[ cheers and applause ] that is good to hear. it's a real nice energy in the house tonight. a real nice energy. can you guys feel this really nice energy? yeah, that's good. okay, good. the band concurs. guys, i want to get started with some political news. after vetoing the keystone xl pipeline bill, president obama has passed george washington's total number of vetoes while in office. which is crazy, because obama's dealing with the same congress. [ laughter ] a lot of those guys were old when they started, so -- president obama's former press secretary jay carney will reportedly become a senior vice president at amazon. a senior vice president at amazon. carney says he's excited to work for someone who doesn't take six years to deliver. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ]
12:39 am
this is exciting. any npr fans here? [ cheers ] today is the 45th anniversary of npr, and i hear the party got pretty crazy. [ laughter ] terry gross put a little extra agave nectar in her green tea. sarah koenig drunk dialed adnan. that's never good. ira glass wore a red cardigan. it was insane. [ laughter ] you're going the opposite -- i'm now going to shift to the opposite of npr. picture what the opposite of npr is, because that's where i'm shifting with this next joke. the kardashian family -- [ laughter ] oh! oh, i just did a 180, and i threw my neck out. [ laughter ] the kardashian family has signed a deal keeping them on the air for four more years and paying them $100 million. [ audience ohs ]
12:40 am
$100 million. so let that be a lesson. if you really work hard -- [ laughter ] -- and apply yourself, you are wastg your time. [ cheers and applause ] you are wasting your time. they're not giving away money for that anymore. eddie redmayne -- any eddie redmayne fans here? [ cheers ] yeah. i've been told i look like a young eddie redmayne. [ laughter ] eddie redmayne, who just won an oscar for his portrayal of stephen hawking, will provide the voice of a train in a new installment of "thomas the tank engine." [ laughter ] i just hope he doesn't get typecast as someone who can only play characters with wheels. [ audience oohs ] [ applause ]
12:41 am
do you guys remember rob ford? [ scattered cheers ] so does he most mornings. former toronto mayor rob ford is auctioning off the tie he wore when he admitted to using crack cocaine. and the money is going to a really good cause. i'm just kidding. it's going to crack. [ laughter and applause ] it's going to go straight to crack. this is impressive, if you believe in charitable contributions. a man in texas has embarked on a 300 mile bike ride to raise money for planned parenthood. though, if you spend -- you know, if you spend that much time sitting on a bike seat -- [ laughter ] you'll never need planned parenthood. [ applause ]
12:42 am
there's a new -- there's a whole new plan. for sitting on a bike that long. this is interesting. the plastic surgeons, just shifting trends, it turns out. plastic surgeons are reporting more women are now turning away from breast augmentation in favor of butt enlargement. and instead of going to plastic surgeons, they're just going to cheesecake factory. [ laughter ] it's just cheaper. it's outpatient. cheesecake factory, we're outpatient. this week in pittsburgh, a woman was arrested for driving drunk on her way to an orgy. just a tip, next time, don't tell the police where you are going. that's probably how they knew you were drunk. is there a problem, officer? i really got to get to my orgy. if you show up late, all the best parts are gone.
12:43 am
[ laughter ] oh, am i late? ohh, gary's the only one left. it's always gary. i always get stuck with gary at the orgies. [ laughter ] hey, i can hear you. shut up, gary! in response to complaints about bad travel experiences, the ceo of spirit airlines said people shouldn't come to spirit if they want lots of leg room. he said, we call it spirit airlines because there's only enough room for your spirit. [ laughter ] and if i'm being honest, even that's going to get a little crushed. police in florida -- yeah. [ applause ] police in florida are searching for someone who stole 360,000 nickels during a house party.
12:44 am
police believe the suspect is almost to the end of the street. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] cool dude, though, that's rocking 18 grand in nickels. [ laughter ] yeah, i'm having a party. yeah, you can come check out my nickels. and finally, finally tonight -- this is it. this is the end of the show. [ laughter ] we're going to wrap it up. and finally, astronomers say they've discovered a black hole 12 billion times larger than the sun. it's called netflix. ladies and gentlemen, this is the 8g band. ♪ [ cheers and applause ]
12:45 am
>> seth: how are you, 8g band? sounds great over there, as always. fred, so lovely to see you. such an exciting night. our friend, will forte is coming out. a guy we've known forever. and, fred, you know, i've known you forever. and one of the greatest things about knowing you as long as i have, fred, is every single night i come out here and i find out something new about you. and i -- you know, i don't want to over-flatter you. i am so impressed by you and your accomplishments. and the only thing -- [ laughter ] and what troubles me is it's so hard to believe how many things you have going on that i sometimes worry people at home watch and they think you might be making it up off the top of your head. you know? [ laughter ] and i know -- i know you wouldn't do that. we're really close friends. but is this true? did you -- have you started a walking tour of new york city? have you started your own walking tour of new york city? >> fred: i did. [ laughter ] and it starts in penn station, and the tour is really -- it's
12:46 am
within three feet. [ laughter ] so, it's right dead center, and you walk in circles. but there's a lot of explaining throughout. so i talk a lot about new york and its history. and, you know, how it got started and everything. but we walk in this three-foot radius. >> seth: so, that seems counterintuitive, because if you're talking about new york, you're in new york, wouldn't people rather walk around and see the things you're talking about instead of walking in a tight circle in what many say is the worst building in the city? >> fred: all the other buildings are distractions. they won't be listening to what i'm saying. so if we do this, at least, you know, they can really focus on the words that i'm saying about new york city. >> seth: are they wearing headphones or are you talking out loud for them to hear? >> fred: a combination of the two. it's headphones, but it's like a microphone connected right directly into their ear. it's like a -- it's a long cone. [ laughter ] and the trick to it is we walk really briskly. really, really quickly. so it's kind of like a running tour of manhattan.
12:47 am
>> seth: okay. now, i'm just thinking about a tight three-foot circle, fred. and again, i don't want to tell you how to run your business. [ laughter ] i'm thinking, when i think about this, i'm thinking one, two, three revolutions, i'm pretty dizzy. >> fred: well, to counter that, we just go counterclockwise right afterwards, so it balances out. >> seth: i don't think that's how dizzy works. i don't think if you go really fast this way and then go the other way, i don't think you're just fine. i think you're twice as dizzy. >> fred: we'll see. we'll see. i mean, i -- [ laughter ] that's the test of it. >> seth: so how many people can you do it with at once? >> fred: it's one at a time and you have to take turns. so if you have family or whatever, you just got to wait, and then i'll do the next one. >> seth: how long does the whole tour take? >> fred: it's a two-hour tour. [ laughter ] >> seth: and fred, if i'm looking online for fun things to do in new york city, what do i google search for this tour? >> fred: baskin-robbins ice cream. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ]
12:48 am
>> seth: all right, we've got an excellent show for you tonight. as i mentioned, fred and my good friend, will forte is here. [ cheers ] he has a new television show and it is fantastic. another great new television show is the netflix series "the unbreakable kimmy schmidt." and the very funny ellie kemper will be with us tonight. [ cheers ] and we will have music from a great band, sleater-kinney. it's going to be a great show this evening. i can guarantee it. now, moving on real quick, here at "late night," we love slogans. we are slogan heads here. so many fun slogans out there. a couple of examples. kay jewelers' slogan is, "every kiss begins with kay." factually correct. i love it. maxwell house, "good to the last drop." sure was. drank it all. thank you, maxwell house. ebay, "buy it, sell it, love it." i did, i did and i do. well, we think why -- why should only products have slogans? everything could benefit from one. so we came up with some for you in a segment that we call "new
12:49 am
slogans." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: let's start it off with a slogan for tapas, those delightfully small plates. "tapas, hungry? this won't help." [ laughter ] tapas, of course, the spanish word for "not enough." [ laughter ] next, we have cardigans. cardigans have never had a slogan until now. "cardigans, why wait to look like a grandpa?" [ laughter and applause ] jump ahead. next, we have phone batteries. let's see a slogan for phone batteries. "phone batteries, it keeps going and going, nope, it's dead." [ laughter ] and i just charged it. next, we have the slogan for the phenomenon of when your mom says no to something. so here we go. for when your mom says no to something, "don't get mad, get dad." although, chances are he'll probably just tell you to ask your mother. so it's a loop, just a loop.
12:50 am
next, we have foreskins. "foreskins, take it or leave it." [ laughter ] at's a distressing picture of a rabbi with scissors. seth, that's not what it looks like. that is -- [ laughter ] guy brought in for a photo shoot and they said, just look like -- be a dead- eyed monster and we'll put some scissors in your hand. [ laughter ] that's not how it works. next, we have puppies. puppies seem like they sell themselves. let's see their slogan. "puppies, because he doesn't want a baby." [ laughter and applause ] let's look at our old rabbi friend again. can we see him? probably can't. oh, there he is. and finally, we have workplace bathrooms.
12:51 am
"workplace bathrooms, a place to cry and fart." hopefully not at the same time. that's been "new slogans." it's been brought to you by ikea, whose slogan is, "ikea, you can't do it, we won't help." we'll be right back with will forte.

[ cheers and applause ] >> so it's got a pedigree. >> seth: it's got a pedigree. >> no, but, this guy, a virus has taken the lives of everyone on earth. and i'm somehow immune to the virus. i'm trying to figure out what to do. it's the perfect, you know, place to start a comedy, right? everyone is dead. >> seth: everyone's dead. >> yep. >> seth: and was it fun doing, because, again, at least for the first hour, you're completely acting alone. >> it was very fun. >> seth: yeah. >> it was very, very fun. you know, a lot of it is wish fulfillment like you see in there. and i just got to do all the things that i think i would do if i was in that situation, anyway. like, things you didn't see, i get to, you know, use a flame
12:58 am
thrower to torch a bunch of toilet paper and wigs and, you know, i'd steam roller a bunch of beers. it doesn't take much to make me happy. >> seth: i enjoy that you, pretty much every glass door, you shoot it open, you shoot it with a gun. >> dude, it's the easiest way, really. yeah, yeah. [ laughter ] >> seth: i've been following you on twitter for a long time. you're not that active. you've gotten active to promote the show. >> yes, i was forced to start tweeting. >> seth: yes. >> yeah. >> seth: but then you found there's a downside of the interaction with fans, because people have tweeted you some photos of, they think it's you. >> yes. there's -- >> seth: let's do this ad first. >> okay. >> seth: because this, i will say when i saw this on my desk, i did think it was you. so, this is for -- >> i saw this, i thought it was me.

12:59 am
>> seth: yes.

[ laughter ] i was very happy to see in flashbacks of your character on "last man on earth," your mother, your wonderful mother, plays your mom in the flashbacks. >> my mother plays my mom. my dad plays my dad. my mom, i did have to cut one of her scenes. she was great. she was awesome. mom, you're wonderful. mom -- wherever, whatever camera, mom, you're wonderful.
1:00 am
but yeah, we just had to cut one of these things that she was in, but she has the best sense of humor. she's so funny and fun and actually brought something to encapsulate that. >> seth: all right, now i remember this. this is a birthday card your mother sent you. this will show your mother's sense of humor. but part of this card, because i want to make something clear here. you cannot show the image she sent on television. so you have to cover part of it up. >> she included a picture in here of me as a baby. and i'll cover up the offensive parts and then i'll tell you what it is. okay. that's what it is. and if you look, if you would then look under my thumb, you would see the most diaper-rash-riddled butthole you've ever seen.

[ laughter ] i'll show it to -- >> seth: no, i've never seen it. i don't want to see it. >> okay. >> seth: because here's why i don't want to -- [ laughter ] i don't want to see you. because andy samberg saw this
1:01 am
and was so upset. he was so upset. he was sad. he didn't laugh once. >> he hated it and then our friend, john solomon, got a bunch of people to send it from their texts so he never knew that it was coming. and he kept opening up these images of my diaper rash butthole. [ laughter ] my favorite part of this, though, is on the other side it says, "will, classic macgruber. [ laughter ] love, mom." >> seth: well, patty forte -- no, i don't want to see it! when we come back, i want to talk about your incredible performance at my wedding and i want to get into second chance theatre. i want you to come back to do another one. >> oh, okay. >> seth: more with will forte right after this.

[ laughter ] and if you thought i got it bad -- [ laughter ] >> it was an honor to be at your wedding. >> seth: it was so fun. and that was about a six-minute toast and that was about the only 30 seconds we could show on television.

[ laughter ] i did. i'm serious. they don't believe me now.
1:10 am
[ laughter ] i left on my own. >> seth: i remember about "finders keepers" because -- what i loved about you, you would always write songs that i always thought had way too many words in them for the music's sake. you had to talk really fast all the time through the song. and immediately, everybody else in the scene was, like, three bars behind. [ laughter ] you were great, but other people were, like, they were singing a different song, like, two songs back. >> yes, yes. >> seth: mr. baker? >> ooh, mr. baker. >> seth: that's another good one, right? >> about a schoolteacher who bribes people with sweaters. >> seth: yeah. >> i believe. >> seth: yeah. that's a good one. >> oh, there was -- oh, this one was -- i really liked this. this was -- it was called "will forte has very questionable taste." it was my first season, and jennifer garner was the host, and it was a sketch where it would have been -- during the body of the show, i would have been in bed with her and saying, like, i cannot believe that during the middle of the show,
1:11 am
you're somehow squeezing in an opportunity to have sex with, like, a new cast member. >> seth: right. >> you're supposed to believe that we're having sex during the show, and then i ask her to please put a bag over her face. [ laughter ] and it's like -- it only works obviously, because jennifer garner is so freaking beautiful. did not make it into the show. >> seth: right. now, if we do this "second chance theater" here, we'd say we probably have to get garner. >> got to get garner. >> seth: yeah. hopefully she'll support it. >> garner. jennifer garner. [ laughter ] >> seth: there was one falconer that didn't happen with rainn wilson, right? >> yeah. >> seth: what happened with falconer that time out, do you remember? >> you know, they freaking had some answer for why they cut it. bs. >> seth: no, i meant what happened to the sketch? >> oh, i don't know.

1:12 am
go -- the falconer discovers that the falcon is a puppet and that will forte is a cast member on "saturday night live." >> seth: oh, right. it's the falconer walking down the hallway, you're seeing a will forte photo and losing his mind. >> yeah, yeah. >> seth: which he's already lost because he was talking to a falcon. >> yes, yes. >> seth: so, losing his mind most terrifying. we have so much to choose from the next time you're out. >> i'm excited. >> seth: also, i will say if you just want to write another one of these, if you want to make jenjamin recurring, we could also go that way. >> i look at that, it gives me so much joy. >> seth: can you give us a little of how jenjamin talks real quick? >> no, i'm not comfortable doing that. [ laughter ] >> seth: so sexy. he's so sexy. congrats on the new show. i'm so, so happy for you. >> thank you. >> seth: will forte, everyone.

[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> seth: how are you? >> very well. >> seth: it's so lovely to see you. it's so great to have you back in new york city. >> thank you. >> seth: you were here for a long time. you were an improviser at ucb, yes? >> yep, i did a lot of stuff there. >> seth: and you auditioned for
1:19 am
"snl" back in the day. >> yes. >> seth: i remember watching -- do you remember your impressions? >> yes. i do not do impressions. you have to, as you know, for those auditions. so i did miley cyrus and renee zellweger. >> seth: gotcha. >> the reason i did renee zellweger, is i used to look like her. i don't look like her anymore. our faces have gone different ways. my impression of -- [ laughter ] -- renee zellweger was simply a look and i just -- this is why i'm not on "saturday night live." [ laughter ] it was not mysterious. i did not say anything, i just pinched my face. and miley cyrus, i just, like, plucked a headline from the tabloids about how she was, you know, doing, like, sort of, racy photos. i did not do an impression of her. i just, liked acted out losing my clothes during an interview. [ laughter ] it was not good. >> seth: so, you went away, you go to l.a. this job brings you back to new york. are you looking for a reason to get back to new york? are you happy to be back? >> very happy to be back. i feel like i lost my edge in l.a. a little bit. >> seth: you're edgy.
1:20 am
>> i'm the queen of edge. i'm a peace-maker when it comes to edge. i love new york. i sort of -- i think a got a little romantic about the subway. and, like, you know, everything -- >> seth: you mean, like, in l.a. you started thinking -- >> exactly. the winters in new york are beautiful, the subway is lovely. and, like, i know neither of those things are that great in new york. the other day i was on the subway. it was very crowded, people were pushing. this lady said, "hey, don't push people, that's rude." the woman says, "rude? don't tell me what's rude, i have a collapsed lung." [ laughter ] >> seth: that just doesn't make sense. >> doesn't make sense. >> seth: yeah. >> just because you have a collapsed lung, you're not the arbiter of what is rude. >> seth: you get very lucky with two-line exchanges you hear in new york city. >> so lucky. >> seth: best in the world. >> oh, yeah. >> seth: our two-line exchanges are the best in the world. >> come to new york. >> seth: so, this part was written for you by tina fey and robert carlock, who are two of the most brilliant writers working today. maybe ever. and it's an interesting -- like, tell us, give us a little bit of
1:21 am
the back story of kimmy schmidt. >> okay, so the back story is maybe a little bit dark. it's a young lady has been kept underground for 15 years in a post- apocalyptic cult. and the first episode, we see her rescued by the fbi and she decides to make a go of it and start life over again in new york city, ride the subway and that's where the story sort of starts. >> seth: it's so great. and the pilot is so funny. you know who's really funny in the pilot is matt lauer. >> oh, so funny. >> seth: he's great. you guys go on the today show, and he kills it. >> he kills it. and he was on 30 rock a lot. i'm always like, he is so funny. i wonder if he wants out of "the today show." >> seth: no. [ laughter ] i think he's got it. i think he's doing very well. >> i think he's got it down. >> seth: yeah, i think he's doing very well. >> he is so funny. i know. i know. >> seth: and so -- it's an interesting story about this show, because it was going be on nbc then netflix took it over. and now it's going to be on netflix. and right away, netflix not only took the first season, but said we want a second season. have you talked to, like, tina and robert now that the show is going to be on netflix, it's not
1:22 am
a network television show anymore, are they going to take advantage of where it is? >> yeah, you can just sort of push the boundaries maybe a little bit more on netflix. tina made a great joke about next season, we're going to see a lot more shower sex. [ laughter ] she claims she was joking. i hope. >> seth: we'll find out, yeah. >> we'll find out. but, yeah, no, i think there's room to do more. >> seth: shower sex should almost be a category on netflix. >> oh, yeah. [ laughter ] >> seth: are you in the mood? based on your previous selections. >> we think you would enjoy this, shower sex. yeah, so we'll see. >> seth: you did not always want to be an actor. >> no. >> seth: you had a dream job as a kid that i don't feel like a lot of kids have. >> well, i guess it's just how good i am. i used to want to be a nun. >> seth: wow. >> yeah, that was -- we had to write an essay in first grade. can you write in first grade? >> seth: i think. yeah, but you need -- you really got to give me the lines. >> so we have to write on the lines, if i could be any other living thing, and people were like, whale, a volcano, and i
1:23 am
wanted to be a nun. [ applause ] >> seth: well -- [ applause ] much like -- much like the two faces of ellie and renee, the paths diverge. >> we've gone different ways. now i'm all shower sex all the time. >> seth: the edgy shower sex girl. >> yeah, queen. >> seth: you had -- in high school, you have an acting teacher in high school which is a pretty impressive acting teacher. >> yeah, maybe you've heard of him. first name's jon, and last name's hamm. >> seth: that's an incredible name. [ laughter ] how did you end up with jon hamm as a drama teacher in high school? >> jon hamm went to our high school. and then he went to college, and he came back and taught theater for a year at our school. so he's like the prince of st. louis -- everyone just adores him there. and he's so kind. he's, like, an uncle to all of these people from our high school who go out to l.a. and, like, try to, you know, pursue acting. i contacted him when i first got out there. i invited him to my one-person show. i'm sure he was thrilled. >> seth: right.
1:24 am
>> he was already on "mad men." >> seth: yeah. >> he came to my show, which was so nice. he was in the audience. and the stage manager came out and said jon hamm's in the audience. everyone's buzzing. then i was, like, it's my show, guys. let's focus on me. >> seth: right. >> he stole the show. >> seth: he is the king of st. louis. i was in st. louis, a cab driver said, hey, i grew up with jon hamm and -- i was texting in the back going, uh-huh. i text jon and i'm like, cab driver said he's a friend of yours. he said, oh whats his name? so i say his name. he was, "oh, say hi." >> see, what's what i mean! everyone claims ownership of him. then it's like, he does -- >> seth: he's the mayor of st. louis. >> there's a jon hamm day at busch stadium. >> seth: is there really? >> and everyone got a jon hamm bobble head. >> seth: wow. >> yeah, i know. [ laughter ] >> seth: that's really great. >> i'm waiting for that. i don't know if my day will come. >> seth: i think so. i think it's trending. >> maybe. >> seth: but it will be a shower bobble. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> seth: it'll be missing, and you'll kind of tell it's ellie, but you shake it and it bangs against the side. [ laughter ]
