The Tonight Show Party 2016

It started simple. “Hey, wouldn’t it be fun to play the whisper challenge with a group of our friends?” From there, the idea grew. “Maybe we could play some other games from The Tonight Show, too.” “Wouldn’t it be funny if we all dressed up like celebrities?” “GUYS! What if we recreated the show? We could create the set, and have Jimmy interview people!” From there, The Tonight Show Party 2016 was born.

My friend Bre approached me about photographing the party a few months ago. As soon as she began describing their vision, I was so in. She kindly let me know that I didn’t have to get in on the whole dressing like a celebrity thing, but we all know that wasn’t happening. I began planning my Drew Barrymore outfit immediately. After months of preparation, the night had arrived.

Jimmy Fallon himself greeted me at the door! Injured finger, and all. (What a class act that Jimmy is.) I had some time to mingle with the other celebrities before the show began. Let me tell you, the paps would have had a field day with the celebrity couples there that night –
Jimmy & Katie Perry, Adele & Jonathan Scott from the Property Brothers, his brother Drew & Gina Rodriguez, Me & Nick Offerman, John Cena & Zooey Deschanel, Zach Galifianakis & Demi Lovato. But perhaps the most interesting pairing of all was Justin Timberlake & Betty White. (Don’t tell Jessica!) We also had a special appearance from some very knowledgeable animal experts, and that B list actress nobody knows.

We started off with some interviews – Jimmy asked about our latest projects and got to know us a little better. Then the games began. Nick O. killed flip cup, the Whisper Challenge proved much more difficult than any of us thought, we tested our integrity with Box of Lies, and Zach Galifianakis’s lip sync rendition of “A Whole New World” could melt even the hardest of hearts.

Soon, our one hour time slot had ended, and it was time to call it quits. But no fear, we all quickly decided to make this an annual ordeal.

Here are some of my favorite shots from this unforgettable night.
