Video: Fallon's Fresh Prince Homage Opens Tonight Show's L.A. Run

This is a story all about how Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show got flipped-turned upside down.

To celebrate a week of shows broadcast from sunny Los Angeles, the host with the most paid homage to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air‘s title sequence, with the help of no less than Carlton himself (aka Dancing With the Stars champ Alfonso Ribeiro) and frequent Fresh Prince guest star DJ Jazzy Jeff.

The parody helped usher in the late-night talker’s first trip to the Left Coast since Jay Leno handed the Tonight Show over to Fallon last February.

Coincidentally, the Fresh Prince himself, Will Smith, is scheduled to appear on the show Thursday night, to tout his upcoming film, Focus.

    It was so great to have The Tonight Show back in L.A. when Leno took over during his tenure.

    Hey Ryan did I see uncle Phil in that clip. I know he died two Christmases ago. Or was it someone that looked like him

    I’ve always preferred Conan to all the other night shows but Jimmy is really growing on me, he’s genuinely funny & super talented.
