Jimmy Fallon Among Us Stream Details: How to Watch, Who’s in It, More
It isn’t every day that we see some major celebrities host a live stream for a video game, but it is becoming common these days. The latest one is Jimmy Fallon, host of The Tonight Show, who will be playing Among Us soon. Here’s everything you need to know about the Jimmy Fallon Among Us stream.
Jimmy Fallon Is Hosting an Among Us Stream
Jimmy Fallon is no stranger to video games, frequently flirting with the medium in The Tonight Show. After all, he was the talk show host who had the honor of being one of the first-ever to show off the Nintendo Switch when it had just been announced in 2016.
During that time, he was able to have the one and only Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto on the show and other well-known Nintendo icons. As such, it is no surprise that Fallon is now making a move over to Twitch for a more mainstream live stream if we’ve ever seen one.
The Jimmy Fallon Among Us stream will feature not just him playing the viral online multiplayer whodunnit game but also with some rather familiar faces. Among Us has become a popular game for appealing to a wide range of celebrities and personalities for its simplistic but fun gameplay.
The general premise is that one or more players in the group of up to 10 players total will be an imposter. That imposter(s) will then have the job of killing off the entire crew before they are discovered, while the crewmates have the job of surviving long enough to get their tasks done and win.
It is a highly popular game with gameplay that works well on PC, mobile, and now console with the Nintendo Switch version released in the past. This seems like a perfect time to host this stream, too, since the Airship map just launched in Among Us.
How to Watch the Jimmy Fallon Among Us Event
If you are interested in watching the Jimmy Fallon Among Us stream and seeing The Tonight Show host take on the Airship map in the game for the first time live, there are a few ways that you will be able to enjoy the stream that we know of currently.
For one, it will kick off at around 3:45 p.m. PT (6:45 p.m. ET) today, Tuesday, April 6, when the host and his various guests will begin their murder mystery extravaganza. It is currently unknown how long the live stream will go, but we don’t expect it to be much longer than an hour or so, so you will likely have a short window of time to get in there while it is happening.
If you are interested in watching the Jimmy Fallon Among Us stream live, you will want to head on over to the official Jimmy Fallon Twitch channel. It is live already at the time of writing this, but there is no content just yet.
We imagine that some of the various guests will be streaming the content live on their channels, but that is something that we will have to wait and see for now. However, this is in the middle of the workday for some fans, which could be a problem for watching.
There is the chance that the past broadcast will show up on Fallon’s Twitch channel or one of the other guests, so you will be able to watch there. However, Fallon isn’t just streaming for no reason, as shown on The Tonight Show next week. You can likely watch there on the TV show or the YouTube channel later on.
Who’s in It and Other Details
The Jimmy Fallon Among Us stream will be awesome not just for Fallon showing off his detective and murder skills live in the game but for the impressive lineup of guests that will be there. He will be joined in the stream by Tariq Trotter, Questlove from The Roots, Kirk Douglas, and two stars of the hit Netflix show Stranger Things.
One of the stars of the trippy 80’s-set horror show, Will, played by Noah Schnapp, will be in the stream playing along with co-star Gates Matarazzo who plays Dustin in the show. They will be joined by some gaming personalities that you may know well already.
The Among Us community director Victoria Tran will appear along with massive streamers like Corpse Husband, Valkyrae, and Sykkuno. With so many people involved, there will likely be multiple games throughout the stream, with players rotating around so that everyone can participate and have a chance to appear on stream.
Fallon isn’t trying to make some money off his Twitch debut stream directly. He will accept donations for the nonprofit Feeding America, dedicated to food banks across the U.S., while the Among Us stream is happening.
The Jimmy Fallon Among Us stream is a pretty huge moment for the multiplayer title and gaming in general as we now have an even more mainstream, noteworthy appearance of it for a wider audience. However, this is far from the first event of this level. We have seen similar moments for Fortnite in the past and even Among Us.
In the past, we have seen real-life politicians like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez streaming Among Us with Corpse, Valkyrae, and more. These will likely be the last events of this ilk, so we expect to see more mainstream celebrities, actors, politicians, and more playing games live in the future.
