Jimmy Fallon And Ricky Gervais Switch Mouths In A Hilarious Skit

Jimmy Fallon has played a ton of hilarious games with his guests over the years, but I think this one might be the funniest of them all.

I really do mean that.

Fallon had Ricky Gervais on his program, and they played a little game called Lip Flip.

Basically, using some TV magic, Gervais’ mouth was superimposed over Fallon’s and Fallon’s mouth was superimposed over Gervais’.

The two comedians proceeded to speak for the other.

The results were priceless, and eventually, Gervais and Fallon ended up singing a Christmas duet together.

This clip is really great, and I hope this game becomes a staple on the show.

Jimmy Fallon And Adam Levine Sing Musical Impressions

Jimmy Fallon And Adam Levine Sing Musical Impressions

Besides playing games on The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon‘s second favorite thing is to sing. As he was hosting musician and singer Adam Levine, Jim asked him if he would like to play a new game called Wheel of Musical Impressions. The players must impersonate a famous singer while singing a completely random song, such as Bob Dylan singing the new hit Rude by Magic or Michael Jackson singing the theme to Sesame Street. It’s no surprise this clip has instantly gone viral.

Jimmy Fallon Opens Late Night With No Audience Because Of Hurricane Sandy

Hurricane Sandy pummeled the East Coast Monday night, and as a result, the entire city of New York has been shut down. Shows like Late Night With Jimmy Fallon sent their audiences home early before the storm really hit, but Jimmy continued on with his show anyways. 

With no audience. It was kinda awkward.
