Casey Wilson on Fallon

The other night I witnessed a "sketch" on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon that was the single unfunniest thing I've ever seen on television (and I've seen the director's cut of Holocaust).

Casey Wilson - who is not funny on Saturday Night Live - brings her act to Fallon's show (which is also never funny) and hilarity does not ensue. I totally "get" what they're trying to do - but it just flops badly. Conan O'Brien can get away with this kind of absurdist nonsense, but Fallon just lets it die a painful death.

By the way, that's Wilson's boyfriend (fellow UCB-er Paul Rust) as the "pie sniffer". I bet they give birth to some really unfunny kids one day.
