Born September 19, 1974 in New York City, Jimmy Fallon is an American comedian, actor, producer and television host. After studying at St. Mary of the Snow and Saugerties High School, Jimmy, whose real name is James Thomas Fallon Jr. began to perform in the biggest clubs in the United States where he multiplied improvisations.

In 1998, he joined Saturday Night Live and within a few years he became a key figure on the show thanks to his sketches, celebrity impersonations and other news pastiches. He finally left Saturday Night Live in 2002 to create his own show, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

Broadcast daily in the third half of the evening on the American television channel NBC, it gives him the opportunity to “make his show” alongside prestigious guests such as Tina Fey, Jon Bon Jovi, Cameron Diaz, or Justin Timberlake.

In June 2012, he released a humorous album Blow your pants off which includes parodies and songs that he performed in Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Since the beginning of 2014, we find him in the place of Jay Leno on the set of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

In terms of private life, Jimmy Fallon now lives in New York City with his granddaughter and his partner, Nancy Juvonen, a company producer.
