So for those who arenâ€™t familiar with Jay Lenoâ€™s â€œ10 At 10â€³ â€“ most of you, probably â€“ hereâ€™s how it works. Leno asks 10 questions that are fairly benign, the celebrity who is appearing via satellite (oh, technology) answers them and then they move on to Jaywalking or Headlines or something. I think. I only really started watching the show this week. But tonight it was Kimmel, and he was a hilarious pain the ass.
Letâ€™s fast forward to question 4: â€œIf you got to interview anyone in the world, who would it be?â€ Kimmel: â€œYou and Conan together.â€ And then it begins.
Whatâ€™s the best prank Kimmel ever pulled? â€œI told a guy that five years from now, Iâ€™m gonna give you my show. And then when the five years came, I gave it to him, and then I took it back almost instantly,â€ said Kimmel
There was a lap dance question. â€œStrippers, I donâ€™t like in general,â€ said Kimmel. â€œBecause you have this phony relationship with them for money, similar to when you and Conan were on the Tonight Show together, passing the torch.â€
Leno asked â€œWhat would you like to host that you havenâ€™t yet?â€ Said Kimmel: â€œOh this is a trick, right? Where you get me to host the Tonight Show and then take it back from me? Listen Lucy Iâ€™m not Charlie Brown I donâ€™t fall for that trick.â€
