Gad Elmaleh Teaches Jimmy Fallon to Do the Moroccan Hip Thrust

Now, we may love French-Moroccan comedian Gad Elmaleh, but we absolutely adore him on late-night American talk shows.

After an excellent conversation with Conan O’Brien on his late-night show in March, during which Elmaleh regaled the host and crowd with stories of making up fake English words to sing fake English songs.

Last week, he was on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and taught the host a few things about himself, like that his show airs in France in the morning, how to impersonate Jerry Seinfeld (whom Elmaleh is often compared to) in French, and a fantastic dance move that Elmaleh calls, “the Moroccan hip-thrust.”

Elmaleh is promoting his new standup special, “American Dream,” out on Netflix March 6.
