Their mission was to slip nonsensical statements into interviews and press conferences. And these top-class golfers were “sweet as toffee, hot as coffee” at completing the “Drop It In” challenge set by “The Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon. Tiger Woods, Justin Rose, Rory McIlroy, Adam Scott, Jason Day, Brooks Koepka, Henrik Stenson, Webb Simpson, Tommy Fleetwood and Francesco Molinari were all in on the gag. See them “swing it and ding it” in the clip above.
Comedian Jimmy Fallon and President Donald Trump apparently agree on something: Former Congressman Beto O’Rourke’s hand gestures were off the charts when he announced Thursday that he’s running for the Democratic presidential nomination. So Fallon pumped up the gestures in his revved-up O’Rourke spoof on “The Tonight Show,” gushing and gulping: “I love America, I love democracy, I love air!” “I’m excited. That’s it. I’m just excited,” says a shirt-sleeved, excruciatingly likable Fallon/O’Rourke in his message next to his calm, always-smiling wife, Amy Hoover Sanders, played by “Tonight Show” staffer Julie Harrison-Harney. In the clip provided exclusively to HuffPost, he describes himself as if a “compassionate head nod turned into a person” — but with lots of verve, like “if your friend’s...
The former “Tonight Show” host took the stage under the pretense that current host Jimmy Fallon ran into him, “the angry guy” on the street, and brought him on the show to rant. If you were waiting to hear jokes about hemorrhoids, iPhones and medical marijuana, your shtick has come in.
“Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon landed a 1-2 punch on President Donald Trump on Friday in his “Thank You Notes” segment. Fallon’s weekly thank you notes generally take a gentle approach to humor. But this time the first two notes took sharp swipes at Trump, one related to his hair and the other about his signature. Check out the video up top.
One of Jimmy Fallon’s favorite stories is about actor Jack Whitehall’s role in the movie “Frozen,” the host of “The Tonight Show” said. Whitehall had one line in the animated movie, but when the film was released his moment of glory had been cut. On Friday, Fallon took action to rectify the situation, enlisting the aid of the Broadway production of “Frozen.” Check out the video above to see what went down.
But they didn’t merely dress up in 1980s garb to play a-ha’s hit song; they got animated, just like the black-and-white cartoon that drove the music video back in the day. Too bad Fallon and the lads didn’t recreate the chase scene, but still cool nonetheless. Watch the performance above and the original music video below.
Tina Fey appeared on the show’s fifth-anniversary celebration episode, but she carried some (faux) resentment toward the host. “You’re a terrible person,” she whispered to Fallon, her former “Saturday Night Live” colleague, as they sat down for their chat. The two managed to put aside the awkwardness for their on-camera interview ― until Fallon introduced a clip of Fey in the upcoming Netflix movie “Wine Country.” Then the gloves came off, as Fey accused Fallon of “popping pills” and hinted at other problems. Watch above, and don’t be surprised to see a ticked-off Ben Stiller in a panda suit.
“Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon teamed up with singer John Legend on Friday to take karaoke to the next level. Using video shot the night before of “random people doing karaoke,” they lip synced to Legend’s mega-hit “All of Me.” “This is 100 percent real,” Fallon said. “Talent,” Legend said. “There’s going to be a lot of talent.” Check out the video above for the hilarious results.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) announced his 2020 presidential run on Tuesday and “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon already has some campaign slogan suggestions for the candidate’s second bid. The late-night host brought back his Sanders impression on Tuesday night, joking that he was “yelling for president of the United States.” “The fact is, we need to get rid of Donald Trump,” Fallon’s Sanders says. “That’s why I am SPEAKING IN ALL CAPS. We need change and that’s why I’m asking you to elect me, the guy who did this three years ago and lost.” Fallon debuted his Sanders impression back in 2016, when the Vermont senator was campaigning for the Democratic nomination against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. After airing some grievances about Amazon’s Alexa and arguing that he’s more ...
When Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry headed to the NBA All-Star Game in Charlotte, North Carolina, last weekend, he had more on his mind than shooting baskets from beyond the 3-point line. He was also on a secret mission for Jimmy Fallon – namely, insert three special phrases into his media interviews. The “Tonight Show” host wanted to hear Curry say “Energizer Bunny,” “flippin’ pancakes” and “wham bam can of ham.” Check out the video above to see if it was mission accomplished for Curry.
Model Kendall Jenner might make some tough dietary choices in her normal day, but deciding whether to chomp into a Croc clog probably isn’t one of them. That changed on “The Tonight Show” Thursday when the reality show star and host Jimmy Fallon matched palates in a game of “Food or Not Food.” Patterned after a Japanese game show, the two guessed which random objects were genuine and which were actually food. The moment of truth came when they had to bite into each one they chose. Among the other delicacies that Jenner sampled were a Rubik’s Cube and a Mr. Potato Head toy. Find out above if any provided actual sustenance.
Comedian and actor Adam Sandler stopped by “The Tonight Show” on Monday to help his fellow “Saturday Night Live” alum Jimmy Fallon celebrate his fifth anniversary as host of the talk show. The conversation focused on “SNL” memories, including the time Sandler discovered Chris Farley crying as he was listening to music from KC and the Sunshine Band. The big surprise came when Sandler talked about learning to play the guitar as a youngster. His father taught him to play on an acoustic guitar, he said, but what he really had his eye on was a Stratocaster electric guitar. Sandler’s father said he would buy him the guitar if he learned how to play the Spanish classical song “Malagueña” by Cuban composer Ernesto Lecuona perfectly. Check out the video above to see how he did.
