Rate this Stand up comedian out of 5: Jay Leno?

Jay Leno can be described as "The common sense comedian" the comic for the common man. Leno began his career in night clubs, where he worked 300 nights a year before hitting it big in 1992 with his own late-night talk show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992). By that time he had appeared on television, acted in a few films (American Hot Wax (1978)) but hit paydirt with his late-night television appearances (he made a record number of visits to Late Night with David Letterman (1982)); for several years, he served as Johnny Carson's permanent guest host on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962). In 2009, after 17 years as host and an Emmy, Leno handed the show to Conan O'Brien. But, only a few months later, NBC caused controversy by bringing Leno back as host and bumping O'Brien. Leno left The Tonight Show when his contracted ended in 2014.

  • If I had to pick one favorite comedian of all time, I would pick Jay Leno. I watched him on the Tonight Show for many years growing up. I liked his monologue, Jaywalking, Iron Jay, and his other skits better than the segments with the celebrities' interviews.
    I thought he was funny, but not mean spirited like many comedians are today.
