Late Night Highlights

It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Were my favorite monologue jokes:

Vice President Joe Biden spoke at a retirement home in Maryland today to reassure senior citizens about healthcare reform. The seniors didn’t really care what Biden said in the speech, they were just happy to outlive it.

Did you hear about this? Libya’s President Moammar Kadafi gave a lengthy tirade to the U.N. General Assembly today. He was supposed to talk for fifteen minutes, but went on a ninety-minute rant instead. I mean, where’s Kanye when you need him?

Last night Arizona Diamondback’s third-baseman Mark Reynolds set a new Major League Baseball record when he struck out two-hundred and five times in one season. One of his teammates went to give him a high-five, but, of course, he missed.

The desk segment was a battle between Jimmy and Flashback Guy. It had a couple of funny moments, but overall can be skipped.

Amy Poehler was the first couch guest. Back when Amy was on the Jay Leno show I wrote the following:

I’m a mediocre fan of Amy Poehler. She has talent and is a hard worker. But I think she is at her best when she is in a scene with someone funnier than her. Her interview didn’t do anything to change that opinion.

Well, again, she didn’t do anything to change that opinion.

Dan Fogler was the second couch guest. I hadn’t heard of Dan before, but he’s not only a screen actor, he’s a Tony Award-winner. I really enjoyed watching him. I thought was very funny and his improvisation during the interview was great. He was my favorite part of the show. Ironically, he’s the only guest that they didn’t create a clip for on Hulu.

Parkour Athletes were the third couch guests. Their skills are worth watching:

Wayne Federman was the stand-up guest. He was ok.

The show was decent. I give it:


– Woody
