Jay Leno is back on ‘The Tonight Show,’ but as a guest! The former host returned to his old stomping grounds to sit down, goof around and mock his successor, Jimmy Fallon. Click to WATCH the hilarious clip!
Long time no see, Jay Leno, 64! The 22-year host of The Tonight Show made his first appearance as a guest on the Nov. 7 episode. He performed stand-up, reminisced with Jimmy Fallon, 40, and threw some hilarious shade at the new host!
Jay Leno’s ‘Tonight Show’ Return
Less than a year after he handed over The Tonight Show reigns to Jimmy, Jay returned to the set!
He performed a hilarious stand-up routine to show off his impeccable comedic skills and then sat down with Jimmy, but this time in a guest chair!
The pair took a trip down memory lane as they talked about various photo shoots they had done together over the years. They reminisced over a shoot with Jay’s old-timey motorcycle. It was too funny!
But when Lucy Liu came on the show as Jimmy’s guest, that’s when things got hilariously heated. This was the Elementary star’s first time on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, but not on the previous Tonight Show. Jay told Lucy that she could come to him if Jimmy’s hosting skills weren’t adequate enough for her.
“This is your first time with Jimmy, but I was your first,” he teased.
Earlier in the night, Jay told Jimmy to never get a classic car because he wouldn’t have any idea what to do with one.
“Look at these hands ladies and gentlemen. That’s like a puppy’s paw,” Jay said, while holding up Jimmy’s hand. “This is the hand of a five-year-old and it’s actually pink!”
It was wonderful seeing Jay back on The Tonight Show! We loved how he and Jimmy could joke around all in good fun! Let’s hope he returns again!
