It’s the five-year anniversary of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon! In honor of the occasion, we sat down with the late night host to pick his brain about all the wonderful things that have gone down on his show in the past half decade. To celebrate the occasion, the Tonight Show invited different ambassadors of important social causes to appear each night this week through February 18th.
