Jay Leno gives health update as he’s seen behind the wheel for first time after being released from hospital
Jay Leno was in his happy place once again as he was spotted for the first time cruising down the street in a silver 2002 Mercedes-Benz just one day after being released from the Grossman Burn Center.
Leno was released from the West Hills hospital on Monday after a 10-day stay where he received multiple surgeries for third-degree burns to his face, chest and hands from a fire that broke out at his garage in Burbank.
"Everything's OK," Leno said while laughing. He admitted that he's ready to go back to work, too, and will be "performing Sunday at the Comedy Magic Club." When told to get some rest, Leno quipped, "Yeah, I need barbecue."
