He explained that his character after a chase and car crash in the Australian outback wakes up in a hospital of no memory of who he is or why he’s in Australia.

‘There are hints of the show Lost, I think,’ Jimmy said.

‘Sure, minus the jungle, I guess,’ Jamie said to laughter.

‘How do you play a guy with amnesia?,’ Jimmy then asked him.

‘Um, I forget,’ Jamie deadpanned as the studio audience laughed and applauded.

‘Our drummer’s asleep over there,’ Jimmy said as he looked over for a rimshot that didn’t materialize.

Jimmy then took the opportunity to gain more understanding about how to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, including saying Saint Paddy instead of Saint Patty.

He lathered two slices of ‘mighty white’ bread with heavy mayonnaise and then added about five slices of cheap ham.

Jamie then dumped a whole bag of potato, cheese and onion crisps and smashed it down.

‘I thought it was going to be good, it’s about six times more delicious than I imagined it would be,’ Jimmy said.
