Late Night Highlights
Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Late Night with Seth Meyers:
President Obama has announced that four million people have signed up for Obamacare. Obama says he wants to hit seven million by the end of March…at which point he’ll sell it to Facebook for ten billion dollars.
The Arizona state legislature passed a law that made it legal for businesses to deny services to gay customers. Tucker Carlson told Fox News this week, “If I don’t want to bake you a cake for your gay wedding, that’s called tolerance. But when you try and force me to bake a cake for your gay wedding, and threaten me with prison if I don’t, that’s called fascism.” But I think the more important issue is: who is asking Tucker Carlson to bake all these wedding cakes?
A Florida woman was arrested for DUI after she failed a sobriety test and was caught driving nude from the waist down. Wait. They gave her a sobriety test? Pants. Pants are the sobriety test.
The comedy segment bit was “Fake or Florida.” There were hilarious parts, there were silly parts and there were awkward parts. Overall I enjoyed it, but it’s eight minutes long, and if you don’t have a lot of time, or are tired of game show skits, then I’d recommend watching the Robyn Doolittle interview instead.
Kelly Ripa was the first couch guest. She is the co-host of Live! with Kelly and Michael. The interview was good, but way too short. Kelly was friendly and energetic, and their conversion was fun, but it also felt rushed. I wish they could have given her more time. Here’s the interview:
Brad Paisley was the second couch guest. He is a country music singer. The interview was also good and also way too short. Brad was kind and soft-spoken. Honestly, I kinda think he was just there so Seth could tell stories involving the two of them. That was ok with me, though, as the stories were pretty amusing. Here’s the interview:
Robyn Doolittle was the third couch guest. She is a journalist and is the author of the new book Crazy Town: The Rob Ford Story. The interview was great. Robyn was a delight, which shouldn’t be too surprising considering she’s Canadian. It was so refreshing for an author to be on the show and talk about people, places and things not related to the entertainment industry. Plus, Seth had read the book, which allowed him to have a conversation with Robyn without relying on a note card. Here’s the interview:
Brad returned as the musical guest. He gave a nice performance.
Entertaining show. I give it:
