Like a savvy statesman, Cory Booker punctuates the first chunk of a Jimmy Fallon interview with a funny tale which endears him to The Tonight Show crowd. We won’t give away the details, but let’s just say being elected to Congress doesn’t always stop one’s Mom from fussing over them. Things turn serious, however, when […]
Sometimes the joke is all about the setup. While Jimmy Fallon doesn’t exactly take it easy on President Trump or any of 45’s appointees/ex-appointees (just listen to the crack about Omarosa and Facebook 45 seconds into today’s clip), the comic is a little gentler than most on late night when it comes to politics. The […]
Note: Yes, the original headline of this story mistakenly credited Jimmy Kimmel, not Jimmy Fallon, with the clip described and embedded below. Lampoon us as thee will, but we absolutely did not confuse the two men, who each offer unique brands of satire. Just a miscommunication at the office. Now, back to your regularly-scheduled obtuse […]
Maybe there’s a need for a Space Force after all. Jimmy Fallon thinks something is amiss after studying 51 Areas of Vice President Mike Pence’s overly-sculpted mug. The late-night comic plays footage of Pence relaying “greetings” to a crew of Earthlings preparing to enact 45’s Space Force initiative. Come to think of it, Pence’s too-perfect-from-the-chest-up […]
It is possible to get a Trump rally crowd to cheer for many strange things. Cheers for a border wall! Cheers for the death of CNN! Cheers for tax cuts, even when others are getting way bigger cuts than they are! But can you get them to cheer for a bona-fide Hollywood liberal? No way, […]
On Thursday #EndorseThis covered the laser-beam focused satire of Samantha Bee. But good comedy comes in many flavors. Jimmy Fallon’s late-night monologues are less edgy but usually include something for everyone. Jimmy doesn’t disappoint in today’s clip, leading off with a sharp bit about Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. Mueller’s current daily task is combing through […]
Filmmaker Stanley Kubrick had a saying, “Tell a man in his office an H-bomb has been launched and it’s a thriller, tell him at home and it’s a drama, tell him in the bathroom and it’s a comedy.” It appears that comedian par excellence Conan O’ Brien has not been at all aware of the […]
Americans know what to expect from late-night comic Jimmy Fallon. The reluctant political satirist usually works into his monologue some type of light-hearted Trump impression and a meaningless-but-funny dada sketch or two. Lest anyone be disappointed, Fallon obliges both trademarks here, at the 60-second and 3:10 marks respectively. But wait. Turning political for a change, […]
Late-night comic Jimmy Fallon has taken heat for not being hard enough on President Trump. To wit, Fallon is the lone network talk host to have welcomed the Orange One to his show, and he even touched that horrible hair! Yet it is Fallon who – in his understated way – is throwing some of […]
No serious candidate relies on slogans and copy written by one person. In the case of 2016, it’s ironic that Hillary Clinton was criticized for having teams of writers review short phrases. At least Clinton’s team didn’t steal Ronald Reagan’s idea and spin the plagiarized words into a racial dog-whistle. Which brings us to today’s […]
Late on Martin Luther King Day, Jimmy Fallon offered a brilliant satirical version of “Fire and Rain” by James Taylor (dubbed “Fire and Fury,” after a certain bestselling book). Gently poking fun at the President, in a pretty darn good Americana tenor, the comedian touches on the Bannon-Trump feud and reminds the audience just how […]
“You’d better watch out You’d better not cry You’d better not lie to the FBI Robert Mueller’s comin’ to town!” Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon — who once ruffled whatever that is on top of Trump’s head — made a valiant bid last night to catch up politically with woke competitors like Kimmel and Colbert. […]
It’s called KickedOut — tagline: “The only jobs website made for people who’ve been fired from the Trump administration” — and it eliminates from your résumé any indication that you’ve ever worked in Trump’s White House.
In the Saturday Night Live cold open, Trump (Baldwin) complains about the dictator of North Korea. “He’s a war monger, he’s quick to anger, he’s a huge narcissist, he’s got a stupid little haircut, why would they let a man like that run an entire country?” Then he gets down to real business, the simmering feud between the spectral, demonic Bannon (Mikey Day) and Jared Kushner, played with aplomb by guest host Jimmy Fallon in a blazer and flak jacket.
“Jared, you’re such an inspiration,” the president gushes. “You showed everybody that if you were born rich and marry my daughter, you can do whatever you want.”
Golden Globes host Jimmy Fallon, widely criticized for his soft treatment of Trump on the Tonight Show last year, compared the president-elect to one of the most hated Game of Thrones characters and said the inauguration committee had even failed to book Florence Foster Jenkins, “the worst opera singer in the world.” But if Fallon was trying hard, Best Supporting TV Actor winner Hugh Laurie simply tossed off a few stylish, succinct, and biting lines to sum up the incoming administration.
On Thursday night’s episode of “The Tonight Show,” host Jimmy Fallon and the GOP presidential nominee traded jabs on Trump’s hair and his childhood home, which is now on the market. But when it came down to the serious stuff, Trump couldn’t even seem to answer a standard job interview question.
Aziz Ansari, best known for his role on “Parks and Recreation” and as the creator of “Master of None” is relishing the election drama. Ansari stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to discuss the “feuds” taking place this election cycle, including the very recent public feud between Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and the Khan family.
