Justin Timberlake & Jimmy Fallon Return With ‘Barry Gibb Talk Show’ After Decade-Long Absence on ‘SNL’: Watch

Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon are bringing the spirit of legendary pop trio the Bee Gees back to Studio 8H.


After debuting the “The Barry Gibb Talk Show” on Saturday Night Live more than two decades ago, the longtime pals revisited the hilarious sketch once again during Dakota Johnson-hosted episode on Jan. 27.

The hilarious sibling duo opened their show with a politically-themed version of Bee Gees top 10 hit “Nights on Broadway.” They followed by welcoming their guests — justice correspondent Elie Mystal (played by SNL cast member Kenan Thompson), Forward Party founder Andrew Yang (Bowen Yang) and political influencer Joanne Carducci (Johnson) — for a chaotic discussion about the 2024 U.S. presidential election.

Decked out in ’70s chic attire, the “Selfish” singer once again portrayed quiet Bee Gees member Robin Gibb while the Tonight Show host played his boisterous bandmate and brother, Barry Gibb. This marked the first “Barry Gibb Talk Show” sketch since 2013. It first debuted in 2003.

It didn’t take long for the Gibbs to interrupt their guests with sporadic harmonies and random inappropriate outbursts. Fallon’s Gibb even managed to throw in a reference about the 2023 black comedy Saltuburn.

“I fear nothing. I watched Saltburn with my entire family, and I knew about the bathtub scene beforehand. And I loved it,” Fallon’s character says after insulting Thompson’s Mystal.

The brothers followed the line with an awkward song set to the tune of Bees Gees classic “Stayin’ Alive.” “Ha, ha, ha, ha, lickin’ a drain, humpin’ a drain,” they harmonized.

Elsewhere during Saturday’s episode, Timberlake and Fallon awkwardly crashed Johnson’s monologue. JT served as the evening’s musical guest, performing two tracks — “Sanctified” and “Selfish” — from his upcoming sixth solo album, Everything I Thought It Was. The set is scheduled for release on March 15.
