Funny Leno Vehicle
13 January 2005 | by (Detroit) – See all my reviews

Years before he was made host of "the Tonight Show", Leno was star of this made for cable special. It's been almost 20 years since I've seen it so I can't remember most of the specifics but I remember laughing through most of it. I think Jay went around and examined various aspects of the American Dream with bits of his stand-up routine thrown in. One line that I still laugh about and have remembered all this time was when Jay was talking about the old huge cars from the 50s and being in an accident in one of them. The Cops would arrive at the scene and one would say "You can turn off the siren Bob, he was driving a Buick". Probably would make more sense if you had seen this. At any rate, if you find Leno funny like I do, you would probably enjoy this.
