Studios are deserted and audiences hunkered down at home to practice social distancing in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, but Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah are trying to bring a little laughter into the world.

Fallon's 6-year-old daughter drew a new version of his tonight show graphic, but was unwilling to participate as his band leader. His wife happily filmed him as he read jokes his writers sent in from home, ate Irish Soda Bread to celebrate St. Patrick's Day and sang a quarantine ditty. From the guy who brought you songs played with classroom instruments, the playroom vibe really worked for Fallon. Also, is anyone surprised he has a slide in his house?

Colbert was way ahead of the curve, delivering a monologue from his bathtub Monday night. On Tuesday, the comedian "discovered fire" in his backyard (while wearing AirPods, natch) and still found a way to break out his Trump impression.

He and Colbert still managed to do a socially distanced and coronavirus-specific version of "Oh, Danny Boy" to celebrate St. Patty's.

Kimmel was all-in on St. Patrick's Day, wearing a green Guinness shirt from his own office (he's hiding from the kids that he just "discovered" he had) and suggested ways to celebrate from home: Dying hand sanitizer green and drinking. You'll never get the green off your hands, but hey, it's festive!

Tough day for Bostonians.
