Late Night Highlights
Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon:
There’s talk that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is under a lot of pressure from Republicans to run for President. Also under a lot of pressure: Chris Christie’s belt.
This is amazing. I just read about a 61-year-old woman in Brazil who is pregnant. It’s convenient though, when she breastfeeds she can just leave the baby on the floor.
Arnold Schwarzenegger has commissioned an 8-foot bronze sculpture of himself. There’s even going to be a maid in charge of polishing it.
The desk segment was Models and Buckets. Who doesn’t get enjoyment from seeing models pour buckets of stuff over people’s heads:
Andy Samberg was the first couch guest. Among everything else he’s involved with he is still a regular on Saturday Night Live. The segment was hilarious. It wasn’t so much an interview as two guys just goofing around. It worked for me, though, as Andy was very funny, and Jimmy knew how to have a good time. It’s worth watching for a couple of solid laughs:
Jimmy and Andy then did a segment with Elmo. It was also terrific. If you only have time today for one clip, this is it:
Nick Mason was the second couch guest. He is a founding member of Pink Floyd. The interview was good, but too short. It was made even shorter by the fact that Jimmy kept stumbling all over himself with excitement of having Nick on his show. I appreciate Jimmy’s attitude, but Nick was very mellow, and I think the segment would have been better if Jimmy had calmed down and just let Nick talk more. Still, I think the interview is worth checking out if you have time:
The Shins was the musical guest. It’s Pink Floyd week, and they did a real nice job covering the classic Breathe.
Great show. I give it:
