Stephen Hawking with Jim Carrey on ‘Conan’

Comedian Jim Carrey and scientist Stephen Hawking perform a comedy skit on The Conan O'Brien Show on May 22, 2003. We are guessing that part of the gag is Hawking, a certified brainiac, referring to Carrey as a "genius." Stephen Hawking was born in 1942, so he turned 61 the year this show was broadcast.
