Jay Leno addresses Oscars slap, ‘clean’ comedy ahead of Kravis show

Comedian, author and former Tonight Show host Jay Leno brings his family-friendly standup show to the Kravis Center on Sunday night.

Just like the rest of us, Jay Leno has some thoughts on “The Slap.”

As he prepared to travel to West Palm Beach for his Sunday night stand-up comedy show at the Kravis Center, the comedian, television writer and former “Tonight Show” host discussed the slapping incident between actor Will Smith and comedian Chris Rock last month at the 94th Academy Awards in Los Angeles.

Smith, who was attending the ceremony as an Academy Award nominee — he won for Best Actor in a Leading Role — walked on stage as Rock was speaking and slapped the comedian in the face in response to a joke he made about Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. Smith then returned to his seat and continued to berate Rock.
