Kimmel admits Leno was once funny, but hasn't been for 20 years
Another Jimmy Kimmel interview, another dig at Jay Leno.
Following the two choice words he dropped last summer to make his opinion of “The Tonight Show” host blatantly clear, Kimmel has told Rolling Stone Contributing Editor Jonah Weiner that Leno’s stand-up comedy isn’t worth watching anymore.

“Leno hasn’t been a good stand-up in 20 years,” he said while driving past an LA comedy club where Leno performs every Sunday.
The insult does have one silver lining, though. At least Kimmel admits his late-night competition was funny at one point in his life.
Still, that was two decades ago and, according to Kimmel, he has only sold out since then.
“As a comedian, you can’t not have disdain for what he’s done,” Kimmel continued. “He totally sold out. He was a master chef who opened a Burger King.”
