They do so much for everyonewho needs food, and especially at this time, I always think of peoplewho are out of work now to everyone's staying inwho can't get food.

There's also –I think of a child out there who just relieson one meal a day, and they can't even get that.

These people work tirelesslyto make sure when that happens, these people get fed.

So please donate whateveryou can to feedingamerica.

org, whether it be $1, $5, anything is fantastic.

Welcome to “The Tonight Show.

” I'm so excited to be doingthe show from my panic room — I mean, living room.

[ Nancy and Jimmy laugh ] Guys, I'm gonna do somemonologue jokes here, okay? So, uh, I'm gonna read themto you here.

Of course, there's no audience — Well, there is an audience, my wife, but she doesn't really laughat everything that I say, so we'll see.

But if things are funny, but, hey, just take it with grain — You know, come on.

You know whatwe're trying to do here.

Here we go.

Welcome to “The Tonight Show.

” I'm so excited to be doingthe show from my panic room — I mean, living room.

As you can see, I'm doing the show from my home for two reasons –First, to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

Second, so I can write offmy real-estate taxes.

That's right, I'm doing the showfrom my house in New York, and this is how crazyNew York traffic is.

I'm doing the showfrom my living room, and I was still20 minutes late getting in.

But I hope you guys are like me and enjoying all thisextra time with your family.

Isn't it great? Today, we binge watcheda couple TV shows, then we checked outa couple movies, and then finally, my kids said to me, “Dad, can we watchsomething we like?” So far, it's been pretty funat the house.

We've been doing lots ofcoloring, making pillow forts, doing arts and crafts, while the kids have beenwatching TV in the basement.

But with classes canceledaround the country, lots of peopleare homeschooling their kids.

I'm homeschooling my kids, andit's working out pretty well.

In fact, my kids have alreadylearned a valuable lesson — Their dad is an idiot.

Seriously, after about15 minutes, my kids said, “We're transferringto mom's class.

” -[ Chuckles ] -You liked that one? But it's been an interestingfew days.

I never thought putting on pants would feel likean accomplishment.

These are crazy times.

We're being told not to visitsenior citizens and to FaceTime them instead.

Whoever came up with that ideaclearly hasn't tried to FaceTime with someone over 70.

It's like, “No, hold it — No, hold the phone away –Okay.

All right, now –He turned it off.

Turn it — Let's call him back.

” I want to wish everyonea happy St.

Patrick's Day.

Oh, no, that joke, we aren't gonna do.

We're not gonna do that joke, 'cause it's in the song.

Some big sports news today.

Tom Brady announced that heis leaving the New England Patriotson St.

Patrick's Day.


For Boston, that's likegetting dumped on your birthday.

At least Brady's announcement gave ESPN somethingto talk about.

Yesterday on “SportsCenter, ” they were airing the NBA'sbest bounce passes of 2009.

That's our monologue, everybody.

Whoo!-Whoo! -On St.

—Winnie! -Oh.

-Mom! Dad! Mom!-Okay.

-On St.

Patrick's Day — That should be a shamrock –we have to have the staples.

Of course, I know in these times, we can't go out, but we can celebrate.

Of course, Guinnessis the beer of choice, the stout from Ireland.

And the waya Guinness works is.



you pour it –Smoother than that, hopefully.

[ Nancy and Jimmy chuckling ]That sounded so gross.

I feel like it just explodedfrom the inside out.

All right, so, look.

So it looks like –You go, what is this? This is a cloudy mess.

Almost looks like — But see itall falling right there? How beautiful is that? That right there — That willall eventually clear up, and it'll be dark, black, with a nice white head on top.

It looks really good.

Of course, you have soda bread.

This is an Irish staple.

Not many people –If you bake this at home, people in the house reallywon't really eat it, 'cause there's carawayseeds in there, and it's really kind ofbaking soda-y and baking — it's just a lot of flour, and it's — I love it.

I think it's great.

Irish people love it.

But, again, if you make thisat home, you'll be the onlyone kind of eating it.

I mean, honey, you can havea piece if you'd like.

-I'm good, thanks.

-Yeah, I know.

But if you're gonna do it, use Kerrygold butter.

This is like –the Irish butter is the best, and you put that on there.

It's really thick, kind ofyellow-y type of butter.




Cheers! Is that disgusting? -[ Chuckles ] -That's good.

Are you zooming in?What are you doing? -[ Chuckles ] -Well.



I — Thank you.

It's very dry.


It's really, really good.

Happy St.

Patrick's Dayto everybody.

Okay, guys.

Again, if you can donateto feedingamerica.

org, that would be really helpful.

Thank you to Winnie Fallonfor drawing these up for me and Franny Fallon for notparticipating in the show — Well, a little musicalaccompaniment at the beginning.

And of course, I want tothank my wife, Nancy.
