Ronan Farrow certainly brought the laughs during an appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, Jan. 29.

The future MSNBC host dished on a wide range of topics, from his unique childhood to his upcoming news show.

"I had siblings from South Asia, from East Asia, from depressed communities around America," the 26-year-old told Jimmy Fallon about his 12 brothers and sisters. "And you know, we'd have long conversations."

He continued: "My sister Quincy, who is black, would get called the N-word at school and we'd talk for hours, and my sister Frankie, who's blind, would chime in an hour into a conversation about race and be like 'wait, Quincy's black?'" Farrow recalled as Fallon, and the audience, reacted with a big chuckle.

"Still haven't told her what color I am," the 26-year-old quipped.

Jokes aside—for a brief moment—Farrow recalled enrolling in college at age eleven but jokingly admitted that he was "so young, so drunk."

"You've got it together man," the funnyman told Mia Farrow's son after he spoke about attending law school at age sixteen and his extensive political background.

"I'm just following your footsteps, this was all a plan to become second fiddle to you," Farrow responded.
