For me it’s really hard to choose between late night television shows, as I think they are all equal parts hilarious. Leno was always hilarious with his stand-up bit, and who could hate on the Jaywalking bits when he would ask random people on the street questions about US history? Letterman and Fallon are always pretty funny – although the two have very different styles of comedy – and then there’s Jimmy Kimmel, who I still can’t believe looks the way he does after his Man Show days. Last but not least we have Mr. Conan O’Brien – maybe the best of the entire bunch – so you can see how tough it is to really decide on watching just one of them. Regardless, since it is officially Throwback Thursday here at SQ, we decided it would be pretty cool to take a look back – way back to 1979 – and see what some of these gentlemen looked like more than 30 years ago. Great pictures below!
In case you missed The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night, we’re here to bring you up to speed with possibly the funniest thing Brian Williams has ever done on television (okay technically this is just an epic montage, but you know what I mean). I have no idea how long this video took to compile – months? – but the end result, Brian Williams rapping the fabled “Gin and Juice”, is just simply awesomeness wrapped up into a 71 second funny video. Yes, he’s been great on his 30 Rock cameo appearances, but this Gin and Juice rap video now takes the cake – don’t pass this one up!
Jimmy Fallon is all over the entertainment news headlines these days after the Tonight Show transition has become official. For those of you living under a rock, Jimmy Fallon will be taking over the Tonight Show reigns in about one year, in Spring 2014. Anyone else besides me think Conan O’Brien is a little irked at all of this? And how hilarious would it be if Jay Leno decides he wants to come out of retirement again to play host again? I’ve been a fan of all three gentlemen, although if I had to go with one it would probably be Conan. The attached video is a classic from last summer with Jimmy Fallon as The Doors sing the old school Reading Rainbow theme music.
