Jimmy Fallon choked on Monday’s episode of Tonight’s show, as he welcomed his first full audience in the studio since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Welcome to Tonight’s show, Everybody. We have comedy, we have celebrities, we have music, ”said the host, who brought reduced-capacity audiences down to 30 Rock on March 22. “We have a full audience tonight – and most importantly, we have the air conditioning.
After touching in his opening monologue on the heat wave that hit the United States, Fallon called his attention to Jeff Bezos, the billionaire founder of Amazon who is once again making headlines.
“Jeff Bezos has just announced that next month he will fly aboard his company’s first manned rocket into space,” he explained. “Bezos will be the first person in space to look down and say, ‘I can actually see my house from here. “”
Referring to Amazon’s recent acquisition of MGM, the host added that “after the country reopened, most people bought a new swimsuit, maybe a little hard seltzer. This guy buys James Bond and a ticket to space.
Bezos says his space trip will be perfectly safe, Fallon continued, “because he’s packed by the same people who ship Amazon boxes.”
Later in his monologue, the late-night host turned to Sunday’s much-discussed boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul, which some critics call “boring.”
“If you missed it you can see all the highlights by Google ‘Men Who Kiss For Money’,” Fallon joked. “The result was a draw so the only loser was everyone who paid $ 50 to watch a fake fight.”
