Jay Leno Stand-up Roots

After his college years, Jay Leno moved to Los Angeles and did some writing for the sitcom Good Times - which were his early efforts in the business - and the backbone to his own career.

The career for Jay Leno started in the 70s when he was a comic touring as a stand-up comedian and booking as many as 300 gigs annually. His appearances in shows such as The Tonight Show With Johnny Carson and many others continued to captivate the audience in the 80s - until the year of 1992, when Carson retired and passed the NBC hosting duties for The Tonight Show to Jay Leno.

TV Career

The amazing work done by Jay Leno in entertaining the world and doing what he knows best has sustained the popularity of the show as well into the 00's. In 2009, Leno agreed to step down from The Tonight Show after entertaining the world for more than 15 years. However, his move was not to retire from the job, but host his own prime-time program - The Jay Leno Show - which lead to Leno ultimately returning to the Tonight Show for four more seasons.

Jay Leno is also known for writing several books including 'How To Be The Funniest Kid In The Whole World' which is a collection of jokes and riddles but also a solid advice to kids who want to succeed as comedians. The glory he received for his work can be translated through his awards, which include over a dozen Emmy's and many other recognitions.
