Late Night Highlights

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

This weekend the New York Times came out in favor of marijuana legalization. Apparently, someone told them that marijuana users are really into buying papers.

Supporters of former Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez have a released a new font in the style of his handwriting. Although, I’m surprised he wrote anything by hand, since he was so used to dictating.

A new device called the “SpinChill” promises to take beer from room temperature to ice cold in under a minute by spinning the bottle. Which, coincidently, is also how I turned Shelly McManus ice cold at a seventh-grade party.

A robber at a gas station in Houston was stopped when the clerk on duty happened to be a champion MMA fighter. So, crime doesn’t pay, and, apparently, neither does being an MMA champion.

The comedy segment bits were “Seth’s Story,” “New Game of Thrones Characters” and “Venn Diagrams.” They were all decent, but I’d say “Venn Diagrams” was the decentist:

Carson Daly was the first couch guest. He hosts Last Call with Carson Daly and The Voice, and is also a Today correspondent. The interview was fine. Carson was sincere, reverent and shared some interesting tidbits. I wish he and Seth had spent more time discussing Carson’s personal life and Last Call, and less time about The Voice and TRL, but I understand that the latter subjects will always be more popular than the former.  Regardless, Carson seems to be a hardworking guy who is truly grateful for the opportunities that he has. Here’s the interview:

Penn Jillette and Raymond Teller were the second couch guests. They are magicians whose show Penn & Teller: Fool Us is set to broadcast in the US. The interview was good. Penn and Teller have been performing for so long that making this interview entertaining was a piece of cake for them. After learning about Fool US, which was interesting, I liked that Seth had them talk for a few minutes about their history with the Late Night franchise. They were kind enough to end the segment with a cool card trick as well. Here’s the interview:

Christina Perri was the musical guest. She gave a nice performance.

Amusing show. I give it:
