Late Night Highlights
Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon:
I read that Romney’s campaign has raised ten million dollars in California over the last two days. One million was from a fundraiser, while nine million was from Romney checking the pocket in some old khakis.
Tonight on the show we have Matthew McConaughey and R. Kelly. Yeah, why do I get the feeling I’m going to be the only guy wearing a shirt?
Happy birthday to Alex Trebek who turned 72 years-old yesterday. It was weird, when his family got him a nice tie he was like, “Ooh, sorry, I was looking for iPad. iPad.”
The desk segments were Don’t Quote Me and Karate Piñata. Both were fine, but not nearly entertaining enough to be worth spending your time watching.
Matthew McConaughey was the first couch guest. He is in the upcoming film Killer Joe. The interview was good. Matthew was nice, relaxed and told some fun stories. It still amazes me how charismatic and down-to-earth this guy is, without even a hint of trying. The interview is worth checking out:
After chatting for a few minutes Jimmy and Matthew participated in a scooter race. Jimmy has done racing games with guests before, but I’ve never found them enjoyable, and this one was no exception.
Carla Gugino was the second couch guest. She is on the show Political Animals. The interview was pretty good. Carla was pleasant, good-natured and altogether likeable. She told some interesting stories about herself. Here’s the first-half of the interview:
R. Kelly was the musical guest. He gave a decent performance.
Just an ok show. I give it:
