    Jay Leno seems to make a lot of comments about overweight/fat people.

    He makes it seem that all of us that have weight problems are gluttons and/or lazy :hunf:

    I quit watching him years ago. His "humor" isn't my style.

    What a jerk! How 'bout we make fun of his big chin or how he keeps his hands always in his pockets..not good platform posture. Only kidding about reciprocating such bad name calling. There's nothing funny about being overweight.

    Comics thinks anything is fair game for a laugh. I despise the humor of Kathy Griffin, Chelsea Lately and the other women comic who make fun of stay at home moms and anyone that have Christian beliefs. I like Jerry Sienfield, Ray Romero, Tim Allen, type of stand up comedy.

    We do watch him and from what I have seen he isn't exactly skinny himself...the old saying goes, people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. Maybe he doesn't have any mirrors in his house? crafty_linda_b

    Big difference between Jay Leno & the old Johnny Carson Show - Johnny always made fun of himself and Leno pokes fun at other's expense. I don't watch him for that reason. Its a cruel form of comedy IMHO.

    I'm with you.......I really cannot stand to watch Kathy Griffin especially......there is no humor there for me.
    There are numerous comics that I won't listen to because of my Christian beliefs and their language.

    Is this the skinny Jay Leno that we don't know about or the chubby one that's on TV all the time? :hunf:

    I agree! And their language is horrible!

    I so miss Johnny Carson. I stayed up until my eyes burned so I could watch him and I loved his sense of humor. He really was great.
    I wouldn't waste my time on Jay Leno. Believe me, he is NOTHING TO LOOK AT!!!!!!!!!

    I don't like the one who was accused of harassment either, but I can't remember his name.

    I don't watch or listen to any "comedian" who makes fun of people with problems or traits they can't help. That's cruelty, not humor (IMO). :cry:

    I have no use for any of them I don't find them the least bit funny. When Johnny did the Tonight Show for all those years he was always a great laugh and he didn't have to insult a group of people or use foul language and he'd have me almost in tears with laughter.

    I'm surprised at how society has accepted the use of foul language as just part of our every day culture. Only when they get sued or a celebrity calls them out do they ever apologize for something they said. Then I don't think it's even them apologizing for the comment, they're just reading it from the cue cards from the show.
