Welcome to Best of Late Night, a rundown of the previous night’s highlights that lets you sleep — and lets us get paid to watch comedy. We’re all stuck at home at the moment, so here are the 50 best movies on Netflix right now.
Large and in Charge
President Biden and the first lady recently visited another presidential couple, Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter. Somehow, one of the official photos from the occasion came out looking like … well, watch one of the videos below to see.
“How is this the first we’re hearing about the Bidens being 40 feet tall?” Seth Meyers said on Tuesday.
“I learned two things from the photo,” Jimmy Fallon said. “The two families are very close, and Biden is the size of Jason Momoa.”
“That looks like a second grader made a presidential diorama.” — JIMMY FALLON
“They look like a ventriloquist act.” — SETH MEYERS
“They look like Jeff Dunham’s retired puppets.” — JIMMY FALLON
“OK guys, I mean, don’t get me wrong: I’m really happy to see these people all together and smiling and everything. It’s just — what the [expletive] is going on in this photo? Like, why do the Bidens look five times bigger than the Carters? Is there some dollhouse filter that I didn’t know about, because I’ve been staring at this thing the whole day and I still can’t figure out what’s going on. I can’t figure out if the Bidens had a late growth spurt, or if they’re playing with Jimmy Carter action figures, or maybe both at the same time.” — TREVOR NOAH
“Like, what were the photographer’s instructions here? ‘All right, guys, we’re gonna do a normal one, and then we’re gonna do a goofy one, and then we’re going to do one where it looks like you’re from two separate dimensions, yeah? We good?’” — TREVOR NOAH
“Honestly, this is the weirdest picture of a president since, well, any picture of Donald Trump.” — TREVOR NOAH
“But I’m not hating. Please don’t get me wrong. I think it is great to see presidents of different generations coming together to make me think that I’m on shrooms.” — TREVOR NOAH
The Punchiest Punchlines (Separate Wings Edition)
“Bill and Melinda Gates yesterday announced that they have decided to part ways after 27 years of marriage. They got the 27-year itch, I guess.” — JIMMY KIMMEL
“Apparently, it was an accumulation of lots of little things, like how Bill would never empty the recycling.” — SETH MEYERS
“They’ve already agreed to a custody arrangement. Bill gets to spend time with their money on Tuesday nights and every other weekend, and Melinda gets the rest.” — JIMMY KIMMEL
“You know Melinda Gates is thinking, ‘Finally I can use a MacBook!’” — JIMMY FALLON
“I think they both deserve their privacy, but if ABC wants to make Bill the next ‘Bachelor,’ I’m all in.” — JIMMY FALLON
“Remember what they say — when God closes a door, he opens a Windows 95.” — JIMMY FALLON
“You know, these two, they have a combined estimated worth of at least $134 billion. When you’re that rich, why do you even need to get divorced? Can’t they just live in separate wings?” — JIMMY KIMMEL
“But poor Bill Gates. He’s been sleeping in his jet. It’s very sad.” — JIMMY KIMMEL
