Jimmy Fallon Net Worth & Salary
Jimmy Fallon net worth is $60 million, and he earned a staggering $15 million in 2018. In his early career, he was the original drummer of The Horace Silver Quintet from 1988 to 1990.
He also has been part of the cast for SNL since 1998 until 2004 when Lorne Michaels fired him because they wanted someone who would work harder at it than Jimmy did, which made sense as NBC thought so too.
After that, he wrote some sketches during the 2003-2004 season and then went back on Saturday Night Live as host starting with the 2005-2006 season where he stayed there for five years before taking over the Late Night show after Conan O’Brien left following the 2009 Tonight Show conflict which happened between Jay Leno and David Letterman.
Jimmy Fallon was born on September 19, 1974, in Brooklyn. His father was an Emmy Award-winning media executive. His mother was a teacher of children with disabilities who also worked as Fallon’s agent before she died from brain cancer when he was only 17 years old.
He studied at Saint Ann’s School, a private school on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, where he began performing standup comedy in 1989. In 1990, Fallon made his first television appearance performing sketch comedy for The Entertainment Tonight Show (later known simply as ET).
In 1991, he performed alongside Kennedys’ singer Maxi Priest during Regis Philbin’s “Regis And Kathy Lee” show and became well known after appearing on Saturday Night Live in 1995. Jimmy Fallon managed The College of Saint Rose in Albany, NY, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in Communications from the College of Saint Rose.
In 1998 Fallon co-hosted short-lived talk show “The Mike and Maty Show” with comedian Michael Ian Black on MTV for two months before it was canceled due to low ratings.
He also had a cameo as an advertising executive in one episode of HBO’s hit comedy Sex And The City later that year. In 2000, Fallon became a cast member on Saturday Night Live (SNL) after Lorne Michaels asked him when he would be returning to New York–Fallon said SNL, but Michaels replied, no, you’re staying at 30 Rockefeller Center!
Carrer Of Jimmy Fallon
So in Los Angeles, jimmy joined the groundlings, a local improv group that has developed many other SNL cast members. He performed with Toofer, who had been urged to take the fall-guy role for Saturday Night Live but was too shy and preferred performing behind his drum kit in The Groundlings.
Fallon then took over as head writer of “The Tonight Show” from 1992 until 2004, when he left to focus on his own show. In 1999, Fallon became co-host of NBC’s sketch comedy program “Late Night,” along with comedians Tina Fey and Horatio Sanz;
This trio would later be called “The New Three Amigos.” Late Night made few waves during its early years–high ratings were never achieved because it aired opposite ABC’s popular family drama Brothers.
At first, Jimmy Fallon got an idea that he would follow in Drew Carey’s footsteps. In 2004, he was given a chance to take over “The Tonight Show” from Jay Leno, but when NBC executives saw that Fallon would be taking a break for five months in 2007 to film his new movie The Rocker, they decided not to offer him the position permanently.
However, since 2009 Jimmy Fallon has been hosting Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on NBC and is also now known as one of America’s funniest actors- both live on stage and in movies such as Fever Pitch or Taxi.
