[ laughter ] getting ideas is wonderful [ lahter ] trust me, i know writers who don't have ideas not very happy about it. >> sure. >> seth: you -- you had a cast, they obviously had to play two versions of themselves >> yes >> seth: obviously, it's a challenge for em was it a challenge for you as a their charactersto do both of >> yeah. that was -- i mean, i don't recommend it [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> like you're doing a scene with four actors playing against it's kind of like -- it's kind of like the movie "big business," but scary no "big business? bette midler and - okay, well, i've forgotten [ laughter ] i don't expect you to. t.t no, it's very difficul you've got to like plan it right. lily tomlin. >> seth: there you go. [ cheers and applause >> reprent lily tomlin! lily tomlin all day. represent! [ laughter ] very difficult, as it turns out. and yohave on the days where our actors are the family, it's like fun, and like light and then when they come in as like, ooh, you just feel thes
crew just like - >> seth: yeah. >> everyone's just like -- ass drops out from under them. [ laughter ] when like lupita walks onset >> seth: and lupita, i mean just from the poster, the first time you saw her in the poster, the evil version of her is something else i mean you would have to get - >> sti pretty somehow. >> seth: yeah, still gorgeous, yeah you would have to give notes to her in character >> yeah. >> set was she that kind of actor where -- >> she totally went full daniel day on this one >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> which is totally creepy yeah i'd be -- she'd be in her dressing room alone for like hours waiting. and you'd walk in, and you know she has -- she's doing this voice it's just really scary, and really creepy. 'dand you'd walk in, and s just be like standing in the corner like looking at you and you'd be like, oh! [ laughter ] and then, of course, inevitably you'd give her a note, and she'd have to say something like, you know, "we ne more chex mix on craft services." [ laughter ]
"chex mix. i got you. [ laughter ] but no, she -- her performance -- the entire cast is brilliant she -- you know, has t job of playing the lead, and the main villain in this. so it's kind of like she's doing like both sides of the "silence of the lambs" like spectacle on full it's amazing to watch. >> seth: i can't wait. another thing i remember you talking about with "get out" to sort of add levity to another movie that - n you know just terrifying, but heavy in theme was you would direct sometimes as ctacy morgan, you would di sometimes as obama did you have anything you did on set here >> you know, it wasn't the samei of vibe, because, like when we came in, it was kind of like chilling and cool and quiet. but ere was -- you know, we shot the bad family first. so that the good family could react to them. and kind of know what we're dealing with ana,so i was like, okay, lup i'm going to play your performance from yesterday
she's like, oh no, you know, i can't -- that'll distract me. >> seth: oh, were you just going to like play the audio >> i was just going to throw the audio of her like monologue as the bad guy on, and so she was like, no, no, that'll distract me so i was like, um, okay. so tn, basically i did -- that's where i learned to do the voice. by like doing -- you know. no spoilers, but it was li - you know, she starts, and she's like, "once upon a time. and it was just -- it was like the full test of like, not reverting to "key & peele. seth: right [ laughter ] >> like hammy comedy bits. >> seth: yeah. >> 'cause you know we would havk had a good "us" ch >> seth: right >> if this movie came out. [ laughter ] >> seth: that's really the serpent eating the tail. >> that is >> seth: if you guys come back for another season, and just do your movies, paries. >> be awesome. [ cheers and applause all right, i like that idea! >> seth: there you go. >> that's great. >> seth: you know, you make "get out" and obviously it's hard because you're not a director before, and so you have those hurdles to get over. it seemed like the different set of hurdles this time is now g you're the who made "get out. did you feel that? >> yeah.
you feel that pressure >> yeah, i did you know, people were -- you k know, i get, youw, asked a lot -- everyone's, eh, you know you've got a big task on your hands hereth and i returned to idea that like if i make my favorite movie that doesn't exist, like you knt,, if people don't like i they don't like it but i can watch this movie in like 20 years, and get entertained. and so that's what i did and it's a very different film but it -- you kn, i like it. >> seth: you had a screening at south by southwest, which we were saying backstage just couldn't have been more fun. >> so, i mean, the feeling of getting like a shudder like when that scene that you played like -- hits you know, at the time of the movie, you just get this great shudder. the crowd was so nice. you make this -- these movies with the idea that people will be yelling at the screen in the hope that they'll be, you know, laughing and screaming so when it all comes together, it's like, that's --
but in the theater, suddenly it began, immediately i understood it was an earthquake, my wife andoo i ld at each other, earthquake. we were fine at that moment, and then it seemed to intensify. and that's the point, i think, that it became more concerning. we and some other folks got up, made our way ton exit, went down several flights, exited on the street level. the intensity made me think we damage.ounter there was no panic. one woman was sobbing and having to be consoled by her husband,
as they made their way out of the theater. now we're all, you know, gathered around televisions watching the coverage here, the news conferences, trying to get an handle o this thing. i think what is alarming for a lot of people in los angeles is what if that epicenter was closer to l.a.? this quake is bigger than the dely northridge quake here back in the '90s. it's a larger magnitude than the rerld series quake in the san francisco bay a back in the '80s. so a great deal of concern as to what would happen if it was closer to los angeles. you can certaiy understand the conversation about are we prepared is ramping up after this weekend. >> lester holt, so glad you are safe. thank you. let's go to molly hunter, i
ridgecrest, from what you've been describing, it's a much different situation where you are, which is the epicenter as compared to people in l.a. and los angeles and even just a few miles away from where you are. >> thas right. i've never experienced anything like this. i was born and raised in california, i was in los angeles for that 6 on thursday, i felt the 5.4 this morning around 4:00 a.m., and nothing compared to the 7.1. r hotel is just over here. pan over so you can see the complete darkness. we're totally out of power. we were sound asleep in our hotels. andib i can't desto you wa waking up to that kind of silent bshaking, just goingk and forth. the curtains came down, it was incredibly terrifying. i'm not sure i've experienced something like that. and we immediately got out of bed.
i was on the first floor, brian was knocked out of bed, my producer was on the second floor, things werenocked off the desk, we ran out of the hotel and went to see the housei , we know that everyone got out safely. but we're at the hospital, there's an emergency command center, and everything is working asd.planne and as prepared. they're incredibly ready for this. we'll just have to wait and see what the fallout is. >> we've all been seeg pictures of the emergency crews that you've described. have you witnessed them searchinghe structures and taking a look at the roads? i know it's dark, so i can't imagine how they're accomplishing all of this that they need to do. but have you seen that? >> we saw it earlier today,
because after the 5.4, everyone was pretty freaked out. and officials said they would have to look at theuiing to see if there was damage not apparent to the naked eye. the wetry is that somng like this, the hospital, that there's internal foundation damage they had evacuated patients on thursday out of an abundance of caution, because of concerns there mig be structural damage. but we haven't seen any emergency vehicles going door to door. it's too tdark. >>nk you so much. we'll have continuing coverage of this quake on
no budget and we have so many sound effects in the show. we had to, sort of, do them all ourselves, really. my mom is one of them -- just is one of them. [ laughter ] >> seth: she's a voice in the show ow>> she's a voice in the and then my sister did the sound design and there's, kind of -- there's like porn sounds during the show so, she had go and create those for us [ laughter ] >> seth: not from scratch. i hope she went to the internet. laughter ] >> she did go to the internet. she came in like - and then the rt we, sort of, created ourselves. >> seth: gotcha. were any of them hard to create or were they pretty -- >> well, there's quite a lot of talk about sex in the show and there was one point that wes wanted a, kind o sound effect that was less, sort of, fireworky than the porn sound effect so, we needed a, kind of, light, sort of, slapping noise. [ laughter ] you know you know[ ughter ] so, we couldn't work out what the right sound was. and we decided -- i don't know how you end in these situations but i ended up in a cupboard with my sister in the dark with my director just gently tapping my bum like this. [ laughter ] anthat's in the show 9:00 every night
>> seth: wow, that's really great. [ cheers and applause do you have any preshow ritual at all >> oh, yeah, yeah. myself and char mcbrearty, our stage manager, we shout "you and me, baby." to each other. i have to shout it and she shouts it back and then for some ason, since we've come to new york, we also shout "bocca di lupo." >> seth: which is, "bocca di lupo?" >> mouth of the wolf >> seth: oh, wowug [ laer ] >> but it's also a really lovely restaurant in london >> seth: oh, well, there you go. >> it's a nice thing to yell >> seth: i like you said some reason, like, you guys didn't come up with i it did feel like that we decided then we were like, oh, no, that's gonna be -- i don't know how long it's going to go on forgo >> seth: that's g to stay. there are obviously -- it's very funny, but there are some real moments of emotional resonance in the show. there's a -- there's a gasp moment in the show certainly when i washere is that something that happens and is that something you're happy when you hear it >> oh, yeah. e that's another one of th moments where you think, "we've still got them." like, even if it's a quiet audience, if it's a gasp -- it's called the guinea pig gasp for
reasons that we'll, you know, you'll have to work out. something happens to the guinea pig. the early previews, i ted it in describing this thing that happens to the guinea pig, and it just wasn't landing with audience and i was doing two or three previews in, and i was like, "io t feel i'm getting a reaction from them." and vicky jones, the director and i, we sat around and i sort of, changed the words a bit, changed the rhythm of what i was saying and then there was one night when i said, "okay, we're going to try it with this new rhythm." and i said, "what happens to the guinea pig?" and the entire audience went - [ gasps and i went - [ gasps [ laughter ] so, now it happens and then last night, actually, i tried something a little bit different and the audience laughed but there was one woman in the audience that, kind of, just -- the gasp went the wrong way and she just ended up screaming. [ laughter ] she said, "ah! [ laughter ] >> seth: you -- because, of course, you adapted and unlike your stage show in which there are no guinea pigs, there are physical guinea pigs in the au television show, bec you run a guinea pig-themed cafe >> yes, yes. >> seth: and i do not believe this is true, but you brought proof in order to get -- when
you wanted to find guinea pigs for the show, they sent you head shots. >> well, yes laughter ] yes. we needed one guinea pig, hillary. and so we had to find her. and, of course, they st us the "a" list >> seth: the best guinea pigs. >> the best guinea pigs. [ laughter ] and they told us -- we spokeano a few handlers, d they sent us these head shots >> seth: and so -- >> we decided they were the equivalent of, lik hollywood stars. >> seth: okay. [ laughter ] >> this is like -- she's like the jennifer lawrence of the guinea pigs. [ laughter ] you can, like, see she's got real depth and also kindf blonde well, this is the emma stone >> seth: emma stone guinea pig clearly got range >> seth: clearly got range you can tell, like, funny and ou se [ light lahter ] >> funny and -- she actually got the job in the end >> seth: oh, she did you went with emma stone>> eah, yeah, emma. i mean, how could you resist this is actually ryan gosling. >> seth: oh. laughter ] i can see that >> the gender is, obviously neutral in our casting so, he didn't quite make the cut. >> seth: gotcha. >> yeah. [ audience ohs ] i know
i mean, i really wanted to give her the gig. but she's not quite right. i'm not going to say who that reminds me of, actually. >> seth: really? you're not [ laughter ] i will say -- i will say this guinea pig looks like it was maybe out a little late. >> yeah. yeah, yeah, yeah [ laughter ] >> seth: and you maybe couldn't quite depend on it showing up on time [ laughter ] >> or when she does, it's really raw and edgy stuff >> seth: and they were like,if you can get her out of her trailer, she's great." [ laughter ] but, like, sometimes she's just -- like she's in the wheel and she's got -- >> yeah, yeah. [ laughter ] >> seth: obviously, you've been a performer and a writer for a very long time you got your start -- one of the things i heard you started with was you wrote an anonymous article in your church paper your local church paper. >> parish magazine >> seth: wow othow did it come up you ghe idea to write for it, and why did you want to be anonymous >> i think because i was saying -- i was about 11 or 12 i think i was exposing quite personal tngs in the family. >> seth: gotcha. >> the main reason i wanted to be anonymous the main storyline -- although i did call it "lifat number 62",
and we lived at number 62. >> seth: okay, gotcha. [ laughter ] >> and i think people wereke - and also, it was mainly kind of hamster adventure-based. >> seth: gotcha. >> news. >> seth: oh, i see >> and we had a hamster. >> seth: your writing has been, sort of, rodent inspired for your whole [ light laughter ] >> i just realized that. [ unintelligible ] my god, this is where it all comes from and then, the news was like -- my hamster was called chops and. he went missin and so, obviously i needed to express and write about that >> seth: yeah. >> so, i wrote it, and shared it with the community and -- >> seth: yeah.wa >> ireally dark. it w like, day, three, still no sign of chops [ laughter ] mom's got edgy >> seth: s it was like "gone girl" but for a hamster. >> yeah, yeah, yeah.
