07/22/2016 Views: 602

There's an author out there who Salman Rushdie really, really dislikes. (1:50)

(peaceful music)

(cheering)

- All right, I'm Larry, Salman Rushdie.

It's time for the game we like to call Keep It 100.

Keep it 100.

(laughing)

Now, how this works, I ask you a question,

you have to keep your answer 100% real.

If you do, you get the nice little sticker.

Bing!

- [Salman] Thank you.

- And, if not, there's only tea.

All right.

(laughs)

All right, my friend, if you could secretly

poison any author at a cocktail party,

(audience laughing)

living or dead, of course, you would be killing them again

if they were dead, and get away with it,

who would it be?

That's why you got to Keep It 100.

- Who do I really hate?

- [Larry] Come on.

Dig in there.

- Dead or alive, huh?

- Yeah, I prefer alive.

- You prefer.

- If it's dead they're already dead, there's no stakes.

- If they're alive who would I, God, that's really

tough because some of these people I know.

(audience laughing)

(clapping)

- Just get out my little tea.

- I think, maybe.

- I'm sorry?

- I think I'll tell youthe worst book I've read

in the last 10 years.

- [Larry] Yes, and you want them dead because of it.

- Yeah, theoretically for the sake,

actually they should be allowed to live,

preferably not write--

- For the sake of the game, you would kill them, though.

- But for the sake of the game, yeah.

(audience laughing)

What's his name--

- [Larry] I don't know.

- Who wrote the Da Vinci Code.

- Oh, Dan Brown.

(audience laughing)

- Salman Rushdie wants Dan Brown dead.

- I love that.

- Actually, the way thatyou would poison him

could be very inventive,very Da Vinci Code-ish.

- Yes, it could be in code.

- I like it, I like it.

There you go.

(clapping)

- [Voiceover] That's good.
