Late-night host and comic Jimmy Fallon was born on September 19, 1974, in Brooklyn, New York. Fallon first started performing stand-up comedy in high school and later dropped out of college to pursue his comedy career. In 1998, Fallon landed his dream job, joining the cast of Saturday Night Live. Fallon left the show in 2004. Five years later, he launched his own successful program, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. In April 2013, it was announced that Fallon will take over for Jay Leno as host of The Tonight Show. He debuted as the new host of the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on February 17, 2014.

In the late 1990s, Fallon moved back to New York and fulfilled a lifelong dream. He got a chance to audition for his favorite show, Saturday Night Live. Meeting with co-creator and producer Lorne Michaels, Fallon won him over with his impression of Adam Sandler. He joined the show’s cast for the 1998-1999 season, which also featured Will Ferrell, Tracy Morgan and Molly Shannon.

During his time on the show, Fallon became known for his impressions. He took on such famous names as Robert De Niro, John Lennon, Chris Rock and Mick Jagger. As for original characters, Fallon brought to life a diverse mix of personalities. There was a snotty department store clerk, a boy-band member and a sullen Boston teen, among others. Fallon also co-hosted the show’s recurring news sketch “Weekend Update” with Tina Fey. The duo proved to be a popular pairing with the show’s fans.

In 2008, Fallon landed a challenging, high-profile role. NBC announced that the young comedian would be taking over Conan O’Brien’s late-night talk show the following year. He was under a lot of pressure when his show, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, first aired in March 2009. His first guests included Robert De Niro and Justin Timberlake.

While he initially received mixed reviews, Fallon eventually became a popular late-night host. His boyish charm and quirky spoofs and stunts won over audiences. In addition to interviews and monologues, Fallon has done comedy segments, including playing games with guests and making humorous videos.

In April 2013, it was announced that he will become the new host of The Tonight Show, after Jay Leno’s contract expires. The show moved its tapings from Los Angeles to New York when Fallon assumed his new position. The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon debuted on February 17, 2014. “I just want to do the best I can,” he said. “And take care of the show for a while.”

In addition to his Late Night duties, Fallon will make his debut as the host of the Golden Globe Awards on January 8, 2017.
