See that land over there in the distance? It’s a place of love and oppurtunity. Some say it’s magical, others think it’s paradise. It has a lot of nicknames, but the locals call it by its official name… “New Jersey.”
I talked to UK-based singer Sam Smith for the #NewYorkTimes. He’s gonna be huge, and will be introduced to American audiences this weekend as the musical guest for @nbcSNL with host #LouisCK. The interview is online now, and will be in print on Satuday!
Well, last night I went to the first test show for the new “Tonight
Show” with Jimmy Fallon. It went great- it’s a lot like “Late Night,”
but with a new set & some new bits. The set looks amazing. Anyone who knows me is well aware that Fallon’s the reason why I do what I do in the first place, so it was cool to be there for his first show. “Late Night” even gave me my first writing break back in 2009! Sadly, tonight is also the last Jay Leno show and I’ll miss sending in jokes for Jay so much after he leaves. After all that, Leno’s leaving at Number 1 & I’m sure Fallon will fill his shoes nicely. I’m so proud & honored to have been at least a tiny part of both shows. Watch Leno’s farewell tonight on NBC, and Fallon’s takeover on 2/17. Jay Leno and Jimmy Fallon: two cool dudes.
