Acted as monologue advisor to Jay Leno from 1992-2001.
Jimmy Brogan served as a writer for the opening monologue on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno". Jimmy would sit to one side of the audience while Jay told his jokes. On occasion, Jimmy and Jay would make a bet to see if a certain joke worked or not. If Jimmy won, Jay would walk down the stage, and pay Jimmy. If Jay won, Jimmy would come to the stage and pay off the bet. All this was done while the camera was running.
Appears regularly on Sundays at the Hermosa Beach Comedy and Magic Club as an opening act for Jay Leno.
