Billy Crystal Loves Australia

>> Jimmy: WE ARE BACK WITH BILLY CRYSTAL.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] HE'S ABOUT TO BEGIN A TOUR CALLED SPEND THE NIGHT WITH BILLY CRYSTAL THAT KICKS OFF JANUARY 21st IN MIAMI, FLORIDA.

YOU SAID IT'S GOING TO BE A TALK SHOW TYPE OF THING.

BUT WHO WILL YOU BE TALKING TO? >> THE FIRST NIGHT WILL BE THE REALLY AMAZING BONNIE HUNT.

>> Jimmy: OH, SHE'S GREAT.

>> SHE'S GREAT.

AND SHE'S FUNNY AND SMART.

AND I'M THRILLED.

THE SHOW IS VERY LOOSE.

SHE TAKES ME THROUGH MOMENTS IN MY LIFE, MY CAREER.

IT'S VERY IMPROVISED AND FUNNY.

I STAND AND I'M UP ON MY FEET ABOUT 85, 90% OF THE TIME.

BUT THE AUDIENCES IN AUSTRALIA FOUND THAT THEY LIKED IT BETTER THAN A CONCERT, TYPICAL CONCERT SHOW BECAUSE IT WAS MORE INTIMATE.

THEY FELT LIKE THEY WERE SITTING AT A TABLE.

>> Jimmy: WITH THE CONVERSATION.

>> AND IT WAS GREAT.

AND WE SHOW CLIPS.

>> Jimmy: FUNNY FOR BONNIE AFTER NIGHT 25 OF INTERVIEWING YOU.

DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR ME? >> WE GO BACK AND FORTH.

>> Jimmy: YOU DO? >> IT WILL BE GREAT.

>> Jimmy: I WANT TO ASK YOU ABOUT THIS AMAZING PHOTOGRAPH.

>> OH, YEAH.

>> Jimmy: THIS WAS TAKEN WHERE? >> IN SYDAT SYDNEY AT A CHINESE RESTAURANT CALLED THE GOLDEN CENTURY.

THIS IS NOT A FRIEND OF MINE.

[ LAUGHTER ] THAT'S A 17-POUND CRAB.

>> Jimmy: HOW DID YOU DECIDE WHO GOT THE EAT WHO? >> WELL, I LEFT THAT UP TO HIM.

YOU KNOW, THEY FISH IN WATERS OFF, YOU KNOW, DOWN IN NEW ZEALAND.

>> Jimmy: YEAH.

>> SO EVERYTHING'S BIG.

>> Jimmy: EVERYTHING'S BIG AND DEADLY.

>> OH, THERE'S INCREDIBLE SCARY THINGS THERE.

>> Jimmy: YEAH.

>> THEY HAVE NINE OF THE MOST VENOMOUS SNAKES AND THE MOST LETHAL MIGHT BE RUPERT MURDOCH.

[ LAUGHTER ] SO IT'S A SCARY PLACE.

BUT THE MOST FABULOUS PEOPLE.

WE WERE IN EVERY CITY THERE.

AND THEY WERE GREAT AUDIENCES AND THE FOOD IS AMAZING.

>> Jimmy: SOUNDS LIKE YOU'RE READY TO MOVE TO AUSTRALIA.

>> IT WAS REALLY WEIRD BECAUSE I WAS THERE DURING THE CONVENTIONS.

>> Jimmy: OH, YOU WERE? SO WAS EVERYONE ASKING YOU WHAT'S GOING ON? >> WHAT'S HAPPENING THERE, WHAT'S GOING ON THERE? AND THEN, YOU KNOW, THEY SAW COVERAGE OF OPEN CARRY, PEOPLE WITH GUNS.

>> Jimmy: THEY DON'T DO THAT THERE.

>> NO.

NOT AT ALL.

>> Jimmy: I WOULD THINK IF ANY PLACE HAD THAT BESIDES US, IT WOULD BE AUSTRALIA.

>> THEY'RE THE MOST PEACEFUL LOVING PEOPLE.

>> Jimmy: THEY HAVE SO MANY SNAKES, THEY SHOULD BE CARRYING GUNS.

>> BUT THEY ALSO HAVE MANDATORY VOTING.

YOU HAVE TO VOTE.

WE HAD 46% OF OUR POPULATION DID NOT VOTE.

>> Jimmy: I KNOW.

IT'S TERRIBLE.

BUT IT WAS GREAT.

SO I STARTED — I HAVE A LITTLE COLD.

SOMETIMES YOU STUMBLE INTO FUNNY THINGS.

>> Jimmy: YEAH.

>> ALL RIGHT.

I WOKE UP THIS MORNING AND I WAS REALLY NASAL.

I HAD AN EARLY PHONE CALL LIKE 6:30 IN THE MORNING.

WHEN I GOT ON THE PHONE, I SAID, I SOUND LIKE DAVID GERGEN.

THIS WOULD BE THE ODDEST IMITATION OF ALL TIME.

>> Jimmy: OKAY, ALL RIGHT.

>> BUT I SAW HIM FOR MONTHS ON CNN.

HE'S PROBABLY THE SMARTEST OF ALL PEOPLE WHO COVER EVERYTHING.

HILLARY CLINTON HAS TO MAKE UP HER MIND [ LAUGHTER ] I MEAN, SHE HAS TO MAKE THAT SPEECH OF HER LIFE TONIGHT.

I BELIEVE THAT SHE WILL DO THAT.

SECRETARY CLINTON IS A VERY SMART WOMAN.

SHE SURROUNDED HERSELF WITH PEOPLE.

AND I BELIEVE THIS COULD BE THE TIME OF HER LIFE.

>> Jimmy: THAT'S GOOD.

THAT'S VERY GOOD.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] >> NOW, ONLY ABOUT 800 PEOPLE GOT IT, BUT THEY LOVED IT.

>> THEN I BIT MY LIP THIS MORNING.

I WAS TALKING OUT THE SIDE OF MY MOUTH.

OH, MY GOD, I SOUND LIKE DAVID AXELROD.

AND I'M NOT COMING OUT AND BEING LIKE DAVID FREY OR ANYTHING.

BUT THE DEMOCRATS NEED A CONSENSUS OF WHO THEY WANT TO BE.

>> Jimmy: THAT'S VERY GOOD, YEAH.

I FEEL LIKE I'M RELIVING THE ELECTION.

>> I'M DONE.

THAT'S IT.

>> Jimmy: WHAT ARE YOU DOING FOR THANKSGIVING? >> THEY'RE ALL COMING.

>> Jimmy: THE WHOLE FAMILY'S COMING? >> YEAH.

30 OF THEM.

>> Jimmy: 30 OF THEM.

WILL YOU COOK? >> YEAH, WE DO EVERYTHING.

WE MAKE THE KEY THINGS.

>> Jimmy: DO YOU PERSONALLY MAKE ANY OF THE KEY THINGS, LIKE THE TURKEY? >> NO.

I CARVE.

>> Jimmy: YOU CARVE? THAT'S IMPORTANT.

>> YEAH.

>> Jimmy: ARE YOU A GOOD CARVER? >> YES, I'M A VERY GOOD CARVER.

>> Jimmy: WHAT'S YOUR STRATEGY WHEN YOU CARVE THE TURKEY? >> ANYTHING GOES.

>> Jimmy: NO, WE HAVE TO TALK.

>> YOU HAVE TO CUT IT DOWN THE.
