good at being famous? – I don’t think of myself as famous. I have a sort of theory. I call it the bag of dog food syndrome. – Do tell. – You know there are people like see it, advertisement for dog food on TV, and then they see it
somewhere in the stores, and then go I saw that on TV. That’s how I feel. I feel like the bag of dog food. (audience laughing) That’s just this thing. Does that make sense? You want a clue? – Yeah. I would love to have a clue. – Okay well the first
clue, as it turns out, is a food clue. (audience laughing) – [Tig] Thanks Mike. – Thanks Mike. – I’m vegan. Okay, even this is vegan? – Vegan wings.

learn more about him. – Right right well let
me see if I can help. Your guest and I were in a little movie called Gattaca in which I
played the break out role of Sequencing Technician. (audience laughing) I still remember my lines
if you wanna know them. – I know them by heart, but I’d like to hear you say them. – Yeah here they are, you ready? – Yeah. – How long? The actor says something. And then the other line
is I’ll see what I can do. (audience laughing) – My God Ken. – It’s like hearing them
again for the first time. – I would tell you what your
guest is most famous for but much like a monk, I’m taking a vow of silence. That was your clue. (audience laughing) – I feel like he was on the show Monk.
