Tina Fey and Ben Stiller Are Really Mad at Jimmy Fallon in Tonight Show Anniversary Sketch
On Monday, Fallon, 44, celebrated his fifth anniversary as host of The Tonight Show with a special episode. The episode, inspired by the style of The Larry Sanders Show, in part showed “behind-the-scenes” footage of the show’s taping. The faux footage shows guests Fey, 48, and Stiller, 53, jokingly getting angry with the host.
As Fey walks out onstage with Fallon, the comedian kicks off the running joke, telling him, “You’re a terrible person.”
Watching from backstage, behind-the-scenes footage shows a disgruntled Stiller viewing the taping, stating, “Standing ovation! That’s great. Do you think they’d clap more for her than me, though? You know what, don’t answer that. I’m out of here. I’ll shop my wares somewhere else.”
Stiller — who is dressed as Tonight Show panda mascot Hashtag — begins to storm out of the building saying, “By the way, that trash can — full of cockroaches! Like my dressing room! Totally infested. This building is infested. It’s infested with Fallon-itis!”
Back on the stage, Fey and Fallon discuss her upcoming Netflix movie Wine Country and Ariana Grande‘s “thank u, next” music video. While pausing to watch a clip of Wine Country, Fey and Fallon continue their spat.
“Hey, do you mind telling me what the hell your problem is?” Fallon asks Fey.
“You know what you did,” she responds, adding jokingly, “maybe if you weren’t popping so many pills you would have a better sense of yourself.”
“Just so you know, I will smile and finish this interview because I am a professional but in the future, I will be shopping my wares elsewhere,” Fey continues.
The bit wasn’t the only Sanders-inspired sketch, as Fallon’s monologue also got the special treatment.
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. on NBC.
