Tonight Show Highlights
Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon:
There are reports that President Obama and his family may move to New York City after his term is over. Unfortunately, the city is so expensive he’s looking for another ex-president to be roommates with.
Chris Christie defended his stance against legalizing marijuana, saying that any tax revenue generated from pot sales would be “blood money.” Then business men in New Jersey were like, “We can’t have that sorta thing here in New Jersey. Now, if you don’t mind, wanna help me burry this duffle bag.”
The Cyclone rollercoaster at Coney Island got stuck during its first run of the season yesterday, causing several riders to climb back down on foot. It was so scary the guy operating the ride almost dropped his flask.
The comedy segment bit was “Popular Mathematics.” It was ok, but we’re going to skip it:
Helen Mirren was the first couch guest. She stars on Broadway in The Audience and in the upcoming film Woman in Gold. The interview was enjoyable. Helen was fun, spry and shared some amusing stories. Here were my favorite moments from the interview:
After a break Jimmy and Helen sucked on helium. It had enough entertaining moments to recommend. But, if you skip it, you’re still going to be able to sleep well tonight:
Oscar Isaac was the second couch guest. He is in the upcoming film Ex Machina. The interview was fine. Oscar was nice, easygoing and told some interesting stories. Here’s my favorite clip:
Wale was the musical guest. He was mediocre.
Good show. I give it:
