Talk show hosts have been big fans of making celebrities take on fun and silly challenges over the past few weeks. We’ve seen Kevin Hart and Josh Gad get coaxed into putting together a dance off, and Jimmy Fallon recently got two of the judges from NBC’s primetime hit The Voice to join him in a lip synch battle on The Tonight Show
The Tonight Show cleverly got some of the characters from Sesame Street to appear for some good, clean fun. To celebrate Sesame Street’s 45th Anniversary, on Thursday, The Tonight Show crew scoured the Internet to come up with the best tweets featuring the hashtag #WhenIWasAKi
Jimmy Fallon’s been on a roll with viral videos since he kicked off his tenure on The Tonight Show. On Tuesday night, Fallon took some time out of his evening to discuss the pros and cons of dating the recently single Britney Spears. You can check out his theories, here.
Twenty years ago, I’m not sure anyone would have believed that The Tonight Show would find just as much success with viral videos as it does in late night ratings traffic. However, NBC’s latest host, Jimmy Fallon, has certainly brought his signature humor and gameplay to The Tonight Show, and last night The Voice mentor Adam Levine lent his voice to Fallon’s latest game.
If there are any lingering questions concerning whether or not Jimmy Fallon is a good fit for The Tonight Show in this Internet Age, his recent wave of popular viral videos should put those questions to rest. On Wednesday, the late night program host sat down with Jared Leto, not to discuss his work with 30 Seconds to Mars, but to discuss the mysteries of the universe with the long-haired actor and musician.
Jimmy Fallon is known for getting up to some pretty strange shenanigans on The Tonight Show. He’s also known for his sketch comedy program “Ew!,” which occasionally pops up on The Tonight Show. This week, special guest Taylor Swift is expected to appear on the late night comedy program, and if the video above is any indication, an Ew! visit is in the cards.
Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young had a heartwarming reunion last night on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, OR DID THEY?!?
Jimmy Fallon's trip to Orlando continues to pay off, not only in its promotion of Universal Studios Orlando just in time for the summer season, but also to entertain us with goofy park shenanigans. Yesterday, it was a trip to the yet-to-be-opened Diagon Alley section of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter for a wand fitting with Higgins. Today, Jimmy Fallon has treated Kevin Hart to a roller coaster ride... one Hart seems reluctant to take.
Ricky Gervais paid a visit to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Naturally, words were exchanged. And not just the usual funny words one might expect from comedic-minded people like Ricky Gervais and Jimmy Fallon. The two engaged in an actual word game during Gervais' interview.
Jimmy Fallon has invited celebrities onto his late night talk show to dazzle us with their lip syncing abilities. The key to a good lip syncing show is for the "singer" to really go for it. There can be no half way when mouthing your way through a popular song. In that respect, the funny and charming Emma Stone was perfect for this bit. She leaves nothing out on the stage as she battles Jimmy.
Thanks again, Jimmy Fallon for making the internet just a little bit better with another great video. In this case, it's Brian Williams rapping Snoop Doggy Dogg's classic hit "Gin and Juice." The practice of editing together a bunch of clips to make a rap isn't exactly new. In fact, Fallon's been doing this with Brian Williams' news segments since his Late Night days.
There have been plenty of reactions to the initial announcement, with fans and other late night hosts alike being affected by the veteran host’s big news, but none has been more fitting than Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show tribute to the man, which came in the form of a “Top 10” list.
It's one thing to do a funny celebrity impersonation. It's another to do that impersonation to that celebrity's face. Jimmy Fallon is mastering that art on The Tonight Show, having previously engaged in a bit of impression-riffing with Jerry Seinfeld, and more recently showing off his Cosby impersonation to comedy legend Bill Cosby himself. As you can see in the clip above, Cosby is nonplussed.
You know what’s better than a perfectly executed late night sketch? One that goes sort of akimbo and ultimately fails in the most hilarious of manners. And all of that is only made better when the folks involved are Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon. The duo attempted to “flip lips” — fairly self-explanatory, right? — in order for Fey to interview herself, only what transpired was a botched sing-a-long with a bevy of lip licking. Fail!
The thing about lip-syncing is, from a spectator's perspective, it's pretty pointless unless the lip-syncer is willing to put everything they have into their performance. And it's really for that reason that "Lip Sync Battle" works so well for Jimmy Fallon. It worked well on Late Night when he did it with Joseph Gordon Levitt and Stephen Merchant,
