Trudeau Responds to Perry’s Kimmel Interview

Late Night television is normally reserved for light-hearted banter between a comedian and their guests. In most cases, guests on the show are actors or musicians that are promoting upcoming shows or events. While commentary on these shows is normally light-hearted, one recent late night show has attracted the interest of a prominent international politician (http://www.cnn.com/2017/04/02/entertainment/trudeau-matthew-perry-rematch/).

 

During a recent interview on the Jimmy Kimmel show, actor Matthew Perry was questioned about his life and childhood. During the interview Perry stated that he know Justin Trudeau as a child. At the time, Trudeau’s father was the Prime Minister of Canada and Perry’s mother worked for him. Perry went on to state that when he was a child, he and a friend were jealous of Trudeau and beat him up because of it. They stated that the jealousy came from the fact that Trudeau was better at a sport than they were.

 

Since then, Justin Trudeau has climbed the ranks of the Canadian political system. He has also become the Prime Minister of Canada, following in his father’s footsteps. Not surprisingly, the story told by Perry went viral and was reported to Trudeau. While most people thought that the story was a joke or fabricated, Trudeau has confirmed the events. What surprised people even more is that Trudeau has stated that he would like to have the opportunity to fight Perry again.

 

Trudeau stated in a Tweet that he has thought about the interview a lot over the past few weeks and would now like to have a rematch against Perry. He further stated that he is likely not the only person that would want to hit Chandler. This was a reference to Matthew Perry’s most popular role as Chandler Bing on Friends. At this point it is not fully known whether this tweet was a joke, or if he would like to actually pursue another fight. Furthermore, it was pointed out that the tweet made by the Prime Minister was done on April 1. Therefore, there is a good chance that it was done as a joke to respond to the interview.

 

Jimmy Kimmel And Former President George W. Bush “Drawn” To Each Other

It might not have developed into a true bromance, but Jimmy Kimmel and former President George W. Bush had a ball on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” especially when the pair decided to sketch each other.

Bush was the late night TV host’s recent guest, and he was there to push his new book “Portrait of Courage.” The book is packed with portraits and stories of US veterans, and all proceeds from the book go to benefit veterans.

The former president appeared to have a wonderful sense of humor and agreed to sketch Jimmy Kimmel, and Jimmy Kimmel would sketch Bush. Both gentlemen did a great job, and you can see their artwork here on YouTube.

The visit was an engaging one and touched upon a variety of topics, including comics making fun of presidents. It’s no secret that President Donald Trump is bothered by Alec Baldwin’s hilarious impersonation of him on SNL. In fact, Trump cannot stand Baldwin and told him the impersonation is lousy.

Bush found the impersonations of himself while in office hilarious and told Kimmel he wasn’t bothered by any of the lampooning.

“Not at all,” Bush quipped, saying that “the best humor is when you make fun of yourself.”

“Tell that to the president. He doesn’t think so,” Kimmel said, of overly-sensitive Trump.

Bush even had a favorite comedian who mimicked him during the 2006 White House Correspondents Dinner, playing his alter ego. Bush said he thought the guy who played him best was Steve Bridges. “He’s dead,” Bush said.

Kimmel joked, hoping that the former president didn’t have anything to do with Bridges’ passing.

The former president told Kimmel that he was never an artist while growing up and had no interest in the pursuit, until after he left office.

George W. Bush Cracks Up Kimmel Crowd

Lately, it seems as if the darling of the talk show circuit is an unexpected one. Former President George W. Bush, who recently released a book of his paintings, has been taking to the late night shows to promote his book. Since the proceeds benefit veterans, it seems as if this is a win-win for everyone involved. The interview got off to a raucous start when Kimmel asked a question about the man that former Vice President Dick Cheney had accidentally shot while hunting. Bush joked that it had been a particularly unfortunate incident, since the man had been one of the greatest trial lawyers in Texas.

On a recent appearance with Jimmy Kimmel, Bush made light of his tendency to mix up words during his presidency, pointing out some of his most famous faux pas, such as “strategery” and “misunderestimate”. Kimmel asked Bush if he ever felt offended by some of the impressions of him, and Bush made it very clear that he did not take any of it personally. Also on the discussion agenda was the number of people at Bush’s inauguration. Although the two danced around comparisons to current White House occupant Donald Trump, it definitely seemed as if Trump’s short temper was the elephant in the room.

One of the most touching moments of the evening was when Bush pointed out the veterans in the audience that he had painted, one of whom was with his mother. Talking about his experience as a painter, Bush mentioned that he had initially become interested in the art form after reading an essay that Winston Churchill had written about painting. All in all, this was a very fun and enlightening interview.

The Real Reason Matthew McConaughey Doesn’t Answer to “Matt”

On a recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the hilarious late night host interviewed Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Matthew McConaughey. McConaughey came on the show to promote his newest film, Gold. In the movie, McConaughey plays a businessman down on his luck who teams up with a geologist and discovers a huge gold deposit in the jungles of Indonesia. The film is based on the true story of the Bre-X mining scandal that occurred in 1993.

 

In true Jimmy Kimmel style, though, the host had a more random and interesting question to ask the actor. Most people who are named Matthew go by the nickname Matt, so Kimmel asked McConaughey if he ever answers to that name. McConaughey said he does not and the reason why reaches all the way back to his childhood. When McConaughey was a kid, he was playing at school with a new friend who addressed him as “Matt” and asked if he wanted to play on the monkey bars. McConaughey agreed when suddenly he was grabbed by the shoulders. His mother, who was also his kindergarten teacher, scolded him for answering to the nickname. She said “Don’t you ever answer to Matt again. I named you Matthew from the Bible.” He listened to his mother and has gone by his full name ever since.

 

Jimmy Kimmel Live! Going Bananas Over President Trump And The Hatchimals

You could say, that late night TV host Jimmy Kimmel is knocking his shows out of the ballpark this week. He’s on fire, and this time zeroing in on the hot Christmas toy, the Hatchimal and of course, the country’s new President Donald Trump.

 

There is actually a class action-lawsuit against the Hatchimals maker, because some parents claim these toys are not hatching as advertised. The $80 Hatchimal is the fuzzy interactive toy that hatches out of an egg. Apparently, angry moms and dads believe an unhatched Hatchimal is terrible for a young child, causing frustration, tears and disappointment.

 

Parents claim their kids followed the instructions included in the packaging in attempts to hatch the toy but to no avail. The creatures remain in their eggs, unhatched.

 

Jimmy Kimmel poked fun at the toy, creating a spoof, The Disappointamals. Watch the hilarious sketch here on YouTube.

 

Jimmy Kimmel also nailed President Trump in this too funny spoof trailer, as seen here on YouTube. The trailer has fun with the number one movie in America, The Split. The flick is about a kidnapper with multiple personalities. Except in Jimmy Kimmel’s Split 2, a sequel to the movie, he features President Trump in the lead role.

 

In the real movie thriller, The Split, actor James McAvoy plays the role of a man with 23 personalities. In Jimmy Kimmel’s trailer, Trump also has 23 personalities. The funny bit is less than 2 minutes long but knee-slapping and a must-see.

Kimmel’s Fred And Barney Cartoon of Trump/Bush Locker Room Convo Still Funny

If you’re too young to even remember the beloved American cartoon “The Flintstones,” that’s really alright. The history is not important; all you have to do is watch the new version.

 

Late night television host Jimmy Kimmel put together one of his hilarious, classic Kimmel Kartoons, featuring Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and entertainment personality Billy Bush. The spot is extremely funny and more so every time you re-watch it.

 

The Washington Post had recently released a behind-the-scenes video of the two men having a lewd conversation off-mic on the Access Hollywood bus in 2005. Trump had told Bush on tape that he had tried to have sex with the show’s married host Nancy O’Dell. He took her furniture shopping and tried to unsuccessfully make the moves on O’Dell. Trump also told Bush that when you’re famous and Donald Trump, you can grab women by their ladies’ parts. Billy Bush couldn’t control his laughter.

 

Jimmy Kimmel created his own version, taking the audio from what Trump told Bush on the Access Hollywood bus. Kimmel and crew then cleverly paired it with video from the Flintstones. It’s priceless, with Trump as Fred Flintstone and Billy Bush as Barney Rubble in the town of Bedrock.

 

The 30-second bit keeps growing in popularity. It’s now on YouTube, where almost 129,000 viewers have tuned in and can’t stop laughing.

 

Donald Trump has not made a comment about the Kimmel Kartoon and Billy Bush just lost his job at the Today Show.

 

 

 

Amy Adams Once Worked Selling Licorice

These days, Amy Adams is best known for her five Golden Globe nominations and versatile acting resume that includes a fairytale ending as a princess in ‘Enchanted.’ Before any of that happened though, she was just a kid trying to make some extra spending money. As she explained to Jimmy Kimmel in a recent interview, her very first job included selling licorice to rodeo attendees in Ogden, Utah.

She recounted the story to Kimmel in a post-Golden-Globes visit to his late night talk show. Adams, from a family of seven children, frequently spent summers and holidays with her grandparents in Utah. With seven kids, she explained, her parents didn’t typically give out an allowance as money was tight, and the kids expected to be spoiled a little more visiting their grandparents.

Her grandparents decided to be a little more practical than the kids expected when they went to stay with the grandparents for the summer, telling them, “If you want anything, you’re going to have to earn it.” After doing chores in exchange for making money, her older brother decided to check out the local classifieds, and landed himself a job selling burgers at the rodeo. He was the one to get Adams a job as well, even though she was only 12 at the time.

Adams credits her brother for the money-making scheme that allowed her to save up and buy all of her own clothes when it came time to go back to school. She added that not only did her brother promise to sell more burgers than the rodeo had ever sold before, but he did it, and he even got a share of the profits. He also convinced their grandparents to pay them the standard minimum wage for chores and presented them with an invoice at the end of the summer. It sounds like he had the right head for business!

The 2017 Oscars Will Be Hosted by Jimmy Kimmel

Jimmy Kimmel will be taking a short break from his popular late night show to make fun of Hollywood’s elite. It has been recently confirmed that Kimmel will be the host of the 2017 Academy Awards. He is no stranger to hosting large awards shows. Kimmel hosted the primetime Emmy awards earlier in 2016. His performance on that show was widely praised by critics and people in the entertainment industry. It is not much of a surprise that Kimmel was tapped to host the Oscars. This is because his show and the Oscars are both on ABC. Kimmel has hosted a special show after the Oscars for many years on ABC.

 

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences are notorious for not wanting anything offensive or controversial to happen at their ceremony. This is why it was a surprise when Chris Rock was announced as the host of the 2016 Oscars. However, Rock’s performance was clearly not the same as some of his previous appearances hosing awards shows for MTV. It was clear that the Academy told Rock to tread very carefully. This is thought to be the reason why the Academy has never asked Ricky Gervais to host after the blistering celebrity insults he delivered when he hosted the Golden Globes.

 

Kimmel is not known for being overly edgy. Therefore, he is viewed as being a very safe choice to host the show on February 26th. Kimmel has said that he wanted to host the Oscars. Now he will get his wish.

 

 

 

Jimmy Kimmel Shoots New Episode of “Lie Witness News” Focusing on Trump’s White House “Plans”

Late night host Jimmy Kimmel sent reporters out on the streets of Los Angeles for a brand new episode of “Lie Witness News.” In this episode, reporters told a bunch of people false news about President-elect Donald Trump’s decoration plans for the White House.

 

First, these reporters asked how people felt about Trump’s “plan” to tear down the White House and build a “bigger, better White House.” The man interviewed by the reporter said that he was totally open to any new change.

 

Later, the crew asked a woman what she felt about a White House food court. This woman thought the idea was ludicrous. However, when she heard Cinnabon might be included in this food court, she said that “Cinnabon is good!”

 

When the reporter told one man about plans Trump had for replacing the White House with a 50-story penthouse building with gold on the outside, the interviewee seemed flabbergasted. Finally, this man said that since the White House is the symbol of our nation, this renovation could only make us appear stronger on the world stage.

 

After answering, the interviewer asked this man where he heard this news report. The man said he thought he heard about it on Twitter.

 

In the end, this reporter got various people to petition Trump for a larger Christmas tree by chanting “bigger tree.” Of course, after chanting these words a few times, the interviewees realized they were really chanting “bigotry.”

 

Every one of these interviewees totally believed the most ridiculous lies about Trump’s plans for White House renovations.
