[ laughter ] yeah. he did heroin once and he died. >> jimmy: he died. yeah, you can't screw it that. >> how much heroin did he do?
none. he just had a needle in his arm and felt woozy and fell off a building. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: you are -- i read about on twitter that you were in vegas for new year's eve. >> yes. i went to go see jay-z for this new year's eve concert in las vegas, which was so fun, but afterwards i had one of the most humiliating, embarrassing things in my life ever happen to me. after the show there was this after party and around 4:30 in the morning, when i'm totally out of it, jay-z gets behind the d.j. booth and is rapping along with all his songs. everyone in the audience is going crazy. it's a lot of fun. but at a certain point, he brought the music down. he started talking to the audience. he was like, "all right, everybody, really quick, just want to wish everybody a happy new year. we got a lot of special people in the building tonight. we got me, jay-z in the building. we got beyonce in the building. we got rihanna in the building." and i looked at my friend allen. i was like, "we got aziz in the building." [ laughter ] and jay-z went, "we've got aziz in the building." and i was like, "oh, man, i'm in the building. i had no idea." i have never been a part of building announcements like
that. people are never excited about me being in a building. they're like, "aziz is in the building." it's always like, "aziz is in the building? let's go to another building. [ laughter ] this one's got really low standards." [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: let's go to another building. >> yeah. he said that. and i was like, "oh, that was nice of him to do that." >> jimmy: that's cool." >> but that's when things got terrible because immediately after that he goes, "yo, aziz, come up here and tell everybody a joke." i was like, "ah, no!" [ laughter ] and he kept pushing this. and i'm totally out of it. it's 4:30 in the morning on new year's eve. and he likes, "no, come up here and tell everybody a new year's day joke." that's a really specific request! [ laughter ] a new year's day joke? when is the last time someone told you a funny new year's day joke? [ laughter ] never. so i got up there and i just eventually had to go. and i'll do my best to recreate what happened when he passed me the microphone. did this come out? >> jimmy: yeah. >> this is what happened. so -- >> jimmy: i can give you this mike. >> yeah, okay. cool.
so he passed me the mike. i'm like, "um, okay. okay. yes. um. okay. this one time this restaurant went to my house. [ laughs nervously ] that didn't happen. [ laughter ] i'm sleepy." [ laughter ] i was like, "i have been drinking since 7:00. this isn't a good idea." and i gave him back the mic and the man was not pleased. [ laughter ] he made this weird face. he like grabbed the mic and he was like -- and i felt terrible. i felt like i let him down. so i was like, "oh let me just think of something funny." and i thought of something. and i reached for the mic. he went, "no, you had your chance to be funny. and you missed it." [ laughter ] i was like, "oh no!" but you know, i get it. he's jay-z, right? he's the smoothest man of all time. he lives his life in a different way than any of us, you know? like if jay-z slipped on a banana peel he would just put his other foot on the banana peel and slide to wherever he was going. [ laughter ] "that's really convenient. i got to where i was going even faster than anticipated." [ laughter ] >> jimmy: everybody should be sliding on bananas. >> yeah, my life is the opposite. my life is just me spilling mustard on my shirt all the time.
jay-z is never gonna spill mustard on his shirt. if mustard was about to fall on jay-z's shirt, someone else would coincidentally be passing him a hot dog and the mustard would just go, bloop, bloop, bloop, bloop. he'd be like, "yo, man can i get some must -- [ laughter ] i'm about to take a bite of the world's greatest --" [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: aziz ansari!
