I am a big fan of the Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon and I love when Aussie guests are on the show. Seeing as it’s Australia day today, I thought I would share my favourite Tonight show Aussie guest moments.
In no particular order.
Russell Crowe teaching Jimmy Fallon how to speak in an Australian Accent
OK, so this wasn’t a moment on the show, but a hilarious exchange between Russell Crowe and Jimmy during filming of promos for ABC2. Russell tries to explain how to do an Aussie accent.
Pool Bowling with Hugh Jackman
This was a really fun new game Jimmy played with Hugh Jackman last year, hopefully they’ll bring it back again this year! The most hilarious part was Hugh trying to cheat, but failed because he put one of his own balls (no not those ones, get your mind out of the gutter!) back on the table.
Liam Hemsworth and Jimmy strut in high heels
I never thought I would see Jimmy Fallon wearing high heels on the show! It was hilarious. Liam could walk quite well in heels. Jimmy too, but his were way shorter so he had an advantage. Try some stilettos next time, Jimmy!
THAT Nicole Kidman Interview
If you watch the show regularly (and haven’t been living under a rock), you know which interview I mean. It was all over social media and because Nicole’s an Aussie, it of course was mentioned on our news and morning shows. I don’t normally get enjoyment from seeing others’ discomfort, but this whole interview was awkwardly hilarious. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Jimmy’s face turn so red!
There you have it, a few of my favourite Tonight show Aussie guest moments. I hope you enjoy watching them as much as I did.
Happy Australia Day to all the Aussies reading! I hope you have a great day with family and friends, stay safe if traveling.
