Yesterday, I was in need of some laughs to get through the Monday blues, so I watched this clip of Kevin Spacey on “The Tonight Show,” doing a barbershop rendition of Jason Derulo’s “Talk Dirty.” Then I watched it again, and again, and pretty much couldn’t stop. Something about his dead-eyed expression paired with his commitment to nailing those harmonies with Jimmy Fallon makes me crack up. His interview with Jimmy is pretty funny, too. I just love his wacky sense of humor. I’d say I wish he did more comedy instead of all those dramas, but that would mean living without “House Of Cards.”
I’m sitting at my desk cry-laughing this morning thanks to, of all things, “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.” I haven’t watched the show in a zillion years, but I guess he does something called PumpCast News, where fake newscaster Tim Stack is streamed right into a gas station television monitor, so he can directly interact (read: fuck with) gas station customers.
But there is no way he could have ever imagined how wonderful and entertaining Will and Monifa Sims would be. The two show off their impressive karaoke skills and were brought onto “The Tonight Show” to sing with the show’s band. (Clip after the jump!)

Ladies! Has it really come to this? Mikey Day and Trevor Moore of “The Whitest Kids U Know” appeared on “The Tonight Show” and challenged each other to pick up a girl using only lines from Masterpiece Theatre mini-series “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” And sadly? It worked! I guess all a girl really wants is for a guy to talk about vajiggle-jaggle with her. We have really lowered the bar. [YouTube]
What makes famous women take off their underwear? Jay Leno. In a sketch on last night’s show, Ross Matthew asked celebs at the Oscars to contribute something to Jay’s gift bag. Jamie Foxx relinquished his sunglasses; Hayden Panettiere kissed a napkin as a contribution; Tori Spelling talked incessantly about her crotchless Spanx—which, way too much information. And then Heidi Klum made the entire video, offering, “You want my underwear?” She then shimmyed them off underneath her sparkly dress. A woman of her word. Clip above. [PopEater] Keep reading »
Sarah Palin may not think “Family Guy” is funny, but the former governor of Alaska tried to show off her funny bone with a stand-up set on last night’s “Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” Her potshots at the White House were lame, but she made a few good jabs at Alaska. I think we can all say that Palin killed! No, not really. I was just making a hunting joke. [NBC] Keep reading »
So sad. Ed McMahon passed away this morning at the Ronald Reagan/UCLA Medical Center at the age of 86. Our generation will always remember him for passing out ginormo Publisher’s Clearing House checks and for hosting “Star Search.” But to older folks, he’ll be remembered as Johnny Carson’s sidekick on the “Tonight Show,” thanks to his famous “Heeeeeeere”s Johnny” introduction. McMahon kept folks laughing for 30 years along with Johnny, and the hilarious chemistry they shared is now part of television history. Here’s a look back at some of McMahon’s funniest moments. Have a good chuckle, just like he’d want you to. Keep reading »
