  • "FANTASTIC! WITH DANA CARVEY."

  • >> YES.

  • >> Stephen: WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO GET INTO THE PODCAST

  • GAME, DANA?

  • >> I ALWAYS TOLD MY MANAGER, I SAID WHEN THERE'S 2 MILLION OF

  • THEM, COUNT ME IN.

  • I'M NOT JUST GOING TO JOIN A FAD.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) NO, I GOT SOME STRUCTURE.

  • MY BRAIN WAS SLOWING DOWN, SO I THOUGHT, IF STEPHEN COLBERT CAN

  • DO FIVE HOURS OF TELEVISION A WEEK, I CAN TALK INTO A MIC FOR

  • 45 MINUTES.

  • SO YOU WERE THE IMPETUS.

  • BUT MY SON, HE WAS THE ONE WHO SAID LET'S DO ONE WORD -- HE'S

  • IN HIS 20s -- LET'S DO ONE WORD, DON'T DO A FANCY THING

  • LIKE DANA WANTS THIS.

  • LET'S DO JUST ONE WORD.

  • I SAY FANTASTIC A LOT.

  • >> Stephen: SURE.

  • AND I USE IT IN PASSIVE-AGGRESSIVE, IRONIC WAY

  • RATHER THAN NEGATIVE.

  • SO IF I'M DRIVING DOWN THE STREET AND SEE A YUPPY WANDERING

  • IN THE INTERSECTION CAUSING TRAFFIC AND MAIHEM ON THE CELL

  • PHONE, INSTEAD OF SAYING WHAT THE ( BLEEP ), I SAY FANTASTIC

  • >> Stephen: VERY HEALTHY.

  • IT'S VERY HEALTHY.

  • THERE'S MORE COVID VARIANTS -- FANTASTIC!

  • THAT'S THE IRONY.

  • THAT'S HOW YOU CAN USE IT.

  • IT'S FANTASTIC.

  • >> Stephen: I HAVE A SIMILAR THING.

  • MY SIMILAR THING IS THAT MY EXECUTIVE HERE TOM PURCELL AND I

  • HAVE A THING WHERE SOMEBODY SAYS, OH, THIS THING IS GOING TO

  • HAPPEN AND I DON'T LIKE IT, AND I GO, DO I HAVE ANY CONTROL OVER

  • THAT?

  • AND THEY SAY, NO.

  • THEN I SAY, I LOVE IT.

  • THEN I LOVE IT.

  • >> THAT'S IT.

  • I ALWAYS SAY SWEET CHEEKS WHEN I'M DRIVING AROUND, I SAY, LET'S

  • GO, SWEET CHEEKS, COME ON, SWEETHEART, COME ON, LET'S GO.

  • BECAUSE I DON'T WANT TO BE NEGATIVE AND ANGRY ALL THE TIME,

  • I'M HAPPY DANA!

  • DO YOU BELIEVE ME?

  • IT'S JUST ONE BIG PARTY.

  • >> Stephen: WHO'S YOUR CO-HOST?

  • WHO'S CHRIS RIOS?

  • I NEVER HEARD TO HAVE THIS PESON.

  • I DON'T KNOW WHETHER TO TRUST HIM.

  • >> SHE
