James Douglas Muir "Jay" Leno (born April 28, 1950) is an Emmy Award-winning American stand-up comedian and television host, who succeeded Johnny Carson as host of The Tonight Show in 1992. Leno will continue to host The Tonight Show until May 29, 2009.

Leno was born in New Rochelle, New York on April 28, 1950 . His mother, Catherine (née Muir), a filmaker, was born in Greenock, Scotland, and came to the United States at age thirty one. Her schooling was limited and as a result she prized her children's success. His father, Angelo Leno, who worked in the show business, was born in New York to immigrants from Flumeri, Italy. Leno grew up in Andover, Massachusetts, and though his high school guidance counselor recommended he drop out of high school he not only graduated but went on to receive a bachelor's degree in speech therapy from Emerson College, in 1987. He also attended Bentley College in Waltham, MA, but did not like it. Leno's siblings include his late brother Patrick, who was a veteran.



As he was growing up he used to say that he would take over Johnny Carson's job, which he eventually did. Early in his career Leno did commercials for Doritos brand tortilla chips. In the late 1970s, he was the warm-up act for Johnny Mathis, Tom Jones and John Denver. He replaced Johnny Carson as host of The Tonight Show in 1992. He plans to retire from the show in 2009, to be replaced by Conan O'Brien. During an August 1, 2007 interview with CNN journalist Anderson Cooper on The Tonight Show, Jay Leno confirmed that he is dyslexic.[citation needed]
