Mike Birbiglia and Spike Lee show Jimmy Fallon what not to do
Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night had a double-whammy of TV goodness Thursday, with director Spike Lee and comedian Mike Birbiglia stopping by to talk about their respective projects.
Not surprisingly, Lee mostly wanted to talk about the Knicks. The NBA season hasn't even started yet, but Lee wants to talk about...the Knicks. Luckily, the conversation eventually switched to the filmmaker's new joint, Red Hook Summer, and Lee talked about the Mookie (Do the Right Thing) cameo in it and a little backstory about why the character is still delivering pizzas for Sal. Lee also spoke about the feature documentary he just finished about Michael Jackson's Bad album. Fallon also gives everyone a tip for something not to do if you ever meet legendary record producer Clive Davis.
But the highlight of the night was comedian Birbiglia's appearance. He talked about his new autobiographical movie, Sleepwalk with Me (with a wide release today!), based on his off-Broadway play. Birbiglia also gives us all some helpful hints of things not to say when you are pulled over by a cop. As Birbiglia says, "Apparently, cops are not amused by naiveté." No, they aren't. It does, however, make for funny late night viewing.
