Some chick stole some jokes from “The Tonight Show” and will most likely have her ass handed to her in court. From TMZ:
“There was a 194-car crash in L.A. — Luckily, the guy in the first car was still able to complete his call.”
That joke might be funny to you, but Jay Leno isn’t laughing. The funnyman claims that this wisecrack — and several other jokes — were published in joke books without his permission. Now, Leno and comedienne Rita Rudner, several comedy writers and big-gun NBC Studios, are asking a judge to protect their punchlines. In a lawsuit filed yesterday in federal court, the comedians claim a “comedy writer” named Judy Brown “sent representatives to comedy clubs to record comedians routines, so she can then copy the jokes into her books and profit from the original comedic works of others.” Brown is also accused of ripping material straight from “The Tonight Show.”
It could be worse, Jay. She could have stolen material that was actually funny. Hey-OOOO!!!
