In January, Comedian and talk show host Jimmy Fallon visited Puerto Rico with his friend Lin-Manuel Miranda. Fallon taped The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on the island because Miranda was also there for a special Hamilton theater run. Fallon said his trip to Puerto Rico wasn’t just a TV special because the visit ended up changing his life. If you saw the episode, you’ll understand why. Fallon was all over the island, talking to people, eating Puerto Rican food, dancing in the streets and truly embracing Puerto Rican culture.
On May 3, Fallon talked about his experience in PR at a panel in Los Angeles and also got emotional as he recalled how special it was for him. “It was a game-changer for me, it changed my life,” Fallon said, according to the Hollywood Reporter, who described the late-night host as tearing up as he talked about it. “People are so grateful that we went down there, I can’t even talk about it, it’s crazy. They were like, ‘You remember us, you remember that we exist.’”
