What a joyful adventure!!
After her exhaustive but fruitless attempt to get anyone to say anything nice1 about “Tonight Show” host and irl Sid from “Ice Age” Jimmy Fallon yesterday, Rolling Stone’s Krystie Lee Yandoli further reports that Fallon apologized to his staff, kind of:
“It’s embarrassing and I feel so bad,” the employees say Fallon said. “Sorry if I embarrassed you and your family and friends… I feel so bad I can’t even tell you.
I’m not sure the main problem here is that Jimmy feels bad, but ok! Yandoli also reports that “employees… say the message from the talk show host ‘felt pretty earnest,’” which I mean, I bet he is earnestly embarrassed? I’m still not sure that’s the thing that requires an apology. Yandoli did finally manage to get one kinda positive comment:
One NBC employee who does not work for The Tonight Show responded to Rolling Stone’s request for an interview. They declined to speak on the phone, saying they’re unavailable until next week, but in their email they said, “I love what I do and have been so honored to work with Jimmy since Day 1 of SNL followed by The Tonight Show! The Tonight Show! What a joyful adventure!!”
Very normal quote, thanks!!
In Humorism Seth Simons idly wondered if Jimmy Fallon has ever done anything else bad, perhaps with his good friend Horatio Sanz. Who can say. In Passionfruit Drew Grant points out that as much as Fallon obviously sucks, Bill Maher is still publicly treating his writing staff even worse, somehow.
