Last Night on Late Night, 5/7/15: Tina Fey strips down for Letterman and Jason Schwartzman strips for Adam Scott

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, Late Show‘s streak of awesome continued with Tina Fey, Matthew Weiner showed a “sneak peak” of the Mad Men finale to Conan, and Jane Fonda and Diddy kept it real with Jimmy Fallon.

Late Show with David Letterman 

  • In the monologue, Dave jokes about Big Bird, pin numbers, and Osama bin Laden.
  • A replay of the amazing Letterman origin story, “The Dave Letterman Story”.

  • “Dehydration or something”.
  • Best friend Donnie Osmand.
  • Tina Fey is never wearing a dress after the Late Show ends, and she gives Dave the final dress.

  • “What, am I gonna put a dress on for Jimmy? That’s creepy, he’s like my brother”.

  • Which fashion designer “dealt it”?

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon 

  • Sean “Diddy” Combs is on the show, promoting a new tequila and fragrance. He gives a pretty funny interview, if only because it’s funny to see Diddy in this context.

  • A pretty natural interview. He even humbly explained what “Sean Jean” is, and didn’t just expect everyone to know.
  • Speaking of good interviews, Jane Fonda.

  • “I got motor in my booty”.
