I was in the audience for last night’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
Now, I’ve been lucky enough to see a lot of shows live here in New York City. Live with Regis and Kelly, Millionaire, Late Show with David Letterman, Conan (back in the day), Silent Library. Heck, I’ve already been to Anderson Cooper’s new daytime talk show.
I’m kinda spoiled.
But Jimmy Fallon has played hardball with me. You see, I had tickets to Late Night in March but had to cancel last minute due to work commitments. When I called to let them know — and I did call — they thanked me profusely…and then placed me on a ‘no reservations list’ for two months.
Thanks, Jimmy. Thanks, Mr. Nice Guy.
But last night’s Late Night was easily the most fun I have ever had as part of a live audience. Jonah Hill killed in his interview. I have never been so surprised or laughed so hard. Plus, Jimmy featured Hashtags — who doesn’t love Hashtags? — and a new episode of the “Jersey Floor.” I even liked the musical guest Elbow. (Look them up; they’re really good.)
So, I forgive you, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, for your archaic cancelation policy.
You funnied the fume right out of me.
