Jerry vs. Jimmy
In an attempt to find out who is funnier, Jerry Seinfeld and Jimmy Fallon faced off in a stand-up battle on The Tonight Show this week. The pair used a stand-up generator to select classic Seinfeld routines, which included Halloween, birthday and Star Wars-based bits. And while Jimmys impersonation of Jerry brought in the laughs, it was clear that there is only one Seinfeld and the comedy legend took the title of the first-ever stand-up battle.
The New York subways may be a busy underground hideout for rats and germs, but its also an untapped place for talented buskers, who make commuting tolerable.

Unappetizing Thanksgiving fails
Our American neighbours celebrated Thanksgiving this week. And like all holidays, festive expectation can sometimes lead to major disappointments, even with major planning. Jimmy Fallon used the #ThanksgivingFails hashtag to keep tabs on some holiday breakdowns, which he shared on The Tonight Show ahead of dinner. The stories included a pie without a pan, dentures in mashed potatoes and food poisoning. One year the turkey still had pink juice coming from it after cooking, but my dad said it was just leg juice,' one tweet read. Everybody but me ended up with food poisoning.
Trump and LaVar Ball
The political and sports worlds were at odds once again this week once President Donald Trump took to his favourite platform Twitter to call out LaVar Ball, who he didnt think gave him enough credit for assisting in freeing a trio of UCLA basketball players who were charged with shoplifting earlier this month. Stephen Colbert was sure to show his support for Ball on The Late Show, particularly in how he publicly responded to Trumps digital digs. Pretending not to know him is the meanest thing you can do to Donald Trump, Colbert said. Knowing who he is, is his whole thing. Thats why he puts his name on all of his buildings and one of his kids.
