In his first season on "SNL," he performed memorable impressions including Adam Sandler, Jerry Seinfeld, Harry Connick, Jr., John Lennon, Marilyn Manson and Howard Stern. Additionally, his popular holiday-themed parodies of pop hits on "Weekend Update" have included musical impressions of Alanis Morissette, Eminem, Madonna and Ricky Martin. In addition, Fallon appears as a member of the overexcited "Gatos Picantes" mariachi band in the recurring "How Do You Say…Ah, Yes…Show."

Fallon is currently filming a role in Cameron Crowe's ("Jerry Maguire," "Say Anything") next feature film.

Fallon began his comedy career at 17 when he took the stage at a local club and won a "Best Impressionist" contest. He has performed stand-up, characters and impressions across the country with regular appearances at The Improv in Los Angeles and Caroline's Comedy Club in New York, to name a few.
