Tonight, We’ll Say Goodbye with a Few Laughs
First off, it’s my 300th Post on Jimmy’s Daily Planet!
Second of all, I want everyone to know that I wore a denim shirt to work today in honor of Jay Leno’s final show. His comedy style is unequivocally as strong as denim fabric. In fact, here’s a joke I made up, inspired by the style of the one and only Jay Leno:
“There was a recent report that 500 Radio Shacks are closing. Isn’t that unbelievable…I didn’t know there were 500 Radio Shacks still open!?”
At 12:37 a.m., Jay Leno will officially sign-off from his 22-year reign as The Host of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. There are two guests booked for his final show (that we know about…), with his first Tonight Show guest and comedy legend Billy Chrystal returning, as well as musical guest and good friend Garth Brooks.
It will surely be an emotional day and show for Jay, his producers, writers, band, stage hands, cue card writers, etc. And let’s not forget about the final studio audience, plus the millions of viewers and faithful fans watching him for the last time on the iconic stage in the comfort of their own homes.
Tonight will be amazingly bittersweet, with several dynamics playing out, even if they don’t make the front-page headlines. However, these milestones and generational markers will be detailed and explored more in-depth in tomorrow’s post once the bright lights have been turned off forever in the Burbank studio along with Jay’s tenure as The Host of The Show.
For today, below is a video with some of the funniest bloopers or unscripted moments from Jay’s countless interviews and comedy bits.
Enjoy and have yourself a few good laughs this “Throwback Thursday!”
Be sure to stay tuned tonight because I think we all have a feeling that the Tonight Show staff have saved the best surprise for last…
