  • -Everyone, please welcome Ken Jeong!

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • -Thank you. -Ken Jeong!

  • ♪♪

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • -That was great.

  • -Wow. That was a standing ovation for you, and --

  • -Thank you.

  • -And -- -That was really good.

  • -It was just a little odd, I would say.

  • Just 'cause -- -Pardon me?

  • -Obviously, usually --

  • Usually, when I introduce you,

  • you come out and you dance or something

  • and you do a big thing.

  • It's a little bit more high energy.

  • That was real low energy.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -It's just -- You know, don't tell me what to do.

  • And then second of all,

  • this is the new Ken. Okay?

  • This is 2020,

  • you know, more cerebral.

  • -Okay. Okay. -Smarter.

  • See, as evidenced by my "Heavy and Light" game.

  • -Yeah. That was good, yeah.

  • -I was second in that competition.

  • So, I'm crushing it right now.

  • -Yeah. There were three people.

  • -And so in light of that --

  • Mm, agree to disagree.

  • And in light of that, what I want to do now, you know,

  • I just kind of want to just be like this, you know?

  • I don't need to be, you know --

  • -High energy? You can't dance when I introduce you?

  • Normally -- You've been on the show probably 10 times.

  • You've always danced coming out.

  • And I think, just, we're all in a little shock,

  • and we can cut it out, but whatever.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • No, it's just --

  • I'm just saying, the audience looks --

  • Expects it from you.

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • Oh. Quest?

  • [ Drum roll ]

  • -Okay.

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • -That's what I wanted to see.

  • That's fantastic!

  • [ Laughing ] Oh, my God. Oh, my God.

  • -Thank you. -Good job.

  • Oh, my goodness. Thank you so much, Ken.

  • Really, please. Now, I'm sorry to make you work that hard.

  • -Thank you. Thank you. I did push-ups and a sit-up!

  • -Oh, my God.

  • -2020, bitches!

  • -Now -- [ Laughter ]

  • I have --

  • Welcome back to our show.

  • -Oh, man. -I'm sorry.

  • I didn't want to make you do that or any of that stuff.

  • -It's okay. I'm just getting older.

  • -No, you look --

  • By the way, I was going to say you look fantastic.

  • -Thank you. But I'm actually --

  • Seriously, I'm actually 50 years old now.

  • I'm not even kidding.

  • -Yeah. -I just turned 50.

  • -Happy birthday. -Thank you very much.

  • And I know I don't look it. I mean, you know what they say.

  • Black don't crack? Well, Asian don't raisin.

  • That's all I'm saying.

  • Ah. [ Cheers and applause ]

  • -No, I've never --

  • Wow.

  • -Oh, they don't say that?

  • -I don't know if I've ever heard that.

  • But -- I don't think they say that at all.

  • -I think that was off a Sun-Maid raisin box.

  • -No, they don't say that on the boxes. They don't have slogans.

  • -Really? Agree to disagree.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -You were telling me backstage

  • that you've been getting into karaoke lately.

  • -Yes. Yes. -This is a big deal. I think --

  • -Thank you. No, even at my 50th birthday party,

  • my wife threw just a big karaoke party in L.A.

  • And it was just so much fun, and --

  • -You also did it on tour in -- You were just in Hawaii.

  • -Yeah, I did. That's true. I was actually --

  • I just did my first shows in Hawaii doing stand-up comedy.

  • I was at the Blaisdell Concert Hall.

  • I had an amazing time on Saturday.

  • -Sold-out show. -Yeah, sold-out shows.

  • It was so nice.

  • Yeah, it's great. [ Cheers and applause ]

  • It's called "The Ken Jeong No Refund Tour."

  • And -- [ Laughter ]

  • And then --

  • But I had some new jokes.

  • I had some new jokes I wanted to prep for the show.

  • I was a little nervous.

  • So, I actually went down the street to this mai tai bar

  • where there was a band already performing.

  • I just wanted to try out like five new jokes.

  • And then, so I did the jokes and bombed.

  • And then they were like,

  • "Oh, well, since you're up, you want to play some music,

  • and, like, you want to do some --"

  • I was like, "Yeah, I'd like to sing a song."

  • And so I ended up just, like, singing "Santeria" for no reason

  • at the mai tai bar in Honolulu.

  • And it's all over online.

  • So, it literally just happened 48 hours ago.

  • -Just because there was a band there?

  • -Just 'cause there was a band there -- It was like

  • my Marty McFly "Back to the Future" Chuck Berry moment

  • that no one should care about.

  • -Yeah. -You know? Yeah, yeah.

  • -Well, it just so happens that there's a band here.

  • [ Cheers and applause ]
