This uber cool chic I work with, aka Ginny G, told me this past Thursday that a friend of hers was going to check out Jimmy Fallon at Zanies. I immediately knew I was blessed to be hearing this info because the ticket was for Bret Ernst and Jimmy was billed as the 'Special Guest.' I found a tidbit online confirming Jimmy as the "very special mystery guest." The MC for the night, the very funny Lucas Bohn, opened the show with a 15min set and set the mood right. He then handed it off with 'this next performer needs no introduction, Saturday Night Live's Jimmy Fallon.' Jimmy came on with his guitar and immediately started with his tune 'Car Wash for Peace.' We had perfect seats in the center of the balcony upstairs and as soon as Fallon said he didn't mind if we took pictures I decided that meant videos too. The headliner, Bret Ernst, (from Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show and Weeds on Showtime) followed Jimmy and kept the level of comedy at about as good as it gets. I was in tears a couple times. He immediately created good rapport with us and maybe because we could relate to him, definitely at the table I was sitting at, assuming he's around 30. He made fun of some of his friend's MySpace pages, being a teacher, working in the restuarant industry, early 90s R&B (Jodeci, haha!) and going to the roller skating rink back in the day! Awwww, we had a blast and laughed so much it hurt. I have some videos from the show below, ENJOY and check out the rest on my YouTube channel, worthyofnotedotcom!
