After a gasoline fire at his garage on Sunday, comedian Jay Leno suffered burns to his hands and face, which were treated at the Grossman Burn Center in Los Angeles.
Leno, 72, said in a statement to Variety that he was well and would only need a few weeks to restore his balance.
According to a report in the People magazine’s Sunday issue, Leno was forced to postpone his appearance at a financial conference scheduled to take place in Las Vegas. Leno’s illness was regarded as serious, but his family was unable to share much information about his condition.
In an email to conference participants, a spokesperson for Financial Brands stated that Leno’s family was unable to provide further information and that he had to cancel the event due to a significant medical situation.
People claims that a sent email merely mentioned that the subject was alive at the time. Therefore, he and his family are in our thoughts and prayers.
According to TMZ, Leno was hospitalized after a fire started close to his auto garage. Leno’s health was apparently the subject of rumors, which were brought on by some of the remarks he made regarding excessive cholesterol.
NBC’s “The Tonight Show” was hosted by Jay Leno from 1992 to 2009 and again from 2010 to 2014. When NBC launched “The Jay Leno Show,” it had terrible ratings during his initial run and stirred some controversy. Following that, the program earned nine Emmys for outstanding variety programming while Leno was hosting.
Jay Leno’s passion for automobiles was the impetus for his Emmy-winning web series. The program, titled “Jay Leno’s Garage,” is about automobiles and automobile-related subjects. When Leno officially left “The Tonight Show” in 2014, he concentrated on this side business.
Given the importance of noise, movement, and explosion in the 20th century, he thought the show would be about anything that does any of those things. Additionally, he said that the show’s goal was to highlight the passion of its creators and their personal histories.
Leno received the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor in 2014, the same year he told a reporter for The Washington Post that he preferred discussing cars over anchoring a late-night talk show. In his opinion, this made his guest on “The Tonight Show,” Batman, more relatable than other superheroes.
He said it because it was more of a passion for him. Leno had 92 motorcycles and almost 180 vehicles as of 2016. According to a 2017 US News & World Report report, he now owned more than 130 motorcycles.
