Is Jimmy Fallon the Next Weird Al?
Jimmy Fallon returns to his roots during the Just For Laughs Gala held at Theatre St. Denis in Montreal.Â Â
âIâm so glad to be here,â he says. â1996 was the last time I was here as a new face, and now here I am hosting a gala. I donât even believe it. Iâm very honored to be here tonight.â
He jokes, âMy name is Jimmy Fallon, or as they say in French, George Clooney. Itâs great to be in Canada, or as my president calls it, Upper Montana. Itâs great to be in the stripper district.â
He trots out his guitar to perform a few comedy medleys including You Spit When You Talk, an impromptu number about a woman in the audience and hippie-fantastic Car Wash For Peace.Â Â
Get this â when I bought a few tees that said âFutur Humoriste,â it was two for $10, so I pick up another for the fam without reading it because Iâm in a hurry. I recognize the âcouche avec moiâ â turns out, it says âShe sleeps with me.â Good thing I didnât buy more, right?
The funniest joke I heard the whole time was a comedian calling out Quebecâs decision to separate from Canada by speaking French. âThatâs like Scotland and England hating each other so much that Scots begin speaking Russian. Come on! That would never happen.âÂ Â Â
