Jimmy Fallon closes Just for Laughs

Steals the show at festival's second Toronto edition

TORONTO -- The second annual Just for Laughs Toronto Festival wrapped over the weekend, with future NBC talk show host Jimmy Fallon stealing the show Saturday night with his impressions of JFL alumni.

Fallon, who is set to host "Late Night" beginning next year, slipped seamlessly into the voices of Sarah Silverman, Jerry Seinfeld, Robin Williams, Norm MacDonald, Bill Maher, Adam Sandler, Chris Rock and Bill Cosby.

Other Toronto standouts included Craig Robinson ("The Office"), Jason Alexander, Elon Gold and Martin Short, who brought out his Ed Grimley and Jiminy Glick characters.

The JFL's Toronto run also included first-time club dates and a return of street theater, with troupes from the U.K., France, Italy, Spain, Canada and the Netherlands.
