Late Night Highlights
Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon:
Last night Mitt Romney went three for three by winning the primaries in Maryland, Wisconsin and Washington, DC. Not to be out done Rick Santorum went three for three by offending women, atheists and Latinos.
A Delta Airlines flight attendant was removed from a plane this morning because he was acting unstable. Yeah, he was saying crazy stuff you’d never hear on a Delta flight like, “Prepare for an on-time arrival.”
That’s right, a Delta flight attendant was removed for acting unstable, but on the bright side he was immediately hired as a pilot for Jet Blue.
The Mets are now offering peanut-free seating for fans with severe allergies. Mets officials said they want to make sure that gagging and choking only occurs on the field.
The desk segments were Late Night e-Cards and Audience Suggestion Box. While the E-Cards bit was ok, ASB was very funny and I enjoyed it a lot. It’s worth watching despite the fact that they broke it up into four videos:
Mayor Michael Bloomberg was the first couch guest. He is the mayor of New York City. The interview was pretty good. Michael is a smart guy and a seasoned public speaker, so he easily handled Fallon’s questions. This was refreshing, considering that some of people who come on late night talk shows struggle to put coherent sentences together. I also liked the fact that he had a sense of humor and was able to take some jokes at his expense. Here’s the interview:
Alyson Hannigan was the second couch guest. She co-stars on the show How I Met Your Mother and in the new film American Reunion. The interview was good, but not long enough. I’m a huge Alyson fan and really appreciated that she did Late Night despite being very pregnant. I just wish she had had more time to talk about a larger variety of subjects. Here’s the majority of the interview:
Pegi Young and the Survivors was the musical guest. They gave a nice performance.
Solid show. I give it:
