Iliza Shlesinger’s third performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

For her third appearance performing stand-up on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Iliza Shlesinger went back to catch viewers up on her notion of the “party goblin,” a concept explaining that part of your subconscious that talks you into making poor decisions that she has joked about before — not only on Fallon but also in her most recent Netflix stand-up special, Freezing Hot. That’s so Millennial, right? Shlesinger traces back our self-absorption to our grandparents who fought in WWII and sought the American Dream.

Roll the clip!
