As a general principle, we here at Warming Glow do our best to avoid posting anything related to “The Tonight Show”. There are a number of reasons for this policy, most notably that Jay Leno is a duplicitous creep who screwed two far more talented and creative people out of the hosting gig and turned the show into a world class derpfest filled with mediocre jokes aimed squarely at the lowest common denominator of its mouthbreathing audience. (Other than that, he seems swell, though.) That said, as with almost everything in this world, there are certain situations where we will make exceptions. One example of this would be if, oh I don’t know, “Community” star Alison Brie went on the show and talked about nude massages and balloon animals. Another would be anytime Louis C.K. is on, because he is the best.
The two clips from his appearance last night are posted below, and they do not disappoint. He covers everything from being envious of gay people, to Jerry Sandusky, to what a weird looking dude Ol’ Chins McGillicutty is, all in the span of about 10 minutes. Their conversation even managed to bring some zingers out of Leno, which, if I’m being fair, were actually pretty funny. The whole thing serves as continuing proof that Louis C.K. — who just announced a national comedy tour designed to stick it to Ticketmaster and scalpers — is a valuable natural resource and should probably be bronzed and stored in the Smithsonian upon his death.
