Will Ferrell’s Finest Late Night Talk Show Appearances

As he proved yet again in his Tonight Show figure skating performance last night, Will Ferrell is never a boring talk show guest. Whether he’s promoting a new project as himself or gussied up and disguised as an extravagant alter ego, Ferrell consistently brings a warm yet sarcastic approach to all of his late night interviews and knows how to fall into perfect bantering chemistry opposite everyone from David Letterman to his longtime Groundlings buddy Conan O’Brien.
