"The thing that I'm most impressed with: You actually have to use a lasso in the show," began host Meyers.
"Yes," confirmed Rockwell. "Occasionally we lasso Nina [Arianda], and we lasso chairs and stuff — it's a trip."
"What happens when you miss?" asked Meyers.
"That's too much pressure," agreed Meyers. "I maintain that the character's drinking tequila, and it's fine," replied Rockwell. He went on to say that he would practice his lasso skills by roping trash cans in Tompkins Square Park in New York City's East Village.
"In Tompkins Square Park you get some odd people coming up," continued Rockwell. "You're calling attention to yourself, so you sort of deserve it." He gave Meyers a run-down of some of the more interesting characters who approached him during his practice sessions, including a skate-boarder and a junkie.
