Jay Leno: Israel is ‘a little paradise in the Middle East’

Israel is “a little paradise in the Middle East,” television comedian Jay Leno, in Israel to host the first ever Genesis Prize ceremony, told Ynet on Wednesday.

Here Are the Anti-Obama, Anti-Kerry Jokes Jay Leno Delivered in Israel

Jay Leno humble as always, praising Israel:

The Blaze (May 23) — Comedian Jay Leno joked about the Obama administration’s Middle East policy Thursday night while hosting an awards ceremony in Israel honoring former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the audience.

According to the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, Leno drew his “biggest laughs and applause” when he said, “President Obama has declared the month of May Jewish American Heritage Month. He is calling it an opportunity to renew our ‘unbreakable bond with the nation of Israel.’ And he knows it’s unbreakable because he’s been trying to break it for the last five years.”

Shortly after, he turned his sights on Secretary of State John Kerry, saying, “I’ve been doing my research. According to the Central Bureau of Statistics, here in Israel the most popular boys name is Noam. The least popular boys name? John Kerry.”

Relations between Netanyahu’s government and Obama administration have been strained over failed peace talks with the Palestinians, exacerbated by suggestions by Kerry that Israel could become an “apartheid” state.

Leno said this was his first trip to Israel, though he has always felt a strong affinity for the Jewish state, telling the Associated Press earlier this month, “It’s a great honor. It’s a great country. It’s a great people.”

He said that while he sees both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, he considers himself to be “very pro-Jewish, very pro-Israeli.”

“At some point in your life, you have to sort of take sides. I tend to side with the Jewish point of view on many things, especially issues like this one. I realize how important Israel is,” Leno, who is of Italian heritage, told the AP.

“It is a democracy in the Middle East and I don’t like to see the little guy getting picked on by the big guy,” Leno told the AP in Jerusalem.

“It’s the only democracy in the Middle East. I look around the Middle East and I see people being stoned to death because they’re gay and women being not allowed to drive or not allowed to vote. And here’s this one little paradise in the Middle East where freedom reigns and there’s a democracy, you vote people in you vote people out,” he told an interviewer for Israel’s Ynet before the awards ceremony (the full interview can be viewed at this link.)

Jay Leno earlier this month joined protesters outside the Beverly Hills Hotel that is owned by the oil-rich Southeast Asian nation of Brunei which recently instituted a criminal code based on Islamic sharia law which includes death by stoning for homosexuals.

Leno told the protesters, “Evil flourishes when good people do nothing, and that is pretty much what this is. This is not complicated. These are not crazy left-wing wacko people.”

At his Thursday performance, Leno also joked about local Israeli political scandals.

Leno said he tried to get tickets for a friend. “When I first tried to get him tickets, they were sold out. But luckily, two tickets became available when former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said he wouldn’t be using his. You guys are tough. You sentenced your former Prime Minister to six years in prison! Did you hear Olmert’s defense? Not the best strategy. He blamed the whole thing on the Jews.”

Olmert received a sentence of six years imprisonment in early May after being convicted of bribery.

Leno went through a list of past Israeli prime ministers, saying “Israel had some great leaders, David Ben Gurion, Golda Meir, Menachem Begin, Yitzhak Rabin. People were really touched by them. Well, of course, not as many people as were touched by former President Katsav.”

Former President Moshe Katzav is currently serving a seven-year prison sentence for rape, sexual harassment and other charges.

“I was stunned by how many Israeli politicians are going to prison. When you ask an Israeli politician what his cell number is, it has a whole other meaning,” Leno said.

Leno was hosting the first ever granting of the $1 million Genesis Prize in Jerusalem which was given to Bloomberg for his public service and philanthropy.

Bloomberg said he would use the prize money to set up a new fellowship via the Genesis Philanthropy Group, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Watch: This Flight Attendant Actually Had People Roaring With Laughter During Her Safety Presentation

TheBlaze (April 14) — Most well-seasoned air travelers know the drill: The moment you hear the words “brief safety demonstration,” you probably tune out and crack open your book.

But a Southwest Airlines flight attendant who “had a long day” used a bit of humor and successfully commanded the attention of the entire cabin.

“My ex-husband, my new boyfriend and their divorce attorney are going to show you the safety features of this Boeing 737 800 series,” the flight attendant, identified by Digital Journal as Marty Cobb, said, eliciting laughs from the passengers heading to Salt Lake City.

Here are a few of the highlights from her comedy sketch posted to YouTube Saturday:

  • “Position your seat belt tight and low against your hips, like my grandmother wears her support bra.”
  • In the unlikely event of a water landing, “everyone gets their very own, teenie weenie yellow Southwest bikini.”
  • “As you know it’s a no-smoking, no-whining, no-complaining flight. It’s a please and thank you, and you are such a good looking flight attendant flight.”
  • “If you’re traveling with small children … we’re sorry.”
  • “Basically, just do what we say and nobody gets hurt.”

Watch Pedestrians Hilariously Answer Jimmy Kimmel’s Preposterous ‘Confusing Question of the Day’

Late night comedian Jimmy Kimmel took to the streets of Los Angeles Friday, pranking pedestrians by asking them his “confusing question of the day.”

Meshing all the week’s news into a preposterous question, Kimmel asked individuals, “Do you believe Crimea’s vernal equinox should remain in the multiverse, or do you support Ukraine’s acquisition of the Lululemon?”

The question is designed to absolutely make no sense, Kimmel explained, but that didn’t stop individuals from giving their opinion.

“Um, I support it,” one unidentified woman answered.

“Why?” asked the interviewer.

“Well, you know, first of all, I think that I believe in their beliefs,” the woman responded.

Schwarzenegger Will Ride in a Tank and Destroy Things for Charity

YouTube Preview Image

The action hero and former California governor is selling a chance for fans to ride shotgun with him in an M47 tank while he runs a whole bunch of stuff over, an idea he says he got from Reddit. Proceeds from the raffle will go to charity

After crushing a “steak and egger” sandwich and frying an ostrich egg on his tank with the Epic Meal Time gang last week, Arnold Schwarzenegger is now going to crush things with his tank.

You can enter to win a chance to ride shotgun with him in his M47 Patton tank and — with cigars in hand — run over everything from bubble wrap to a piano to a copy of Million Dollar Baby. The shenanigans benefit After-School All-Stars, which plans after-school activities for disadvantaged children.

According to the description of the video on Schwarzenegger’s YouTube channel, “This idea came from Reddit, so I want to give credit where credit is due. Specifically, it came from “ipeeinyourshower” who has better taste in video ideas for charity than usernames.”

In a January promotion for After-School All-Stars, the former California Governor posed as a trainer at his old stomping grounds Gold’s Gym. The video went viral, racking up 17.2 million views to date.

Funny Seth Rogen gets serious in DC

Actor Seth Rogen delivered a prepared statement during a U.S. Senate hearing on Alzheimer’s disease Wednesday — and it’s safe to say it was unlike most Capitol Hill testimonies.

“Thank you for the opportunity to testify today and for the opportunity to be called an expert in something, because that’s cool,” Rogen jokingly began. “I don’t know if you know who I am, chairman. I know you never saw ‘Knocked Up,’ which is a little insulting.”

Rogen then delivered a heartfelt testimony about his mother-in-law’s struggle with Alzheimer’s, peppering it with jokes poking fun of himself.

See How Jimmy Fallon Kicked Off First Star-Studded ‘Tonight Show’ After Replacing Jay Leno

NEW YORK (AP) — If Jimmy Fallon had already proven he was a natural hosting NBC’s “Late Night,” he left no doubt Monday that “The Tonight Show” now fits him like a glove.

As promised during the much-promoted run-up to his “Tonight Show” debut, Fallon made no drastic changes to the “Late Night” formula that had served him for five years. He remained funny, gracious, bubbly and, above all, comfortable presiding over a show that was different mostly for its earlier time slot, its classier production values and legendary brand name.

One of the more memorable moments came when Fallon and Will Smith performed the “evolution of hip-hop dancing” together:

Back at his desk, he voiced what seemed like an aside: “To my buddy who said that I’d never be the host of ‘The Tonight Show’ – and you know who you are – you owe me a hundred bucks, buddy.”

With that, Robert De Niro burst through the curtain and plunked a hundred dollars on Fallon’s desk.

But that wasn’t all. In rapid succession, a parade of other celebs circled through right behind him. They included Joe Namath, Rudolph Giuliani, Lindsay Lohan, Lady Gaga, Mike Tyson, Stephen Colbert and Sarah Jessica Parker.

See How an Emotional Jay Leno Said Goodbye to ‘The Tonight Show’ After 22 Years

BURBANK, Calif. (AP) — Jay Leno has said goodbye to “The Tonight Show” before, but not like this. The comedian became tearful and choked up Thursday as he concluded what he called the “greatest 22 years of my life.”

“I am the luckiest guy in the world. This is tricky,” said the emotional Leno, stepping down for the second and presumably last time as host of TV’s venerable late-night program. Jimmy Fallon takes over “Tonight” in New York on Feb. 17.

Leno shared that he’d lost his mother the first year he became “Tonight” host, his dad the second and then his brother.

“And after that I was pretty much out of family. And the folks here became my family,” he said of the crew and staff of “Tonight.”
