Keep Your Day Job -- Madonna Fails Miserably At Stand Up Comedy Attempt (Watch)

April 12th, 2015 5:22pm EDT
Madonna and Jimmy Fallon
After years of producing elaborate stage shows where "no one makes any money," Madonna told Jimmy Fallon on Thursday night's episode of The Tonight Show that it would be nice if she didn't have to deal with all the expensive productions and could just walk out on stage and tell jokes, like a stand up comedian.

Naturally, Fallon's show was the perfect place to make this happen, as the host was more than willing to let her give it a try.

Once the two broached the subject of her dream job, she said she's "kind of a closet comedian" -- but, unfortunately, she should probably stay there (along...

Julia Louis-Dryefus appearance on "The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon" almost brought the house down when she and Fallon played a hilarious game of "Whisper Challenge."

During the game, Louis-Dreyfus and Fallon took turns wearing headphones with loud music playing while the other read a phrase. Each had two chances to figure out what their opponent was saying, using lipreading to guess the phrase.

The premise was simple enough, until the phrases on the cards were eventually revealed.

The "Veep" star went first and was so engrossed in the music that she didn't realize Fallon had repeated ...
