Jimmy Fallon is one of the most popular comedic geniuses of the time and his fan base spans quite a few generations. Some people have a natural funny gene and Jimmy Fallon is one of them. He has been entertaining since the age of 17, when he first took the stage at Bananas Comedy Club in Poughkeepsie, New York in 1991. Fallon rose through the comedic ranks quickly, going from stand-up comedian to featured player on Saturday Night Live (September 1998). In 2009, Fallon landed a challenging, high-profile role.
