James Adomian suspects that gay villains know how to party, Jessi Klein finds some sexual requests disconcerting, and Pete Holmes meets a cheerful airport employee.
as an empire, to thinkabout your legacy.
Every great empirehas a legacy.
The Egyptianshas the pyramids.
Rome had the Coliseum.
We in Britain had the MagnaCarta and the ability
to do this.
That-- Yeah, thatjust happened.
You just saw that ha-- Ijust put that in your face.
But it's tough, isn't it?
It's tough to pin downwhen it's subjective.
You know, when was that momentthat America became the most
American America itcould possibly be.
I thought you'd perfected itlast year when that guy went
up to the edge of space in aballoon and then jumped down
for no visiblereason whatsoever.
That was everything I loveabout this country.
You know, it wasincredibly brave
and it was completelypointless.
Everything I love aboutAmerica in one completely
And then I was devastated tofind out he wasn't American.
He was Austrian.
And, by the way, nice try,Austria, but you're still most
famous for Hitler.
But it's going to take a lotmore than a guy going up in a
balloon to space andjumping down
to make us forget thatlittle [beep] .
Yeah, that's right.
Hitler was terrible.
I just want to come outand let you know I'm gay.
I'm a gay person.
I go straight to gay.
That's the way I do it.
I always tell people that,because I don't necessarily
scan gay to everybody, like ina supermarket checkout sense.
And then it gets to me andit's like, Oh, we've got to
manually key this one in.
There are, like, adversitiesthat we face as gay people.
There's negative perceptions,
the media, and probably theworst one of those is the
archetype of the gay villain,which you see everywhere.
You see a gay villain in a lotof cartoons, a lot of movies.
It usually involves someonewith a thin moustache that
says, "Hmm, facial grooming.
Something must be afoul."
But they-- They have tohint at it like that.
They can't just come outand be like,
"Hey, the bad guy's the [BLEEP].
Watch out, you'll thank me."
It's not always just badguys, either.
Sometimes they're girlcharacters that's a gay
villain, because it'simportant to make gay girls
feel bad aboutthemselves too, right?
That's why we have "The LittleMermaid" and the main bad guy,
Ursula, the Sea Witch!
"I'm a big [BLEEP]with a butch haircut!"
What's the problem?
"I got black lipstick and a[BLEEP] with tentacles coming
out of it."
And I'm like, no.
Every time I've ever met awoman like that in my real
life, she's been awesome.
That's the woman thatgoes, "You know what?
The bar is closed, but I tellyou what: lock the doors.
One round on me."
"I got eight tentaclesand eight beer taps.
We're all getting[BLEEP] up tonight.
If you don't lose your voicepartying with me, you're doing
it wrong, because I'mdrinking all night."
All I'm saying is if you knowa gay villain, go to them.
They're probablyworth a good party.
But you would never know thatif you saw the last James Bond
movie, "Skyfall," that cameout last year, because
Javier Bardem plays the mostobvious gay villain of all time.
He enters the moviewearing a white
linen suit with an ascot, and
he's like, "Sachet,sachet, sachet.
Isn't terrorismfabulous, Mr. Bond?
Well, well, well.
Look at you, James Bond.
So weak here in my hackerdungeon, hacking and licking
and leaking and hacking.
I'm an evil, gay hacker.
Yes, because if there'ssomething scarier than
WikiLeaks, it's gay WikiLeaks.
Look, my teeth come out.
Are you ready for somefiendish fun, Mr. Bond?
Or maybe it's my turn.
Double over, 007."
Why does that-- Whyis he the bad guy?
Remember the big gayterrorist attack?
No, that never happened.
You remember the war,where all those
gay people killed thosepeople?
Nope, that was straightpeople.
I'm feeling good.I'm feeling very, very good.
I'm already in a good mood.
I think it's weird the thingsthat'll put you in a really
good mood, because I, uh, Iflew here, and I went through
And I, uh, I don'tknow about you guys.
I actually know solittle about you guys.
But when I travel, I lovewearing a T-shirt
that I don't care about.
I don't know why-- I think it'sbecause I get sweaty.
I'm a little embarrassed toadmit this, but when I fly,
I get sweaty.
I get off the plane, peopleare like, "You been jogging?"
I'm like, "No.
I've been sittingstill in the sky.
Got any water?"
So I always wear a shirtI don't care about.
Now, I've been giventhis shirt twice.
It's a shirt that says,
"Dr. Seuss, Green Eggs and Ham."
You're right to laugh at that.
Twice, as a gift, from twodifferent parties.
The first time I was like,Well, they've misread
The second time it was likethe universe was like,
"Put the [BLEEP] shirt on."
So I wear itsometimes when I fly.
And I'm wearing this shirt
going through airport security.
And I don't want to say-- Idon't want to be too edgy here
tonight, but the TSA canbe filled with
a bunch of grumpies.
I know a lot of you came for mydivisive bad-boy humor.
And here it is.
I'm leaning on a lamppostflicking a nickel,
lighting a match on my neck.
Just like, "Yeah,full of grumpies."
Every once in a while you getthe one guy that loves being
at the TSA.
It's like an old guy.
He's moonwalkingaround, wanding people.
Everything's coming up Gary!
Like, [BLEEP] Gary, he'sgetting cancer from everything
He's like zippety-do-dah.
I love a Gary.
And I got a Gary.
So I'm wearing this shirt.
I forgot that I'mwearing this shirt.
I go through the machine, it'searly in the morning.
And just all I hear fromoutside-- This is what put me
in a good mood for,like, two days.
I hear this woman in the TSAgo, "What you know about green
eggs and ham?"
Two days I've beenin a good mood.
I was like, "What?"
"What you know-- What-- Whatyou know about
green eggs and ham?"
I forgot I was wearing theshirt. I was like,
"What-- Is this a terroristquestion?
Are those code names?
Are you hitting on me?
What does this mean?"
"What you know aboutgreen eggs and ham?"
Which is weird, because shewas Korean, and--
I'm just kidding.
She was a sassy black woman,just like you cast her in your
minds, you racists.
You did a perfectjob, you racists.
"What you know about--" Itgets deafer
every time I do it.
"Green eggs and ham!"
That's all it took toput me in a
wonderful, wonderful mood.
"What you-- Whatyou know about--"
She'll never know how deeply
