Jay Leno is returning to the comedy stage Sunday night, two weeks after sustaining significant burn injuries in a gasoline fire. The former “Tonight Show” host will perform in front of a sold-out crowd at the Comedy and Magic Club in Hermosa Beach, California, according to a spokesperson for the club. Leno, an avid car collector, had been working underneath a vehicle on November 12, when he was burned. The 72-year-old underwent two surgical procedures to treat his injuries, his physician, Dr. Peter Grossman, said. Leno suffered burns to his face and hands. His doctor noted that Leno was walking around and cracking jokes during his stay at the Grossman Burn Center. The hospital announced in a November 21 news statement that Leno had been released.
