>>>SHE HIT THE COMEDY SCENE IN
2008, WHEN SHE WON “LAST COMIC STANDING.”
NOW, ILIZA HAS A SHOW IN “TRUTH AND ILAZA.”
>>IF IT MEANS SINGING ABOUT HER DOG, SHE WILL DO IT.
♪ THIS IS A SONG ABOUT MY DOG
I BOUGHT YOU A HYPOALLERGENIC BED ♪
♪ BUT YOU WOULD RATHER SLEEP ON MY iPHONE CHARGER ♪
♪ SQUIRRELS UPSET YOU TINY DOG IN THE WORLD ♪
♪ TINY, TINY, TINY ♪ >>WE KNOW THAT WAS YOUR
FAVORITE CLIP WE COULD HAVE PULLED.
>>THE ONLY CLIP WE HAVE. >>I LOVE THAT I HAD TO SING IN
FRONT OF SHERYL CROW. I DIDN’T KNOW YOU WERE GOING TO
BE HERE. THAT’S HOW IT IS DONE.
FOR A LATE-NIGHT SHOW, YOU TONIGHT HAVE A MONOLOGUE.
WE DIDN’T NEED ANOTHER PERSON TAKING THE SAME SHOTS.
ALSO, MONOLOGUES ARE HARD. EACH SHOW AS A TEAM.
WE HAVE A THEME AT THE TOP. HOW YOU GET WOKE, IS SOCIETY
DEVOLVING.
>>IT’S CURRENT STUFF. >>IT’S CURRENT STUFF.
— IT’S NOT A POLITICAL SHOW. IT’S A SOCIAL SHOW.
WHAT’S GOING ON AND HOW ARE WE FEELING AS PEOPLE ABOUT THAT?
>>BUT THEMED ON A QUESTION. >>A QUESTION AT THE TOP.
>>IS SOCIETY DEVOLVING. WHAT CAN YOU SAY?
WE LIVE IN THIS CULTURE WHERE, THOSE ROSES O OFFEND ME.
YOU CAN’T DO OR SAY ANYTHING. WE HAVE SKETCHES AND INTERVIEWS.
NONE OF IT IS DONE YET BECAUSE IT’S LIVE TO TAPE.
>>YOU’RE THE EXECUTIVE PRODUCER ON THIS.
>>I AM. >>WHY DID YOU WANT TO EXECUTIVE
PRODUCE? >>I WAS GIVEN AN OPPORTUNITY TO
DO MY OWN SHOW. AT THE END OF THE DAY, YOU’RE
LIKE, THAT WAS MY MESS AND I OWN IT AND I’M PROUD OF IT.
>>I WANT — I WANT MY OWN PARKING SPOT.
THAT’S THE THING THAT COMES WITH IT.
PARKING SPOTS ARE NOT FOR PEOPLE IN NEW YORK.
>>YOU’RE ABLE TO APPEAL TO YOUNGER WOMEN AND EVEN OLDER
WOMEN, LIKE MY AGE. >>SHERYL, I’M SO GLAD YOU
BROUGHT THAT UP. IT’S SO IMPORTANT.
I FELT THAT NOBODY WAS REALLY SPEAKING TO WOMEN MY AGE.
I’M A MILLENNIAL. BUT I’M AN ELDER MILLENNIAL.
I REMEMBER LAND LINES. >>DO YOU REALLY?
>>I REMEMBER WHEN NANA WOULD CALL AND IT WAS A BIG DEAL.
I WANTED TO SPEAK TO WOMEN IN AN INFORMED AND IN A FUNNY WAY.
>>OOH. >>EVERYTHING IS LIKE, ARE YOU A
GIRL? TAKE THIS SEX QUIZ OR LEARN
ABOUT WHAT’S GOING ON AND TAKE A STANCE.
>>I LOVE THAT. I’M EXCITED ABOUT YOUR SHOW.
>>WILL YOU BE A GUEST? >>I WOULD LOVE TO.
>>SHE COULDN’T SAY NO. >>YOU’RE BOOKING YOUR SHOW.
>>I’M EXECUTIVE PRODUCER WITH A PARKING SPOT.
>>ALWAYS ON THE MIND. GOOD GUEST.
CAN YOU COME ON? ALL THE BEST.
I THINK YOU TAPPED INTO SOMETHING.
>>AS LONG AS WE CAN SING TOGETHER.
>>THAT LOOKED GOOD. YOU’RE A GREAT SINGER.
>>I’LL GIVE YOU A TUTORIAL. >>YOU
