Jimmy Fallon bringing his 'Tonight Show' to Universal Studios




Modern talk shows have a long-standing tradition of taking their act on the road to broadcast from foreign cities. Remember Dave in L.A., Conan in Toronto, Kimmel in Detroit? Not one to be left out, Jimmy Fallon is packing up NBC's Tonight Show for a stint of tapings in Orlando - specifically, at Universal Studios, where the waters of corporate synergy are always warm and relaxing. June 16 through June 19 (the same week Universal's Wizarding World of Harry Potter debuts its coming Diagon Alley attraction to the media) Fallon will play tourist with guests including but not limited to Tracy Morgan, Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull.

Tickets for the Orlando Tonight Show run will be released later this week via the program's website. Can you imagine the thrill of watching Jimmy Fallon play butter beer pong in real time with Tracy Morgan and the Grinch before the video goes viral? Finally, a story you can tell your lousy cynical life-hating grandkids!
