Though many Israelis know at least some English, the English they speak isn’t always the same language Jay Leno does, the former late-night talk-show host said over the weekend.
On Friday’s “Tonight Show,” Leno – appearing as a guest on the show he used to host -- told his successor, Jimmy Fallon, all about what happened backstage in Israel when the comedian had the chutzpah to request a Coke with ice and to ask whether he should walk out onto the stage after he was introduced.
Leno, who isn’t Jewish but has said he is “very pro-Jewish, very pro-Israeli,” was in the country in May to host the first Genesis Prize ceremony, at which the award was presented to former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
