Book Description: 

Jay Leno’s Tonight Show comes alive in this book by insider Dave Berg, who spent 18 years as Jay’s co-producer.  There were always two shows: the one on stage and the one behind the curtain. This narrative weaves both together, featuring the show’s most legendary moments, including Hugh Grant’s game-changing mea culpa, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s shocking political announcement, and the historic booking of Barack Obama as the first sitting president ever to do a late-night show. But it doesn’t stop there.  Every page is full of zany, wacky and serious moments with celebrities, political and sports figures at The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Foreword by Jay Leno and endorsements by Laura Bush, Bill O’Reilly, Bill Maher,  Gary Sinise, James Carville & Mary Matalin, Larry the Cable Guy and more.

Review

 

I love to read nonfiction titles that draw you in and speak to you, making you part of the conversation. This book does just that.  It is like sitting around table with author Dave Berg, producer of the Tonight Show, as he tells, amuses, enlightens, and entertains with one episode after another.  It is an engaging book that shines a light on what it was really like behind the scenes of the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. His stories are infectious and his delivery witty. I learned a lot, too, about the TV industry and personalities that intrigued me. You won’t be disappointed with this read.
