Martin Short jokes about Jimmy Fallon's 'small penis', asks if he's been taking bleach injections
The camaraderie between the two was hilarious and endearing right from the beginning of the late-night talk show
On Monday night, actor Martin Short appeared as a guest on 'The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon', streaming live from his Los Angeles residence. Both of them bonded over their love for TV shows, discussed jump rope, and Short's upcoming true-crime comedy, 'Only Murders In the Building'.
Fallon told Short that he's been jumping rope and on further prodding by the latter, the talk show host played along saying he does the activity "in the nude". A couple of moments later, Fallon failing to stall his laughter when Short said the words, "that is the first time you'd have realized having a small penis is an advantage". However, Fallon one-upped Short with a comeback asking him, "but what do you think I am using for the jump rope"
The camaraderie between the two was hilarious and endearing right from the beginning. The actor starts by telling Fallon that he looked fantastic and asked if he's been taking bleach injections. Short also revealed that he watches the late-night show daily and the presence of a slide in Fallon's house makes him wonder if the host sleeps in a racecar bed.
Speaking about his Hulu show with actor Steve Martin, Short said, "What Hulu was doing was going after the coveted 70-95-year-old demographic. So its kind of like Steve at the urinals, streams for 42 mins".
Short said his favorite pass time during the pandemic is watching old reruns on television. He joked about being "moved and totally surprised" while watching 'St Elsewhere'. He also said that he knew nothing about 'Property Brothers' at the beginning of the pandemic but he now knows "Jonathan Scott is the spunky one".
He also said that he spends a lot of time with his photocopier and old albums that have pictures that date back to 1913. Short joked that he "helps people who died years ago feel better about themselves". He revealed that he transfers old photos to his computer and plays around with them. "I go, Grandma looks tired here, what if I got rid of her bags? I do that and then grandma looks kinda hot," joked Short.
Fallon too revealed that he's been bingeing on a lot of reality shows like 'Below Deck' and 'Survivor'. Short was quick to chime in, saying he doesn't watch reality shows. "I'm a reader, it's different," he joked.
Speaking of the countrywide protests following George Floyd's death, Short said that he's aware that this is "a defining moment in history". Referring to the Sandy Hook incident, Short further added that the country has "been on the precipice of great change in the past" but nothing changed, however, he's hopeful things will be different going forward. "I think this is different. This time it looks like change might actually happen and I am feeling very positive".
