  • i dont like toilet jokes

  • "Do you like good times?"😂😂😂

  • The timing of "Improv... all day" hesitation was subtle but got a chuckle.

  • Will's studio looks like a bathroom. Complete with towel bar and vent, and is that a shower door to the right? I actually think he's sitting on a toilet.

  • In the future, whenever I suggest an activity to a friend, neighbor or work colleague, I will always begin with: "Do you like good times?"

  • The stupendous memory optionally mug because expansion chemically water vice a strange ton. hushed, cluttered pharmacist

    • The queen has left the out house.

  • I felt like I could hear and see Stevens changing attitude and posture when Will brought up Paul McCartney as a solo act, given what I've heard say about the summer his father and brothers dies. Stephen Colbert and Anderson Cooper on grief should bring it up on YT

  • So hilarious. My face is red. “Do you like good times?”😂

  • Our family loves Lego Masters! Thanks for the Good Times, Will!

  • I'd watch Stephen & Will banter every night. So much fun.

  • I worked in the Essex House hotel as a waitress. Lots of fun stories from that!

  • Never heard of any of these peeps except Paul and Kamala.

  • Wait, was Arnett doing the interview FROM a bathroom stall? Just looking at that grip bar in the background and thinking maybe he's sitting in there sideways....

  • Every time he speaks, I keep hearing Bojack Horseman’s voice

  • Durrr Me newfie me offendid

  • Nice to hear the maritimes mentioned!

  • This was a great interview! I never knew just how funny a pair Will Arnett and Stephen Colbert could be, but I LOVED IT!! - 10/10 Would *absolutely* watch these two go back and forth for hours! 😆😆

  • Good Canadian content!!

  • Colbert said the N word, i demand his apology and canceling

  • Looks more like a bathroom with that towel rack

  • That’s the natural reaction for any non-Québécois Canadian when they are accused of being Québécois. It just happens involuntarily for no real reason. 🤷🏻‍♀️

  • Is that a grab bar behind Will Arnett?

  • What the fuck are you guys talking about lol

  • God I love Will Arnett.

  • It looks like he's in the handicap stall at the Airport 🤣🤣🤣🤣🥰

  • Hey we didn't reject Will Arnett. At least not formally

  • Hope you never step on one of those Legos...Ouch!

  • Hey! I'm from NB Will! We're nice people, usually. LOL

  • One of the funniest interviews ever on Colbert. Arnett is a riot. I never saw Stephen laugh so much.

  • "It's the people from the Martimes: the Newfies..." ... Newfoundland isn't in the Maritimes.

  • Can some audio guy explain why the audio isn't great even though Will's equipment is supposedly top notch?

  • Canadian actor Will Arnett

  • This interview was amazing 😂🤣 Leave it to a Canadian to make a reality show about literally building people up with adored childhood blocks.

  • 👋👋 lol from Moncton

  • "America's Sweetheart" is Paul Rudd. Sorry fellas...

  • "What do you have over these people?" The correct response: "I'm Batman."

  • toward the end i noticed the grab bar behind will . . . is he in one of those high-quality hotel bathrooms he knows about?

  • Get your Civil War started. quit wasting the worlds time. No one is ever going to want to deal with you no matter who wins. Your all liars and thieves .. you just switch to who is wearing the white or black hat for the day. I hope you realize that fact. Were side stepping you and making new deals as I type this. Your in the second stage of imploding .. just like Rome. So .. "Get er done" the world is damn tired of listening to you talk with your ass crack.

  • *FUCK* those three commercial interruptions. And, Will: You made Stephen laugh so hard he had to take off his glasses and wipe the tears out of his eyes. You rock, Will.

  • In the finale episode, when Bojack tells Diane he was going through a podcast phase I didn't expected him to be this hardcore into it .. 🙃

  • Stephen is having such a blast!! 😂🤣😂

  • That's an ADA safety rail behind Will, is he like, in a bathroom? Just curious...

  • Do you like Good Times? Hell yes. Dyn-o-mite!

  • Mr. Witherspoon and BoJack Horseman are having a conversation.

  • Bojack?

    • Horseman obviously.

  • holy crap. One of the best interviews Ive seen 😂😂😂😂😂 Love Will Arnett! The man can do no wrong 😂😂

  • These two are nuts!!!!!!🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣

  • This guy's voice doesn't match his face.

  • this guy would make some great reeses commercials

    • or the voice to an animated horse with an alcohol addiction that comes from a broken family

  • Thanks to Seth Meyers for proper Lego pluaralization on Corrections.

  • totalbiscuit

  • Please change your mind on bringing back the audience. The show has been SOOOOO much better with with wife and writers/staff laughing the in the background. And the interviews - so much more genuine imo (same goes for Meyers and Conan.

  • So nice to hear Americans say Lego and not Legos!!!!!

  • Watching Stephen Lose it laughing the entire interview just made my heart happy. more of that please.

  • probably the funniest episode on this show ever!! 😂😂love this guy

  • I just flashed on Will Arnett grabbing the Door Man's hat in the Hotel's lobby (right near the revolving door) and crapping in it like in the gun fight scene from "1 million ways to die in the west" Still giggling 5 mins later. If you've ever seen Will Arnett's tough guy face in "Let's go to Prison" you'll know exactly what I'm imagining right now. LOL - Oh man I just saw the Door Man's face and started cracking up again.... (My talent is wasted on Programming - I should have been a writer for comedy or parodies....I probably would have made more money too) .....I can hear the monotonous sound of the door in the silence as it revolves and people who are entering the hotel just continuing around to go back outside again. LOL

  • My people have been recognized in a Stephen Colbert video, I shall accept this.

  • Why does his setup look so pro but sound so bad?

  • Looking at a map, I've been so close to PEI a couple times, didn't realize it. Next time I'm up that way I need to make a point of visiting.

  • of course the podcast is a success, he is literally a cartoon character, it's as if Homer Simpson started a podcast. Everyone wants to listen to Bojack

  • all i think when i hear his voice is LET ME SEE SOME BOOOJACK

  • You two made me laugh so hard my needy fifteen year old tabby cat got up off my inner arm and walked away.
