So I’m sitting up late at night on a Wednesday trying to kill time while my first attempt at duck confit to finish. I figured I’d check out Jimmy Fallon’s take on Late Night, and…well, ugh.
Yeah, he’s still kinda wet behind the ears when it comes to this talk show gig, but it’s pretty telling that the majority of the audience isn’t laughing. I mean, he just spent 10 minutes on this too-long bit that involved feeding 300 lbs of baked beans into the “volcano under the stairs.” I would have felt bad for him if I didn’t already have trouble laughing at Fallon from his SNL days. The timing was off, the gags were cheap, and the audience seemed to be waiting as long as I was for the sketch to end.
Dang, and I thought Carson Daly was lame.
One thought on “Too Late Night”
He’s definitely one of those guys who is “at times” funny, but most of the time he’s not. He’s akward and his timing is crappy and some of it just plain doesn’t make sense. I’ll definitely agree with you on this one. I will say though he’s lined up some good musical talent for the show in the couple of shows I’ve run across. p.s. SNL has sucked for years, and still sucks.
