Sometimes it’s easy to forget that before he started winning lots of Oscars, Tom Hanks was primarily known as a funny man -- something he reminded viewers of Tuesday on "Late Night."

Dressed in a simple black turtleneck, Hanks delivered a poem that reimagined "Beach Boy Bingo," the classic episode in which young DJ scores tickets to see Uncle Jesse's favorite band in concert, as a feminist parable about growing up in a patriarchal society. (What? You never thought of it that way?)
