  • It's so cringe but I'm excited to watch it with you.

  • (bright upbeat music playing)

  • A lot of work goes into a short late night stand-up set.

  • Join me, J.P. Buck as I spotlight the comedians

  • who came up with some of my favorite program sets.

  • This is The Set Up.

  • Please welcome the very funny, Beth Stelling.

  • Hi Beth.

  • Hello. Thank you for having me, JP.

  • (upbeat music progressing)

  • This set was so long ago. You recorded it on a flip cam.

  • (Beth laughing softly)

  • I saw that. That made me laugh really hard.

  • (Buck laughing softly)

  • I tried to find the video

  • and it's like, this no longer exists.

  • I'm like, oh, they went out of business I guess.

  • (Beth laughing loudly)

  • They ran out of space

  • of everybody capturing things from inside their pockets.

  • (Buck laughing loudly)

  • I think that, I think it's so funny too,

  • like going back just to see how I talked to you in email.

  • I mean, I'm not that much different but it was just funny.

  • Like, you know how you always hope

  • that you're not like weird or say something you regret.

  • Like if you go back through Myspace message or something.

  • I think we were, definitely our emails back and forth

  • were a little bit more formal than they are now.

  • Yeah. Not my fault bitch. I'm just kidding.

  • (both laughing loudly)

  • Why don't we just jump into this and start watching?

  • Alright.

  • (bright upbeat music playing)

  • Did you just hear my pen clicking over and over again?

  • I'm like, (Beth shrieking loudly)

  • (laughing loudly)

  • I heard that. You're like, oh no, we're gonna watch this?

  • It's so cringe. (soft blaring)

  • But I'm excited to watch it with you.

  • (bright upbeat music progressing)

  • You walk with purpose. Look at that.

  • I was like, just head down,

  • making sure that I made it to that X.

  • (both laughing loudly)

  • That's right. They do, you do,

  • there is an X right there for you to hit.

  • You try to make it look cool but you're just like,

  • it's funny that the little things

  • you get wrapped up in, you know?

  • (Buck laughing) Cause the truth is,

  • like yes, you need to hit it but you don't need

  • to be like right on it.

  • (laughing loudly)

  • But nothing but very different.

  • A little curtain, I'm opening the curtain for you,

  • walking out, finding your act and then performing

  • not only just for the studio audience

  • but knowing it's going out to a lot of people

  • and gonna live on YouTube forever.

  • (bright upbeat music playing)

  • Gosh, I'm wearing those shoes from Payless.

  • I have like two pairs still left in my mom's house.

  • And then those are like H&M, like capri pants.

  • That's like the equivalent of a male

  • (Buck laughing loudly) wearing shorts on Conan.

  • I recently moved from Illinois to California

  • and I think that you would be hard pressed

  • to find anybody here tonight

  • who's done something that brave,

  • (audience laughing softly) but I did.

  • And I just got some news for my sister back home.

  • She and her boyfriend accidentally planned a baby.

  • (audience laughing progressing)

  • I am cringing.

  • Okay. Sorry.

  • It's making me like giddy in a bad way.

  • (both laughing softly)

  • I just think it's to put-on.

  • But I'm a freaking 25-year-old, you know what I mean?

  • Like this is on there forever.

  • You get to see me like this and now I've changed

  • but it's up there forever.

  • (both laughing loudly)

  • I just wouldn't do it more subtly.

  • You know I don't like,

  • I don't love like anything too put-on.

  • You know it's hard to avoid that.

  • I think early on in your career in a short set like this.

  • I would do it differently now but I liked what she did.

  • I love how I'm treating her like a different person.

  • (laughing loudly)

  • (bright upbeat music playing)

  • I just went out and got an IUD.

  • No sir, not a urinary tract infection.

  • (audience laughing softly) It's an intrauterine device.

  • And it's birth control, lasts five years,

  • goes right in your uterus.

  • It's the only time I'll say uterus.

  • Ah, said it again.

  • (audience laughing loudly) (Beth laughing loudly)

  • So I went in for my consultation and the lady was like,

  • Beth, everything looks good.

  • A fun fact, didn't know if you knew this,

  • but your uterus is actually tilted backwards.

  • Did you know that?

  • I was like, okay.

  • So what you're telling me is even my uterus is like, mm mm.

  • (audience laughing loudly)

  • It's the first time I've seen a uterus with personality.

  • Oh yeah, yeah. (Buck laughing loudly)

  • No, that's true.

  • I do like that joke like I said at the beginning.

  • I've added a line since, I don't like how I made her voice

  • but this is, now I'm just tearing myself apart.

  • But um, when she says your uterus is tilted backwards,

  • did you know that?

  • And I added a line later that says, don't know how I could.

  • You never stop tinkering with material.

  • Yeah I'm always tinkering.

  • We'd literally had like set a date to tape the special

  • just so you would stop tinkering.

  • Like that was the only way

  • you would stop. (Beth laughing loudly)

  • (audience clapping loudly) That was great.

  • Thank you. That was fun.

  • Thank you very much. Thanks so much.

  • Great job, Beth Stelling. Very funny.

  • I was like, it's so cool he's walking over. Oh my God.

  • I felt like really excited that he was walking over.

  • And I don't know if it's cause like, I don't know.

  • I didn't think, even my head I probably imagine bombing

  • and him sitting at the desk like, you know,

  • (Buck laughing loudly) but

  • it doesn't feel real I guess.

  • So when he came over and shook my hand,

  • I was like, can't believe this is real.

  • And even still, I was like waiting for it to air that night,

  • like maybe it's not gonna air.

  • (bright upbeat music playing)

  • Do you see a good one?

  • It's almost like you're going like,

  • (mild clattering)

  • (Buck laughing loudly) You're like...

  • How far do I scroll down?

  • How far can I get before it says like, die?

  • I pulled a few that I need to share with you.

  • (Beth laughing)

  • Oh no. Okay.

  • farflungfloyd said,

  • I'm going to assume that she's stoned out of her mind.

  • It's just my like, like I said, it's my,

  • that's just how it comes out of me.

  • I get up there and I'm like I feel the pressure

  • and I'm just like stay calm.

  • Just do your thing.

  • Eden Shizzle said, reminds me of Kate McKinnon

  • had a child with Chelsea Handler and Melissa Villasenor.

  • Interesting. That's a wide range of people.

  • I like it. (Buck laughing)

  • (bright upbeat music progressing)

  • Over to my right, you've got Kevin Nealon watching,

  • which did actually make me feel good.

  • It didn't make me feel the risks. He's so great.

  • And I can't remember if it was before or after my set,

  • he introduced me to his parents that were there.

  • So that made me feel so good. And they were very kind.

  • And Kevin came over to me after Conan did and he was like,

  • ooh, I love your style. You're so unique.

  • I wrote it down somewhere

  • so I can't remember the exact quote.

  • But I remember writing it down

  • to remember what Kevin said to me.

  • And then since I've got to do shows with them

  • at the Laugh Factory and stuff

  • and he just emailed me yesterday about Girl Daddy

  • and he said such kind things.

  • So like I always have a special place

  • for Kevin Nealon in my heart.

  • And if you remember,

  • Ben Stiller was there. Like yeah.

  • So it said Beth Stelling on my dressing room

  • and then next to it, Ben Stiller.

  • And I took a picture next to the Ben Stiller one

  • 'cause BS, you know.

  • But um, our initials.

  • And so then we were shooting something for whatever it is,

  • The Incredible Life of Walter Mitty,

  • that movie that he was in?

  • Where he's on Conan and in the movie?

  • So I like got to be there for that too which was so cool.

  • And Ben walked by me and said something nice too.

  • And I was like, my mind was blown.

  • You know like, oh my God,

  • I can't believe I met Ben Stiller

  • and Kevin Nealon

  • and J.P. Buck.

  • (Buck laughing loudly)

  • It's cool to think obviously, eight years later,

  • that you guys and Conan produced my hour special.

  • I've grown and changed so much.

  • You've grown a lot since then

  • but it was really a lot of fun working on that set with you.

  • And it's just great

  • that we're still doing this stuff together.

  • Girl Daddy on HBO Max.

  • Girl Daddy. Team Coco.

  • HBO Max.

  • And I've been your male hostess today, J.P. Buck.

  • (Beth laughing) (Beth whispering)

  • (Buck laughing)

It's so cringe but I'm excited to watch it with you.
