[ laughter ] >> jimmy: "i get on the wheels of steel, man, you don't know what's going to happen."
[ light laughter ] dope. >> so i'm sitting there with this guy. and then he realized, cause he was talking about his family and wife and how dope his deejay job was, and then he lost track of time and we got about 45 minutes away from where he was supposed to be dropping me off, and he flipped out. he like, totally -- it was a 180. he completely changed, started flipping out. he grabbed the wheel while i was driving. >> jimmy: what? >> and he screamed, "no hesitation!" at the top of his -- [ laughter ] >> jimmy: wait, what he yell? >> "no hesitation!" >> jimmy: no hesitation! >> it was crazy. and now my whole family says that. >> jimmy: no hesitation? >> yeah. >> jimmy: what does that mean? >> i don't know. >> jimmy: no hesitation? >> yeah, he screamed it like a lunatic. and then i told my family and a bunch of my friends, and now we use that all the time. like constantly if anybody's not sure about something, we're just like, "no hesitation!"

[ light laughter ] anyways i'm an awful artist, but that is just pretty awesome. and it's called tim -- tim burton-esque. >> yeah, i thought it was tim burton-esque. >> jimmy: i think that's super cool. and you just decided, you and your friend, like "hey, let's get canvasses and paint." >> yeah, i was at this art store and i randomly bought some canvasses and we just made my house a huge mess. we were in the kitchen, paint was everywhere -- >> jimmy: i love you're splurging now. you're just buying porsche cayenne's -- >> i'm going crazy. >> jimmy: painting. yeah, you're just going nuts. i've got to ask you about this cause this is super cool. thanks for coming on our show, because i know this morning you were in d.c. >> yeah. i got to go to washington, d.c. --

[ laughter ] >> jimmy: what happened? you just started dancing? >> well, we do this thing on "icarly" called random dancing. so we decided to random dance, and we did it for about five minutes. it was no joke. we were on stage dancing for a long time. >> jimmy: oh my goodness. that's pretty weird, right? i'm going to do that next time i see -- i'll be like, "hey, what's up?" [ laughter ] go for it. how do you get the first lady to come on your show? >> well, i guess she watches the show with her daughters. and she noticed that my character, carly on the show, her dad's in the military. and she does all this stuff really supporting military
families. so she decided to come on the show. she approached us about it. it was crazy. >> jimmy: no way. >> it was really exciting. >> jimmy: and how was she on the show? was she great? >> yeah, she's really good. she had a lot of lines. and it was her first time acting, so she said she was a little nervous. >> jimmy: oh my gosh. well, we actually have a clip of the show right now. so here's the first lady on "icarly." we figure it's the perfect time to play our favorite game.

♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: fun, yeah. turtle zip. you guys, our next guest is a very, very funny comedian who is also a writer and producer on "saturday night live." his comedy central special, "new in town" premieres saturday, january 28th at 10:00 p.m, with a dvd and cd out right after. give it up for our pal, john mulaney! ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> hi. how you doing? [ cheers and applause ] hi, thank you. i'm john mulaney. and not a lot of people know this, but for years and years, i was a child. and during that time, i was
always very nervous. i was a really anxious kid. but what's nice, is that now that i'm older, a lot of the things that used to bother me, don't bother me at all anymore. like, i always thought that quicksand was going to be a much bigger problem than it turned out to be. [ laughter ] you watch cartoons, and quicksand is like the third biggest thing you have to worry about in adult life, behind actual sticks of dynamite and giant anvils falling on you from the sky. i got older, not only have i never stepped in quicksand, i've never even heard about it. no one's ever been like, "hey, if you're coming down to visit me, take fifth avenue, cause seventh avenue has a little quicksand right now. i have a girlfriend now. [ cheers and applause ] which is -- yeah. it's cool, but it's weird because i'm probably gay based on the way i act and behave. [ laughter ] and walk and then move my legs in general. i think i was supposed to be gay. i think that's what happened. i think like, up in heaven, they built like three-quarters of a
gay person and then they forgot to flip the final switch and they just sent me out. and they were like, "you marked that one gay, right?" and it was like, "oh, no, was i supposed to?" and they're like, "oh, well this will be a very silly person." [ laughter ] "this is going to be a very interesting person indeed." i was definitely gay when i was a little boy. [ laughter ] a lot of little boys are gay. you know, they're very flowy, and they have hard opinions on things. [ laughter ] i don't mean that i was a sexually active gay man when i was a child, that's not what i'm saying. i was more like a 65-year-old, 70-year-old gay man that's kind of over it sexually. you know what i mean? i was like an old queen. i would just walk out to recess and i would be like, "everybody get out of my way. i just want to sit here and feed my birds." the gym teacher would tell me to play kick ball, and i'd be like, "you want me to do what?" [ laughter ] oh, real quick, i was in a restaurant in new york, and i was in the bathroom and i was at
the urinal, and this old gay man came in with a walker, and he stopped and he looked at me and he said, "i'm either having a drink or i have to pee. you're living the golden years, kid, not me." like, he spoke in rhymes, it was crazy. [ laughter ] it was such a weird interaction i wasn't sure if it actually happened. i walked out and i asked my girlfriend like, "did you see like, an old man go in the bathroom after me?" and she was like, "john, that bathroom's been closed for 40 years." [ light laughter ] whoa! i love my girlfriend very much. she's great. and i listen to everything she says. but i don't mean she bosses me around, i just listen to everything she says, because before i had a girlfriend, i never had someone who's always standing next to me who can just point out obvious things that are happening. [ laughter ] like, we'll be in a restaurant, and my girlfriend will be like, "you ordered your food a half an hour ago, it should be here by now." i'll be like, "yeah, it should." [ laughter ] it's like having a lawyer for everyday life. [ laughter ] she'll be like, "the bus driver shouldn't talk to you like that."
and i'm like, "no, he shouldn't." before i had a girlfriend, i had no standard for how i should be treated as a human being. [ light laughter ] you could do anything to me. i was like a young motown singer. i was just shiny and dumb and easy to trick. [ laughter ] you're like, "you're going to give me a whole $100 for all of my songs? where do i sign, mr. berry gordy?" [ audience ohs ] [ laughter ] now my girlfriend takes care of me, unless i'm not with her. like i'll travel alone sometimes, and then i'll tolerate any treatment. you know, like, i'll travel, i'll book a ticket on some garbage airline. i don't want to name an actual airline, so let's just make one up, let's call it like, delta airlines or something. [ laughter ] so i'll book a ticket on delta airlines, and i'll go to the desk and i'll go, "can i get on the airplane, please?" and they say, "no, it's delayed nine hours." and i go, "okay." and then i go to the bathroom. and then i come back from the bathroom and i say, "any updates?"
and they go, "yeah, we took off while you were in the bathroom, because we hate you. now take this meal voucher. it doesn't work." and i go, "okay." and then i go over to the wolfgang puck garbage express, and i say, "can i have a cold sandwich, please?" and they go, "no!" and i go, "okay." and they go, "you're a little fat girl, aren't you?" and i go, "no!" and they go, "say it!" and i go, "i'm a little fat girl." and then i go over to the delta help desk, which is an oxymoron, and i go, "can i please go home on an airplane?" and they go, "no. in fact, we're going to frame you for murder. [ laughter ] and you're going to go to jail for 30 years." and i say, "why are you doing this to me?" and they say, "because we're delta airlines. and life is a nightmare." but if i was with my girlfriend, she would just be like, "let's see if southwest has any flights."
