Jay Leno was a staple in late night television and, upon his retirement, many wondered who could possibly be up to the task of carrying on his legacy, and not only did his replacement respond, he’s carving out a legacy all his own. Jimmy Fallon took over as the host of The Tonight Show on February 24, 2014 and, a year and a half later, no one can remember a time without him as a host. After almost every episode, a viral video seems to come out from the night’s show thanks to Fallon’s own incredible comedic ability, but of course thanks to the huge stars he gets to come on the show to not only interview, but to play ridiculous games or participate in hilarious sketches. There have been a lot of highlights from The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, but here are 10 of the absolute best.
10. Kristen Wiig as Khaleesi
Probably one of the most underrated celebrity interviews on Fallon’s show, in April 2015, comedienne Kristen Wiig showed up dressed as the very popular Game of Thrones character Khaleesi/Daenerys Targaryen, and the exchange between the two was hilarious. Fallon’s laugh is infectious so it didn’t help he could barely pull it together because of her outfit complete with a dragon on her shoulder, and her responses to his questions are side-splitting funny. Needless to say, the “Rapid Fire Questions” did not go so rapidly as both could not contain their laughter. If this is one Fallon interview you have missed, it is most definitely a must-see.
