Jimmy Fallon Did a 'Larry Sanders' Homage Last Night with Jeffrey Tambor


Jeffrey Tambor was a guest on yesterday's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, so they had him guest announce the show and do the Hank Kingsley applause/applesauce intro from The Larry Sanders Show over a black-and-white credits sequence that paid homage to the show. In addition to that, they had Tambor continue to serve as guest announcer throughout the monologue, The Roots played some Sanders-esque intro music, and Fallon came out on a spotlight a la Sanders. Too bad they couldn't get Rip Torn back to laugh like Artie and rile the audience up by waving his script around during the monologue.

    Maybe they did. Were you there?
