Heidi Klum showed Jimmy Fallon how she rolls on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Wednesday, when the guests were supermodel Heidi Klum of America’s Got Talent and Project Runway, Mike Birbiglia and musical guests Temples. Not a bad Hump Day line-up of guests. This week has been a pretty good one for episodes of the Tonight Show and tonight looks like it will be the third night in a row of awesome viewing.
Heidi Klum was stunning, as usual. They talked about different awards each had been nominated for. Heidi mentioned last year, when she and Tim Gunn were nominated for Project Runway. Fallon did an impersonation of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Heidi called herself “the Kluminator.”
Heidi tells Jimmy that she likes to take her kids to Hollywood shows like Aladdin and water parks. She also told Fallon that she was “not a good flyer. When it gets really bumpy, I get really scared.”
Jimmy asks her about America’s Got Talent. Klum says “It’s a fun thing. Last week, there was guy who tried to eat a cactus.” Jimmy had a clip of one guy who was on America’s Got Talent who broke baseball bats over his head and ran into a huge block of ice.
In an acrobatic mood, apparently, they stood up, grabbed each other’s ankles and rolled on a gymnastic mat head over heels. Then, Heidi and Jimmy did what she called “a German roll.” Facing each other and holding on as if they were embracing, Heidi Klum showed Jimmy Fallon how she rolls on the Tonight Show.
Back from a commercial break, Mike Birbiglia was Fallon’s second guest. He was promoting his DVD, “My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend.” After a minute or so, he left the stage, came back on, yelling about water that was spilled on the chair he had just been sitting in and asking Fallon why he made his guests sit on chairs that had water spilled on them. Of course, he was the one who had spilled the water in the first place. So, he laid down on the couch for a few seconds.
He sat back in the chair, then, and told Jimmy about living in New York and taking the subway. He mentioned a bus driver he met who, when asked about the subway, said “I know nothing about the subway.” Birbiglia riffed on that, wondering how a person could honestly say “I know nothing about the subway.’
Mike talked about a lady he saw who got on the bus. He said “She was not just ‘bus pretty.'” He added “I full-on stared at the lady. I think there’s an etiquette to it,” he did not seem concerned about following any etiquette, though. But he mentioned another creepy guy, who was creepier, with a pencil-thin mustache and glasses for the 80s.
“Is the moral of the story that you want credit for not being creepy?” he says his wife asked him.
“Yeah,” was his response.
“You do get credit — I married you,” she answered back.
Mike Birbiglia likes to tell humorous stories about his real-life experiences. They probably do not sound as humorous when someone else is writing about them, like right now; but, he is a pretty funny guy.
Mike talked about visiting his urologist after a commercial break. He said that he wrote down his symptoms in an email and his urologist CC’d a third person. Mike said that he told him “You’re fine; you just try to hard when you have sex.”
“You’re telling me?” Mike said. He tells Jimmy that the urologist did not believe him when he said that he was a comedian.
Temples played Shelter Song from their new album. Fallon earlier compared them a bit to “earlier Pink Floyd.” They sounded really great, echo-y and psychedelic. They are a band that could have come right from the 1960s, in a very good way. They ROCKED OUT!
On The Late Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Heidi Klum showed Jimmy Fallon how she rolls — literally. Also, comedian Mike Birbiglia added his brand of humor to the show. He is a sort of anecdotal comedian, blending in humor to his everyday life experiences. He is a pretty hilarious guy. Finally, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon concluded with an excellent performance by Temples.
