You know what, guys? I've always been a fan of Jimmy Fallon. Okay, so maybe (definitely) when he was on SNL he may have broken (uh, definitely broken) character a little often, but I think that is what makes him such a great late night talk show host. He's being himself so he has every right to laugh at all his own jokes, right?! Here are three reasons I like Late Night With Jimmy Fallon:
1. A.D. Miles is Fallon's head writer. Miles also created and starred in one of our most-beloved series, Horrible People. Late Night is Miles' first job as head writer and he's doing a great! Bobby Tisdale (who plays "Smacky Guest" in Horrible People, and is also just someone I love) used to be a writer for the Late Night, as well.
2. Fallon has great musical guests. Wu-Tang Clan just performed a new song from the soundtrack of RZA's new movie. Do you know how hard it is to get all those guys into one room these days?
Also, members of another hip hop group I love, Odd Future's Tyler, The Creator and Hodgy Beats, made their first television appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.
3. Seth Herzog is the warm-up comic for the show. Not only can you see Seth just about everywhere, from VH1's Best Week Ever to David Wain's The Ten, but he's also an amazing stand-up.
