Jay Leno, the host of NBC’s "The Tonight Show," will put on a benefit concert for the victims of the Gulf Coast oil disaster.
"Stand Up for the Gulf Coast: A Special Evening With Jay Leno to Benefit the Gulf Coast Community Foundation" will take place Saturday, Aug. 21, at 8 p.m. at the Beau Rivage Theatre in Biloxi, Miss., one of the towns hit hardest by the oil spill.
In a statement, Leno said, “It’s great to be able to do shows like this. We did it for flood victims in Iowa; we did it for auto workers in Detroit; we did it for victims of Katrina and others. We tell a few jokes and help out people.”
