- Well, it's so nice to meet you.

- Jim gaffigan.
- Gaffigan.
- Yes.
- That's my name.
- I assume "jim" is short for "james.
" - It is.
- What is "gaffigan" short for? - It's short for "gaffiganopoulos.
" - Oh, really? - You know, my parents were greek immigrants, and - I can see that.
- Yeah.
So we-- We kind of shortened it, 'cause it was pretty aw-- It was awkward.
- For show business? - Yeah, and also it's just, Like, my football jersey was too long.
- Mm-hmm.
- Stuff like that.
- I hate it when you're playing football, And you have to wear a football jersey All the way down to your knees.
- Yeah, that's awkward.
- Now, jim, you're a stand-up comedian.
- I am.
- Why is there always a stool onstage? Is that to tempt you away from standing up into sitting down? P.
S.
, am I funny? - Yes.
I mean, to the first question.
I would say that the stool is-- That goes back to when they invented stand-up.
- Mm.
- Mark twain actually-- He was also--he started-- he used to do articles, And then he would do shows.
- Is that how you started-- articles first? - I started with articles first, mostly in parade magazine.
Well, I would write questions in to parade magazine.
- Oh, okay.
Letters to the editor.
- Yeah.
- That's not really an article.
- Kind of like-- some of my more famous ones, I asked, "is tom cruise a good guy?" That was one of my questions.
But back to the story-- - What was-- what was the answer, if I may? - The answer was, "yes, he is a good guy.
" - Fantastic.
I've always thought that.
- It was some good insight provided.
- So, jim, you are a stand-up comedian.
- Yes, I am.
- How do you deal with hecklers? Tell you what, why don't I just ask you a question - Okay.
- And then reggie and I will heckle you, And we'll see how you deal with it.
- All right, all right.
- So, uh, jim, where were you born? - [bleep] you.
- Wow.
So you just preemptively do that Before anyone even gets a chance to do it? - Your mom's fat.
- Reggie, are you ever heckled? - Yeah.
Definitely.
- Do you ever feel sad when that happens? - I mean, it's okay.
- Yeah.
Do you ever feel sad? - Isn't that what food's for? - Oh, right.
- You don't feel sad if you're eating.
- [chuckles] - right? - That's true.
- [grunts] - sorry.
- You stole my red shoes while I was sleeping.
- No, these are mine.
- These are his, hooch.
- Those are mine, man.
- Hooch! - This is bull[bleep].
I go to sleep, you steal my shoes.
- The pope gave me these shoes, hooch.
Are you all right? - No, man, I need some sleep.
- All right, we'll try to keep it down, hooch.
Sorry.
- Just keep it down.
- Sorry.
- Yeah, sorry.
- Started dreaming about a stool.
- Jim, do you think comedians should steal each other's jokes? - I would say probably no.
- Hmm.
- That usually is a bad thing.
- There's a big debate on that issue.
- I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that I'm against racism.
- Wow.
Reggie that-- that affects you directly.
- [exhales deeply] yeah.
- I also support the troops.
I don't know about you guys.
- I don't go that far.
- Yeah.
- Jim, they say that laughter is the best medicine.
- Yes.
- In your opinion, what is the second-best medicine? - Um, well, that's a very good question.
- Thank you.
- I would say the second-best medicine is probably, um, sleep.
- Just sleep it off.
Really? - We're talking about hangovers or? - Anything.
Cancer, broken leg.
- Cancer-- I don't know if-- - anything in that spectrum-- Cancer, broken leg.
- I don't know how much cancer has been cured by laughter.
See, that seems like it would be bad.
Like, I've got-- I've got colon cancer, And then you're like, "ha ha ha!" I don't know if a cancer patient would react positively to that.
- Wait, so you're the doctor laughing at them? - Well, if laughter is the best medicine-- - I think what that means is that If there's something wrong with you, You laughing helps, not people laughing at you.
- Oh, so you're turning it on its side.
Wow.
So the doctor has cancer.
- So, jim, I've always wanted to ask you, How do you juggle work and family? - Well, I'm not physically juggling them.
But I, uh--I'm-- - wha-- Sorry, excuse me.
Who are you guys? - Oh, these are-- These are guys from my reality show.
- Oh, I didn't know you had a reality show.
- Oh, yeah.
Yeah, I got a reality show.
They capture everything.
They follow me, you know.
From the bedroom to the bathroom, you know, everything.

- Take a look at my greatest achievement.
[triumphant music] - my word, that is big.
What exactly is that thing? - Scott, this here is a machine that teleports your hands So you can touch your wife's tits.
- W-what? - It teleports your hands so you can touch your wife's tits.
Here's how it works.
You reach your hands in the machine, It teleports them wherever your wife may be, And you touch her tits.
- Wait, wait, wait, back up.
It--it teleports? This is gonna revolutionize transportation.
This is crazy.
- Ooh, scott, no, it has absolutely nothing To do with transportation, It's specifically for touching your wife's tits.
- No, no, no, no, dr.
Fleen, You made it big enough that you could Just put your whole body in there.
- Why would you need your whole body to touch your wife's tits? You just use your hands.
- No, I'm saying you could walk into it, right? - Uh-huh.
Yeah.
- And then you would be transported - Okay.
- Anywhere you want to go in the world, Like--like France.

- No, no, no, no, no, no, forget about your wife.
- Uh, no.
I love my wife.
- No--I--okay, I realize you love your wife, But what I'm trying to say is think of the thousands of people Who fly on airplanes every single day, okay? - Mm-hmm.
- They would really want to use your machine.
- Scott, I could make a fortune.
- Yes! - I can put the machine on the plane, And people can touch their wives' tits while they fly! Aukerman, you've done-- oh.
The machine won't fit on a plane.
- [sighs] - Never mind.
- Okay, all right.
Dr.
Fleen, this is just for your hands, that's it? It doesn't do anything else? - Well, it's actually got a pretty amazing feature.
I am quite glad that you asked, scott.
Feast your eyes over here.
I've attached a phone so you can call ahead, Tell your wife to take off her bra.
- I'm sorry.
Dr.
Fleen, I think it's a little weird that you're a grown man, A scientist, and you're obsessing over touching breasts? - Well, if you think that that's weird, Then call me "king weirdo," scott, Because I married a round-chested woman, And by god, I'm gonna touch her tits till the day I die.
- That's actually really sweet.
Okay.
- You're damn right it's sweet, scott.
