Late Night Highlights
Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Late Night with Seth Meyers:
A little scary news, according to a new report from BP, the Earth will run out of oil in fifty-three years. Luckily though, thanks to BP, the ocean will still have plenty.
A British man is being fined 150 pounds for stealing a box of diapers. The man was able to steal the diapers because they were being guarded by a Brazilian goalie.
Robin Thicke’s new album “Paula” only sold 530 copies during its first week. Wow, he has fallen on some hard times if he can only afford to buy 530 copies.
A new report shows that CNN is the most trustworthy news source, reporting the truth 83% of the time. That same report shows that statements made on Fox News are only completely factual 8% of the time, and that 8% is every time they say, “This is Fox News.”
The comedy segment bits were “Seth’s Story,” “Instagram Filters” and “Forced Friendship.” All three were funny, but “Seth’s Story” was easily the best. If you only watch two clips today, these are them:
Taye Diggs was the first couch guest. He stars on the show Murder in the First. The interview was fine. Taye was easygoing, self-effacing and shared some amusing tidbits. Seth, using comedy to hide the disappointing result from the World Cup semi-finals, was hilarious, and I liked that Taye was able to laugh at himself and even play along. Overall, the conversation topics during this interview weren’t all the fascinating, but the second-half is at least worth checking out:
Andy Serkis was the second couch guest. He is in the new film Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. The interview was very good. Andy was friendly, enthusiastic and shared some interesting stories. He was a pretty pleasant guy. I’m really glad Late Night had him on; he plays an incredibly unique role in films and deserves some time in the spot light. I only wish the interview could have longer. Here’s the entire segment minus the clip from the film:
Neon Trees was the musical guest. They gave a nice performance.
Great show. I give it:
