Yesterday, when posting a video of Philly comedian Kevin Hart riding a roller coaster with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, writer Victor Fiorillo made a suggestion: “Let’s get Questlove and Fallon to ride the vomit-inducing Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom at Great Adventure.”

The Tonight Show continues its streak of being the most Philly show on Earth. Tonight, according to the TV that’s on in the background at my colleague’s house, legendary Philly comedian, actor and Picture Pages host Bill Cosby will sit down with Jimmy Fallon. Fingers crossed he makes another epic entrance like the one he made when he guested with Jay Leno last fall. Video above.
Yes, it helps that The Roots are the house band, but it feels like Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show is sometimes a celebration of … Philadelphia. Latest exhibit? Kevin Bacon’s entrance on Friday night.
