Jimmy Fallon was born on September 19, 1974, in the Bay Ridge neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. Fallon attended St. Mary of the Snow, a Roman Catholic school. He was an altar boy in school and for a time considered being a priest. Fallon outgrew his religious ambition when he started getting more into comedy via listening to the Dr. Demento show on the radio. Like many teenagers, Fallon became obsessed with Saturday Night Live.
He and his sister acted out sketches from the show for their parents and friends. At Saugerties High School, he was a performer in most of the stage productions during his four years of high school. He graduated from Saugerties High School in 1992. Fallon attended The College of Saint Rose in Albany, New York. On weekends, he performed stand-up comedy. He left college a semester before graduating in 1995 to move to Los Angeles at age 21 to pursue a comedy career full-time.
In Los Angeles, Jimmy joined The Groundlings improv group and started polishing his standup act. He often did stand-up at the legendary Improv, for which he was paid $7.50 per set, which didn’t even cover the cost of parking at the Improv. Fallon auditioned for Saturday Night Live for the first time in 1997 but was unsuccessful. Fallon landed his second audition for SNL at the age of 23. SNL auditions are notoriously intimidating and difficult. At the audition, he was told by a number of people that creator Lorne Michaels pretty much never laughed during auditions. Fallon went onstage and did well. He performed a “celebrity walk-a-thon” sketch with impressions of well-known comedians including Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock. Michaels laughed. He was hired as a cast member for the 1998-1999 season. Fallon became the program’s most featured impressionist.

Fallon met film producer Nancy Juvonen co-owner (alongside Drew Barrymore) of Flower Films on the set of his movie Fever Pitch. They began dating in May 2007.

They have two daughters, Winnie Rose and Francis Cole, as well as a golden retriever named Gary Frick. Gary has appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Before his marriage, Fallon was chosen for People Magazine’s 50 Most Eligible Bachelors. Fallon was chosen as one of the 50 Most Beautiful People in the World in 2002 by People Magazine.

Jimmy’s first real estate purchase was an $850,000 one-bedroom condo in New York City that he purchased in 2002. He bought the apartment at the urging of SNL producer Lorne Michaels. Jimmy has later revealed he could not actually afford the purchase back in 2002, but he wisely followed Lorne’s advice. After he married Nancy Juvonen, they began buying up neighboring units. For example, in 2014 they paid $725,000 for a top-floor studio apartment. The purchase in the nine-story, roughly 35-unit building was in addition to a purchase a few months earlier of a one-bedroom apartment next door to the studio for $1.35 million. Over time they combined the units to create a six-bedroom, 5,000 square-foot apartment. Their total spend on five apartments was $5.8 million. In March 2021, Jimmy and Nancy listed their complex for $15 million. Within the next year, the home sold to actress Cara Delevingne in a reported $10.8 million deal. Fallon and his wife also own a home in the Hamptons, located in Sagaponack. It’s a 3,500-square-foot farmhouse-style home built in the 1800s. They bought it in 2011 for $5.7 million.
