Jimmy Fallon Gives Jay Leno a Lifetime ‘Tonight Show’ Guest Spot Invitation
On this morning’s Today show, Matt Lauer sat down with Jay Leno and Jimmy Fallon to discuss the upcoming Tonight Show host transition ahead of Leno’s final episode tomorrow night, and Fallon was sure to make it clear that Leno is welcome as a guest on the New York Tonight Show anytime. He told Lauer:
I’m just looking forward to the new chapter in my life. I told Jay, I gave him a roundtrip ticket to New York — coach, because he’s humble. He could always upgrade if he wants. Honestly, as many jokes as he wants. The stage is his, he knows that. So whenever he wants, he’s got a stage.
