[ cheers and applause ] i don't know. it's a good song either way. i saw that this weekend, many potential candidates for the gop presidential nomination attended a fundraising dinner in iowa. and you can tell the republican field is getting a little too big because half of them had to sit in illinois. >> steve: really? >> jimmy: yeah. that's right, republican presidential candidates attended a dinner in iowa with 1,400 guests. i don't want to say republican voters are getting old, but half of those guests were baseball players who walked out of a nearby cornfield. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] if you caucus, they will come. [ laughter ] actually, i saw that george w. bush gave the commencement speech at southern methodist university on saturday. and he told graduates that other than being president, college was the best eight years of his life. [ laughter ] george w. bush, he actually gave this commencement speech to southern methodist
university this weekend, it was pretty inspirational. listen to this. >> those of you who are graduating this afternoon with high honors, awards and distinctions i say well done. and as i like to tell the "c" students, you, too, can be president. [ laughter and applause ] >> jimmy: you got to give it up. that's good. >> steve: come on. >> jimmy: you know it's bad when even george w. bush has george w. bush comedy material in his act. well in a recent interview harry reid said that hillary clinton has "a clear field" to the 2016 democratic nomination because there are no "all-stars" to challenge her. on the other hand -- ♪ hey now, you're an all star get your game on go play ♪ >> jimmy: yeah. you're an all-star to us, joe! we love you buddy. [ applause ] check this out, guys.
the lego land hotel opened in orlando, florida last week. it features over two million lego bricks. it's pretty cool. in fact people who stayed there are already leaving yelp reviews. i was checking them out. here's what some of them said. first review said, "i woke up with excruciating neck pain because my pillow is literally made out of hard plastic nubs. who thought this was a good idea?" >> steve: wow. >> jimmy: the next review said, "i tried to do a cannon ball into the hotel swimming pool and broke both of my legs." [ laughter ] not real water. >> steve: there's not water in the pool, it's legos. >> jimmy: then the next review says, "wanted to get a massage in the hotel spa, but the masseuse had those weird lego hands shaped like the letter 'c.' no thanks." you know that'll do. >> steve: wow. [ applause ] >> jimmy: and finally, this last review says, "i just stayed at the duplo hotel down the street. it's much bigger and easier to get into." that makes sense. smart move. [ applause ]
did you guys see this? higgins did you see this? the charity boxing thing that romney did this weekend? >> steve: oh, yeah. >> jimmy: during a charity boxing match on friday, mitt romney lasted two rounds against evander holyfield and raised one million dollars. yeah. it was just like holyfield's fight with mike tyson, except romney chewed off his other ear talking about his 18 grandchildren. first there's nate, there's nate number 2. he's a cute guy. nate number three he's really -- that's right, mitt romney took on evander holyfield in a a boxing match for charity this week, and it was a pretty one-sided fight. check it out.

we have a special guest, yeah. plus he is a talented actor and author of "gumption: relighting the torch of freedom with america's gutsiest troublemakers." nick offerman is joining us. >> steve: yeah. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: he is great. >> steve: a man's man. >> jimmy: i love him. yeah. it's a manly show. but then we have the beautiful, the talented, music from janelle monae featuring jidenna. [ cheers and applause ] hey, guys i want to take a a minute to talk about david letterman who i'm sure everyone here knows who will be retiring after 33 years of innovation, fun and just plain weirdness. uh, but mostly fun. i, like many of you, grew up watching dave. everybody did. i mean if you saw somebody throw water melons off a roof and you go, oh my gosh, adults get paid for doing that? i mean, it's just -- that type of stuff had never been done on tv before. this is at 12:30. this is after "the tonight
show" all you had was johnny carson. you know? so this is kind of like unexplored space. this is like the wild, wild west. you know? and i think this show, and what "late night" has become is a a result of him playing with the genre and experimenting and exploring and doing that stuff. and i like every kid who grew up watching him will miss him. i want to show you something. yeah. [ cheers and applause ] this is something from my eighth grade yearbook. it's my eight great yearbook at st. mary of the snow school. and at the end the teacher makes predictions about what her students were going to go on to do. i don't know why she had this talent. or she think she does. but anyways, she made this thing. first here's a picture of me at the computer. that's me there. [ laughter ] but you go down here and it says, james fallon will replace david letterman on the "late night" show. and that's -- i want to go to the racetrack with this teacher.
[ cheers and applause ] pretty close. and it's so weird because i never thought i was going to do a job like this or this type of job. i'm just growing up. i'm just a kid there eighth grade. how old was eighth grade? i was 20? >> steve: 30? 32? 15? >> jimmy: and so when they offered me, really to do, they offered me to do the "late night" show before this show and i was like, i talked to my wife and i go, "i don't know, should i do this thing?" and she goes, "yeah, you'll be great at it. i don't know. she goes take a chance." if anything the list is short. there are only two other people who have do it before you. conan o'brien and david letterman. she goes, so even if you fail it's still a good list to be on. it's a good club. [ laughter ] i go thanks for the vote of confidence. but, yeah. and so we ended up doing it and it changed my life. 'cause now here we are at "the tonight show" and everything is going great. and i remember we were doing "late night" and it was a hit. and they asked me to do dave. they asked me to do the
david letterman show. and so i knew it was going to be my last time because now i'm in the -- i'm playing the same game he is. i mean you don't want to see a a talk show host going on another guy's talk show to talk about a talk show. it's like i have a show to talk so i might as well just do the talk show here while i have the talk show. so i knew it was going to be my last one. and going to letterman, i don't know if anyone will talk about this or has talked about this. it's an odd experience. you go there and apparently dave -- i don't even know if this is even true, but they said dave doesn't want to see you before the show. he doesn't want to see anyone. he wants to save it for the stage. and so i said -- sure, whatever. and you go there. i had been on the show numerous times and guest hosted one time. but you go there and it's just kind of scary. and you go and they rush you into a dressing room. everything is white and no art work on the wall. it's like going into the hospital. [ laughter ] to be really honest. not the worst one but not the greatest one. i mean, it's shelter. it counts as a shelter, your
dressing room. and there's a door you can go in and out of. not as much fun as you like. but you go there and you just kind of sit there and wring your hands and you think about what bits you're going to do. and you get nervous and you go oh, my gosh. and so i knew it was going to be my last one so i just wanted it to be great. and then you go past hair and makeup and they're all supportive and great and they're really nice. and you go down the stage and you hear paul shaffer an the cbs orchestra just blaring, just playing great music. how great is paul shaffer too? i'm going to miss him. [ applause ] just phenomenal. and you hear that and your heart is racing and they put a a microphone on you. and you got the microphone on. and then biff henderson comes over, and you go oh you're biff henderson. like, i watch the show. and you feel like you know him. and biff came over to me and he goes, "jimmy, dave wants to say hi to you." i go, "before the bit?" i'm about to do my segment. he goes, no at the desk. so i peaked out from behind the curtain and i looked at dave and he goes -- [ laughter ]
and that just made me laugh and that's what i will always remember about going on the dave letterman's show. like he just -- i just don't know how to describe him. he's just so -- i think he taught us how to be -- how do to do something smart and stupid for comedy. there's comedy that can be smart and stupid. he just wants to have fun and be goofy. i always remember that. and he is always just there when you need him. you know, i remember after 9/11, you know, we needed somebody. and the city was in shock and we're all looking for answers and we wanted to see what dave had to say. and we looked to him to say something. and he said something. and i don't want to misquote him, so i had it printed out. he said, there is only one requirement for any of us and that is to be courageous because courage as you might know defines all other human behavior. david letterman is -- that is so nice. we needed that. [ cheers and applause ]
david letterman is courageous. have a nice retirement, dave. we'll be back with more of "the tonight show," everybody.
