John Mulaney and Andy Samberg as hosts in Jimmy Kimmel’s second bout against COVID-19. stepped in with

John Mulaney and Andy Samberg stepped out for Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday night amid his ongoing COVID-19 battle. The comedians—both of whom were set to guest on Wednesday’s show—guest-hosted Jimmy Kimmel Live! In light of Kimmel’s absence.

In their opening monologue, the pair dressed head-to-toe in ZooImmi Kimmel Live! Murch poked fun at Kimmel’s double diagnosis.

“I think we should explain why we’re hosting tonight,” Mulaney began. “You remember how Jimmy said he didn’t have COVID, but then he said he had COVID? Well, he was right both times.”

“That’s right, Jimmy has contracted COVID again for the second time in three weeks,” Samberg said. “And we’re thinking they should probably change the name of the show Jimmy Kimmel Alive.,

Mulaney contemplates Kimmel’s life as a sick child, and his dreams of one day hosting a one-night talk show.

“It’s especially sad that Jimmy is sick, ’cause he grew up in Brooklyn as a sick kid, you know? And he looks out the window and he sees other kids playing stick ball, And he tries to run over there and his mom will go, ‘Jimmy Kimmel, you come in and you take your medicine.'”

“Did you just launch the one man show about Jimmy?” Samberg asked.

“It’s just something I’m working on,” Mulaney shot back.

He continued, “He’ll go, ‘Mom, one day I’ll never be sick again and I’ll have my own talk show,’ and he’ll be in his room with a hairbrush and a bunch of dolls as the audience, and he’ll be like that. , ‘And I’ll have my own show and I’m gonna have to prank my family, and I’ll never be sick, and this show will slowly get more political over the years…”

Jokes aside, Samberg assured the audience that Jimmy is doing fine, despite his second COVID-19 diagnosis.

“But in all seriousness, we are praying for Jimmy to be better a Catholic god and a Jewish god — two gods who are notorious for suggestions,” Samberg said.

Mulaney and Samberg revealed that they are not only hosting, but their guest stars on the show as well.

“To make it an even bigger pressure situation, we’re not only hosting, we’re also two of the show’s guests,” said Mulaney.

“For any of you who don’t like what you’re seeing right now, because it’s not going to get any better,” Samberg said. Coming up it’s more, but way less is fine.”

And while he knows he’s not a long-standing talk show host, he promised to do his best.

“Look, at the end of the day, we know we’re not Jimmy, but we’re here to do what Jimmy does best – entertain…,” Samberg said.

“Get Covid,” Mulaney interjected.

“Enter you,” Samberg insisted.

The pair’s guest-hosting gig comes just a day after Kimmel announced that he tested positive for the coronavirus once again.

“I am such a positive person, I tested positive again. I feel fine,” Kimmel wrote on Twitter Tuesday night. “The great John @Mulaney and Andy Samberg @TheLonelyIsland have humbly agreed to host @JimmyKimmelLive for me tomorrow.

Kimmel’s second positive test result comes just days after her first tested positive for the virus and returned to her hosting duties on May 9.

The 54-year-old tweeted on May 2, “Our daughter covid us (even though we specifically told her not to) all feeling fine, I’m double waxed and boosted, but the show won’t go on.” Needed.” Thanks to tomcruise & @iliza and mike birbiglia @birbigs who will be working for me from last night.”

Kimmel shared that he will be staying at home with his wife, Molly McNeary, and their two children, Jane, 7 and Billy, 5.

Guests scheduled for the rest of the week include Cheryl Hines, Zac Efron, Alfonso Ribeiro, Jessica Biel and Glenn Powell. Music guests have included Gang of Youths, Perquet Courts and St. Paul and the Broken Bones.

Other late-night hosts who have battled COVID-19 in recent months include Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers, Jimmy Fallon and James Corden. Colbert returned as host late Show On Monday too, after suffering from a recurrence of the virus, which kept him away from the show for two weeks.
