My friends at The Laugh Factory uploaded videos of a young Jimmy Fallon, before he was on Saturday Night Live, performing stand-up on their West Hollywood stage in 1996. Would you like to take a look? Here is Fallon doing an early version of his bit with celebrity impersonations promoting the Troll dolls. With a Troll doll as a prop! Roll the clip.
Cut to now-ish. Or at least post-SNL but pre-Late Night. Fallon is famous. Touring theaters. And still, a couple of years ago, might still be known to break out the Troll doll bit for you. Here's what it looked like with a decade of polish and a crowd of adoring fans. Take Two!
