Joan Rivers To Jay Leno: You’re The Captain Of The Titanic Go Quietly
Joan Rivers is the latest comedian to set her target on Jay Leno and The Tonight Show. The 79-year-old says, “Jay Leno is like the captain of the Titanic … He should go down quietly.”
The Fashion Police host is very familiar with The Tonight Show, because in the ’80s she was Johnny Carson’s permanent guest host.
In an interview with Inside Edition, Joan says Jay’s problem is — he is not memorable. “Tell me one great Jay Leno line. You mention anybody else, and they say, ‘Oh Letterman’s Top Ten … he’s brilliant. Fallon, my God, what he does.”
She has some advice for Leno: “[He should] look at his millions of dollars … and say, ‘How lucky a man am i?’”
