Tonight Show Highlights

Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

The Boston stylist who cuts Mitt Romney’s hair says that look is so distinguishable men come in and ask for a “Mitt.” They just ask for a “Mitt” and he knows what to do. And after they get that they head across the street to the girl working on the corner and ask for a “Herman Cain.”

Researchers in Japan are testing radiation levels at the Fukushima Daiichi plant by using wild monkeys. I don’t want to be paranoid, but isn’t that how every Godzilla movie started.

Pepsi employees are angry after the company introduced a smoking tax on the workers. Pepsi employees who smoke have to pay fifty dollars more a month for health insurance because of their risk to their personal health. Even worse, employees who drink Pepsi have to pay a hundred bucks a month.

The FDA is asking the police to arrest a man in Freemont, California who is running a one-man sperm bank out of his house. They want the place shut down. Isn’t that amazing, the onetime law enforcement in this country gets serious about locking up a banker, and it’s this guy.

The desk segment was Jay’s Office Holiday. It was ok overall, but not good enough to recommend watching.

Louis C.K. was the first couch guest. Among other things he stars on the television show Louie. The interview was great. Louis was dark, charismatic and very funny. He told some hilarious stories and comedy. I honestly would have been ok if he was the entire show. Here’s the interview:

Levi LaVallee was the second couch guest. He is an American snowmobile racer. The interview was entertaining. Levi did a nice job and seemed to be having a good time, considering he was out of his element sitting on a couch in Hollywood talking to Leno. The clips of him on the snowmobile were fun to watch. Here’s the interview:

Young the Giant was the musical guest. They gave a good performance.

Nice show. I give it:

– Woody
