[ cheers and applause ] yes! friday -- a lot of crazy stuff is happening here at the end of the week. john edwards -- you remember john edwards? well, he finally admitted that he's the father of his mistress' baby after denying it for over a year. so, it's a pretty classic case of whoever denied it, supplied it.

[ cheers and applause ] ♪ (announcer) for many with arthritis pain,
not treating is not an option. all prescription nsaid pain relievers, like celebrex, ibuprofen and naproxen, help treat arthritis pain and have some of the same warnings. but since individual results may vary, having options is important. prescription celebrex has been the option for millions of patients for 10 straight years. just one 200-mg celebrex (once a day,) can provide dependable, 24-hour relief for many with arthritis pain, stiffness and inflammation. bad on the available data, the fda stated that for certain patients celebrex's benefits outweigh the risks. if you are worried about stomach upset, you should know, in clinical studies, a lower percentage of patients taking celebrex reported stomach discomfort versus prescription ibuprofen and naproxen.
and if you are taking low-dose aspirin for your heart and need an nsaid pain reliever, celebrex can be used because it doesn't interfere with the effects of low-dose aspirin. but when it comes to relieving your arthritis pain, you and your doctor need to balance the benefits with the risks. the fda requires all prescription nsaids, including celebrex, ibuprofen, naproxen and meloxicam, to have the same cardiovascular warning. they all may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. this chance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors for it such as high blood pressure or when nsaids are taken for long periods. all prescription nsaids, including celebrex, also increase the chance of serious skin reactions or stomach and intestine problems, such as bleeding and ulcers, which can occur without warning and may cause death. patients also taking aspirin and the elderly are at increased risk for stomach bleeding and ulcers. do not take celebrex if you're allergic to aspirin or sulfonamides.

♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: welcome back, everybody. our next guest was the co-creator of the legendary "chappelle's show" and he's the director of the new film "the goods: live hard, sell hard," which is out this weekend. he's also a very hilarious stand-up comedian. please welcome the comic stylings of neal brennan, everybody. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you. so, hi. so, i was watching cnn today and i got to say, i like cnn because even when it's bad news, it's kind of good on cnn. well, you know who has the saddest news on earth? you ever accidentally watch that british news? know what i'm talking about? that bbc news?
those sad-ass british accents on there. like, just the way they pronounce countries on there bums me out. like "pakistan." ew. [ light laughter ] "kuala lump." please. [ laughter ] like, they can make any news story sound sad on there. like, "today, packs of wood nymphs traveled the hillsides of new jersey passing out chocolate chip cookies and hand jobs." [ laughter ] "we got to stay out of new jersey." so, yeah, so, jersey, i think, and california, where i live, they've started passing laws about the phone -- talking on the phone and driving. they've outlawed it. you gotta have a hands-free device in california and a lot of states, but you gotta have the hands-free device. but mine broke recently, a year and a half ago. so, i think we all have the same plan for not getting pulled over, right? driving along, talking to your
friends, look over, see a cop. [ laughter ] then you got to yell to your friend like, "yo, there's a cop next to me. just hang out for a second, all right?" [ laughter ] same plan? texting and driving is illegal, too. and it should be. because texting and driving is some mind-bending stuff. seriously. because you'll be driving along. you'll be like, "let me just quickly --" [ laughter ] "text my friend here." then you look up and you're like, "wow, was i driving that whole time?" [ laughter ] "that was dangerous. geeze." [ laughter ] "because when i looked down, i was on the highway. and now i'm in my garage."
[ laughter ] "well, at least it was an important text. 'no, you're a dumbass.'" but i'm not here to talk about texting. i'm here to talk to the ladies. [ cheers ] ladies, do you love romance? [ cheers ] yeah, you should. because it pretty much only benefits you guys. [ laughter ] the whole culture of romance is, like, we just have to do stuff for you. and there's really no end to it either. 'cause, like, we'll take you guys out to dinner, right? and we're going to pay, which, for a guy, is, like, crazy romantic. [ laughter ] but it's not enough. you know how i know it's not enough? because they always let that lady in. what lady? the creepiest lady on earth. the flower lady. whenever i see her i'm like, "who let her in? god." "roses for the lady?" [ laughter and applause ] "roses for the lady?"
[ laughter ] and i don't mind getting roses for the lady, but my problem is there's nothing for men. there's nothing for men. they come around with roses for the lady but no one's behind her like, "baseball card for the gentleman?" [ laughter ] as a guy, you just get used to like, you know, getting the short end of the stick when it comes to romance. like, every commercial is for girls. "give her a december to remember." "a diamond is forever." ♪ every kiss begins with kay ♪ you know why they're all for women?
because you can't advertise what guys want. [ laughter and applause ] yeah, like, legally, you're not allowed. [ laughter ] you'll never see a commercial like, "ladies, this holiday season, give him the gift he's waited for all year. a day of silence followed by a three-way with you and your hottest friend." [ laughter ] "followed by more silence." [ laughter ] "only from jc penney." you guys have a fun time. good night, everybody. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: neal brenn, everybody. more with neal when we come back. [ cheers and applause ] ♪
