JIMMY Fallon is getting demanding!

The funnyman hates hose flashing “APPLAUSE” signs NBC bosses hung overhead on the revamped Tonight Show set — and wants them gone, a source said.

“Jimmy was furious when he found out about the signs,” an insider said.

“He complained to execs and flatly said, ‘I don’t want them!’ He’s adamant about not using any ‘sweeteners’ because he likes the audience’s responses to be real in every sense — even insisting there be NO laugh tracks.

“NBC went ahead and installed the signs anyway, claiming all talk shows have them.

“But Jimmy’s clout’s growing along with his ratings, so it’ll be just a matter of time before he’ll be applauding their total removal!”

Recent reports claimed Jimmy insisted to his bosses at NBC that his Tonight Show audience gets to sit on the “most comfortable seats any talk show has ever had” — and he got his wish.

“NBC paid a bundle for custom-made red leather seats,” a source said.

“Each cushion costs more than $1,500. People go crazy over those seats. They’re amazing!”

Live, from Lake Michigan, it’s Swimmy Fallon!

It was a frigid Oscar morning for Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon who answered a challenge from Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to take a dip in Lake Michigan to benefit the city’s Special Olympics.

Fallon, 39, had asked Emanuel to join him as a guest on his new NBC show, but the steely mayor, a former White House chief of staff and friend of President Barack Obama, threw down the gauntlet and agreed – only if the comedian would participate in the annual “Polar Plunge,” the Chicago Tribune reported.

With temps at 10 degrees Sunday and water temperatures at about 32 degrees, it was a test of courage for both men, but a challenge Fallon couldn’t pass up when Emanuel taunted him to “toughen up.”

Fallon RSVP’d Monday for the event on Twitter: “Okay @Rahm Emanuel. I’m in. Lake Michigan will have a New York fish this weekend #SwimmyFallon.”

Fallon later said he’d take his icy dip wearing a suit and tie, and encouraged his fans to “show solidarity by wearing a necktie. (I’m not telling you what else to wear.)”

The mayor, known for his spicy repartee, said no to the business attire.

“A little advice from a city that knows how to handle winter: leave the suit at home,” Emanuel Tweeted. Fallon, however, did not, braving the waters all dressed up in his hosting apparel.

Emanuel agreed to his own plunge after Chicago students answered his challenge to read 2 million books over the summer.

Fallon made his way Sunday morning through the snow, posting Instagram pics. He later bragged of his icy accomplishment: “Officially PLUNGED!!!!! Thank you Chicago!!! Thank you Mayor. #polarplunge #coldneverbotheredmeanyway #frozen.”
