tv Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC December 2, 2021 11:35pm-12:37am PST
>> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live"! tonight -- riz ahmed, nicole byer, and music from norah jones. and now, jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: thank you. thank you, thank you. very nice, thank you. welcome, i'm jimmy, the host of the show. thank you for watching and thanks for coming -- [ cheers and applause ] oh, that's very kind, thank you. it's festive around here, and it was a festive night in our nation's capital tonight. at the white house, the
president and first lady were on hand for the 99th annual lighting of the national christmas tree. the event was hosted by ll cool j. originally snoop was set to host, but he cancelled once he found out it wasn't the kind of "tree lighting" he was used to. [ laughter ] it was a star-studded lineup that is going to air as a tv special, sunday night on cbs. and the event itself is very different from the previous administration. it's the 99th annual national christmas tree lighting ceremony from washington, featuring president joe biden, buggy rides, nonalcoholic cider, the world's biggest gourd, performances by the pennsylvania state war widows choir, marie osmo osmond, lesley stahl, billy davis jr., and marilyn mccue. hosted by l cool jj from "csi" or "ncis." the 99th annual christmas tree
lighting ceremony only on cbs, following an all-new episode of "bull," which is still on. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: oh, that's good, i didn't know that. good for "bull." this is some event. this might seem like we faked it, but we didn't. grampotus even gave a nice little shout out to l.l. >> and a special thanks to tonight's host, ll cool j. i tell you what, man. he looks like he can still play. and i'm not talking about instruments, i'm talking about football or something. anyway, i tell you what. >> jimmy: i'll tell you what. the tree's not the only thing lit tonight. [ laughter ] it's good they got the tree lighting done tonight, because by saturday the government might not be able to pay for electricity. congress is once again racing to pass a deal to keep the government funded and avoid a shutdown. if a resolution isn't passed by the senate, the government would run out of money tomorrow at midnight. i don't understand this. donald trump isn't president anymore. why are we still running the country like it's one of his
businesses? [ laughter ] a number of republicans in the senate were saying they might vote against it as some kind of protest against the biden administration's vaccine mandate. we really are at a level of crazy that's hard to understand. these guys are threatening to shut down the government because the president is trying to protect us from a deadly disease. it makes no sense. it's like running your minivan off the road because you don't like the song on the radio. [ laughter ] biden said he spoke to mitch mcconnell and chuck schumer and believes there won't an shutdown -- "unless somebody decides to be erratic." and by "somebody," he means ted cruz. the senator from texas. hot dog teddy seems to be desperate for attention again. ted cruz and i had an interesting back and forth today. last night, i posted a picture of him, naked sitting on a hot dog on twitter. [ laughter ] so this morning, he took time away from holding the government hostage, to tweet: "so, ever since i kicked his ass at basketball, jimmy kimmel has
been kinda obsessed. last night, he put out a really creepy fake picture of me --" they're all creepy, by the way "naked, riding his hot dog. sorry, jimmy." and then a meme that i think is from "jeopardy!" of a contestant saying "what is, he's just not into you?" so i wrote back. "dearest ted, what a strange erotic fantasy you turned this into. i'll see you in cancun." [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] i get it, he doesn't like the picture. so please do not tweet this photo of ted cruz using the hashtag "hotdogteddy." [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] he doesn't have time for nonsense like this. he's busy trying to shut the country down. [ laughter ] in germany, they are not taking any chances with this omicron variant. the german government today announced a nationwide lockdown. for people who aren't vaccinated. always a little scary when you hear the words "germany" and "lockdown" in the same sentence. [ laughter ] unvaccinated germans will be banned from all but the most essential businesses.
they will only be allowed to go to supermarkets, pharmacies, and stores that sell black turtlenecks. that's it. [ laughter ] germany has one of the lowest vaccination rates in western europe. the only shots germans take are jagermeister and rumplemintz. [ laughter ] back here in the united states, more cases of omicron were reported today. one in colorado, one in minnesota, and five in new york. president biden today unveiled his plan to fight covid and only may criterion during the winter. . international travelers coming into the country will now have to show proof of a negative test the day before they leave their country. and biden is requiring insurance companies to cover the cost of at-home covid tests. you know what? maybe they can combine the at-home covid tests with pregnancy tests. "honey, i have good news and i have bad news." [ laughter ] biden said his plan "pulls no punches" and that he believes it could unite the country. [ laughter ] yes. at this point, dolly parton and
a tub of super glue couldn't unite this country. [ laughter ] meanwhile, our former president dialed up his fox & friends this morning on the phone, guess he hasn't figured out facetime yet, to share his thoughts on the job biden is doing and give a quick but powerful lesson in revisionist history. >> he's done an absolutely terrible job, getting it out, and getting people to take it. people just don't want to take it. the vaccines have been -- i have to be very proud of the vaccines, we did it in less than nine months. people said it was going to take 5 years to 12 years and probably wouldn't work. they work incredibly well. some people don't want to take them and that's their freedom pand that's what we have to do. but people don't want to take them because they don't trust biden, they don't trust the administration. we had none of that, everybody was fighting to take them, we were doing great. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: what are you even talking about? the first vaccine was given on december 14th after you lost the election. the only thing people were fighting over when you were president was toilet paper. [ laughter ]
[ cheers and applause ] it's like he's talking himself into something. "i invented the vaccine, it's the best vaccine, but people shouldn't take it if they don't want it, especially not if joe biden, who had nothing to do with it, is telling them to take it. and they should take it, but they also shouldn't if biden tells them to, because if it weren't for me we wouldn't even have a vaccine for people to refuse to take!" " is that clear? or should i keep going? because i can go for hours. [ cheers and applause ] meanwhile, it hardly seems possible but there's an even dumber donald trump out there, donald trump jr. [ laughter ] he was on "hannity" last night. sean welcomed the human sweatstain whose reason for appearing on television was to slander dr. fauci. >> he doesn't know what he's talking about, he's a bureaucrat. he's not a good doctor, he's a bureaucrat. they're going to implement draconian measures to shut down our economy because they don't care, there's no consequence.
as long as we keep giving that clown his 15 minutes of fame, the tv that he so desperately craves, we're going to be in these lockdown situations forever. >> jimmy: that's a very interesting clip. because it's hard to figure out if he's talking about dr. fauci or if he's talking about himself. [ laughter ] let's play it back piece by piece. >> he doesn't know what he's talking about. [ ding ] >> jimmy: that's you. >> as long as we keep giving that clown his 15 minutes of fame -- [ ding ] >> jimmy: that's you. >> the tv he so desperately craves -- [ ding ] >> jimmy: and you. >> we're going to be in these lockdown situations forever. >> jimmy: i believe psychiatrists call that projection. [ laughter and applause ] >> jimmy: boy. he sure does talk about the economy a lot for someone who never had to go out and get a job. [ laughter ] have you seen the trailer for the new "magic mike" movie? [ cheers ] steven soderbergh announced what will be the third movie in the "magic mike" series. they are bringing back some of the original cast. and they've added some fresh new faces too.
♪ ♪ [ laughter ] [ cheers ] >> buenos dias! >> jimmy: the poodle is off the leash! and one more thing before we forge ahead. it's thursday night which means it's time to bleep and blur the big tv moments of the week, whether they need it or not. it's "this week in unnecessary censorship." [ cheers and applause ] >> if you are vaccinated but
still worried about the new variant, get your booster. if you aren't vaccinated, get that [ bleep ]. >> why are they [ bleep ]ing mike lindell? i did nothing wrong. you know, why did jimmy kimmel [ bleep ] me every night? >> dr. fauci, who will give a brief statement and then answer some questions, he does have a hard [ bleep ]. >> tiger revealing his injury was so bad his doctors considered cutting off his [ bleep ]. >> you have to [ bleep ] till it hurts but you can't go overboard, that's the hard part. >> when i met tommy, somebody came to me after the show and they said, tony bennett would like to [ bleep ] you. and i said, excuse me? >> i can barbecue the hamburgers on my [ bleep ] and hand them off. >> happy national [ bleep ]ing day. did you [ bleep ] today? >> oh, i [ bleep ] at night. that's not true, i [ bleep ] during the day.
no, no, no. >> shalom, happy chanukah everyone! >> jimmy: ugh. shalom, gary. >> happy hanukkah! do you know what night it is? >> jimmy: what night? >> everybody knows it's the fifth night of hanukkah. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: this is -- what do you call yourself? >> i'm not gary. i am the chanucorn. the magical hanukkah unicorn we all know and love. >> jimmy: gary, i've told you this repeatedly in the past, i don't know how many times, we're not doing this. i'm sorry. this is one of our writers, gary greenburg. he's come up with this ridiculous hanukkah unicorn character. [ laughter ] he's been trying to get it on the show for 12 years or something like that -- >> no, eight years. >> jimmy: okay, eight. >> wait a second, eight years? eight nights of hanukkah. this is the year you finally believe! [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: or maybe it's not. chanucorn is not a real thing,
gary. >> is santa a real thing? >> jimmy: it's not even a "not real" real thing, it's a nonsense character you made up. >> stop being a negative nazi. [ moans ] jewish children all over the world know my origin story. >> jimmy: you have an origin story? >> of course i have an origin story. as a small child, i was bitten by a radioactive rabbi. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: okay, you're wasting time. we have guests tonight. >> if i'm not real, how do you explain what happened last thursday? >> jimmy: what happened last thursday? >> the grant finale of our parade, the eagerly awaited arrival of the star of our holiday season. >> shalom! shalom! happy thanksgiving! look, there's a sale at macy's! nobody told me how drafty it would be up here in the sky, where i totally am right now. >> you see? i'm a national treasure! [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: yes, you're right. that was clearly a fake video --
>> oh, it was fake, so now the jews control the media? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i did not say that. i know you badly want to become a beloved holiday character -- >> did somebody say a beloved holiday character? [ cheers and applause ] it's a kwanzaa miracle! >> jimmy: what is going on here? this is another one of our writers, troy. >> no, i'm not troy. i'm the kwanzaaroo. [ cheers and applause ] the mystical kwanzaa kangaroo who brings joy to black children and white kids with dreadlocks. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: did you put him up to this? >> no! what in moses' name are you doing? this is my thing! >> it's 2021, chanucorn. there's room for all of us beloved holiday characters. [ cheers and applause ] >> no, no, no! jimmy, do something! >> jimmy: what do you want me to do? >> i don't know, tell him to stop! >> jimmy: i told you to stop
eight years in a row, you don't listen. >> but i'm real, and he's just meshugganeh. >> jimmy: whoa. >> i see. so the chuanucorn can be real, but the kwanzaaroo can't be? sounds like the chanucorn is a chanu-karen! [ moans ] >> i am not a chanu-karen! >> jimmy: you are being kind of a chanukaren. [ laughter ] but kwanzaaroo, to be fair, i've never heard of you either. >> you weren't watching last thursday? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: what happened last thursday? >> hey, happy thanksgiving from the kwanzaaroo! remember, white people, season your food this holiday! don't put raisins in your mac and cheese! [ laughter and applause ] the kahn intraroo up here in new york city, i'm high as a [ bleep ] above new york. >> jimmy: i appreciate the minimal effort you put into the special effects. but surprisingly, i still don't believe either of you are real. i do believe you're problematic. [ laughter ] let's wrap this up before we all get canceled. >> can i at least give out the gifts in my pouch?
[ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: i don't think that's a good idea. >> oh. i see. a fat, trespassing, bearded white man can give out gifts but a black kangaroo can't? [ moans ] >> jimmy: you're right, give them out. [ cheers and applause ] >> i want to lit everybody know name reaching into my pouch right now.

[ laughter ] >> jimmy: that's weird, yeah. >> so that was weird. >> jimmy: pretend you have a kid, you can't find him. [ laughter ] >> exactly. that's even more creepy. >> jimmy: maybe so, yeah. >> i turn up, i saw bumblebee. >> jimmy: oh, yeah. >> the big yellow transformer, speaks in radio. >> jimmy: uh-huh? >> and i was so excited to see a
massive transformers fan as a kid. you play 50 cent's "it your birthday." people whose birthday it is are coming up, he's dancing with kids, women. i'm there. i'm excited. [ laughter ] i'm very, very excited. phone out, selfie mode, ready to go. i go up. he plays "it's your birthday." i start dancing. i look up and bumblebee is giving me the stink eye. [ laughter ] i just look at him. the look he had on his face -- i think he hated me, man. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: oh! >> yeah, it's kind of weird. i haven't been able to get it out of my head. >> jimmy: for real? >> i'm thinking, if bumblebee is watching at universal studios -- i think i might know him and might have done something to him in the past. [ laughter ] i'm sorry for whatever it was. >> jimmy: did you ever consider the possibility that bumblebee
may have been starstruck? or maybe bumblebee usually only celebrates children's birthdays? [ laughter ] and he's like, what is this guy doing? i'm a transformer. he's an adult. >> i suppose it could be. >> jimmy: it could be either one of those three things. i hope there's no bad blood between you and bumblebee. >> yes. >> jimmy: i'd hate to see your childhood memories be soiled in that way, it's just horrible. what were your childhood memories of birthdays? did you have traditions in your family? >> i had a tradition i thought everyone did but i realized it was just my family. >> jimmy: what was it? >> basically -- let's say it's a kid's birthday. they sing "happy birthday," he blows out the candle, cuts the cake. all the other cousins would be crying out of jealousy because it's not their birthday. >> jimmy: right, yeah. >> so instead of us teaching kids, wait your turn, we just recut the cake for every single kid in the family. [ laughter ]
>> jimmy: you light the candles again? >> light the candles again, sing it in english and urdu. by the end the cake looked like a murder victim. [ laughter ] just 15 kids have cut that cake, whacks all over it. >> jimmy: this is why you think you're 39, you had so many birthdays as a kid. you're miscounting or something. >> exactly. >> jimmy: that's very odd. that is very odd. >> yeah, thanks, thank you. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: because my kids will do that, but we usually get them a little present to kind of make them not feel bad about the avalanche of presents the other one is getting. >> okay. >> jimmy: we never thought about recutting the cake. >> still bribery what you're doing. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: definitely, whatever, it's bad parenting, whatever it is. you celebrate your birthday. you have this movie now. i have to tell you, i am not sure what i'm allowed to say about the movie. other than that kid was super cute. >> yeah. i think that's all we can say, really. >> jimmy: is it really? >> we can just move on.
[ laughter ] >> jimmy: i know i can say, it's very interesting. >> it's a fascinating movie. >> jimmy: yes. [ laughter ] that's all you can say. >> check it out, check it out. it's interesting. because it's one of those films where if you say anything, you might give things away. >> jimmy: right. >> i will say, you said it, psychological thriller. >> jimmy: yes, psychological thriller. >> i can say that, that's safe, we can say that. we can say it's about a father/son story. it's really about a father trying to keep his family safe at all costs, in a very uncertain world. >> jimmy: yes. and you have two boys in this movie. >> i do, yeah. two amazing, amazing actors. >> jimmy: that little boy we just saw, who's super adorable. then his older brother, who is how old? >> i think at the time they were like 8 and 11. 8 and 10. so you got the older one, lucian river, incredible actor. the younger one, dikte, amazing in different ways but still amazing. they say you shouldn't work with kids and animals.
i thought it was because it was chaotic. >> jimmy: you saw what happened with the dreidel dog. [ laughter ] >> yeah. for me it wasn't that, you shouldn't work with kids because they're just better than you. i was getting my ass kicked every day on set. >> jimmy: you felt like that? why? >> because they were amazing. i'd be on set. i'd be looking around thinking, oh, it's the kid's first time on a film set, try and make him feel -- give him some candy. i look over. he sat in the car we're filming in an hour before the scene, crying, ready for the scene. just doing the thing. i'm like, i've got to up my game, man. [ laughter ] i was going home every day going, the kid's kicking my ass every day. i'm trying to make him feel better, he's like, "not now, i'm getting ready for the scene." [ laughter ] he's amazing. i start hanging out with the other kid, idiya. he's a master at improv. i promise you, not a single line in the film he says was in the
script. >> jimmy: really? wow. >> i'm like, this guy's so co confide confident, amazing. i find out today doing interviews, he's never read the script. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: can he read? >> i think so. [ laughter ] yeah, i think so. but i was like -- the whole time i was like, that's great, i should improvise more. so he was like, dude, you just don't read the script. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: that's a heck of a piece of acting advice. >> yes. these guys were my teachers, they took me back to acting school, teaching me opposite things. >> jimmy: i will say about this movie, two things, it's really good. and you're in it. [ laughter ] >> correct, that's good. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: happy birthday. riz ahmed, everybody!

[ laughter ] so -- okay, you've got the standup. i'm thinking about this appearing in front of beyonce in my underpants, which was humiliating. >> i'm sorry i made you relive that. >> jimmy: do you do other impersonations? >> i used to do emma stone. >> jimmy: really? >> ha, it's me, emma, emma stone, wah, i was in "superbad."
[ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: any immerpersonation t includes the person's name, "hi, it's me, emma stone" is not a good impersonation. >> i know. well, okay. i'm just -- i'm black.
