  1. This has to get one of my favorite bits to watch along with the "Eww" bit ????? I'm crying it was so funny…"Wanna Make Whoopie" ?????

  2. Body language. She's trying so hard to get closer to Jon and he just seems to be trying to move further away. Lollol

  3. How did they film this? Did they take a break for hair/costume or was this filmed a later day? How did they do that live?

  4. This is the funniest thing I've ever seen on the Tonight Show! It was so good all the way through. Chuck Yerger and the mariachi night lines had me busting out laughing!

  5. So…I’m a teacher. And I’ve started Madlb Mondays to start the week with some laughs for my students because of Jimmy's Madlib Theater (I’d done these when I was younger but these segments were the inspiration). My students celebrate when they know it’s coming and get upset when we don’t do it or forget. They love it.
