It's amazing how many times we've seen people from El Paso, Texas appear on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. We've even had one appear on the show as recently as 2024; so here's a look back at how many times El Paso was referenced or mentioned on Jimmy Fallon's show.

Here are some El Paso natives that appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon

Laura Reyes, a proud El Paso native, was invited to appear on the show during their segment "Freestylin' With the Roots" back in June 2024. She was able to come up with some amazing bars about her...worst road trip that involved her family & no A/C in the car.

Another El Paso that ended up...freestyling on the show was Julio Ortega. He appeared on the show on October 26, 2020. Sadly the video has been made private but you can read about his time on the show here. Julio is also the same guy who had a video go viral from him performing music with a cat. You can see some celebrities react to it here.

El Paso once got a shout out thanks to Questlove

Back in 2018, the drummer from The Roots, Questlove, literally gave El Paso a shout out on The Tonight Show! People were excited that they shared it on Twitter,

By the way, Questlove HAS been to El Paso before, so this wasn't just a random act of kindness. No he knows he has love here, and we love him too...

One of El Paso's biggest musical artists, Khalid, has been on the show

Of course Khalid would make tv appearances; he has performed "Love Lies" on the show & explained how his time in El Paso, Texas became the inspiration for his song, "Location", on Jimmy's show.

Even local politics & local politicians have been referenced on Jimmy Fallon's show

Remember when El Paso's Beto O'Rourke announced he was going to run for president in 2020? We do & so did Jimmy. He even got the look & act down I'd say...

It's just a matter of time before El Paso makes another "guest" appearance on tv, let alone The Tonight Show. When they do, we'll be watching!
