Jay Leno Tickets - Leno Scores Laughs With Cast Of 'jersey Shore'
Jay Leno has been tearing up the late-night circuit this year with his new Jay Leno Show airing at the early 10 p.m
. timeslot, and he's had several A-list celebrities on his show ever since its premiere date on Sept. 14, 2009. The Jay Leno Show has earned high ratings over the past few months, and perhaps after 15 years in the late-night industry Leno has perfected his recipe for success.
Notable celebrities like Tim McGraw and Drew Brees have recently made cameos on Leno's "9 @ 9" (a time zone specific alternative to "10 @ 10") question-and-answer session during episodes of The Jay Leno Show in December, but perhaps the month's most memorable celebrity appearance came on Dec. 16, when three members (and self-proclaimed "guidos" and "guidette") from the MTV reality show Jersey Shore came on the show to be part of Leno's Jaywalking segment "Battle of the Celebrity All-Stars: Jersey Shore Edition."
In the Jeopardy-like trivia segment based on "things you should have learned in school," Jersey Shore's Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Paul "Pauly D" Delvecchio squared off in what was soon the greatest laughingstock of the show, with the cast members crashing and burning on the set. The Situation ultimately took home bragging rights as the trivia show's winner, but it was Snooki who gained the most attention, giving bogus answers to questions on where the U.N. is located (Albany), the current Vice President's name (Krone), Mikhail Gorbachev's 'wall' (a dam in Denver) and, perhaps most insultingly, the identification of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi in a photo (Lionel Richie).
Just like Jersey Shore itself, this "Celebrity All-Stars" segment on The Jay Leno Show was one hot mess, bringing the audience to fits of laughter as the three Italian-American reality show contestants showed their brawn - err, brains.
While it was the Jersey Shore participants who took the credit for this hilarious segment, Jay Leno's biting commentary did nothing to simmer the situation. Leno's witty remarks and cheerful yet hilarious temperament are part of what have made him such a staple in late-night television, and it's no wonder that Jay Leno tickets for not only his TV segment but also for his stand-up comedy have been hot items for years.
Leno, an East Coast native best known for his observational comedy and trademark protruding chin, has been a crack-up on the public scene for years, making his grand entrance onto the entertainment scene in the 1970s after moving to Los Angeles, when he started doing stand-up professionally. In the 1980s, Leno made several appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, and he eventually succeeded Carson in 1992, beating out fellow funny guy David Letterman for the job.
The Tonight Show with Jay Leno proved to be a huge hit on NBC from 1992 to 2009, after which Leno gave his late-night time slot to Conan O'Brien. In September 2009, however, Leno became the king of 10 p.m. cable, with his own Jay Leno Show airing on NBC. Despite his very successful TV gig, Leno continues doing various stand-up shows, gracing the country with live performances. Tickets to see Jay Leno perform live are available online, and these are red-hot items on the comedy front.
