[ cheers and applause ] >> seth: good evening, i'm seth meyers. this is "late night." [ cheers and applause ] how's everybody doing tonight? that is great to hear. let's get to the news everybody. former fbi director james comey testified before the senate intelligence committee today and comey ran the gambit of emotions from bemusement, to confusion, to outright anger. [ light laughter ]
during his testimony today, former fbi director james comey said that the trump administration chose to defame him and the fbi with "lies, plain and simple." a claim that was refuted by both plain and simple. [ laughter and applause ] president trump -- president trump did not post on twitter during james comey's senate testimony today. well, he thought he did, but his aide switched his phone with a speak and spell. [ laughter and applause ] former president barack obama's white house ethics lawyers said yesterday that, "comey's accounts of his meetings with president trump sounds like trial testimony, which is also what trump thinks comey did today. "this is just a trial testimony,
right?" "we'll see how it goes, then decide if we like it?" [ light laughter ] producers have announced that they are suspending production of "the real housewives of toronto." apparently the show didn't work because every argument ended with, "you know what? you're right. i'm sorry." [ laughter and applause ] "sorry." an 88 year old woman has set a new record for oldest female to stand on the wing of a flying plane. it sounds dangerous, but it's actually the safest place to be when you fly united. [ laughter and applause ] where is 12b? we need to remove 12b, she's on the wing. [ light laughter ] chinese dentists this week had to remove a wrench from a man's penis, but the good news is his nuts are on pretty tight now. [ laughter ] why did he go to a dentist?
[ light laughter ] i guess you're in so much pain you can't even think straight. [ light laughter ] >> seth: and finally, a musician broke a world record this week by hitting a single piano key 824 times in one minute. he also broke the record for most satisfied girlfriend. [ laughter and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, we got a great show for you tonight. he's got a great new film, "it comes at night," our friend joel edgerton is back on the show, everybody. fantastic actor and a great guy. she is the writer, director and star of a fantastic new film, "band aid." zoe lister-jones joins us this evening. [ cheers and applause ] and we have music from a great english rock band, royal blood. we're so happy to have them back on the show. [ cheers and applause ] before we get to all that, former fbi director james comey testified today that president trump lied about his reasons for firing comey. as well as their conversations leading up to that firing, meanwhile republicans defended trump by saying, "he doesn't know what he's doing." for more on this, it's time for
"a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: comey's testimony was one of the most highly anticipated political events since the election. the stakes could not be set any higher, but in the run up to the hearing, trump tried to play it cool. earlier this week, he was asked if he had a message for comey before the hearing and just said this -- >> mr. president, what message do you have to give comey ahead of his testimony? >> i wish him luck. >> seth: is there anything more sinister than the way trump says, "i wish him luck?" [ light laughter ] he might as well have said, "may the odds be ever in your favor." [ laughter and applause ] of course, trump did not wish comey well. in fact, after the hearing today, trump's lawyer basically said comey was lying about his conversations with trump, and before the testimony, a non-profit supporting trump debuted an unprecedented attack ad against comey. almost as if he was a political canidate. trump and his allies are targeting the director of the fbi and are questioning his personal integrity, which is completely inappropriate, but
don't take it from me, take it from these guys. >> what we're seeing now is the old playbook of the politics of personal destruction that the clintons have rolled out throughout their career and they are targeting the director of the fbi, and questioning his personal integrity. >> but the -- >> i appreciate the fact that given the information he had, he decided to go forward with it. why do i appreciate the fact? because i'm an american who loves this country -- >> bill clinton essentially called the fbi director james comey, a liar. when he said the fbi director was spouting bull. can you imagine? man. >> seth: maybe. [ light laughter ] maybe, he meant it as a compliment. "man, that's a sick move, i'm going to steal that." [ light laughter ] but now we have very clear, damning evidence, that the president lied about interfering in a criminal investigation, and possibly committed obstruction of justice. and yet the republicans have done everything they can to either dismiss or deny comey's allegations. for example, new jersey governer
chris christie suggested that trump couldn't be held accountable for his actions because he doesn't know what he's doing. >> what people don't understand is that they elected an outsider president. >> mm-hm. >> they elected someone who had never been inside government. what you're seeing is a president who is now very publically learning about the way people react to what he considers to be normal, new york city conversation. >> seth: probably just his accent, but new york city conversations sounds like mafia slang. [ light laughter ] take this guy behind the warehouse and have a new york city conversation with him. [ light laughter ] if that don't work, open up a jersey discussion. [ light laughter ] worse comes to worse, a staten island tête-à-tête. [ light laughter ] of course, coming into today, another one of the big questions was how trump would respond. his staff was reportedly terrified that he would tweet during the hearing. so terrified in fact, they tried to pack his schedule to keep pre-occupied. >> white house officials are trying to keep the president as
busy as possible tomorrow to try and keep him away from twitter so that he can't respond in realtime to james comey's testimonies. >> seth: it's a sad state of affairs when the white house staff has to handle the president like a toddler on a road trip. "okay, i got the ipad and the sticker book. ziplock full of cheerios, three binkeys. okay, i think we're good, let's roll. let's see what we do." "oh! he's already out of his carseat." [ cheers and applause ] but comey -- comey himself did not personally seem concerned with what trump might tweet about him because right off the bat, comey minced no words about the president. calling trump's shifting explanations for why he fired him lies. in fact, comey said he knew instantly upon meeting trump for the first time, even before he was inagurated, that he should start writing down everything trump told him. apparently comey didn't exactly get the most honest vibe off trump when they first met. >> what was it about that meeting -- that led you to determine that you needed to start putting down a written record? >> a combination of things. i think the circumstances, the
subject matter and the person i was interacting with. i was honestly concerned that he might lie about the nature of our meeting. >> seth: that's the fbi director, a guy who has dealt with liars and criminals his whole life, walking out of his first meeting with the president and thinking, "i got write this [ bleep ] down." [ laughter and applause ] [ laughter and applause ] now if it feels to you like there weren't any new bombshells today, that's because we are already surrounded by previous bombshells. our capacity to be shocked has already been so worn down by the trump presidency, he's like your druggie cousin who can no longer surprise you. [ light laughter ] kevin traded aunt janet's cat for robitussin. uh-huh! [ light laughter ] did he? [ light laughter ] for example, comey said trump called him out the blue and said that, "he had nothing to do with russia. had not been involved with hookers in russia." can you imagine any other president saying that?
[ light laughter ] and yet it's barely shrug inducing. you're almost surprised trump didn't throw in a second country. [ light laughter ] "i had nothing to do with hookers in russia, or thailand." [ light laughter ] no one mentioned thailand -- "well, good. we had a great time there, with no hookers." [ light laughter ] at least trump mentioning hookers gave us the delightful bonus of watching serious reports have to repeat those words on national television. >> the idea, the president of the united states is at one point calling the fbi director and saying, "i have nothing to do with russian hookers." >> you don't often read a document from an fbi director taking notes that the president called me to say, "he didn't hang out with hookers." >> hookers. >> hookers. >> hookers. >> and a lot of the dossier was substantiated, but that particularly salacious detail was not. >> the salacious detail about the hookers? >> yes. [ laughter and applause ]
>> seth: about the hookers? you can tell how giddy they are to bring it up. they're just so happy -- "well russia -- you mean the location of the peepee tape? yes and putin, you mean the guy who has the peepee tape? yes, hookers." [ light laughter ] but the crux of the hearing was comey's one on one meeting with trump where the president asked him to shut down his investigation of former national security adviser, michael flynn. remember, trump cleared the room and then told comey, "i hope you can let this go." comey said explicitly, he took that as a direction to end the investigation. and yet republicans seem to harp, not on trump's apparent attempt to interfer with a criminal investigation, but on the words he used. like senator jim risch of idaho. >> he did not direct you to let it go. >> not in his words, no. >> he did not order you to let it go. >> again, those words are not in order. >> no, he said, "i hope." >> i took it as a direction -- >> right. >> i mean he's the president of the united states with me alone, saying, "i hope this," i took it as, this is what he wants me to do. not -- i didn't obey that, but
that's the way i took it. >> you may have taken it as a direction, but that's not what he said. >> correct, that's why -- >> he said -- he said, "i hope." >> seth: look, when someone says, "i hope you'll join us for dinner," they want you to come to dinner. [ light laughter ] they're not going to answer the door and say, "what the hell are you doing here?" [ light laughter ] "you invited me." "i was just hoping!" [ light laughter ] and then there was house speaker, paul ryan who tried a version of the chris christie defense, saying basically that trump was too dumb to know that what he was doing was wrong. >> the president's new at this. he's new to government. and so he probably wasn't steeped in the long running protocols that establish the relationships between doj, fbi and white houses. he's just new to this. >> seth: so wait, the president is just learning on the job? even at chipotle you have to shadow someone for a week. [ laughter and applause ] because he would -- he would never get hired at chipotle. [ light laughter ]
and yet despite republican attempts to dismiss or deny comey's testimony, he repeatedly offered new and important details about bizarre conversations he had with the president that were clearly, at the very least, inappropriate. for example, there's the infamous dinner where trump asked comey for loyalty after repeatedly telling comey he wanted him to stay on and had been doing a good job. trump suddenly called one day out of the blue and asked him to come to the white house. >> he called me at my desk at lunch time and asked me, was i free for dinner that night. he called himself and said, "can you come over for dinner tonight?" and he said, "how about 6:30?" and i said, "whatever works for you, sir." and then i hung and had to call my wife and break a date with her. i was supposed to take her out to dinner that night and -- >> that's one of the all-time greatest excuses for breaking a date, i'd think. >> yeah. [ light laughter ] in retrospect, i would have -- i love spending time with my wife. i wish i had been there that night. [ audience ohs ] >> seth: and if a call from a president is all-time excuse for
breaking a date, saying no to the president and staying home with your wife, is an all-time player move. [ light laughter ] i'm pretty sure if you do that, you get to skip the netflix and go right to chill. [ light laughter ] in fact, as comey detailed, he esident's repeated attempts to talk to him privately that he implored attorney general jeff sessiton.to know how to handle the situation. thera pause from him? what happened? clearly. i have a recollection of him his body language gave me the sense like, what am i going to do? >> did he shrug? >> i don't remember clearly. i think the reasonme av recollection of almost the -- impeo?ti [ light laughter ] it's amazing to me how many times in donald trump's short presidency people have resorted to making a face youldsitc.
[ light laughter ] and it makes me happy because we us >> i have some recollection of almost the -- imperceptible like -- ♪ ♪ [ laughter and applause ] special production. >> sit, spicer, sit. good dog.

[ light laughter ]isen the predisent of the untied stats. [ light laughter ] in the end, comey was asked why he wanted to come forward to testify publically, and why he

[ light laughter ] >> yeah, no, it is pretty -- well it's scary to act in as
well. i think -- >> seth: if you went on the subway and someone was wearing a werewolf mask. >> hmm. >> seth: and another person was wearing a gas mask -- >> yeah. >> seth: i'd be way more afraid of the gas mask.

[ light laughter ] i would just like a paw on your back. and like, "don't move." [ light laughter ] >> yeah. >> seth: that might have been a guy in a bear suit. i don't know. >> no, but, i was obsessed with seeing bears. and i've actually taken a five day camping trip to yosemite before, because i'm obsessed with seeing a bear. >> seth: you want to see one. >> i really want to see a bear. i have a feeling -- i almost know that when i do see a bear i'm going to take that wish back. >> seth: yeah. [ light laughter ] >> like if you see it at a zoo, there is a big old steel fence, i assume, between you and the bear.
and that's better. >> seth: yeah. >> but i never saw one while i was up there. but i had my garbage robbed by one. >> seth: and how did you know it was a bear? did someone tell you? an expert? >> well the garbage bags were so big, and if it was a raccoon, like it would have had to made off with it like santa claus. >> seth: yeah. >> the garbage wasn't there, it was like way off in the woods. and there was -- this is how i know this is the detective in me.

[ light laughter ] like crossed with oprah, or something. like really smart and really resourceful. >> seth: uh-huh. >> and like know everything, and -- >> seth: i like the -- the idea of oprah post-apocalypse would be very helpful. because i think everybody would be working through a lot of stuff. >> well, or like you, because, like, i feel like you guys meet everybody, and if you -- you know, you get to absorb other people's lives, so it should make you super intelligent. right? >> seth: oh, well yeah, it doesn't, but technically, it should. >> it doesn't. >> seth: yeah, yeah. >> because you're not really listening to me right now. >> seth: not -- >> what was the last thing i said? >> seth: you -- i was back, there was a, couldn't have been a shark?

[ cheers and applause ] ♪ ♪ >> seth: welcome to the show zoe. >> thank you. i'm so happy to be here. >> seth: congratulations on the film. it's yourself and some very funny guys there, adam pally and fred armisen.
how -- did you enjoy working with fred? because i know i do. >> umm, yeah, i mean, he's very nice. he's hard to get to show up to work as you know. >> seth: yeah, absolutely. >> i think -- was the last time he was here was like 2012. >> seth: 2012, he was -- the last time he was here was right before we started. [ laughter ] >> yes. yeah. yeah, no, it was a dream. i mean they're both so funny, and we had so much fun on set. >> seth: and this is -- so you directed a film that you were also starring in. >> yeah. >> seth: what are the unique challenges of being both an actor in scenes and the director? >> you know, i would say, a director obviously calls action at the top of the scene, and cut at the end of the scene. i would say the weirdest thing about wearing both hats was having to call cut on my own sex scene. >> seth: oh, interesting. yeah. >> it's a strange things, because you're in an intimate experience with another person, and then you just like have to drop it like a sociopath, and just be like cut! [ laughter ] >> i will say, after doing it a
number of times, i feel like it's kind of like a capital-p power move in real life. >> seth: oh yeah. >> if you were like in bed with somebody and not feeling it, to just be like, cut. [ light laughter ] that's a wrap. >> seth: yeah. >> you know? moving on. >> seth: i will tell you that if that had ever happened with me, and a woman had said that, i would not have recovered. [ light laughter ] >> you would have married her, by the way. >> yeah, yeah. i would have married her, and you guys actually formed a band. you guys recorded an album's worth of songs. >> yeah, yeah, so we played all of -- well, the movie is about a couple who can't stop fighting. so they decide to turn all their fights into songs and start a band, and so we played the songs live in the film, and then we recorded an album. our band's called the dirty dishes because that's the crux of our fight. [ light laughter ] >> seth: there you go. >> fights in the film. yeah, and now we just put out an album which is so exciting. >> seth: that's really exciting, and you mentioned that you played live in the film. that is a choice you made as a director because there is a different way to do it, which is maybe a little -- feels a little less authentic.
>> yeah, i feel like it's so rare to see like live performance actually performed live because it's risky for the production. so when i was like, no, that's what i want to do. cause i feel like it's just so electric to see on camera. everyone is like, you're crazy, i was like, deal with it. you know. we're going to do it. it was so fun, because we were like gigging while shooting. >> seth: right. >> so, but we had to actually learn how to -- i mean i had to learn. i didn't know how to play bass. so i learned to play bass for the movie. >> seth: but, you have been in the band before, yes? >> i was in a band. a band is a loose term for what i was in. >> seth: okay. >> it was like half performance art, half, half music, and i was a back-up singer. the band was maxi dial and -- and i just did like a bunch of crazy-ish like all the time. >> seth: what's and example of the performance art half of this band? >> like, i went to k-mart one day and bought like 20 pairs of really like ugly like granny underwear. >> seth: uh-huh. >> i was wearing a cute little dress.
you know i was in my 20s, that was my prime. i put on like a dozen pairs of under wear, so we were singing, and the first pair i took off like really seductively and the whole augience like -- [ gasp ] including my parents. you're welcome, mom and dad. [ light laughter ] and then like i took off a second pair, and then a third, and by the time it got to ten everyone was like, what is happening? [ light laughter ] >> seth: you had to get to ten before they were like, i officially don't think this is normal. [ light laughter ] >> yeah, yeah, yeah, no, up to eight everyone was like i'm into this. >> seth: yeah. >> yeah. on that same one, i was so obsessed with the strokes, the band the strokes, at that time in my life that i also like wrote down on a piece of paper when i was supposed to be actually singing, does anyone have julian casablanca's phone number and i held it up. nobody did. but if you are watching, i tried julian. >> seth: well that's nice. that's nice that you tried. you -- you've accomplished something as an actor that i am so impressed with because i am such a fan of this franchise.
you grew up in brooklyn, you went to school here, and you have been on all four "law and orders!" >> yeah, yeah. >> seth: wow. bravo, by the way, bravo. >> thank you. thank you. [ applause ] thank you. thank you. >> seth: so what is -- what are the four, "law and orders?" "law and order" classic. >> which they call the mothership. >> seth: okay. >> there's "law and order: criminal intent." >> seth: yep. >> there's "law and order: special victims," and then there was a short list one "order trial by jury." which is why i think i do hold the record because it was just one year. >> seth: oh right. >> so not that many -- you know, when you're a new york actor, that's like a batmitzvah. you know, it's a rite of passage. you have to be -- then to like have the egot of the crime drama franchise. >> seth: yeah. did you have a -- pick a favorite? was there one that was a memorable role? >> there was one where i played a junkie who was murdered. >> seth: okay. >> you know, as you do, and i got found in a box again. just a regular day.
>> seth: who found to you? >> chris knoth. >> seth: oh, a good person to be found by. >> okay. mr. big, found my rotting corpse, and i was like covered in like you know, corpse makeup. i was gnarly looking, and when we finished it was like 2:00 in the morning and they were like, do you want us to take your makeup off? and i was like, i think i'm going to stick with it, and like, i was on my bicycle. i lived in the west village. i was like, i'm just going to bike home, and see on a friday night at 2:00 in the morning if anyone wants to party. >> yeah, yeah. >> like will new yorkers be so like myopic that they won't see this? >> seth: well, also, new york has the highest bar for something that's weird. >> yes, but also, like new yorkers don't pay attenion. >> seth: right. >> cause we're just all like on our -- you know -- >> yeah, yeah, yeah. >> our own journeys. so i got on my bike, and i rode around as a corpse, and when i parked it, and locked it up, these dudes were like, hey, my friend wants to talk to you. [ light laughter ] i like legit got cat-called as a rotting corpse. [ cheers and applause ] the thing is, i'd be like thank you so much.
i feel like -- you know, like it's obviously disgusting to be cat-called as a woman, but there is like a little part of all of us that's like i look good today. you know? [ light laughter ] and like, that was it for me where i was like, oh, no, no no, this has nothing to do with me. yeah. [ light laughter ] >> seth: yeah. that's a guy with very specific tastes. [ light laughter ] >> yeah. >> seth: hey, thank for being here, congrats on the movie. >> thank you so much. >> seth: i heard it was number one in the specially on box office last week. >> yeah. >> seth: so well done, and i can't wait for it to open everywhere. thank you so much for being here.
