This may sound hard to believe, but back when Conan O'Brien arrived in Los Angeles as a starry-eyed (and possibly starving) television writer about three decades ago, gigs weren't just raining from the sky. The future late-night host had to take on some strange bits to make ends meet, including popping up in this NAMM (that's National Association of Music Merchants, in case you're not hip to esoteric professional groups) training video as the "opinionated type of customer."
When 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon conscripted guest Ricky Gervais into playing a round of Word Sneak, which requires players to "sneak" offbeat words into everyday conversations without laughing so hard their guts bust, Gervais managed to quite effortlessly insert his first word without too much trouble. Things went downhill from there, quite frankly, and never really recovered.
Will Ferrell is no stranger to rivalries, but although the star might be used to coming to blows with John C. Reilly on the big screen (remember 'Step Brothers' and 'Talladega Nights'? yeah, ya do), it seems like he's taking his act to the small screen with a new nemesis. On last night's 'Tonight Show,' a seriously revved up Ferrell hit host Jimmy Fallon's stage alongside Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, who just so happens to look startlingly like Ferrell.
Here's something you're not going to see in the 'Game of Thrones' books nor in episodes of the HBO series based on author George R.R. Martin's beloved series: computer technology. Here's something you're not going to see in George R.R. Martin's office: computer technology.
Seth Meyers' 'Late Night' just recently unveiled its Second Chance Theatre, an attempt to let former 'SNL' performers have a venue to show off beloved sketches that never made it to the air on the venerable comedy show. Meyers, however, is not the only former 'SNL' head writer to recycle old material -- Tina Fey did it, too!
Do you like word association? No, wait, don't answer that, because there's simply no way you like word association as much as unexpected 'Tonight Show' star "Mets Bucket Hat Guy," who hit Jimmy Fallon's show last night for an association challenge that may actually leave your head spinning. It's both totally exhausting and weirdly exhilarating.
'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon has been farming out plenty of his gags lately, asking his audience to send in various funny bits as they fit certain themes. Last night, he shared a batch of loyal fan-submitted screengrabs from both the internet and television -- a selection of some strange pictures, mismatched text, and a Captcha so bizarre that its hidden message popped up (tee hee) throughout the rest of the segment.
Funny lady Amy Schumer has never had a problem speaking her mind in just about every situation imaginable -- from social interactions to her own work -- so it's not particularly surprising that she brought that same level of honesty to a rousing game of "Truth or Truth" on 'The Tonight Show' last night.
Although it's understandable to assume that hardcore football fans aren't the greatest dancers in the world -- they value other athletic skills, after all -- it seems that hypothesis might not be exactly correct. Well, unless 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon explicitly instructed his 'Questions and Danswers' minion Arthur to only find awesome dancers for the latest entry of the segment, aimed at targeting NFL fans and chatting them up about what their teams need to grab in the draft. You know, while dancing.
The Queen of All Media had to start somewhere, so it seems particularly sweet that Oprah Winfrey decided to share her first audition tape with her millions (billions?) of fans as a bit of both inspiration and big laughs. She was so serious! She was so interested in spelling things! She was so ... demonically possessed?
