>> questlove: 436, ibiza! >> steve: and now, here he is, jimmy fallon! [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: oh, hello, everybody. hi! [ cheers and applause ] that's what i'm talking about right there. that's what i'm talking about. hot crowd here in new york city tonight. [ cheers and applause ] hot show. welcome, everybody. welcome to "the tonight show." this is it. you made it. [ cheers and applause ] this is fun. you're going to have a good time tonight. here's what everyone's talking about. i saw that trump tower in
lightning -- -- during the illinois primary -- [ light laughter ] -- which donald trump went on to win. yeah, nobody was hurt. while god was like, "crap, i missed." [ laughter ] [ applause ] that's right. trump tower in chicago was struck by lightning during the illinois primary. there were no injuries, but long story short, donald trump has switched bodies with an 11-year-old boy. [ laughter and applause ] it's fine. "we're having ice cream for breakfast." [ laughter ] speaking of trump, he recently said that if he becomes president he'll force apple to start making its products in the united states. it's great news for anyone who wants to pay $20,000 for an iphone. [ laughter ] [ applause ] good idea. and the president of cnn rejected claims that the network has given donald trump too much attention, and said he feels no responsibility for the rise of donald trump. makes sense.
trump a lot on tv doesn't mean they're responsible for what he does if he's president. >> donald trump, donald trump, donald trump, donald trump, donald trump, donald trump, donald trump, donald trump. it's huuuuge! [ cheers ] >> jimmy: that's what my job is. >> steve: it's your job. >> jimmy: never know. and lindsey graham who is just fantastic right now. he has announced that he's supporting ted cruz since jeb bush is out of the race, and graham had a lot of good things to say about cruz -- kind of. check this out. >> i'm gonna be doing a a fundraiser with and for senator cruz. i think he's the best alternative to donald trump. he's certainly not my preference, senator cruz is not, but he's a reliable republican conservative with which i've had many differences with. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: "i think he's a real jerk and annoying and -- [ laughter ] -- it's a shame he was ever born. and i just need a really giant frozen margarita right now." [ light laughter ] also claims ted cruz's new slogan, "ted cruz, all you got left." [ laughter ]
[ applause ] not bad. >> steve: not bad slogan. >> jimmy: of course, march madness is in full swing. and yale pulled off a major upset in the first round yesterday by beating baylor. and after the game reporters tried to get one of the baylor players to explain how yale could have gotten more rebounds. listen to what he had to say. >> how does yale outrebound baylor? >> you go up and grab the ball off the rim when it comes off. [ laughter ] and then you grab it with two hands, and you come down with it. and that's considered a a rebound. [ laughter ] so they got more of those than we did. [ laughter ] [ applause ] >> jimmy: is that what happened? yeah, thanks, buddy. you know, the reporter's like, "i'm 45 years old. how am i still getting bullied?" [ laughter ] meanwhile, arizona was upset in its game against wichita state. a lot of people were saying the coach for arizona was sweating a lot. take a look at this. wow. [ audience oohs ]
it looks like he dumped gatorade on himself. yeah. [ laughter ] he lost the game, but he did win the wet t-shirt contest. [ laughter and applause ] it's up there. >> steve: a very sheer shirt. >> jimmy: i hope everyone had a a great st. patrick's day yesterday. [ cheers and applause ] props to the nypd for doing a a great job, too, yesterday with the parade and everything. [ applause ] everybody, everyone involved with security. i mean, there's millions of people celebrating here in new york city. so that means it's time for safe plastic's day. where we send our writer arthur to the streets to see whether or not people notice that he's mispronouncing st. patrick's day. [ light laughter ] check this out. [ cheers and applause ] safe. plastic's day >> what have you been doing to celebrate st. plastic's day? >> i've been, you know, hanging out with friends, comining to check out the city, check out the parade. >> what do you think is so special about shake rabbit's day? [ laughter ] >> i think it goes right -- all about family.

[ laughter ] >> oh, absolutely, yeah. it's been a good day. >> are you having a good stank. mattress day? [ slurring ] >> i am having a good st. patrick's day. the last time i did this, i was 18. drinking to celebrate chris kirpatrick's day? >> a little bit, but not honestly too much. 'cause i got here kind of late. >> what is so special about praying mantis day? >> just everybody out, drinking, having a good time. the rest of the night to celebrate whale bandit's day? >> go back to westchester and enjoy with all my friends. >> you seem like you really love spank sagot day. >> i love it, you know what i mean? >> i hope you continue to have a great lenny kravitz day. >> thank you so much. >> thank you. >> jimmy: there you go. yeah. [ cheers and applause ] happy lenny kravitz day to everybody. he's a good man. he deserved all this. you guys, sunday is the first day of spring. that's right. [ cheers ] but meteorologists are forecasting a nor'easter for much of the east coast. this is true. including the possibility of a a foot of snow in boston and
[ audience oohs ] now, people -- yeah, we're already starting to think about easter, now they have to think about this nor'easter, and it could -- [ laughter ] -- easily get confusing. yeah. so -- so we thought we'd point out just a few of the differences so you know what's up. first, on easter, he is risen. on nor'easter, you are frozen. [ laughter ] >> steve: oh i see. >> jimmy: see the difference? >> steve: big difference, yeah. [ applause ] >> jimmy: next, easter signals the beginning of spring. nor'easter -- psych! [ laughter ] next, during easter, a giant bunny brings you a basket of candy. during nor'easter, a pissed off delivery guy brings you a bag of chinese food. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] "whatever it is, you better tip me, man. it's awful out there." next, easter celebrates the resurrection of jesus. nor'easter celebrates the resurrection of the shovel you thought you wouldn't need again for nine months. [ laughter and applause ] "honey, where did we put that thing?" and finally on easter, you consider eating brunch with your family. in a nor'easter, you consider eating your family for brunch.
you do what you got to do. >> steve: donner, party of one. >> jimmy: you got to survive. >> steve: you got to survive. >> jimmy: you got to survive, man. >> steve: you got to live it up. >> jimmy: this is kind of crazy. police in pennsylvania recently caught a 78-year-old nun shoplifting coffee, soap, and snacks from the store. police were like, "sounds like someone's got a -- bad habit." [ laughter ] [ applause ] >> steve: wow. lot of production value in that one. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: "i'm cool." >> steve: yeah! [ laughter ] >> jimmy: oh. hey, this is not good here. bumblebee tuna has issued a a nationwide -- did i do it right? >> yeah. >> jimmy: he goes, "yeaaah!" he puts it on, right? then does he ever take it off? or should i have put it on, said the thing, then ripped it off?
not, wait, sorry, apologize. i'll just start the joke with them off. [ laughter ] >> steve: put a white flash of light. >> jimmy: normally, you can see the difference. >> steve: they don't even know. they got stuff to do tomorrow. >> jimmy: this is kind of crazy here. police in pennsylvania -- [ laughter ] hey, kids. [ laughter ] this is kind of crazy here. police in pennsylvania recently caught a 78-year-old nun shoplifting coffee, soap, and snacks from a store. police were like, "sounds like someone's got a -- -- bad habit" yeah! [ cheers and applause ] [ laughter ] >> jimmy: the first one was -- i dunno. >> steve: they're both great. >> jimmy: first one was better. i don't know. that's why he gets paid the big bucks. [ laughter ] guys, this isn't good here. bumblebee tuna fans, anyone? [ laughter ]
a nationwide recall of over 30,000 cases of canned tuna due to spoilage concerns. >> steve: wow. >> jimmy: yeah. in fact, the company's also released a statement to its customers. here's what it says -- "here at bumblebee tuna, our safety is -- your safety is our highest priority. so please pay attention to the following tips. if your tuna has a rotten taste or smells like sour garbage, that is completely normal tuna. [ laughter ] if you open a can of tuna and people around you say, "ugh, what is that?" or, "geez, again, greg?" don't worry, these are completely normal reactions to cans of tuna. [ laughter ] if your tuna does not look like something a cat ate and then threw back up, there may be something wrong with your tuna." [ laughter and applause ] three tips there to look out for and be careful. and they're not the only ones having trouble. i saw that maserati is recalling almost 30,000 cars due to premature acceleration. [ laughter ]

agent, said "i'll do it. no matter when they're doing it, i'll do it." >> jimmy: when you do the play -- i was so afraid of doing one. >> yeah. me, too. >> jimmy: because you always hear those stories. like, oh, i went out like the lights didn't turn on or someone dropped a line or i forgot to read -- >> oh, yeah, you have nightmares every night about what could happen. one of my biggest nightmares i got to have come true. [ light laughter ] about two nights ago -- >> jimmy: we like to make dreams come true for you, buddy. >> about two nights ago, i walked out. i was doing the play. felt really good. felt like i had a lot of good chatter in the audience. we're doing it in the round. so everybody is right there. you're just doing the play to people all around. everybody was laughing, talking to each other. i was like, "i'm killing it." find out, nope, my fly was open the whole time. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: oh, my gosh. >> yeah, that's awesome. that's so confidence building. in the middle of a monologue, being like, "you know the thing is" -- oh, okay. one second.
hank azaria, who is incredible, happened to go up on his line, which means he forgot a line. he was very upset about it, which happens to everybody. and he was very upset about it and then he looked directly at my crotch and in his head he said i said, "well, at least that's not happening to me." [ laughter ] >> jimmy: what a help. yeah, thanks for that, buddy. >> yeah, yeah, yeah. perfect. and he's like, "no, that's an actor's nightmare." i was like, "i get it, man, it was awful." >> jimmy: do cell phones go off? do people unwrap the candy? 'cause i remember, my mom, i took her to every premiere. all of a sudden you hear -- like a big scene and all of a a sudden you hear, like -- [ crinkling paper ] please, that's not my mom. it's not my mom. and i look over, it's my mom with this tiny -- i go, "will you stop it?" >> that sounded like a a whatchamacallit. that's was a big wrapper. >> jimmy: all her candies are paper -- >> they're wrapped in newspaper. >> jimmy: yes, yes. >> i did. i had -- i was really nervous about getting distracted and also, like, breaking, you know, laughing on stage, because i'm a big laugher. >> jimmy: i wouldn't know what that's like. >> no, no, not at all. [ light laughter ]
>> i'm a nonprofessional is what i am. no, i had stepped on stage, was doing the first scene with claire and hank. and a gentleman expelled air. [ laughter ] and in a way, that was definitely something i thought i would laugh at. and instead it was so long. [ laughter ] i'm not kidding. it went on and on and on. and i think people were being really polite the first third of it. [ laughter ] they were like, "oh, man, that guy just didn't get to the bathroom quick enough." then by the second third and the third third -- and i will say, i don't usually speak like this. but finally a woman in the front row just went, "you've got to be [ bleep ] kidding me!" [ laughter and applause ] >> jimmy: well, it's new york. >> it was new york. >> jimmy: it was new york. >> those aren't my words. >> jimmy: you got to expect that. >> no, no, no. >> jimmy: but it's a giant hit. it's been extended to may 1st. >> yes. very exciting. >> jimmy: so go check it out over at the public theater right there. john krasinski. >> thank you.
