Nate Bargatze & Jimmy Fallon.

Jimmy Fallon's Trying Out New Stand-Up Opening For Nate Bargatze

Over the last couple of years, comedians Nate Bargatze & Jimmy Fallon have been forming a solid friendship as seen from Bargatze's repetitive appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Their bond has now gone to another level beyond rubbing shoulders at 30 Rock in New York City. The Tennessee Kid this past weekend brought out the late night host & fellow comic out to his shows on the headlining Be Funny Tour as a surprise opener.

Joining them at these shows were Nate's friends & brilliant comics Julian McCullough, Mike James, Joe Zimmerman, & Steven Rogers.

Jimmy Fallon shares new stand-up in the works.

In this week's opening monologue on The Tonight Show, Jimmy went into detail about this past weekend's shows with Nate in Syracuse & Albany over in Upstate New York. Fallon jokes when trying out new material for crowds of 12,000, "this is where you go to try out new material." And he actually toured with the Nateland crew joining them on their buses over night.

Fallon's appearance in Albany was a homecoming for him as he got to visit his old college, the College of Saint Rose. He even revisited his old apartment & crashed a frat party he shares.

These shows appeared to be going back in time for Fallon as he explains how he was "going over [his] ten minutes over and over for hours" sitting in his hotel room before the shows.

Fans can tell by now that Fallon really is working out new stand-up material since this follows his first time making an appearance at Bargatze's shows this past January as well as a previous surprise stint with Chris Rock at the New York Comedy Cellar this past October.

He closed his monologue saying, "I'm going to do it again. I want to go back." We're keeping our eyes peeled for new stand-up comedy from Jimmy!
