Kristen Wiig brings a 'first date' to 'Kimmel'

Posted on

Kristen Wiig
ABC

You’re a famous actress-slash-comedian looking to change your single status. Do you a) ask your manager to set you up with someone equally famous and single, b) try going off the beaten path by asking your assistant’s assistant if they know anybody cute and available, or c) wade into the murky world of online dating — and, upon finding someone you like, suggest meeting up for the first time on Jimmy Kimmel Live?

Kristen Wiig chose option c, interrupting her Spoils of Babylon promotion to bring the guy himself (“David”) onto Kimmel’s set. The two proceeded to have an extremely awkward, very first-datey sort of conversation. It was all a bit, of course, but a good one — and it might just make you consider upping your own first date game.

See Wiig and “David” in all their glory in our highlight video below.
