THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE.

I APOLOGISE TO YOU, I HAVE

WHAT THEY CALL STREP THROAT

EVEN THOUGH I'M A GROWN MAN.

THEY SWABBED AND I DID NOT

WANT TO IN ANY WAY PASS THE

STREP ON TO YOU, ALTHOUGH

NOW THAT I REALIZE THIS I DO

USE MY JACKET TO WIPE MY

NOSE.

>> YEAH WHICH A LOT OF

PEOPLE CAN'T DO IT'S VERY

DIFFICULT TO DO.

>> BUT WHEN YOU HAVE A NOSE

LIKE MINE.

COME ON, TAKE IT EASY ON

YOURSELF.

>> BIG OLD VARIETY SHOW.

>> Jon: THAT IS DIFFERENT

EVERY WEEK.

IT IS A MONSTER UNDERTAKING.

>> IT CERTAINLY IS I

CERTAINLY HAD MY FEELINGS

BEFORE WORKING ABOUT IT,

ONCE YOU GOT THERE YOU

BECOME INUNDATED WITH WHAT

YOU HAVE TO DO WEEK AFTER

WEEK.

YOU ARE LIKE THIS IS HARD AS

HELL.

AND THE VARIABLES ARE

OUTSIDE-- WHAT IS GOING ON

IN THE WORLD AND INTERNALLY

DIFFERENT MUSIC, DIFFERENT

HOSTS.

YOU GOT TO, WE CALL IT EACH

WEEK LIKE STARTING AT THE

BOTTOM OF SKETCH MOUNTAIN

AND TRYING TO PUSH THIS

GIANT BOULDER, I THINK THAT

WAS AMY POHLER LINE.

WE HAVE REOCCURRING

CHARACTERS, NOT AS MUCH WHEN

WATCHING THE SHOW LIKE WHEN

I WAS GROWING UP AM BUT YOU

ARE LITERAL LEIGH TRYING TO

COME UP WITH SOMETHING NEW

AND YOU FAIL AT LEAST 20

TIMES A WEEK.

AND THEN YOU GET-- THEN

HOPEFULLY YOU DON'T ON

SATURDAY.

>> Jon: HOPEFULLY.

I DON'T HAVE ANY FACTS TO

BACK THIS UP--

(LAUGHTER)

BUT I HEARD LAST YEAR 30

PEOPLE WERE KILLED IN AN

AVALANCHE ON SKETCH

MOUNTAIN.

>> THAT'S WHAT I HEARD.

>> NOBODY, IT'S TRUE.

>> Jon: OBVIOUSLY I DON'T

HAVE THE FACTS BUT I HEARD

THERE WAS A TERRIBLE TRAGEDY

ON SKETCH MOUNTAIN.

>> AWFUL, HORRIBLE.

>> Jon: I DONE KNOW IF YOU

ARE ALLOWED TO SAY THIS

EDDIE MURPHY, IS HE COMING

ON THE SHOW.

>> I DONE KNOW.

I DON'T KNOW.

I AM-- .

>> Jon: THEY IF THEY DON'T

TELL YOU.

>> THEY DON'T CLEAR ANYTHING

WITH ME, NOT AT ALL, NOTHING,

NOTHING AT ALL.

WHEN WE PICKED THE ELECTION

IN 2008, HAD NOTHING TO DO

WITH THAT.

I DON'T HAVE THE FACTS TO

BACK THAT UP.

>> Jon: NO, I UNDERSTAND.

>> I DON'T.

>> Jon: NOBODY HAS THE FACTS

TO BACK THAT UP.

I GET THE BLINDERS ON, I'M

THERE, I'M JUST DOING MY

THING, IF EDDY MURPHY WHAT

WAS THERE I WOULD BE LIKE

WHAT, NOBODY TELLS ME

ANYTHING.

>> Jon: WHAT IS THE BEST

BAND YOU EVER SAW, HAS THERE

BEEN A MUSICAL ACT WHERE YOU

ARE LIKE I CAN'T EVEN

BELIEVE THESE GUYS ARE HERE

THIS WEEK.

>> WHEN YOU GET TO SEE YOU2

AND BONO, HE DOES NOT CARE

WHERE THE CAMERAS ARE FACING,

HE WILL JUMP UP, WALK AROUND,

JUMP ON YOUR HEADS LIKE HE

IS ROBERTO BENIGNI.

THAT'S SOMETHING ELSE TO SEE

BUT THEN LIKE A PERSONAL

FAVORITE ARE WILLCO, GETTING

WILLCO ON, THATS WITH A BIG

MOMENT WHERE WE GOT TO SEE

JUST THEIR NAME AS A

POSSIBILITY AND SETH MEYERSçó

AND I ARE BIG FANS AND I

WALKED IN SAND AID WILLCO

MIGHT MAKE THE SHOW.

WE GOT TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN.

AND AGAIN NOT HAVING ANY

INFLUENCE, SETH HAVING MUCH,

MUCH MORE INFLUENCE, AND

LOREN HAVING THE MOST

INFLUENCE OVER HIS OWN SHOW,

WHICH IS GOOD TO HE NO.

HE KNOWS WHAT IS GOING ON,

LUCKILY.

HAND THEY GOT TO COME ON SO,

REHEARSED MAYBE ON-- I AM

AMAZED, I LOVE THAT SONG.

AND HE WAS DOING IT RIGHT

THEREs, JUST HIM AND A PIANO
