"It's a miracle that you and Fifty Cent are still alive."

What a toolish comment.

It was kind of a weird interview. . . but you have to remember that it's late night comedy and deal with it accordingly.

"It's a miracle that you and Fifty Cent are still alive."


I thought that was a fantastic opener. Made me chuckle. I thought it was a pretty good interview over all. Alex is the awkward one in my opinion. I don't blame him though. That would be a tough crowd. Especially with somebody asking the typical banal questions. Overall I thought they both did pretty good and I chuckled throughout. Typical late-night stuff. Thanks for sharing. That was fun.

I wonder if he's going to shift his focus now. At the very end he said that now he could "relax for a while".

Would have loved seeing Warren Harding, or Donini, take on Kimmel.
They would, or woulda, owned him.

I thought the interview went fine. Good energy from the crowd, some good laughs. It may not have been what the crusties of the Taco wanted to see, but for the rest of America, it was pretty good.

Thanks for posting. Funny and enjoyable.
In the lingo of the business, I thought Honnold "killed it." He was entertaining, thoughtful, and did a good job explaining the climb to people that most likely have no idea of the magnitude of what he accomplished.
Also good to hear he loves rock climbing :)

Fun interview.

That was a great interview.

But did anyone else see the shirt, the hair, and the ears and think of a young Spock? In a good way, BTW. Spock is one of the greats of American culture.

Thanks for the link! Yea, Alex seemed a touch out of his element if you ask me, but I thought it still went reasonably well. I think he is more relaxed one on one or on a big wall.

I too found the following line, funny...


"It's a miracle that you and Fifty Cent are still alive."...


Overall, I think Kimmel did a decent job with the interview...
