So, this afternoon (May 14) I had the pleasure of attending a taping Late Night wiht Jimmy Fallon thanks to my old friend/Fallon music booker Jonathan Cohen (more on him later). Overall the show was all you would expect — celebrities, jokes and The Roots but what I didn’t expect was…
A) How young the entire staff was; and B) How genuinely happy everyone looked. I swear it didn’t even look like work. Oh to be so lucky one day. It just looked like pure fun. We even popped backstage after the show to meet musical guest Asher Roth (shout out to Phylicia Fant) and it was nothing but smiles and laughs.
Anywho, tonight’s guests are Saturday Night Live alum/Fallon’s old cohort Maya Rudolph, Dance Flick star Damon Wayans Jr. (yes, he’s one of them), The Office’s Mindy Kaling and Asher. I will post Asher and The Roots’ performance of “Be By Myself” once the NBC internet gods see fit to post it.
UPDATE: While NBC has yet to post Asher’s performance, I did find our “Shared Experience” video. Watch it below and see if you can see me. Here’s a hint: I am rocking a pink sweater (yeah, I am man enough to wear pink… when I am with the wife).
Vodpod videos no longer available.
UPDATE: Here’s the performance. Thanks, Mr. World Premiere.
