12:37 am
music from paramore featuring the 8g band. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ and now, here he is, seth meyers. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ seth: good evening, everyone. [ cheers and applause ] i'm seth meyers. this is "late night." how's everybody doing tonight? doing well? [ cheers ] is everybody well? let's start off tonight with a little celebrity news. a fan has posted a video of drake using a lint roller on his pants at a toronto raptors game. [ laughter ] it's interesting. see, when i use a lint roller, i do my jacket first, but drake started from the bottom. [ laughter ] that's what that song is about.
12:38 am
it's about slacks maintenance. i love this. a kansas man on trial for first-degree murder wants to remove a tattoo across his neck reading "murderer" because he's worried it might prejudice the jury. [ laughter ] though, he might be able to create reasonable doubt by just adding a question mark. [ laughter and applause ] murderer? murder? anybody here see "frozen"? [ cheers and applause ] well, the academy award winning couple who wrote songs for "frozen" told npr yesterday that disney doesn't welcome religious themes in their movies. of course, the movie "frozen" still promotes religion because i've been praying for months to
12:39 am
get the song "let it go" out of my head. [ laughter and applause ] it's ironic, because the title of that song is the one thing you can't do with that song. [ laughter ] this is interesting. the pentagon has unveiled a 6'2" robot modelled after the terminator that it plans to use for search and rescue missions. that way, instead of slowly dying in the rubble of a collapsed building you can immediately die of a heart attack. [ laughter and applause ] "oh, thank god. someone's coming to save me." [ laughter ] i need a minute. i put my whole body into acting out that short one-act play. i went into very deep character. find seth meyers again. [ laughter ] we love new studies here at
12:40 am
"late night." we're huge fans of new studies, and a new study suggests that when women are ovulating, they are more attracted to musicians who can create complex music. and when they're not ovulating, they're attracted to nickelback. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] here's some international news. china's state media has announced that it's "cleaning the web" campaign has successfully shut down 110 porn websites. that's like new york city announcing that they're "cleaning the subway" campaign has successfully exterminated one rat. [ laughter ] "we got him. we got the rat." the center for disease control claims that 80% of people with herpes don't know they have the disease. but there is a quick test you can do. do you drive a camaro?
12:41 am
[ laughter ] i'm not sure what to make of this. the detroit metropolitan airport has unveiled indoor patches of grass -- indoor patches of grass that serve as toilets for service dogs. and the new york subway continues to offer hundreds of square miles of tile that serve as toilets for everybody. [ laughter and applause ] "we got the rat! and every place is a toilet." things are looking up for the new york city subway. [ light laughter ] an artisanal lollipop company has launched a new line of beer-flavored lollipops. beer-flavored lollipops. more troubling than the thought of a beer-flavored lollipop is the fact that there's an artisanal lollipop company. [ laughter ]
12:42 am
"mother, what is this tripe? a dum-dum? [ laughter ] i asked for an artisanal lollipop! you are the dumb dumb, mother. i'm a fancy boy and i demand artisanal lollipops." [ laughter and applause ] a new study by loma linda university in california found that laughter can help increase memory function, which explains why my ex-girlfriends say that sex with me was such a memorable experience. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] i don't remember them as well, because i was crying. [ laughter ] this is insane. a woman in los angeles told
12:43 am
abc's "nightline" that she spent $15,000 on plastic surgery so she would look better in selfies. and i bet she was angry when she learned she could have just done this -- [ laughter ] this in $15,000 or this for free. and finally, the buffalo bills this week lost a class action lawsuit to their fans and will have to pay a $3 million settlement. that's right the buffalo bills are so bad, they even lose to their fans. [ laughter ] ladies and gentlemen, the 8g band! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: how are we doing, 8g band? is everybody good? it's great to see you all. welcome back, eleanor. thanks for joining us.
12:44 am
fred armisen not with us tonight, but we are -- you know, we miss him, but we're doing great without him. we miss him. uh -- he has not been communicating very well with me this week, less and less every day. i think -- i'm like 90% sure he joined a cult. [ laughter ] i just think that's what happened. i look forward to hearing him explain it when he gets back. but, uh -- as of right now, i think he's probably in a cult. last night, we had a really fun show. author and sportswriter jonah keri was here. he wrote a great book about the montreal expos, and we had him on. it was really fun. he told a lot of great stories. and before the show, i went back and said hello and he brought me this. he brought me a montreal expos yarmulke. and he did that because he thought i was jewish. i'm not jewish. a lot of people -- not everybody thinks i'm jewish, but every single jewish person thinks that i'm jewish. [ laughter ] and it's not their fault because
12:45 am
they think that -- they come to that conclusion because of my face and my name and everything about me. [ laughter ] you can't blame them for that. my father's father was jewish, so i'm not jewish. and it's weird, because when jewish people think i'm jewish, they're very excited about it. and i don't want to say, like, "oh, no, i'm not jewish." because when you say that, you sound like somebody trying to get into a 1950s country club. [ laughter ] it's just not an attractive thing to say. and i love the idea of being jewish, and i'm very pro jewish. i can prove it, because i -- i married a jewish woman. my wife alexi is jewish, and we got married this summer under a huppa. and were there yarmulkes at my wedding? there were. were there montreal expos yarmulkes? there were not. [ laughter ] i wish there had been. but it's funny. when i first met alexi's parents, they were -- they thought i was jewish as well, and they were very excited about that. so then when i had to tell them that i wasn't jewish, they were very disappointed. over the course of five years, i won them over. and especially, you know, when i
12:46 am
proposed to their daughter, they were very excited about that. and i realize they just came to the conclusion that i was jewish enough. [ laughter ] and i realize it's the only religion where that sort of happens, and it makes sense that it's the only religion that ends with ish. [ laughter ] it's true. [ cheers and applause ] i'm sure i'm not the first person who's made this observation, but i feel like -- now, when her friends ask my mother-in-law, like, "is that the jew?" she's like, "he's jew-ish." [ laughter ] and i love -- i will say, i am proudly jew-ish and i cannot wait for next year's passover, a holiday i now celebrate, where i wear my montreal expos yarmulke and am told by my wife to take it off. [ laughter ] because it looks ridiculous. we have such a great show for you tonight. the host of cnn's "parts unknown," anthony bourdain is here. [ cheers and applause ] a man with fascinating stories, fascinating experiences.
12:47 am
we're also going to be talking to a very funny -- the very funny colin quinn, one of my favorite comedians of all time and a good friend. [ cheers and applause ] and music from paramore. [ cheers and applause ] they're going to be outstanding tonight. absolutely outstanding. now, real quick, does anyone here use instagram? [ cheers and applause ] now for those of you who don't know, instagram is an app that lets you take great pictures of anything from food to dogs and that's it. [ light laughter ] the best part about instagram is that it has filters. for example -- here's a picture of me in my office. okay? now, let's use the inkwell filter on this. and just like that, i can be in any student film. [ laughter ] well, we here at "late night" decided to come up with some filters of our own. for instance, here's a picture of a happy family. and now, let's apply the lifetime original movie filter. [ laughter ]
12:48 am
as you can see, this filter softens the image, but what's harder to see is that the lifetime filter also gives the father a devastating secret that will tear this family apart! [ laughter and applause ] this is a nice one. let's start with a picture of a young couple. and let's see what happens when we use the new back from vacation filter. [ laughter ] oh, looks like they forgot to pack their sunscreen. all right, moving on. we have a picture of a young lady playing frisbee. all right, let's use hbo's new "girls" filter, and she's topless. [ laughter ] and you know what, while we're at it, let's throw on the hbo "game of thrones" filter. there you are. [ cheers and applause ] on "game of thrones," they go double topless. this next one is a picture of a well-dressed businessman. let's use the beard filter, which i'm assuming puts a beard on him.
12:49 am
oh, okay. [ laughter ] different kind of beard. that's probably a helpful filter when you're sending pictures to your grandparents. this next picture is of a college party. all right, let's see what happens when we throw on the new family-friendly filter. okay, there you are. [ laughter ] no, no, that doesn't look like how you use a microscope. and finally, here's a picture of a man at the summit of a mountain. and let's try it out with instagram's new instagram filter. i wonder what that could be. there you go. [ laughter ] the core of every instagram photo. we hope you liked our filters. we'll be right back with more "late night" after this.

1:08 am
>> yeah. "can i have a spider roll?" no. but it's -- seriously, if i had to check out, that would be the meal. right after that last bite. if i had to go, i would not -- as i fell, leaking to the ground, breathing my last -- i would think, "well, you know, i have no regrets about what i was eating." >> seth: you know who would have regret? the person who's sitting next to you. [ laughter ] >> right. >> seth: who had this amazing meal and then had to watch you die. of all the days to come to the place. >> if it happened to the guy next to me and i was halfway through my meal. >> seth: yeah. >> the food is so good, i think i'd stick around. >> seth: that is very high praise. now, you have a family, a wife and daughter. do you travel with them? you travel so much for work, what do you guys do for family time. >> you know, my daughter's in school now, so i can really only take her out of school maybe once per season. last year, i took her to tokyo.

[ laughter ] >> that's how they treat you as an irish guy -- >> seth: oh, that's how they get you. now, what made you do a show about the constitution? why did you decide to address this as a topic? >> um, because i never really -- i never really understood why everybody thought it was such a brilliant document. everybody who doesn't get along, left, right -- the whole country doesn't agree on anything, but they all love the constitution. so i said i'll do a show about it, and try change that. make everyone hate it. [ laughter ] >> seth: when you do a show, because again, i think when you say the left and the right -- certain people love parts of the constitution, other people love other parts. when you tour this around the whole country -- >> right. >> seth: are there different parts of the country that respond differently? >> yeah, like the second
1:18 am
amendment in the south, they just look at me like, "where are you going with it." you know what i mean? in the north, they get touchy about the president, when i talk about president obama. you know, it depends where you are. >> seth: right. >> everyone's got their little, uh -- what do you call it? chivalettes? i don't think that's the right word. [ laughter ] >> seth: but it is still what i call it. >> it's such a big word i figured everybody would be like "i don't know what it means, but it's close enough." >> seth: now, this is love because this is true. people -- and sometimes people come up do you with ideas. and someone after one of your shows approached you with an idea. and that's -- >> people come up -- these people came up to me after the show. good looking couple. it's not like a sex story or anything. they come up and hand me this folder. they go "when you have a chance, get back to us when you can." they're not in show business, but they have this idea for qvc for me. they don't work for qvc, right? they drove an hour, nice people, seem normal. here's how they schmooze me. it's a yoga thing. like a regular guy like me. regular guy, yoga guy. only for qvc, right?
1:19 am
sounds like, not the worst idea. not that i would need them to come up with that idea, right? here's how they're going to charm me into doing it. this is my -- they wrote this dialogue for me to speak. this is the yoga tape. hi, guys. to the audience here. all right, i know what you're thinking, what's a middle-aged, irish guy who has hair that looks like it was swiped off a sweaty 10-year-old on ritalin who believes no one will notice his paunch if he wears oversized shirts that look like rejects from an '80s resale shop -- [ laughter ] -- and who talks like he's got a mouth full of oreos which, in fact, usually happens to be the case. [ laughter ] what's a guy like that doing teaching yoga of all things and why should i listen to such an ugly, out of shape bastard anyway? it goes on. this is their -- they thought i was going to read this. and go, "i got to call these people." [ laughter ] >> seth: it's nice that they made the effort. i like their --
1:20 am
and then we'll print it up, and we'll get it. honey, get me an envelope. a nice manila envelope. >> they're like, "hey, say it in his voice, what do you think about this?" we call him an ugly, out of shape bastard. >> seth: oh, he'll love that. he'll love that. >> my people. >> seth: they're your people? what's wrong with the political climate in our country right now, in your opinion? >> um, well, i just feel like the left and right are both, you know -- just everybody's just down the line hyper -- like there's no middle ground. like somebody like me who's pro-gun, pro-gay marriage, pro-choice, pro-death penalty. anti-overcrowding would be that platform. [ laughter ] you know. so, you know, everybody's always like, nobody's -- you can't really have opinions that fluctuate from your party. >> seth: and as much as people talk about the constitution, have you found -- do you think a lot of people have actually read it? >> yeah, it's only four pages. so, i mean, so a lot of people have read it. but it's like the bible, everyone takes it and twists it to what they want it to mean.
1:21 am
but that's what it's supposed to be anyway. >> seth: you are -- moving on real quick. you're one of my favorite people on twitter. i feel like you tweet to make people -- a lot of people tweet to make people happy. i think you tweet to make people very frustrated. you tweet in a tone that i feel like people don't believe is sincere. >> it's ridiculous. >> seth: like, for instance, these are recent tweets. thought for the day, wouldn't this world be better if all the banks were comedy clubs and currency was laughter? [ laughter ] >> i think it's a -- >> seth: i don't know, it doesn't seem like -- >> that was from this morning. beautiful day, spring. >> seth: here's another one. funny, we take the train to the gym, but then we train at the gym. i don't know, there's something there. [ laughter ] you don't want to do the work. you made the observation. >> there's too much irony in the world today. i like to get sincere once in a while. >> seth: yeah, sincere. now, this, i'm going to bring
1:22 am
going this up, because this is from 2012. but -- because you involved me in it, and i feel like i have the right to bring this up. eddie murphy and brett ratner pulled out of hosting and producing the oscars, and you took to twitter on behalf of us to replace them. >> right, i was going to be the writer, you were the performer. >> seth: yes. and i should say this is right around the jerry sandusky/penn state scandal. >> that's tragic. >> seth: that was tragic. yet you tweeted, first you opened -- just got news about eddie murphy dropping out. i'm here, seth meyers is here, what the eff? is there problem i don't know about? you couldn't believe they didn't want us to do it. >> yeah. >> seth: then you started tweeting ideas. i have seth meyers come out wearing joe paterno glasses. oh, sorry, i'm looking for sandusky, is this the kids choice awards? [ audience ohs ] [ applause ] >> they hijacked my account that day. >> seth: no, i don't think. because you followed it up immediately. you predicted correctly, because, much like our audience, you wrote -- then if the audience starts
1:23 am
booing, it sets off a sensor that releases a bunch of tomatoes from the ceiling that ruins everybody's outfits. >> yeah. well, i actually -- it's funny you bring that up, because i'm thinking for this show, you want to get a viral video. hot viral videos. nobody watches shows, they watch it the next day on youtube. so, i was thinking, you should have things that you don't know, accidental things on show. the writers should be taking care of this. but, you know, i'll be glad to. [ laughter ] you could have like -- you know how baby videos are hot? >> seth: yeah. >> you get real -- the babies from those videos, and you interview them. [ laughter ] >> seth: right. >> same with cats. you know, bring a cat out. talk to the owner, obviously. can't talk to a cat. >> seth: you can't talk about a baby either. hold on. how come you have all the logic on the cats. the baby's just loose. i just got a loose baby here? >> yeah, it would be funny to say, baby -- you're like "hey, come on." [ laughter ] well, you do stuff -- provocative stuff. you have the security have all the ushers in like, nazi arm bands one day.
1:24 am
and you don't know about it. you're like, "hey, what are you wearing those for?" and it goes viral the next day. >> seth: it goes viral. i think that you think viral is like, a synonym for good. i don't think it's always -- [ laughter ] i think things can go viral in a bad way. >> i'll tell what you i'd really like to talk about tonight. fred, okay? fred? fred? where's fred, you know? oh, he's not here. okay. show's been on for like three, four years, so i guess -- oh, no, it's been on for like a couple months. >> seth: yeah. >> fred just takes off whenever he wants. it's like, well, he's shooting a series too. that's fine. he's not at the series. he's at the stupid moontower festival where i'm going tomorrow in austin. what kind of a -- you got to start cracking the whip around here. [ applause ] david letterman didn't give paul schaffer a day off til, like five years. >> seth: that's very good. i think i may want to bring you on in some sort of producorial capacity. you've had nothing but good ideas since you came out here. >> thank you. >> seth: colin quinn, everybody.
