Watch 17-Year-Old Jimmy Fallon's First Stand-Up Performance And See How Far He's Come

Now that Jimmy Fallon has officially taken over "The Tonight Show," there's no better time to revisit his first-ever stand-up performance at the age of 17.

Watch the video above to see young Fallon compete in an impression competition at Bananas Comedy Club (side note: best name ever) in Poughkeepsie, NY around 1991.

Fallon grew up in nearby Saugerties, NY and was inspired to create this bit featuring various celebrities auditioning for a Troll doll commercial after receiving one with a graduation cap in his senior year of high school.

Watch him do his (once) best John Travolta, Cliff Clavin, Bullwinkle Moose and more impressions above.
