Last Night on Late Night, 5/19/15: Bill Murray hops out of a cake and James Corden works in a deli

Late Night

Real comedy still happens on late night, we can prove it. If you like Conan comedy gold, Fallon friendliness, cutesy Corden, list-making Letterman, kneedy Kimmel, and all the rest, I hope you’ll enjoy this column too.

Last night on late night, Bill Murray hopped out of a cake on Letterman, Kimmel tried to seduce George Clooney, Jamie Foxx did great impressions, James Corden worked in a deli, and loads more!

Late Show with David Letterman 

  • Bill’s goodbye isn’t as touching as Norm’s, Martin Short’s, or many others, but it was distinctly Murray.
  • Murray hops out of a cake and feeds it to someone — Dave’s wife?

  • Bob Dylan performs “The Night We Called It a Day”.

  • Rupert Jee, often a surrogate for Dave’s mischief, relives some of his best moments on the show.

Jimmy Kimmel Live!

  • Jimmy Kimmel Live! will show a rerun the next day, and Kimmel begs everyone to please not watch that, and watch Late Show instead.
  • George Clooney’s prom photo.
  • Clooney talks about being a big time “freebie”.

  • Kimmel and Clooney talk pranks. Mostly writing letters to friends with phony stationery.

  • Kimmel gives a heartfelt homage and thanks to Dave.

  • This obviously means a lot to Jimmy. That picture of his birthday cake and Letterman jacket is very touching.
