Tonight Show Highlights

Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon:

President Obama is facing repeated calls for his impeachment because of the immigration crisis at the border. But yesterday House Speaker John Baehner said that, in fact, Republicans have no plans to impeach the president. They were like, “We’re too busy trying to figure out how to impeach Hillary.”

This week Chris Christie attended a GOP fundraiser with Donald Trump at the Trump National Gold Club in New Jersey. When asked what his handicap is, Christie said, “Stairs.”

A new study found that women have become slight smarter than men over the last one hundred years because they are able to remember more things, all of which they’ll bring up in an argument about something entirely different.

The comedy segment bit was “Celebrity Netflix Queues.” It was ok, but we’re gonna skip it.

Heidi Klum was the first couch guest. She is a judge on the show America’s Got Talent. The interview was good. Heidi was personable, outgoing and shared some amusing stories. I especially enjoyed her adventure of not having water at the house they’re renting in NYC. It was such an unexpected tale from any guest, but especially a supermodel. The one thing I didn’t like, however, was her constant need to turn her head to look at the studio audience while talking to Jimmy. Maybe she wanted to make sure the audience felt included in the conversation, but from my angle it was just annoying and distracting. Here’s the interview:

Mike Birbiglia was the second couch guest. He’s a comedian currently on a stand-up tour. The interview was fine. Mike was charismatic and very funny, but his stories, while humorous, were clearly material from his stand-up. Sometimes I don’t mind when guests spend their entire segment doing that, but Mike’s talent is being able to share intimate slices of himself in creatively comedic ways, so I wish he had done that instead. Still, the interview is worth watching, especially the opening two minutes, which were unscripted and hilarious:

Temples was the musical guest. They did a nice job.

Entertaining show. I give it:
