  • -You can see my first guest every weekday on "The View."

  • Her 2020 holiday collection is available.

  • Now, look at this. Look at this scarf.

  • Can you see that? It moves. It has things.

  • Nordstrom.com.

  • You can also see her in Stephen King's "The Stand,"

  • which premieres December 17th exclusively on CBS All Access.

  • Look at this. Here she is,

  • Whoopi Goldberg!

  • Whoopi! -Whoo! Yay!

  • -You are the best. I love you, buddy.

  • Always something fun.

  • Always festive.

  • You are the best. Why should this year be any different?

  • -Well, you know, I thought about that.

  • I thought to myself, "What do I do?"

  • And I knew I couldn't do a sweater,

  • 'cause who was going out?

  • Nobody. -Yeah.

  • -[ Chuckles ] Nobody's going out.

  • They're not partying in sweaters.

  • -Nope. -No.

  • So let's do scarfs and masks.

  • -Scarves and -- And it's so warm and it's good and --

  • -Yeah.

  • -We need comedians at this time in our life.

  • -Yes. We are very important to everything, I think.

  • -I agree.

  • And another tradition that you --

  • See, even through Zoom, you come through.

  • -It breaks my heart. I couldn't bring you --

  • 'Cause you know I always like to bring you sweets.

  • And all I could do was give you one cupcake.

  • -But look at it. -One cupcake.

  • -Look at that. Look at that, though.

  • You did still deliver,

  • and, honestly, Whoopi, you have to see.

  • Dave, could we have a two shot

  • so Whoopi could see where I'm at, the wide shot?

  • This is me here. There's nobody here.

  • -Ah. -Hi, buddy.

  • There's no Roots. There's nobody.

  • But we're gonna get there.

  • But right now, it's just me and my cupcake.

  • -Well, that's not bad.

  • -And I'm gonna take a bite for good luck right now,

  • because if this is from Whoopi,

  • it's always good luck and good vibes.

  • Mmm!

  • -It's incredibly sweet, isn't it?

  • I can see your teeth are rolling up.

  • [ Laughing, stammering ]

  • Yeah. Yeah.

  • That's what happens when I give it to my granddaughter,

  • my great-granddaughter. She's like, "Ooh, sugar!"

  • -Yeah. That's like a Red Bull right there.

  • -It's absolutely true.

  • -That is delicious. Magnolia. -Yes.

  • -But I like your background, what you have back there.

  • Are you into the Baby Yoda, it looks like?

  • -I am. I love --

  • You know, I love him.

  • -I do, too. -Because he's looking --

  • He wants to go home.

  • But the thing that I love, like, a lot

  • is that I have a relationship.

  • Watch. Oh.

  • [ Toy coos ]

  • -Are you joking?

  • -You rub his head like this.

  • -Oh, no! [ Toy coos ]

  • Oh, my gosh.

  • He is -- [ Toy whooshing ]

  • Are you joking me?

  • I love it!

  • -Is that the greatest?

  • -How great is that show, by the way?

  • Jon Favreau just crushing it.

  • -You know, he does an extraordinary job,

  • and it's just great.

  • And you want to be part of it, and you want to watch.

  • And, you know, it's fun, and, you know, you need it.

  • And you need a Baby Yoda in your life.

  • -You know what I saw?

  • There's a documentary on The Comedy Store

  • that I was flipping through the channels,

  • and you were on it, and I could not stop watching it.

  • I watched the whole -- -And Mike Binder did it.

  • -Mike Binder, and I was like -- At first, I go,

  • "Who is he? I know him.

  • But I forget where I know him from.

  • His voice is familiar." Then I go, "Oh, Mike Binder.

  • I totally know Mike Binder."

  • He directed "Indian Summer,"

  • which is one of my favorite movies.

  • But talk to me about The Comedy Store.

  • What do you remember about it?

  • Because it's a comedy club in Los Angeles,

  • and there's three rooms, is it?

  • Or two on the floor?

  • -There was two...

  • -And then, one upstairs. -...and then, one upstairs

  • which was The Belly Room.

  • -That's The Belly Room. -Yeah, yeah.

  • And I got really lucky.

  • Only female comics --

  • That's where Mitzi put all the females.

  • And then she -- When my show really sort of took off,

  • she just gave me The Belly Room

  • to perform in for as long as I wanted.

  • And that's what I did and had the greatest time.

  • And, you know, all the great comics,

  • like, all the great comics.

  • -Like Rodney.

  • -Rodney Dangerfield.

  • And watching Richard Pryor do what he did from the wheelchair.

  • He was in the wheelchair and still slaying people.

  • He would say stuff, and you think, "You are saying this,

  • and your life has shifted, and here you are,

  • and you are still, you know, bar none,

  • one of the greats."

  • And, also, Robin I saw there quite a bit.

  • And it's a wonderful --

  • It's a wonderful memory,

  • 'cause you just -- You don't think about it

  • while you're doing it. -While you're doing it.

  • -You only realize how amazing it was when you get past it

  • and you're doing your own thing.

  • And they were all like, "What do you do?"

  • I was like, "Well, I kind of tell stories."

  • And they were like, "Really?" I was like, "Yeah."

  • They said, "Okay, let's go and see."

  • So, you know, 'cause people would say,

  • "Well, you're not a stand-up."

  • And I was like, "No, I'm not, 'cause I can't tell jokes."

  • I can mess up a joke better than anybody.

  • You know, I just -- I'm not good at them.

  • But I'm a good storyteller.

  • -But is that where Mike Nichols came to see you?

  • -No, Mike came to see me downtown in Manhattan.

  • It was great, 'cause he was taking --

  • He was doing all three plays at the same time,

  • "Hurleyburley," "Death of a Salesman," and "The Real Thing."

  • -Whoa.

  • -So he decided --

  • They would take each other to different shows,

  • and that was the show that he got taken to.

  • And it was quite amazing to see him,

  • because he would say, you know, "Ms. Goldberg, how are you?"

  • And I'd be, "I'm fine.

  • I'm fine." [ Both laugh ]

  • And my mother was like, "That's Mike Nichols."

  • -Yeah. Gosh. -They would point and look

  • and, you know. -Genius.

  • -It's still to me as ridiculous and fabulous as it was day one.

  • The whole ride is ridiculous and fabulous to me.

  • -Yeah, I agree.

  • And you're acting again, which is great.

  • You're in Stephen King's "The Stand."

  • I want to talk to you about this.

  • I know that you would be totally into it,

  • and you're like, "Oh, this is perfect. I want to be in this."

  • So let's talk about Stephen King when we come back, alright?

  • More with Whoopi Goldberg when we come back, everybody.

  • -[ Rapping indistinctly ]

  • Yeah, on top of the boss meter

-You can see my first guest every weekday on "The View."
