One of the most ambitious parts of Jimmy Kimmel’s critically praised performance as host of the 68th annual Emmy Awards happened right at the start: an opening segment that included Julia Louis-Dreyfus, James Corden, Emilia Clarke, the cast of Modern Family, and even former Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush. But as Kimmel showed during Monday night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, the bit didn’t go off without a hitch.
Kimmel aired a blooper reel during his show — or “boners and boo-boos” as he called it, as a way to avoid the term “bloopers” — which showed mistakes made by Louis-Dreyfus, Kimmel himself, and even Bush.
Having Bush participate was the coup of the sketch, as the former candidate acted as an Uber driver and mocked his many campaign missteps. “If you run a positive campaign, the voters will ultimately make the right choice,” Bush said to Kimmel, before kicking him out of the car. “And shave that wig off your face, you Godless Hollywood hippie! Jeb exclamation point!”
