Surviving a freak car fire last year somehow didn’t stop 72-year-old comedian Jay Leno.
Apparently, neither did a dangerous motorcycle accident that left him with several broken bones.
Rather than rest and recuperate, the former “Tonight Show” host will fulfill his tour date obligations and perform to audiences all over North America at his 15 shows from Feb. 2 through April 8 which include gigs at Salamanca, NY’s Seneca Allegany Events Center on March 18 and Englewood, NJ’s Bergen Performing Arts Center on April 8.
And you needn’t fear — Leno claims he’s fine.
“I’m OK,” Leno told the Las Vegas Review Journal. I’m working. I’m working this weekend.”

As noted earlier, Leno sustained major injuries after two car accidents this year.
In mid-December, a car garage explosion, left him serious facial burns.
“The fuel line was clogged, so I was underneath it,” Leno, 72, explained to Hoda Kotb in an NBC News “Today” show interview.
“And I said, ‘Blow some air through the line.’ And suddenly, boom, I got a face full of gas.”
More recently, he disclosed that he got knocked off his motorcycle.
He then disclosed he has a “a broken collarbone…two broken ribs (and) two cracked kneecaps.”
Still, he was able to joke about it.
Whether his punchline is any good is up to the eye of the beholder.

If you’ve been meaning to binge Leno’s famous car show, you can starting literally right now.
All seven seasons of the long-running, recently canceled show where Leno “explores all things automotive” can be streamed on Peacock.
Guests on the show include Sting, Jeff Dunham, Adam Carolla, Gabriel Iglesias and Alonzo Bodden.
The show was dropped by CNBC after the network announced they were looking to air reruns of “Shark Tank,” and “Undercover Boss” as well as original business documentaries during primetime hours.
