The Rock stopped by ‘The Tonight Show’ to promote his new Hercules movie coming out this Friday, and naturally they got into some sketch comedy. The Fungo Brothers isn’t my favorite sketch of all-time, but it’s cool to see celebrities be game to spoof themselves, even though The Rock has done that his entire career in the wrestling ring. Someone needs to write a strongly worded letter to YouTube telling them Dwayne Johnson doesn’t exist. He’s The Rock. Past, present, future. Also, I watched these videos out of context from the show, but why is The Rock pulling an FDR with a blanket over his legs at the beginning of the second video? Not a cool impression, Dwayne.
I think my new favorite thing is having music legends come on The Tonight Show and sing newer pop songs. Jimmy Fallon and Bruce Springsteen did it with ‘Whip My Hair’ and now he brought in the legendary trio of Crosby, Still & Nash for ‘Fancy’. If late night TV ever fails Jimmy Fallon, he could absolutely go on the road as a Neil Young impersonator. Uncanny.
P.S. David Crosby is still the craziest looking person in the world.
A few things here: Alec Baldwin is an extremely believable cop, and it takes Jimmy Fallon 20 seconds to break character. Enjoy.
Kevin Hart was on Jimmy Fallon this week, so it’s a fairly recent Throwback Thursday video, but it happened in the past, so deal with it. Apparently Kevin Hart is afraid of rollercoasters (real original) so Jimmy Fallon convinced him to go on one and he screamed and yada, yada, yada. To be honest I picked this video because Kevin Hart was on Raw this Monday and he was one of my favorite guest hosts because he sat on the sidelines, announced a match, did a little dance and left. He didn’t make the show about him like 98% of the other guest hosts do. Also, he’s been on the talk show scene all week and all he can talk about is how much fun he had on Raw and how much of an old school wrestling fan he is. Gentleman and a scholar.
Lloyd Christmas (still my favorite movie character name ever) and Harry Dunn stopped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night to finally drop the long anticipated trailer for “Dumb and Dumber To”. There’s really no use writing about the actual scenes in the trailer, because you have to watch it for yourself. Let’s just say I’ve never had more faith in a sequel than I have in this movie. It’s also remarkable how neither of them looked like they’ve aged a single minute in that trailer. The haircuts look the same, and let’s just say Lloyd took his shaving ketchup joke up a few notches in the opening scene in the trailer. Long live the goofballs.
P.S. This trailer gets our seal of approval.
Finally! Dumb and Dumber To trailer will debut Tuesday, June 10th on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon! Don’t miss it! P

Well this is the best news since sliced bread, and I LOVE sliced bread. Dumb and Dumber is one of the funniest movies of all time and is easily the most re-watchable comedy ever. I’ve seen it at least 100 times and find a new favorite scene/line each time. It’s also very cool that they’re releasing it on The Tonight Show. Instead of just a random release before some comedy movie this summer, The Tonight Show release gives it a big movie feel. Plus, anytime you can get Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels in a room together, magic is about to happen. I can’t wait for Tuesday, and I can’t wait for November 14th. Throw another shrimp on the Barbie!
Jimmy Fallon has so many good videos from his time on Late Night and the Tonight Show that I thought it’d be appropriate to start sharing some of the older ones. I’ve watched about one thousand musical sketches featuring Jimmy Fallon impersonating a legendary singer and he still blows my mind every time. Also, The Boss.
It’s no longer a contest: Jimmy Fallon owns the sketch portion of late night TV. I still prefer Conan in the monologue, but whether it was Late Night with Jimmy Fallon or The Tonight Show, Fallon consistently delivers funny and creative skits. Here are a few of our favorites.
The Evolution of Dad Dancing – Late Night
Kind of an under the radar skit back from Fallon’s Late Night days. I think I like this skit so much because this is 100% how I dance at the bar. I get a couple of drinks in me and I’m out on the dance floor makings things happen. I gotta say Jimmy Fallon absolutely nails all of these moves. I usually start off with the simple “clap when you want to” which immediately turns into the “clap and shake” which lasts the rest of the night. I know what you’re thinking and the answer is no, it is not very impressive, but it’s all I got.
Real People Fake Arms – Late Night
Real people, fake arms, is gold for two reasons: Jimmy Fallon and Steve Carell. I don’t think it is physically possible for Jimmy Fallon to keep a straight face during a skit, and you know what? I wouldn’t have it any other way. Carell, always professional, and Fallon always laughing. I bet by now you are probably screaming at the computer screen, “what about JUSTIN?!” Come on people, do I really need to point out how awesome JT can be in a comedy sketch? Does a dog need to be taught how to bury a bone? Does a bird need to be reminded how to fly? Does Bill Paxton need to prove he discovered the Titanic? No, the answer is no.
