Episode 4: Zooey Deschanel & Ben Schwartz – ‘Tonight You Belong to Me' (from ‘The Jerk')

Editor’s note: This was such an amazing duet, we had to share it again! Love these two :)

I tend to describe the people I love most as people that feel like “cousins” to me or “summer camp friends.” I find that labeling my relationships is really quite important and amusing. Zooey and Ben often come over and we have a family dinner together. Hanging with Ben and Zooey feels like hanging out with your favorite cousins, but the kind of cousins who are extremely talented.

Ben Schwartz is one of my favorite humans and writer/comedians. I had no idea what improv comedy even was until I met him. Shocking, right? Zooey is a co-founder of HelloGiggles and good at everything she does – I really mean everything! The other day Zooey was just playing around on her “uke” (that’s a really cool word for ukelele) and she and Ben started to just make up songs and then sing songs I also loved. It was like having my own private variety show.

I decided that I shouldn’t be so selfish to keep this special private. So, guys, enjoy Zooey and Ben singing ‘Tonight You Belong to Me’ from the best movie, The Jerk. Also, try to imagine Ben as Steve Martin and Zooey as Bernadette Peters, and then just try not to smile.

    I love the Patience & Prudence version of this song, but the ukelele is a really sweet touch. Adorable!

  • Michael John

    THAT was our wedding song. It actually was. However we didn’t have a wedding song until our 20th anniversary. That is when we renewed our vows. We originally got married by a judge to avoid all that wedding falderol. However, after 20 years, it was the perfect song from our favorite movie. Thanks for playing that!

  • Anna Schatte

    The best thing to wake-up to and get me pumped about an audition today is Jean-Ralphio singing to me sweetly!! Love this!!
