The Roots Get Their ‘Whaboom’ on During ‘The Tonight Show’
A new season of The Bachelorette has begun, and that means it's time to make fun of some of the wackier romantic prospects for America's next fianceé.
This year is the 13th season of The Bachelorette (really?), and after so many suitors have come and gone already, it's hard to make a lasting impression. Being a nice guy with strong prospects at a great future doesn't cut it anymore. Now you've got to vie for America's attentions among the endless sea of reality show contestants as well as the affections of that year's Bachelorette candidate. Some men, like Lucas Yancey, think they have it all figured out.
Aside from giving Lucases around the world a bad name, Yancey is also branding himself as the "Whaboom" guy on this season. He's an early favorite for comedians like Jimmy Fallon. Mostly because he's an incredibly easy target, as The Roots showed on last night's Tonight Show.
Look, it's been a rough start to the week. We can all use some dogs in sunglasses. Thanks, James.
While touring on The Joshua Tree anniversary, U2 stopped by Jimmy Kimmel's set to play a few songs and recall their decades-long career. Even the Irish rockers couldn't have known Kimmel was going to pull out one of the ultimate deep cuts from U2's early touring days though.
Way back when, before the advent of social media and before U2 became the worldwide juggernaut it is today, bands could often get away with simple disguises when touring. The Edge decided to take that concept one step further, and had the whole band dress up like a fake country music act to open for U2 one night. Oh to have been at that show.
Former Daily Show alum Rob Huebel hit up The Late Show to promote Baywatch this week. After catching up with Stephen Colbert on their time together on the Comedy Central news program, Huebel recounted his time as a producer on an unnamed prank show. At the time, he had a Michael Jackson impersonator with him, and the prank's concept was to try and get the Faux King of Pop to throw out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium.
It was almost a success, right until it wasn't. Note to self, don't get arrested in the Bronx on a Friday night.
While making the rounds to promote Wonder Woman, Chris Pine has heard just about every possible combination of questions from members of the press around the globe. However, one question keeps on coming up, and as Pine tells Seth Meyers, there was only really one answer he could think of after all this time.
