>> WHY ARE YOU SO NERVOUS ABOUT WHAT I'M GOING TO SAY TO FATHER

>> BECAUSE YOU'RE A LIAR.

YOU TELL LIES ABOUT ME.

BAM!

PEOPLE ARE SO OBSESSED WITH THIS PROGRAM.

I HAVE PEOPLE THAT WORK HERE IN THIS OFFICE WHO DISAPPEAR FOR DAYS ON "GAME OF THRONE" JAGS,

AND THEY JUST COME BACK WITH THAT SORT OF CAN'T-WAIT.

THERE HAS TO BE A EUROPEAN NERD GLAZE.

EGG-BASED FRENCH.

THERE MUST BE SOMETHING THAT THEY DO WITH THAT.

I ALWAYS ASSUMED THAT WHEN YOU'RE FILMING THIS, THEY KEEP YOU IN CASTLES JUST TO KEEP...

OR IS THERE LIKE YOU COME FROM A RESIDENCE INN AND THEY PUT THE WHOLE THING TOGETHER AND BOOM.

>> WE ARE CALLED BY A RAIN.

BY A RAVEN.

ARE THERE REAL WIZARDS ON SET?

IT'S THE WHOLE THING.

DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS.

>> BRING ME MY LATTE.

THAT'S THE NAME OF MY RAVEN.

COME ON.

I'M A FAN.

THE WHOLE THING NOW THOUGH IS NOW TO COME BACK INTO THE WORLD OF MORTALS AND NONBEHEADINGS AND

ALL THAT, HAVE YOU FELT LIKE YOU'VE GONE NATIVE IN THIS MEDIEVAL WORLD?

ARE YOU HAVING TROUBLE IN THIS WORLD WITHOUT MEAD?

AND SOMEBODY BRINGS YOU OATMEAL AND YOU'RE LIKE REALLY OATMEAL, WHERE'S MY POUR RIDGE?

THEY GET A BUNCH OF REALLY GOOD ACTORS AND THEN MYSELF TO APPEAR IN SHOWS THAT THESE 10-YEAR-OLDS WRITE.

THEY'RE ABOUT FIVE MINUTES

I'VE BEEN A PART OF THAT A COUPLE TIMES UNTIL THE 10-YEAR-OLDS DECIDED THAT I COULDN'T ACT.

>> APPARENTLY LEWIS BLACK TEACHES COMEDY.
