Laugh Track: Which Korea Again?

Friday’s episode of NBC's “The Tonight Show” featured comedians Desus Nice and The Kid Mero, with host Jimmy Fallon asking them about the Winter Games and the Super Bowl. Mero asked, “Where’s Pyeongchang? That’s the good Korea, right?” Nice: “That’s important. If you get off at the airport and it’s like, ‘Yo, you’re in North Korea,’ that changes everything. There’s no good Airbnbs in North Korea.” Fallon asked, “Super Bowl LII. Who do New Yorkers root for?” Nice and Mero said, “Let’s go Yankees!” Nice: “Philly will probably have to declare a state of emergency if they win the Super Bowl, because it’s going to be greasy poles everywhere, shit is going to be on fire. Somebody’s going to hijack the train, it’s going to be wild. They’ll go nuts and then 10 years later it’ll be a Denzel movie."

Friday's "Tonight Show" also had the recurring segment “Thank You Notes.” Host Jimmy Fallon said, “Thank you, speed skating, for being the most intense way to dab.” Fallon: “Thank you Patriots going to the Super Bowl, because who doesn't love a good overdog story.” Fallon: “Thank you, Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson, for always looking like you’re wearing a Guy Fieri visor" ("The Tonight Show," NBC, 1/26).
