Late Night Highlights

Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon:

Vice-President Joe Biden was happy to be back in the U.S. on Saturday after spending six days in Japan, China and South Korea. Course, no one had the heart to tell him it was only a P. F. Chang’s.

A man was locked in an airplane for several hours after he fell asleep during a flight and nobody woke him up when it landed. But other than that Biden had a great trip to Asia.

The World Cup is coming up next summer, and it was just announced on Friday that the U.S. Soccer team has a really tough schedule. They play against Germany, Ghana and Portugal. Americans were pretty upset; they were like, “There’s going to be soccer on TV again?”

Twitter is making news for recently appointing the first woman to the company’s board. Yup, there’s a woman in charge, which explains why tweets can now contain one hundred and forty million characters.

The comedy segment bits were “The 5 Days of Christmas Sweaters,” a replay of last year’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” with Mariah Carrey and “Late Night Stocking Stuffers”. None of them are worth wasting your time on. Well, the Mariah one is, but you should have already seen it 365 days ago. What? You didn’t. Ok, fine, here you go:

Amy Adams was the first couch guest. She is in two new films: Her and American Hustle. The interview was fine. Amy was friendly and had an amusing story. I know she’s a talented actress, but when she’s not performing she comes across as kinda dry in my opinion. I just can’t seem to get excited about her. On a positive note, this interview was better than the last time she was on Late Night, and I did enjoy this clip enough to recommend:

After the break they played a game of Catch Phrase. It was a lot of fun:

Oscar Isaac was the second couch guest. He stars in the movie Inside Llewyn Davis. The interview was good, but way too short. Oscar was cool, engaged and told an interesting story. I wish they had cut the Mariah Christmas video so that we could have spent more time with Oscar. Jimmy hardly scratched the surface with him. Here was my favorite part of the interview:

Jack Johnson was the musical guest. He played a Christmas song with the Roots. It was a nice performance. And since it’s the holiday season you may feel inclined to watch it:

Entertaining show. I give it:
