Jimmy Fallon was born on Sept. 19, 1974, in Brooklyn and raised upstate in Saugerties, near Woodstock. Legend has it that young Jimmy attempted his first impression at age two. Later, his parents were utterly delighted by his prepubescent take on Jimmy Cagney. At 12, this stand-up guy began his formal standup career, at no less a venue than the Bananas comedy club in Poughkeepsie.


Jimmy Fallon is best known to television fans for his work on NBC’s seminal late night series Saturday Night Live. Since becoming a regular cast member in 1998, Fallon has become an audience favorite for his dead-on impressions and his quick wit as the host of Weekend Update newscasts. Fallon left the show after the 2003-2004 season.
