Late Night Highlights

Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Late Night with Seth Meyers:

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day. That’s right, today is Saint Patrick’s Day, when we commemorate the time Saint Patrick drove all the alcoholics out of New Jersey and into Manhattan.

Last Friday a California woman, taking her driver’s test for the third time, caused a gas leak when she crashed into the DMV office. Even more amazing, this was during the written test.

Scientists in England published a study today showing that men who move their head and right leg while dancing appear more attractive to women. So, looks like you’re out of luck, white men.

The comedy segment bits were “Fred Talks,” “Seth’s Story” and “Famous Quote First Drafts.” I enjoyed all three, but want to highlight “Fred Talks.” This bit is something they do every night right after Seth sits down at this desk. It’s funny, feels improvised instead of scripted and is a smart way to showcase Fred’s comedic talents.

Anderson Cooper was the first couch guest. He is the host of Anderson Cooper 360. The interview was good. Anderson was friendly, charismatic and told some very amusing stories. I enjoyed learning more about him, but was disappointed with the discussion on current events. Anderson and Seth are both news junkies, so they easily could have spent more time on, and dug a little deeper into, the big stories in the news. Regardless, Anderson is cool enough that the interview is worth watching:

Alessandra Ambrosio and Behati Prinsloo were the second couch guests. They are Victoria’s Secret models. The interview was ok. Alessandra and Behati were pleasant, had surprisingly decent senses of humor and, combined, were able to tell at least one interesting story. Does this interview have any redeeming values that justify recommending it? Not really. It’s pretty much a segment made of fluff. Still, it’s possible someone reading this might get something more out of it, and who am I to stand in the way of subjective enlightenment?

Iggy Azalea was the musical guest. Her performance was…in so many ways…not my type.

Fine show. I give it:


– Woody
