Late Night Highlights
Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon:
A ninety-nine year-old man is filing for divorce from his ninety-six year-old wife, making them the world’s oldest divorce couple. It’s gotta be weird when a divorce lawyer is fighting for your kids to get custody of you.

Chef Geoffrey Zakarian was the cooking guest. He recently became the newest Iron Chef. I’m a huge fan of cooking segments, and I like Geoffrey a lot when he’s a judge on Chopped, but the segment wasn’t very entertaining.
Good show. I give it:
