Jimmy Fallon Treats 'Tonight Show' Staffers to Burgers and Booze
Jimmy Fallon is one helluva of a talk show host, and apparently, a pretty cool boss too. According to Page Six, the Tonight Show host treated more than 100 members of his staff to a feast of burgers and rounds of booze for all their hard work on his Emmy-nominated show.
The gossip column reports Fallon, 39, and approximately 120 of his staffers were recently spotted at Bar 13 in Manhattan, where the comedian and serial impersonator "took to the mike to graciously thank all the members of his team for their success.” In addition to free drinks, the father-of-one reportedly had Pop Burger send over "hundreds of cheeseburgers and onion rings.”
Fallon's Tonight Show garnered six Emmy nods in its first year, including one for Outstanding Variety Series. Jimmy sent out this tweet upon receiving the news.
So happy to be nominated for an Emmy this morning. And even happier to have an excuse for the champagne I was already drinking at 9am.The 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by Seth Meyers, airs August 25th on NBC.
