President Obama to Appear on Jimmy Fallon’s ‘Tonight Show’ for First Time

President Barack Obama will join Jimmy Fallon for late-night antics for the first time since 2012.

NBC said President Obama will appear on its “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” for the first time, on Thursday, June 9. Obama previously appeared with Fallon during the comedian’s tenure on NBC’s “Late Night” – and then, it was during a special broadcast from the campus of the University of North Carolina. During that cameo, the President helped Fallon “slow-jam” the news in a memorable bit.

Obama appeared on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” in March of last year.

His cameo on the venerable NBC late-night franchise is just the latest example of the wee-hours programs courting politicians during election season. Fallon has already enlisted Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in sketches. Rival Stephen Colbert has had memorable exchanges with Vice President Joseph Biden, among others.
