Jimmy Fallon told Fresh Air about how he practiced for his gig at Late Night:
I would sit to the left of my wife every night at dinner and look at her and try to ask her about her food and stuff but you don’t know what it’s like until you’re in the situation and talking to people. I interviewed strangers. I interviewed my mom. … She was an awful guest. She kept wanting to cut to a clip. And we have no clip. She’s not in a movie. She’s my mother.
