Jay Leno, one of the most loved talk show hosts of all time, is finally calling it a day and will tuck America into bed for the final time on the "The Tonight Show".
"The real thing about doing comedy is capturing the soul or the essence of the joke or of the person, I don't do impressions, but you become that person. That I think is what makes it work. You put that little extra percent that puts it over the top, that seals the deal," said Leno.
The 62-year-old comedian will wrap up 22 years as host of the famous NBC network program.
He's due to hand over the reins to Jimmy Fallon, who currently hosts "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon".

"It is the most amazing thing. This is history. I am honored and it is a privilege for me to get this job and the opportunity to host this show," said Fallon.
Leno's last show looks set to be something nobody would want to miss.
"I am a huge fan of Jay Leno and I enjoy him so much. He made me laugh until I cry," said viewer Charlotte Sharp from Los Angeles.
"We do have a standby pass, but standby possibilities do not seem very likely. We may get shut out,” Minneapolis resident David Vick told Reuters.
The show will also return to its New York roots after Johnny Carson moved it to LA in 1972.
