Jay Leno joke-stealing, old news according to Howard Stern
For more than a decade, radio personality and host, Howard Stern has railed against Jay Leno lifting bits from him; at least the clean material from Stern. Howard has not given up calling Jay names whenever he gets a chance. In January 2011 he was a guest on one of the first few shows that Piers Morgan aired when he joined CNN, and he repeated his accusations.
The Fox TV affiliate in Boston reported it the next day. “Just the mere mention of Jay Leno’s name makes me to want to vomit,” said Stern. The most recent joke-stealing charge leveled by Stern against Leno concerns a comedy bit from Stern’s radio program, that centered on a live chicken predicting winners of NFL games. “This must be a giant ‘Punk’d’ on me,” said Stern following the incident. “This guy’s ripped off like ten major things from my show. But the chicken thing we did for years.
