AND MY MOM, WHEN I FIRST TOLD HER THERE’S GOING TO BE SOME SEX SCENES IN THE SHOW, SHE DID ASK ME SMEP WAS LIKE, DO YOU HAVE TO MAKE THE NOISES? [ LAUGHTER ] AND I THINK SHE MAYBE THOUGHT SOMEONE WOULD DUB IN LIKE “OOH, AH.” BUT I WAS LIKE, IT’S ME.>>Jimmy: DO YOU HAVE TO MAKE THE NOISES?>>YEAH, YEAH.>>Jimmy: WHO IN YOUR FAMILY IS MOST EXCITED ABOUT YOUR SHOW BUSINESS CAREER?>>OH, GOSH. WELL, EVERYONE. BUT ALSO MY GRANDMA IS LIKE A TRUE DIEHARD. MY GRAMMY IN TUCSON. SHE — BUT SHE’S BEEN LIKE MY NUMBER ONE FAN FROM DAY ONE, YOU KNOW.>>Jimmy: NICE.>>SHE REALLY THINKS I CAN DO NO WRONG, AND SHE THINKS I SHOULD DO A LOT MORE IN ENTERTAINMENT. LIKE SHE’S ALWAYS PUSHING ME TO SING. AND I’M NOT A SINGER. AND PRETTY MUCH EVERY TIME I VISIT HER SHE’S LIKE, “SING FOR US. SING FOR US RIGHT NOW.” [ LAUGHTER ] AND SHE’LL BE LIKE, YOU SHOULD SING SOME JUDY GARLAND. AND I’M LIKE, I THINK BACK IN THE DAY THAT’S HOW THEY USED TO ENTERTAIN EACH OTHER. LIKE SOMEONE WOULD STEP UP AND BE LIKE “HELLO, BABY,” OR WHATEVER. BUT NOW EVEN WHEN MY BROTHER AND I ARE TOGETHER SHE’S LIKE YOU SHOULD BE A SINGING DUO. TRAVEL THE COUNTRY. AND I’LL TELL YOU, WE SHOULD NOT.>>Jimmy: YOU SHOULD NOT BE A SINGING DUO.>>NO. IT’S NOT A GOOD IDEA.>>Jimmy: YOUR SHOW “SHRILL” IS SET IN PORTLAND.>>YEAH.>>Jimmy: DO YOU SHOOT IT IN PORTLAND?>>OH, YEAH. WE REALLY DO. I LOVE IT THERE. IT’S THE BEST. FOOD IS INCREDIBLE. IT’S A DREAM.>>Jimmy: IT’S A COOL TOWN FOR SURE. AND IS THAT WHERE YOU INITIALLY DECIDED — BECAUSE I KNOW YOU’RE FROM ARIZONA ORIGINALLY. YOU WANTED TO GET AWAY FROM THE FAMILY?>>YES. THAT’S RIGHT. NO, NO. I MEAN, THAT’S — YOU KNOW, THE SHOW IS BASED ON A MEMOIR THAT’S SET IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST. SO WE KIND OF WANTED TO STAY TRUE TO THAT. BUT YEAH, IT’S REALLY NICE. MY HUSBAND LIKE COMES AND VISITS ME.>>Jimmy: ON THE SET?>>YEAH. ON THE SET. AND WE LIKE MAKE A LITTLE TIME OF IT. ACTUALLY, WE WENT TO THIS RESTAURANT CALLED MED LUD WHICH IS LIKE THIS VERY FANCY PLACE AND THEY MAKE EVERYTHING FROM SCRATCH INCLUDING THE BUTTERS AND THE ROLLS AND THE VEGETABLES THEY GROW THERE. BUT THEY SAT US ON THIS LIKE COMMUNAL BENCH KIND OF. IT WAS LIKE US AND ANOTHER COUPLE. AND WE’RE — THE LADIES SEATED NEXT TO ME. BUT I NOTICED THAT THEY WERE LIKE ACTING VERY WEIRD. YOU KNOW, THEY KEPT LOOKING AT EACH OTHER AND THEN LOOK AT US. AND THEY DIDN’T ORDER ANY FOOD.>>Jimmy: THAT IS WEIRD.>>AT THIS PLACE WHERE LIKE EVERYTHING IS ABOUT THE FOOD. AND THEN THEY JUST PAID FOR THEIR DRINKS. AND THE WHOLE TIME I HAD FELT LIKE A VIBRATION THAT I THOUGHT HER PHONE WAS GOING OFF.>>Jimmy: UH-HUH.>>AND THEN RIGHT AS THEY PAID FOR THE CHECK SHE LIKE TURNED TO ME AND WAS LIKE, “IT’S A REMOTE CONTROL VIBRATOR, AND IT’S AMAZING.” [ LAUGHTER ] AND I WAS STUNNED TO MY CORE. AND I REALIZED HOW DIFFERENT OUR VIBES WERE. [ LAUGHTER ] BECAUSE I HAD GONE THERE TO EAT LIKE 3,000 CALORIES OF LIKE HOMEMADE BUTTER. AND THEY HAD GONE THERE TO LIKE BE HORNY IN PUBLIC. [ LAUGHTER ] BUT I GUESS THAT IS HOW I’M HORNY IN PUBLIC.>>Jimmy: SAME HERE.>>YES. [ APPLAUSE ]>>Jimmy: YEAH, I DON’T NEED THAT.>>NO, NO.>>Jimmy: YOU WENT TO AN ALL GIRLS’ CATHOLIC SCHOOL IN PHOENIX. I LIVED IN PHOENIX FOR A FEW YEARS. I KNOW THAT SCHOOL YOU WENT TO.>>IT’S A — WOW. IT’S A BAD ONE.>>Jimmy: HOW DID YOU COME AWAY FROM THAT? FEELING MORE CATHOLIC OR LESS?>>WELL, I WASN’T CATHOLIC TO BEGIN WITH.>>Jimmy: OH.>>SO THE WHOLE TIME I WAS THERE I WAS LIKE WHOA, WHOA, WHOA. WHAT’S GOING ON? EVERYBODY’S STANDING AND SINGING AND WOW.>>Jimmy: YEAH, YOU’VE GOT TO KNOW THE THINGS.>>YES.>>Jimmy: I GREW UP CATHOLIC AS WELL. YOU KNOW, AND WHEN I GO TO CHICH I KNOW THE RIGHT TIMES TO DO THINGS. AND I LIKE TO LORD IT OVER THOSE WHO DON’T.>>I DIDN’T, AND I WAS AT ALL TIMES LIKE WHOA, WHOA. VERY BEHIND.>>Jimmy: WERE YOU INTO THEATER AND ALL THAT STUFF IN SCHOOL?>>A LITTLE BIT. I DID THE ANNOUNCEMENTS AT MY SCHOOL.>>Jimmy: EVERY MORNING?>>YEAH. YEAH. AND WE DID THEM LIKE OVER THE LITTLE TV OR WHATEVER. LIKE A CLOSED CIRCUIT TV.>>Jimmy: YOU HAD A VIDEO ANNOUNCEMENT SYSTEM?>>YEAH.>>Jimmy: WOW.>>AND IT WAS OPERATED BY A NUN.>>Jimmy: REALLY? [ LAUGHTER ]>>YEAH. MY NUN CAMERA MAN.>>Jimmy: SO YOU’RE DOING A LITTLE TV SHOW EVERY MORNING.>>I MEAN, IT WAS ABOUT VOLLEYBALL TIMES. YEAH.>>Jimmy: WOULD THEY TELL WHAT YOU TO SAY OR — >>A LITTLE BIT OF BOTH. THEY WOULD GIVE US THE TIMES. AND I WOULD BE LIKE EVERYBODY GET TO PRACTICE AT THIS TIME. BUT EVERY NOW AND THEN I WOULD JAZZ IT UP AND OUR DEAN WOULD GET VERY SCARED THAT HE I WAS GOING TO GO ROGUE AND LIKE SAY SOMETHING NASTY. SO SHE WOULD OFTEN SORT OF PULL ME OFF TO THE SIDE AND BE LIKE YOU CAN’T BE FLIP. THE FLIPNESS ISN’T GOING TO FLY ON THE TV. BECAUSE I THINK SHE THOUGHT I WAS FLIPPANT. WHICH I’M NOT. I’M LIKE EMOTIONALLY UNWELL BECAUSE I CARE SO MUCH.>>Jimmy: DID THAT MAKE YOU LIKE A CELEBRITY IN THE SCHOOL, THAT PEOPLE SAW YOU ON THE CLOSED CIRCUIT EACH DAY?>>I GUESS YOU COULD SAY THAT. SURE. THE TEENS OF PHOENIX, ARIZONA REALLY THOUGHT I WAS SOMETHING.>>Jimmy: WELL, THE SHOW IS VERY FUNNY. BOTH SHOWS ARE VERY FUNNY. “SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE” AND SEASON 2 OF “SHRILL” ON HULU.

  1. I love her!! She is my favorite 🙂 Also for people who are making comments about her dress…. who asked you?? Portland loves you!

  2. No Jimmy you did not make or popularize the internet! You and you kind are infact ruining the internet! Stay on cable you once a man now a Prime Time tv host. What happend to the boobies and beer? That is exceptable for the internet but this……….i scoff at this pageantry you pawn off as entertainment! Have you no lack of shame you were once Man on a tv show i was not allowed to watch now you are on a show that i would feel ok with sharing with a baby.

  3. agent: aidy is curvy

    dressers: more curvy?

    agent: no i mean.. she is curv-

    dressers: SHE WANT MORE CURRVEEE

    agent: no that's not what i mea-

    dressers: DONE. WE SPEND 3000 DOLLAHS.

    agent: 🙂 we will take it.

  4. As a plus size woman I know there aren't many styles of dresses that work for plus sized women. Aidy would be better off having a signature outfit and just wearing different designs (similar to the way Diane Keaton does) rather than wearing a wrinkled bedsheet.

  5. I binge watched her show, “Shrill” not initially knowing what I would be in for, only that Aidy was in the starring role.

  6. Oh my God…you can't deny she is a chubby person…fact…and I love what she does on SNL etc. Yet, who the hell came up with this ridiculous dress…that person should be fired immediately…🤯🤯🤯

  7. Aidy looks beautiful! I love jimmy but I wish this was Seth because aidy truly shines When she interviews with Seth. Every single one of her Seth interviews is laugh out loud hilarious.
