Somewhere, Al Yankovic is sweating.
Talk show host and parody extraordinaire Jimmy Fallon has reportedly signed a deal with Warner Bros. Records to release a comedy album in 2012. The album will include music and parodies featured on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
You probably don’t need reminding, but the former SNL skit-ster has consistently shown the world — via his Late Night stage — how to put a good spoof together. Recently, he wasted no time re-interpreting Justin Bieber’s “Baby” and looking back we have Fallon to thank for the Neil Young-inspired “Pants on the Ground” and the greatest rendition of Rebecca Black’s “Friday” the world has ever known. Not to mention this his pitch-perfect opening number as host of the 2010 Emmy Awards.
Fallon’s first comedy album, 2002’s “The Bathroom Wall,” went on to receive a Grammy nomination. Since then, he’s had 9 years and his own show to hone his craft.
