JIMMY FALLON
The Bathroom Wall
(Dreamworks)

Most of you know Jimmy Fallon from his work on “Saturday Night Live” (i.e. co-anchor of Weekend Update, Nick Burns: the Company Computer Guy).

Now, much like “SNL” alum Adam Sandler, he’s released an album.

Unlike Sandler’s recorded work, there’s more to it than “The Chanukah Song.”
Fallon’s songs are quite funny, like “Idiot Boyfriend,” the track on which Fallon proclaims “I know what you want / and I know what you need / But I’m gonna screw it up, ’cause I’m an idiot and I’m your boyfriend.”

And at the precise moment where you start to get completely sick of them, they stop and the stand-up starts.

Snippets like “Dorms, Shower Baskets and the Walk of Shame,” and “Chris Rock Was My R.A.” are priceless.

Fallon is also a master impersonator, and his work here alone is worth the price of the disc.
