Jimmy Fallon Overview
Although he did try his luck in film, Jimmy is a television name, cast, and eventually the main host to three household talk show programs, namely Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.
Before rising to stardom, Jimmy, early in his life and career, knew that he had a knack for performing in front of an audience, and in high school and college, he would perform in front of people. These saw him deliver stand-up comedy, whilst directing and performing stage plays in college. In his pursuit of a lifelong dream to appear on Saturday Night Live, he decided not to finish his degree and made a gamble by going to California. There he was able to land some comedy gigs. However, he remained adamant in his pursuit of a career in Saturday Night Live. Unfazed by any previously failed auditions, finally he performed successful impersonations of Adam Sandler and Chris Rock. This eventually impressed Saturday Night Live creator, Lorne Michaels, and he became part of the cast. With his growing following, his popularity grew even more. His niche in the show was imitations of particular film characters such as Adam Sandler. After 6 years in Saturday Night Live, Jimmy pursued a career in the genre of romantic comedy films. However, film critics were quick to shoot him down for his acting in the films Taxi and Fever Pitch, where he starred with Hollywood celebrity, Drew Barrymore.
His failure in film would pave the way for his popularity as a talk show host. In 2009, he was the star host for his own show, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and worked his style and craft to great success. His talk show included singing and dancing, impersonations, games, and other less serious segments. This fired up an unprecedented following, especially as he made friends with rising singing stars, including Justin Timberlake. Because of his success, in 2014, he suited up to become the sixth host of the Tonight Show under the name Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
