Funny man James Thomas “Jimmy” Fallon has seen his career experience a meteoric rise. Fallon got his big break in 1998 when he landed the job of his dreams: Cast member on Saturday Night Live. Fallon spent much of his childhood obsessing over the show, watching taped episodes of the parts his parents allowed him to watch (the PG-rated sections). He developed a talent for celebrity impressions early on, which helped him eventually win his spot on SNL. Fallon spent several years on the show, refining his talent and securing his continuing slot in the show as the main feature on the show’s popular sketch, “Weekend Update”. When Fallon left the show, he did a run through several movies, making millions with his comedic flair. At the height of his career, he landed a slot that is even more prominent than anything he had done so far: Host of the The Tonight Show. In replacing long-time host Jay Leno, Fallon continues to have large shoes to fill. Reviews of his success have been mixed, but are overall positive.
