(synthetic airy music) – Dwight has a sister? – Yeah – Oh! – Scotty beamed his guts into space! – No way! – [Man] I spiked the punchbowl at the adult table

– There's only one punchbowl (rock music) – Eh, kids grow up so fast these days Sometimes I don't wanna be on a show 'cause I enjoy it and I don't wanna get taken out of it Like me on Game of Thrones would not have been great It would be like, that's weird that he's on Game of Thrones

I mean, maybe I could have made the last season better, but (laughs) I do look like I'm loosely related to Peter Dinklage though I do (man screams) Yeah we're hungry! – Jackson, Jackson! – [Crowd] Jackson! – My very first job ever that got me my SAG card, was I had one line on the Gilmore Girls, but that was like a fluke I just could not get an audition no matter how many commercials I booked It didn't matter

And I met a lady who said she knew a manager who was looking for people I met him, and he was like, "you know what? "I've seen your commercials, "I've looked at some stuff, let's just, I'll send you "on a couple auditions, we'll see how it goes" First audition he sent me out on was Breaking Bad Yo forreal, this is all you? – All me – Vince cast me off tape and I flew out to the desert

Albuquerque, apparently, they were shooting a show there on this new network called AMC with the guy from Malcolm in the Middle and the show is about meth Like, nobody knew anything and then I shot my episode, and I still didn't understand it (laughs) and Aaron Paul was living there and he was like, "Hey, come over" I went over to his place and we watched the pilot together, and I was like, "oh my god" This was way before it was released

I was, "this is like an independent movie" Like, I had no, I'd never seen TV like that Then nobody watched it for three years, and it almost got canceled over, and over, and over again

Then it got on Netflix and became this phenomenon I ever tell you about my Star Trek script? – Star Trek script? – Yeah, I gotta write it down is all The Enterprise is five parsecs out of Rigle Twelve Nothing's going on, Neutral Zone is quiet, the crew is bored So they put on a pie eating contest

Lot of people love the Star Trek scene That scene's directed by Bryan Cranston Which is funny enough In that scene, I'm wearing

these gloves here, we got them right here That I wear still cause I came to Chicago for a Bear's game, and these are the gloves that I'm wearing in that scene

And this is a Chicago Bear's reference that nobody knows about in Breaking Bad Bryan Cranston is more intimidating than he is inspiring, to be honest I remember one day he was making fun of me We were at craft service and he's just, he likes to make fun of me, cause you know, he knows I'm a comedian and I can handle it, and he's also kind of a jerk I'm just kidding

(laughs) No, but he's making fun of me and then he walked on to camera like thirty seconds later, and was incredible Like I was watching on the monitor I was like, he went from there to Walter White to like, crying, and like angry, and all that In thirty seconds I was like, I can't do that

I can't do that So, I don't know if it's inspiring as it was soul crushing (laughs) ♪ Oh that's the way ♪ ♪ These things go ♪ – [Narrator] You ready? – Yeah (daunting music) – It's like going to like a high school reunion, you know? If your high school was like really cool The premiere was insane, the premiere

They didn't tell us anything We were just getting delivered there in a car by yourself, and I'm not very cool, so, you get delivered and you're like, you know, you're out on the street You're like, "oh where do I go?", and that's what usually is We got delivered there and the car opened up, we were projected on a huge video screen and there was nine grand stands filled with fans cheering like it was the Oscars I nearly had a panic attack, it was insane

And then it took us two hours to walk through Just walk the red carpet and talk to all the news outlets and everything It was the most insane thing I've ever done (car crashes) Morning – Morning

– I think I might need some better brakes – You need our new Midas Secure Stop– – I did commercials before, like, 2000 to 2004, and then like 2007 to 2010, so like, yeah I did about forty commercials overall And I've done a lot of, I did a lot of, it's not an easy game It's worse now, now it's like, not sustainable because of the internet and everything, but yeah I did a lot of commercials I did beer commercials, Midas commercial

I did an insurance commercial I did a Sync commercial once, Wrigley's Gum commercial Everything I had done, some point Yup, cellphones (upbeat music) ♪ Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah ♪ ♪ Here we go ♪ ♪ It's intermission, so don't spoil it ♪ ♪ Smoke a cigarette and use the toilet ♪ When I started Boom, 2004 I was 22

The only person that was younger than me to get that job was Jordan Peele Was 21 when he started And I came in right at when he was finishing Yeah, and there was, it was just I knew that all these guys from SNL and MadTV at that time, writers on Daily Show and Correspondence, and all these like comedy gods, a bunch of them had done Boom Chicago In the late nineties, early 2000's

So, I auditioned, and I was like in an unofficial comedy college where you're paid to do improve and sketch Like Second City kinda style show all over Europe I did it for 3 years And that's how I lost my voice I kept doing that show over, and over, and over again, and I just kept losing my voice and it stuck this way

– And I think the wrong person just left (slow gentle music) – Perfect, that's a wrap (gentle upbeat music) – That guy was your dad? – The Russo Brothers were running the show and they directed

me in a Domino's commercial, and the Russo Brothers called me and they're like, "Hey, do you wanna come do just like "a day thing on Community?" and I was like, "Yeah, sure" And I came and did it And then they would just call me every once in a while, like, "Hey, do you just wanna come for the day?", and I was like, "Yeah

" It wasn't like I got cast, it was just them asking, like, if I wanted to come sit in for the day, and sometimes I could, sometimes I couldn't So, I ended up doing like two, three? Three times? – Hey, where am I anyway? – Why this is the famed Kingdom of Huge, of course You fell through that crack in my ceiling, and landed in a normal sized pie – Cartoons are the best job in the world V

O is the best job in the world You work maybe two hours a week especially kids shows, you just get to have fun and do the dumbest version of everything It's the height of comedy for me

People are like trying to do subtle, cool comedy, I'm like, no, I want some Rodney Dangerfield Hit somebody in the balls You know what I mean? That makes me laugh You were the aunt to my cousins Most of your life you were 5'4", at the end you were 5'1"

– I actually auditioned for Thomas' part many, many times, and then they ended up giving it to Thomas last minute As the story goes But then they added a character on the show They added a whole new character just for me Then they brought me into a bunch of episodes of The Office which was cool, but yeah, we shot the spin-off as an episode of The Office

And it didn't quite work I had so much fun It was insane, I was on the finale of The Office and the finale of Breaking Bad within like, a month I got to go to so many cool parties (laughs) Even being in the finale of The Office I kept being like, "Why am I here? "Why do you guys have me here?" I mean, I'm not gonna leave, but this is great

He was not only a good pitcher, but he was a good batter He would hit home-runs It went over and over It's like, I throw this (beep) ninety miles an hour In the '80s, the year 1980s, not in the '80s of speed ball

Oh Jesus, I gotta start that again Yeah, Jim Abott was just a fascination I had Derek and I had talked 'cause I knew him through UCB stuff and he was like, I knew when he was making the Funny or Die version of Drunk History which was just a couple sketches Then he started making the show and I was like, "Hey man, I'll drink on the show, please, I wanna do it" Then he calls you and you just kind of, both kind of decide on the story together, and then you kind of come up with your own telling

Then they come to your house and you drink a lot, and just tell the story over, and over, and over for like five hours But they make you take a physical They have a nurse on set that gives you electrolyte shots every 30 minutes, but you are aggressively drunk I drank three full bottles of wine by myself And apparently, Jeremy, the director said that I was naked towards the end of it

Like, 'cause I got hot or something I started taking off all my clothes I was trying to help them move equipment And they were like, "No, you don't have to help us" Like, "No I got

" 'Cause they were in my house "I gotta help you" "I'll lift the camera" They're like, "Don't lift the camera" (laughs) "You drunk idiot

" And then I, like, waving like just in my underwear Thought I was dead, I'm not dead, I'm alive! (crowd laughs) You been crying? God, I'm so touched – Yeah, right here (karate chops) – Oh! (crowd laughs) – (chuckles) I got a call and they were like, "Do you wanna go do a movie in Oklahoma for a month?" And I was like, "Yeah, I'd like to get out of LA

" Ryan Hansen from Party Down and a bunch of other stuff I knew he was doing it, and I knew that we had mutual friends and I thought he was a funny guy (mumbles) from what I heard, I was the reason he did it as well So, we went and did it In the movie, there's a lot of football players in it Actually, there's a bunch of guys who used to play at Oklahoma State University

University of Oklahoma 'cause we shot in Oklahoma They were hitting us really hard, and couple of guys had to be like, "Hey man, it's a movie, you can't hit me like that "I'm gonna die, you have to stop, that really hurt" But it was fun – [Narrator] If Brexit's taught us anything it's that Britain is a proud country

Home to respected politicians – From Nigel Farage, how thoughtful – [Narrator] And has a relaxed attitude to immigration – Oh c'mon man – I directed a whole season of a T

V show in England called Borderline It's on Netflix Directed the whole first season I helped create the show and cast it

One of my best friends growing up, his name's Mike OT, and his partner, my now partner Chris Gau, all three of us kind of made this show together It was similar to the office, but about border agents in the UK I didn't act in it I just directed it, helped write and produce, and we made this show for no money and no time

I'm really proud of it, I think it's really good (gritty rock music) I appreciate you giving us the best show of the 2010's, but also, of course we are Have you seen the show? C'mon It's amazing! Take that, Game of Thrones (laughs) I think Breaking Bad is the best show of the decade because it got better every single episode

There was never a dip And every other show I've seen dips That one, every episode gets better, and better, and better, and better (sustained musical note)
