for watching. >> lou: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live!" with guest host david alan grier. tonight -- jamie foxx, abbi jacobson, and music from the shins. with cleto and the cletones. and now david alan grier. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> david: what's up, what's up, what's up? whoo! welcome to "jimmy kimmel live!" i'm your guest host, david alan grier. [ cheers and applause ]
11:36 pm
i'm what you call a "friend of the show." i've done this show over 36 times. [ cheers and applause ] but tonight marks my first appearance as a tony award winner. [ cheers and applause ] it only took me 41 short years to get that award. [ laughter ] and now here i am hosting "kimmel" in a theater that shares a parking lot with a hooters. [ laughter ] guillermo, how many awards has jimmy won? >> guillermo: like three or four. [ laughter ] >> david: shut up. [ laughter ] what a show-off. as a beloved tony award-winning actor, people are always clamoring for information about me. so i've decided tonight i'm going to answer three of the most frequently asked questions about me on google.
11:37 pm
by the way, these are real questions, okay? no fake news here. anyways. first up -- what is david alan grier doing now? answering your dumb-ass questions. next? [ laughter ] okay, this one isn't even about me. how old is jamie foxx? [ laughter ] that depends. in regular years? 54. in black years? 9 1/2. [ laughter and applause ] and this is the number one question most asked about me on google. did david alan grier pass away? [ laughter ] yes, he was smothered under the weight of yo mama. okay, we good now? [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] now, there's crazy stuff happening everywhere, especially down in the sunshine state where it's time for tonight's edition of "this week in florida."
11:38 pm
>> the county sheriff's office said a civilian spotted brandan wright, 34, crossing the fairground before 10:00 a.m. as he carried a machete and picked palmetto berries while completely naked. thankfully only the handle hit the victim, it did not injure him. deputies say wright ran into brush and got into a white dodge challenger. he was later spotted, still naked, outside a gas station, yelling at drivers, doing push-ups, and behaving erratically. [ cheers and applause ] >> david: well, at least he's working out. as they say, self-care is the best care. [ laughter ] got to get some vitamin "d" on that "d." [ laughter ] speaking of insane floridians, donald trump is having a tough week. i will hold for your applause. [ cheers and applause ] trump sat for a deposition with
11:39 pm
the new york state attorney general today and repeatedly pled the fifth for over four hours. which is interesting, because just a few years ago, this is what he said about people who do that kind of thing. >> so there are five people taking the fifth amendment. like you see on the mob, right? you see the mob takes the fifth. if you're innocent, why are you taking the fifth amendment? >> david: i don't know, you tell us, you guilty bitch. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] i got to be honest, i didn't even know what this deposition was about. at this point, the hardest thing is figuring out which crime trump is being investigated for. it's like, hold on. is this the tax fraud thing, or the insurrection thing, or the voter fraud thing, or the paying off the pornstar thing, or the capitol police thing, or one of the other two capitol police
11:40 pm
things, or the mishandling of classified documents thing, or the thing where you used the oval office to sell beans? [ laughter and applause ] where's the house committee on that one? meanwhile, down at mar-a-lago, the maga faithful have assembled to show their support. >> you're just across the intercoastal from the president's -- oh, i see a protester behind you too? >> yeah, about a dozen that are here. a lot of them slept in their cars. >> david: a dozen trump supporters? or as we say in the theater "12 angry men." [ laughter ] or women. or anyone who identifies as a monster. and if you're wondering what type of person would go to donald trump's house to defend his honor, here you go. >> you don't think there was a real reason to come here, it's just a show? >> no, i know there's no real reason. i know it in my heart.
11:41 pm
i know it in my spirit. he has never lied about anything. [ laughter ] >> david: i know a trump university graduate when i see one. [ laughter and applause ] you know i'm having a lot of fun doing this late night monologue, but i am a classically trained tony award-winning actor. [ laughter and applause ] from the theater. and in the theater, a monologue is something important. it's a speech by one character baring their soul, not a bunch of cobbled-together jokes about the president's mushroom-shaped penis. [ laughter ] with that in mind, i thought i'd class up this dump by talking about one of the biggest news stories of the day the only way i know how -- through monologue. a real theatrical monologue. [ cheers and applause ]
11:42 pm
it's time for "dagsterpiece theater." we take you now to palm beach florida where mar-a-lago's most important doorman stands guard. >> halt! you federal agents have no right to enter this hallowed homestead! this is the residence of one donald jehosephat trump. [ laughter ] former president of these united states. and he told me not to let any woman enter these grounds unless they're at least a 7. [ laughter ] so you and your fellow troglodytes better vacate the premises, posthaste! you cannot see the great trump. no one's seen him! if you looked upon him, you'd go blind! your teeth would fall out of your head! your bowels will evacuate themselves! classified documents? piffle! i care not! this is a man -- nay, a legend, whose touch can heal the sick,
11:43 pm
whose voice can calm the insane, whose flaxen mane would make godless heathens believe in miracles! so you can huff and puff all you want, but i will not sell out the great leviathan who taught me that in this country anyone can be president. even if you're dumb as a mule. and racist as a racist mule. [ laughter ] oh, what's that? you've got a warrant from a federal judge? well, that's a horse of a different color! why didn't ya say so! come on in! and -- scene. [ cheers and applause ] guys in the booth, can i get a copy of that monologue for my reel, please? thank you.

[ cheers and applause ] which was well established before he got involved. after three intense years of my mentoring and guidance and tutelage, he went on to become an oscar, bafta, golden globe, and grammy winner. but no tony!
