If you've followed the Orlando comedy scene for a couple of years, you probably remember Sean Finnerty, the Irish transplant who frequented open mics and showcases around town. The native of County Longford, Ireland, moved to New York a few years ago to pursue the life of a professional comic, and tonight he's getting a big chance. Finnerty's been invited to appear on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon tonight, alongside Black Panther's Michael B. Jordan and How I Met Your Mother's Colbie Smulders. The episode airs tonight at 11:35 p.m. on NBC.

You can catch Finnerty when he returns to Orlando next week for a homecoming show at the Orlando Improv at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 16. Tickets are on sale now.
