wanda sykes. have a good night. >> lou: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live!" tonight -- wanda sykes, michael cera, and music from weezer. and now, jimmy kimmel! [ cheering and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: thank you. how you doing? thank you. hello. i'm jimmy. i'm the host of the show. thanks a lot. thanks for joining us here. you feel that? spring is in the air. people's moods are elevated. spring has broken. yesterday was the first day of
spring, the "vernal equinox." "vernal" meaning "of, in or appropriate to spring," and "equinox" meaning "place that charges you $500 a month to use an elliptical." not that i do. in washington, they're holding a confirmation hearing for joe biden's supreme court nominee. judge ketanji brown jackson appeared before the senate judiciary committee today. unless something unexpected happens, the vote is expected to go along party lines. these hearings give a number of our republican senators a chance to compete in one of their favorite events, the subtle racism jamboree. but senator lindsay graham of south carolina got out ahead of that. he said he expects to be called racist at these hearings and made an interesting comparison when invoking the heated confirmation hearing of justice brett kavanaugh. >> there were headlines all over the country really accusing judge cavanaugh of being basically bill cosby. none of us are going to do that to you. and if any of us does that to
you, all hell will break out, and it should. >> jimmy: ummm, thanks? i guess. i disagree. i actually think they should treat ketanji brown jackson exactly like they treated brett kavanaugh, and interview every single person who has accused her of sexual assault. don't stop, even though there are none. do not stop. judge jackson would be the first black woman on the supreme court. [ cheering and applause ] she could get confirmed without a single republican vote since the vice president is the tie breaker. which would be the gop's ultimate nightmare having this decided by two black women whose names they can't pronounce. senator ted cruz was actually judge jackson's classmate at harvard law school. though she will not likely get his vote. he pontificated at length today about not turning this into a political circus, and worked in a plug for his podcast while saying that. but the big ted story today was i don't know if you've seen this, this was a video shot at
the bozeman, montana airport. in which a man who looks suspiciously like ted cruz has a heated exchange with an airline employee, and then after the airline employee, a police officer. apparently, he missed his flight and demanded to speak to the manager of the airport about a dozen times, to the point where they had to call in security. he should stay out of the airports, right? nothing good ever -- now you can't hear what is being said, but we were able to enhance the audio and this, according to our experts, is a pretty good approximation of what cancun karen was complaining about. >> jimmy: save it for the airplane bathroom, buddy. it's especially funny because just two weeks ago, ted was bragging about how much employees at the airport love him.
>> every week, i fly back and forth to houston. almost without exception, every time i'm on an airplane, either the captain or a flight attendant will come up to me, will hug me and say thank you for fighting for us. >> jimmy: and then immediately throw up. they vomit. there's no way he gets spontaneously hugged. can you imagine hugging ted cruz? donald trump hugs eric more than flight attendants hug ted cruz. all the characters from trump sylvania were out this weekend. remember rudy giuliani? recount dracula has emerged from his crypt for to make an appearance on a newsmax show called "wise guys." i don't know what this show is, but i like any show where the people being interviewed are also eating clams. >> i'm here with my lawyer and special guest for the sit-down, joining the family, america's mayor, rudy giuliani.
rudy, thank you. yeah! thank you. thank you. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: what a show. just rudy having a perfectly normal meeting at an olive garden with three "dick tracy" villains. nothing to see. eventually, they got around to asking rudy who let us not forget was in the middle of trump trying to hold back financial support of the ukrainian military in an effort to get them to make up stories about hunter biden. now, of course, the trump crowd says the war never would have happened under trump, and to explain why, giuliani shared a totally true story about a conversation that definitely happened between donald trump and vladimir putin. >> so he has a meeting with him, and he is telling them. they're talking about ukraine. and he says vladimir, maybe you shouldn't attack ukraine. well, you know, i never liked those -- what are those things
you got in moscow, those big bubbles, the gold bubbles. i never liked those things. so i'm going to have to blow them up. so putin says they're churches. oh, vladimir, don't tell me me tht about churches, dear god. churches. you can fool bush. you can't fool me. churches? thank you. >> jimmy: of all the bs in that story, the most unbelievable part was that there was something gold that trump didn't like. it's impossible. listen, if trump actually blew up things he didn't like, don jr's tenth birthday present would've been a grenade. trump hasn't officially announced if he's running in 2024, but he is running in 2024, and the pundits have already started crunching the numbers. according to a new poll by yahoo, trump leads biden by 43 points among unvaccinated voters. who might not even make it to te election. but you know trump. he loves the poorly vaccinated. they're not the only group that is solidly pro-trump.
he is also an overwhelming favorite among fireworks stand operators, iguana breeders, disgraced mall santas, manufacturers of husky golf pants, and former crackhead pillow salesmen. [ applause ] trump has not been -- i think he has a cold because his voice sounds funny. trump called into fox business channel this morning to say a bnch of dumb things about climate change, he again brought up windmills. and, of course, he had unkind words when it came to reviewing joe biden's performance when it comes to his buddy putin. >> he doesn't mix it up. he doesn't -- look, it's very sad to watch. i've watched it. i've seen it. but i listen to him constantly using the n-word. that's the n-word. and he is constantly using it, the nuclear word. >> jimmy: no, no, no. that's not the n-word. that's a different. spoken like a man who has no black friends. i'd love to hear what he thinks the f word is. if that's the n-word.
meanwhile, you remember that big truck convoy that was heading to washington from all points to protest the vaccine mandates, even though the mandates have been lifted pretty much everywhere now? that hasn't stopped the maga warriors continuing this trek towards d.c., which has been slow going, partly thanks to a very clever bicyclist. [ applause ] >> jimmy: that is what they call "poetry in motion." normally i hate bikers in traffic, but that one i love. i mentioned last week that mcdonald's is one of a number of u.s. companies that has opted to shut down operations in russia. they had around 850 restaurants there. and now, there are none. so a russian burger chain called uncle vanya's is capitalizing, ironically, they just filed to trademark this logo. that looks like a mcdonald's that got knocked on its side?
some have pointed out correctly that it is very similar to not only mcdonald's, but also, mcdowell's, from the movie "coming to america?" they'd better watch out. they could get sued by mcdonald's and eddie murphy. you don't want that. but there is a lot of demand for big macs and mcnuggets and such, and so uncle vanya and company are already making a big splash over there. >> mcdonald's pulled out of russia? goodbye, yankee clown food. now it's uncle vanya's. uncle vanya has same high quality food and meat and vodka cola, the real thing. bring kids for cool smiling meal. comes with toy. uncle vanya's, badabadaba. i'm dealing with it. >> jimmy: i think it's refreshing to see the russians trying to steal something other
than our elections for a change. back here in the states, the "don't say gay" nonsense, not only has it become a hot-button topic when it comes to schools, all of a sudden, it is affecting the animal community too. >> tonight, a local dog shelter -- or a local shelter dog is looking for a soft landing after being dumped by his owners because they say he is gay. >> a stanly county animal shelter facebook post says the dog's owner surrendered him to the shelter after he humped another male dog. >> jimmy: a male dog humping a male dog doesn't make him gay, it makes him a dog. in this situation, can we put the owner down? is that possible? [ applause ] thank you, guillermo. >> guillermo: you're welcome, jimmy. >> jimmy: for your support over the years. >> guillermo: always, jimmy, always. >> jimmy: a tradition we haven't done in a long time because of covid and lawsuits like that, we haven't done it in quite some time. we have done hit the year. runners around the world ran the
37th annual l.a. marathon. and with that said, look who is back, cousin sal. here he is. the return of cousin sal at the l.a. marathon. ♪ >> cousin sal here at the 37th running of the l.a. marathon. i'm way too fat and out of shape to run this thing, but that doesn't mean i can't help the tens of thousand men and women make their way to the finish line. watch. who wants it? who's got it? come on, come on, come on! come on, it's right to you! marathon brady. oh, why would i ever throw to you again? that was disgraceful. are you even running? are you even in this? all right. that was good.
go, go win this thing! hey, bear, hey bear, hey bear! i'm exhausted, by the way. you know what people need after 11 miles of running? turkey legs. who wants turkey legs? >> i'm vegan! >> turkey leg, yeah. gluten-free. covid free. does your bird want a bite of a turkey? that seems weird. whoa, all right. it wasn't a good idea. who is feeling covidy? we have a bucket of sanitizer. hollywood is kind of filthy. you want some? there you go, there you go. there you go. beautiful. oh, son of a -- quiet, please, quiet, please. a grandmother is sleeping. she had a rough night. three boxes of wine. let's just keep it down, okay? thank you. she loves them. these are her favorite, now and
later. thank you. quiet. she is sleeping. >> why is she sleeping? >> no, she passed away wednesday. good luck, though. no, i'm good. i'm good. thank you. "i'm a nurse," she says. here we go, limbo break! you don't step under it. this guy knows. do it, do it, do it. how low can you go? good lord, how is this going to happen? oh, you got it, big nigh. oh, he did it. quiet, please! trying to sleep in here. can you help us out with a survey? how satisfied are you with this year's marathon? >> very satisfied. >> how would you rate the route compared to other marathons you've run? better than most? average? did you experience any unexpected interruptions? >> no. >> very good.
do you think you'll have a heart attack before the conclusion? >> i hope not. >> i'm going to put down yes. thank you, more. anybody want to push my grandmother to the finish line? you'll do it? she doesn't have a lot of time left. go, go, grandma, go! [ applause ] don't forget me in the will! ♪ >> jimmy: thank you. we've got a good show tonight. michael cera is here. we'll be right back with wanda sykes. >> abc's "jimmy kimmel live!" brought to you by canva.

[ cheering and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: how are you? >> i'm doing okay, jimmy. how you doing? >> jimmy: i'm doing well. you know, they shut down the whole neighborhood for you and your show on sunday. >> i just saw that. it's crazy. >> jimmy: that's when it sinks in that it's a big event. they have to actually close the neighborhood because of all the media that converges here. >> i guess it's a big deal, huh. >> jimmy: how did they ask you? who asked you? when did it take and how long did it take for you to reply? >> wow. okay. so, you know, i'm at work, and i'm working on the upshaw, because we're in production right now for season 2. >> jimmy: right. >> so i'm -- we're rehearsing that. and then on the side i'm doing ntes for history of the world

>> it's less than that? >> jimmy: yeah. i got paid $15,000 to host the oscars. >> oh my god. >> jimmy: and there is one of me. >> yeah, we probably have to split that. >> jimmy: which, you know, it sounds like a lot for one night, but it's months of work leading up to it. >> yes, yes. it's a lot of work. >> jimmy: you're getting robbed. hold out right now because they need host, you know. >> well, i already decided. i'm just going to steal an oscar. that's all. >> jimmy: you -- yeah, that happens. >> yeah. >> jimmy: when you're hosting with two other people, how do you decide who does what? like will you do a monologue together or just all shout out your jokes and whoever is the loudest wins? >> we tried that. >> jimmy: yeah? >> we tried that, see who was the loudest, and i won. >> jimmy: you did? >> yeah, i'm the loudest. but, no, we're going share a monologue at the top of the show. and then you'll see us in different, you know, either we'll be together. it might be two of us, might be

joking. so they got real upset. >> jimmy: what happened? what was the scenario? >> oh, it was so stupid. i think we were talking about me being from toronto. and you said oh, yeah, you grew up in toronto. and somebody in the audience went maple leafs. and i went yeah, yeah, maple leafs. and you asked and i'm sorry, jimmy, i lost my train of thought. so i stared the person down for a listening beat, waiting for the audience to laugh at some point. and they never did. and i guess you moved us along. >> jimmy: that's what we do. >> that night i watched the broadcast, and the moment had been snipped out. and i was so relieved and grateful. >> jimmy: oh, good. >> i can't describe the relief. i was waiting for that moment. and you saved me. well, hey, listen, i'm a good snipper, if nothing else. if you need a circumcision, i can do that too. >> i do. i'll say it.

>> jimmy: you're here with paul rudd. let's take a look. i think we have a photo from that. >> oh my god! >> jimmy: you were so young, so little back then. just a kid. just a little one. and you've grown so much. since "superbad." >> i just want to say because i hear people laughing and stuff. that clearly is doctored. >> jimmy: the photograph? >> yes. >> jimmy: no, i don't think it was. >> okay, well. >> jimmy: actually, you know what happened? we made me and paul much bigger is what it was. >> you guys are huge. >> jimmy: and that was your when you did "superbad," which was your first big movie, obviously. >> yeah. >> jimmy: do you even remember that experience? >> yeah. >> jimmy: or is it something that went by like your childhood. >> it's a long time ago, but yeah, i remember it. one of the main memories of doing that movie is on one of the very first days of shooting, i fell out of a tree. this was not during shooting.
it was just during recreational time. i was climbing in a tree. and one of the trunks that to me seemed like a pretty sturdy trunk just came right off. and i went down with it. and something hit me on the way down and cut my lip open. so for the first few weeks of that movie, i was dealing with a cut lip and i couldn't smile or anything. i had a new girlfriend at the time and i was hanging out with her and never smiling. always looking very dour and telling her it's just my lip. >> jimmy: maybe that's what she dug about you. a lot of guys can't pull that off, really. >> she thought i had depth. >> jimmy: the injuries are what stick with you the most. >> yeah, you don't forget a thing like that. i've had a bunch. >> jimmy: you're very selective about what you do. and you did some -- you were nominated for a tony award. >> yeah. >> jimmy: which play was it you were nominated for a tony? >> which play? >> jimmy: yeah. >> it was a play called lobby
hero. >> jimmy: is that the play you did with kieran culkin? >> no, that was another "this is our youth". >> jimmy: and you're close friends? >> kieran is one of my best friends. we did that several times together. we did it in australia at the sidney opera house. he and i bonded early on over both being degenerate gamblers. >> jimmy: what is your preferred? i know you play poker. sports? >> anything, really. >> jimmy: anything? >> yeah. i'll bet on two cockroaches running up the wall. >> jimmy: really? >> but me and kieran would blow through all our per diem. we had all this orange australian movie. at one point we stopped playing for money and started playing for humiliations. we started doing push-ups on demand, which you get a bank of push-up, whoever won, i would have 100 push-ups that i can make him do, but only in 20 push-up increments.
and you have to wait a little while after before you could make him do more. you could do it at any time. we would be out to dinner and the food would arrive and i'd be okay, i need 20 push-ups. >> jimmy: who he do them? >> couldn't do them on show on the stage. >> jimmy: this is at a restaurant? >> yeah, a restaurant. >> jimmy: so roman from "succession" is doing push-ups inside cheesecake factory or something like that? >> yeah. i mean, i haven't gone to cheesecake factory in a while. i had a bad food poisoning experience there. actually, that was during "superbad." it almost shut the production down. >> jimmy: what a mess that movie was for you. >> i ordered something like on page 15. the endless menu. i ordered a chinese dish. >> jimmy: it's larger than bible. >> i don't mean to besmirch cheesecake factory on live tv. it just came out. maybe you could snip this. >> jimmy: the way i see it, i know you're even.
>> i mean, you brought them up. >> jimmy: by the way, i started watching "life and beth." and i knew you were on the show. so i start watching it. i watch the first two episodes. there has been some mistake. he is is not on this show. >> yeah. i hope you push through. i come later on. >> jimmy: and then you showed up, and there you are, yeah. >> i've been telling them they should put some disclaim attorney early episodes. he is coming later. >> jimmy: my first thing was like oh, he is lying. he is pretending he is on this show, and how sad that is. >> just to get on here. >> jimmy: you want to talk about the character you play on this show? >> i'd love to, yeah. i play a character named john who's romantic interest for amy schumer. >> jimmy: the love interest for amy schumer. >> i know it's hard to believe. >> jimmy: i don't know. stranger things have happened. >> that's true. >> jimmy: i'm not going to reveal anything, because i think it is fun to see what's happening along the way on the show. >> yeah. i agree. >> jimmy: you are covered in blood when you meet amy for the first time. >> yeah. >> jimmy: or beth. >> beth. >> jimmy: is the character name.
>> exactly. >> jimmy: would be appropriate. and did you know amy beforehand? >> well, actually, not really. i had met amy at -- we were -- she was nominated for a tony as well. and we met at a tony's luncheon the year we were both nominated. and we kind of exchanged numbers, but i had left the country that night. i went to the uk to promote a project that i was promoting. and amy had texted me that night saying hey, we're all going to go to karaoke, why don't you come? but i didn't get the message until i landed back in the country. and i didn't recognize the number so i ignored it and deleted the text. a couple of years later she texted me and said hey, why did you never respond to me? i never got a text from you? who are you? verified who she was and kind of put it together. retroactively. no, i'd never really known her. she wrote this part and offered it to me and i was lucky to get in there. >> jimmy: you played hard to get
and she had a thirst for you she couldn't contain. >> sometimes it works out that way. >> jimmy: sometimes it does. the no smiling thing you did with that girlfriend. very smooth is what i'm saying. >> well, that relationship didn't pan out or anything. but. >> jimmy: well, the show has panned out, certainly. i know it's getting great reviews, and i really enjoy watching it. >> good. i'm glad you like it. >> jimmy: i look forward to seeing what happens along the way. if you watch the first two episodes, michael is not in it. did you get paid for the first two though you're not in them? >> i don'tknow. >> jimmy: we'll get wanda's agent on it. >> i can get the details for the closing monologue. >> jimmy: yes. if you don't mind, wait until after weezer and we'll come back and announce. >> i'll get you the announce >> jimmy: michael cera, everybody.
