  • WHEN MY SOFNS LITTLE, IT WAS CRAZY, BECAUSE WE WOULD WALK

  • THROUGH MALLS, AND WHEN YOU ARE TWO NOBODY PREPARED YOU IN

  • HEAVEN FOR THE FACT THAT PEOPLE BARKED AT YOUR FATHER.

  • ONE DAY HE DID ASK, "WHY DO THEY BARK?"

  • I HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO SAY, WOOT!

  • WOOT!

  • AND THEY MAKE DIFFERENT NOISES.

  • A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T REALIZE IT'S A DOG, STEPHEN.

  • >> Stephen: THE DOG POUND, HOW COULD THEY NOT KNOW?

  • >> I SWEAR TO YOU, TWICE A WEEK, SOMEONE SAYS ON TWITTER "WOOT,

  • WOOT" OR WOOO, WOOO.

  • THAT'S A JEFFREY OSBORN SONG, THAT'S A WHOLE DIFFERENT GUY.

  • >> Stephen: AT LEAST THEY'RE BARKING AT THEIR FATHER IN A

  • FRIENDLY WAY.

  • IT'S AFFECTIONATE.

  • >> OH, YES, I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN THANKFUL FOR THAT.

  • PEOPLE WHO CONFRONT ME, IT'S ALWAYS POSITIVE.

  • IT MAY BE ANNOYING BUT NOT MEAN.

  • I DIDN'T EXPECT THAT REACTION.

  • OH...

  • THAT MUST BE NICE.

  • I WANT TO-- I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE NEW MOVIE.

  • WE CAN SEE THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL, BUT HOWS THAT THE

  • TUNNEL BEEN FOR YOU?

  • >> WOW, IT'S BEEN INCREDIBLE.

  • FIRST OF ALL, IF YOUR RELATIONSHIP CAN LAST THROUGH

  • THIS, YOU KNOW YOU HAVE A GOOD RELATIONSHIP, BECAUSE A LOT OF

  • RELATIONSHIPS HAVE FALLEN BY THE WAYSIDE DURING THIS.

  • IT'S HARD WHEN YOU CAN'T LEAVE AND YOU'RE JUST WITH THE ONE YOU

  • LOVE.

  • SO ME AND MY GIRL ARE DOING GREAT.

  • MY SON, HE TESTS HIMSELF AND COMES TO VISIT DAD SOMETIMES,

  • BECAUSE HE DOESN'T WANT TO KILL DAD.

  • >> Stephen: THAT'S NICE.

  • >> MY MOM, I'M SPENDING A LOT OF MONEY ON YARN AND WEED-- OF

  • COURSE WE'D FOR ME, AND YARN FOR HER.

  • >> Stephen: OH, LIKE WHAT KIND OF HATS?

  • ARE WE TALKING KNIT CAPS AND STUFF LIKE THAT?

  • >> YEAH, SHE'S MADE, THIS YEAR, 79 HATS.

  • AND HERE'S HOW CRAZY IT IS: YOU KNOW, I'VE DONE 40 INTERVIEWS

  • THIS WEEK.

  • BUT MY MOTHER MADE A HAT FOR YOU.

  • AND IT'S-- I THINK SHE SAW YOU WITH ANDERSON COOPER, AND

  • ANYBODY SHE SEES WITH ANDERSON COOPER, SHE LOVES, WHICH I THINK

  • IS A MISTAKE AS A RULE OF THUMB.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) BUT FOR SOME REASON, SHE'S A

  • HUGE FAN-- AND I'M GOING TO-- I'M GOING TO MAIL IT TO YOU.

  • SHE ACTUALLY MADE YOU A HAT.

  • >> Stephen: DO YOU HAVE IT THERE?

  • CAN YOU SHOW ME?

  • >> OH, I HAD IT.

  • WE BOXED IT UP, AND WE'RE GOING TO SEND IT.

  • APPARENTLY, THERE'S A BOB MACKIE KIOSK AT HER HOUSE.

  • I DON'T KNOW HOW SHE GOT THIS BOX.

  • BUT...

  • IT'S A SPARKLY GLITTER BOX.

  • AND SHE MADE YOU THIS HAT.

  • AND SHE PUT HER NAME ON IT!

  • >> Stephen: I'M HONORED.

  • PLEASE TELL YOUR MOTHER, I'M HONORED.

  • >> SHE-- HER NAME IS ANNIE HALL.

  • BUT SHE PUT ANNIE M. HALL, BECAUSE SHE'S STILL MAD AT WOODY

  • ALLEN.

  • SHE THINKS HE OWES HER MONEY OR SOMETHING.

  • >> Stephen: A LOT-- A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE MAD AT HIM THESE

  • DAYS.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) OKAY, WELL, LET'S GET TO THE

  • HEAT OF THE MEAT HERE.

  • YOU AND I HAVE SOMETHING IN COMMON THAT JUST NOT A LOT OF

  • PEOPLE DO IS THAT HOSTING A NETWORK LATE-NIGHT SHOW, THE

  • "THE ARSENIO HALL SHOW," THE FIRST TIME IT WAS ON, WHAT WAS

  • THE RUN?

  • WAS IT 89 IN '95 OR SOMETHING?

  • WHAT WAS THE FIRST RUN?

  • >> YEAH, IT WAS LIKE A SIX-YEAR RUN, AND THEN I STEPPED AWAY AND

  • HAD A KID AND DID A LOT OF WONDERFUL THINGS-- NOT MUCH

  • WORK.

  • AND THE SECOND-- I DID A REBOOT THAT LASTED A YEAR.

  • I DON'T KNOW HOW YOU DO WHAT YOU DO, MAN.

  • LIKE, YOU DID A JOKE LAST NIGHT, A BUTT DIALING FROM MARS JOKE.

  • I WAS DYING IN MY HOME.

  • BUT I WAS LIKE HOW IS HE PACING HIMSELF?

  • HOW IS HE TIMING HIMSELF?

  • HE'S THERE WITH LIKE THREE WHITE GUYS.

  • >> Stephen: TWO, TWO WHITE GUYS, AND THEY'RE ALMOST AS

  • WHITE AS I AM.

  • >> TRUST ME, THE BUTT DIALING JOKE WOULD HAVE KILLED AT THE

  • APOLLO.

  • >> Stephen: GOOD!

  • GOOD!

  • I WANT TO TALK ABOUT HOW THAT SHOW STARTED.

  • WHERE-- WHERE-- FIRST OF ALL, YOU WERE UP AGAINST-- I KNOW YOU

  • SAID YOU WEREN'T REALLY IN COMPETITION WITH JOHNNY, BUT

  • UPPER OPPOSITE JOHNNY, YOU KNOW, THE UNDISPUTED KING OF ALL.

  • AND WHAT DOES THAT FEEL LIKE TO START THAT SHOW?

  • I MEAN, WHAT WERE THE-- WHAT WERE THE BUTTERFLIES LIKE?

  • >> IT WAS-- IT WAS-- IT WAS AMAZING.

  • BECAUSE INITIALLY, YOU KNOW HOW LATE NIGHT CAN GET.

  • I THOUGHT THAT I WOULD NO LONGER BE HIS GUY.

  • I HAD MET HIM.

  • WE HAD TALKED ABOUT MAGIC, BECAUSE WE BOTH WERE MAGICIAN S.

  • >> Stephen: YOU HAVE TO SHOW THIS PHOTO OF YOU.

  • LOOK AT THE LAUGH YOU'RE GETTING OUT OF JOHNNY CARSON.

  • >> HEY, THAT'S WHAT EVERY COMIC WANTS.

  • IF YOU CAN MAKE JOHNNY CARSON GO BACK, THAT'S WHAT EVERY COMIC

  • WANTS.

  • DURING THE COMMERCIAL-- LIKE I SAID I WAS A MAGICIAN AS A KID

  • AND WE TALKED ABOUT THAT AND HE DID A COIN TRICK FOR ME.

  • AND HE DID SOMETHING WE DON'T DO NOW.

  • HE WAS SMOKING, PUT THE CIGARETTE UNDER THE DESK.

  • IT WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE.

  • AND ED McMAHON WOULD CALL ME SOMETIMES, JOHNNY WOULD TELL ED

  • TO CALL ME AND GIVE ME NAMES.

  • >> Stephen: WOW!

  • WAIT, I STEPPED ON THAT A LITTLE BIT.

  • JOHNNY WOULD TELL ED TO CALL YOU AND GIVE YOU NAMES FOR GUESTS OR

  • SOMETHING?

  • >> LIKE SOMETIMES JOHNNY WOULD COME ACROSS SOMEBODY HE THOUGHT

  • WAS REALLY GREAT, BUT HE DIDN'T DISCOVER TALENT.

  • ME BEING THE YOUNG GUY, I WOULD PUT ON A NEW MARIAH CAREY OR

  • WILL SMITH.

  • THEY GAVE ME USHER RAYMOND ONCE, BECAUSE I GUESS ED KNEW HIM FROM

  • "STAR SEARCH."

  • SO TO KNOW THAT NOT ONLY HE DOESN'T HATE ME, BUT HE TRIES TO

  • HELP ME BECAUSE THE PATHS WERE SO-- SO DIVIDED, SO DISTINCTLY

  • DIVIDED.

  • YOU KNOW, YOU KNEW WHO A JOHNNY GUEST WAS, AND YOU KNEW WHO AN

  • ARSENIO GUEST WAS.

  • >> Stephen: ARE YOU TELLING ME THAT JOHNNY CARSON TOLD ED

  • McMAHON TO TELL ARSENIO HALL TO BOOK USHER?

  • >> YES, AND I THINK HE SAID, "MAKE SURE HE KNOWS ABOUT

  • SINBAD."

  • >> Stephen: I HEARD A STORY-- I HEARD A STORY-- IS IT TRUE YOU

  • HAD WILL SMITH ON, AND HE GOT PITCHED FOR "THE FRESH PRINCE"

  • BACKSTAGE?

  • >> YES, WILL WOULD STOP BY SOMETIMES JUST TO HANG OUT.

  • MY GREEN ROOM WAS LIKE THIS INCREDIBLE CLUBHOUSE.

  • I WAS LIKE THE CNN OF HIP HOP.

  • EVERYBODY WOULD GATHER THERE.

  • THERE WAS NO TWITTER.

  • I WAS THE BLACK BIRD.

  • THERE WAS NO BLUEBIRD, AND GUYS WOULD HANG OUT.

  • AND ONCE QUINCY SAID, "WHEN WILL COMES BY--" I TOLD QUINCY, HE'S

  • THERE ALL THE TIME.

  • "WHEN WILL COMES BY, I'D LIKE TO PITCH SOMETHING TO HIM."

  • AT SOME POINT, WE PUT THEM IN AN EMPTY DRESSY ROOM.

  • BENNIE MEDINA, WILL PRINCE, WILL'S FRIEND CHARLIE I THINK

  • WAS THERE-- IRRELEVANT TO THE STORY PROBABLY TO YOU-- AND

  • QUINCY JONES.

  • THEY TOOK IT TO NBC-- THE OPPOSING NETWORK-- AND "FRESH

  • PRINCE OF BEL AIR HAPPENED."

  • >> Stephen: WE HAVE TO TAKE A QUICK BREAK, BUT WHEN WE COME

  • BACK, I WILL ASK ARSENIO ABOUT HIS NEW MOVIE "COMING 2

  • AMERICA," AND ASK HIM HOW HE MET EDDIE MURPHY AND HOW THE FIRST

  • MOVIE CAME ABOUT.
