Late Night Highlights
Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon:
We were off last week and I missed a ton of news. Apparently Charlie Sheen started a war in Egypt by doing coke with the cast of Skins.
CBS is putting the highly-rated show Two and a Half Men on hiatus until Charlie Sheen finishes rehab. Which is why, today, NBC sent him three “get well” porn stars and a suitcase full of cocaine.
Bristol Palin recently announced she has a new boyfriend. No word yet on their baby’s name.
A minor league baseball team in Ohio will hold a promotion called Three Dog Night, where they sell a hot dog stuffed in a bratwurst, stuffed in kielbasa. Then all three of those will be stuffed in a fat guy, stuffed in a suit, stuffed in a coffin, stuffed in the ground.
The desk segments were He Said/She Said and Freestylin’ with The Roots. Freestylin’ was far superior, but there’s no clip for it, which is a bummer. You’ll just have to trust me that it was funny and well done.
Bill Paxton was the first couch guest. He stars on the HBO show Big Love. I really enjoy Bill as an actor. He’s has some great roles in some terrific films. The interview was very good. Bill was cool and told some entertaining stories. Here’s a clip:
Adam Scott was the second couch guest. He is on the show Parks and Recreation. The interview was fine, but very quick. They spent almost the entire time talking about his character on the show. Meh.
Edie Brickell was the musical guest. She was great.
Good show. I give it:
