TORONTO — Jimmy Fallon ended his run as host of Late Night on Friday with a monologue that mentioned two troubled Canadians and a performance of a Canadian song.

Fallon said over the course of 969 shows he told more than 10,000 jokes.

“The best way I could summarize those jokes is that Joe Biden needed Obamacare after Anthony Weiner texted Justin Bieber a picture of Chris Christie dating a Kardashian on the Jersey Shore,” he said. “With Rob Ford.”

The show ended with Fallon and The Muppets performing “The Weight” — a song by The Band written by Toronto-born Robbie Robertson.

Fallon, who has hosted Late Night since 2009, will take over as host of The Tonight Show on Feb. 17. Tonight’s Jay Leno said goodbye on Thursday.

Saturday Night Live’s Seth Myers, who bid farewell to viewers last weekend, will take over for Fallon on Feb. 24.

Like Late Night, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon will be executive produced by Toronto-born SNL creator Lorne Michaels.
