Watch the special expanded series finale online now.
In this backstage show I talk with the hilarious Wanda Sykes about earning bonus points with her nanny, battling a stomach flu and celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in Boston. Also, Simon Pegg talks about his first time on the show and points out that Jay is wearing his “mufti.” And Latin superstar Juanes translates his song and tells us why there’s a sexual double meaning.
In this backstage show I talk with Glee’s Jane Lynch about her pre-show “hoedown,” her Irish heritage and her plans for St. Patrick’s Day. We also discuss something else that’s “green.” And MSNBC’s Chris Matthews discusses his Irish heritage and shares an St. Patrick’s tale involving President Ronald Regan and an amazing coincidence.
Attention comedy fans: this backstage video is for you! I was lucky enough to track down top-notch comedian Jimmy Brogan backstage during Jerry Seinfeld’s appearance. Not only is he a good friend of both Jay’s and Jerry’s, but he’s also a veteran stand-up comedian who was our head monologue writer for 9 years. He helped me rope in Jerry so we could discuss his successful appearance. And see what happens when Jay stops in and these three comedy kings discuss the craft of stand-up.
In this backstage show I talk with 11-year-old actress Baillee Madison. Critics say she stole the show in the new film, “Just Go With It” and she steals the show backstage too! Watch as I get more info about her battle with an octopus (we see the scar up close!) and her dog Maddy. And see what she thought about being on the show with her brother’s favorite, Mr. Jerry Seinfeld.
In this backstage show I talk with Simon Cowell about his new show “X-Factor" and where he will hold auditions. Also, champion NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon gives us the backstage scoop on what happened when he tried to beat Jay in a “Burnout Competition” (see the footage!). And musician Travis Barker talks about collaborating with Cypress Hill (and Mix Master Mike) and recalls a time when Jay and his mechanics saved the day.
In this backstage show I talk with Matt Damon about his upcoming first “man kiss” and his reaction to Betty White. And Betty White herself makes a grand entrance not only on the show, but in our backstage show too! See what she has to say about the singers, Matt Damon and the upcoming season of “Hot In Cleveland.”
In this backstage video I talk with Ross Mathews about what it was like to be at the Elton John Oscar party. Ross interviewed Jamie Foxx, Jane Lynch, Heidi Klum and got a bunch of stuff for a gift bag for Jay. Jamie Foxx gave Ross his sunglasses to give Jay and Jay gave Jamie's sunglasses to an audience member - see why it is so great to be in the audience? You won't believe what Heidi took off and threw in the bag.
In this backstage show I talk with Christina Applegate about the gift she got from Jay and working with the Farrelly brothers on “Hall Pass.” Also, “Must Love Cats” host John Fulton sings an improvisational tribute to my childhood cat Grover. And Michael Franti talks about performing barefoot on our show (and he even lets his hair out literally!)
