Jay Leno- New Rochelle's Ultimate Chinwagger


James "Jay" Leno was born in New Rochelle, New York, in 1950. The Tonight Show host with Scottish and Italian ancestry, is known for his love of cars- he owns 100! As well as his motorcycle charity events benefiting muscular dystrophy research.  He has been married to Mavis Leno since 1980 and the pair don't have any children.The Above clip shows a young Leno during his first stand-up stint on the show he would later host as king of late night TV.  This TV host has kept "chins" wagging for decades and leading with his jaw has served him well.

Johnny Carson hosted The Tonight Show from 1962-1992. Jay took over in 1992 and is currently the host of the top rated nighttime talk show. He had a year off when NBC decided to be creative and replaced him with Conan O'Brien in the 2009-2010 season. Jay gladly returned to host with his massively mesmerizing mandible.
