Leno Takes His Swings at Michael Richards

11/21/2006 10:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jay LenoA day after Michael Richards apologized on "The Late Show with David Letterman," Jay Leno took to "The Tonight Show" stage and delivered a few zingers at the expense of the man we know as "Kramer."

"I had a horrible gig last night," Leno began. "I had to follow Michael Richards at The Laugh Factory."

But Leno didn't stop there. He continued, "As you know, Michael Richards said some very offensive things at a comedy club the other night in Hollywood. People were booing, yelling, some got up and walked out. Of course, people waiting outside for the second show had no idea what was going on. They just assumed Carrot Top was on stage."

Check out Leno's jokes for yourself on tonight's episode of "The Tonight Show."

Once you say things as terrible Richards did, you deserve to get made fun of.

Richards may have been wrong, but nobody is attacking the other guy that was making racial slurs also. Just because Richards was White and the other guy(s) were black, both were in the wrong. I guess this guy will think twice for heckling a comic.......

what michael richards did was really really bad, but jay leno is the most unfunny guy to ever get a show. no one in comedy respects him. he still makes Brokeback jokes and would still be doing dancing ito's and lewinsky jokes if his writers would let him. he steals every bit from letterman and stole stuttering jon from howard stern because he has no clue as to what he's doing, even after 14 years. johnny carson wanted to give the show to letterman and leno stole it. i'll forgive kramer before i ever forgive that untalented f*ck!

Jay you didn't pick on MIchael because "Seinfeld" was on NBC and Mel Gibson made a movie that made you liberals squirm with anger over religion? Hmmm?
