Difficulty: 0

-Welcome back! -Oh, my goodness. Seth.

-I love to see you, my friend. -This is a a reunion.

-It is a reunion. We started together at SNL,

and now we find ourselves later in life.

We each got two children. Similar ages too, as well.

-Yes. You got boys.

-You got girls, right? You got a couple.

There's your oldest with your wife.

Look at how beautiful that is. -Yes. Yeah.

-And then, I like that the older one gets a glamour shot,

and then the younger one just, like --

You just catch what you can.

-You catch what you can when she's almost looking, you know?

-How are they?

-I love it, man. I love being a dad.

They're great.

If anybody has two siblings that's close in age

you know the oldest one tries to not to beat up the youngest one,

of course snatching everything the oldest one has.

So anything the oldest one has,

the baby is like, "Mine, mine, mine. Me, me, me."

And then every time she takes it,

the oldest one starts crying,

And I'm like, "What are -- You're bigger.

Why are you crying? Push her down. You know what I'm saying?

-Get it back. -Get it back. Get it back.

-You don't have to ask me permission for everything.

Step on her toe. We won't know. You know what I mean?

-You went back recently.

I saw you at the SNL 40th.

And then you went back again for the first time since then

for really one of the most historic episodes

of recent years, the Eddie Murphy show.

-Eddie Murphy show. -How was it?

How was it being there? -Amazing. I was very --

I flew from L.A. I left taping. I said, "I gotta go see Eddie."

And I came out,

and it was everything I thought it would be.

I thought I would have anxiety coming back to SNL.

It always feels like high school.

-Sure. -But it just felt normal

and great. And before I knew it,

I just wanted to watch the show. And Eddie did his thing.

I really came out to get the photo op.

-You wanted to take a picture. -I just wanted a picture, man!

-It's hard, though, 'cause there's not really a place --

It's not like there's a photo line at the end of the episode.

So, how'd it work out?

-At the after-party, 'cause I don't see Eddie.

We're waiting for him to come out of his dressing room

after the show. He never comes out.

Everybody's out there. It is a sea of famous black people

in Studio 8H. -Yeah.

-It was like a "Coming to America 2" audition

or something.

It was just everybody famous that wanted to be in the movie.

And so I don't see him there.

I get to the party. I'm sitting there.

Chris Rock kind of, like, waves over. And I'm like --

I'm thinking he's talking to me. So I go sit with Chris Rock.

And now we're all hanging out and talking, and I'm just like,

"Man, I just came out here to take a picture with Eddie."

He was like, "Good luck with that."

Eddie walks into the restaurant. Entourage of 10 people.

And I'm like, "Yeah, this isn't gonna happen.

The only way this could happen

is if he's -- coming...toward... me...right now."

And his chair was right here, and his table went that way

while I was on the end of the table going that way.

And I was like "Eddie!" He was like --

I was like, "Finesse!" He was like, "I know, I know.

Yeah, yeah." [ Laughter ]

And then took the pictures. -And we got proof!

There it is! Boom! Look at that! -There it is. I got my picture.

-It's perfect! [ Cheers and applause ]

-Not only just a excellent sketch player

but one of the best comedians all time.

-Best comedians of all time.

I will say it was a thrill to watch him do sketch again,

like, just remember, like, how good he was at that

in a way that nobody's been ever since.

-And it just reminded me of how bad I was

and why I made an early exit. -[ Laughs ] That is not true.

I love talking to people, especially from my era

and their failed sketches.

You had one with Snoop.

-Yes. Yes. -Who you've run into since.

-Yes. Let me tell you why I know "SNL" sometimes is traumatizing

not only just on the cast members who is leave the show

and say, "Oh, this didn't happen. That didn't happen."

The guests are always the same way.

Every time -- It's 20 years later. I see Snoop,

and he's like, "Finesse, why they didn't do The Apimptice?"

[ Laughter ]

Donald Trump had come on the show the week before.

We did this big "Apprentice" sketch.

So, Snoop comes on the week after,

and he has this grand idea to do "The Apimptice."

"And instead of saying, 'You're fired,'

I'll just smack a chick and say, 'You're tired.'"

[ Laughter, groaning ]

And I was like, "Yeah, Snoop.

I don't think NBC gonna let you smack anybody on TV, so..."

-He should be happy now that they didn't do that.

-That they didn't do it. [ Laughter ]

-You also had Jermazing. -Aww.

-Jermazing was a character that still holds a place in my heart.

-He had a Jheri curl, people.

And every time Jermazing got excited or you called his name,

he says "Huh?" And his Jheri curl juice

hits the person next to him in the face.

-And he was a waiter. -And he was a waiter.

So, imagine saying, "Waiter?" "Huh?"

And juice goes all into Seth's face or Kristen Wiig's face.

-And it was a lot of special effects for this,

because they couldn't use --

They couldn't actually make it work.

So somebody had to, like, spray juice from the other side.

-Right. Water wasn't leaving the wig in time.

So they wet a big paintbrush and just had water on a brush.

And every time I said "Huh?"

they just splash people. [ Laughter ]

So you just see Kristen Wiig soaked or Chris Parnell soaked.

And when we couldn't get it right,

they're sitting there all wet,

and they're just looking at me like, "Your days are numbered.

Your days are numbered." [ Laughter ]

-You did some Black History Month sketches that I --

-Now, those were -- And it's Black History Month.

-Right now. -Right now.

-Welcome back. Yeah. -Yes.

Yes. [ Cheers and applause ]

So, Pomerantz, one of my favorite people.

-Lauren Pomerantz. -Lauren Pomerantz.

-Wonderful writer. -J.B. Smoove.

-Yeah. -We came up with Kenny Wilkins

the first black man to say no to direct deposit.

-Yeah, very famous. -Yes, very famous sketch.

"So, how do I get my check?"

"Oh, we put it directly into your bank."

"Yeah, but how do I cash it?" "It is already in your account."

"But how do I know that?" [ Laughter ]

"You can check your statement."

"One second.

Hell naw!" [ Laughter ]

-Oh, man. -First black man to say no

to sushi. -Oh, yeah?

Kenny was that, as well. Right? -Yes.

And first black man to say no

to winter sports that only white people would do.

[ Laughter ]

-Have -- That was a fantastic clip.

Have you been enjoying "Outmatched?"

This is your first prime-time sitcom.

-This is my first prime-time sitcom.

The Lord has really been blessing people,

and I'm just really excited,

'cause it's a great cast and great show.

It stars Jason Biggs from "American Pie."

-There you go. -Everybody remember Jason Biggs.

-Great seeing him in the clip, as well.

-Uh-huh. And Maggie Lawson is his wife.

They have four great kids.

Three are geniuses, certified geniuses.

And they are not, as parents. They're very not smart.

And one child, the youngest, is not smart.

So that's the one they love the most and identify with

because the other three are trying to play

"Who's gonna run this house?" -I gotcha.

-And as parents, we all know kids who hit that age

where they think they're smarter than the parents.

So, I come over as the black best friend

and my beautiful wife Tisha Campbell, who plays Rita.

And everybody knows Tisha Campbell from "Martin"

and "My Wife and Kids." -Yeah, yeah, yeah.

-And she's a sitcom, you know, icon.

And it's just a great show, man.

-That's great, man. -It's fun.

-Congratulations on that. -I'm just excited about it.

-Congratulations on the kids.

Always great to see you, Finesse.

Thank you for being here, buddy. -Yes.

-Finesse Mitchell.
