"Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon was hoisted onto a Roman chariot — we don't think it was real — and paraded through Harvard Square Saturday, his reward for being crowned "Emperor of Comedy" by the Harvard Lampoon.
"I apologize for all the traffic congestion," Fallon told the crowd in front of the Lampoon's office on Bow Street. "But it's really hard to get an Uber this time of day so I thought a chariot would be best."
Staffers at the venerable student-run comedy publication honored Fallon with the Elmer Award for Excellence in Humor, whose past recipients includes Robin Williams, John Cleese, Jay Leno, Billy Crystal, and Tracey Ullman.
As you might have guessed, the parade, which featured performances by the Belmont High School Band and the Harvard Crimson Dance Team, drew a decent crowd.
