Jokes and gut feelings were on hand when Keegan-Michael Key and Leslie Jones joined Jimmy Fallon for a game of “True Confessions” on Tuesday’s Tonight Show. The contestants read a statement about themselves that is either true or a lie.
Key went first, getting distracted by the fact that the coffee on the table wasn’t really coffee and was just a prop. He spoke about dressing as a caveman for a singing telegram company and “Detective Jones,” as Key called Jones, said she believed him.
When it was Fallon’s turn, his truth or lie was that he rode on the back of a Jet Ski with Madonna. Jones asked what year it was and when Fallon said 2011, she said she knew he was lying because “Madonna’s like 75.” (Madonna is 59.)
Fallon also said that the two didn’t speak the entire trip.
“That might be the truth then because Madonna don’t like white people,” said Jones. “I mean, she won’t even talk to half of me,” laughed Key.
They both accused Fallon of lying, rightfully so, as he confessed it was made up. Then it was Jones’ turn to convince the two men that she accepted a ride home from a man on a horse while at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
Earlier in the show Key sat down with Fallon and laughed about their experience filming the latest Camp Winnipesaukee sketch with Justin Timberlake and Billy Crystal.
Fallon said Key never did the same take twice, constantly ad-libbing lines. Key replied that he’s learned that beyond learning lines the important thing is to just “try and make everyone else laugh.”
“It keeps everyone feeling free and everybody on their toes and it makes everything feel alive,” said Key.
Key also thanked Fallon for his heartfelt words about Charlottesville, Va., from his monologue Monday.
