, ardi's tonight. >> love the roast beef sandwich. >> jimmy: how did you meet? >> similar to cookie and magic. >> i was wearing very tight shorts. [ laughter ] very tight. >> we went to colgate university, went to college together. and it's upstate new york -- any colgate people out there? >> jimmy: no, no. [ laughter ] maybe they brushed their teeth with it, but probably not anything other than that. [ laughter ] >> we went to college together. it didn't start out very well. i was in a fraternity. we used to have parties in the wintertime. people would come to the party at the practice tenderty house, they would take their winter coats off, throw them on a pile in the living room. one night, having a party, i was rady to leave. went to get my coat out of the pile. and it was missing, it was gone. the whole -- my coat was gone,
somebody stole it. i was pissed off, it's cold in upstate new york, didn't have a coat. a couple weeks later, we had another party. i went to the pile. there's my coat sitting there. i found it. i picked it up. i reach in the pocket. and the idiot who stole my coat had left his college i.d. in the coat pocket. and i looked at it. "steven carlos lemme." [ laughter ] so i went looking for the guy. and i found him on the dance floor. uh-huh, dancing. and i say, hey, buddy, you stole my coat. he said, no, i didn't. i said, i found your i.d. in it. he said, oh my god, the guy who stole my coat must have been the same guy who stole my i.d. [ laughter ] touche. >> jimmy: diabolical. >> it was. he liked that, i could tell he liked that. you have to understand from my perspective. >> jimmy: okay. >> you know, a coat, it was freezing all the time. i was a freshman, down the hill at this fraternity party, a blizzard started. i went and looked at this pile
of coats. i started sifting through them. this is like you're at the shopping warehouse, a pile of coats. that wrapped around me twice.at- [ laughter ] and the best part was, i reached into the pocket and there was a jumbo snickers bar. [ laughter ] and i was like, this, this is the winner right here. i walked home up this hill, cardiac hill, ate my jumbo snickers bar. i forgot where i had gotten the coat. i came back a couple of weeks later, met kevin, and he hated me. >> jimmy: yeah, sure. >> then we went to arby's. >> jimmy: went to arby's, yeah. it seems unwise to pick the coat of the biggest guy at the party. i mean, it seems like that just is inherently a bad decision. >> you mean because he was going to kick my ass? >> jimmy: yes, presumably. >> except i said it wrapped around me twice. it was the warmest thing i'd tried on in my life. >> jimmy: you're saying comfort was top priority? >> the blizzard, and the hill was called cardiac hill, so i
had to insulate myself. >> jimmy: i see, all right, all right. very good. now, you guys are doing this show, i still lived in seattle, i lived in tacoma for a short time. >> oh, you did? >> jimmy: in tacoma, "tacoma fd." why did you pick tacoma for the site of the show? >> a few years back we made "super troopers." [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: right, yes, everybody loves -- >> yeah. and, you know, the premise of the movie was cops who are in a remote area and have time on their hands to screw around. we were making this firefighter show, trying to think of what the equivalent of that was. to us it was, let's set it in the rainiest city in america. then the firefighters would have time to screw around. >> jimmy: makes sense. >> which makes sense. but the tacoma fire department were pissed off. >> jimmy: really? >> the real guys. >> jimmy: mad once they saw the show? or -- >> they liked it, but at the time, they heard about it. we were doing a standup show in seattle. we're sitting backstage. the owner of the club came out and said, hey, there's a bunch
of tacoma firefighters here, and they want to talk to you. and it's not a good thing, you know? [ laughter ] we're like, oh, man. we went out after the show. they said to us, hey, we work really hard here in tacoma, we're the hardest-working fire department, we don't appreciate you guys presenting us that way. and we said, okay, tell you what, we'll do a good job, we'll represent you well. the guy said, by the way, and he pulled out a big card, i also do technical consulting for film and tv. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: and by the way, while we're on the by the ways, how hard could they be working if they decided to show up in force at a comedy show? >> that's right. >> jimmy: so they like it now? >> they like it. we're friends with them. they send us all kinds of -- they sent us an ax. >> jimmy: they did? >> a bejazzeled ax. it was a gift. >> jimmy: apparently you can mail an ax these days. [ laughter ] firefighters do have a lot of free time, they definitely do. and it's not just fires that
they're dealing with. they have to kind of do, like, whatever weird calls come in, they have to take care of them. >> oh, yeah. no, i mean, you know -- like firefighters are kind of a catch-all. >> jimmy: yeah. >> for everything. of course they fight fires. car accidents, they're there. they also have to deal with whatever other noncriminal call that comes across -- for instance, when we were interviewing firefighters for our show, asking them about stories, the one common thing was how many guys they have to rescue who have gotten their penis stuck in things. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: this happens a lot? >> it happens a lot. >> apparently all the time. >> especially on full moons. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: what? >> full moon, penis stuck. >> jimmy: on full moons this happens more often? >> apparently, that's what they said. >> jimmy: really? >> yeah. we ask firefighters, like is the penis thing true? they're like, oh, yeah, absolutely. >> then they go to you a list. wedding ring, people get stuck
in their wedding ring. >> jimmy: how romantic. >> soda bottle. they go through this list of crazy stuff. >> anything you can put your penis into, they have pulled a man out of that thing. [ laughter ] >> at work. >> jimmy: wow. i always knew they were heroes. i did not know the extent. >> yeah. >> jimmy: of their heroism, yes. >> and it's also -- they take things out of people. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: it's the circle of life, in a way. >> that's right, that's right. >> jimmy: well. well, i'm sure they're honored to have you representing them. >> yeah. >> jimmy: thanks for coming. the show is "tacoma fd." season 3 premieres thursday at 10:00 on trutv. steve and kevin, everybody. [ cheers and applause ] thank you, gentlemen. we'll be back with the marias!
