    Comedian Jay Leno raised 50,000 for and donated a $36,000 fully equipped ambulance to United Hatzalah at a sold-out special concert fundraiser for Israel’s largest volunteer EMS service at the Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York on Sunday. The former Tonight Show host performed a long comedy set and called Eli Beer, the founder and president of the organization, up to the stage after his act, telling him: “What you guys are doing is so special, I am so proud to be here and be part of it. I have 117 motorcycles in my collection but none of my...

    Jay Leno sees a small silver lining in the recent collapse of U.S.-backed Mideast peace talks: It should make his job just a little easier when he performs in front of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu later this month. "I guess any American that's not John Kerry is more than welcome there right now," Leno said.

    Rush Limbaugh and other conservatives have expressed bewilderment over CBS’s abandonment of the “American Heartland” by choosing Colbert to replace Letterman. Ed Driscoll has contrasted the pick with the Letterman and Leno succession battle. But the real lesson of that battle is that while Leno won on performance, beating Letterman in the ratings, Letterman won on image, retiring as an honored figure, despite his abusive behavior, while Leno was booed out the door Leno is no conservative, but he left with the baffled bewilderment familiar to many on the right of being the better man who is despised for his...

    "Ten years ago, I received a letter from a man named Bob Shotwell who lived in a small town in Minnesota. He knew that I liked old cars from watching me on television. And he wanted to give me one. He recalled that he asked his father for a car as he was about to graduate from high school in the early 1930s. But his dad replied that if he wanted a car, he should build one. So, 17-year-old Bob scrounged parts and made his own car. It was a little three-wheeled coupe powered by a 77.2-cu.-in. four-cylinder 1931 Indian...

    Congratulations to President Obama on being reelected president of the United States. Turns out it is not all bad news for the Republicans. It seems that depression is covered by Obamacare. As Jay Leno nears the end of his nearly 22-year run as the host of The Tonight Show, the lantern-jawed comic with the thick Boston accent finds himself in an unusual predicament. Having won the War of Johnny Carson’s Succession (1992), successfully fended off a challenge from upstart Conan O’Brien during a brief interregnum (2009–10), and gracefully bowed to the inevitable with the accession of Jimmy Fallon to the...

    What’s changed in 22 years? Jay Leno took a look back at the years since he first took over hosting duties at the Tonight Show in 1992, and offered a few quips about the differences. Weiner jokes are still just as funny, only now they’re about Anthony Weiner, who Leno skewers almost immediately. Perhaps Leno wanted to look back, because looking forward means trying to deal with his unemployed status — and that means ObamaCare, Leno tells the audience (via CNS News):CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO Leno provides another bookend by talking about Hugh Grant, whose appearance in 1992...

I don’t need to be fired three times — I get the hint,” Leno joked to a friends-and-family studio audience as he ended his 22-year run Thursday night.

    Those old enough to remember Johnny Carson will recall copious tears over the course of his two-day Tonight Show goodbye – capped by Bette Midler’s serenade of One For My Baby. That was how people felt about Carson. He’d been a part of a nation’s lives for three decades, the last person besides their spouse many people saw before going to bed. I can’t imagine Jay Leno’s final Tonight show Feb. 6 generating that much emotion. Guest (and heir apparent) Jimmy Fallon will be amiable and polite.

    Anyone in the news business will tell you that a side benefit is the diverse number of people one gets to meet. Jay Leno, who leaves "The Tonight Show" on Feb 6 after a 22-year run (retire is not the right word in his case), is one such person. The circumstances surrounding our first meeting involved a column I wrote 15 years ago in support of his wife's activism on behalf of Afghan women. Jay and Mavis Leno invited my wife and me for a visit. Things progressed from there. Last October when we attended the show, I asked him...

I’m rarely up that late, but I tape his shows and watch his opening monologue the next night for laughs.

She already had big rims put on her Rascal scooter, you know. She's got the -- she's going all out. Now, as for how much...

    We've already seen audiences fleeing MSNBC, the network that religiously carries the Obama administration's water, as a number of scandals rock the White House. Now, it looks like the long-running battle between Jay Leno and David Letterman is also being affected by the toxic headlines swirling around the president.

    Andrew Breitbart's Big Hollywood ^ | 22 May 2013, 12:42 PM PDT | Jay Leno Unloads on Obama in Devastating 'Tonight Show' Monologue
    President Barack Obama is a nightmare for political comedians. He's too cool, too smart, too ... good at this whole leadership thing. That was the bill of goods comedians sold us five years ago, an excuse which prevented them from mocking Obama as they did every previous Commander in Chief. Jay Leno wasn't buying that pile of horse manure. Leno has consistently tweaked Obama in his Tonight Show monologues since the early days of the president's administration, the same way Leno handled President George W. Bush and President Bill Clinton. This week, Leno turned up the heat to scorching levels...
