American television has tons of talk shows by famous people like Jimmy Kimmel and Jon Stewart but the only one that most Indians log on to is The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. This Emmy and Grammy winner is definitely showing the world how clean dinner-table humour can also be hilarious. Gags, games and the outstanding Lip-Sync Battle (have you seen the latest with Will Ferrell?), Fallon has astutely become both a TV and Youtube sensation, reaching out to his fans worldwide.
Fallon began his TV career with Saturday Night Live in 1998, and soon became an audience favourite. Known for his spot-on impressions, hilarious sketches and his stint with Tina Fey as co-anchor of the ‘Weekend Update’ segment, Fallon spent six successful years on the show. Then, to keep the laughter going, he started his hit talk show, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, which introduced us to his multi-talented personality and Fallon’s unique ability to bring the fun side out of even the most serious of guests – he made Morgan Freeman talk with helium. Beat that. Witty and satirical at times, the show is wholesome and healthy entertainment. Wait. We almost forgot. It also stars the award-winning house band, The Roots.
