  • -You and Sandra Oh
  • hosted the Golden Globes the other night,
  • did a great job. -Yeah. Thanks.
  • [ Cheers and applause ] Thanks.
  • -That's a tough -- That is a tough, tough room.
  • I know from experience. -Yeah.
  • -I don't know if you saw what happened with me.
  • -I recently re-watched it, yeah.
  • -Did you really? -Yeah.
  • -Guys, I hosted The Golden Globes,
  • and, you know, the great --
  • Everyone's nice over there and everything.
  • I go out, and we do this giant opening,
  • like a "La La Land" thing. -Wonderful, yeah.
  • -Spent hours on this thing.
  • Worked days and weeks on this thing.
  • Come out to tell my monologue, and the teleprompter is broken.
  • -Mm-hmm. -Nothing, just a blank screen,
  • And I go, "Oh, boy." [ Laughter ]
  • "This is bad."
  • So I'm waiting for the applause to kind of --
  • Or, they announce, "Jimmy Fallon,"
  • and everyone's clapping, and then they kind of like --
  • Tired of clapping, 'cause I'm not doing anything.
  • So I'm just kind of standing there,
  • I'm like -- [ Breathes deeply ]
  • And then, they have a replacement teleprompter
  • that was -- it was behind the broken teleprompter.
  • So I can see like four letters of words.
  • And then I saw, like, computer typing.
  • I go, "Oh, this is serious." [ Laughter ]
  • "How am I gonna get this back?"
  • It felt like it was four days of silence.
  • -And I re-watched it, and it's about 6 seconds.
  • -Is it really? -Yeah. It was fine.
  • It was great. -Oh, no, please.
  • -It's a tough room. -Dude, 'cause --
  • -Well, the thing that I think maybe
  • is starting to read even more on TV now is the audience
  • is not watching the show. [ Laughter ]
  • Like, it is -- it's like there's two things happening.
  • There's, like, a big awards show happening,
  • and then right next to it is a really loud restaurant
  • filled with celebrities. [ Laughter ]
  • -It is just people drinking and eating and going --
  • -They do not care about the show.
  • When we came out for the monologue,
  • you can look at the wide shot, and it looks like a --
  • like the battlefield in "Game of Thrones"
  • or something... [ Laughter ]
  • ...where it's like a melee.
  • People are, like, cooking meat over an open fire,
  • and, like, throwing spears. -Yeah.
  • -I was just like, "Oh, God, none of these nuanced jokes
  • are gonna land. -No, not at all.
  • We worked hard on it. No, not at all.
  • And it's live. -Mm-hmm.
  • -It's not like it's a taped show,
  • and you go, "Hey, guys, can we focus?"
  • No. They're never gonna pay attention.
  • -One time, we came out and no one was paying attention.
  • I saw somebody on the phone. -Oh, yeah.
  • -And I kind of tried to be like this to get people's attention.
  • The only person, front row, was Rami Malek,
  • was like, "Yeah, yeah!" [ Cheers ]
  • -See? -I was like, "I love you!"
  • -That's a good dude, right there.
  • -He's a good dude.
  • Oh, my God. His speech was great.
  • -It was a great speech. You know who had a great speech?
  • Sandra Oh, your co-host. -Incredible.
  • -It was beautiful.
  • -Sandra Oh is the best person on Earth.
  • -Really? -Yeah.
  • [ Cheers and applause ]
  • She's way better than you. -What?
  • -Way better. I love you.
  • -We've known each other for so long.
  • -I know. I met her like three days ago.
  • [ Laughter ]
  • But it's true. -No.
  • -We met briefly, we presented at the Emmys,
  • and then we spent like the last week and a half
  • working on the Globes.
  • But we didn't know each other that much,
  • and we just sort of liked each other so much
  • from that one experience, we decided to go for it
  • 'cause they asked. -Is that right?
  • -Yeah. -So that's where they came up --
  • 'Cause I was wondering what was the background.
  • Thought you were old buddies.
  • -We just did it like a fun presenter bit.
  • -Yeah. -But it -- She's so, like,
  • warm and magnetic, and I fell so into her energy
  • that we were all backstage when she won,
  • and I was like -- They were like, "Sandra Oh,"
  • and I was like, "Yeah!" [ Laughter ]
  • Like, started crying -- "She's been working on this
  • for the last four days I've known her!"
  • [ Laughter ]
  • Yeah, I, like, gave her boyfriend a big hug.
  • We were like, "We did it!" -Yeah.
  • [ Laughter ]
  • It's just odd when you see your good friends win an award.
  • -Yeah. -Because you go, "Awards,
  • it's cool to be nominated and all that stuff,"
  • but when you see your buddies win --
  • I think I was there when you won.
  • -When I won a Globey? -Yeah.
  • You won a Golden Globe. -Yeah.
  • -I think Seth gave it to you. -Seth gave it to me, yeah.
  • It was really sweet.
  • -So I was like, "I know him, and I know him."
  • And then I start crying, and I'm like,
  • "Where's Sandra Oh? I love you, too!"
  • [ Laughter ]
  • You just did a thing called -- a PBS show
  • that I think -- Quest, did you do this show?
  • "Finding Your Roots"? -Yeah, yeah, I did.
  • -You did it. -Did you enjoy it?
  • -Yes, I enjoyed it. [ Laughter ]
  • -Okay. Cool. Definitely keep that exchange.
  • [ Laughter ] -Oh, my God.
  • -You didn't have to yell that loud, either.
  • -I know it's rude to come in and call shots and stuff,
  • but let's get a close on Quest, and then -- Sorry.
  • [ Laughter ]
  • -So, he did -- he did "Finding Your Roots" on PBS.
  • -Yeah. Skip Gates. -Did you find --
  • -I found my roots. -Yeah.
  • [ Laughter ] -Yes.
  • -And they're right next to you. Yeah.
  • They were right there the whole time.
  • What did you -- Any secrets or anything that you found out?
  • -I found out where in Africa
  • my great, great, great grandfather came from.
  • -Wow. Did you have any idea
  • or any clue that that was -- -I had zero clue.
  • Until that moment, didn't know where I came from.
  • -Why did you end up going on?
  • -I went on because my mother was adopted
  • and has never known who her birth parents were.
  • -Wow. -So when they asked,
  • I generally don't like to do stuff like that
  • because I like to, you know, keep my name out the streets.
  • [ Laughter ] But...
  • As one says.
  • But I know that she had always really wanted to know,
  • so I called her and asked her, like, hey, if they could
  • figure it out, would you want me to do this,
  • and she said --
  • You know, she had tried many times over her life
  • to figure it out and never had success,
  • so she said, "Okay, yeah, go for it,
  • because at least if it works, I'll know."
  • -Wow. -But, yeah, it was great.
  • And they figured everything out.
  • With DNA, like, technology now, they can figure out everything,
  • and they figured out who her parents were,
  • and we've met new relatives.
  • I mean, it was absolutely mind-blowing.
  • -Holy mackerel.
  • I hate to ask again, but did you cry?
  • -I did. -You did again?
  • -Not on camera. But my mom and dad were there,
  • and when they told us stuff about her family
  • and now our family, she lost it.
  • When she lost it, I lost it. -Yeah.
  • Quest, did you cry? Because you were telling me
  • that you were so nervous about crying.
  • -Yeah, I didn't want to cry,
  • but then, like, he just kept getting me,
  • and, finally, he got me. -He broke you down?
  • -He got me. -It's tough.
  • Family is so undeniable.
  • You can't keep your sheen on. [ Laughs ]
  • -Your emotions just come out. -Yeah.
  • -What a great thing --
  • What a great gift to give to your mom.
  • -Incredible. In fact, now I'm sort of --
  • It's kind of my ace in the hole, 'cause I'll be like,
  • "Hey, I'm actually gonna miss Thanksgiving this year.
  • I got a lot of work,"
  • and she's like, "Oh, that's disappointing."
  • I'll be like, "Yeah, but, you know,
  • I found your parents so..." [ Laughter ]
  • -"I think I can take a year..." -"I'll be there next year."
  • -"Yeah, no big deal."
  • -You know, just something I pulled off
  • by telling a lot of wiener jokes.
  • [ Laughter ]
  • Popular enough with wiener jokes to be on that show.
  • -Working your whole career. -Yeah.
