Late Night Highlights
Huge congratulations to Jimmy Fallon for receiving a Grammy nomination for best comedy album and to The Roots for best rap album. Good luck guys!
Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon:
Barbara Walters has released part of her Most Fascinating People list, and this year Hillary Clinton and Honey Boo Boo are both on it. That’s right, the woman who may soon be president, and Hillary Clinton.
Yesterday Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced that New York will hold a contest to redesign the city’s payphones. Top prize: a brand new Walkman.
Disney just lost its case against the company that produces Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. Even more embarrassing, they lost it on the easiest question.
The comedy segments were He Said/She Said and a reading of Twas the Night Before Christmas with Tracey Morgan. Both had amusing moments, but only the latter had enough to recommend checking out:
Tracey Morgan was the first couch guest. He is one of the stars of the television show 30 Rock. The interview was great. Tracey was the hilarious and goofy self that I never get tired of watching. Granted, the interview didn’t have much in the way of substance, but the fact that he wasn’t there to promote anything made the whole segment even more enjoyable. He even covered an El DeBarge song with the Roots. Here’s the interview:
Richard Lewis was the second couch guest. He’s a standup comedian currently on tour. The interview was fine. Richard was manic, funny and told some amusing stories. I was on the fence for a while on whether or not to recommend watching it, but decided in the end that it had some interesting stuff.
Tyler Florence was the cooking guest. He is a chef and the host of multiple shows on the Food Network. This was not one of the better cooking segments I’ve ever seen, but I love when chefs are on and cooking, so here it is:
Good show. I give it:
