Alison Brie Shows Off Her Balloon Animals Prowess On 'The Tonight Show' (VIDEO)

"Community" star Alison Brie surprised "The Tonight Show" (Weeknights, 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC) host Jay Leno Wednesday night with her surprising balloon animal prowess.

It turned out that Brie got her start in show business working as a clown at children's parties, hence her extensive knowledge of balloon animals.

As she started to pump up a rather long balloon, fellow guest Garry Shandling deadpanned that the sight was "way too easy" to joke about.

"Community" is currently on hiatus. "The Tonight Show" airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.
