Jason Sudeikis plays an aggravated juggler in never-aired 'SNL' sketch

Seth Meyers gave Jason Sudeikis the chance to get his beloved, never-aired Saturday Night Live sketch about the humiliations of a juggling lessons peddler on the air as part of Late Night‘s “Second Chance Theatre” Tuesday.

Sudeikis had discussed his love for “juggling flyer” on an earlier episode of Late Night in which Meyers said the sketch is “just historic upstairs.” In it, Sudeikis plays a suspenders-wearing man who becomes enraged with the patrons of a coffee shop after realizing that no one has pulled any of the tabs from his flyer for “jugging lessons.”

The sketch is a little long, but it has some golden moments, including late in the game flubs and Fred Armisen’s impenetrable deadpan.  READ FULL STORY

Former SNL star Ana Gasteyer was on Late Night with Seth Meyers last night alongside one of her targets: Martha Stewart. So, Gasteyer took her chance to (sort of) apologize to Stewart. Gasteyer explained, for instance, that she intensely researched Stewart for her impersonation, which was perhaps most sublimely funny when performed topless. “I wanted to dig deep and get inside your head, and instead I dug through your beautifully organized dumpsters and I re-gifted your fish tank, and for that I am sorry,” Gasteyer said. Her other apologies included:

- “I apologize for selling my water bong with your name on it as part of my own Martha Stewart Living Collection.”

- “I’m sorry for pretending to be you in restaurants. By the way, you’re banned from all of the bathrooms at Chipotle Times Square.”

- “Finally, I apologize for sending my drone to mockingly photograph your drone a few weeks ago.” READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers pay tribute to Robin Williams

Tuesday’s episode of The Tonight Show started not with a “hello,” but with a “nanu nanu” from The Roots’ Questlove. The drummer was paying tribute to Robin Williams, who died Monday at 63: “Nanu nanu” was how Mork said goodbye to his fellow aliens in ’70s sitcom Mork and Mindy, the show that gave Williams his start.

Video: Seth Meyers recruits LeBron James on 'Late Night'

After opting out of his contract with the Miami Heat, LeBron James has a big decision to make. And luckily for him, Seth Meyers has an offer he can’t (but probably will) refuse.

On Late Night with Seth Meyers, Meyers and his team put together a rather compelling argument for James to take his talents to New York, but not in the way you’re thinking. Meyers isn’t recruiting James to the New York Knicks. Nope: Meyers thinks James’ talents are better suited for an office setting that offers him a computer, a tape dispenser, access to tons of electrical outlets, and eight different kinds of milk to keep his bones strong. Not to mention that the Late Night office has “heat, calves, and [nail] clippers.” So really, is it all that different from the basketball world?

Lena Dunham performs interpretive dance while Sia sings on 'Late Night'

Today in “sentences that once seemed impossible”: Lena Dunham performed an interpretive dance to Sia’s latest hit, “Chandelier,” on Late Night with Seth Meyers Tuesday night.

As fans of Sia — a singer who’s also written songs for Beyonce and Katy Perry, among others — are aware, the musician doesn’t like appearing on camera. “Chandelier” is the first single off her upcoming solo album 1000 Forms Of Fear, Sia’s first since 2010’s We Are Born.

Inspired by the song’s official video, the Late Night performance finds Dunham (wearing a blond wig not unlike the one Hannah Horvath wore last season on Girls) dancing around a bedroom set, smashing things and rocking out. You know, as one does. Important note: For this entire performance, Sia is also lying facedown on a bed.

Jennifer Lawrence admits she threw up at Oscars afterparty -- VIDEO

Let’s take a moment to celebrate Jennifer Lawrence’s actual best friend, you a woman named Laura Simpson.

Lawrence was on Late Night with Seth Meyers Wednesday, promoting X-Men: Days of Future Past. Of course, Meyers immediately wanted scoop from her most recent Oscars night. Lawrence charmingly obliged, and explained that her BFF Simpson demanded to be her date to the ceremony this time around — and apparently, Simpson is quite the bad influence on the Oscar-winning leading lady.

Lawrence said that Simpson encouraged her to drink — a lot — and yell at an amazing-smelling Brad Pitt. The night culminated with Lawrence vomiting on the steps of a fancy-pants, Madonna-hosted after-party. The kicker? Miley Cyrus saw the scene play out — and told Lawrence to get it together.

Brief moment of humiliation in exchange for a party anecdote she’ll be telling forever? Sounds like a deal: READ FULL STORY
