  • IT READ AS PUNCHY AS IT WAS SUPPOSED TO.

  • YEAH, THEY ARE ALL WAITING WITH INVESTED INTEREST IN THE WAY

  • AMERICA IS GOING TO SWING.

  • >> Stephen: YOU ALSO HAVE A BIG WEEK BECAUSE IT'S YOUR FIRST

  • PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION NOW THAT YOU'RE AN AMERICAN CITIZEN.

  • >> YES.

  • >> Stephen: SO YOU'RE ALLOWED TO VOTE.

  • A, THAT'S SO EXCITING.

  • >> IT'S AMAZING.

  • >> Stephen: CONGRATULATIONS ON HAVING BEEN MADE A CITIZEN

  • BEFORE.

  • THIS BUT WHAT DID IT FEEL LIKE TO GO PULL THE LEVER OR HOWEVER

  • THEY DID IT AT YOUR POLLING PLACE?

  • >> THAT WAS NO LEVER.

  • THAT WAS DISCI'S APPOINTING.

  • HONESTLY, IT WAS AMAZING.

  • PUTTING ASIDE THE CANDIDATES IN THIS ELECTION FOR A MOMENT,

  • WHICH ALREADY I FEEL SORRY ABOUT IT, PUTTING THAT ASIDE, AS AN

  • IMMIGRANT WHO JUST GOT HIS CITIZENSHIP IN DECEMBER OF LAST

  • YEAR, I WAS WAITING FOR THAT TO FEEL REAL.

  • BUT WHEN YOU WORRY ABOUT YOUR IMMIGRATION STATUS ALL THE TIME

  • AND EVEN GETTING YOUR PASSPORT DOESN'T FEEL REAL BECAUSE YOU

  • HAVEN'T TESTED IT AGAINST A SYSTEM.

  • BUT I THOUGHT THIS WILL FEEL DIFFERENTLY WHEN I LEAVE

  • AMERICA, COME BACK AND AM TREATED DIFFERENTLY BY THE

  • SYSTEM.

  • STANDING IN LINE, I THOUGHT MAYBE THIS WILL BE IT.

  • I DIDN'T FEEL IT.

  • GIVING THEM MY NAME AND GETTING THE BALLOT, I DIDN'T FEEL IT.

  • SCANNING IT INTO THE MACHINE AND THE MACHINE SAYING YOU'RE R YOUR

  • VOTE HAS BEEN COUNTED, I NEARLY BURST INTO TEARS.

  • THAT IS THE TRUTH.

  • MY EYES GOT MISTY AND I THOUGHT, I DON'T KNOW IF I CAN CRY IN THE

  • VOTING STATION.

  • >> Stephen: THAT'S LOVELY.

  • I DIDN'T WANT TO WAIT FOR THE MACHINE TO SAY YOUR VOTE HAS

  • BEEN COUNTED, ASTERISK, YOU LIVE IN NEW YORK, SO IT'S COUNTED.

  • >> Stephen: SORT OF.

  • SO GIVE ME A BALLPARK OF HOW MANY HOURS YOU WERE IN LINE.

  • WAS IT HOURS?

  • >> YEAH, I WAS PROBABLY -- YOU MEAN START TO FINISH --

  • >> Stephen: JOIN THE LINE.

  • THAT'S HOW LINES WORK.

  • JOIN THE LINE.

  • OUT OF LINE.

  • THE QUEUE.

  • DOES THAT HELP?

  • >> MUCH BETTER.

  • I WAS IN THE QUEUE AN HOUR AND A HALF

  • >> Stephen: COMPARE THAT TO VOTING IN U.K.

  • YOU GUYS JUST GO TO PUBS THERE.

  • YOU EITHER PICK A PICKLED EGG OR SCOTCH EGG AND THEY KNOW THAT'S

  • WWHAT PARTY YOU'RE VOTING FOR?

  • >> I WISH IT WASN'T TRUE, BUT, YEAH, YOU WALK UP TO THE BAR AND

  • YOU SAY, ALL RIGHT, GOVERNOR, I TAKE THE PICKLED EGG.

  • REALLY, VOTING FOR THATCHER AGAIN?

  • I AM.

  • YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THIS, I THINK LINES HAVE BEEN NORMALIZED

  • IN AMERICA.

  • I THINK THAT EVERYONE ELSE STANDS IN LINE FOR HOURS.

  • >> Stephen: THERE ARE NOT LINES OVER THERE?

  • >> NO, IT'S NOT LINES.

  • IT'S ABSOLUTE MADNESS TO STAND -- TO HAVE TO STAND IN

  • LINE FOR THAT LONG IS AN ABSOLUTE DISGRACE WHEREVER YOU

  • ARE.

  • NOBODY ELSE HAS TO STAND IN LINE FOR SEVEN, NINE, ELEVEN HOURS,

  • WHATEVER YOU'RE HEARING ABOUT.

  • IT'S ABSURD.

  • >> Stephen: NOW THAT YOU VOTED AND YOU FEEL MORE AMERICAN, HAVE

  • YOU THOUGHT ABOUT LOSING THE ACCENT?

  • >> UM -- >> Stephen: HAVE YOU PUT ANY

  • EFFORT INTO IT, BY THE WAY?

  • >> I THINK WHAT I'M SCROLLING THROUGH IS WHICH ACCENT DO I

  • PICK?

  • IF YOU'RE GOING TO GET TO REINVENT YOURSELF, AM I DOING

  • BRONX, AM I GOING INTO KIND OF 1950 SOUTH, AM I GOING TO THE

  • CALIFORNIA SURFER.

  • >> Stephen: DELAWARE.

  • DELAWARE, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

  • FLAT.

  • NEWSCASTER.

  • >> REALLY.

  • >> Stephen: YES, A MANILA ENVELOPE TAPED TO A BEIGE WALL.

  • NO CHARACTER.

  • NO CHARACTER AT ALL.

  • >> ALL RIGHT, I'LL LOOK INTO THAT.

  • >> Stephen: YEAH.

  • I MIGHT GO WITH A REALLY INTENSE BALTIMORE ACCENT.

  • >> Stephen: THOSE ARE DIFFICULT TO DO.

  • >> YEAH, THOSE NOISES DON'T MAKE ANY SENSE.

  • >> Stephen: GIVE ME A TASTE.

  • I HAVE NO IDEA.

  • >> Stephen: OH, SO CLOSE!

  • JUST SAY I GOT STUCK IN THE FORT McHENRY TUNNEL.

  • >> LITERALLY, I WAS ABOUT TO HAVE A SWING AT THAT AND THERE

  • WAS SOMETHING IN MY BODY WENT THAT SOUND CAN'T COME OUT.

  • IT'S ACTUALLY NOT OKAY.

  • >> Stephen: JOHN, WE HAVE TO DO THAT COMMERCIAL THING YOU

  • NEVER HAVE TO DEAL WITH.

  • STICK AROUND, BACK WITH MORE JOHN OLIVER.
