"people are really, really down," even though he did everything he could to make us smile [ laughter ] after falling off his bike over the weekend, president biden did a brief dance after leaving church to show reporters he was feeling fine though, just for the record, we stopped associating dancing with good health some time ago.

[ laughter ] after last week's televised hearings on the capitol attack, former president trump said on friday that ex-vice president mike pence did not have the courage to act on january sixth and added, "mike was afraid of whatever he was afraid of. um, getting hanged you can't threatened to kill a man and then ask what he's so scared of. that's like jason saying, "what? what did i do? according to a new report, georgia republican senate candidate herschel walker has fathered of three children he has not publicly acknowledged, or as his opponent thinks of it, three more votes [ audience groans [ laughter ] "the new york times" recently published an article about so-called "peecyclers" who recycle their urine to use as fertilizer i don't know i think if that worked, the subway would look like this.

12:43 am
the committee investigating the coup attempt on january sixth continues to reveal new evidence of a coordinated criminal plot by donald trump to overthrow american democracy, trump is responding by suggesting he might pardon the january sixth defendants if he gets reelected in 2024. for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause >> seth: the reason these hearings are important is very simple this wasn't a one-off, and trump hasn't forgotten if he gets the chance, he's going to finish the job. and this is one of the rare times you can say that about trump. he's not exactly a closer. i'm not sure he ever technically finished any of his buildings. i'm pretty sure that instead of putting fire alarms in his condos, he just painted them on. but trump has made it abundantly clear that he hasn't forgotten about the 2020 election and he hasn't let it go if he gets the chance, he will absolutely finish the coup he started on january sixth, as he made clear recently when he dangled the possibility of pardoning defendants in january 6th cases.
12:44 am
>> even while january sixth defendants are having their lives totally destroyed and being treated worse than terrorists and murderers despite most being charged with parading through the capitol, most people should not be treated the way they are being treated. and if i become president someday, if i decide to do it, i will be looking at them very, very seriously for pardons very, very seriously [ cheers and applause they've been treated very unfairly should i decide to do that >> seth: trump is so bad at playing coy. if he had a fan, he'd cut a hole in it so you can still see his mouth. [ laughter ] he says, "if i decide to do it" like he's threatening to streak across the quad after a frat party. "i dare you guys to join me, if, i decide to do it. "donald, you're already naked. "so be it. second, when you say they were charged with parading like that, you make it sound like they were on floats wearing sashes that
12:45 am
said "happy insurrection day." yes, there is such a thing as illegal parading or demonstrating in the capitol, and many people have been charged with that. but that's very different from parading in the sense trump seems to be using it i mean, in new york we have parades like every day it's completely different. every time i get in a cab and say i want to go to midtown, the cabbie says something like, "well, it's luxembourgian independence day, so i got to take you through secaucus. the other day, traffic was stopped along fifth avenue because there was a parade for the national association of trombone players annual trombone appreciation day. it was so annoying [ laughter ] every time someone dropped their ice cream cone, you'd hear this. [ sad tuba ] [ laughter ] in fact, contrary to trump, several members of right-wing groups and militias have been charged with seditious conspiracy in fact, we learned from the committee last week that rioters got within 40 feet of vice president mike pence and were absolutely willing to do physical harm to pence if they had the chance
12:46 am
>> vice president pence and his team ultimately were led to a secure location, where they stayed for the next four and a half hours, barely missing rioters a few feet away. >> approximately 40 feet that's all there was 40 feet between the vice president and the mob. make no mistake about the fact that the vice president's life was in explains that a confidential informant from the proud boys told the fbi the proud boys would have killed mike pence if given a chance >> seth: one thing we're learning from this investigation is that the coup is much more sinister than that pick of the dude jacking the podium. if the rioters had the chance, they would have done the same thing to mike pence. you know, the guy who took the podium probably thought he had pence. "you were supposed to grab the v.p.!" "this has the same charisma! [ laughter ] i feel like as a nation, we haven't all fully appreciated the degree to which the president basically almost got the vice president killed.
12:47 am
that feels like something you only read about in history books like the burr-hamilton duel. of course, if trump and pence ever dueled, only one thing would be certain trump ain't doing the full 10 paces "now, before we do this, mr. president, i would like your assurances that we are agreed on the rules. "absolutely, mike. 10 paces maybe eight, but at least five with that said with that said, mike, i have big paces, so three of mine are probably worth 10 of your tiny paces. everyone seems to have moved on from the threat to pence and that includes pence himself, who also seems to not be holding a grudge against trump for, you know, almost getting him killed. just a week ago, pence bragged about his record in the trump administration, tweeting, "for years, politicians promised to secure the border. under the trump-pence administration we delivered. pence is like that clueless guy you date in college who could not understand that you were dumping him. "we should see other people. "i see other people all the time look, there's one. all right, pick you up at 8:00." "no, dude, we're over. "over the moon about this perfect relationship." "i'm breaking up with you.
12:48 am
"i've been told i break people up with my knock-knock jokes." so it's pretty clear that trump was, at the very least, indifferent as to whether he had put his own vice president in physical danger. and it's also clear trump sicced the mob on pence for not following through on something even trump himself knew was illegal. last week, the committee provided new evidence that trump and his pro-coup lawyer, john eastman, who laid out a detailed plan for how pence could overturn the election, knew the plan was against the law when they tried to get pence to do it in fact, toward the end of trump's presidency, eastman even sent an e-mail to rudy giuliani, casually suggesting that maybe trump should pardon eastman. >> dr. eastman e-mailed rudy giuliani and requested that he be included on a list of potential recipients of a presidential pardon. dr. eastman's e-mail stated, "i've decided that i should be on the pardon list if that is still in the works." >> seth: he's like a guy walking up to the bouncer at a club by himself trying to get in "i've decided i should be on the v.i.p. list. "move.
12:49 am
move out of the way. i'm going to squeeze your head like a grape right this way ladies. [ chuckles ] also, i love how he phrased it like he had just sort of casually thought about a pardon like it was a fun idea and not that it was starting to dawn on him that he was breaking the law and might go to prison he's like a guy on the phone with his insurance agent while you can hear the sound of fire trucks in the background "yeah, hey, a few months ago, you mentioned fire insurance, and i was thinking about it during our fireworks-themed gender reveal party, and maybe i should - yeah, maybe i should get that. and i guess it makes sense that if you're looking for the pardon list, you'd e-mail rudy giuliani. he's definitely the guy who came up with the idea of a pardon list the pardon list is probably just every possible version of his own name written on the back of a steakhouse napkin. [ laughter ] because even rudy, who we tend to think of as a delusional, bumbling, doofus due to, you know [ laughter ] and, yeah, i know we use that picture a lot, but here's the deal you keep laughing at it, we're going to keep using it
12:50 am
even rudy apparently knew that the whole scheme was illegal that's according to a deposition broadcast by the committee last week from former trump white house lawyer eric herschmann. herschmann said he had told eastman that his plan was insane and that later, rudy had agreed with herschmann that the plan was illegal. >> the president's own lead outside counsel, rudy giuliani, also seemed to concede that the vice president did not have the authority to decide the outcome of the election or send it back to the states. here's what white house attorney eric herschmann said about his call with mayor giuliani on the morning of the sixth >> the morning of january 6th, i think he called me out of the blue right? and i was, like, getting dressed. and we had an intellectual discussion about eastman's - i don't know if it's eastman's theory per se, but the v.p.'s role, and he was asking me my view and analysis and then the practical implications of it and when we finished, he said,
12:51 am
"look, i believe that, you know, you're probably right. >> seth: first of all, i doubt it was truly an intellectual discussion if rudy was involved. saying you had an intellectual discussion with rudy giuliani is like saying you played chess with a horse [ laughter ] second, it's incredible to me crazy and bad idea rudy that's how you know your plan is truly [bleep insane this is a guy who, while under multiple investigations, thought it was a good idea to do a video using an abraham lincoln filter. that same guy looked at john eastman's plan and said, "i don't know." the january 6th hearings have revealed a ton of incriminating new details so far, including the fact that the attempted coup was a lot more sinister and a lot more sophisticated than previously known even trump and his cronies knew it was illegal they clearly had criminal intent now trump is basically admitting that he'll do it again if he gets the opportunity he's confessing in advance
12:52 am
it's like he's writing his own version of that book by o.j. called "if i did it," except trump's is called -- >> if i decide to do it.

1:07 am
>> seth: but this is a very high-concept show about people who can have a chip put in their brains that will basically separate their work persona with their home persona >> that's right. it separates your memory so when you're at work, you have no idea who you are in the outside world, and then when you cross the threshold of work to go home, the chip is deactivated so you have no memory of who you are at work or anything you do there, so you're leading two completely separate lives. >> seth: so, it's this very high-concept sort of sci-fi idea it is very stylized in the shooting it's a fantastic cast, but i imagine in the making of it, are you constantly wondering, "are people going to get this?" >> oh, yeah. i mean, the whole time we were making it, we were like, "this is so weird. >> seth: yeah. >> like, no clue whatsoever if anyone -- like, what are people going to do with this? you know, and actually when it started -- like in january when the billboards went up in town,
1:08 am
the billboards were just, like, my head, right and i started freaking out february 18th, when the show was coming out, it was like this locomotive headed towards me and i started freaking out and calling ben stiller, who's the executive producer, directed a bunch of it, with these neurotic nitpicky calls like, "i don't know if the thing in episode three is properly setting up the thing in episode five, what do you think? is this working? he's like, "yeah, no, everything is okay. and it's like, okay, all right and then i would have some other reason eventually after a few of these calls, i was just like, "ben, i think what it comes down to is i just don't want people to think i suck." [ laughter ] and he's like, "okay, all right. i don't think people are going to think you suck. but he'd kind of been through the thing of his head being up on the side of a building before, so he was like, "anytime you're freaking out, call me it's all good. he was like really great with all that >> seth: he did an incredible
1:09 am
job. it's beautifully written you know, again, it's so stylized, and it takes place -- most of it takes place in this very sort of sterile office environment. it seems incredibly claustrophobic was it claustrophobic in real life, as well? >> yeah, the set is strange, 'cause the carpet in our office is bright green, the ceiling is quite low. so, yeah, after nine months of shooting in this environment, we all were starting to go a little crazy. >> seth: and on your computer screens, the sort of menial work you do is just clicking on numbers as they start to, i guess, throb would maybe be -- >> sure? >> seth: that's, like -- that's my kind of go-to word. >> okay. >> seth: but what do you - >> like, when all else fails, just go to "throb" >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> alright just don't do that while texting. >> seth: obviously >> teenagers >> seth: but they ask for my number >> i get it. >> seth: but what are you actually doing on the screen
1:10 am
>> we are actually going around and eliminating numbers, like, exactly like what we're doing. they designed the exact computer program that you see on the show >> seth: because, you know, you mentioned "the office" earlier on that show, people were always doing different things on their computer >> yeah. >> seth: but this was, you actually had to do the number game >> yeah. on "parks & rec" i remember they had internet access on all those computers that people were at in the background, so you could just, like, browse the internet on camera. but on this, we were actually eliminating numbers. like zach cherry, who's in the show, got really good at it. i was not as good. and then like the trackball they designed for the specific computer is ergonomically impossible, so we all started getting this weird new carpal tunnel. [ laughter ] >> seth: you're really giving a ringing endorsement of show business. >> yeah. >> seth: there was a -- this was near the end of the season there was a dance party. here you are [ laughter ]
1:11 am
here are your cast members this was sort of a very, i feel like, if you can say there's an iconic scene in a new show, but this was very much that. what did you know about the scene before you started shooting it? >> well, we knew just what was scripted it ended up taking about two days to shoot that whole scene, and the thing that ben had kept from us and surprised us with on the day was that the fluorescent lights we had been living with for months and months, once the music starts, tramell tillman, who plays milchick, hits a remote control and they turn into disco lights and the entire ceiling just starts -- and we had no idea that was going to happen. so the reaction you see of us kind of marveling at these lights are actual actors that have been trapped in this room for nine months, being dazzled by disco lights. >> seth: you do seem absolutely in awe >> yeah, yeah. >> seth: this is such a technically precise show, i feel like you watch it and it seems
1:12 am
as though the actors have this incredible freedom because you're all so good, but i imagine there is something a little bit more rigid when you have to be in a show where everything is so beautifully framed, so perfectly shot. >> yeah. kind of the second i walked onto the set i thought, oh, okay, i've never really done something like this before this is going to be all about technical precision, but also being able to figure out the acting in and out and around that technical precision, which i had never really done before so i just -- knowing that i trusted ben as much as i do, i just decided to give myself over to the technical needs of the show and to completely lean on him for all of the acting stuff, because i wasn't going to be able to keep an eye on it myself because i had too much to do, i guess. >> seth: yeah. it looks like whatever you guys had to put into it, it paid off. it couldn't have paid off better in the show itself >> oh, thanks. >> seth: it's wonderful. i can't wait for more. thank you so much for being

[ buzzer ] >> ooh, i'm so very sorry. that is incorrect. >> ohh [ laughter ] >> seth: please welcome back to the show james murray, brian quinn, and sal vulcano, everybody. [ cheers and applause ♪ >> seth: gentlemen, welcome back >> thank you it's good to see you >> seth: so, i feel like we need to explain that clip a little bit. >> yes >> seth: obviously, you come up with pranks with extreme punishments, and you were sitting there with a fellow staten islander, colin jost, and it's a spelling bee. >> yeah, what happened is was, apparently -- 'cause now we're having guests on "impractical jokers," and we're trying to
1:20 am
work out the punishments with them, how to connect it to their lives, a little fancy. colin is a great speller, won a spelling bee, so he was like, "here's the idea we'll do a spelling bee. and every time you get the word wrong, an attack dog will run out and viciously attack you and grab you to the ground." and i was like, "yeah, sounds great, sounds great. >> seth: now, you were okay. i should note an extreme amount of padding here. [ laughter ] >> i look like monty python. >> no, that was just covid weight [ laughter ] >> seth: hey, we all had a different experience did you still, though, have some bruising from the dog? >> yeah. what happens is, those suits, the dogs bite and you feel every tooth touching it just stops it from breaking through. so when i took the suit off, i had dog bite marks all - everywhere the dog bites me and it drew me back to him screaming "bite him in his nuts! bite him in the nuts!" he's screaming >> the nuts would have been the prime target [ laughter ] >> seth: i like that those dogs

are intensely trained, but also, you still you can point them to an area in the moment. so, guys, ten years. that's such an accomplishment. ten seasons of any show. [ cheers and applause >> thank you >> seth: but you have all really put yourself through it. in order to succeed, you have had to fail together and go through some real ringers. is it amazing when you look back do you think, "i can't believe it's been going on this long"? >> oh, my god, yeah. yeah we would never have believed we've been on the year ten years. prior to this, i hadn't done anything for more than just a few months [ laughter ] >> seth: and now that it's an institution, do people come up and pitch you ideas all the time >> yeah. >> seth: usable? >> no. [ laughter ] >> everyone from our -- you know, my aunts to people on the street, and they'll just go, "oh, you know when you do your little skits?" they're like, "you should do - fly the plane and then you tell them, 'hey, everybody, it's a joke.' yeah, i don't think -- not only do you not understand the way
1:22 am
the show works, i don't really think you understand how aviation works >> it's either that or like, "prank me, prank me! what do you -- what? it's so bizarre, yeah. >> the weirdest for me was i went to giants stadium to see a game halftime, i go to use the men's room and i'm squeezed shoulder to shoulder with this dude. and he leans over and whispers in my ear. he goes, "mur, am i on the show right now? i was like, "no, dude, i'm peeing in the bathroom." [ laughter ] >> seth: alright so, sal, you were on "kelly and ryan," but it was chris pratt. chris pratt was filling in for ryan this is an example of -- obviously, within the body of your show, people know what to expect, but sometimes outside your environs, you can find that people maybe don't know what to expect from you. >> yeah. look, not every television appearance goes as well as this one is going right now [ laughter ] we're on the morning show, we get there at like 7:00, and i'm like, "i want to do something different," and you know, you're loopy, right so i have this idea. right before that, chris pratt, they gave away a trip on the air.
1:23 am
but the woman got it wrong and he's like, "i'll give it to her anyway." then they told him on air, "you can't do that, it's illegal. so he's like, "i'll pay for the trip 5,800 bucks? i'll pay for it. the place goes nuts. and then kelly says, "i'll split it," and they go nuts. and he was promoting "the magnificent seven," the remake of the famous western. so they were on the show the next guest is denzel washington, who's on the show with them denzel comes out, first thing he says is, "i heard you guys are going to split that trip i'm going in three ways with you, we're all buying the trip for the lady," and the place goes nuts. so i'm like, "all right, i have an idea. [ laughter ] >> he didn't run it by any of us >> i got a hanes t-shirt and a black magic marker and i wrote "magnificent seven" on it 'cause i was going to say they obviously needed help promoting the thing, denzel and chris pratt. i misspelled it 'cause i thought that would even be another layer of funny and then when i came out, the first thing i said when we sat down, before anyone said anything, i said, "before we start, i want to make an announcement i am not going four ways on the trip with the woman. [ laughter ] and the audience, they just laughed more
1:24 am
the audience took me completely serious. and on air, kelly goes, "no, it's okay, we're going to get the trip you don't have to do that. and they didn't know i was joking, and then nobody ever brought up the shirt [ laughter ] >> seth: that is not a good look >> i just think they think i have - >> you looked great. he looked great. >> they think i have big issues. >> yeah. >> seth: what about your wedding, mur did you have issues with your wedding? >> speaking of issues, yes >> well, this is a self -- you brought this on yourself >> seth: oh, you did it to yourself >> i did it to myself, but it was from a genuine place i recently got married >> seth: congratulations >> thank you, thank you. [ cheers and applause and to surprise my wife and to surprise all of her friends and family -- my wife, melissa, is a huge fan of smash mouth. >> seth: sure. >> or so i thought >> yeah, it's not true turns out, she just liked "shrek." >> seth: oh, no. >> that was it >> seth: yeah, because "all star" is on that, right >> yeah. >> so, i secretly hired smash mouth to play my wedding at the end, right?
1:25 am
the problem was they enjoyed the wedding a little bit too much. >> seth: oh, no! >> okay, so by the time it came for them to play, they were hammered, and my wedding ended with smash mouth giving my mother the middle finger, dropping the mic, and leaving. >> seth: so, you did it to yourself, though >> i did it to myself. as a comedian, i thought it was the best wedding ever. [ laughter ] i started frantically texting q. he couldn't make the wedding >> i could have made it. [ laughter ] >> i start frantically texting him, saying, "this is a disaster, it's out of control, thank god you're not here. >> i was simultaneously texting him, "oh, my god, best wedding ever you're missing this. smash mouth is going bananas." >> the problem is when you hire smash mouth, you get smash mouth. >> seth: that's what they say. do you have any exciting punishments we can look forward to this season >> oh, man >> i mean, if you don't mind indulging me for a moment.
1:26 am
[ laughter ] we had method man as the host of the episode. >> seth: fantastic >> in the punishment, him and i were on a television panel and i was speaking in front of a room of like 50, 60 people as a television expert. but right before i went onto the panel, the guys had me insert an adult apparatus into my posterior section. >> we put a dildo in his ass [ laughter ] >> and they controlled it on an ipad and the device had four settings -- hurricane, tsunami, earthquake, and smooth jazz. [ laughter ] i was freaking leaping i was leaping. >> smooth jazz was never played that night [ laughter ] >> seth: can i say something i feel like that would be the most jarring, smooth jazz. [ laughter ] like, i don't like that. >> just really riffing up there. >> seth: but wait, sal, how did you end up -- you ended up as the face of an erectile dysfunction pill on a porn site. >> i don't know. i just started getting text messaged that i was -- yeah, i
1:27 am
guess they took a freeze frame from the show of when i had a lab coat on. i was playing an optometrist on the show apparently that got co-opted and i was now the face of an erectile dysfunction i got no income. i got no free pills. i got nothing. >> seth: at the very least, you should get a free pill or two. >> yeah, one free pill give me one free erection off the thing. >> seth: we've mentioned some staten island royalty, which you guys are, as well. were you upset when you heard that jost and pete davidson bought the staten island ferry >> we felt we should have been involved >> seth: yeah. >> yeah, we felt like there was a staten island contingent we should've been involved >> he was actually angry, if i'm being honest >> no, i texted q and casey jost, colin's brother who directs our show >> seth: wonderful director of your show, yes >> yes so i texted them, "do you think we should buy this ferry i don't know the monetary implications of it, but let's seriously check it out." and then casey forwarded the article to his brother the next day, and then the following day, 48 hours later, they had purchased the ferry. >> seth: oh! so you were trying to buy it
1:28 am
>> no. i'm so glad that -- thank god, because that's a money pit i wish you guys well i will be a customer, but thank god i didn't get in on that investment >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] i think that is probably a very good outcome this is -- it's very nice to know that you guys are very the same in real life as you are on the show you recently had what could fully be an "impractical jokers" episode with a dinner bill >> oh, yeah. >> so, we go out to dinner a few weeks ago and sal has to use the restroom at the end of the meal. the bill comes so, while sal was in the bathroom, q and i split. we took off, left sal stuck with the bill >> seth: how fast -- how fast did you decide it? is it very much in the moment, like "we should just go" and both of you agree immediately? >> it's kind of like falling in love we locked eyes and just knew, and just knew. yeah, we ran out as fast as we can. >> i don't know what i was thinking going to the bathroom at the end of the meal it was my fault.
1:29 am
i asked for it >> how much was the bill >> it was tough because, you know, it was over 600 bucks. >> seth: oh, my god! >> yeah. >> and he's on tv, so he's got to tip really well [ laughter ] >> seth: and there's no denzel to chip in, no chris pratt [ laughter ] >> believe me, before i put my credit card down, i searched feverishly for denzel.
