Baby Boomer Celebrity Birthdays April 28

1950 (61) Jay Leno…Host of “The Tonight Show”

My favorite quote about Jay Leno is from Conan O’Brien last year when Jay was demanding and later took back the hosting duties of “The Tonight Show”…

Conan said…”You can have anything you want in America unless Jay Leno wants it.”

Trivia You May Not Know About Jay Leno
He and his wife of many years have no children.

Maintaining classic cars and motorcycles is one of Jay’s hobbies.

Owns over 30 classic cars and over 40 motorcycles. His very first automobile was a 1934 Ford V-8 truck, which he restored himself at the age of 14.

He Suffers from dyslexia.

Under the teacher’s comments of Jay’s 5th-grade report card read, “If Jay spent as much time studying as he does trying to be a comedian, he’d be a big star.

Is a “seasoned” Monopoly player; likes to play with real money and the “race car” is his favorite playing piece.


Although Leno’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” (1992) predecessor Johnny Carson appeared on rival late night talk show “Late Show with David Letterman” (1993) twice (in a walk-on stage appearance soon after Letterman’s show debuted, and later in a filmed segment), Carson never once appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” (1992) with his successor. Many, including Leno, took this as a sign that “Johnny likes Dave more” and would have preferred David Letterman to have been his “Tonight Show” replacement.

Claims that after having seen his idol Elvis Presley perform “Teddy Bear” in the movie Loving You (1957), made him determined, at the tender age of seven, to pursue a career in show business.

Roomed with Freddie Prinze when both were fledgling entertainers, during which time, he taught Prinz how to drive a car.

On an episode of “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” (1992), he claimed that he got in his first auto accident a mere 81 hours after getting his driver’s license.
