    Maya Rudolph stopped by "The Tonight Show" to dish on her new variety show. Also, Jimmy Fallon helped the comedienne come up with new characters with a pile of random professional head shots.

    "The Maya Rudolph Show" will premiere Monday, May 19 at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.

    Rudolph said the show is based on the classic format created by duos like Sonny & Cher, and Donny & Marie.

    "I'm going to sing, there's an opening number, there's a live animal, my dress rips away, there's plate spinning guy, there's children, it's nuts, things explode," Rudolph joked.

    Andy Samberg, Kristen Bell, Fred Armisen, Chris Parnell, Craig Robinson and Sean Hayes are set to be guests.

    Then, the two "Saturday Night Live" alums created new characters out of random head shots.

    Watch the two create the wild personalities above.
