Who are you ? Who is Jimmy Fallon as a show?” Image Credit: Brian Bowen Smith | NBC In that moment, Fallon realized he did not have a good answer. Sure, he had ideas for what would be in his show — the silly games and unbridled joy that would come to define his brand. But why should someone care about him ?
