Jay Leno's final shows as host of the Tonight Show are this week. Jay's last show is Thursday, with guests Billy Crystal and Garth Brooks. I'm a fan of Jay's and have tremendous respect for all he's accomplished. They always say to go out when you're on top, and Jay leaves the Tonight Show #1 in the ratings!
I was on the show once, sort of! I was in the audience for a Tonight Show taping. Dana Carvey was a guest that night, and he was hilarious. I was one of the people who got to run up and "high-five" Jay as the show opens. Actually it was a "high-two" as his pinkey and ring fingers brushed mine." When people come over, I make them watch this episode, then freeze the tv and I point out "There I am! There's the back of my head!!!" It is my only claim to fame.
