Why am I thinking about the Tonight Show on a Monday morning? Well, first of all, let’s not forget that we replay the Tonight Show monologue every morning at 6:40 on the Morning Waking Crew. Secondly, still laughing after having attended the 19th annual Comics Come Home in Boston over the weekend. It’s an annual benefit for the Cam Neely Foundation headlined by Denis Leary. Karen is a huge Leary fan, and we both love Leary’s long-time friend and co-hort Lenny Clarke, but I digress. Back to the Tonight Show. While Leno is still funny, and there’s no question the guy is a survivor, I’m looking forward to Jimmy Fallon taking over next year. Jimmy was one of the guests at the show in Boston Saturday night. Turns out the Cam Neely Foundation helped save his dad’s life.
Fallon is one of the most talented and funny guys out there. His musical chops are also pretty amazing! He’s a guy about to inherit a prized piece of TV real estate and I for one think he’s going to do a great job!
