Are you writing jokes for the Emmys now?
Jimmy: No. It’s already written. I could do this tomorrow.
Tell me about the tux.
Jimmy: Tom Ford. Ready to go.
Are you nervous?
Jimmy: I just really want to do it. I host a show every night, but it’s a bigger room with more people.
Will your parents be there?
Jimmy: No. I told them, “No. Please, I’ll go on vacation with you… whatever you want me to do [as long as you don’t come].”
How about your wife?
Jimmy: My wife will be there. My parents offered their support – my sister, too – and I [told them] to just let me do this. I just want to get this done and focus.
Is there anyone you are hoping to get on your show [Late Night with Jimmy Fallon]?
Jimmy: The Rolling Stones were up there on our list and they came on; [Deadpans] The Queen of England was the other person, but I haven’t been able to get in touch with her. I can Skype with her.
Is one of your parents funny? Or where do you get your humor?
Jimmy: They’re both really funny. They are more funny than I am.
Do they get your jokes, too?
Jimmy: Yes. They refuse to watch [the show] the next day. They watch it live every night. I don’t even do that. I bought them a TiVo and they don’t want to hook it up.
Do they ever give you bits or ideas?
Jimmy: Oh yeah, all the time. They’re really funny.
Do you ever use them?
Jimmy: I do sometimes. My dad might come on the show pretty soon. My mom is creating a monster if I bring her on the show. I was doing an interview with Bon Appetit and they asked me if my mom had any special recipes and I said, “Yeah, sure.” And they said they would print it and I go, “Oh my God.” And I tell my mom Bon Appetit will print your [recipe] and she was like, “Oh my God.” She sent me over this cheesecake – she makes a really good cheesecake – so I sent it over to Bon Appetit. With only a week to go, they call me and say, “We tested it out in the test kitchen; It’s actually really delicious cheesecake – tell your mom great job. We have a question – did she get it from anywhere or did she make this up herself?” I go, “Let me check.” [So I ask her and she says], “Oh yeah. It’s from Bon Appetit.” I was like, “WHAT?!” I felt so bad for wasting their time.
Are you thinking about fatherhood any time soon?
Jimmy: Yeah. I’m thinking about it.
Jimmy: Yeah, I think so if we’re lucky enough to have a baby. If it happens, it will be the coolest thing in the world.
