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. On Monday night’s installment of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (Boy that’s a mouthful), the duo attempted to “flip lips” — fairly self-explanatory, right? — in order for Fey to “interview herself.” Only what ended up devolving was a sing-a-long (man, Fallon really loves singing) to “Endless Love” with a lot of laughter and a bevy of lip licking. Fail!
Only we mean that fail as a good thing, natch. Because if there’s anything funnier than comedians saying/doing stuff that makes you haha, it’s when things go awry that the real magic happens. We know these two are both happily married to other people, but ugh: isn’t their chemistry just the best? Doesn’t it make you long for the days of their Weekend Update co-hosting on Saturday Night Live? With such impressive comedic timing and understanding with each other, we can’t help but want to see the duo work together all the time.
While that’s likely not to happen anytime soon (boo hiss boo!), there are still plenty of videos in their arsenal of funny to tide you over until the next time they share a screen together. We've compiled some of our favorite Jimmy and Tina moments together, below, to give you something to chuckle over at the end of this blah and otherwise bland Tuesday.
