Late Night Highlights
Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon:
Happy birthday to President Obama who turned 49 today. And his approval rating turned 41.
Some sad news: Morrie Yohai, the man who created the Cheez Doodles has died at the age of 90. His remains were placed in an urn and sealed with a chip clip.
Fox has approached The Situation from Jersey Shore about staring in an upcoming episode of the drama Bones. They asked him to come in for the audition and he was like, “Who the hell is The Audition?”
Big sports news: Shaquille O’Neal is officially joining the Boston Celtics. Well, it’s about time Boston had an actual Irish player.
Only one desk segment this time, and it was the still-decently-funny Late Night Hashtags:
Will Ferrell was the first couch guest. He’s in the new film The Other Guys. I like Will most of the time. He cracks me up pretty well, but sometimes I’m not crazy about the movies he’s in. Will and Jimmy worked at SNL together so they spent most of the interview reliving the good old days. Here is an example:
The second part of the interview included a really hilarious SNL-type skit. It’s long, but totally worth it. For people outside the US you can watch it, I think, here:
Tim DeKay was the second couch guest. He stars on the show White Colar. When he came out The Roots played the heavy metal Timmy song that Timmy sang on his first episode of South Park. Man, that was obscure and very funny. The interview was ok, but he didn’t get a chance to talk much because Jimmy and Will kept stealing the segment.
Mike Posner was the musical guest. He was fine.
Really good show. I give it:
