Jimmy Kimmel Live! Highlights

Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!:

Quick show of hands, how many of you got in line outside because you thought you’d be able to get forty percent off on electronics tonight?

Today is typically the busiest travel day of the year, but a lot of people’s plans are being ruined because of the big storm on the East Coast. Almost six hundred flights have been cancelled, almost 7,000 flights have been delayed, which is terrible news for travelers and great news for Cinnabon.

Once Thanksgivings out of the way it’s time for Black Friday, so don’t forget to charge your Tasers and make sure you have enough pepper spray.

I want to wish a happy Hanukkah to all our Jewish viewers. Hanukkah, of course, is the Jewish holiday based on the Adam Sandler song.

The comedy segment bit was “Skype Scavenger Hunt: Thanksgiving Edition”. It was decent, but nowhere near entertaining enough to recommend.

Patton Oswalt was the first couch guest. He is in the upcoming film The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. The interview was great. Patton was friendly, charismatic and told some funny stories. He’s such a talented comedian. I never get tired of watching him. Here’s the interview:

Elizabeth Olsen was the second couch guest. She is in the new movie Oldboy. The interview was fine, but suffered from being too short and containing a dumb topic of conversation. None of this was Elizabeth’s fault; she was pleasant, good-humored and told an interesting story. The main problem here was someone’s ability at JKL to understand time management and a person’s ability to be their own individual. So, for example, if you know that your guest is only going to have five minutes, then don’t waste the first two minutes of it asking her to discuss her early childhood in the shadow of her sisters and the show Full House. Yeesh. Even worse, this bit of amateur producing prevented other more worthwhile conversation topics from having the time to fully form.

The 1975 was the musical guest. They were ok.

Enjoyable show. I give it:


– Woody
