Jimmy and Justin’s Sketch is IN SYNC

What do you call a “Throwback Thursday” from 1993 at a campsite with a (“future,” in quotes) pop superstar, a late night talk show host, a special guest and a sketch comedy aficionado?

Words cannot describe this bromance for the ages. But this popular Tonight Show sketch tries its best.

There’s something really great about sleepaway camp in the summertime when you’re around twelve years old…with a beard. And if you have some spare time, think of a favorite childhood memory and then recall the particular clothing style, lingo and musical hits.

Then write call email text tweet at Jimmy Fallon, Justin Timberlake, Billy Crystal and Keegan-Michael Key.

Don’t worry if you tweet late at night because, odds are, they’ll be awake.

Seinfeld’s Comedy is Never in the Gutter (Because of Practice)

What’s the difference between the 20th century and the 21st century?

One of the distinctions has been the significant bump in protection. But what kind of protection?

Let’s ask the brilliantly astute Jerry Seinfeld on this “Throwback Thursday” to re-discover a form of parenthood through an unforgiving style of bowling from the past. Plus, Jerry Seinfeld delivers a 100% battery life-rated synopsis of humans and their real relationships with their smartphones.

It’s something great when you can laugh at a joke and react with the expression, “no joke.” The notion of truth in comedy (book title by Charna Halpern) is expertly proven by Jerry Seinfeld in the video clip above, particularly regarding his supreme punchline for the smartphone battery life.

I bet you’re wondering where your charger is right now…

The legendary stand-up comic has a reputation for talking about nothing; turns out he knows a lot about everything.

And that’s the truth.

Mr. Fallon’s Surprise Lesson Plan

A good teacher changes countless people’s lives for the better.

Fact.

Yesterday’s news was dominated by the surprise firing of FBI Director James Comey. However, May 9th was Teacher’s Day. Much like mother’s and father’s day, this occasion should be an everyday celebration. And to express his appreciation for educators, Jimmy Fallon did something special for the teachers who were in his Tonight Show audience last night.

Late Night Hosting Grade: A

Jimmy shows great interest in this subject and has a way of winning over his classmates audience members with his positive demeanor and entertaining sketches akin to hijinks of a class clown. He also has a comedic sidekick by the name of Steve Higgins.

May the 4th Episode Always Be With Us

Today is May 4th. Hmmm, that seems like a special day for fans of a certain science-fiction, quintessential good v. evil saga…

Ah, yes! May the 4th Be With You!

This incredibly clever take on a specific month and day of the year is a wonderful annual reminder of the boundless creativity of movie fans. The dedication to celebrate a beloved (to put it mildly) multi-faceted universe that debuted way back in 1977 with Episode IV is impressive and inspiring. Star Wars movies (excluding Episodes I-III), for instance, are as powerful a cultural force as, well, the force. The characters and worlds in a galaxy far, far away combine for a (surreal in so many senses) cultural phenomenon.

And the editing team at The Tonight Show took May the 4th Be With You to an entirely new level of awesomeness.

Funny cinematic mixtape that is.
