  • I want to get into it, but you did a great job,

  • I want to say, at hosting "Saturday Night Live," as well.

  • -Oh, thank you. [ Cheers and applause ]

  • Thank you.

  • That was real crazy dream come true.

  • -Yeah, it was fun?

  • -Yeah, well, the first time I was ever on TV,

  • I was in an -- in a "Saturday Night Live" sketch.

  • I actually had -- I had two lines in a sketch

  • on "Saturday Night Live."

  • At dress rehearsal, I had three lines,

  • and then I messed up one of my lines,

  • so on the show, I had two lines.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • But I was on -- that was the first time I was on TV,

  • and then, I got to host it years later.

  • -I mean, that's what I'm talking about.

  • Isn't that great? -Yeah.

  • -You think that's your only chance, and you go, "Ah."

  • But you did a great job.

  • -Thank you. I, uh...

  • Steven Spielberg is standing there,

  • and I'm just doing it, I'm like, "Oh, my God.

  • That's definitely Steven Spielberg."

  • [ Laughter ] And I kind of panicked inside

  • and messed up the next line, and then I actually look away,

  • I could see myself composing myself, and then I continue.

  • But before I did this, I actually watched my monologue --

  • I found the moment where I saw Steven Spielberg.

  • [ Laughter ] Can we -- Can we show...

  • -I have three photos here. -Okay, yeah.

  • -Here's this photo here, doing the monologue.

  • -So I'm doing the monologue. It's going great.

  • Look how happy I am. [ Laughter ]

  • -Yeah, you look handsome. Yeah, you look sharp.

  • -I'm like, "This is going well. I belong here."

  • Let's see --

  • This is the exact moment I notice Steven Spielberg.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • [ Wah-wah! ]

  • This is the exact moment I notice him,

  • and this is a couple seconds later.

  • [ Laughter and applause ]

  • -Oh, my goodness. -Yeah.

  • -So, did you get to meet him at all at the after party or...?

  • -Yeah, so I saw him at the after party,

  • and I just went up to him, and I was like,

  • "You know, you messed up my monologue."

  • [ Laughter ] -No, you did not.

  • -I said, "I noticed you, and I stumbled,"

  • and he laughed really hard.

  • And, you know, you think when you meet your heroes,

  • you're gonna be all chill and cool and stuff?

  • -Yeah. -I was just like,

  • I have a couple questions

  • about "Close Encounters of the Third Kind."

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -He was like, "Anyone get me out of this conversation?

  • [ Laughter ]

  • I want to hear about your obsession with Hugh Grant.

  • Because this is in the movie.

  • Guys, if you haven't seen this movie, you are going to love it.

  • It has so many jokes in there.

  • By the way, that's one of the reasons I loved it so much.

  • Well written, it was so --

  • Performed great but so many jokes.

  • But then there's this thing where you're --

  • You have, like -- You're obsessed with Hugh Grant.

  • In real life, you are. -Yes.

  • -Like, you -- [ Laughter ]

  • In high school, you would never smile in photos,

  • because you heard that Hugh Grant

  • doesn't smile in photos. [ Light laughter ]

  • -Yeah. -Because why?

  • -'Cause he said it makes his face look fat.

  • And I was like, "I don't want my face to look fat."

  • [ Laughter ]

  • "I want to look like Hugh Grant."

  • So I didn't smile in pictures for many years.

  • -Why were you obsessed with Hugh Grant?

  • -Well, 'cause I really loved "Four Weddings and a Funeral."

  • I've watched it -- Why are people laughing?

  • [ Laughter ] It's a great movie.

  • -It is, yeah! -Have you seen it?

  • -Of course I have.

  • -Oh, my God, it's got everything.

  • Four weddings. It's got a funeral.

  • -And a funeral, yeah, yeah.

  • The title -- Don't give away the --

  • No spoilers. [ Laughter ]

  • -It's actually, three weddings, a funeral,

  • and then another wedding. Spoilers.

  • But, I just -- [ Laughter ]

  • -But a total of four weddings.

  • -It's got a total of four weddings

  • and a total of one funeral. -Funeral, okay, good.

  • I'm glad they settled on that title.

  • -There's some receptions and stuff,

  • but I think that counts amongst the wed--

  • I could truly recite the whole movie right now.

  • -You really could. -So what happened was,

  • I watched this at a very impressionable age,

  • and the beginning of the movie, Hugh Grant is --

  • he's the best man at one of the weddings,

  • wedding one, and he does this speech,

  • his best man speech, and it's basically a monologue.

  • It's basically a stand-up piece, right?

  • He's doing jokes.

  • And I remember watching it and being like --

  • That was the first stand-up I fell in love with,

  • and I became a stand-up

  • because of his best-man speech at wedding one.

  • -You're kidding me. -Yeah. And I --

  • When I watch early videos of me doing stand-up,

  • I'm basically doing an impression of Hugh Grant

  • at wedding one of "Four Weddings and a Funeral."

  • And I wanted -- I loved his hair.

  • Do we have a -- Look at --

  • Look at what a great job I did.

  • -Which one?

  • [ Laughter, cheers, applause ]

  • -Look at that! [ Cheers and applause ]

  • -No smile. -No smile.

  • -No smile.

  • -I mean, look -- this part is...

  • -It's perfectly floppy. It is fantastic.

  • -It's perfect. Here there's a little --

  • You know, I went -- I sort of added my own flair.

  • -Yeah. You had your own --

  • You had to have your own flair. I just love this.

  • And I love that you really are obsessed with him,

  • because I don't know. I just think it's great.

  • You actually got to meet Hugh Grant.

  • -Yeah. So, this is what happened.

  • So, Richard Curtis -- -Oh, he's phenomenal.

  • -Yeah, he's amazing. He wrote "Four Weddings."

  • -"Notting Hill," "Love Actually."

  • -Yeah. -He's a genius.

  • -He's a genius.

  • And him and his partner, Emma, had us over.

  • They heard that we were big fans,

  • and they had us over to their house in London.

  • And Emily and I were eating with them, and the doorbell rang.

  • And Emily was like, "Uh-oh."

  • And I was like, "What do you know?"

  • She didn't know, but Hugh Grant walked in.

  • [ Laughter ] And he was very nice.

  • No idea. [ Laughter ]

  • -I just want to note, your voice just went up like three volumes.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • Just saying his name.

  • -Hugh Grant! -Hugh Grant!

  • [ Laughter ] "Come on down!"

  • -Yeah, it's just been, you know, like at "SNL,"

  • it was, "Surprise! Spielberg." -Yeah, exactly.

  • -Surprise, Grant!

  • -You got a surprise Spielberg, yep.

  • -Yeah, I got a surprise Grant, and then, I actually --

  • I got a picture with -- -Here's why I love it.

  • Because... you're not smiling, and he is.

  • And that just... [ Laughter and applause ]

  • -Look at that. -Look at that.

  • -Look at that.

  • See?

  • I got to take that line out. -Isn't that fantastic?

-Welcome. Welcome to the show.
