Jimmy Fallon….the Author

Jimmy is not only a comedian, actor and entertainer, but he is also an author.

In 2003, Jimmy and his sister, Gloria, wrote a book called “I Hate This Place: The Pessimist’s Guide to Life“.


Amazon description:
“From the Grammy-nominated star of Saturday Night Live and his equally talented sister comes a hysterically cynical look at life through a glass half empty. IHATETHISPLACE is the book for anyone who’s ever tired of crossing to the sunny side of the street, looking for that elusive pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, or reading self-help books that are meant to bring peace and prosperity. Guaranteed to shatter illusions, extinguish all hope, and keep the jaded and the disgruntled laughing all the way, it is filled with such daily ‘affirmations’ as ‘If you don’t have anything nice to say, welcome to the club,’ and advice like ‘Knock, and the door shall be slammed in your face.’ Rife with the wit and wisdom of Jimmy Fallon and his sister Gloria, this book promises to tickle the funny bone of the pessimist in everyone.”

His second book is a children’s book entitled “Snowball Fight“. (2007) The words are familiar as they mimic the lyrics to his song also by the name.


Amazon Description: “It’s a snow day, and school is closed! The typical snow day activities follow in rhyming text. There is one last snowball saved for future use at the end of the day!”
