Late Night Highlights

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

Today the Northeast is being hit with another winter storm. We’re being told to expect up to six voicemails from my mom.

The “50 Shades of Grey” movie comes out this week. According to online ticket seller Fandango, it beat the record for fasting selling R-rated movie in history. Well, first it tied the record, then it beat it.

A woman in Florida gave birth to a baby weighing in at 14.1 pounds. So I guess the question is: a baby what?

The comedy segment bits were “Fred Talks,” “Seth’s Story,” “New Yorkers Read Fifty Shades of Grey Out Loud” and “Venn Diagrams.” “Seth’s Story” wasn’t very entertaining, but I liked the other three enough to recommend watching. Give them a shot; it’s like a small buffet of comedy:

Bobby Moynihan was the first couch guest. He is a cast member on Saturday Night Live. The interview was ok. Booby was chummy, nervous and shared some interesting tidbits. Seth and Bobby pretty much spent the entire interview discussing SNL and some of the characters Bobby has played on the show. That’s cool; I have no problem with that. I haven’t watched SNL in over a decade, though, so it was difficult for me to relate or care about the topics of their conversation. If Seth had shown clips of Bobby as the character they were in the process of talking about, then I might have enjoyed the segment more.

Eugene Levy and Daniel Levy were the second couch guests. They co-star on the new show Schitt’s Creek. The interview was good. They were caring, energetic and told some amusing stories. Even fathers and sons, however, are not immune from falling into the annoying trap of talking over each other in hopes of getting something out faster and funnier. Here’s the interview:

The Bots was the musical guest. I love guitarist/drummer duos. It’s stripped-down raw energy:

Fine show. I give it:
