This morning, CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 WHTZ (Z100)/NEW YORK and syndicated star ELVIS DURAN fans heard JIMMY FALLON invite DURAN to be a guest on LATE NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON. DURAN questioned his motives to which FALLON said, "I’m a fan of the show and I really want you to come on -- I want people to know who you are, where you come from."
DURAN said, "But keep in mind, I’m a radio guy," as he expressed suspicion about FALLON's SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE character, JOEY MAC THE DJ. "I know you based that character on me and making fun of radio guys."
FALLON explained that, "it’s just a weird coincidence," and that he based the character on the small market radio station personalities he met while on the stand-up comic circuit. FALLON said, "Everyone was a wanna-be HOWARD STERN, like DIRTY DAN AND THE GARBAGE MAN. It's six in the morning and they do dirty jokes and try to get you to say something embarrassing about yourself."
DURAN will appear on LATE NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON on WEDNESDAY, APRIL 27th.
