Jay Leno was Craig Ferguson's guest on the Late Late Show last night, and he talked about what he plans on doing after he leaves The Tonight Show in February.
Leno's last show will take place on Feb. 6 of 2014. Jimmy Fallon will be taking over as The Tonight Show's new host.
"I'll go back on the road. I like the road 'cause when you're a comic, you know when it's working. On TV, you don't know if it's working," Leno said. Ferguson quickly rebuffed, suggesting that was not actually true: "You do know if it's working. If you're on a show for twenty years and it's doing well, then you know that it's working!"
"I'll mention that to my boss," Leno responded.
When Ferguson asked Leno about what he had lined up after he got done with the show, Leno suggested he'll figure it out after.
But Ferguson comically insisted that Leno must have a plan and must "plot a revenge" and get a hold of "those guys at NBC" after he exits. At this point, Leno revealed that he has worked with fourteen different presidents at NBC. He also picked his favorite -- Warren Littlefield -- of the lot.
The two went on to talk about Leno's comedy, lazy comedians (who exploit fillers in their sets), and Leno's eventful trip to Monaco.
Bill Maher was Leno's guest on the Tonight Show last night and he also spoke -- in what seemed like a bit of swipe -- about Leno leaving the show.
"Did you see [Egypt] let Mubarak out of jail?" asked Maher, while talking about the crisis in the Middle-East. "I mean, turns out this guy may be more effective. They got rid of him but they may bring him back because he was better. Kind of like what NBC keeps doing with you, Jay."
