One of late night TV's leading men, Jimmy Fallon, is celebrating his birthday today. The Tonight Show entertainer and Saturday Night Live alum is turning 42, and we're kicking off his big day with 11 of his funniest moments on TV.
The newly minted 42-year-old got us hooked on his impressions and comedy when he first joined the SNL cast in 1998. In 2009 he took over Late Night and subsequently became the face of The Tonight Show in 2014. Fallon and career are unstoppable—and he's got the Emmy Awards to prove it!
Not only has Fallon sung the History of Rap with his equally funny counterpart, Justin Timberlake, a grand total of six times, he's rubbed shoulders with some of Hollywood's biggest stars, from Ariana Grande to Jennifer Lopez, Taylor Swift, and 2016 presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton.
Aside from Fallon's success on television, he has an even more important job at home: being a parent to daughters Winnie Rose and Frances Cole, along with his film-producer wife, Nancy Juvonen.
