there he is. >> "mr. universe" -- >> hot pockets! >> thank you, thank you. [ light laughter ] that'll be on my tombstone. [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: who doesn't yell "hot pockets" at you? >> you know, it's either that or bacon or "you're sexy and good in bed." [ laughter ] >> jimmy: you get a lot of that, yeah. >> i have to point this out. i was talking to quest before the show. i was in my green room. >> jimmy: uh-huh. >> and he came by. and i was like, "hey." and we know each other from twitter. and -- [ laughter ] which essentially means we don't know each other. [ light laughter ] and then -- and so i was talking to him. i was like, "hey, what song are you going to bring me out to?" and he just look at me. he's like, "what?" and for a second i realized -- i was like, "maybe he's not in the band. maybe he's just a black guy with a comb in his hair." [ laughter ] and for a second, i was like, "i'm going to go and kill myself." [ laughter ] -- black people going, "hey, you should be in a band. are you in a band?" [ laughter ] >> jimmy: you can't do that, man. you can't do that. >> it was very awkward. >> jimmy: yeah, well, now you
kind of know each other. >> but he does -- he's in the band. >> jimmy: yeah, he is definitely in the band. good call. you're in the middle of a 50 city stand-up tour. >> yeah. i'm very excited. >> jimmy: it's a long tour. >> it's a -- you know, it's a lot of hotels. i know comedians don't really talk about hotels really, but i'm joking. [ light laughter ] but i spend too much time in -- sometimes at night, i find myself thinking about hundreds and hundreds of interesting people that have stayed in my room. and then, i'll just get up and sleep in the tub. [ laughter ] [ audience ohs ] that's disgusting. you couldn't give away a used mattress, but you'll pay a hundred bucks to sleep on one for a night. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: it is weird, right? >> yeah, but i love -- i love the hotels that provide stationery. because the first thing i like to do when i get to my hotel room is write a letter. [ laughter ] "my dearest gwendolyn --" [ laughter ] "i arrived by nightfall at the embassy suites." [ laughter and applause ] >> jimmy: the embassy suites. >> yes.
"it'll be a fortnight after my return that this letter shall arrive." [ laughter ] "allow me to explain the curious charge in the ledger." [ laughter ] "it is because i miss thee so much, darling, that i accidentally ordered 'sorority sisters 7.'" [ laughter ] >> jimmy: now, in your act, you do talk about food. you mentioned hot pockets. >> yeah. >> jimmy: living on the road, i remember when i did stand-up -- it's tough. it's just kind of tough. what it is? what do you eat? what's your diet? >> well, lately, i've been eating a lot of subway, which is a bit of a disappointment. i don't know if you've been to subway. you're always like, "hey, subway, eat fresh." and then, you bite it, and you're like, "not fresh, not fresh." [ laughter ] so i think i go to subway -- you know, i go there, and not just because, you know, it's fun watching a clinically depressed person throw together your sandwich. [ laughter ] they make it right in front of us, you think they'd do it with a little bit of flair. >> jimmy: yeah, yeah. [ laughter ] they're so bummed out.
>> "you want mayonnaise?" and you're like, "uh, sure." and they're like -- [ laughter ] i feel like i'm at benihana. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: not quite that. >> it's brutal. you know, but i love all the steps you have to follow. the first step is you have to pick out your bread. and by that, they mean pick out the color of your bread. [ laughter ] because it all tastes the same, you know? all the toppings are free at subway. "free lettuce! no way!" [ laughter ] "how do you guys pay the rent?" [ laughter ] "are there free napkins?" [ laughter ] i think the toppings are free to distract us from the fact that we shouldn't be paying for the meat. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: yeah, yeah. that's understood, yeah. >> they are so stingy with that nasty ass meat at subway. [ laughter ] they, like, peel it off like it's from a wad of ones or something. [ laughter ] "here's three slices of ham. get yourself something nice, all right?" [ laughter ] >> jimmy: oh, my gosh. oh, my goodness.

[ laughter ] >> jimmy: no, no, no.
