Leave it to Jimmy Fallon to bring on comedy legend Carol Burnett to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and have her part of a hilarious spoof on the soaps!
The set-up has Fallon and Burnett discussing the time they played husband and wife in the lost 90′s soap opera entitled Tensions! And apparently Tensions only got past its third episode before it was canceled, because everything was “too tense” for the viewers to handle. The opening credits are even complete with an hourglass!
Inevitably, Fallon tosses to the clips of Tensions – which is actually being done live - as Fallon and Burnett run from the host set to another and don their costumes and perform the “tense” scenes, which are complete with soap signatures; long soap tags at the end of scenes, the slap, and throwing coffee in another character’s face! The best part of Tensions is that Jimmy and Carol were clearly having a blast doing it!
So after the jump enjoy Tensions, and then weigh-in if you got a giggle out of it!
