[ laughter ] ladies and gentlemen, we have a great show for you tonight.

[ cheers and applause ] now sadly, obviously, it's late at night, my dog frisbee, and my two boys, axel and ashe are asleep. they can't be here, but another thing that has been tradition we started two years ago with ashe and frisbee is we dressed ashe up like a turkey frisbee up like
12:42 am
a pilgrim, and we just shot them on video for fifteen seconds. we did it again when ashe was 1, and now ashe is 2. his brother is 7 months old and frisbee is still with us. so here for the third time please enjoy this incredibly moving short film, "two turkeys and a pilgrim." ♪ [ laughter ] ♪ [ audience aws ] >> gobble, gobble, gobble. [ audience awws ] >> seth: yeah! [ applause ] although, the amount i was standing off camera saying, "say gobble, gobble, gobble," already today he woke up, my son ashe, and he's saying "boggle, boggle, boggle," so -- [ light laughter ] very disappointing how -- how short that lasted. but, you know, my whole family is here tonight and maybe that is just making me feel a little sentimental. but with the holidays here it got me thinking about the way things are, and the way they used to be.
12:43 am
heck, sometimes i look around, and i don't even recognize the world i'm living in anymore. and that's why i'd like to join my family right now -- [ cheers and applause ] to talk about how things were just a bit more simple, back in my day. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> seth: well, hello everyone. hello, hello. >> hello, hello. >> hello. >> hello. >> seth: you know, back in my day, we didn't have black friday, the day after thanksgiving with half-off sales that helped stimulate small businesses. we had blackout friday where you went to your hometown bar, and got so drunk with your high school friends that the only thing was half off was your pants. [ laughter ] and then everyone could see your small business. [ laughter ] >> back in my day, there was no such thing as "friendsgiving." no sir, the meyers family just had regular old thanksgiving, and that was good enough for us.
12:44 am
plus, seth didn't have any friends. [ laughter ] >> back in my day, michelle obama wasn't releasing a memoir. back in my day, if i wanted to read a book about a first lady, i had to crack open that bargain bin copy of the eleanor roosevelt biography that seth bought me for mother's day. thanks, big spender. >> back in my day, i got a good eight hours of sleep every night. now i have to stay up late to watch this show because -- [ laughter ] seth calls every morning and says, "did you watch? i made a joke about trump." oh, did you? [ laughter ] way to switch it up. [ laughter and applause ] >> seth: back in my day, we didn't sit around the tv and watch netflix on thanksgiving. hogwash. we sat around the tv, and watched vhs tapes as a family.
12:45 am
and one thanksgiving mom rented "basic instincts" because she liked michael douglas. and then sharon stone crossed and uncrossed her legs, and let's just say things took a real awkward turn. [ laughter ] i mean, we're a close family and all, but christ almighty we're not that close. [ laughter ] >> back in my day, there was no legalized medical marijuana in our home state of new hampshire. it was illegal, and that's why seth was suspended in high school. [ laughter ] sorry you had to find out like this, mom and dad, and on thanksgiving, no less. >> seth, no. >> seth: back in my day, the president's staff wasn't ratting him out to the fbi. josh was ratting me out to mom and dad because he's a kiss ass punk. [ laughter ] >> back in my day new hampshire's motto was "live free or die," and it still is. but i always thought it should be, "hey, cheapskates from massachusetts, stop crossing the state lines just to save a few bucks on booze."
12:46 am
[ laughter ] i swear to god, you show me a massachusetts resident that isn't a hard drinker, and i'll show you a unicorn that [ bleep ] lotto tickets. >> but honey, i'm from massachusetts. >> i know you are. [ laughter ] >> back in my day, bradley cooper and lady gaga weren't starring in "a star is born." no, back then it starred barbra streisand and kris kristofferson, and kris kristofferson's chest hair. [ laughter ] thick, lustrous chest hair, the density of larry's mustache. [ laughter ] in fact, there are times when i'm kissing larry that i pretend it's kris kristofferson's chest. [ laughter ] [ applause ] >> seth: t.m.i., mom. t.m.i.
12:47 am
>> you know, back in my day democrats weren't sweeping the house. i was sweeping our house because seth is sensitive to dust. [ light laughter ] fun fact, he still carries an inhaler. >> seth: back in my day, the president wasn't in bed with wikileaks. hogwash. back in my day, the only leaks we had to worry about were the leaks josh was taking in his bed until he was 14. [ laughter and applause ] >> well, back in my day, we had a house full of farts cause seth wasn't around to eat them all. [ laughter ] >> seth: back in my day, shut up. [ laughter and applause ] >> back in my day, no, you shut up. [ laughter ] >> boys, please. back in my day, seth was our handsomest son. because we only had one son, and then josh showed up, and it was like "oh, god, that's a good looking baby." [ laughter ]
12:48 am
>> back in my day seth didn't force us to come and watch this talk show. no sir, back in my day, he forced us to come and watch his improv shows. and oh boy, some of them were were real stinkers. [ laughter ] you want a suggestion from the audience? here's one. write something funny! [ laughter ] >> back in my day, we didn't buy our clothes all ripped. if you tore your pants, you stitched them up or threw them out. plus, it's a death trap. i tried on a pair of those ripped jeans, caught my leg in a knee tear, and took a tumble in the dressing room. [ laughter ] >> seth: that's a good one, mom. you want to tell everyone who wrote it? >> i did. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] i wrote it and texted it to you, and then i didn't hear from you for a full day. >> seth: what's your point? >> my point is, back in the day, my son wasn't such a big shot
12:49 am
that he couldn't text his mother back. what did i ever do to hurt you? >> you just said josh was more handsome. [ laughter ] >> that's just a fact, honey. [ laughter ] [ applause ] >> you know, back in my day, seth wasn't sitting there listening to celebrities regale him with stories about working in hollywood. back in my day, the only thing seth listened to were the random radio stations that got picked up by the massive retainer head gear he used to wear. we didn't think he'd be a tv star. we thought he'd be a tv antenna. [ laughter ] >> and finally, back in my day, seth wasn't hitting homeruns on late night tv. he was hitting low dribblers to the mound in little league. and we liked that because it was better than all the strikeouts. >> seth: well, i'm sorry we had to do that, but sometimes this grumpy grunge butt has got to get its gripe on. this has been -- >> together: back in my day.

[ cheers and applause ] and fred i -- let me talk about this. i'm in awe of how prolific you are. you're always working on new projects. you're making television shows that are so unique and different. i'm such a fan of your work, but you were saying backstage the cost, to you personally, is you no longer have time to read books, to read novels, to read fiction. >> fred: yeah, i just don't get a chance. >> seth: and i was saying, "oh i'm heartbroken on your behalf," and you said, "don't be." because you have developed a process, according to you, where you can look at the cover of a book, and know everything about it. [ light laughter ] >> fred: yes. >> seth: you know the full plot, all the characters. >> fred: yes. yes. >> seth: and you enjoy it exactly as much as if you'd read the whole book. >> fred: always. yes. [ light laughter ] >> seth: and you've never failed. you've never looked at a cover and gotten the plot even a little bit wrong. >> fred: never. >> seth: wow. >> fred: it's always worked out. yes. >> seth: do you think we could try it here for everybody? >> fred: sure. why not? >> seth: all right. one more time.

12:55 am
♪ very excited to try this, buddy. here we go. this is "alaskan holiday," by debbie macomber. >> fred: oh yeah. okay. so, debbie macomber, she wrote this book "alaskan holiday." >> seth: so, that's a thing i think everybody would know by looking at the cover. [ laughter ] >> fred: and it's about this optometrist who decided to have a very different kind of, sort of, eye exam. and this optometrist, who was a guy was like, "i'm gonna do something where there are dogs, different kind of dogs all over the place. we'll see if people can recognize what kind of dog it is." but he sort of bunched them up all in the middle, and towards the bottom. so -- [ laughter ] so, people would come in. you know? by the way, this is fiction. naturally. [ laughter ] and so -- so, people would come in and they'd go like -- he'd be like, "what do you see?" they'd be like, "i see three dogs." so, he thought everyone had perfect vision. he's like, "people have been cured. we know longer need glasses."
12:56 am
he had all the glasses smashed around the world, and it took a decade, and at the end he realizes like, "oh, i should have done different distances and different sizes for the dogs," and the story continues. it's sort of open ended. [ laughter ] and he went on an alaskan holiday to sort of rethink about how he's going to do his eye tests. [ laughter ] >> seth: so, this almost sounds post-apocalyptic. it's a world where all glasses have been destroyed. >> fred: yeah. [ laughter ] >> seth: can i -- and by the way, this sounds like an incredible book, and i'm not saying you're wrong. >> fred: okay. >> seth: but can i read you what you the publisher says this is about? >> fred: if you need to. [ laughter ] >> seth: before beginning her dream job as a sous chef in one of seattle's hottest new restaurants, josie avery takes a summer position cooking at a lakeside lodge in the remote town of ponder, alaska. while there, she falls for the quiet and intense palmen saxton, a famed master swordsmith. >> fred: and they go to the

[ laughter ] they like hibernate every time they go to bed, and they're like, "no." it's like, "i need that sleep." >> and the way -- the way i woke up this morning was sound asleep, and she jumps up and says, "it's 10:00. get up."

[ light laughter ] >> seth: and that's a while ago now. that's weeks ago. >> yeah, but we hadn't used the clock since. >> seth: yeah. >> so. but we did use it yesterday. >> seth: well, look. i'm glad you guys are all here, and i want to ask about this. last year on thanksgiving i announced that alexi and i were going to have another baby, and
1:00 am
we obviously had that baby, and we -- >> you did? >> seth: we did, yeah. [ laughter ] we -- but we had him in the -- it was a very dramatic birth. we delivered him in the lobby of our apartment building. obviously, that was very surreal for me. what was it like for you guys when you heard the news? >> well, for me you guys facetimed me on the way to the hospital in the ambulance, and you just seemed so happy, and everyone was smiling, and i was like, "oh that must have been the best, easiest birth." >> seth: yeah. >> like, you don't even have to be in the hospital to have the baby, and i -- i've not given birth and i was like, "well, that sound ideal rather than being in labor for like 14 hours." >> seth: it's great to show up with the baby and just go, "yup, we had it." they're like "all right." >> yeah. >> seth: "well back home you go." [ laughter ] "we'll stamp your card and send you on your way." >> yeah. >> yeah. >> no charges. >> so to me it didn't sound dramatic, and then you told the story and i was like, "oh that's maybe a bit more." >> it was scary. >> well, we had you -- talked to you earlier in the day, and just a couple hours before, and then you facetimed
1:01 am
me, and it's just your face, and you're saying, "hey dad. alexi had the baby." and i said, "how is she?" and then you went like this with the phone, and there she was right behind you in the ambulance. >> seth: yeah. >> so, that was -- that was pretty dramatic. >> seth: yeah. >> yeah. >> that was pretty good. >> seth: how have you -- it's your first grandchildren. are you learning? are there things that you -- mistakes you've made that you will try to not make the second time with the second one? >> yeah, i think in my case being a grandparent, it's not -- it's not something you know how to do. never did it before, and so i've made some mistakes clearly. [ laughter ] >> i have not made a mistake. >> seth: no, you were good. >> but i have -- i -- >> so, but let's hear about these. he's clearly made some. >> i -- it started again with facetime. seth would facetime me with ashe, and then i made the mistake. first mistake is we have two big dogs, and i would say, "well, would you like to see albert?" and i showed him the dog, and --
1:02 am
"would you like it see daisy?" and i'd show him the dog, and that seemed to go pretty well, and then i would try to talk to him, and he'd run away. and then the next time, it's me and you facetiming with ashe, and i'd say "hi, ashe. how are you?" he says, "where's albert?" [ light laughter ] so, albert would be outside. so, i'd have to go outside and find albert in the woods. >> seth: in the snow, often. >> in the snow. well, it wasn't snowing then, but you go out and find albert, and then he'd say -- >> that's also -- i do like cause you clearly are walking around with an ipad. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> which is just a dope -- a dopier way to walk around then with a phone. >> seth: imagine being the neighbor, and just seeing dad walking around outside. [ laughter ] >> well, if this was radio i wouldn't do that, but i want everybody to understand. [ laughter ] so that6- >> i'm just pointing out that you look like a dope if you're walking around with your ipad. [ laughter ] that's okay. as your were. >> well, i have another dog. so, i have to finish the story like this. okay.
1:03 am
so, i go to find -- he said, two seconds looking at albert, and then he says, "where's daisy?" so i have to go find daisy, and then so i did that for awhile, and realized it was really a pain in the ass. >> seth: yeah. [ light laughter ] >> so, i came up with a new idea cause i had made a mistake. so, i'm gonna recover from the mistake. so, i decided that i would get a stuffed animal. >> seth: mm-hmm. >> and that when he calls, instead of having to go look for the dogs, i'll show him the stuffed animals. so, i got mr. donkey. >> seth: yeah. mr. donkey's a hit. >> this is mr. donkey, and so, you know -- he calls up and i say, hey ashe. i have a new friend, and "who's that?" i go, " hey, i'm mr. donkey. how are you? hey, ashle. i'm mr. donkey." >> seth: yeah. by the way, that went okay, it [ bleep ] crushes with ashe. [ laughter ] like, what that just got was a fraction. that kills so much harder. >> yeah. well, i lost a lot of credibility with this. [ laughter ] so anyway, now i get a text from seth in the morning, and he'll say, "is mr. donkey up?"
1:04 am
[ laughter ] and ashe, you know, facetimes, and i have to play. i put mr. donkey up, and we start talking, "hello ashe. how are you?" whatever. [ laughter ] and then as soon as i say, "hi ashe. it's your grandpa." he's gone. [ laughter ] so, that was a mistake. >> seth: that was a mistake. i should say that our dogs are -- your dogs are for a child incredibly magnetic animals to want to look at. there are the dogs you have right now. these two giant animals. [ audience aws ] and they're beautiful dogs, but it is like, when owners start looking like their dogs -- look at -- [ laughter and applause ] look at that. i mean, there's a -- there's a good chance he just thinks you're albert and daisy. [ laughter ] i want to ask about this. we've talked about this. we've been -- since we were very young, and we have not introduced this at the level that you introduced it to us. we had a football pool. we still have a football pool. josh and i have to e-mail our football picks to you guys. it's a four-person pool, and
1:05 am
then in the recent years we joined a big pool with a group of people we knew, about 600 people. it's a three strike pool, and you pay a hundred bucks, you could win a lot of money if you get it. obviously, none of us have ever come close, and josh you begged out a couple years ago. you did not want to do this pool anymore. >> i didn't like it. you even paid our way in. >> seth: yeah. >> so it was not my money, and i just could, you know, pick. but every week if i ever lost, it would -- i'd be so angry that i'd take a strike in this pool, and i just didn't like how it made me feel. so i put it in my calendar, sort of ahead of the following year's football season and said, "i want out." >> seth: yeah. >> and you were like, "can i keep your spot, and put ashe in?" so, you know. >> seth: so my -- and my son's been pulling plastic helmets out of a bag to pick his teams -- >> and consistently lasting longer than any of you. >> seth: beat all of us. [ laughter ] >> yeah. >> yeah. >> seth: you -- you spend the money before -- you always start talking -- >> i'm still in it. >> seth: you're still in it this year. >> i'm still in it. i'm in it to win it. >> seth: you're in it to win it. >> yeah. >> seth: josh, you have an
1:06 am
impression of the way mom talks when she picks a football game wrong? >> well, she'll be so angry and feel so cheated. she's like, "how are the tennessee titans, who thinks they're going to beat new england? that's just impossible. i don't -- like, how does that happen? that never happens." i was like, "but it happens sometimes." [ laughter ] and she's just appalled when there are upsets. >> yeah. >> yeah. >> seth: yeah. >> and somehow it's my fault. >> seth: yeah. [ light laughter ] that's -- that's -- would you say that we are as a family fairly competitive? is that something you'd say? >> oh, yeah. >> oh, absolutely. >> yeah. >> seth: now, we're going to stick around cause the next act we're gonna put this competitive nature to the test. my in-laws, tom and joanne are going to come out. my wife, alexis, is going to come out, and we're gonna play our version of "the newlywed game." so, stick around for the thanksgiving "late night" battle royale.
