Tom Hanks recites slam poetry about sitcom “Full House” last night on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” show in NYC at Rockefeller Center

"Full House, house full of men ... Danny, Jesse, Joey, father, uncle, friend ... Uncle Jesse whose hair is never messy. Watch the hair hugh? Have Mercy on uncle Jesse. Three men raising 3 girls. Or are the girls raising them? Wake Up, San Francisco... No women in this full house, this house full of men ... This male dominated house. Cut it out!"
~~ Tom Hanks,
American actor, producer, writer, director, Oscar and Golden Globe awards recipient

Tom Hanks' visit last night to "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" at Rockefeller Center in NYC was anything but the usual celebrity guest appearance to promote his latest, another Oscar-worthy film, “Cloud Atlas.”

Much more than a 3-minute recital, Hanks poetically performed slam poetry about "Full House," popular '90s sitcom that chronicles the life of a San Francisco widower who commissions his two buddies to help raise his three daughters.

Dressed in the usual “poetic black turtleneck,” Hanks poetics covered themes from famous episode about eldest daughter D.J. concert tickets to famous buzz words -- “Good Morning, San Francisco,” “Have mercy,” and “Cut it out!”

  1. Thanks for sharing. I saw the video and enjoyed it. Hanks is a poet and knows it!

  2. Tom Hanks is one of those characters that is simply awesome. Anyone who can make a movie like "castaway" and be by himself the entire time is simply great!

  3. I remember Full House vividly.. My oh my where does the time go

  4. Hanks is one of the best around. I'm glad you brought it to my attention. Thanks

  5. I've got just one thing to say about this post: "Have Mercy!" LOL

  6. It's nice to see they are mixing it up a bit in late night tv now. The last few shows I seen on any of the networks was only shameless plugs of upcoming movies or shows. Most of which was not entertaining at all.

  7. I think Full House still airs on maybe TVLand network. This post and the show kinda makes me want to watch a few episodes now

  8. Never quite got the gist of Slam Poetry ..
