Blake Shelton, Nick Offerman, Jimmy Fallon and writer Chris Tartaro are ... "The Chickeneers. " Things got a little egg-centric on the "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" set Thursday when "The Voice" judge, "Parks & Rec" star, late-night host and TV writer performed their rendition of "Ho Hey!" by Grammy-nominated band the Lumineers. Dressed as chickens. Clucking their way through the whole song. No words, just clucks. Bock , bock and everything. The quartet was costumed as bright yellow fowl, a la Big Bird, and delivered a nearly straight-faced performance of the hit song in celebration of Easter this Sunday.

What if you had experienced the defining moment of your life - but couldn't remember it? Sharr White's remarkable two-person play, “Annapurna,” now at the Odyssey, deals with just that dilemma, as well as other imponderables such as the vagaries of love and the philosophical clarity of impending death. From White's poignant script to Bart DeLorenzo's faultless direction to Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman's beautifully centered performances, “Annapurna” is a lovely theatrical construct from the ground up. PHOTOS: Hollywood stars on stage The production's slice-of-life specificity begins with Thomas A. Walsh's scenic design, a squalid trailer in the Colorado foothills bespeaking hopelessness in every filthy detail. The magnificent Rockies, looming just outside, stand in ironic counterpoint to this “purgatory,” a sort of sick animal's burrow where once-celebrated poet Ulysses (Offerman)

"I suppose it's splitting hairs, but I feel more like a humorist, because my show is anecdotal. " Billed as an evening of "songs and woodworking tips with minor nudity," the show promises to show many sides of Offerman's comedy, which lately is best known in his portrayal of the meat-eating libertarian Ron Swanson on NBC's "Parks and Recreation.

"A guy who's so funny and kills me right now is on 'Parks and Recreation:' Nick Offerman. He's someone, I think, who's in that vein of 'overnight sensation who's been working for 20 years' and no one knows about it. Nick's not a young guy, but he's someone who's so distinct and plays these great, bizarre characters. He's fantastic. And he's finally getting attention now, and a shot he really deserves. He's just dry and bizarre and weird. Oh, and has a great mustache. " For a zany night, Will Ferrell style, watch Nick Offerman on "Parks and Recreation" 9:30 p.m. Thursdays on NBC. firstname.lastname@example.org

With Jimmy Fallon officially set to take over “The Tonight Show” from Jay Leno next year, viewers can expect plenty of changes to the nearly 60-year-old late-night franchise. Of course there's the show's geographic relocation, from Burbank to a souped-up new studio at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York City. But there's also a vast stylistic difference between Leno, 62, and Fallon, who will be several months shy of his 40th birthday when he takes over “Tonight.” In his two decades at NBC, Leno has consistently led the ratings -- mostly, his critics claim, by playing it safe with middle-of-the-road jokes and softball interviews.
