Jimmy Fallon: My Goal Is Just To Make You Laugh

"My goal is just [to] make you laugh and put a smile on your face so that you go to sleep with a smile on your face and live a longer life.  Isn't that the whole goal of what we're doing?  [To] have fun?"


Jimmy Fallon ushered in a new era of The Tonight Show with an opening monologue that skewed more towards sentimental than jokey, and echoed the basic tenant of this blog: to have fun.  It is because of this I felt compelled to share, in case you missed it, the first six minutes of Fallon's tenure as host.  Whether he lasts thirty years or thirty seconds, I can appreciate his brand of comedy, and philosophy that smiling facilitates a longer life.  If "what we're doing" refers to how we're living, then yes, Jimmy, the goal should most definitely be to have fun.  Thank you.
