I’m sure it will come as no surprise to you that I love funny people that are nice. I think it takes a lot more creativity to make people laugh without being snarky. Jimmy Fallon, Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, Ellen DeGeneres, Aziz Ansari and Louis C.K. are some of my favourite comedians for that reason. Anyone that has both musical talent and makes people laugh has my attention any day, Jimmy Fallon and Amy Poehler top my list. Did you ever see Amy Poehler rap on SNL when she was 9 months pregnant?! Amazing.
If I can recommend one way to start making your day shine a little brighter, start recording The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Seriously, go do it now and then come back. Did you do it? I’m not kidding, it makes me a happier person. I LOVE watching this show before I go to bed, no matter what my day is like it always ends it with a laugh.
There are a lot of clips from this show that are amazing, these are my favourites. He also does a hilarious segment with Brian Williams rapping, I made a playlist on my Youtube channel if you want to watch those, consider this your language warning. But it is hysterical.
This first video is the most recently popular clip showing a lip sync battle with Emma Stone. She is hilarious. I’ve seen a couple of these done on the show before and hers has been the best.
This next one with Billy Joel, my kids and I have listened to a million times. They harmonize The Lion Sleeps Tonight and it is one of my all-time favourite songs to sing to the kids before bed. You’ll never want to listen to another version of the song again.
If you are like me and a product of the Footloose era then you’ll love this too. Kudos to Kevin Bacon for playing along and making this so awesome!
Which one is your favourite? Have you seen others that you would add? What comedians did I forget?
