I love the tonight show. Jimmy Fallon has taken over late night this past year, making trips to the city all the more exciting. My friends and I have been a part of his studio audience twice now since December. We have also been to Seth Meyers twice before that. Rockefeller Center feels like a home away from home, in a way.
Mit Romney was the first guest. Surprisingly, he wasn’t as boring as I expected him to be. they did a funny sketch where Mit was talking to himself in the mirror, worrying himself over the interview. They also threw a few cracks at his loosing the 2008 election, which I personally found hysterical.
Grace Helbig was there too. While I’m not a ginormous fan, my roommate is. She even got a wink from her as Grace exited the stage. I love it.
Jimmy killed it as always, his monologues slay me. The roots were talented as ever. Speaking of the roots, I have Quest Love’s drum sticks. Yup. The producer handed one to Em, Nols and I. If you look close enough, you can see his little afro on the handle!
It all ended when 50 Cent came out with his band, G Unit. My favorite line, “I do what the F*** I want to. I’m grown. I got my own couch.” Same 50, same.
I can’t help but dream of being a guest on that show. Promoting my book or even the movie version of my book. I dream big, but sometimes you have to. It doesn’t hurt that we know Seth Herzog, Jimmy’s opening comedian. He spent a good ten minutes talking to just us, and yes, we felt extremely special.
So here I am, sitting in front of my television watching the Tonight Show. I should really get back to it now, I’m waiting to see if we’re going to be featured on screen at all.
Wish us luck!
