Fallon writes his ‘Thank You Notes’

NBC latenight host has new book due in May

Jimmy Fallon can now add author to his resume.

NBC’s latenight host is set to release two books titled “Thank You Notes,” based on the comedy bit segments that air Fridays on his chatfest. From Grand Central Publishing, the first tome will be released May 23; the second will arrive in stores in spring 2012.

“Thank You Notes” will address more than 150 subjects in need of Fallon’s undying gratitude, and each page will feature one of Fallon’s special notes and a photograph of the recipient. From sweater vests and adult mittens, to his dad, to a light bulb he is too lazy to replace, the book will incorporate many of the subjects that help fuel Fallon’s comedy bits.

“Jimmy’s keen sense of humor and wry wit really shine in these segments, and we are very excited to bring them to the fans in a collection of books,” said Kim Niemi, senior VP at NBC Universal Television Consumer Products Group.
