“This show will be about anything that rolls, explodes and makes noise,” said the 64-year-old stand-up comic in an official statement.

Jay made a temporary return to television in August, when he hosted Jay Leno’s Garage: The Ultimate Car Week, marking the funnyman’s first television appearance since departing The Tonight Show in May of 2009.
