  • And it's right up to the last second.

  • Usually do standup or you do a song with the band.

  • Or I did -- I used to do Rolling Stones

  • when I was on the show. -Which song?

  • and he introduces me and I force karaoke upon --

  • upon the crowd.

  • But it's a good time.

  • You know, it's good to get the energy up.

  • And I get my little jitters out from seeing people staring at me

  • and stuff like that.

  • -Get your nerves out. I remember I did --

  • I worked -- I did such --

  • I really went for this song so hard.

  • And I was pretending I was Mick Jagger --

  • -You were playing. -And Keith Richards.

  • I was playing the guitar and singing,

  • then I laid on the ground. I flipped --

  • You know, this is pro-COVID. I was laying on people.

  • -This is before the show even starts?

  • -Before the show even started. And then I was in a sketch,

  • the cold open sketch. -Yeah, yeah.

  • five seconds." You know? And you go --

  • -Voice blown. -Yup.

  • -My voice is blown every week. -Sweaty.

  • -"And live from New York --" [ Laughter ]

  • -"Hold on a second. Rachel, you say it.

  • You say it. I can't talk." -It's intense.

  • But, I mean -- but, you know, it's a specific kind of love

  • you have for entertaining, I think, you know?

  • -Yeah. -And that comes through

  • when you're, I guess, chosen to be in that role

  • of even warming up the audience before we do an awesome show.

  • -Yeah. 'Cause it's like -- "Yeah, we want this show

  • to be -- we're a team." -Yeah, man.

  • -We want everyone to score. -I want everybody to experience

  • -Yeah. That was amazing, right?

  • [ Applause ] -Incredible.

  • -Isn't that cool? -All three of them

  • were very -- I thought it was funny how she stubbed her toe

  • a little less after that first one.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -She got a little bit too real. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

  • It's like, "Ooh, that was a really --"

  • Yeah, method actor. -Yeah. That was incredible.

  • And all the way from Italy. Come on.

  • The global unite.

  • -You have Dave Chappelle hosting this Saturday.

  • -Whew! -First of all, it's the sixth--

  • Yeah, I mean, come on. [ Applause ]

  • But a six-show run is pretty amazing,

  • and to end it with Dave Chappelle who's just,

  • I mean, brilliant. -Come on. I mean, who better?

  • You know what I'm saying?

  • Especially since it's a resurgence

  • of the last four year when he made his appearance.

  • You know what I mean? -Was that four years?

  • -Yeah. -Geez.

  • -And it was, you know, just an electric week then.

  • So I know the show Saturday is going to be powerful.

  • It's going to be very, very powerful.

  • So -- I'm going to be honest. He complimented us yesterday.

  • He made an insane speech, you know, before the table read.

  • Did the same thing years ago.

  • But I mean, the guy is just such a prolific speaker.

  • You know what I'm saying?

  • And he speaks from the heart, and a brilliant mind.

  • And it's such a pleasure to be around.

  • I mean, y'all know. -Yeah.

  • Yeah, you went to his thing in -- in Ohio, right?

  • -That's right.

  • -That's -- he's just -- I -- he's like a -- beyond --

  • I don't want to say wordsmith, it's beyond that.

  • He's a poet. He's like -- it's so many things.

  • But funny.

  • Dude, I remember back in the day when we --

  • I used to do stand-up and see him.

  • This is when -- does he still smoke on stage?

  • -Constantly. -Yeah.

  • -He smoked more than I've ever seen,

  • and he was like -- and just lighting up the whole thing.

  • And this was like -- I don't know what --

  • I guess if they banned cigarettes,

  • that have a weird scene. -Yeah.

  • He almost does it on purpose, I feel like now.

  • -Exactly, yeah.

  • Keith Richards was here, and he smoked and the alarms went off.

  • -Yeah.

  • -And I went into his dressing room.

  • -"Isn't this this cool?" -Yeah. No, I said to him,

  • I go, "Keith, you know you can't smoke."

  • He goes, "I know, it's bad for your health, right?"

  • [ Laughter ]

  • He knows what's up. It's Keith Richards, man.

  • -He's fine. He'll be fine. -Can you -- look at this.

  • That's you -- -Look at that.

  • -Tracy Morgan, Eddie Murphy, Chris rock, Dave Chappelle.

  • What was this feeling like?

  • -First of all, it was the Christmas show,

  • so Merry Christmas to me.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -Yeah. -Those guys --

  • those are four legends I'm standing next to.

  • You know what I'm saying? You know, going down the line,

  • Tracy is my brother, you know.

  • He was the first person to embrace me,

  • because I came in right when he left.

  • You know what I'm saying? -That's right.

  • -He took me to T.G.I. Friday's for lunch.

  • Like, "Let's go to Friday's." [ Laughter ]

  • -Dude, that sounds real. -It was very real.

  • -The one right down the street?

  • -Yeah, in his Cadillac Escalade pickup truck.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • He pulled it out of the garage on 48th Street.

  • -I love him. -We drove around --

  • -I love him. -50th to --

  • -You could walk -- -Back to 48th and Fifth.

  • -You could walk to it. [ Laughter ]

  • -Just because he wanted us to see his ride

  • and he wanted... -Yeah.

  • -...to flex on two and a half blocks.

  • I always felt him for that.

  • -That's actually legendary. -Stepping up.

  • -You could throw a rock and hit T.G.I. Friday's

  • from our building. -Exactly.

  • Next to him, you have the legendary Dave Chappelle, man,

  • who yesterday told me that I was good at my job,

  • and I almost cried, you know what I'm saying?

  • Like... -Seriously?

  • -The dude is -- I mean, as far as the pinnacle of people

  • I look up to in the voice of my generation, it's that guy.

  • You know? And next to him,

  • the legendary Eddie Murphy, man,

  • the first black movie superstar, you know?

  • And just the first person that meant everything

  • to every single person in my family.

  • You know what I'm saying? Everything he did, we all,

  • like, laughed really hard and embraced.

  • You know what I'm saying? -Of course.

  • -So next to him, you have Chris Rock,

  • who is brilliant in his own lane.

  • He carved a lane so strong

  • that I don't think anybody can say he's not

  • probably the greatest --

  • probably stand-up specials that HBO ever had.

  • You know what I'm saying? -Ever.

  • -That whole run that he did is so solid and still --

  • -Changed the game. -Brilliant in his mind.

  • He's killing it on "Fargo" right now.

  • You know what I'm saying? -Yeah, he is, by the way.

  • -So I could run down the credits of those dudes all day long.

  • And shout-out to Michael Che

  • for even writing me in that moment, man.

  • Like, I'm just -- like, I'm floored when I see it.

  • -And how about the person holding this picture?

  • [ Laughter ] -And the -- and --

  • -That's -- -If you zoom in

  • on the pink knuckles around --

  • [ Laughter ]

  • They belong to --

  • -Zoom in on the pink knuckles.

  • -They belong to my brother James Fallon, who...

  • [ Laughter ]

  • ...is probably one of the funniest people

  • I've ever been around in my entire life.

  • -Thank you. That's all I wanted, yeah.
