The funnyman has entertained fans for two decades as host “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” When not in the host’s seat in Hollywood, he’s touring the world with his stand-up act, something he’s loved doing since his earliest days in comedy clubs in the mid-’70s.
The stand-up comedian made his first appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson” on March 2, 1977, and a decade later was named permanent guest host.
In 1992, Leno became the host of the NBC late show.
