Who is Jay Leno?

Born in New Rochelle, New York, on April 28, 1950, Jay Leno, is a comedian and television talk show presenter from the United States.

He made a name for himself as a stand-up comedian in nightclubs and on television in the beginning of his career thanks to his amicable take on current events and political humour.

He began appearing regularly as a guest host on NBC’s The Tonight Show in 1987, and he replaced Johnny Carson as host of the programme in 1992.

Leno immediately gained a reputation for his friendly demeanour, and the programme took home four Emmys.

Leno, a well-known auto enthusiast, later portrayed a mechanic on the sitcom Last Man Standing.

Jay Leno owns well over 180 cars, which is a sizable collection. The collection includes a variety of vehicles, including the newest supercars, priceless oldies, and even a few unusual steam-powered vehicles.

What happened to him?

Unexpectedly, one of the cars in Jay Leno’s garage caught fire, and the flames burned his left side of the face. The comedian was sent to a burn centre in Los Angeles, California, right away.

The comedian’s mishap happened on Saturday while he was working underneath a car and a fire started. Leno suffered quite substantial burns to his face, hands, and chest when he was extricated from under the car.
